Post Less is More

I have been suffering from acne for 13 years. I've tried Retin-A, Tazorac, Minocycline, Tetracycline, Cleocin-T, Accutane, Proactive, egg yolk mask, Ortho Tri Cyclen, and just about everything at the drug store such as Oxy, Stridex, clean and Clear, Neutrogena, etc...Nothing has worked on my skin. I got so fed up with having red skin that was dry and irritated and oily. So, I decided to do away with everything and just use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer (oil free of course) and it has made a huge difference in my skin. My skin is no longer dry, red, or irritated. I also use a product that has AHA and BHA in it at night. If my face gets too bad, I'll use BP on my skin. My skin still breaks out because of my hormones, but it's not any worse than before. But my skin looks so much better because it's not red and irritated like before. I just started taking a bunch of Vitamins and minerals, including B5. I haven't been taking it long enough to see a difference though. So, if you have tried everything and nothing is working for you, maybe you should try to find a gentle oil-free cleanser and oil-free moisturizer or sunscreen and a non-irritating acne medication for spot treatment and just see what happens. My skin looks so much healthier and feels softer and smoother and my red marks are also less noticeable since I now have a an even skin tone.
