I have had acne since I was 11 years old and now am 42. I have PCOS amongst other probs which causes acne anyway, I mainly have it on my chin and under there and on my back shoulders part, its not really bad, but some times is on my chin as I get hairs growing there to, due to the PCOS prob and have to keep pulling them out which does not help. I was told that once my puberty went mh spots would go, but they never did. I just live with it now.
I started with Acne at 22, until then my skin was amazing. I have this problem with picking spots, its like an addiction, even when I havent got a break out. The only thing that works for me is Oxy 10, yeh it burns like hell for the first time but its worth it. I also use witch hazel tinted moisturiser, this hides all my blemishes too.
I agree, last thing at night, wash your face with Dove soap and warm water, then aply benzoyl peroxide 5% all over the effected areas..... it takes a few weeks to bing things under control, but is very effective

Please do not use bar soap on your face! If possible, use PURITY, by Philosophy, if that isn't possible, then liquid Cetiphil. The ingredients in making bar soap is awful. Also, Emu Oil is good, a small amount goes a long way, plus it is an anti inflammatory.
