Hi. I am 26 and I have had lots of skin trouble too. I am not a dermatologist but am studying herbal skin care which has solved my problems. I am guessing that you are over-moisturizing to clog the ingrown hairs causing infection. To rid of the infection try cleansing with a simple glycerine soap cleanser (with NO dyes, perfumes or other ingredients) mixed with one drop of lavendar essential oil in the am and before bed. To go even further, steam your face (pan of hot water with say sandalwood e.o. and elder, with towel over your head for 10 minutes) to open up your pores.
As far as moisturizing, try applying only a nickel size of apricot kernal oil or sweet almond oil w/a drop of carrot seed e.o.. Basically, some herbs that may help heal your skin are: chamomile(expensive! but reduces swelling), sandalwood, carrot seed, lavendar, calendula. Another thing you may want to try is vitamin supplements of Vitaman A, Beta Carotene, E, C which are all anitoxidents. One thing I noticed that I should warn you about is that the condition may get slightly worse before it gets better, since detoxification is happening.
Essential oils and herbal remedies have really helped me, I think they could help you too. Hope this helps.
