Re: acne problems

If your acne is bad/getting worse, I wouldn't wait around trying facial cleansers from shops.
I got acne at 14 and by the time I went to the doctors and a dermatologist, it was seriously bad. I've always thought that facial cleansers help if you get some spots from sweating/facial grease, however do not help much if you have acne due to genetics or other reasons such as I did.
A dermatologist will know what is best for you and they have many different and effective treatments. If your acne is bad they may offer you an isotretinoin based medicine which worked for me and two of my friends at school. (all of us had really bad acne)
Don't wait around - see a doctor before it gets too bad

Good luck

Re: acne problems

Do an aspirin mask and it will help dry up the pimples but it will make your face dry afterwards and you must use an oilfree moisturizer, so your body doesn't produce even more oil to compensate. I use either jojoba oil (natural oil) this is the closest oil to what your body actually makes, so your body thinks it is it's own sebum and actually makes less oil. I normally use that but I also have hyperpigmenation marks from acne spots and I switch nights and use Olay definity to help lighten those. Google aspirin masks, it's cheap and honestly I really, really works. I tried everything, plus lots of people just can't go to the dermatologist and pay money for all kinds fo acne meds to try. Good luck.
