What do you suggest for acne and pimples?
Honestly - I've asked the same thing and the answer is there is no good answer. You have to take age, location of breakouts, skin type, and other things into account. I've seen people recomment Proactiv but I think it's awful for your skin. I think it's about picking products suited to your skin type & trying that & nothing else for at least a month to see any change. You dont want to try a bunch of different samples of masks, moisturizers, etc while you're trying out a new cleanser or something because you won't know what's helping/hurting.
I use witch hazel twice a day on my face. it seems to keep my acne down. also wash my face with clearasil ultra face wash. I know everyone's face is different but hopefully that will give u some ideas. you can get everything at Wal-Mart.
oh and I use an oil free moisturizer. it's a gel by Garnier. and it's pink. can't think of the name off the top of my head . it's something like moisture rescue gel.
I use Clinique on the spot acne solution for any time I feel a pimple coming. It is like magic and helps it go away like overnight or at most 2 days. I've always heard great things about it too & I've been using it for last 2 yrs & I have combination skin.
You can get it at sephora it's like $15 I think.
Benzoyl peroxide usually works pretty well for face and body acne
This is a really cheap helpful method. Take baking soda and mix with a little bit of water to make a paste. Keep it on until it dries then wash off with hot water. Keep doing it 1 to 2 times a day for as long as it takes. Make sure to moisturize. Hope it works!

Try the oil cleanse method. You won't ever look back.
Do you eat a lot of chocolate?!
Google oil cleansing method...I personally use extra virgin coconut oil because it has antibacterial properties
no i dont eat a lot of junk food
thank you by the way :)
I'd say go to a dermatologist and have them prescribe you antibiotics it works by killing the bacteria that causes acne they will also prescribe you a topical like retin a or an antibiotic cream

thank you :)
I suffer from acne and my advice to you would be to go to a dermatologist and use gentle skin care products that will not further irritate your skin. Also do not feel like you have to wash your face constantly, even if your skin is really oily. Doing this can dry out your skin and cause even more oil production. I wash my face twice a day, once in the morning with warm water only and once at night with Simple face wash. I found that over the counter acne products did nothing for me, I really wish I went to the doctor sooner. I'm not on antibiotics and differin and finally my skin is improving. I didn't get instant results, it took about 3 months to start seeing a significant improvement but I am really happy with it.
Now on antibiotics*
