Ask your doctor from some stuff. Seriously, that's what I did, and he gave me some cream that worked really well.

Other than that, all I can suggest is wash your face!

Keep your face as free of oil as you possibly can. It's the pour clogging caused by the oil that begins the process. There's a popular product on the market (darn name escapes me right now) that my sons have used that they said was pretty good. I'll try to edit it back in later but if it's after 4 won't be near an internet connection, sorry. This is not going to help much but the breakouts are a sign your hormones are trying to do their part to grow you into manhood. They just don't know when to let up! Remember to keep your skin as free of oil as you can, washing it at least morning and night in a non-oily soap (your Mom can help you with that).

I always had trpuble with that when I was a younger man , nothing seemed to work. But then a doctor told me to wash my face with antibacterial soap and keep my hands off my face. Washing your face only does half the job by removing the oil , antibacterial soap kills bacteria and since soap leaves behind a residue it also leaves behind the antibacterial chemical making it hard for bacteria to grow on your skin. Keeping your hands from touching your face keeps all the dirt and bacteria that inevitably cover your hands from winding up in the pores of your skin on the face. It worked for me and even though the pimples still appeared now and then it wasnt nearly as bad.

I always wash my face with antibacterial stuff and put really hot water on it. Not hot enough that it burns but hot enough so that it is a refreshing feeling.

Thanks for the advice everyone smile.gif I think im going to go ahead and try Death magnetics idea! But serisouly as far as keeping your face clean and stuff trust me, I do..I even wash with this stupid soap thats made just for clearing up the face and opening up poars. One of you suggested proactive? Do you know if thats an over the counter item?

I use Benzaclin and am fairly satisfied. It's a prescription though (I go to a dermatologist for other reasons).

Go see your doctor and see if you can get a prescription for treating your acne. Wash your face with oil free acne wash. It works well! Good luck to you!

I will divulge my skin care secret- After washing my face at night, I use rubbing alcohol on it. Just like you would use a Clearsil pad. Also, I moisturize every day and use sunscreen.

What is your family background? Usually people from southern europe (Italians, spanish) tend to have oilier skin, and generally worse acne, while northern europeans have much drier skin.

I think this is probably the best way to buy that stuff, my brother uses it and says it works pretty well but he made the mistake of ordering it through the infomercial number. They send the first package for 20$ then automatically enroll you in the monthly program of 40$ per month, he said it was a huge pain to cancel

None of the medicine or face washing scrubs worked for me. My technique was to slightly dampen my face and take a dry paper towel and wipe it off. You can see all the dirt and oil that you're taking off. It's pretty gross actually. It's also really cheap too.
