I have not had any success what so ever with bio oil.....I think the mineral oil also clogged my pores. I find much better results with glycolics.

For acne scars I suggest using fresh lemon juice you squeeze out yourself. Put it on the pimple/scar and leave it there over night - every night - for a few weeks and the mark should fade.
Lemon works cause it's nature's bleach!

It won't do anything. It's just scented oil.

Like cup-of-tea says, glycolic or any other acid stuff will work best. Personally I prefer vitamin C, not the drug store versions, they don't work either, but stuff like Skinceuticals, Cellex-C, Cellbone serums or any other brand that lists 15-20% ascorbic acid in ingredients. Clear, luminous skin courtesy of vit C! Acids make my skin totally smooth and soft as well, but not as clear, so I prefer vit C more!

I've been using Clearasil pimples and marks facial wash for nearly two months! No change to my skin at all! Its my first facial wash so I don't know what to get next, a lot of people are saying Neutrogena is good, any advice? I'm only 14 so I'm gonna stick with the cheap facial washes for now. Any advice for pimples and pimple marks on my nose too? Worst feeling ever to have it on there.

I had clear skin all throughout my teens until I hit about the age of 18. I'm now 20 and I quit smoking last April not only for health reasons, but because I also suspected that it may have been contributing to my breakouts. My skin has stayed pretty much the same, despite a healthier diet and quitting smoking. I seriously feel that I have tried everything at this point, and my skin still is never clear. I do think that my acne is definitely hormonal.

I am now considering going on the pill, since I do know many people who said it was the only thing that cleared their skin up. My only concerns are that my sister was briefly on Yaz (about a month or two) and she said it made her feel extremely depressed, and she was crying on it non-stop until she went off of it. Has anyone else experienced this on this brand of birth control? Are their any other brands that work (i've heard the regular Tri-cyclen works as well)? And from anyone else's experiences on this board, did you find going on the Pill cleared their skin?

You should now go see a dermatologist he will see what kind of acne type you have and what treatments will suit you the best
if its regular acne youll get specific cremes and lotions
if its regular to severe youll start an antibiotics cure
if its severe you can start roaccutane
Im off roaccutane since oct november and nothing ever
came back its flawless now
Im also hitting the gym everyday and not smoking which might help too

I use benzycline (sp). That for me was THE best medicine ever, it clears my breakouts in a week. And as crazy as it sounds, St.Ives Apricot Scrub works too. It clears all my dead skin cells and deep cleanses my skin, and ever since then I have better control of my breakouts.

I take Yazmin and it made me very emotional for the first 2 or 3 months, but as your body adjusts its non existent any more. As long as your conscious of it and realise that its just the pill and your not going completely nuts you should be able to survive. It has definitely completely cleared my skin with the help of glycolics.

At 31 with hormonal acne (I have PCOS), and having tried everything else including Accutane with no lasting effect, I finally went on Yaz (the lower dose Yasmine) pill 7 months ago. The first 3 months saw a crazy amount of breakouts along my jaw line and neck (eww!), but now things have finally settled down and I'm seeing a lot of clearing. My dermatologist said that it typically takes 9-12 months before you see the full effect of the skin clearing. There is also a test you can take to see if you are prone to blood-clotting--it's called a Factor V (V as in 5) Leiden test, and it tests for common blood-clotting disorders that would make you more susceptible to a blood clot on the second generation pills like Yaz, Yasmine, and Nuvaring.

For the first month of the pill I was in a pretty bad mood (cranky), but reminded myself that I was on the pill. After about a month it went away, and I haven't felt out of the ordinary since then.

For those of you who are considering a birth control pill to help with your hormonal acne, I would say to try Yaz or Yasmine, and to keep in mind that your skin will flair up for a few months, but that if you tough it out, things will improve a lot within about a year!

I got a good clay mask with a 10% sulphur content that fights acne, and I use it for an overnight spot treatment. If you put it on the moment you feel you might be getting a cyst, it stops it in its tracks! It even helps larger cysts, drying them out and helping them to heal faster. It's fairly gentle on the skin, too; most sulphur products tend to be.

I did a similar treatment as roaccutane, but it is called ACNEMIN, and it worked great on me. Now I am taking care of the marks, but I will probably use the laser thing for acne scars in the near future.

Three weeks into using Clindamycin topical pads and my skin is flawless. I have a few scars left over, but all my acne is GONE. Seriously. I've tried every single product out there and have not had these kind of results. I'm so happy

**knock on wood it works for a long time!**

Hello, i'm new on this thread... And i wanted to ask you: Has any of you used the product DIFFERIN 0.1? I was recommended it by a dermatologist and then bought it (I don't have problems with acne, but i wanted a perfect/flawless skin that's why i went), so i started to use it, and the i begin having problems with acne, so i stopped using it... and now i want to use it again... any recommendations ? specially how to use...

Hello if you dont have acne problems you shouldnt be using differin in the first place
What I would recommend for regular skin that want to go to flawless skin is lots of gym (especially running and ropes)drink lots of water maybe a good vitamin c'peeling at the dermatologist too.
I would also recommend la roche posay and stiefel brands
Hope that helps
