Every day before I went to bed. And SPF during the day is a MUST. I hope it will help you!

It kills the bacteria but only do it at night because sunlight is not good for it and will cause hyperpigmentation. The thing with oily skin is that if you clean and strip away the oils the skin kind of freaks out and produces more oil (and more acne) so find a really good acne moisturizer that wont make you break out when you wash your face.
Always wash with warm water it opens your pores.
i use Clinique 'anti-blemish ' for three weeks now... and my skin is getting better and better you were right, it was absolutely worth a try

Just wanted to say, I'm starting my third month of accutane. My skin has been clear from week 3. I'm so happy. I still have some scars, but I'll have to wait to take care of those later. If anyone's considering accutane, take it!

Has anyone here tried Makeup Artist's Choice products? I am thinking of trying the Mandelic Acid peel. They get fairly good reviews on Makeup Alley.

I don't know if they're using concealer, but Clinique carries M Cover, natural looking cover up.

The best thing to fade scars is a retinoid, or a chemical exfoliant like glycolic acid (with a sunscreen on top). Using straight hydrogen peroxide on your skin as some have recommended in this thread is... definitely not protocol. I think you'd be severely irritating the skin and compromising its protective barrier, at a minimum.

Hi guys
I have to admit I really don't have big acne problems.. just the regular normal pimples everybody has once in a while, but I used to had bad acne when I was a young teenager, so even though i don't have bad scars or anything I like to try using good treatments to keep my skin healthy. I've been using this treatment: http://www.nuskin.com/en_US/products.../01110391.html (The Nu Skin Clear Action Acne Medication System) and I HIGHLY recommend it, if you want to try a great treatment and if you can afford it do it because it was a really great experience, it really treats: present, past and future signs of acne. The only problem... *cough cough* It's kind of expensive and I need to buy something cheaper because I'm a student right know and money goes away really fast with books and everything!

I would like to keep my skin looking healthy, but I need something cheaper!, so I've been reading LOTS of acne treatments reviews, and also diaries of people who have tried many acne products (because I'm really hard to get convinced by the 1sts references and recommendations I read ) and I discovered this treatment that appearently has worked for many people with serious acne problems and there are more positive comments than negative comments about it: http://www.clearpores.com/?u=73701&c=1
It's call ClearPores and it caught my attention `cause appearently it attacks not only the outside problems of acne, but also with the inside causes... and the most important thing i care about: natural igredients! most of it's ingredients seem to be natural... my skin is very sensitive so I'm very selective about the products i use. Idk, I just thought maybe someone else here would like to try it too.

I`m curious about trying ClearPores (maybe I will in a few months ) but I haven't try it yet so I won`t make any kind of reviews about it, the one that I really know it's a really great acne treatment is that System from Nu Skin, so good luck everybody and i hope this info might be helpfull

Ive been using Dr Montagne-King for a month and WOW. My skin has improved so much. So happy, and it's all natural. Such a difference though!!

i have horrible acne atm, as soon as i think one thing is working it just comes back even worse! i also have a ton or scars (mostly down the sides of my face) left over from when i had bad acne years ago, not even make up can cover them!
someone told me to mix one part tea tree oil and one part rosehip oil and rub it on the scars, has anyone tried anything like this? im hesitant to try it incase it makes me breakout even more

thesecretninja, Tea tree oil can be great for acne, but it's not very effective for scar treatment, if at all. As I mentioned in the previous post, retinoids (including prescription topical creams like Differin, Retin-A and Tazorac), BHAs (salicylic acid being most common - look for products with a 2% concentration) and AHAs (glycolic acid being very common, and mandelic acid has a great reputation) are pretty much universally regarded as the way to treat scars. They are also the principal means of dealing with active acne, so there is double the benefit.

These increase the rate at which your skin renews itself, much like a physical exfoliant would, only much more effective and less damaging. An important note, however, is that they make minimizing sun exposure a real necessity.

I recommend searching through the skincare boards over at makeupalley.com, or registering and posting your question there, since there are some people with encyclopedic knowledge of this kind of thing. As with all things skincare, what works well is highly individual, but investigating these products is a good starting place.

As a side note, I would ignore the popular notion that vitamin E is good for scars. You're more likely to get more breakouts from the oil than you are to see reduction in scarring.
