Me, Too.

I've had it since I was 11, in 5th or 6th grade. Everyone said it would go away for me, too, but it hasn't. I'll have a good week where it's almost gone...but then I'll get a horrible breakout. It really bugs me, I've tried Proactiv, and I don't think my family can afford perscription treatment or a dermatoligist. Even if my skin looks great to me, it probably doesn't to others, because there are small scars that just won't go away. I feel like, even if acne goes away eventually (which it HASN'T yet), I will always have ugly, uneven skin tone.

if you take roacutane you must always look after your skin!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
do not dermobrase dont ever do that. !!!<br />
<br />
some peoples advice should be questioned<br />
<br />
you need to look after your skin and not scratch it away addhock<br />
<br />
acne is an internal complaint<br />
<br />
poison p.s i hate the word puss has to work its way out. your skin is an outlet for it. yes it is hormonal and almost certainly diet related what has that got to do with dirt or oil.<br />
<br />
and yes i believe hereditarily people are predispsed to suffer its complaints.<br />
<br />
but please do not take dead bullets like accutane or roacutane.<br />
<br />
they shatter and cause many other problems. that is my experience.

One of the major causes of pimples, acne and/or blemishes is dead skin not removed from the area, namley the face. The best thing for this is a scrub or something to remove this obviously.<br />

I have treid a lot of treatments also, the only thing i have found to be successful is the Beautyskin acne lamp. I have used it for the last three months for 15mins every day and my acne has completely cleared up. i am so much happier in myself, the extra bonus is that its reducing my acne scarring which i have had for years, im going to carry on using it to see if it will comletely remove my scars, i will keep you informed! I really would suggest trying it though, it has changed my life. <br />

Good luck anyway.xxx

There are lots of laser treatments and acid peels that can fix the marks and uneven pigmentation left behind by acne. Did the Proactiv work for you?
