I'm Drinking Water and I've Cut Down on Dairy... Now What?

I’ve been having microdermabrasion and a chemical peel once a month for about 4 months now. I’m not really sure it’s working the way I thought it would. I am still getting those horrible cyst-like outbreaks and I feel like I have more whiteheads.

I hate the fact that not only do I have worse skin than I did as a teenager but it is no longer so resilient and “fresh”. I just want beautiful, clear skin.

Since the treatments and products I have been using aren’t seeming to make a big impression I am considering a different course of Acne Treatment.

I’m really thinking about trying Proactiv®. The commercials make it look like a miracle. Anyone have any experience with it?

I LOVE Proactiv. I've been using it for 8 or 9 years, and I just got my husband using it, too. It works the best out of anything I've tried before, and every time I stop using it, my skin breaks out.

My neighbor started using Proactiv a few months ago and SWEARS by it. Her skin is looking much nicer too.

I don't personally use it, but I can vow for my neighbor in that there is a noticeable difference in her skin ... and attitude.

I tried it once (when I was working for the company that does the order taking and distribution). I wasn't a fan, but my skin was way different then. I had tons of over-drying. You know, you can buy it at Jordan Creek at a kiosk instead of waiting.

I have been using the acne line from DHC, which is affordable, too. I'll even let you try mine if you're interested...up to you!

My daughter used it and said it was horrible. Didn't do a thing. She used it faithfully for several months. She finally went on just a regular Clinique regime and it seemed to do more for her.

I'm 35 and I have skin exactly like yours - exactly. Good luck with the Proactive. I tried it and didn't like it. Wal-mart sells a brand called Acne Free which is the same as pro active, cheaper, with a few extra benefits. It was alright, but I didn't notice any real change....until I started using my L'Oreal Wrinkle De-Crease cream all over my face daily. I'd had it for a while and only used it on my eyes because my skin is so oily in the T zone that I could probably fry an egg on it if the sun was hot enough - ick.
I ran out of all my other acne creams so I started using it 'til I could remember to pick some acne stuff up. I put the L'Oreal on right after I shower in the morning and at night before bed (if I remember) but without fail in the morning.
I noticed a big difference after about two weeks. I wasn't breaking out even during my periods. This month I only got one tiny cyst like bump on my chin. It's nothing short of a major miracle for me and I've suffered with cystic acne since I was about 17!
