Question Posted Thursday July 15 2004, 4:54 pm

I have been getting zits ever since the beginning of 7th grade. I really hate it. And I use Clean & Clear to clear them up, but the product doesn't exactly work. Do u know any product that will work? What advice would u give me? I looked at ur Zits link, but i've tried all of that..and i still get zits. Please tell me what products u use! It's hard to walk in school when a lot of boys are staring..

The best way to work on zits is to not play with them too much, and wash your face every night. I'm in 7th grade too, and I'm going through that phase. I use Neutrogena Clean and Clear. Hope this helps... Please rate me.

PRO-ACTIV they sell it at the mall, and its about 40-80 bucks for the whole system. I use it for prevention and its great! One of my friends had pretty bad pimples and it cleared her right up.

hey darlin. i totally know how u feel. i went to a dermatologyst in my area, and she prescibed a bunch of stuff bfr. we found anything that worked. if u have super sensitive skin like my'n then u may not be able to use products with benziol peroxide, or if u do they may be making ur skin worse, and drying out parts that shouldn't be dried out. although dermatologysts are expensive, this is one investment that really can improve ur life b/c once u have clear healthy skin u have more confidence, u cary urself better, ur more likely to make more friends etc. which ever derm. u end up going to, ask them about prescribing u with tetracycline which is a pill u take twice a day. each refill is about 12 dollars, and u get it refilled once a month. each prescription lasts about 4 months, but they can always prescribe more. also ask about the cream called differin. it has 0.1% adapalene which is a non-drying agent, but is very potent. u wear this only at night, and costs about 110$ for each refill, which is about every month. both of these prescriptions make ur skin very sensitive to the sun, so u would need to be willing to stop tanning and whenever ur in the sun be sure to use a very strong sunscreen. another thing that i did when i first started this regimine was microdermabrasion which costs about 100$ per session, and i had i think 6 sessions done. u get it once a week for 6 weeks, and what they do is go over ur skin many many times with what's like a super strong tiny vacume. it sucks away the top layer of skin cells and also causes pimples and other blemishes to rise to the surface so they can be taken care of quicker. after they do the vacume thing, they do extractions. this is using special tools to extract the pus from pimples and the other impurities from clogged pores. it hurts like a mother, and ur skin does look irritated for about a day afterwords, but after the six weeks, and if u stay on the tetracycline and differin, u'll have the absolute most beautifull skin ever. even though it's expensive, always remeber what the end results will be, and stay confident. another thing that u can do is to invest in a really good makeup, like clinique. they have a foundation called clarifying makeup clear skin formula, which doesn't clog pores, and it covers uneven skin tones miraculously. all their makeup is made with nothing that can harm ur skin, so u can wear amazing makeup everyday and not be worried that it'll make ur skin worse. also, remember to always smile, cuz that brings ppls attention away from imperfections and shows them that although ur not perfect, u know how to have fun and are a confident person. oh! one last thing: never pick at ur skin! this is pretty much an imposible thing, but when u do that, it causes cell walls to break, and the bacteria to spread, causing the blemishes to spred. so make an appointment with a dermatologyst, go to clinique, wear a smile, and don't put ur hands on ur face except to wash it and put on ur makeup (the cleanser i use is aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser which has 0.5% salicylic acid which is also very gental but works well (i wash w/that twice a day) and i use a moisturizer ever night bfr i use the differin called olay sensitive moisture therapy cream. this helps the skin not get dryed out while not clogging the pores, so the differin still works.) good luck! any more questions u can im me on aim at sarahlee258skt

If you have had acne for a while, you may have a severe acne condition. Try Proactiv, you can get it online and from infomercials. If you have tried it already, go to your mom and ask her to make an appt. with a dermatologist, he can prescribe you a stronger medication, such as accutane or retin-a-micro. And I know acne can cause people to feel bad about themselves, but just use a good concealor & DON'T PICK YOUR SKIN! Everyone gets zits sometimes, just hold your head high <3

I use Retin-A micro, but I think it's prescription. It's a little drying. Wash your face every night, too, and THEN use the pimple stuff. Hope I helped!

Aww! I'm sorrie!! I really don't have any special tips for you. All I can do are recommend products. I use Noxzema, and that works well for me. I also use Neutrogena and that does wonders. We've all heard those rumors that putting toothpaste on it makes it go away quicker, and I'm not saying it doesn't! Perhaps if you're really desperate you should try it anyways. If it's really that bad, you should seek guidance from a dermatologist who can diagnose you specificly. I do hope things get better for you. I'm sorrie I can't be of more help. I wish you the best!! Take care, and sta beautiful!! =D

DorkyJay27 answered Thursday July 15 2004, 5:31 pm:
HAHA! I know that story! Okay,this is gonna sound so weird, but when it comes to those big red/white head zits put toothpaste on them. It stings but it dries out the zit and you see immediate results,make sure you keep it on there for prob. about 30 matter how much it just to keep it clear and for the lil zits, anything phsidoerm makes usually works for me. So I would advise that.Hope I helped.
