Did you know there is more than one type of acne and in order for it to be treated effectively you have to know what type it is? How many of you have tried things that didn't work until you found what did work and what was it?

i only started breaking out really badly in the past year. i dont really know why, but i think my hormones have just been really messed up. i have a lot of hormone problems as is, and most of the acne is on my cheeks and chin which the doctors have said are signs of hormone imbalances. ive tried almost every product in the world. right now i am taking herbal meds and drinking green tea, but im also using a lot of aveda products. the problem with me now is that i might not break out a lot but when i do break out they are big and painful and always leave scars. its the scars that are the worst because they last for months, but the aveda products are really helping to get rid of the scars faster.

Acne have types? Wow. They get more nefarious than ever. I haven't really thought about it. I treat them all the same nuisance they are. For one who battled with acne all throughout puberty, I haven't done any researches. Can you enlighten us about these types? Or provide any good links about them? Thanks!

The best way I think is to wash it with mild soap... DO NOT use any astringents. These might just make things worst. Sleep early, avoid fatty foods and most of all, hygiene!

I havent found anythign that realy realy worked till i decided to try something natural and it worked. I wnet to walmart and got a 5 dollar natural mask and it works. I have only had it for a week and could tell the first day that it was working. Now im only hoping its long term and not short term
