If it's in your blood, you can't do anything about it, it will have its way and will come. However, if it's not in your blood then perhaps you are using powders or something that irritates your skin and causes pimples. I don't wish to recommend you anything for I don't know your skin type nor am I a dermatologist. For something as important as your face, you shouldn't go experimenting. Therefore, I recommend you visit your dermatologist to have your skin checked etc. That's what we did, and we're glad we didn't experiment on our faces. Good luck!

You should have gone back to her. So that she could adjust the medication. You see, medicines are not instant miracles that make you look good instantly. It's a process. When I went through my pimple time, we had to have several months where the pimples really came out. She told us that her medicines doesn't stop the pimple on the spot, it actually forces them out so that they'd finish their cycle faster. After a few months, they just stopped growing. Now, I'd have pimples but it's like one or two teeny tiny ones. Be patient. Plus don't be too cheap when it comes to your face.

make up in the first place is not the cause for make-up..the right thing that you should supposed to do to get rid of pimples is to sleep early and always wash your face with mild soap..try to check if the soap you are using is strong because maybe it's not good for your face..

I would start eating healthy and dont mess with them or they will get worse. If your worried about how they look get some concelear to cover them up until they go away. But make sure every morning and night time you moistorise and wash your face!

Proative helped me with mine. Sounds corny but is really works. Also try not drinking soda but water. That will help. Also try cutting down on your sweets. These are some tips I have tried.
