i am 21 and have acne scars all over my face. its not pretty but theres nothing i can do about it but wait fot nature to take its course(you know how long THAT takes!) anyways over the past year the pimples have considerably reduced and i guess its due to clindamycin and isoretinoin creams i have been using.you should most probably visit a dermatologist and have it checked out because there are apparently various levels/grades of how they diagnose your condition. also DONOT wash your face more than 2 times a day(maybe it can be stretched to 3).i know,cuz i speak from experience. also try putting some facepack or some coolant in case live in some real hot and humid place(like i do).

I can offer you these tips as I have been in your situation. 1. Go to a dermatologist atleast once a month to have deep facial cleaning. 2. Use toners with Clindamycin or Witch Hazel 3. Moisturize even if you are oily 4. Try the having a clay mask atleast once a week as this will purify the skin.Try Aztec healing clay.

Definatly look at your diet. Are you taking a good quality multi-vitamin? That will help too. What type of cleansing regimine do you use now? Start by washing your face regularly. 2 times a day. Personally, acne wash is too strong for my sensitive skin, so I use a sensative skin was in the morning and the acne treatment at night before bed. Make sure you include a toner, a moisturizer, and a spot treatment. Also, 2 times a week use a nice gentle scrub to help keep the pores clean. Then look at your diet. It is sooo important to eat well. Dr Nicholas Perricone has some GREAT books on hwo our diets affect our skin and over all health. He's been on Oprah a few times. The books can be purchased at any major book store or online.

Wash your face regulary but do not apply normal soap to to your face. Use good quality face wash. Take care of your eating habits, drink a lot of water daily.
