different people get acne for different reasons stress, hormonal, eating too much oily foods, dirty face, bacteria on face, etc. and each person has different method that works for them. here are some the worked for me: 1. drink at least 8 glasses of 8 oz water a day 2. you can add a tablespoon of lemon juice with each glass. 3. wash face with glycerin soap 4. using a mud mask once a week, steaming your face once a week, a good astringent like witch hazel, a natural exfoliator once a week. 5. eat healthy...no junk food nor fast food. 6. someone mentioned that putting colgate toothpaste on your zit before bedtime will make it go away by morning.

I think it would be better to consult a dermatologist on this issue. I used to try over the counter medicines and it didn't help. I have mild acne by the way but it flared up a few months ago. I was diagnosed with hormonal imbalance (i'm female) and was given an anti-acne pill to sort out my hormones. I guess exercise would help too, since when I was younger and much active, I haven't had problems with my skin. I hope you'll find a solution to your problem.

I know that it also has to do with all the junk people eat. Diet and excercise are VERY important also believe it or not after spending hundreds of dollars on face products for my teenage daughters I found the one thing that works the best which also worked wonders for me as a teenager is READY....witch hazel followed by calamine lotion right before bed time. In 2 weeks they had a perfectly clear face. GO FIGURE!!

Genetics, hormone, and stress. Some say that it comes from eating a lot of sweets.. But, to me it can come from anything. Try Proactiv Solution, this should work..
