I am 21 years old and still have horrible acne...if I only had 2-4 pimples at a time I would be overjoyed. The only thing that has ever worked for me was green tea. I drank a cup of green tea twice a day (morning and night, decaf at night). I also used the green tea as a toner on my face twice a day after washing. At the time I was also using Clean and Clear's "Steam" in-shower facial as my daily cleanser, and their "Day" moisturizer. Both of these products are from their new "Soft" line. However, I believe that it was actually the green tea that worked, since I am still using both products, but not using the green tea, and the acne has come back. At any rate, I kept this up every day for about 2 weeks, just before my wedding, and on my wedding day my face was clearer than it has been since before I got acne. The reason that the green tea works is that it has antibiotic properties- it will help kill the infections in the pimples. It also has a lot of antioxidants that aid in cell regrowth so that your skin will heal faster.
