Me again (and thank you so much to the people who've answered my questions ^^).
Since 13, I've suffered from acne (who hasn't?). However, it's been over ten years, and I'm desperate for some solutions. It's not terrible, but the periodic sores are really taking hits on my esteem in the workplace and ability to function with other people. Another problem is my sensitive skin, especially after a shower, where I have to rub with cool water to soothe the extreme dryness.
I know this is a common issue. I would appreciate some good, common solutions which don't require me spending a fortune on cleansing oils, beauty treatments, and god knows what else. ^^
Medications I have used/am using:
- Clean&Clear persa-gel 10 benzoyl peroxide/max strength (used for worst sores)
- Clean&Clear blackhead eraser cleansing mask/salicylic acid (drys oily skin)
- Clean&Clear invisible blemish treatment (off and on)
- Almay clear complexion makeup (wish I didn't have to cake on so much!)
What am I doing wrong, and what should I keep doing? Rant as long as you want, just PLEASE help me to find a system that has helped you, if you have similar dry, sensitive skin. I can buy a couple things (e.g. moisturizer), but don't overwhelm me!
