Hello! I am new to the acne board....I have just recently had problems with acne on my face--I am 26 years old, and my lips and around my lips are super sensitive. So, with my lips being super sensitive and red all the time it is hard for me to use any face cleanser other than Cetaphil. I recently ordered proactiv online---any advice?!! Thanks for any help!!! Oh, and many of the pimples i get are like the cystic kind....UGH!!! :eek:

Good luck with Proactiv. I've really enjoyed their line. People seem to either love it or hate it. I, too, had a problem with cystic acne. It's gotten much better. I'm on spiro now, but I feel like Proactiv has helped me as well.
I have been using Proactive for a while now maybe 6 months i tried to stop using it cause it made my face oily (washing 2 times a day), my skin got smoother but still had breakouts, prolly cause all the oil. Now i have found a routine were i wash with proactive in the morning or whatever and then later on my skin will get a lil oily (usually like in 6-7 hours or whatnot) Then i wash my face with Neutrogena Oil-Free foaming face wash, this product caused my skin to try real bad when i used alone. (had to use moistureizer afterwards) But when i combined the two, my skin has been clearing up, and the redness/scarring is going away with the help of the proactive solution.

I found this routine has kept my oil production down and my face to clear, might try it. BTW i usually get my acne on my face, jaq, chin and forehead. I also get cystic acne, i dont know if these products prevent those, cause i still get those on my chin or face evry once and a while. But my face looks awesome now, its been 4 days and i wake up every day to no new pimples.(knock on wood)

Now im gonna break out since i talked about it :(

Acne = Devil
