Hi guys,
I'm 24 and have had acne forever, but up until a year ago I was controlling it fairly well with Benzamycin Gel, which always seemed to work for me. Then the company that made it went insolvent and nothing else has seemed to work, I am currently on Duac gel which has helped a bit but not massively, and have just started taking Yasmin - does anyone know how long it takes to start having a positive effect?

The spots I get are not generally massive, but they are very red and leave red marks that take months to go, so my skin always looks bad even if I don't actually have loads of spots at the time. Benzamycin Gel seemed to sort that out! I am considering Microdermabrasion, has anyone found this useful? Also, is it true that Benzoyl Peroxide ages the skin?

I would be so grateful for any advice, thanks!
