I have DRY/sensitive skin. I HAD moderate acne and had been prescribed Minocycline, Bactrim, Tazorac, and Triaz. None worked for me. The type of acne I had was inflammatory and whiteheads, lots of them. The following is what I did to CURE my acne. Some of it goes against what everyone tells you. But I get on average, 1 zit every week and a half, and they're not red and itchy, they don't come to the surface, don't hurt, and go away within 2-3 days.

Olay Frag Free Total Effects 7x moisturizer
St. Ives Hydroxy peel-off Masque 2x a week
Nutribiotic Cleanser w/grapefruit seed extract - leaves no residue at all
Nature's Cure 5% benzoyl peroxide cream (i don't take the pills anymore)
Neosporin! I put a little on my finger and DAB it on dry areas and scar areas, and anywhere I see fit. I DO NOT AT ALL break out from it. I used to use mineral oil on my face and I liked that a lot better than jojoba...

Vitamin A&D - 10,000 IU
Vitamin C 500mg
Vitamin E 400mg

All that has cured my moderate acne. I had extensive scarring and my face is almost "normal" looking. My acne was the worst it had ever been in February 2005. In march, after using these products, I no longer had acne. From reading stuff on here and education myself, and spending money and trying things out, I cured my own acne. Keep in mind, everyone has different skin, so what worked for me might not work for others. But it's worked beautifully for me.

I don't know what I'd do without those products. As a side note, the Olay stuff has really really made the tiny wrinkles around my eyes almost non-existent. The masque has made my skin soooo smoooth, and the soap is just amazing, my face actually feels clean! They also make a moisturizing Nutribiotic cleanser, but theres no need for it.

One of the key things I do, is I don't rub my face at all. I don't rub in the moisturizer, In the palm of my hand i mix the nature's cure stuff and the Olay, then pat it on my face and neck. Let it dry, then pat on neosporin.
