I'm getting married October 12 and really want to look good on my wedding day, and hopefully for pictures before!!!!!
-23 year-old female
-oily skin
-suffering with moderate acne about 1-1/2 years, but never had acne during puberty
-it's worse on the sides of my chin and forehead, but occasionaly bad on my cheeks as well
-I also have bad red marks left from previous blemishes.

-Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
-Clean and Clear cleanser for sensitive skin
-L'Oreal Foaming Cleanser for Oily Skin
-Dickinson's Witch Hazel
-MURAD acne line (worked about 3 weeks, then stopped)
-Proactiv line
-Neutrogena Clear Pore Treatment
-Neutrogena Deep Pore Treatment
-benzol peroxide in varying strengths (2.5%-10%, creams and gels)
-minocycline antibiotics
-milk of magnesia as a facial mask (the only thing I've liked so far - it really absorbs oil and has nothing in it that's bad for your skin)

CURRENTLY USING: (dermatologist reccommended and prescribed, told me to use nothing else):
-Acne-Aid bar soap (??? I thought bar soap was bad!)
-Differin cream
-Adoxa 100mg antibiotics
-Neutrogena foundation, the skin-clearing type
My skin has gotten worse with this. It's been 6 weeks now.
So now I've started using the milk of magnesia again, and it's helping. I also started taking E vitamins and drinking a gallon of water a day. I also just started avoiding sugar (which I love).

I'm a student and have spent so much money on trying to find a cure for this, so I really don't want to spend any more on things that don't work! I won't go outside without gobs of makeup to cover me up. It's driving me insane and I think about it all the time!!!

What else can I do???
Should I try B-5?
Glycolic acid peels for the red marks?
Other vitamins?
Any herbal supplements, etc...?

Thank you for taking time to read this. Please respond if you think you can help me in any way!!!
