Lets see, I'm 21 years old. Male, Taurus, I like long walks on the beach and ... uhh oops, wrong message board

like i said, i'm 21, M. I only started getting really bad acne the past year and a half. I have oily, sensitive skin. My skin is REALLY sensitive. I found this routine works quite well for me, i'd say it cleared me up 90%. Which is really quite good. It took about 6-8 weeks to start seeing results, but was well worth it.

As far as the abstention goes, well, i read about someone else on this message board who said it. He mentioned at least giving it a try for 2 weeks. I figured I might as well give it a shot. For me, i think this helped me clear up 100%. But who knows, i could be wrong.

For moisturizer, yes, i do have to use one, the Retin A will cause you to have really flaky skin, as will the Ketsugo. I use Neutrogena Moisturizer with SPF 15. It's supposed to be very good, and so far (4 weeks of use) has not given me any problems. The previous moisturizers i have tried (3 of them) have all caused me to break out somewhat - as i said, my skin is very sensitive.

However, my Derm recommended a moisturizer called "Dormer" I have never heard of it before, but he gave me some samples and i must say that it's really very good. When the Neutrogena runs out, i'll def look to pick up this "Dormer Moisturizing creme"

By following this routine i get maybe one pimple every 2 weeks or so. But the Retin A seems to get rid of them within 48 hours or so - when they do come up.

Good luck, and feel free to ask me any other questions.
