Only if you're interested in natural remedies---
I'm a 24 year-old male and I struggled with acne until a few years ago. I found that a few things helped greatly over time: 1) Routine is very important. I found that washing my face gently in the shower once in the morning and once before bed at least 8-9 hours apart eventually made my acne go away. Sometimes your skin gets way too dried out when you're using products or other things too much. I think this is one of the most common problems not addressed. It also depends a bit on whether you are getting outside in the sun - which leads me to #2) Make sure you do not have allergies to any of the products you are using and find out what your allergies are. I found that getting allergy shots helped me from breaking out - it wasn't as much an acne problem. Some foods cause you to break out around your mouth specifically.

If you address those issues and still have issues, I would see a dermatologist and see what products are best for your complexion. It's worth it. You need to know what your complexion requires. I have very sensitive skin and found that I needed to wear sunscreen whenever I go outside. As far as acne products, the proactive formula is the best I've found. Acne is controllable. I found that after a steady routine over a month time led to the best results.
