i have had hormonal acne for a year and have tried more products than i care to mention before finally finding something that works. i never went to a derm only because i dont think most doctors know what they are talking about. being on these boards and others, with real people who have found solutions have helped me the most! i had acne on my chin, jawline, and cheeks- horrible acne (cysts that turned brown and took forever to go away, white heads and black heads). my face continues to be VERY oily. i use the proactiv and boscia blotting linens for that.

being that my acne is hormonal ( i am 40 years old and in perimenopause ), i found that i could not use chemicals on my face. so BP cream is out for me. i can only use BP as a wash. i only use the dermabrasion cloths on my face (sold on ebay) here are the products i use:

A.M.:

carleys clear & smooth (wash for 30 seconds)
kirks castile exfoliating face wash (wash for 2 minutes)
thayers witch hazel w/aloe (as a toner)
mama lotion
kirks castile acne gel

P.M.:

same as above

EVERY OTHER DAY:

origins modern friction

AS NEEDED:

neosporin on any sensitive areas
pure simplicity neem facial mask (this burns a little, but you only leave it on for 5 minutes)
lemon/egg white mask & vinegar toner

you might say...wow, you sure do lots of exfoliation! and yes thats true. it seems that with the hormonal deal going on my skin is trying to repair itself too fast and in the process, since it is also so very oily, closing up all the oil and dead skin in my pores. so for me, natural products and constant exfoliation is the key. i also take b vitamins, pregesterone cream, kefir, efa's and drink lots of steam distilled water
