HI, for what its worth, I too, suffer with cystic acne and have been under the care of a derm for the past ten years...Ive tried every single over the counter remedy, and none of them work for cystic acne.

Im on the same antibiotic, and it does help...but sometimes I still get a breakout.

I will tell you that Proactiv is THE WORST thing for cystic acne for adult skin. A. you dont want to use benzoil peroxxide on adult skin, it will cause scarring and it will not work on cystic acne. You want to stick with salycylic acid products.... as for using Bare Minerals- anything with talc in it, is likely to aggravate an already aggravated condition. Mineral makeup is fabulous, if you dont have sensitive skin and if you arent prone to cysts- HOWEVER if you have sensitive skin like I do- it will break you out for sure.

Best makeup for cystic acne? Clinique Acne solutions- it has salicylic acid in it and helps clear up and prevent new breakouts...

Best cleanser for cystic skin? In my opinion - anything you can buy thats pharmaceutical grade- my derm has her own product line and when I dont use it, i run into OTC products I can recommend are either using something incredibly gentle like Cetaphil- nothing in it to aggravate your skin- OR use something like Neutragena cleaners- all of them have 1 or 2% salycylic acid...stay away from Benzoil Peroxide!

Good luck.....and see a dermatologist. I did have laser surgery, IPL- it was expensive but for 3 years managed to stay clear..unfortunately, it doesnt last forever, however Im going to have it done again in April.
