Parenting after a Loss

What are your acne solutions?

Today, I woke up with yet another bright red pimple on my forehead.  I've had more acne as an adult than I ever did in high school.  I had it under control prepregnacy.  And I thought 4 months pp, my hormones would have regulated some.  But my acne washes and spot treatments don't seem to be working anymore. 

What has worked for you to keep acne away?  And what do you use once you get a pimple?

    My hormones are all over the place. My favorites are the neutrogena [sp?] pink grapefruit scrub and witch hazel. Both seem to help balance my skin.

  • I use bareMinerals blemish therapy. It has sulfur in it, so it smells pretty bad. It can shrink a zit like nobody's business! I am practically covering my face in it daily, my PP hormones are wreaking havoc on my appearance!

  • I use the Clean and Clear Advance (purple label) for on the spot treatments and it's usually gone in a day or two. My regular routine is Dove white bar soap, a simple astringent or toner, and oil free face lotion. I did notice that my skin has been much more sensitive to the astringent so I do recommend starting with something gentle like witch hazel.

    I use this for on the spot treatment too!  Other than that I just use mild soap and water and the days that I know I'm not leaving the house or just running a quick errand, I don't wear makeup to give my skin a break.

  • Acne.org has a great explanation of products to avoid as well as how to create a system like proactiv using OTC products. I had terrible pp acne and since using this regiment it's significantly better! HTH!

  • I use dermologica anti bacterial line. I love it. It's pricey but the Ph levels are low and so good for your skin. I also did the bare minerals and loved it. You might have to change your make up?
