my sister used to have acne pretty bad. She had to go to a dermatolgist. She was given acutane. Everytime she went to the derma's office she put hot steaming wash cloths on her face. Maybe you could put warm cloths on your face, it may work for you. Sorry i never had acne, just a zit every now and then

Ah, a subject dear to my heart - skincare.

Im pretty much obsessed with having nice skin.. lol. I do a lot of reading up on it, especially holistic/natural care because I hate putting a load of chemicals all over my face. (same goes for hair and body, but that's a different thread all together). I think I may one day become an aesthetician or dermatologist because I've been into skin care since i can remember..

anyways! to answer your question I would recommend a couple different brands that i LOVE and know they work from personal experience...



Dr Hauschka


Shop by skin concern (oily)
http://www.drhauschka.com/holistic-p...cern/oily.aspx

7 facts that will change your skin: (they really did.. very good info. #2 really blew me away when i first read it but it makes sense!)
http://www.drhauschka.com/about/7-facts/#


also Suki is another great brand that really works wonders.

I checked the store locator and you can find it in the UK.. I don't know if youve heard of it before or not?
http://sukisnaturals.com/contact_stores.php

And I would suggest the little trial kit if you aren't able to find a store with testers.. http://sukisnaturals.com/product.php?product_id=24

Here are the products in this line for your skin type: http://sukisnaturals.com/skin_conditions.php



Hope some of this helps! I have more info for you but I'll post tomorrow because its nearly 3am and i need to go to bed! Good luck, and I hope you find something that works for you! Skin can be so frustrating sometimes, i know.

I've really had good luck with the over the counter Olay Total Effects line. It has a cleanser with blemish control that can be used daily or even up to 3 times daily and the Rejuvenist line has a very light moisturizer that seems to keep my skin from going crazy making oils.

i used to have bad Acne, but i just washed my face with Clearasil every morning and evening, i also used and still use Garnier Pure A Moisturizer.
its great and non greasy, it also makes a great base for makeup
My brother had spots and used Sudocream which worked fab too!
Good luck

Chibaby~ I wish I had some advice, but I am in the same boat. I am 27 and instead of black heads I have full blown white heads, the really nasty kind, sorry TMI. I have tried everything short of a dermatologist and that's only because I can't afford to go to one. I have always had bad acne since I was like 12. I've learned to deal, because washing with every cleanser in any store around here has never helped. Right now, I am usuing one from Biore with still no improvement. So, I'll be looking at all your suggestions too.
