How to get rid of acne?
An_249648 posted:
How do I get rid of the acne? I'm 16 and have had acne for three years now and I get acne on my forehead, the sides of my face, chest, back, and shoulders. When I first started getting acne I never habitually washed my face and took care of my skin, and thought if I just waited and left the pimples alone they would go away, but they continued to become more and more. My forehead and the sides of my face used to be covered in lots of whiteheads, but since I started using Proactiv the pimples became more enflamed and more like cystic acne, and now whenever I apply moisturizer after I wash my face and apply toner my skin burns terribly. I just want to get rid of my acne, but I don't know what to try next and don't have money to waste on methods that won't work. Help?
