I have skin problem:i have acne, sensitive, sometimes dry mostly oily skin.tried few med. but didnt work. help

Do you guys have any advice? I tried some medicines from Doctors but it didn't really work.I tried Proactive but it also didn't really work,my face was getting red and a little bit itchy (the face didn't get better at all) also i've tried Clearasil, the same result but worst. i can't stop scratching. I've tried Dr. Secret before it was working but not for long. It seems like i can't use the same medicine for too long. do any of you have the same experience or any advice or anything? Thanks

see a licensed dermotologist, a good one should be able

to help clear you up. You have combination skin, so what works for oily doesn't help dry and vice vesa. your meds.

are complicating your problem
Reply:simple, get some dial antibacterial liquid soap, foam face up good, rinse with hot and then cold water, apply aloe

vera gel on face afterwards, problem solved!
Reply:Me too. Senstive, acne prone skin. It sucks. I find that the Arbonne (it's like Avon) 3 step system is really good...but pricey. I also use St. Ive's apricot scrub and Ivory bar soap. Works like magic. Good luck!
Reply:trust me on this one i can seriously help you. well first of all you need to go to a dermatologist i know you have been to some before but you need to go to one that perscribes accutane it is the most powerful drug you can get for acne, but only some dermatologist can perscribe it to you because it is so powerful. there are some serious side effects but if you want to clear up your acne and never see it again trust me this works. i promise it will never come back even after years. it is a last resort tough so if you do take my advice they may at first try you on a topical treatment and then if that dont work they will perscribe you accutane. i wish you the best
Reply:It sounds like you've been using way too harsh stuff for sensitive skin. Clearasilis diabolical stuff.

Try something much more gentle %26amp; without alcohol in it. I have tried so many products over the years both prescribed and bought over the counter but my skin is too sensitive to chemicals.

I tried this stuff recently, it's for rosacea %26amp; hyper sensitive skin conditions %26amp; I'm gettingon really well with it.

Whatever you do, don't wash your face too often and if I was you I'd avoid soaps.
Reply:Go to and follow Dan Kern's regimen. It really works! I use the Cetaphil wash, the Neutragena On The Spot 2.5% benzoyl peroxide medication (10% is in most acne medication, this can actually make your acne worse!), and the Complex 15 lotion. You can prbly find this stuff at your local drugstore. Seriously, I started doing this regimen twice a day and my skin is really clearing. What can it hurt to try? Good luck.
Reply:To get rid of acne. Try a gentle cleanser. One that is glycerin or sorbitol based will be good and it does not need to be expensive. Cetaphil and Neutrogena has some pretty good ones. Try Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser.

Proactiv works for some people it clears up for a while but acne may come back. It is also very harsh on your skin and may dry it all up, definitely not for people with sensitive skin. My friend said it corroded and bleached her metal sink so if it can do that to the sink, think of what it is doing to your face. So Proactiv is a no no.

Wash your face at least twice a day and everytime after you perspire. If your skin is the oily kind, you do not need to apply any moisturizer, your skin oils are enough to keep it hydrated. If you really must apply a gentle light oil free one. Cetaphil® Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 or Cetaphil® Moisturizing Lotion is quite good

Apply pimple cream to the acne area. Try benzoyl peroxide low strength(2.5%) first. Don't pick poke scrub or pop your pimples unless you want scars which are really ugly. Scrubbing cleansers or washes are also no-nos because it equals picking and poking and makes acne worse Treated pimples gently.

Eat healthy. Make sure you drink plenty of water. Cut down on sugar and carb intake. Foods like chocolates, coffee, soda drinks, bread, rice potatoes or anything starchy and sugary are no-nos. Cut down on oily and fried foods also. Go for grilled, steamed or baked food. Make sure you eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Ensure that your diet is rich in vitamin A, C, E and Omega-3 which are important for the skin. Less stress and sleeping enough is also important. Not having enough sleep is like putting stress on your body. Makes sure you sleep at least 8 hours a day.

If you are a smoker. Try to quit. Smoking causes a lot of damage to your skin because it introduces toxins to it. These toxins can clog the pores or make the skin harder to breathe and that’s when the acne bacteria set in. The toxins also cause longer healing of the acne as well as the marks and scars left behind by acne.
Reply:If your skin is a dry, and you are bothered by it, I suggest you try using Zenmed Sensitive Skin Care

System from Zenmed or Autopalm from

Zenmend has no side effects and it's non-irritant to the

skin. It's proven to works fast and it povides Maximum

results! It's certainly a good lotion to prevent further


Another product that I think is effective is Autopalm. This

dry skin mlm is one of the best seller at now.

( holds more than 10,000 skin care products) It's pretty effective, and worth the dollar paid
