Since I have really dry skin i don't usually break out. But, when i do i usually get rid of it as fast I can !
A good trick is if you have really oily skin, you can go to sephora and buy those sheets of paper that absorbs oil and apply cream for oily skin everyday twice a day. ( Morning and Night )
If you was your face everyday and make sure that you control the oiliness of your skin daily you should have no problems control your acne as well.
If you do still have problems with your acne, you could look further into buying acne resolving creams such as PROACTIVE. My friend uses it and all her blemishes are gone and her pimples don't come back. Her face is now really clear and she has really great skin. Although it is an investment, it really works.
If you are not too sure of T.V products, i would say that proactive really works and i suggest that people should get it if they really need it. Don't waste your time at your doctors just for them to prescribe you creams that are worth more then you bargend for !
