I had acne for 12 years and its horrible. I tried everything from seeing a doctor, to OTC treatments, even Proactive. What worked best for me was actually Mary Kay timewise face wash and moisturizer. They have a line for teens too. Its not that expensive, and there are Mary Kay reps all over. (just go to and enter your website and it will link you to her website)

She has been acne free for two months. It took about three weeks to clear up."

to drink, add to water and honey, or to apple juice.

There are many products sold for the treatment of acne, many of them without any scientifically-proven effects. However, a combination of treatments can greatly reduce the amount and severity of acne in many cases. Those treatments that are most effective tend to have greater potential for side effects and need a greater degree of monitoring, so a step-wise approach is often taken. It is highly advisable to ask your doctor about the tradeoffs between these treatments for any individual case, especially when considering using any of them in combination. There are a number of treatments that have been proven effective:

Cotton pads soaked in salicylic acid solution can be used to exfoliate the skin[edit]
Exfoliating the skin

This can be done either mechanically, using an abrasive cloth or a liquid scrub, or chemically. Common chemical exfoliating agents include salicylic acid and glycolic acid, which encourage the peeling of the top layer of skin to prevent a build-up of dead skin cells which combine with skin oil to block pores. It also helps to unblock already clogged pores. Note that the word "peeling" is not meant in the visible sense of shedding, but rather as the destruction of the top layer of skin cells at the microscopic level. Depending on the type of exfoliation used, some visible flaking is possible. Moisturizers and anti-acne topicals containing chemical exfoliating agents are commonly available over-the-counter.

Bottom line, hang in there, you will get past this! Sincere best wishes and good luck.
