Nothing ever really works for acne :(

Just eat healthy, drink plenty of water and exercise well. It's not the end of the world. And be confident!

Also try to keep your hands off of your face.

Accutane,

Too bad it requires a prescription +blood tests +government paperwork, but it worked for me...

We need nanobots that go into the pimple, remove all the junk, clean it out and treat it.

Think about it. Everyday you rub some nano-bot paste on your face and they go to work cleaning your pores and exfoliating your skin. Sounds good to me.

I'm actually going to see my doctor this week for that stuff. At 31 almost 32, I'm sick and tired of acne.

Here's what works for me.

1. Keep the caffeine/soda to a minimum
2. No milk.
3. Time release face wash (or something like that, not sure if it is really time release)
4. anti-dandruff shampoo.(keeps it out of your hairline)

he's right

i never had acne in a bad form, but i used to have a pimple or two once in a while. my sister had some proactiv and i used it for a bit and my skin got pretty clear. i use neutrogena products for my face now daily, and it seems to be cleaning my face pretty good

That looks like a Zeno rip off. Zeno is the original and works decently. Wasn't really worth the $150 though.

For a while, this combo worked great for my skin! However, after a while my body got used to it and decided to act up again. Now I'm just using Neutrogena face wash, OTC benzoyl peroxide during the day, and Differen before bed. Works, but not as well as I would like.

I heard that all these use are heat.

I really only have acme on the right side of my mouth...nothing gets rid of it.

wash + moisturize
seems counterintuitive but its better your skin doesn't try to compensate for dryness.

there's no cure/instant removal of acne. takes time & dedication and constant treatment. this product im sure will lessen the redness of an existing acne pimple... doesn't mean you won't get another one the next day

I use a 10% peroxide face wash (Panoxyl, or sold as Oxy in a black tube at your local target) with a 2% salaytic acid topical treatment.

Nothing else works for me, but this combination does.

I would be morally against nano-bot paste.

I took Accutane when I was about 16 before they figured out it could cause some more serious side effects like depression... and yeah as a moody 16 year old already this was an amazing time for me.

Shit worked great... just made me impossible to be around for like 18 months.

I think the depression side effect is slightly BS. Like you said, you were already moody. I'm sure you just got more pissed off about the dry lips and face. Chemically though, I don't think it causes depression.

Looks very nice, price is really steep but I'm now past the prime time acne part of my life and still have it. I've been to dermatologists I've tried that proactiv stuff, none of it's worked for me so I'm wondering how well this would help. The reviews on Zeno look good enough for me to consider a purchase.
