I thought I would be done battling acne by now, but it's back.
Anyone have any recomendations?

I don't have any advice, but I do have sympathy.

I'm 26, and mine never went away. I've been using the "traditional" treatments with nasty chemicals just because it's so embarassing, especially since I look about 17 anyway, but I need to find something natural because I'm TTC and don't want to use benzoyle peroxide when I'm pregnant.

If your skin feels oily, there's a brand of masks called MUDD or something like that that is all natural mud. It doesn't clear acne, but it does dry your skin really well.

Could it be rosacea? My dh has rosacea, and it can manifest itself as acne. It also commonly begins in a person's 30's. Here's a website link if you're interested:

Okay, I think this stuff is full of harsh ingredients, so it depends on how desperate you are, but boy did it knock out my acne and make my sklin glow: Proactiv. You might have seen the infomercials. I don't use it anymore, but did for a few years and it really works. They probably have a website. It's a kit you order with cleanser, toner, and lotion.

Caution: It will bleach your clothes and face towels (scary I know), so wear/use old ones!

I, too, have suffered from adult break outs. I wouldn't say it was acne, at least not so far as my whole face being affected. But I have been using proactive for about 3 years and absolutley would never want to go without it. I use it every morning and my skin has never looked better.

You can go to proactive.com. They have it set up so you can have it automatically delivered to your home. They recommend using it twice a day, but I find that every morning is enough for me. So I have it delivered every other month.

Good luck.
