DermalMD’s Acne Serum worked well. however u may need to continue using until scars fade so i had to use like 3 jars. one jar has a small amount and i think it was too costly. however Serum had no allergies on my skin and overall it was ok.

To avoid further clogging of your pores, all cosmetics, lotions, and sunscreens should be oil-free! To avoid dry skin, use an oil-free lotion such as 15. To avoid sunburn use oil-free products such as Neutrogena or Coppertone Oil-free Sunscreen. And remember to beware of hair products and gels, as they tend to be very oily.
Cosmetics: Some cosmetics and skin-care products are pore clogging (“comedogenic”). Of the many available brands of skin-care products, it is important to read the list of ingredients and choose those which have water listed first or second if one is concerned about acne. These “water-based” products are usually best for those with acne.
Do not try the orange peel face mask! I was looking up easy DIY acne spot treatments and came across this one and didn’t think much of it as I had used lemon juice on pimples before and my skin had been fine. However I just tried this mask, I even added a little honey to make sure the mask wouldn’t be too strong, and it burned my skin! I noticed it was burning more than treatments usually do but didn’t think much of it. After about ten minutes it became too much to bare so I rinsed with warm water and was surprised to see large bright red patches all over my cheeks. Thankfully they only appeared in the areas I applied the mask to, which was only a few. But still my face is burning and tomato red. Lotion seemed to calm the areas but the color is persisting half an hour after the fact. Please for your sake do not use this mask, at least if you have never used an orange peel mask before. At the very least a disclaimer should be put on this recipe!!

I’ve had persistent acne ever since I was 13 years old. I’m almost 23 and I can say that I’m finally clear. I tried everything under the sun except for accutane because I was too concerned of the side effects. It took me about 2 weeks to see results from starting The Regimen. It was amazing to see my progress over the year. I kept a blog on acne.org (my user name is CeruleanCity) to share my experience. Thank you Dan & acne.org crew for curing my acne. The products offered are straight forward, simple, affordable and best of all – it works.
Oral antibiotics are recommended for no longer than three months as antibiotic courses exceeding this duration are associated with the development of antibiotic resistance and show no clear benefit over shorter courses. Furthermore, if long-term oral antibiotics beyond three months are thought to be necessary, it is recommended that benzoyl peroxide and/or a retinoid be used at the same time to limit the risk of P. acnes developing antibiotic resistance. Dapsone is not a first-line topical antibiotic due to higher cost and lack of clear superiority over other antibiotics. Topical dapsone is not recommended for use with benzoyl peroxide due to yellow-orange skin discoloration with this combination.
This results in more oil on the skin and insider pores, which can make it easier for acne to form. Stress can also cause people to unconsciously pick at the skin, which can worsen acne and cause scarring.
