Sorry if I spelled something wrong or left something out!! Do READ this whole entry!!!
Do stick to a routine!!! I hope this works for you!!
If you have a parent with clear skin and a parent with moderate to severe acne, chances are you will have SEVERE ACNE!
My Mom has beautiful skin my dad have a few spots, and I have BAD SKIN!
Every pore is a blackhead on my face!

There is nothing you can do to get rid of acne forever. Those who say that a natural remedy cleared their face, may only have moderate acne. Or the cause is in their heath, diet, or other problems.
My acne is GENETIC. Not even Proactiv, over the counter, or prescription medicines will help. Your hair on your skin is suppose to help dirt and oil slide down the hair strand through sweating. (Hope thats easy to understand)The hair on your face is the same. Each hair has a follicle, on the face the follicle is a pore. Your sweat canal carries the oil to the correct gland to prepare to secrete the oil through the hairs in through your pores. You get bumps when the oil rupture in the canal that carries it. It turns red and get big because your skin's natural defense kicks in to fight the oil rupture. Puss is a result of a rupture. Blackheads are the result of a blocked canal that got to the service but didnt secrete properly. The black tip is from the oil mixing with the oxygen on the surface and it hardens.
Your skin may does not secrete oil properly.
Do ALL of the over the counter medicines detroy your face upon contact? Do you see more bumps when you sweat or where a hat, or hair in your face? Yeap you may have my problem. Do you have a few clear days then all of a sudden volcanoes appear no matter what you use?
That's because oil is not finding a way to escape through daily sweating and etc.
SOME acne is cause by a hormone(I forget the name)and or your skins inability to secrete oil. You have to approach this logically. You either give yourself artificial hormones-birth control pills, etc. or you find a way to stop your body from secreting so much oil! This is why some people say that DIET can help. (Im too grown and skinny for a DIET!)
When your liver and spleen can not convert toxins fast enough, they send the toxins to the largest defense organ of the body. The SKIN. When you sweat all these toxins have to come out,water help break all toxins down! The more water you drink the clearer your urine, the same goes for your skin.
Well here is a way to see fewer bumps over two weeks.

Do use: The cleanser,scrub, astringent, and moisterizer is a vital routine for a clearer face. I do not use any medications other than proactive-it doesnt work, but I bought it and it doesnt cause more damage.
DO NOT MIX SALYLIC ACID AND BENZOYL PEROXIDE!!!!!!!!!
-IF you use a medication dont mix with other medications-only mix with natural remedies(burdock root, tea tree oil, pure vitamin E, orange peel, cucumber,sntioxidants,etc.)
-Do steam your face, the steam will cause your face to sweat, secreting the oil natural through the pores,THEN
-Do use your cleaner/scrub. Make your cleaner a scrub by adding ground Nut Meg(This will take off that dirty layer that is is holding the oil in, your blemishes may lighten,I sometimes add milk or honey for a scrub that leave your skin soft and smooth afterwards, if you want leave it on for 20min)
- After you clean/scrub use your medicated astringent or natural ways to remove oil from your skin. Lemon juice, witch hazel, tea tree oil etc. (Removing oil will make your face over secrete oil, I normally let my antibacteria soap or honey and nut meg scrub stay on my face while Im sitting around the house. My face is used to it now and it doesnt secrete as MUCH oil, its getting tamed a little!Plus I have oily skin.
- I put tea tree oil on my open bumps that I may bust or if they bust when I use my scrub. I do squeeze my bumps. Im guilty! But if you dry out the bump first with toothpaste it decreases the puss and the bump surface area, then I lightly squeeze the puss out. Try to minimize the size of the hole you make, and then work on cleaning the bacteria from the area with tea tree oil. Make sure if you squeeze a bump get ALL of the puss out. You should see water or red blood, not hte yellowish blood. Then hel the scar and dont peal the scar, let the scrub work on the scar. Some people never pick at their face, but if you do, clean your hands and clean the area you pick at, and dont squeeze it hard and make a big splash. You are creating a bigger hole than you have to. Just barely pinch it. Or dont pick at all! Dry it out and let the puss fade back into the skin. It will still make a dark mark. Thats why I save the time and bring it to a head and pop it.

I cut and pasted this from some where else. It is pretty logical. (I added some explanation from my point of view.)

1. Drink a WATER before, during and after each meal. Remove those toxins from the inside!

2. DO NOT drink any carbonated drink or coke.
This is the one of the biggest causes of Acne

3. DO NOT eat alot of Trans Fatty Acid foods Pizza, Fast Food etc.

4. Change your pillow case every other day.( I am sooo lazy, but I add my pillow case whenever I washed anything, and I now the sides of my face dont break out any more)
Dirt can easily get into your pillow so change it every other day.

5. Try not to touch your face a lot.
When you touch your face you can sometimes spread dirt to your face.(True)

6. Wash you face.(Over washing can cause the skin to secrete more oil to replace the oil that is drawn out, I normally lather dial antibacteria soap on my face and keep it on while Im in the house)
Wash you face in the morning with soap and then your Acne pads, cleanser etc. Then wash your face at night but DO NOT use the Acne cleanser.

7. Kept your hair Clean.
When you have dirty hair you will get a lot of acne around the ears and forehead.(true, I just never wear bangs, bumps will come!)

8. Try not to look at your face.
When you look at your face it couldn't have gotten worse and then you would feel down because you've worked so hard at trying to get it acne free.( true, I guess, but Im constanly in the mirror)

9. Use a clean towel to wash your face and pad it dry don't rub.( I never use a rag, I clean my hands/nails with anti bacteria soap)

10. Set Goals
This is the best one. Set a goal say like you'll see improvement in 2 weeks and stick to that. Make sure you follow the steps-(Stick to YOUR routine)

11. Don't Stress over your Acne
It’s proven that if you stress is a leading cause of Acne. So just set back and give yourself some time.

12. Get Vitamin E oil and run it on your face. It heals the face and all your scars.(True, but slowly!!Use that Nut Meg scrub!!)

Oh and if your looking for a Acne Cleanser I would recommnd Oxy Pads or Clearsal.-(NEVER!!! These things break me out- I use Dial antibac soap/nut meg and honey for cleanser/srcub, I alternate between lemon juice, egg white, tea tree oil, slice of patato or witch hazel for astringents, and to add moisture a lite layer of vitamin E oil(the kind I bought is thick)or rub a slice of cucumber,or a THIN layer of your daily moisturizer.

If you just stick to these steps and make goals it may help you. But do realize that it will never go away. I it may calm down, but if you break your routine it may come back. Don't put alot of different acids or chemiicals on your face. Go with using a slice of potato, lemon, cucumber. They have natural acids!

Hey you gave some great tips for all that but I will say that if you really do use dial antibac for your face you better stop now! the skin on your face is different from the rest of your body and you're just going to make it worse if you use that stuff on your face and especially if you leave it on and don't wash it off immediately. you need to use a cleanser meant for your face!

In my opinion the cause of all disease and illness including acne is what is going in your body and what ISN'T coming out. In all aspects of life. Physically, and emotionally. If you eat poison and garbage (which is in most conventional foods), If you drink poison and garbage (which is in tap water, non organic juice, soda pop etc.) If you breathe poison and garbage (in the air, in our soaps, perfumes, steams from the shower etc.) If you put poison on your skin (mosquito repellent, perfume, lotions, ointments) If you take drugs of ANY KIND!! Over the counter or prescription drugs, If you have negative thoughts or speak negatively. If you are around too much electro magnetic cheos, YOU WILL BE ILL OR DISEASED. Even if you may not know it. Read 'Natural Cures They don't want you to know about' By Kevin Trudeau. Your answeres are there.

Thanks for your genetic description of acne. It helped me to see that I'm not the only one with relentless acne regardless of how well I eat or how I wash my face. Although my skin quality is best when I stick to my facial routine, I still have breakouts. I think mine is due to a hormonal imbalance, because I had ZERO acne when I was on birth control (note: I had sub-par eating habits then as a college student), and then the acne returned with a vengence when I decided to stop taking the pill. I find that the best remedy for me is to keep my whole body in balance as much as possible (eating, exercise, hygiene, etc.) and to use natural based products for my skin as often as possible. Although not a 'home' remedy, I recommend using Burts Bees facial products (the carrot based lotions and the blemish stick with tea tree oil), for they contain natural substances.

That was so long I skipped half of it :P.
What I did read were quite alright tips though ^_^

I was wondering how long you used proactive. I found that the longer you use it-the better it works for your skin. It didn't work for me at first; if anything it may have made my acne worse. But once your skin gets used to the routine-it starts to work really well. Plus, the sulfur mask treatment works miracles for breakouts...the only side effect is your face smelling like eggs. YUCK!!!!

After a half of century, I've learn that my acne is triggered by eating chocolate. The morning after results of endulging to a single morsel.... If you have acne and eat any type of chocolate, do yourself a favor and stop eating it for a month. I'd venture to say that you'll notice the difference in a week. That, and drink lots of water--no sodas or pop--depending on where you live! Wash your face too, but be gentle. I do a three step process with two makeup removers and a mild facial soap (a rice blend from Bath & Body Works). Throw the scrub brush away! A light rubbing with your hands will get the job done. Every night before you go to bed! And no cheating!!

weirdly to say that i found if you have ance on your back or your chest, put palmers coco butter fomrula 'tummy butter' for stretch marks...you will find a huge amount gone over night!!!

yea dial soap is horrible for your face...which could be also why you break out still. the best soap to use (and is recommended by 9 out of 10 dermotoligists) is Cetaphil Soap/cleanser. its better to use on the whole body like in the shower and on face morning and night. Its more expensive than the average soap so (cleanser $10) i would prefer to just use it on your face and then the cheap mild soap on the body (NO fragrance and it needs to be non-comedagenic). And what i love about it is that when you first use it, it wont make the acne get worse and then better. I hate that most medications and over the counter medicines do that.
