Fast & cheap: Not everybody needs something this strong, but for fast-and-cheap, tetracycline 500 2x/day clears most folks quite well and quite fast for almost nothing.

How do I prevent acne?

Some thoughts: Acne is genetic and more prone to occur during hormone changes. That is unavoidable. You should start using some essential skincare products and devices such as the clarisonic pro, face washes and toners with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and maybe some chemical peels to help unplug pores. Recommend diet high in healthy fats and proteins, organic, avoid all sugars except frui.

Acne: There is no easy way. One must live a healthy life style, a nutritious diet without much junk food, and avoid irritating the skin. If an acne problem develops, it is a good idea to see a dermatologist to give you a treatment plan to minimize the effect of the acne.

Need peeling?: You have postinflammatory change in color of the skin. Consider to have a mild or lite facial peeling. Ask your dermatologist how he feels about it and when its the best time after the treatment for acne.

Acne pimples: Stop eating nuts, peanut butter, chocolate, and cut down on dairy products. Over-the-counter bpo (benzoyl peroxide) products help. But in the long run, only a dermatologist can help by prescribing oral antibiotics and prescription topical (surface) medication for you.
