Whatever works: It depends on your definition of "best". Some people can do w/ simple face (&body) scrubs & food trigger avoidance. Others require topical lotions & prescriptions. A third type (like me) was prescribed retinoic acid, but that kept me out of the sun for more than 2 yrs & I lost my spot on the varsity team (couldn't practice).
