In brief: Start medications

For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful.
If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral accutane.

In brief: Pangea Organics

I recommend the discovery kit for oily/blemish skin for only $34 and free shipping until labor day.
The high antioxidant content found in these certified organic botanical products (not dangerous chemicals) supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture loss. http://bit.ly/17wwcjw.
