I've done it before, I'll do it again and this time I'll stay there.

-Wash your face as much as you can, be crazy about it (don't be rough with your skin) just using water and a face towel
-don't touch your face with your hands
-clay masks from the drug store once a week to reduce oil
-witch hazel toner to reduce oil
-oil free moisturiser to provide good oils so your skin stops producing bad oils

Proactive works for me...I know some people it doesn't do so well, but you may want to give that a try..Neutrogena rapid clear lotion is also good, I use proactive in the day and the rapid clear at night before bed.....Also, don't stress out! lol. Easier said than done, but that's what causes my break outs alot of the time.  Mine gets worse with heavier calorie restriction as well alot of the time.  Vitamins help some, but not alot.:/...I've had acne problems for almost 20 years!  Started when I was 18.You would think at 37 I wouldn't have to deal with it anymore..:/  Proactive is the best stuff I have tried over all though...

The clairisonic is the best thing in the world.

I use Oxy Clinical and clearasil 12 hour action at different times of the day.

I wash with cetaphil (wal-mart) and moisturize twice a day.  I use my clarisonic with my cetaphil every other day.  I adjust moisturizers with the seasons so I don't get shiny.

Every Sunday I do a 25% lactic acid peel (doesn't actually peel at that level) that I bought from Ebay for like $10 and every Wednesday I do a raw honey mask.

Haven't broken out at all since I started this.  I break out when I use oxy and Clearasil 12 hour didn't do anything much.
