Having said that, my middle aged, oily skin which is sometimes prone to acne finds oil cleansing helpful and blancing (once you find the right mixture (The Oil Cleansing Method - A simple, cleansing facial massage for clear skin!)) and african black soap (African Black Soap) have been very helpful to balance skin and clean out the pores (thus preventing blackheads) and my teenage nephew has benefitted greatly as well).

Sweetie, can you see a dermatologist? I'm all for natural measures but sometimes you need medical help.

S/he might prescribe a simple lotion or cream or even some sort of cleanser or tonic that would clear you up before it gets really bad.

The only other suggestion I can think of is to try to get enough sleep. Skin rejuvenates 3 times faster while you are asleep than when you are awake.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

my skin finally cleared up after using cethaphil face wash and lotions. I'm allergic to most make ups and salacylic acid that's in most face washes. its just too harsh. I think the cerave is just as gentle and cheaper, i just have brand loyalty at this point.

Also, try washing your pillow case every few days. Your conditioner and styling products can rub off on it and then get all over your face as you sleep and not let your skin breath, depending on the products you use.

started CG on 6/25/12.
  • 2c with a strait underneath
  • normal elasticity on top, none on the underneath
  • Fine side of Normal
  • Thick hair
  • Poriosity is a mystery. I think its all over the place.
I've started using Boot's witch hazel and tea tree products and i've notice a huge reduction in my spots and oil it's really good and works within a week of using it!!

At teenage the skin is very sensitive and soft so using mild facial products and treatment can do wonders. I myself never retorted to chemical products at that age.
