    I'm 22 and I would of still had acne.
    No soap, water or any cream helped.
    Eventually I was given Rocaten- the ultimate anti-acne pill.
    Now I have the face of a normal 22 year old :) (acne wise anyways-Overall, I still don't look very nice :( )

    I use nothing special, but I am sure H&S runs down my face in the shower, followed by a tad conditioner, lots of hot water..

    I spelled it wrong: it's "roaccutane" or "roche".
    Anyways, it requires a doctor's perscription, and you must be at least 18/20 years old to use them, and they are only given to serious cases(or never ending cases such as myself- I am 22). The average teen won't be allowed to aquire them.
    Also summer is a bad time to get them, as they will dry you out.

    My mum always used to say that Tea Tree Oil cures all skin infections. I cannot say if that will work, but if you're desperate then I guess you will give anything a try :)

    I think you dilute it.

    Don't take Roccutane if you're pregnant either.

    I have a smidgeon of acne (I've posted my picture a few times, it should be noticeable) but if a slight scattering of a half-dozen red spots or so is enough to drive a girl off, then I doubt she's a very high-quality girl in the first place. So, I don't worry about it too much.

    I suggest using the Neutrogena one, it contains 2.5% BP, which is more mild than the 5% or 10% made by OXY.
    I agree washing your face with just water will not do anything to improve your acne situation, I heard having lots of sex will make it go away. :p

    Or is it just that the people who have a lot of sex tend not to have acne, as bad acne would be a detriment to sex?

    Realize that it doesn't really matter. But then again if it only takes 5 minutes to wash your face then what the hell you might as well wash it.

    I only get it on my forehead along a line where I wear my hat and on either side of my nose. All because of where I work at. A hot and stuff kitchen. oh and every now and then get some on my shoulders or something

    I'd sugest either gene therapy or aging.

    I find that Omega-3 and silica tablets are as effective as the antibiotics, only they don't cause high blood pressure.

    Omega 3 is just the latest fashion.
    Now every yoghurt ad emphasizes it has lots of Omega 3-6-9 that will help the blood stream, while two years ago, they couldn't emphasize Vitamine B enough.
    I've also been given advice to take in Omega 3 fish oil tablets that would presumably help against my Asperger syndrome, while for other it would help against depression.
    Now acne...

    This belief in Omega 3-6-9 is taking on magical proportions if you ask me.

    Omega-3 oils are lacking from out processed diet because omega-3's cause foods to spoil faster (and thus removed). Vitamin B is also good and necesary stuff.

    All these "fads" are simply pointing toward one thing: eat a balanced, healthy, natural diet.
