My face keeps breaking out =(

I am so frustrated everyone. I have had acne from 13 years of age to 18.. and finally the past year, my acne cleared up due to my lifestyle changes and my acne regimen. But lately, the whole right side of my face has been breaking out. and it's so frustrating.. I finally get rid of it and it comes back with a vengeance.
It makes me feel so uncomfortable and I can't have fun with pimples on my face, because I'm so self conscious about it. The worst part is the red marks that are left behind, its just so unattractive. But strangely, I don't have acne anywhere but my right cheek. I don't get that.

Does anyone know any remedies to heal the red marks quickly? I get so OCD when this happens. Thanks everyone love to you all

Is the side of your face that you're getting breakouts on the same side you sleep on?

http://www.proactiv.com/

BTW - I'm 22 years old and never had acne in my whole life so, I can't really help you with that one

Try the link I gave you cos I saw it on a magazine about the product not long ago

Try proactiv. It's awesome.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Proactiv was good for me, but it was basically just teaching me to wash my face more regularly. I switched over to noxema and with the same regimen, it worked about as well and at a much smaller cost.

Re: My face keeps breaking out =(

sounds wierd... but try it - put a small amount of eyedrops on cotton wool and apply to red "spots"..... sounds odd i know but it works. ProActiv is great.... Teatree products are also quite good.

How is your diet? drink LOTS of water and dont sleep on your side!

I also had a terrible case of acne as a kid. Once I gave up eating sugar my face cleared up.

I think washing your face with toothpaste works, or for most people it does.

Re: My face keeps breaking out =(

My dermatologist always says to not ever touch your face (except for washing of course).

Some things to try/incorporate:

Wash with regular soap and water about 3x per day - nothing harsh or special needed - just keeping your skin clean. Use a washcloth for a small amount of exfoliation. Don't overwash/scrub or you will dry your skin and cause other issues.

Look for something at the drugstore that works overnight. Put that on every night and wash off in the morning. Do not get anything too harsh.

I think something is happening at night based on your "right side only" description, so this is a good idea to try.

Recognize sources of stress and find ways to eliminate them.

Buy a tanning pass, but only go once every two weeks (and don't overdo each visit, it even at that interval).

Diet doesn't affect acne.
