Hey strawberryangelcake10000000000, it could be that you aren't using the right moisturizer. Try Burt's Bees acne cleanser. That helps me and it's only about ten bucks. Be sure you are washing your face day and night. Drinking water helps too. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Dear Rarataytay, im only 11, so my mom really isn't into me using much makeup, but my aunt got me a makeup kit that isnt like the makeup you find in Walmart, etc, and my mom is OK with it.... the brand is abbreviated MM, but i cant remember the name.....oops
by ostar21 on 4/7/2012 9:22:09 AM
if you have bad acne, i SOOO recomend using Nuetrogena's Deep Clean Cream Cleanser..... things like proactiv do work, but its a lot more expensive and is very harsh to your skin.... I def. wouldn't recomend AcneFree, it takes like 2.5 MONTHS to work.

i've have acne for about 2 years , and i've been using proactiv for a little over a year. And all the really bad red pimples are gone and so are most of the marks left behind. But i still keep getting acne no matter how much i don't touch my face or how much i drink water instead of soda. i'm sick and tired of it, please help!!
We all have our never-ending problems with acne. Your best bet is to ask your parents about going to a dermatologist. They can make decisions on what products to give you based on your specific skin situations. Jordan S.

during puberty my skin was doing just fine, then all the sudden i just broke out! is this a stage, does it mean something, and how do i stop it! p.s i clean my face every day.
by taytaydance13 on 2/23/2012 1:36:08 AM
MUST READ TIP!: If u have dry or rough skin, use St. Ives black head and blemish control. Its a exfoliating wash that leaves ur skin unbelivebly smooth. So, I tried it about a week ago and use it every time I take a shower (every to every other day.) Unlike most acne products, it doesnt dry out ur skin. Instead, in just one use, it left my skin literally silky smooth and reduced pimple size and redness. Please try it, u wont regret it!!!

My parents won't let me wear dark makeup, or anything, because they say that i look to old with it on, but almost all the other girls in my grade wear it, any makeup brands that my mom might be willing to try out?

Hey sugerdog40, try using an acne solution on your legs. Burt's Bees, Neutrogena, Clearasil are really good products. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Okay so I have really pretty legs, and okay skin so i was really upset when suddenly these THINGS popped up. There like whiteheads but on my legs. They r red for a base then have this white puss coming out. If i scratch at them enough, the white things come out. But loition dosnts do anything, just keeps them away for a few minutes. What do I do? What are they? Lynae P.

Hey 426love, mhmm I don't know what that could be. I think you should call your doctor and scheldue an appointment. It's probably nothing serious, but a professional will be able to tell you what it is. Hope you feel better! Xoxo

Again... The picture at the top of the article is inappropriate... Can you guys PLEASE use photos that do not show seven to twelve year old's doing things that they shouldn't even worry about? You guys are just adding to the media fire of little girls acting like they're twenty.

I'm so glad that you guys finally mention
"You’ll also want to follow each face wash with a moisturizer. It’s a common myth that people with oily or breakout-prone skin shouldn’t use moisturizer because it will make your skin greasy, but the opposite is actually true! If you don’t use moisturizer, your skin feels dry and starts producing more oils than it needs to, which causes pimples"
I think it's really important for teenage girls to know this, because it's so true and no one believes it!
You go Girlslife!

if u have acne you should stick to 1 routine becasue your face luvs routines and it will take your skin about 6 weeks to get used to new products u use, and pimplse/zits have a life span of 6 week (that means inside you skin 2) u should just take vitamins, drink 8 glasses of water aday, use a morning cleanser, a mosturizer, a facial scrub w? benzoyl or salisylic acid, and use a spot treatment at mingh. got it!!!!! it work 4 me
