I never suffered with spots throughout my teens but as soon as I hit 20 (I'm now 22) my t-zone has never been clear. I have used all the products money can buy but this just makes it worse, erupting massive painful spots around my chin. I guess they are too strong. I have recently read about Clinique Anti Blemish 3 step. Does anyone know if this works? i don't want to spend more money on something that doesn't work and I don't want a face like a pizza for a wedding i have later this month! Thanks.

Have you been to your GP? You may need something that is only available on prescription. Clinique made my skin worse. I have had to resort to hormonal treatment of my skin in the form of Dianette which is very effective but not without risk and really only suitable for short term. Quinoderm cream is good but quite strong and I always find that using a sunbed helps if Im really desperate.
I too have had fairly problematic skin for most of my adult life! Last Autumn I suffered with Dermatitis on my face (really red and sore). I stopped using all products on my face and just washed with water and used a cream suitable for Ezcema. Hey presto - the dermatitis cleared up and so did the spots! I recently read that you only need to cleanse once a day and wash your face with water for the other. I think if you do too much to your face, you strip it of the natural oils etc and it just sends it hay wire. At the moment I am only using a Neutrogena scrub every other day and E45 as a moisturiser and my skin is better than it's been for a long time. Less, is definitely more!
