I always had perfect skin other than little blackheads on my chin, which I think most people have. But suddenly, my forehead started breaking out like a lot. It's really stressed me out, I know how u feel. So I'm going to just list everything I've tried.
-stridex (little pads that you rub on your face with salicylic acid, I recommend the maximum one)
-Aloe Vera gel (it helped a little for drying out pimples)
-tea tree oil (never tried it but I heard it works)
-baking soda mask, mix baking soda with water to form a thick paste and apply to your face or just the acne if you want. Leave it on for atleast 5 minutes, for some people it burns but for me it didn't so I left it on for about 30. It's also very exfoliating. Warning: please, DON'T leave it on if it hurts. It's also drying so make sure you moisturize but don't use anything really oily. Plus, when the mask is drying small clumps of dried baking soda fall off, just don't wear nice clothes or you can just use a towel to catch it. And don't use it too often.
Dermatologist: they will prescribe creams or something to help the acne and try to find out the cause and fix it.
Proactiv- I didnt try it but according to the commercial it's very helpful.
Good luck I hope this helped :)
