Journey Posted September 9, 2012 Share Posted September 9, 2012 my 18 year old daughter has acne. Not alot but for an 18 year old SHE thinks it's alot. We have literally tried everything almost. Proactive worked for a few minutes. The clearasil cleaning system worked for a few minutes, Clinique made her break out so badly i thought she had a rash on her face, the cheap walmart stuff worked for a while, cetaphil, she's used tea tree solution and now she's on the Aveda skin care regimine, which is 4 bottles of product at $30 a bottle. I cannot afford that and neither can she BUT....we would make it work if IT worked. She's been on it for about a month now and she still has acne. It's making the look of her skin or the quality of her skin more shiney and smooth but she still has pimples. She is so upset which i'm sure doesn't make it better but i don't blame her...she's in her senior year and 99% of the other girls at her school don't have acne. She does drink coke about 5 times a week (1 bottle a day) but she stopped doing that a few days ago. She takes the zinc pills but not consistently (i'm not sure why she doesn't take them everyday) but i don't know if the zinc will counter act what's in the Aveda. she uses physician's formula make up. She seems to be doing everything right but she still has acne. I told her i would make an appointment with the dermatologist but they'll probably want to put her on some sort of pill that will take months to start working (we've already been down that road) and the the last thing a senior in high school wants to hear about their skin is "it's going to get worse before it gets better". Any one have any suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
