    So from what i have read bp is the best? Do you use this even when you have no spots to keep your face clean?

    Also what moisturiser should i use after?

    Thanks for everyones advice. I dont have that many spots just a few, but as they go new ones appear after so i just want to get rid of them so they dont keep appearing as soon as they go.

    Thanks

    If you are worried about blockin the pores, look out for a non-comedogenic moisturiser. Yes u can use BP 2.5% when the spots arent there, but only really if your skin is greasy

    Ive never used BP, but as i said, i found the Nicam Gel very good, for me it works much better then the Panoxyl and doesnt bleech everything!
    - You can get it free from a doctor, although for £15 its really not worth the hassle of geting a perscription and all that. (plus you only end up paying for in taxes later)

    just use a natural cleanser , u can get a seaweed cleanser from body shop, it doesnt contain any alcohols so if the skin is broken ie pussy and bleedin it odesnt hurt. Its very soothing and opens pores right up, a quick rinse and your done.

    these anti-acne products are a waste of time, they dont od a good job as they shoudl do, this is because if they did get rid of acne then people wouldnt need to buy more than one treatment which would mean they wouldnt make anyny money out of it which would mean they run out of money

    i would suggest keepin an eye out on qvc, they might be the chav channel but there are some specialist products that really do the trick on there , the tea tree based australian product sell like hot cakes cos they do the trick, (one called proactiv skin system u can buy it on ebay at a cheaper price)

    be careful about getting prescription antibiotics from your doctor over use of them will result in the bacteria become ressistant to them and makes them uneffective . Plus once you have finshed a course they can come back just as easily

    try chamging your diet too, that will help , less grease means less oily skin, drink lots of water and dont scratch or even touch your face ( it will spread it around) try not to use any makeup unless its specifically designed to cover up acne, superdrug foundation aint gonna do it good

    good luck!

    Theres this cream called Freederm which you get from chemists for under £10, and it brilliant, especially if you dont have many harsh spots.

    Clean and clear and st. ives scrub are only pore cleansers. Oxy actually tackles the spot to get rid of it.

    this won't actually get rid of the spots, just cleanse them as i just mentioned.

    I use 'double base' its great, its what my mum perscribes to people with dry skin (shes a GP).
    - You can get small 'trial tubes' or else a 500g pumptop despeser, which last ages (years)

    It works a treat, much better than aquaduse(sp) cream that i used to use before.

    I can't tell you what does work, but I can tell you what doesn't, and that's oxy.

    I'm just letting mine go away naturally though.

    Quinoderm seems to work really well for me

    it contains Benzoyl peroxide BP 10% which seems to do the trick
