    I know what u mean - home remedies are useless. Don't put loads of 'acids' on your face like peels or even face masks because they irritate my sking it made it worst for a time. Like, seriously bad. Instead just keep it simple, I cut everything out, and instead only used tea tree pads, this disgusting soap but absorbs all your oils (magic) and went to my GP who gave me Differin. That was a lifesaver

    I think going to the GP can solve your problems quicker as they have special types of lotions for this issue.

    Im not sure about home remedies but you can always google them?

    The pill has definitely gotten rid of all if not most of my acne.

    You can try exfoliants like sugar scrub and teatree or any other thing you can find on google. I found a teatree product from body shop quite effective along with a home-made sugar scrub (sugar, agave syrup, dash of olive olive oil). I think cocoa butter is meant to be good too, especially for any marks left behind. Just be careful with lemon juice cos you will apparently burn more easily in the sun. Also anything with lovely scents and stuff will probably not be as good as the more plain stuff cos the scents and flavours tend to be pore blockers.

    But honestly i'd see how it goes with something from the doctor or pharmacy. There are some things they can give you that can be really effective. Most are topical with ingredients like alcohol so it's not like taking medication, it's basically just a stronger version of branded ones. It's at least worth trying.

    The hormonal contraceptive pill.

    A woman's ovaries and adrenal glands normally produce low levels of androgens. Higher levels of androgens can lead to excess sebum. Taking birth control pills that contain both estrogen and progesterone lowers the amount of androgens in your body. This results in less sebum and less severe acne.

    I am also in this situation and I'm going to the doctors tomorrow about it actually. I think they might suggest prescribing a drug called accutane and I've read all about it. A very dangerous and high risk drug, very sinister. If they suggest this, hell no am I taking it. Not a cats chance in hell! It can make you very very depressed.

    Use honey as a mask, it's great for scars, spots and blemishes, you can mix it with extra virgin olive oil.

    Honey has antimicrobial properties and the stickiness pulls away dead skin and microbes from the pores while the antimicrobial properties keep the skin from getting infected again.

    Take the diary out of your diet.

    Get a lotion, preferably a gel which has ''Benzoyl peroxide''.

    Scrub using sea salt and coconut oil. Moisturize your skin because drying out the skin will only force it to produce more oil.
