Oh wow. That's opening up a whole can of worms. If you have acne that is recurring and you are above 18-19 years of age (when hormonal and/or teenage acne tends to halt) there is something that your body is trying to get rid of. The skin is the last resort for the body to release its toxins. Whether the toxins are from a bad diet (sugary, rich, fatty -- see the "Clear Skin Diet" book) or from a yeast or parasite like intestinal candida (see "The Candida Cure: Yeast, Fungus & Your Health). Any dermatologist that tells you that there is no diet connection to the skin or no toxin/illness reflection on the skin is useless. Actually, anyone that shoves products at you is useless. Our bodies, by design, do not need facial care products. You shouldn't think you need some sort of prescription or wash from Walgreens to put on your face to keep it from breaking out. Your skin should be flawless AS IS, just with water. So, there is something that your body is trying to tell you. You have to investigate. If you have a history of antibiotics use, I recommend looking into candida albicans. Bad eating can definitely spur breakouts. But, it is not daily care. I'd say you're acne-free if you haven't gotten anything in 2-3 months, and everything is healed.
