    Accutane.

    This

    Lots of people take very low doses of this to keep their skin clear. Nothing a teenager would require, but just enough.

    That along with an intelligent daily routine, sun screen to keep wrinkles at bay, and frequent acid masks and microderm will give you "movie star" skin.

    Honestly people, accutane changed my life. Whoever is scared of it, don't be. There is ONE cure for acne and that is accutane. Try it if you are having problems with your skin - you will thank me later.

    Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

    I actually believe that keeping yourself hydrated actually helps maintain good skin. Drink a glass of water before going to bed and avoid, if you can, sleeping in airconditioned rooms.

    I think diet has a roll in it. I find that my face is more clear when I eat more fruits and greens.

    Simply switching from razor to electric made a difference for me.

    Speaking of accutane, don't you guy worry about taking something that harsh? There are a dozen side effects and a good number of them have been reported to be permanent in some cases. Is it worth it? Besides you never know what other crap it might cause 15 years and 100 lawsuits later.

    well first of all they do lots of chemical peels, facials, etc that cost tons of money. you can try to go to a dermatologist and see what they recommend. they could give you antibotics or certain creams or even put you on birth control (which helps acne). Also you can go to a spa and get facials or chemical peels, but those range from $50-$150. And if you can't or tried that already you can try to not eat any dairy products for awhile such as milk, cheese, etc. and see if thats a trigger. dairy products have a lot of hormones in them, so if you have acne-prone skin that could be a reason why. hope that helped.
