Acne Treatments For Sensitive Skin

Maria asks…

How to contain acne for sensitive skin?

I have really bad acne. Mostly blackheads that won’t go away. I have used Skinid, neutrogena, PanOxyl, and proactiv. None of them work for me. I went to a dermatologist and they gave me a anti-yeast treatment. It doesn’t seem to work. I have also used Clean & Clear. I get really bad breakouts and I have one right now, which is really bad. Like impossible to handle. Do you have any treatments for sensitive skin. My skin tends to dry up and peel. PLEASE HELP!

The less products you use, the better for your skin. Treat your face like your skin. Use Bath wash like Suave Bath & Body Gel, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free.

Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around. Example: ProActiv contains a known carcinogen, at a percentage known to promote skin cancer.

The FDA has called for more safety studies on benzoyl peroxide (main ingredient for ProActive) because of concern about what happens when skin treated with it is exposed to the sun. Until research can establish or disprove a possible skin cancer link to the use of benzoyl peroxide products, the agency plans to require an extra warning and directions on the labeling: “When using this product, avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use sunscreen.” and “If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow [product name] to dry, then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a doctor.”

If you’re OVER SENSITIVE AND ALLERGIC TO ALMOST, lotions can and will add to more discolorations on your skin AND WILL NOT protect your from burns, cancer, or allergies even those tested by dermatologists.

Good thinking! Question 6b is True!
After all, people are individuals. And there’s no telling what any individual may be allergic to. According to the cosmetic industry, “hypoallergenic” means “less likely to cause an allergic reaction.” But dermatologists – and consumers who have allergies – know that the word “hypoallergenic” on the label is no guarantee against an allergic reaction.

Nope! Question 6c is False!
“Dermatologist tested” doesn’t really tell you much, does it? It leaves you wondering about things like:
•Did the dermatologist work for the manufacturer?
•How many people was the product tested on?
•How long did the testing last?
•What were the results of the testing?

Remember, poison ivy is all natural, too! But you probably don’t want it on your skin. It is very possible to have an allergic reaction, or other irritation, from products labeled “all natural” or “organic.” For example, lanolin, from sheep’s wool, is a common natural ingredient in some moisturizers that sometimes causes allergic reactions.


I get one tiny zit a month or none. I have very clear, soft & silky complexion and I’m 60 years old, same as when I was in HS.

Sharon asks…

What is the best over the counter acne treatment?!?

I’ve had problems with acne since middle school. I’ve gone to dermatolgists and have used all sorts of medicine from them and nothing. I’ve even used ProActive for a couple of years with only mediocre (if thats how you spell it) results. So I was wondering, instead of going back to the doctors, what are some of the best drugstore acne treatments out there? I have sensitive skin also so I have to be careful. And if anyone knows what makeup will help me not to breakout, that’d be great too.

And please, no one say ProActive. I’m not trying that again.

Thank You!

I’ve had great results with an Aveda product call Outer peace Acne face wash. There’s a whole line of the products for acne but honestly I’ve only used the face wash. It’s worked great for me. Not over drying but strong enough to kill the acne. That and a very light, sensitive moisturizer works great to balance out your skin.

You could probably do a search for the product to come up with a price and retailer near you. Hope that helps!

Donald asks…

How to get rid of blackheads when I have dry skin?

My chin and nose are covered with blackheads, too many to squeeze, but I have very sensitive skin anyway and that would irritate it. I can’t use typical acne treatments, because my skin is very dry and I almost never get pimples (I’m 30). Any suggestions (inexpensive) for clearing up my skin? The rest of my face looks fine!
