Does anyone have any advice for someone with a lot of acne that doesn't include medication? I have very oily skin and it seems like I can never really get my acne under control. I wash my face with CeraVe 2-3 times a day and use the moisturizer as well, which has been very useful but I still have a lot of acne. It makes me very insecure, especially being in my 20s and still getting acne like I'm 13. I dont know a lot about skincare, so any advice would be appreciated!

      I use CeraVe for my acne also and I'm in my 30's. It seems to work well but only use it once a day because it dries out my skin. I keep my hair off my skin by keeping it in a ponytail. I heard that's supposed to help.

      Aztec clay masks have really helped me and so have some products by the Ordinary. The other major issue for me was a gluten intolerance but ik that won’t be the case for everyone

      Changes in diet and exercise can really help! The amount you touch your face, stress, hygiene products, food intolerances. All these are pretty common things I've heard cause acne flaring and can be treated without meds:)
