I only get it when im close to my period. For those suffering, I used to suffer really badly from it because of overcleansing which stripped my skin of oils it needed and not drinking water. After I graduated, I threw all my facial cleansers away and just washed my face with water for months and it cleared up for the first time in YEARS. My scars faded as I spent more time in the sun too. When I started using proactive again, I broke out and had to throw it away. Now I use Japanese Biore because unlike the American version, the Japanese ones are very easy on the skin and get the job done. And then I moisturize so I dont dry out and break out more. c:
Another trick that helped was putting a towel on my pillow because since I only washed my sheets like, once every two weeks, I rolled around in the oil from y hair and face and broke out. but the towel absorbs it and prevents that.
