Lately I've been breaking out like a teenager and I'm 28. Does anyone know of a zit cream that actually works or something that actually gets rid of blackheads?

My face is really sensitive, so I can only use certain products. Pro-Active dried/burned my face, so I stopped using that. Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub worked great for me. However, I decided to try Neutrogena SkinID and it is amazing because they go by your skin type and not just in general.

I have been using Zap It (order it through melaleuca) and it is amazing. I love this stuff!

I ordered SkinID and I am just waiting on it to come in the mail. I have had a hard time using other things and started using the Neutrogena Rapid Clear collection and it worked so I thought trying this would be better since it caters to your particular skin type.

Benzoyl peroxide from the drug store. The 17.99 one or the "expensive" one. Its still cheaper than proactive and works the same. Use it a few times after a non-medical face wash like Cetaphil. Also if you are taking vitamins and suppliments, some of those can make you break out too. B complex and iodine are worst for me!

Beta Hydroxy products do an excellent job at controlling acne (whiteheads AND blackheads). If after several weeks your skin isn't clearing up though I would recommend switching to products that contain Benzoyl Peroxide. Keep in mind that Benzoyl must stay on your face for it to work and also that it dries out your skin so moisturizer is vital.

28 here and yes breakouts! UGH! I use Aveeno Clear Complextion face wash AND moisturizing lotion. I've tried to go with out it as it is expensive but I always return to it! Neutrogena has an 8 hour spot treatment that works well also.

Velocity by Mary Kay is an excellent product. I would recommend it alone with MK Acne Treatment Gel and MK Microdermabrasion for the blackheads. Yes, if you are consistent you will see results. www.marykay.com/destine2b

I got an extraction facial once, it was awesome. I use a facial cleanser and day/night serum and moisturiser and microdermabrasion stuff every second day it helps make them clear up.

I haven't had acne since I was a teenager, but using the pro-active product actually cleared me up over time. For blackheads though, I've heard the only way to get rid of them is with a facial that extracts them. I'm getting my first facial soon so I'll let you know if it's true!
