1) The broken skin: Apply a layer of polysporin or neosporin (topical cream that promotes rapid healing) on your face three times a week (I recommend doing it in the evening) until the skin heals – space it out. 2) Wash with a mild cream cleanser every morning and evening, not a bar soap, not anything with bursting beads or grains, a cream cleanser with salicylic acid, Clearasil makes some really great ones. 3) Once all open wounds have healed begin acne cream, benzoyl works for some people but a sulfur based cream will be more effective, again, Clearasil makes this. Use the acne cream only once a day, again I suggest in the evening so it has time to sink in over night. 4) You need to moisturise son! Your face is fucking dry, so get a gentle oil free moisturiser, one made for acne prone skin (make sure this doesn’t have acne fighting products in it however). Use this at least four mornings a week but also use your discretion, four times a week may be too often. 5) Don’t touch your face. 6) Sunscreen all the time, because acne treatment will make your skin more susceptible to sun burns. 7) Your skin will never be 100% clear, but neither does it have to be this bad. 8) If you miss washing your face one day don’t panic, and don’t double up on products the next day either. 9) If your moisturiser, cleanser, cream, etc… doesn’t seem to be working (and give it at least four weeks before arriving at that conclusion) switch it up. Try a different brand.
