Okay so I used to have PERFECT skin that just glowed, with no acne or anything, and as soon as this summer hit my face just went downhill. I don't have insurance, so a dermatologist is a much avoided option for me right now. i've tried using h20+ products (cleanser and moisturizer and an overnight perfecting peel) didn't help anything at all. I started going outside and tanning which started to clear up my face super nice and give it a nice glow, but I live in las vegas and am super sensitive to the heat and now it's 108 degrees out all week, so that's ruled out. But my skin is just absolutely awful and I'm borderline on my way into a salon and asking the aesthetician to fix me lol. I still have a left over product from when i was like 14-15 called derma doctor ain't misbehavin from sephora, that cleared up my acne and some cera ve moisturizer from my dermatologist (when I had insurance). I started using that. My skin is just awful, there is acne everywhere. I may be freaking out, but I do realize that there is a solution and a way to fix it and I want to know and thought why not try this first. I realize it takes time. There's acne all over my chin and forehead and now starting to go all over my cheeks. I'm 18 years old, and also a model and I have to be in a Paul Mitchell hair show this month and i'd rather not worsen it with foundation and concealer, I exercise about 3 times a week, vegetarian, I eat super healthy (only drink water, eat salad, take a multi vitamin, eat cereal, vegetables, drink v8, eat salmon and nuts, grains). So it's just super un natural to me, being super healthy and seeing that is difficult. So if someone could recommend something that would be absolutely awesome! Also my skin type is sensitive, not dry or oily, just normal but sensitive, I do have a lot of allergies. Also I am on doxycycline hyclate right now, because I have epididymitis, a medicine that is used to clear up acne and my acne is getting worse on it. So anything is much appreciated, thanks for reading.

Try a gluten free diet for a few weeks. A lot of people who have acne are actually intolerant to gluten. You can google gluten free diet to find the foods to avoid. See if this helps , as it works for people who have had no luck with lotions , antibiotics , birth control pills , etc.
