Let's get on thing straight; Nobody's perfect. Everyone has zits. I KNOW you've heard it before, but its true. Go to www.freewebs .com/reelbeauty11 for beauty tips, and self-esteem builders. It's generally for young girls, but can help anyone really.
The best step against zits is PREVENTION. Wear a foundation with lots of water, and don't prop your chin up - otherwise your asking for chin zits.
Are a you vegetarian? sometimes people get zits because they are or aren't vegetarians.
ProActive works for some people, but not for others. If I were you, I'd stick with washing my face once in the morning, once at night, and maybe using an astringent every other day. If you have pimples, dab a bit of toothpaste on honey on them, but do not use as a mask!
Your regular doctor can generally help. A skin doctor doesn't know as much about your med. history.
Overall, remember that beauty counts more on the inside than on the outside, and your true friends will love you for you, and not your skin.
