I've had acne since I was 12 (small but many pimples on my forehead) and I'm already 20 and it has not improved one bit. I wash my face, I've tried a ton of products, I've gone on antibiotics. Now I'm trying to change my diet (mainly remove dairy).
Dont say "wash your face" because if you know stubborn acne, you know you've tried everything and washing your face doesn't help.
Any successful stories out there? What did you do to get rid of your acne?

i didn't stop getting acne for the most part until i was about 24, im 26 now and still get the occasional stubborn pimple or 2 but for the most part i dont have any problems anymore. But girls mature faster than guys so maybe it won't take as long for you, and it also goes person to person. there's no tried and true solution, you can clean your face daily which should help, cut down on oily foods, and try to lower any stress, but honestly its just a natural human body process and you just kinda gotta deal with it until it dies down a bit.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Stop eating dairy. Realized I was allergic to gluten (it was causing me headaches and stomachaches as well). More than halved my sugar intake.
I now eat 60 percent veggies, 30 percent meat, and 10 percent everything else. Oh and I only drink water, mineral water, or sparkling water. Sugary drinks are the best way to ingest way too much sugar.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
