I had really bad acne and face problems when I was 14/15 and on prednisone. My skin would be so dry it would be peeling and I'd put moisturizer on it and that would make it go to the other extreme and be seriously oily.
I started using Clean & Clear products and I have used them ever since and have excellent skin now.
The Advantage products can be a little harsh if you over use them but they work well. I always preferred the Clean&Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser or Foaming Acne Wash. In addition I use Deep Cleaning Astringent or Daily Pore Toner after washing at night which makes you feel dry and tight but it clears you right up.
I've had nothing but problems with Proactiv, Nuetrogena, Noxema, etc and they think the one that's in pill form (can't remember what it's called) is actually linked to UC in some cases so you don't want to do that!!
I would drive C&C a try, it was a total self esteem saver for me; it was REALLY rough being a teen with severe ulcerative colitis AND acne.
