I'm 46 and still get the occassional break out at that time of the month. I dab acne with milk of magnesia, leave on overnight, then rinse with warm water. Acne heals overnight or within 2 days;no scarring. Milk of mg can be very drying so i always use moisturiser after rinsing.

My dermatologist told me that Benzoyl Peroxide is the only thing that kills the bacteria which causes acne. I get mine from Amazon and get the Oxy 10% wash, and I can get 6 for $15! My insurance covered one little dried out bottle for $15, so I am always searching for a better deal.
I love Oil of Olay though, so I may have to give that a try. :)

Pro-Active worked for me for a while but they were a little expensive for what I was making at work at that time. That was about 8 years ago, though, and I have heard that they've even improved their formula. I wish they didn't just sell from online since I find it more convenient to purchase from a store.
I will have to try the Olay products, also. Thanks for sharing!

While I'm a bit older than you, I'm using Olay ProX Acne solution. I started getting really bad cystic acne on and off since I had my first child at 37. It really has seemed to work and has kept the acne at bay and my face clear.
