Acne is evil.

1. I have a combination of newish and fading pimples and whiteheads around my mouth and on my chin. They need to be gone or at least drastically reduced by this Saturday. I'm washing and astringing/toning my face 2-3 times a day with various salicylic acid cleansers, and using a 10% benzoyl peroxide cream. The benzoyl peroxide will probably clear it up in time but does anyone have their own remedies they'd like to add? Please don't tell me I'm overwashing my face, because believe me, it's rehydrating itself. I have to blot oil off my nose several times a day. Even using a tiny bit of salicylic acid face lotion makes my face unbelievably greasy.

2. Also, would it be best to go makeup free (besides some powder so I won't be reflective from all the oil) or to wear foundation (oil-free) and a coverup with salicylic acid?

3. Why doesn't tweezing or depilating last as long as waxing?

4. Is it possible to become immune to Nair? I keep the four minute facial hair formula stuff on for fifteen minutes and there's still some hairs. My upper lip hair is not coarse, so I don't see what the problem is. Would switching to a different brand help?
