Premenstrual pimples...

Ok ladies, I've got another question for ya. Is there anything that can be done to avoid premenstrual pimples? Every month I get my face all nice and clear and then BAM...pimples a couple days before my period! They're never the little ones either! They are always pretty big and they usually hurt. So is there something I can do in the days ahead of that "wonderful" time to help avoid this?

    Um...get pregnant?

    Seriously, I think just good skin care all the time helps prevent hormonally-related breakouts. I don't get pre-menstrual breakouts anymore since I stopped using detergent cleansers and started using good-quality salicylic acid.

    Some people will never be able to prevent acne with skin care...especially if it's cystic acne...and will need medical treatment. Accutane is the only true acne cure. Anything else just "controls" it.

    My zits got worse when I got pregnant!

    And I've been using PSF for over a month now & my face is oilier & I have more breakouts. :(ETA1: Maybe it's the once to twice daily cleansing that's doing it? :? ETA2: I wonder if it's also the once to twice daily buffing pad causing my skin to respond with more oil production.
