*Sigh* I've developed some semi-serious acne again, and my skin hasn't been this bad since going gluten-free. Currently, I use Clearsil Daily Face wash and Neutrogena's Rapid Clear acne gel, which are both gluten-free. Obviously, neither one are doing that much to help. Anyone use an acne wash/cream/medication that works well and is gluten-free?
Thanks for any help!

Clearasil Total Control and Clearasil vanishing cream work really well for me. Their daily face wash makes me break out.
Burts Bees has a blemish stick that also has worked well in the past for me

Thanks for your help! I looked on Clearasil's website and found the vanishing cream, but I can't find the Total Control products, only the original blue products and the new Ultra products. Are the Total Control products a face wash?

My daughter has used Proactiv - which is available online - all of their products are gluten free and work really well.

If you wind up going to the dermatologist for it, both Differin and Clindamycin gels are gluten-free.

So Proactive is gluten-free? I contacted them about it (about 3-4 months ago), and they said they couldn't guarantee it (but it may have been a CYA statement).

Thanks for all the tips, and thanks for the pointer on the Total Control. I hate having acne, and if it doesn't get better, I will head to the dermatologist, so thanks, Donna, for the heads up on the prescription gels. Stupid acne! I was basically blemish free as a teenager, and now that I'm heading into my late twenties, it's acne city, and now I have these awful scars, too. Arghh!!!
