I'm sure it's my hormones but I'm still getting breakouts at this age!

Does anyone know of anything that may help? I don't have particularly greasy skin now although used to. It's a bit blotchy too.

What worked for me (big red bumps on jawline) is taking a vit d supplement, and cleaning face with Simple wipes.

Thanks. Funnily enough I was looking at the Vitamin D tablets this morning. I keep forgetting to take them.

What's working for me is salicylic acid. I use Nip and Fab Dragon's Blood wipes at night, followed by Superdrug spot gel. In the morning I use Vichy normaderm toner and more gel.
I also always use a proper cleanser (currently Ren) to remove make up and then a mild face wash.

Thanks for the tips NB. You really look after your skin. I'm far too lazy and need to make more of an effort.

Yes, you may need something with salicylic acid (google that and overproduction of sebum). La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo is v good:
