I wouldn't use direct peroxide on your skin. What are you currently using? Have you tried the Clearasil line? It's an oldy but a goodie for acne-prone skin. You can always buy a spot treatment for minimal pimples.....I like Neutrogena Acne Eliminating Spot Gel.

Are you talking about hydrogen peroxide? If so, I wouldn't recommend putting it on your face. It will just make it really dry & flaky. I know, because that's what I did, when I was a teenager. It really didn't do much to get rid of my acne. If you're experiencing break outs, you need to be washing your face 2-3 times a day with an acne cleanser and wiping your face with Witch Hazel before bed. If your acne is really bad, ask your parents to make an appointment for you to see a Dermatologist.
