The oil cleansing method, often abbreviated to OCM, is a system for cleaning a human face using oils. The basic method uses a mixture of 80% extra virgin olive oil and 20% castor oil. The mixture can be optimized based on skin type and personal preference. Oily skin can make use of a larger proportion of castor oil. Other oils that are commonly used are sunflower oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil.
In this beauty treatment, the oil is rubbed into skin for approximately two minutes. Next, a warm, damp wash cloth is draped over face until it cools. A cooled wash cloth is then used to wipe off the excess oil with continued rubbing. One or two drops of olive oil or another oil may be used to moisturize the skin after the cleansing oil has been removed from the face.

Can't really give you any tips, only that you should go and get a re-assemment from a doctor or skin specialist.

I had moderate acne when I was younger..
I personally noticed that when I had a nice tan I had less acne. I started getting plenty of sun and using a moisturizer daily, nothing else, and that helped me quite a bit.
I know acne can have different causes so I don't think there can be a cure-all, but as I said I found getting a good dose of Vitamin D and keeping my face moisturized kept all but the most persistent blemishes away.
I also tried OTC and prescription medicines, none worked. Good luck!

I've tried that diet, not the enema tho....I will think about that one. My back door is just that....a back door. LOL! I will look into that one as well. If I have to stick something in my butt to be beautiful again,then I guess I'll just have to suck it up. hahahaha!
