I have nice skin but get occasional breakouts? HELP!

I have nice skin but I also have combination & sensitive skin. And every now and then I get breakouts. Its really annoying. I always get them on my T-Zone (Forehead, nose, chin) because of my skin type. And I get zits on the sides of my forehead and groups of pimples on the middle of my forehead. Then whiteheads & blackheads on my nose. And then zits on my chin. I am really good about washing my face. I even have a clarisonic! But they wont go away!! what do I do??

Acne is mostly caused by hormones. You can't change that. But if you stick to a strict maintenance schedule you can help prevent acne caused by bacteria and oils. Everyday twice per day(morning and night) wash your face with a mild cleanser like Cetaphil, follow with an alcohol free toner like Neutragena's Alcohol Free Toner, finish with an oil free moisturizer. Every other day(in the summer) use an acne face scrub to remove dirt and oils from your pores. You could also use a washcloth and Cetaphil. For blackheads you need heat and a scrub. if you can't find a warming scrub place a warm washcloth on your face for 5 mins then use a scrub. you have to open the pores in order to get the dirt out(blackhead).
