I think it's been described as mild acne (?), perhaps? Not so sure. I have oily skin and I tend to breakout right before my period but I also have little scarring. Right now, I'm using the Biore Pore Perfect line and I like it for the most part but it doesn't prevent breakouts. Is there anything I can do?

Talk to your dermo, first. If you don't havve one, get one! I thought I had
"mild acne" also but it turned out to be mildy cystic. Even if your skin is
oily, be sure to use an oil-free moisturizer (though sometimes
"noncomedogenic" doesn't do much for dry spots in my experience),
avoid wearing liquid makeup often and don't use conditioner on bangs or
any other hair like framing layers that touch your face often. Make sure
to keep hair out of face while you sleep.

Since premenstrual breakouts are an internal thing, your dermo might be
able to prescribe minocycline or another antibiotic that will prevent
bacteria internally clogging your pores.
