I've used everything. I can't use BP since I'm allergic to it. I can't use the pill after suffering a mini-stroke. Accutane worked temporarily & made me terribly depressed. But, honey & cinnamon have worked wonders. First-- USE ORGANIC CINNAMON. When I used whatever was in the spice aisle, the stinging was worse. I get my cinnamon from Mountain Rose Herbs. It's cheaper & costs about $7 for a pound of powdered cinnamon. It's fresh & the stinging is reduced. Into a small glass container, mix half cinnamon & half honey until you like the consistency. I make it a bit thick so it doesn't run all over. If the weather's hot, stay in the bathroom-- the honey will melt. I generally put this on just before taking a shower. It will get everywhere-- so pull your hair back & be prepared. Leave it on NO LONGER THAN 30 minutes & that's a lot. If you leave it on too long, you'll burn your skin. I generally leave it on for 15 minutes. Use it every day for the first 2 weeks. Then reduce to every other day. Make sure you monitor your skin for any overly dry patches. I used it on my body & it did wonders, but I developed a patch of eczema because I may have overused the treatment initially. Overall-- the cost is nominal. A pound of cinnamon will last you a year. A jar of honey will last about 3 months. My cost estimate of $17 goes well beyond a single month. My acne isn't gone. There is no magic pill, but this has helped reduce what were pretty bad break outs to something more managable. The only other things I use are a good moisturizer, Grandpa's sulfur soap 2x a day (no more), & lavender essential oil (42/40) as a spot treatment..Pros:
