I'm on a quest to cure my moderate acne completely naturally. Any suggestions/reviews would be great! Thanks.

Tea tree oil
Sulfur
Diet
Turmeric Masks
Apple cider vinegar toner.Just start off with half vinegar and half water or green tea in a bottle.

I personally really enjoy Mychelle's skin clearing serum,Aveeno Ultra calming foam cleanser (Or Kiss my Face if you dislike parabens),and an AVC toner

Mychelle has a good sulfur and zinc spot treatment.Burt's Bees and Desert Essence have tea tree spot treatments.
Supplements:
25mg zinc citrate,1g B5(two 500mg caps,one with breakfast and one with dinner),500mg curcumin with biperine,Carlson's fish oil
Day Routine:
Honey/Clay Cleanser (1Tablespoon raw honey,1 tablespoon dry clay,4 Tablespoons water)
ACV Toner (half ACV,half water or green tea)
MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Mist

Night Routine:
Aveeno Ultra Calming Foam cleanser
ACV toner
MyChelle Skin Clearing Serum

Trinessa BCP
80%-90% clearer than before,depending on the "monthly terror" and luck
I'm always looking for homemade skincare recipes! Please share yours with me!

I've tried ACV as a toner mixed with water and green tea, but it always leaves me feeling like I have a greasy film on my face. I've also been drinking four teaspoons a day of it and haven't seen any difference in my skin. Thanks for the tips, i've been wanting to try the Mychelle's serum actually so i'll look into that:)

I've been using baking soda masks (every other day) for about a month now. GREAT results! I can't believe I've been baking with this forever and didn't even know what a benefit it would be to my acne.

My Regimen

Morning:
*Apply Olay Regenerist Micropurifying Foaming wash & use Clarisonic
(Love, love, love this thing!!)
*Estee Lauder Day Wear Moisturizer

Night:
*Olay Regenerist Micro-Purifying Foaming Cleanser
*Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream

Miscellaneous:
*Yaz BC *TCA Peels (15%) *Steam treatment *Psyllium Husk Caps

Current Status: Clear

Thanks! Can you tell me more about how you make the mask/how long you leave it on? And do you have sensitive skin?

SULFUR!!!! It completely cleared my skin. You can by a sulfur mask at Walmart or any drug store made by Acne Free. Or you can try the De La Cruz sulfur ointment. I use both.

It'll come out with some soap, but water by itself won't get it out. Usually your cleanser will do the trick. To be safe, try it an hour or so before bed, then wash it off with your cleanser. If it seems like it's not all off, it'll come off in the morning after a hot shower and cleanser. Tumeric masks are awesome biggrin.gif

The fruit enzyme mist from MyChelle that I use has turmeric extracts in it. It doesn't turn me yellow and it does seem to soothe my skin quite a bit. I use it as my morning moisturizer. It's very light in terms of moisturization,but it's decent for my normal to oily skin!

I mention MyChelle a lot, sorry lol.gif

I tried it last night. I'm fairly pale and it did not stain my skin much at all, I think because I mixed it with honey. A little toner afterwards and I was my normal color!
