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 :D

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:

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!
