Hi, i am 28 years old and i have ance, mostly on my chin (inflamed, red pimples) and on cheeks forehead( to a lesser degree).

I have tried the harshest routes from accutane to retin a to bp and nothinf helps. I want to try natural/organic skin care.

I have tried DIY remedies such as ACV, green tea toner, epsom salt masks and it has made things worse. I am addressing my diet and underlying issues but can someone recommend a natural/organic skin care routine that has worked for them. The gentler, the better.


Thanks!

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

 

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Try to apply ice on the pimple it will reduce in some days. Also applying turmeric can reduce the pimples.
