Hi! I'm almost 14 and I've had issues with acne for a year as of december. I had perfect, flawless skin and then out of nowhere I got about 10 pimples on each cheek that varied on size and came and went for about 4 months and then I FINNALY got my skin back up to par and it was perfect again... that lasted for a month because I got spoilt, lazy and thought I didn't have to work on it anymore. A few tiny tiny tiny little bumps showed up on my right cheek I didn't care I thought it would go away but no. Overnight LITTERALLY I went from those tiny tiny bumps to FULLBLOWN CYSTIC ACNE when I woke up. That lasted for 6months.

I tried EVERYTHING from natural remedies ie, honey cinnamon mask, witch hazel, rosewater and castor oil to acne medication and cleansers like salisylic acid, beta hydroxy, alpha hydroxy, retin-a and as a last resort of desparation benzoyl peroxide which I didn't want to try because I knew it works but your skin gets addicted and u need more and more but at that point I would do anything to get my skin back.... it still didn't work. Everything would work one week and worse the next.

So at that time I thought hmm ok it isn't topical I guess so I changed my diet, I don't eat fruits or vegetables at ALL! so this is the part I dreaded the most. I cut out sweets, didn't work. I cut out fast food, didn't work. ate veggies, didn't work. I tryed to detox with teas, herbs, barley grass, apple cider vinegar, fish oil, vitamin c, and nothing worked as a matter of fact the healthier I ate the sicker I got internally and externally. I was at a point where I pretty much gave up. No make up could cover the monstrous non human like skin.

It wasn't untill I came across TEA TREE OIL and De La Cruz SULPUR that I started to look like myself again. It took 3months to get my face clear. It was worth it.

NOW--------------- I had clear skin for about 2months up untill recently. I have these strange white head like bumps that formed on my forehead and multipleid by hundreds and they r noticeable in the sunlight and makeup helps but I still want to know how to fix this. its a stange kind of acne I have now that is speading to my cheeks and around the mouth. they aren't white head because when extracted it let's out a rocklike yellow or clear ball others don't budge. On top of that I come across pimples and cysts in between my eyebrows. HELP ANY RECOMENDATIONS????????????????????? Thank you for reading my novel

It's important to see treatment for acne as a long term process. Unfortunately, all treatment generally takes a month to start working properly. I guarantee if you used retina a and benzoyl peroxide for 2 months you would see an effect. 

 

What you are describing are comedones and, as I think you are finding,  a complete pain to get rid of. I wouldn't advise trying to pop them as around 80% of the time (for me at least) they end up getting infected and turning into something much nastier. There is evidence that salisylic acid and glycolic acid helps to open them up to get rid of them.
