hiii! sorry it has taken me forever to respond back! cetaphil is a gentle cleanser. it doesnt really foam, but its great for sensitive skin. do you work out? do you take any vitamin a or zinc? i really want to help you with your skin. normally i would say, go on accutane, but i know it isnt an option for you right now. what i would recommend is:

work out 5 days a week
vitamin a and zinc
paleo diet (lean meats, nuts and seeds, veggies, especially leafy greens because theyre packed with vitamin a, and some fruit!!!) this means no grains, dairy, or processed foods

for the cysts, i have had some luck putting draw out salve on them. look it up and see if this is an option for you. i only used it once on a huge cyst and it came to a head the next day and i was able to drain it. a lot of people would advice against it because of scarring, but i had to get rid of that thing ASAP because i had a job interview.

you might want to consider looking into this brand called ac care. its a korean skin care line for acne. i used it and had some success. its about the same price as murad products.

anyway, i hope youre well. keep your head up and know were all here for you!!! :)

Hi there!! I am half Vietnamese and have the same skin as you. I feel for you and I hope you can find something that can help with your skin. I would recommend Cetaphil gently cleanser and possible a clean diet, like Paleo. That has kind of helped my skin. As for the oilyness, maybe try some oil absorbing sheets. Good luck and keep us posted!

I just started taking YAZ about 5 weeks ago. The first month I did see some improvement. I had my period during the last two inactive pills then the acne came in full force. So, I've already mentally prepared myself that the second month is going to be a nightmare. I just had a chemical peel today also, so I hope that helps dry up the 20 pimples or so that are taking over my cheeks. :(
