Hi Roz! We share similar histories. I am new here too and really excited to build a support system. Acne can be so isolating! I also had really clear skin as a teen, and now, at 23, I've been battling cystic/hormonal acne for about 5 years. I also don't like to leave the house without makeup, and wearing so much makeup makes me really uncomfortable, but it's the lesser of two evils. I am happy to hear the retiming is working for you, good luck!

Just posted on a similar topic, so I'm just gonna copy/paste my reply here.. Good luck!

I have tried lots of natural/holistic methods to clear up my skin, and saw some decent results. I used raw honey as a face wash for about a year, and it did a pretty good job of keeping my skin somewhat clear. I've tried the oil cleansing method, which was pretty good, but it was too drying. I've also tried baking soda/sea salt scrubs, but abrasive products tend too be too harsh for me. Rose water toner was really refreshing and also did an okay job, but again, it just wasn't right for me. I suggest doing some research to try and find a natural product that would work best for you. There are lots of YouTube channels that can be pretty informative, and it's nice to see other people's experiences with products. But, everyone is different, and what works for you might not work for someone else. I really suggest paying attention to your diet. Eating lots of healthy, unprocessed foods and drinking plenty of water will probably show positive results. Good luck! - See more at: http://www.acne.org/...h.MsUvsaNu.dpuf
