Going to try this definitely. I am a high school student and because I am a Mormon (LDS) I wake up every morning at 5:20 to attend bible class :P. I am on minocycline now but it has given me really terrible side effects (vertigo, yeast infections, headaches, nausea, ear infection, etc.) to name a few. I am going to try "cleansing" my system with a TON of water, vegetables, fruits, and plenty of sleep. Thanks for the tip. I feel more motivated now.

I personally don't think that your acne looks so severe that is is cystic, rather it might just be papules. Are your zits really painful and swollen, and do they scar without you even popping them? Also, do they feel really hard and have pus? this would indicate that they are cystic.

A spinbrush is one of these:

I have this one, it is a Clarisonic Mia 2. It is kind of expensive but has worked WONDERS on my skin; within the first use I could tell my skin was softer and it exfoliates really well. Really any brand works just make sure that it is a good quality and does a good job actually cleaning your skin. It needs to be one that actually gets into your pores, like this one does.

I recommend, if possible, getting extractions at your derm. I got them for my back and they really helped. It is hard to get to the back because you can't really reach it or see it. Also, it helps to exfoliate a lot or use a good quality spinbrush cleanser
