Well, here we go again!

A little about me, I'm a 20 yr old female, I'm a mother, I'm a working student, and I'm fighting an on going battle with back acne. I've never had a problem with acne on my face, so it was extremely embarrassing when other girls saw me in a swim suit or tank top when I was younger.(it all started when I was about 12) I used Clean & Clear, Clearasil, Oxy, Neutrogena, Proactive. (literally EVERYTHING) I finally went to the dermatologist when I was 16 and got an antibiotic, and topical gel. I thought I had the answers to all my prayers! It worked for a few months, and then back to the same thing. I got pregnant and all the sudden my acne was gone! But as soon as my hormones went back to normal, my usual skin problems did too. I went back to over the counter products (because let's face it, with a child you have more important things to spend your money on than dermatologist's appointments and acne prescriptions), which help more now, probably because I have better eating habits, an exercise routine, and an actual schedule. But nothing ever makes it completely go away. So I came here to see if I could find something new that seems like it worked better for adults, rather than teenagers. And I did! Something natural (which is what I'm all about in this "Go Green" world we live in!) and inexpensive. Tea tree oil, and apple cider vinegar. Which you can both get at wonderful Wal Mart (along with a Camouflage jacket, and a gallon of milk. ya know, all your household needs) for all around $15. Which is a lot less expensive than the new SkinID treatment. I read in a forum here that you apply the tea tree oil first letting it dry, and then the apple cider vinegar right before bed. All of the posts in that forum had nothing but praise for this treatment. So I'm hoping I'll be singing its praises too. and looking forward to keeping anyone who might be interested in my common struggle posted on how this works for me.
