I'm new to this site, But I wanted to share all of you struggling with acne miracles. They may be expensive, But these steps WILL work, Promise ! I had severe cysts, blackheads, and many pustules, Now I might get a pustule a month! I began using TAMAHRA'S SECRET SKINCARE and RETIN-A GEL .1 . I used Tamahra's secret Iconic Spritzer, manuka cleanser, Silvercure toner, Zit-O day lotion, and lite and velvet sunscreen in the morning. At night I used Iconic spritzer, Manuka cleanser, Silvercure toner, Retin-a .1 , and clearzit masque all over my face every night. I applied the cleanser and toner with cotton pads, Light non irritating exfoliation. I also used a washcloth 2x a day morning and evening before any of the products, for a pre cleanse exfoliation, if you will, just water and light circular motions. I did this for 3 weeks, then got a PHYSICIAN CHOICE ARIZONA (PCA) Peel and extractions. this consisted of 1 layer PCA ULTRA PEEL, Extractions, ANOTHER LAYER ULTRA, AND FINISHED OFF WITH ESTHETIQUE. I did peels and extractions every 3 weeks for 4 months. Then I started rotating between peel and acne facial. For makeup, I used jane iredale EVERYTHING, and the nice thing about the Jane iredale is it is anti-microbial and you can use the Tamahra's secret Iconic spritzer to set your makeup! It took about 6 months total, and 6 months later, no cysts no pustules and MINIMAL blackheads. At the year point I started Obagi Nu derm with Retin-a cream .05 along with CLARISONIC skincare brush. I'm seeing wonderful results with filling in these nasty scars I got, and still very clean skin. the Obagi and clarisonic did cause an INITIAL purge of about 6-8 weeks, But I just saw my medical aesthetician every 2 weeks for facials until it cleaned me up.
