What Has Helped My Acne, Serious



I have been in the same shoes as you, have tried everything to rid face of this awful skin disease! I am now 16 and still have a little acne, had my worst acne in 8th grade. My zits and cysts looked so irritated, like a spider just came up and gave me a nasty bite! I will tell you what does not work for my oily face:

-Benzoyl Peroxide (Proactive)

-Hydrogen peroxide


-Witch Hazel

-Tea tree oil

-Any soap (drys face)

-Egg Whites

-Baking Soda (burns face)


What has really helped me?

-Apple Cidear Vinegar. Acne.org should not say home remedies are "largely" ineffective. This is one of the few rememedies I have tried that really works! Try it, vinegar may smell nasty, but the smell goes away in 5 minutes, no kidding. This is the best thing I have tried for my acne, I am SERIOUS! Dilute with water or your face will get dry and red. I also apply this to my keratois pilaris on my arms (have it really bad) and my body acne, I barely have any keratosis pilaris/body acne now.

-Coconut oil. Yes, oil, many people think any oil gives you acne, but that is not true. A healthy face needs moisturizing, what better way to do it naturally! After the ACV dries, rub the Coconut oil onto your skin.

-Salycilic Acid pads. I use Stridex and apply to my face and body.

This what my regime is and it is pretty simple:

1. -Shower everyday

2. -Dry off, then apply one Stridex pad each for my body and face.

3. -Apply diluted ACV after I brush my teeth before I got to bed on my face and body,

4. -Wait till ACV dries, then apply a little coconut oil to my face.

Try this for a week and I want to know if this clers any of your acne up! Good luck!

You lost me at coconut oil on your face. Oil does cause acne and you will soon develop worse acne called cosmetic acne of your own invention.
