Hi Guys,

My water softner blew up a few months ago, and now my water is very harsh. I have had breakouts since then, but cannot afford a new water softner. I went away on vacation last week, and I had barely one pimple the entire time. I've been back for maybe 24 hours and i have a face full. What can I do? :(

Fill a clean large basin with warm water, and use that for face washing instead. Or do your washing in the shower? I dunno, thats what I suggest.

Ask to go to the dermatologist if they don't replace the water softener (most good parents won't say no to a dermatologist unless they really are too poor) -- that might convince them (make sure you remind them that fewer & fewer insurance companies are covering the majority of acne meds being prescribed).

(unless of course you're an adult living with them)

i heard that spots take about 4 days to appear and i dont think they can just come up that quickly, they must have started developing under your skin before you got back from vacation so it probably wasn't the water
