do topicals actually work?

Recommended Posts

has anyone actually managed to get clear from just using topicals and no antibiotics or accutane or anything? and managed to stay clear too?

So you need anitibiotics and accutane for cystic acne? I don't have any cystic, so would that mean I would be clear using topicals only?

maybe. i did have cysts, but the topicals didn't even clear some of my non cysts, the got rid of the comedones and smoothed my skin out though

They work for me when I stick to them regularly and don't use too much... i.e. sticking to a pea-sized amount. When I use too much, my skin becomes unbearable and so I end up quitting (Bad, I know)
