Is chlorine! Not directly but Swimming!!! I always noticed when I was in my late teens that when I swam allot my acne (non cystic back then) would go away as long as I would swim once a week or so. Swimming under water or just putting your head under water for long periods of time so that the chlorine get in there and cleans it out. Typically for at least an hour once a week is what I used to do. I am not sure if it will help cystic acne as I havnt swam that often since i have had cystic acne. However I am going to definately swim once a week this summer becuase if nothing it gets rid of regular acne pimples that arrise and always leaves my face feeling tight and soft.
