hey i've had acne for around 2-3 years now and it just keeps getting worse and worse i've tried talking to dermatologist, tried proactive and many other solutions. i've been looking around the internet and these forums for solutions and i was wondering if this solution im gonna try is ok or if it'll be to harsh on my skin

well in mornings im gonna start by washing my face with salt water , then wash with backing soda maybe 10 mins after i'll try an egg mask (http://www.acne.org/egg-white-mask-reviews/203/page1.html) and apply some apple cidar on affected areas. and finally apply a lotion which contains SA

at night i will use an oxy pad to clear all the dirt

i'm not sure what to change what 2 add or if this is just stupid plz give me some feedback acnes rlly starting to effect my life :(

The salt water + baking soda combination seems like it will be too harsh. Both are very alkaline, which isn't really that good for your skin b/c skin's natural pH is acidic.

I've heard some people say their skin gets better with salt water, so maybe you can give salt water a try but leave out the baking soda. Both of them together seems like an unnecessary step.

And if you're going to use the AVC, make sure you dilute it because using it straight can be pretty harsh!

And, if you are using these products, you want to wear sunscreen or just stay out of the second (which is what I do) so your face won't get more irritated by the sun and turn red.

It all really depends on your skin....if you're skin is oily, then maybe you can handle it, but if your skin is dry (like mine), the salt might be a nightmare!
