I always peruse this site because I am a mild to moderate acne sufferer, but it had gotten increasingly worse over the last few months. I have never posted on here before, but I felt the need to because I found something that may work for others.

4 weeks ago I went to the beach for vacation and I was pleasantly surprised while during my 7 days there I never got a newpimple, and the ones that I did have healed quickly.

When I came home I talked to my parents about not having any problems while at the beach and they attributed it to the sun and saltwater from the ocean. After I was back for 2-3 days I could see the pimples starting to come back again.

My Dad said that maybe I should try rinsing my face with saline solution as it is sodium chloride (salt) in sterile water. I thought, what the heck?

It works. It actually works. I had saline solution at home because I wear contacts and have very sensitive eyes so I use just the SALINE Solution Target brand. I wash my face as usual, but before I use any topical creams or moisturizers, I pat saline solution all over my face.

It's been a little over a week and I'm continuing to clear up.

Just a thought.
