Recommended Posts

yeah im new here but here we go..

Im a 19 year old male from Newark De. Ive had acne for a little over 5 years now. But now its gotten to the point where my whole face is red. And i get little-big breakouts on my cheeks and my chin, even on my forehead. Been to a derm, tried proactiv and dans regimen. I guess the only thing left is accutane right?

I used and still using proactive doesn't prevent acne but it does its best to reduce the impact on my face. Meaning...it makes pimple go away asap. That's about it. I still got scars from playing with my skin....which was my own fault. I think every other product has to be the same...they never actually stop acnes. I dunno try if you want.

Try a baking soda mask (seems to be working for me, and I'm a walking talking redmark).

Take about a quarter cup of baking soda, add enough water to make it a little thinner than toothpaste, then spread it all over your face (rub it in while you do so). Leave it on for a half hour (your face will feel like lava) then wash it off. I put it on before taking a shower, then wash it off in there. I've been doing this for a couple days now and it seems to be working well.
