Basically i suffer from severe acne, I have about 6 cysts in total, a couple on either side of my cheeks. But I have been on antibiotics for a few weeks and well I went to the beach yesterday and it helped alot. I have been told it is because of the bacteriaphages or something like that, that are in the sea water. So if I were to say grab loads of bottles and collect as sea water and use a spray to cover my face in sea water each day that would help my acne.

But will the bacteria that is in the sea water last a couple of months? or will it die and be completely pointless applying it on my face. This is because I dont live near the beach back in the UK, we were just on holiday.

Has anyone else tried this before?

Thank you

Salt water is good because it acts as an exfoliate and it cleanses skin well. I've had great results just going to the beach. However, it can dry skin out a lot so I don't recommend using it all the time.
