Must share with everyone!

Before you read, just keep in mind that i'm a competitive swimmer, so my skin is very dry after i practice.

i had suffered from moderate acne for years-whiteheads all across my forehead and cheeks, and the occasional cyst on my chin or cheekbones. I was fed up with my skin feeling disgusting because of bp and salyclic acid products, so i just stopped. I started rinsing my face with water before school in the morning, then rinsing it again after school. after swim practice that afternoon, i would wash with dove go fresh moisturizing soap bar, and then apply fruit of the earth aloe vera with naturals lotion (remember, my skin was very flaky and dry after practice.)

that was it! at first my acne stayed the same, but it was alot more comfortable, so i was happy. then i had a large breakout, but that quickly cleared up. Now, its been two months and i've only had the occasional whitehead! only small bumps arewidespread, but thats ok!!! i haven't been clear this long since i was 10!!

anyway, i hope this helps somebody, if there's any swimmers with acne out there.

let me know any similar stories you guys have!!

and good luck, everyone!

:dance:
