New Acne Regimen

Recommended Posts

Ok so I recently started a new way of trying to stop my acne and I was looking for some feedback. I recently bought this acne cleanser from Neutrogena for stubborn acne and I loved it. The problem is it has a lot of chemicals and caused my skin to dry out. Also I was going through it like crazy and it costs a little less than ten bucks per bottle. My skin was very dried out and I can't use normal moisturizers because I have skin that is extremely prone to break outs. It is oily, but yet dry, and reacts badly to any kind of moisture.

So because of this I decided to change my routine to something more natural. I did a lot of researching and this was my decision.


wash with honey (I normally leave it on when I eat then wash it off with warm water)

Apple cider vinegar toner (I used two parts water one part acv)

Small dab of coconut oil under eyes (I love this I feel like it's helping with my dark circles!)

Then primer and makeup


Wash with my stubborn acne cleanser

Acv toner

Coconut oil under eyes

That has been my process for the last four days. My skin looks a little better and is less dry. I did develop two new pimples and I don't know if that's the first stage of healing or if it's because my new regimen isn't working. Should I add lemon to my honey for my scars? Just looking for feedback and ideas. THANKS! :)
