Success Story: Worked for me

Recommended Posts

After 17 years, and a really bad start to 2017, I think I've finally found a way to control my acne. It's been about 5-6 months now and so far so good. I thought I would share:

*Lots of water: Invest in 64 ounce or more container to carry around with you all day.

*Vitamin C: Costco has a good deal. One tablet a day will do. I take with a big glass of water before bed.

*Gentle cleanser: I use a variety of Neutrogena salicylic acid cleansers. Once a day.

* Scrub: Sounds counter intuitive but I use it at night.  Just be super gentle.  I use st. Yves apricot acne scrub. Remember...be gentle.

*Moisturize: I always hated this and thought it made things worse...but everything i read said otherwise..so I started moisturizing. I use oil free Neutrogena moisturizer.

*Benzoyl peroxide: I use 10% BP for spot treatment. Very rarely recently.  In the past i used to cake that bad boy on. Don't do that, as much as you're tempted.makes it worse.

*Pray: this is more of a personal belief, but I believe it's worked. : )

So far this has worked. This is the first time in over a decade of coming to this page that I post a suggestion instead of looking for some. Keep your head up. Things will get better.
