What has worked for me..so far anyway.

I just thought I'd share my story here since some of the info that I received to help with my acne came from here smile.gif

A brief background:

I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from acne since I was about 14 years of age. I had to go on Accutane when I was about 15. It helped a lot at that time.

As I got older, I began to get cysts. My doctor put me on Diane 35 and it helped a lot. At that point, I mostly got cysts just around the time of my period, so I figured it was hormonal.

I recently (about 2 years ago) went off of Diane 35 as I had just gotten married and we wanted to start a family. The first few months after going off of the pill, everything was fine... THEN I started breaking out in cysts like crazy!!! Mostly on my chin, jaw line. But this time it was ALL of the time, not just when I was going to get my period.

There were at least 5 or 6 cysts on my face at at time!! Just when I thought they were going down, more would crop up!!

I tried everything I could , topically, since I was trying to start a family, all of the oral meds were out.

Just recently I read about Apple Cider Vinegar. I figured I would give it a try, seeing as I had tried everything else.

Well, it seems to be working!! Since I have been on it, I have not had any cysts whatsoever!! None!

My philosophy is 'less is more'. My facial regime is simply this:

I wash my face with Glycerine soap - liquid, and then apply apple cider vinegar (half water, half ACV).

My face is still scarred with red marks , but they are fading and , for me, most imporantly...NO CYSTS! smile.gif

I'm not sure what will work for you, as I know everyone is different, but I thought I'd share my story with what worked for me.

Thanks for listening and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi there,

I put in on a cotton ball and rub in it and leave it on overnight. Then I wash it off in the morning and reapply more before I put on my makeup.

I find I can't put too much on in the morning as it stinks smile.gif
