Many doctors DON'T recommend this at all (So please keep it safe kids), but as soon as I started working as a lifeguard (and I'm talking about working 12 hour shifts!!!) my skin started clearing up dramatically! And it did so for the whole time I was working there. I mean, I did get a couple little breakouts here and there but it was nothing major. BTW please don't mind the glasses. The Nichole Richie oversized glasses trend was in at the time LOL!
