Ok....I dunno if anyone cares really but....here goes. I am a 28 year old female who NEVER had acne as a teen then suddenly 2 1/2 years ago when I was pregnant with my son my skin had a nervous breakdown of some sort. It started out as ramdom breakouts and now has literally turned to random cystic type breakouts. I've tried literally EVERYTHING...over the counter topical medications, antibiotics and topical creams from the dermatologist, everything. Nothing has worked. I had a series of microdermabrasion treatments after the birth of my son which seemed to help calm my skin slightly but did not prevent future breakouts.
So, recently while visiting with my grandmother (who seems to know everything about everything) she recommended that I try cleaning my skin with Grandpa's Sulfur Soap and applying a mask of some herbal stuff called Black Salve (not the bloodroot type) twice a day. So..... after a trip with her to the Health Food store and about $12 spent I began her regimin.
It has been two weeks and I can honestly say my skin is BRAND NEW. I can't believe it myself but it worked. I clean my face in the morning and evening with the Grandpa's and dab on the black salve(which smells horrible and looks disgusting) to any areas with a breakout, I leave the black stuff on for atleast 30 minutes (she says overnight, but that stuff stains and is really sticky). I apply a moisturizer after rinsing the black salve off each time. I have not had a new breakout in a week and my skin feels so soft and the scars and red spots are disappearing amazingly. No black heads or anything.
I just wanted to share my story with you guys because I know I have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on professional and over the counter products with no help!!
