  1. My acne gets worse with Salicylic acid. I just ordered the Acne.org products because what im using from the derm isn't working ;( Thanks! Have you tried salicylic acid based products? I had a hormone imbalance problem about a year ago and had similar breakouts on my cheeks & chin. A salicylic acid wash really helped, and niacinamide cream helped fade the left over marks. I also use benzoyl peroxide only at night and that has helped SO much. My skin did look worse before it got bet

  6. Hey everyone. I went to the derm. today and got a 25mg of Spironolactone and a prescription face wash. I am a little nervous to take the spironolactone, I didn't know it was a blood pressure med. I was told this wouldn't mess with me but I am kind of wigged out. Also, when I take this is there anything I should expect? If I stop taking it is it just going to come back if it works? I have so many questions! Please, if you have been on this please let me know how it is for you / any
