ACNE CURED at 39! NO SH**! in Adult acne Posted October 4, 2009 Just another weekly update from me.So as of today I'm 100% clear, but I did breakout really bad on Wednesday. When I woke up that morning I had no acne, but work stressed me out so much (alot more then usual) that when I got home I saw 6 inflamed pimples. I popped the white heads out and applied some retin-a on them. I then went and got a chemical peel on Thursday. On Friday they were pretty much all gone, and on Saturday there was no sign that they were ever there, no redness or anything.So it took me only three days to completely get rid of these pimples when usually these things take 2-3 weeks to get rid of. Once again I feel it was a combination of things that I did to my face that helped clear me up not just niacin alone. Although I will say that I haven't applied any bp for the past week. I've only been washing my face with cetaphil and applying an oil controlling moisturizer while taking niacin this week.
