  1. Eating yogurt is great for your acne. I recently started applying plain yogurt on my face as a mask every other day as advised by a dear friend of mine who is a fellow acne sufferer. This is an old trick her grandmother taught her to help soothe her acne. The live cultures are not only good for your skin from the inside, but do wonders for redness, irritation, inflammation, and general healing when applied directly to the skin. I use it along with Dan's regimen after cleansing and before BP crea
  2. Oh yeah! Maybe not after it dries, but one time I dripped some of my BP cream (10%) onto my green t shirt and it left a bleached spot. It probably also depends on the strength. Just be cautious when using it and wash your hands after applying it.

Within 24 hours of not using it my skin already looks and feels much better. If and when you stop using
  6. I suffer from cystic acne as well. I am new to this forum. One thing that really helps with redness is to use plain (no sweetener or flavor) yogurt as a face mask. Just spread in on and leave it for 10 or 15 minutes. I do this almost everyday and it really helps irritation and redness.
