    Day 1

    Yesterday I started my new skin care plan. In the morning I put raw honey on my face and let it sit for like three minutes. I then take a hot wash cloth and lay it on my face then wash the honey off. I found that this leaves my face feeling great. It feels soft and not oily at all which is surprising for me because I have really oily skin. After all the honey is off my skin, I pat my face dry and apply my apple cider vinegar toner. At night I did the oil cleansing method with grapeseed o
  2. I was considering posting daily pictures but I thought it would be more effective if I shared them weekly- that way if there's any form of improvement it'll probably be more noticeable. Besides, there's probably only so many shots of my flaky, red chin that a human can handle! I'm not going to photograph the acne on my forehead either because the pimples are small, closed comedones, which I can deal with in comparison to my hot mess of a jawline! Yesterday evening I came home to see that th
  3. I really believe low stomach acid and vitamin + mineral deficiencies are a serious part of acne. I have been doing the oxy powder cleanse and getting liquid stools. I have far less bloating since doing these supplements. I took chromium with my baked beans, which would probably normally spike my blood sugar. But I also took ACV, cause I haven't received my HCL pills. My skin was clearing up a little, except for these weird deep bumps on my left jaw/cheek. I was craving them. Been really cr
  4. I am happy to report that since my last post I have had no MAJOR picking sessions...I am still breaking out all on my forehead and have been compelled to do some damage control but overall I've not felt the need to lock myself in the house for the next week whilst it settles down...huh in fairness I did go to town on a spot on the side of my head and it's very red, very scabby and hard to cover, which makes me realise that I'm more affected by my acne depending on where it is on my face...if the
  5. Okay so I just signed up on acne.org to make myself feel better and get some advice on this tragic thing i did for my face, because I really feel like trash right now. So last week. I was looking at the mirror, close up, at my blemishes. I have this problem where I will start picking at the smallest thing on my face because im so afraid of pimples. I pick on three pimples on my cheek. All got inflamed. Throughout the week i tried putting mask, benzoyl peroxide, baking soda, etc. Two of them went
  6. Help! I misused apple cider vinegar while treating an acne spot, and now I have what might possibly be a burn on my skin from it. The skin around the (now dried out) pimple is very dark, red, and somewhat raised and rough to touch. I now realize I didn't dilute the vinegar enough and left it on my skin for too long. What is the best recommended treatment for this? How do I heal the skin and reduce the redness from the burn quickly?
  7. Lets begin with my history I had two hypertrophic scars on my nose for about 4 years, and i tried everything to get rid of them without sucess (includes co2 laser, steroid injections, cortisone creams, etc..) All i can say about those scars is that they look like a sebaceous hyperplasia, and completely destroyed my self-esteem for about 4 years, i wish i can had photos to show to the skeptical people the results but ill share the regimen anyway in case i can give some light for any desperate
  8. I've been fighting acne for 4 years now. I started on Proactiv like everybody else, and it worked- for 9 months. Then my acne got progressively worse and worse. My derm put me on differin (did nothing), benzoil peroxide products (nada), and tazorac. I stuck with taz for about a year. It didn't seem to help, but didn't seem to hurt it either. I used to use benzaclin to spot treat, and it worked when I was younger, before any of this major breakout stuff happened. I read about holistic treatmen
  9. I recently tried to remove a facial mole using apple cider vinegar. For 2 days I put a connton ball with the vinegar on the mile for about half an hour. After the second time, I noticed a facial burn around the mile. I let it sit for 2 days until is scabbed up as seen in the picture. I was wondering what I should do to prevent scarring, should I apply something or pick the rough film of skin off? Also, how can I use apple cider vinegar on the mile so it won't burn my face in the future?
  10. New blog so I can post photos! Duh! For your reference... this is me: Meet Natalie! Today at work...I'm dead. I'm so sleep deprived I have no idea how I'm still functioning. I ate and I feel sick. It's about 4pm. I'm ready to go home and sleep. I had to start this blog because my other one ran out of MB??? I don't even know. Ain't nothin' changed...Drinkin' tea...Workin'...YOU already KNOOOOW. photos with my hair down are last night and today with my hair up at work looking like death hah
  11. Morning: Wash with African Black Soap Glycerin and Water moisturizer Drink glass of 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar with a glass of water Evening: Wash with African Black Soap Neo-Medrol Topical (every other day because too drying otherwise) Glycerin and Water moisturizer Drink glass of 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar with a glass of water Sundays: Honey mask for 30 mins Wednesdays: Sugar Coffee scrub I may start doing an Apple Cider Vinegar toner, but lets see how the glycerin goes
  12. Ughhhh. Late again. I’ve been feeling very fatigued and between that, being busy and just having general craziness in life, this blog hasn’t been a huge priority. The biggest grief I’ve had this week has been the stupid cold sore I got last week and tried vehemently to get it to go away. I put apple cider vinegar on it almost every hour, I’ve kept it moist with Aquaphor and Vaseline, I’ve put a liquid bandage on it, the list goes on… but I think it’s finally beginning to go away. I think m

    Start Of Success?

    So I can't tell if the new regimen is actually working or if I'm just imagining things! It's way too early to decide either way yet but I'm feeling a little more optimistic than usual so I'm quite happy to go along with it even if it is just the placebo effect. In terms of breakouts (touch wood) I've had one very insignificant-not worth picking spot and had an already-formed clogged pore dry up which I scratched off and then upon inspection saw the little plug which I managed to GENTLY squeeze o
  14. I am 23 years old and I have been SUFFERING from cystic acne since I was 12. My acne would occasionally get better or worse throughout the years but it was something I just dealt with. I had gone to the dermatologist many times and have been prescribed antibiotics and topicals that may or may not have help but ultimately nothing ever took really got rid of my acne. So I just wore makeup every day and got accustomed to that life. Yes, it has always been hard on me and I've always had horrible c
  15. From the album: AFRICAN BLACK SOAP WORKS

    African Black Soap morning, afternoon and night time ACV, water and tea tree oil toner Aloe Vera moisturizer oh. my. god. so. happy.
  16. So basically i have this deep pimple. It doesn't have a head but i can see the white pus (?) inside it. So from hours of searching online i saw that putting ACV on a cotton ball and putting it on it would make it better. It didn't. I had this cotton ball on my face for hours (maybe 8) and when i took it off my skin was very white and tender. It peeled off. I don't know, maybe i did something wrong. But i can't stop crying now. I have depression and this have affected me very deeply. Everything i
  17. Ive had this cyst on my face for a couple months, its a shiny, smooth, flesh colored bump on my face. But recently in the last 2 months it got bigger and its really annoying. Ive been applying BP to it for months but no progress. Ive just recently bought a bottle of Bragg's ACV unfiltered, unpasteurized, raw and mixed with some water and applied it to my cyst for the past week and now its somewhat flatter and smoother and also turned dark!? Does this mean its working? Or is this a chemical burn?
  18. hello everyone someone please answer im begging you. I have college orientation in 6 days and I had two small pimples that I treated with tea tree oil and ACV and then I woke up and it had burned my skin and the pimples didn't even go away. the skin got brown and peeled off and left two raw skin wounds I NEED HELP AND I NEED ALL YOUR BEST REMEDIES. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO RESPOND IM DESPERATE.
  19. I feel like I have to share what I've found after years of struggling with my skin. I struggled with acne all through high school and college and when I turned 22 it became constant cystic mostly on cheeks and chin. I also am a face picker so scabs and scars where a huge issue. The only thing that made a small difference was doxycycline but due to my picking my face still looked horrible.Out of desperation I started using coconut oil. My skin is combination with a oily t zone, dry everywhere els
  20. I am 23 year old slim white English male. This is my first very post on this acne forum so I have yet to share my personal experience about about why I am here. Before I decide to go about that, I feel a positive thing is to share my experience with acne and how I cleared it up so well. So I will just clarify, at that in this point in time my acne is the best it has ever been since before I even started getting it. I am really happy with how my overall skin looks. So here it goes. I used to th
  21. I really don't know what to do with my skin anymore. It all started Nov. 2017, when I woke up with like a hundred tiny bumps on my forehead. I've always had mild to moderate acne but it was nothing like this. They would also become inflamed and they have pus!! I never had anything like this before. I thought it was because I added too many things on my skin care routine. I started using Sensibio Micellar Water, Thayers astringent, jojoba oil for moisturizer, and tea tree oil for spot treatment.
  22. People were telling me how apple cider vinegar could really help with my skin issues if I rubbed some on my face as a toner. So that's what I did; I put some on a cotton pad and rubbed it on my face. It burned a little but I didn't really think about that at the time. I wake up the next morning and my skin is literally red. Almost like it's been burnt, just raw and red. It's been two days and it's not dying down. Help!! What do I do???? Will it scar? How do I heal my skin?? Would aloe Vera help?
  23. http://imgur.com/a/SAhcb I have an indented scar.. from a wart (i used apple cider vinegar to kill the wart), after it healed (had to remove the black scab which was the dead wart) it became a pink indented plastic surface scar.. just curious what method or is it even possible for it to heal back to normal skin color.. sorry for poor quality picture, was the best i could capture (it's on my face). Thanks! P.S. Would apple cider vinegar or lemon do the trick?
  24. I decided to stop using all commercial cleansers and products on my face, after watching videos/testimonials and reading lots of information on acne. I've used the oil cleansing method, cold cream, caveman, ext. Half a year later - nothing. My acne/rosecea is the worst it's ever been. There could be no correlation, but the point is, it's not working. My skin was much clearer in around, August. I used to use CeraVe gentle cleanser, and Cetaphil moisturizer. I'm out of options. I've tried ev
  25. hi, I'm 17 yrs old. I started getting acne in my 10th grade and i was 15 that time. I still have acne and I just dont know what products to try anymore, it's depressing that sometimes I would not even go to school just to hide my face from everyone. So, I have super oily skin and moderate acne and some whiteheads there and there. I've heard a lot of positive things about using braggs apple cider vinegar and so I decided to try it, i diluted it in 50 50 water and acv and apply it on my
