  1. Hey guys, I am currently SOOO frustrated. Here is some background: I never used to have acne not even as a teenager, im talking not even one pimpleeee (knock on wood). I had a pretty bad diet in college and I STILL didnt break out. I never even thought about acne lol I used to be happy haha Anyway, I started law school this year and idk if it's the stress or what not, I BREAK OUT LIKE CRAZY on my cheeks and chin. like my skin is so bumpy and frustrated. It is dry and flaky and large pores. It

  3. 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?
  4. I posted this somewhere else too but figured I should add this to my pre-accutane updates. The bumps on my face have been bugging me SO much! So I read that vinegar can be helpful with folliculitis and other noninflamed acne and I also saw a lot of posts about baking soda and apple cider vinegar on your face. Decided to give it a go. After 2 days I'm seeing the bumps go WAY down and some that weren't budging for what felt like ages have finally come to a head. I simply added some ba
  5. okay so i diluted white distilled vinegar with some water and dabbed it on my forehead w a cotton ball (idk probably bc google said its good for acne) and it ended up just leaving little scars and scabs on my pimples. i also had comedones that were burned and now are red and scabby. now my face is all red, inflamed, and scarred. heeellppp!!
  6. I used apple cider vinegar to try and remove a facial mole, but now I feel like a complete idiot. I applied it using a cotton swap for an hour 3 days in a row until I gave up on it. After a couple days, the was redness / bleeding around the mole so I applied Neosporin and a bandage. Now 2 days later, some dead skin fell off revealing a red area. I'm afraid this might be a scar and was wondering if anyone else had this situation. I'm considering going to a dermatologist to get it removed correctl
  7. Hey guys, first time posting. My acne is under control right now, what has been bugging me is the 6 or so small bump-like scars I have on my nose. Are they Hyperthropic? What would be the best treatment? As far as I know, a chemical peel and or the vinegar approach will help? Looking for any advice (The picture is not very clear, but you can see 3 or 4 of the bumps)
  8. Basically, I'm burnīng it off with sōme acid. FYI Bandaids If I do bandaids, they only last up to 1 day on the wound. Quit being professional, ans Keep it 100 I used Heinz Distilled white vinegar, n like a total of 9 or so q-tips. I dipped one end of one in, and soaked the scar repeatedly for a couple of minutes. Then I started wetting it with one end, then rubbing it in with the other end repeatedly for what might have been 10-15 minutes or so. I'd rub it with the wet end a bit, as w
  9. Hi there. I am 34 and have dealt with acne for more than half my life. I have used almost every conventional medicine under the sun, including Accutane (one full course and three weeks of a second course). None of these drugs has ever dealt with the condition to my satisfaction, so I have been recently looking into a more natural/holistic solution. I have been eating paleo for the last 10 days or so, and I thought I'd try drinking a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with water last night. I

    Day 13

    Its been 13 days in benzac.. And amazingly my pimples stopped growing at their rate. My face is dry though. Especially at my neck. I have 4 pimples at the jawline area.. I put petroleum jelly so that it wont dry so much... I use petroleum jelly because i cant seem to find a moisturizer that is approved with the acne.org list of ingredients.. This is just my first aid for this problem because my acne.org regimen is still somewhere. When will they deliver it!! Anyway as a first aid the thi
  11. Hello I recently tried a Liver Flush to clear my acne, but unfortunately couldn't keep down the Olive Oil and so failed. I'm really upset because after reading about it, I'm convinced this would clear my acne. So I'm trying to find an alternative to the Liver Flush (a liver flush removes, sludge & gallstones from the liver & gallbladder - vastly improving digestion and organ function which is the basis of health and therefore clear skin) At the moment, I've just placed so
  12. So i removed a facial mole using apple cider vinegar on a cotton swab about 5 months ago. At firest it left a red crater, but now there is not much of a crater, but a pinkish area where the mole was removed. Does anyone know if this area will be permanent? Ive been told by someone else who had done a similar thing that his eventually faded and became unoticable, but im not sure whether or not this will scar. Should i be applying moisterizer to it or leave it as be? Thank you.
  13. Hey! Diamond here, I'm a new user. Here's a little background of me. I'm a male, 17 years old, about 5 foot 10, weigh 129 and have had pesty acne since 8th grade. Before I ask for any help, let me give you a quick rundown of my skin care routine and diet. In the morning, I wash with a Christina Moss Naturals organic face wash and follow that up with an aloe vera based organic and non comedogenic mouisturizer. I don't wash again until I get home from school, and only with water. I follow the ri
  14. I've heard that apple cider vinegar is great for acne and scars, and started using it. However, I've seen a few people talk about how their skin purged or broke out more, which is something that I really can't have happen because my acne is worse than ever at the moment. My face looks nothing like my profile pic right now; my breakout is so bad that makeup can barely cover it. I want to use vinegar again but I'm scared of the purging, does it always happen ?
  15. Hello everyone. I praise for your suggestions on my case. I am female, 34 years and i am back to hormonal acne after 7 years of clear face. In my early 20's i had irregular cycles, pcos and all that comes along. I was perscribed birth control pill and i got clear quickly ( good skin genes!). After about a year acne returned and it was severe. My gynecologist prescribed me again with the same pill. I took it for three constant years, no side effects at all, but after 3years i had eye problems. My
