Thank you to everyone who recommended the ACV or vitamin c to help with cystic acne. Here is my story. I’ve been suffering with bad cystic acne for the last 3-4 months and have spent much time trying to figure out what was causing it and how to fix it. I thought it was my Adderall causing it, but when I quit taking it, I was still breaking out, just at a slower rate. I finally based it down to hormonal changes caused by going off of birth control after having been on it for over 8 years, but adderall does seem to severly compound the problem, so for those with cystic acne that are taking that, it’s something to think about. I graduated this December and didn’t want to go to graduation with this horrible painful acne. I couldn’t even get pictures done because of it. I found this site about a week before my graduation and started on a regimen of ACV and vitamin c to see if I could get the praiseworthy results so many have boasted on this site. I had little faith but it was worth a shot. Like many others have said, when you’re desperate and you’ve tried everything else, you’re willing to try just about anything that might have a chance of working. On the site, people seemed to recommend either the ACV or the vitamin c, so I decided to try the two together to see if I could get results fast! After just one night of using the ACV I woke up to better skin. The new huge cyst I had forming had been significantly reduced and the pain was gone, and my face as a whole looked better. My other scars, cysts and acne were reduced, less red, and my skin really did look brighter just as someone else on here had said. I was amazed. I have since continued on my regimen and now my face is almost completely clear. And it’s only been a little over a week! Now that’s what I call results!
You should try the yogurt mask and the ingredients are: 2 tablespoons of oat meal, 3 tablespoons of bio yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of water, mix them together and apply to the face, Leave it for 15-20 mins and be sure to put a thick layer on the pimples.
Because back acne can be tough to shake, it’s important to use a product that contains acne-fighting ingredients. BioClarity contains the highest allowable grade of salicylic acid, a proven acne fighter that penetrates deep into pores.
Ive tried egg white & didn’t work. Then i tried using honey & oats mask & i believe it only made it worse. My acne is worse & all over my face 🙁 my skin is very oily so ive always had acne but nothing like now. It all got worse when i got pregnant my face was horrible & because of that i eben have scars 🙁 idk what to try anymore o feel so imsecure im even embarrassed with my husband my self steem is very low. My son is now 5 months and im still having trouble with acne like a month ago it seemed lime ot was finally clearing up but NO! & now its just really bad again. Can my acne be hormonal? What can i do?
Well I’m 19yrs old and I always had pimples but nothing serious till about a year ago. I’ve gone to the dermatoligist and had many acne treatments which sort of work after spending over 1000 dollars I’ve realized that its better to get prescribed pills I haven’t tried it but due to my experience its my next plan. I’ve tried a laser treatment for my scars and I strongly advise it! Although it didn’t completley clear my scars it made a huge improvement. I use proactive not the bessst but I’ve been using it since the age of 14. I also use aloe vera the plant cut a couple pieces and rub the gel over my face this takes a few weeks to show improvement but it works and helps with irritation. I sometimes rub on eggs whites mixed with sugar.I also take omega 3 fish oil pills which is good for the skin. You can get this anywhere shoprite pathmark.. I don’t eat healthy which I’m working on! Girls don’t wear makeup all the time! Try and let the skin breathe! Mosturizing is a must! I want to add that acne is something I wish didn’t exsist because no one deserves it .. I hope we can all get through this and gain our confidence back! Just know there’s someone else going through this with you! Xoxo 🙂
Most of the time, the glands make the right amount of sebum and the pores are fine. But sometimes a pore gets clogged up with too much sebum, dead skin cells, and germs called bacteria. This can cause acne.
I’ve tried putting egg on my face. I use both the yoke and the white and wear it as a mask. My husband thought I was a little crazy at first, but it genuinely works. It helps reduce redness and some of the pain. Recently I broke down and got an “acne facial” at a local spa. It was incredible, my face is looking better each day. I highly recommend this for being struggling with acne.

One of the reasons that bacne happens is because we’re busy being so awesome and healthy working up a sweat! “Breakouts on the back and body can be exacerbated by working out or sweating more,” explains skin expert Renée Rouleau. Whenever possible, shower right after exercising to help remove sweat that may be irritating the skin and causing clogged pores on your back.
Honey is also a proven natural acne remedy. You can put it on the face directly or you can mix it with other remedies such as lemon juice or sandal wood. The vegetables and fruits such as tomato, carrot, cucumber, and orange have also used as packs on the skin. Steaming and massaging is recommended as part of the remedy treatment. Now, as a result of the increased popularity of the natural remedies, many beauty centers offer them.

Consume More Greens – Organic, green, leafy vegetables contain the antioxidants necessary to fight acne and maintain healthy, glowing skin. Additionally, they help promote alkalinity in the body (especially when eaten raw). Drinking a dehydrated organic green drink or preparing organic green smoothies in a blender is a fantastic way to get the recommended amount of these vegetables into your daily diet to alkalize, detoxify and promote clear skin.
Hormonal activity, such as occurs during menstrual cycles and puberty, may contribute to the formation of acne. During puberty, an increase in sex hormones called androgens causes the skin follicle glands to grow larger and make more oily sebum. Several hormones have been linked to acne, including the androgens testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA); high levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) have also been associated with worsened acne. Both androgens and IGF-1 seem to be essential for acne to occur, as acne does not develop in individuals with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) or Laron syndrome (insensitivity to GH, resulting in very low IGF-1 levels).
Do NOT use rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover ever! It will dry out your skin not in the good way, it will strip the good oils your skin needs and make you break out and scar more. As far as a facial scrub, exfoliation is important stay away from Apricot scrubs as they contain walnut shells that will tear and rip your skin, invest a little bit in a good exfoliant. I use orogold which is amazing aveda also is good. Wear sun screen!
It sounds like something you’d find in a science lab, but this natural mineral can get you closer to clear skin thanks to its antibacterial properties. While it may make your face smell a bit like rotten eggs (the things we do for beauty…), it stifles acne-causing bacteria and unclogs pores. Polisky suggests applying a sulfur-containing mask, like Sublime Beauty Oil Control Sulfur Mask ($30, sublimebeautyshop.com), for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off to decrease the bacteria count in your skin. Sulfur can be drying, however, so follow your treatment with a healthy dose of your favorite moisturizer.
Like hair products, makeup and skin care products contain ingredients that can cause acne. Common offenders include lanolin, mineral oil, aluminum, retinyl acetate, alcohol, oxybenzone, triclosan, parabens, polyethylene, BHA and BHT, and formaldehyde-based preservatives. Read ingredient labels to avoid putting these types of chemicals on your sensitive skin.
First slice a peice of lime and give it a little squeeze so its juice comes a little out. rub the slice so that the juices get on ur acne. it may feel a little irratating but that ok. i suggest if u have long hair tie it up so it wont get in ur way, so once its been applyed. do this everynight on every sign u see of acne before u go to sleep. when u wake up wsh ur face, the redness should have been reduced and the size too. ur pimple will disapear in a matter of days. remember everynight to prevent it and to get rid of it, hope this helps!
so i wanna ask, is this really safe or anyone can help me by telling other natural remedies that is really really suitable for a skin that is really sensitive and just oily and my age is 16. i know some will say its hormone or other, but i really really really want to solve my acne probs. please anyone. i really appreciate.
