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!
Maintain a simple, calming skin care routine that avoids heavy and scented moisturizers. Before applying moisturizer daily, always make sure that your skin is thoroughly exfoliated and clean. An oil-free and unscented moisturizer is a great choice.
well i gots some tips for you but remember everyones skin is different so if rashes appear or your acne gets worse you might be having an allergic reaction to it. well first off if you have long bangs or hair thats always in your face put it up or tie it back cuz my hair was always in me face and i started 2 break out REAL bad and my mom tol me 2 tie it up and that acne went down a little 2 scars. 2 treat the scarz i wash my face with salt water 2-3 times a day for 3weeks and lemon with rosewater 3 times a day for 2 weeks. IT ACTUALLY WORKS.
Now I walk with confidence instead of hiding my face from the world. Funny enough, people compliment me on my skin more than ever. I think it has something to do with the confidence and beauty I have within radiating through my skin. I’m happy with the way my skin is today. I feel beautiful, confident and dare I say content.
Acne is a skin condition that shows up as different types of bumps. They include whiteheads, blackheads, red bumps (pimples), and bumps that are filled with pus (called pustules). What causes these annoying bumps? Well, your skin is covered with tiny holes called hair follicles, or pores. Pores contain sebaceous (say: suh-BAY-shus) glands (also called oil glands) that make sebum (say: SEE-bum), an oil that moistens your hair and skin.
Drinking lots of water, washing your face with a gentle soap and warm water, and avoiding foods high in cream, fat grease, etc will have your acne infested skin clear in no time. I agree accutane is to be avoided. I was on it for several months and while it did clear things up sometimes I wonder what long term health problems it may cause me later in life.
Thanks for the above post. I’m on the second day of using baking soda mask. But I’m using it only for 30 mins daily. I have more breakouts now than before. Is it normal? I have black scars as well. Does baking soda mask removes black scars on the face? Awaiting your response. Thanks.
Please do not pick at your acne. I’m 22 now but I once had acne in middle school. Once I got in high school I started doing the following ( for my sensative, acne prone, combo skin), I haven’t had acne since.
just used the best remedy i think i’ve ever used. It was a mixture sea salt, water, toothpaste, and oxy maximum deep cleaning face wash. start with the sea salt, put a fine amount in a cap or container. add a small amount of water and mix. then add a decent amount of tooth paste and mix. then 2 squirts of oxy face wash and mix. chill in the freezer for a little bit. remove and cover face. remove after 10 minutes.
The good news is this: many safe home remedies for cystic acne, blackheads, whiteheads, and hyperpigmentation due to acne scars are all available. Below I’m sharing my favorite natural home remedies for getting rid of pimples and keeping them from returning. If you’re someone who has chosen to use potentially dangerous prescription drugs and/or topical medications on your skin, instead of natural home remedies for acne, then know that clearing your skin naturally is possible, as is minimizing acne scars. A healthy diet, applying essential oils, proper gentle cleansing and balancing hormones are all some of the ways you can restore your skin’s health, reduce unsightly pimples or other types of irritation, and prevent scars.
Regular cardiovascular exercise can have amazing benefits for the skin, but unfortunately, working out can sometimes result in breakouts. Why? Oftentimes, back acne is a result of friction and sweat. Tight clothing worn during exercise mixed with perspiration can wreak havoc on your skin. Fortunately, you can decrease the chance of back acne by following a few simple practices.
