I used proactiv for years too and I finally stopped after I found baking soda because I finally found something that worked better! When I apply it before bed, I put it on and let it dry for about 15 minutes, then light rub my face with soft wash cloth so I get all the ‘falling off pieces’ off and only a thin layer of baking soda is left on my skin. This way it doesn’t make a mess while sleeping. For face wash, I use Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap. It has tea tree oil in it which also helps to fight breakouts. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve been looking into the oil cleansing method, and want to give it a try soon. It involves using oil to wash your face instead of soap, so it does not strip the skin of natural oils.
There are some simple home remedies that can effectively treat cystic acne. Most of the ingredients required for this treatment are readily available in most kitchens. These ingredients are effective in treating inflammation, redness as well as the pain caused by the breakouts of cystic acne.

For me, in the evening I wash my face with a warm sea salt bath, the week before my period I pat my face down with a product from Canada called, “Nature’s Aid”. Then I apply a bunch of oils mixed together; Bottle one: avocado oil, vitamin E, a wee bit of castor oil, grapefruit essential oil, cedar essential oil and massage this well into my face. Bottle two: olive oil, castor oil, vitamin E oil, lavender and geranium essential oils.

Hi, so I’ve been struggling with acne since forever and I’ve tried so many things and wasted so much money trying to get rid of it. However, nothing seems to work for very long. It seems as though my skin only temporarily accepts the remedy, then harshly rejects it a few days later. Sometimes it gets so bad that my skin dries out or becomes too oily, which I then go onto another new and different solution. I’ve talked to a doctor, but they weren’t much help either. Please, if anyone can help me, I would be welcome to it.
Mix into a fine gloopy paste, spread over face, leave it on for half an hour, gently rub/wash off, then moisturise. I do this daily. lemon juice is fading my old scars and discolouration, the honey soothes my dry bits and fights bacteria and the sandalwood exfoliates and tones as it’s astringent (and I really like the smell, if you don’t like it I think rose water would be a good substitute!)
taking away dairy product may not always be a good ideal either. unless you want to consider taking calcium pills and probiotices for the lack of active cultures in from your yogurt, which help you fight off fungus and/or provent them.
If you happen to have Aloe Vera plants at your home (or know where to get some), then you’ve already got yourself a super powerful treatment for clearing acne. If you don’t have the plant, well, then a simple aloe vera lotion should suffice. This acne treatment is done simply by rubbing the plant (or the lotion/cream) directly onto the skin.
The major symptoms and signs of cystic acne include red tender, elevated soft bumps on the face, chest, and/or back. Some of these may be surmounted by one or more pustules. Generally, such lesions are tender and painful.
Tea tree oil. Gels containing at least 5 percent tea tree oil may be as effective as lotions containing 5 percent benzoyl peroxide, although tea tree oil might work more slowly. Possible side effects include minor itching, burning, redness and dryness. Tea tree oil should be used only topically.
A scientific review of the efficacy, tolerability and potential modes of action in regard to the treatment of acne with tea tree oil states that tea tree products reduce lesion numbers in patients with acne, have tolerability levels that are similar to other topical treatments, and have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities that are associated with the treatment of acne.

Lucy Hale knows the struggle. In an interview with Byrdie.com, the Pretty Little Liars actress talked about her ongoing battle with cystic acne. Hale’s skin troubles didn’t start until well after puberty: “The day I turned 21, my skin just went nuts,” she said. But breaking out as an adult isn’t uncommon. According to a study published in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, 54% of women over 25 have facial acne.
Right, this is a simple tip, my grandma told me about; add 15ml of olive oil and two tablespoons of rock salt to a bowl, mix well, but be careful not to grind the salt down, apply this mixture with a cotton ball and leave for 10-15 mins, this should leave acne redness severly reduced and leave skin feeling rejuvinated x
