I had the most beautiful skin upuntil I turned 18 and then it turned into a festering pot of cystic acne. They used to hurt... alot!
I am now 27 and it that 10 years I tried natural therapies, Ro-accutane (super duper but evil anti-biotics), over the counter products, etc.
I tried Proactiv and it worked for me, really well. I have been using it now constantly for 18 months. But I do agree also with Dolly in the hormone balance area, it has alot to do with it! I am older now and had a baby 18 months ago. And we are all individuals, our bodies are so different. I say trial and error. I also had that that Implanon thing and turned into some crazed women. Had it removed after 6 months.
I know how you feel when you see those evil bumps on your face, I understand completely, here when you need a chat.
