If you are easily grossed out, stop reading now and come back tomorrow...or the next day.
I've mentioned before about having an acne problem. I'm over 40 people, I should be done with this. I never had a problem as a teenager and I think this is the Universe's way at getting back at me. I've tried everything, but, the biggest problem is me. I think it stems from my mother insisting I remove (squeeze) blackheads off her face. I did it religiously as a kid under the assumption that with her MS she couldn't do it herself. I have never had a blackhead as a result. I would never let it get that far. My hands are constantly on my face and any "bump" gets closely examined to insure it never turns black. Enough of the gorey details. You get the idea.
Every remedy I've used insists that keeping your hands off your face is the key. I need something beyond that because I've tried, I can't do it. I googled best acne treatments and came up with a couple home remedies that use oatmeal and egg whites (two separate remedies) and think I will try those next. I will keep you posted as to what works, if either. I know I can't be the only one.
If you have other suggestions I'm open. I've tried "real" meds like ProActiv with no luck. I'm more prone to cysts than zits so any help is welcome. What do you use?
