    Figure out what triggers your acne, could be dairy, sugars, trans-fats. In addition to figuring out a trigger, try out 15-30mg of quality zinc per day. Topicals never worked for me and I am a firm believer in diet and lifestyle impacting the inflammatory cascade that leads to acne.

    1000mg of Pantothenic acid really worked great for me whenever I ran a cycle. Cheap as well .

    Wash your face and hands frequently. If its an infection of acne you need some cleansing and medicine. A good "lotion" would be Zenerit you can apply that to your whole face except nose mouth and eyes obviously and it will reduce inflammation almost instantly. There is another "gel" called Basiron AC it's for local use. Acne is a little more complicated than what u think. You can't go in battling acne with broscience.

    I had terrible acne and scars. Got rid of most of it without having to make major diet changes.

    As posted above b-5(pantothenic acid). Works great. Not sure if poster ment to say 1 g or 10g. Cause I would start at 10g then cruise at 5g once acne started to clear. Also tanning/sunlight seems to always help me. I always have r acne in winter.

    I heard you can mix the white powder and the brown powder, heat them up and shoot them together. You can do a whole 14cubes of that ****....

    Go to a doc and get some blood work. Lol most of my Backne and acne disappeared after my 1st blood transfusion. Then I had a bite on my face, went at it with dirty hands and made another infection. Had another transfusion and I used Basiron AC and Zenerit and no acne.

    AND I run Oxandrolone 85mg still no acne.

    Greatly helped with the scars. I had terrible childhood acne and when I went into the army it got worse because of the hygiene. Basically if you had ****ed up zits like I you need natural soap made out of fat (in Russia we call it ????????????? ???? "owners soup") to wash your face with for a time being. Then you need a healing ointment called ArgoSulfan it's the ****. Then Zenerit and Basiron AC. How? It just did.

    Try a wash with tea tree oil in it - it has helped me in the past. I recommend Fungasoap - sounds gross but it works.

    If your acne is really bad go to a dermatologist, accutane really helped my acne problem. The only sides I had was dry lips and weirdly acne, it gets worse before it gets better. Also if you don't like the idea of accutane they have other topical that help.

    Green Pasture's Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend - CINNAMON GEL taken daily. Works very well! You can read about it by googling Fermented Cod liver oil and acne.

    I would suggest Acnedren by Black Lion Research. It's safe and quite effective. I tried high doses of vitamin b5 but found myself running to the bathroom all day! Lol
    Look into Acnedren and the feedback on it. The only con (I think) is the price is a little high but I guess when you compare it to all the creams and washes you purchase it actually comes out cheaper.

    Good luck!

    Skip dairy products
    add 30mg zinc daily
    drink lots of water
    sleep more
    dont touch your face that much if you can
    mix some water+apple cider vinegar and spray on the acne (kills bacteria ect)
