    Oh man…where do I even begin? I struggled with acne for YEARS. And it wasn’t like the “oh, I have a tiny pimple here and there” type acne, it was like BAM, ACNE. I dealt with it all, but as I got to high school and college, it became worse. After I graduated college and started working full time in PR, I noticed it was the worst it had ever been. I’ll blame stress for that! Eventually, I decided I’d had enough and talked to my dermatologist about Amnesteem, a generic form of Accutane. I was nervous to begin the treatment because of the potential side effects, but it worked SO well. I’ve been off of it for two years and my skin is completely clear! Best decision ever!

      P.S. – I should mention that while my skin is mostly clear now, I do still get little bumps from time to time, but NOTHING like the painful deep cystic acne I used to get. I still have some scarring, but I’m so happy those days are behind me! Anyone dealing with acne knows it really messes with your confidence.

    I also can’t believe that I’m 28 and still dealing with acne on a daily basis! ….and seeing the fact that my mom is too, it looks like it will be a long road ahead. I find that my ache tends to be hormonal and centered around my chin and jawline, but having a consistent washing schedule definitely helps.

    Love the idea of ice, can’t wait to try it. Will any honey work as an anti-bacteria, or only Manuka honey?

    Thanks for all of your great articles!

      I’m 28 too, and have similar sounding issues. I feel like I’m trying to defend from wrinkles with one hand and keep the acne down with the other (although having oily skin can help with delaying wrinkles)

      I use a honey mask weekly but I find it doesn’t harm or help the acne, but it does keep my skin hydrated and soft, which I think helps keep the dead skin cells out of my pores, causing the smaller bumps.

    Would love a sample of this! I am twenty-four and I have a one-year old and totally thought by the time I was this age (and a mom) I would have no acne, yet here we are. If possible, my skin may be even worse than it was in high school, which attribute to my wacky hormones as a new mom. I am always looking for new products to help me banish the pimples for good! would love the chance to try this one!

    This is perfect. Who knew in our upper 20s we would still need solutions for acne. I never had acne in high school and now its catching up to me. Thanks for the post!

    Yesss, I’ve found my regular routine that keeps the little ones at bay but I get those blind pimples (red guys) like you’re tlaking about. I hate when they sit around waiting to come up but I find products with sulpher help draw it to the surface. Then I hit it with Benzol, though I’ve never heard of Zapzyt. Could be great!

    I was literally just thinking about this yesterday! I had bad acne in high school, it went away in college, and it came BACK now as an adult. How does that even happen? Great tips, as always. :)

    I think the same thing! I’ll be 27 in August and can’t understand why it hasn’t magically cleared up yet!
