Do you have any idea what causes it? Is your skin oily or dry? Because those products have very harsh chemicals that are supposed to help dry out oil, but if your skin is dry it’ll only dry it out more and cause worse acne. 

Really though, makeup can easily cover it all. You should look up Cassandra Bankson on youtube for some inspiration there. If she can make her cystic acne look like clear skin on film, you or your makeup artist can cover some zits on your chin. Are they red? Because green concealer will work magically if so!

I’d recommend going to a dermatologist or another professional to ask their opinion on what’s the best product line for you. 

FWIW, my esthetician actually told me, “Any product you can buy at Walmart shouldn’t end up on your face.”  I don’t entirely buy it, but the sense that there are better products out there resonates with me.

Try tea tree oil. Dab a little on each night on to the zits.

I actually found my skin reacts worse to chemical face washes. And have to use all natural and hypoallergenic cleansers.

I have hormonal acne and it sucks so bad! For cysts, I leave cortizone10 on them over night and they almost always shrink. For my face in general I clean it with tea tree oil pads and they do help. 

If all fails, I found a miracle foundation that covers literally everything. It’s a life saver. It’s Marc Jacobs remarkable, it’s at sephora and really expensive but so worth it!

I use the Murad acne free starter kit from Ulta and it works wonders

Exfoiliating with sea salt helps me when I’m really broken out.  Make sure you’re always really well moisturized after you wash your face, so your skin doesn’t overproduce oil on dry skin.

JaybirdsInJackboots :   Witchhazel.   How I wish I had known about witchhazel sooner!  I have had clear skin ever since another Bee recommended it.

I recommend trying YoDerm, a subscription service. A dermatologist will do a personalized online consult based on your uploaded photos and an online questionnaire. They will write and fill a custom compounded topical prescription for your specific situation.

Neostrata oil free face wash, level 2 toner and acne clearing face cream. If you can’t get neostrata, cliniques acne care line worked well for me as well, but I needed a light moisturizer over it.

make sure you are hydrating yourself from the inside as well as the outside — drink more water!

Benzoyl Peroxide which you can get over the counter works for me.   I also have a prescriptoin for clindamycin which also works but there’s a purging period so that might make it worse.
