I've had it before, but thank God it was never like too bad all at once. I would get those huge, hard, boil like pimples on my period for years & it was so painful and humiliating! I have learned so many ways to fix it over the years though. I never ever had a single bump on my jaws/cheeks until last year. Tanning caused me to have a few and I was not happy. It scarred a little and I've gotten them to fade pretty well though.
For those painful pimples, make a paste out of epsom salt & a tiny drop of water. Remember, you want it to be as thick of a paste as possible so that means more salt, less water. Cover the pimple heavily with it and leave overnight. It should start healing by the nest morning. Also, it works best if the pimple has been opened. A light squeeze will do the trick. As a teen, nature's cure (buy at drugstores like walmart) worked very well for the teen, moderate acne.
I've got tons of fixes that I write about on my blog. I've tried the vitamin E oil capsules on some inflamed bumps and gotten pretty good results.
I also created my own concoction of acne fix several years ago. I mixed 5 drops of PURE tea tree oil. (Has to be 100% pure!) and a crushed up multi vitamin, a crushed up aspirin (usually just a half of the multi vit. crushed, but I like to use the full aspirin so it works better) the aspirin helps reduce redness & inflammation. Then add a bit of sea salt & if you want, a few squirts of orange or lemon juice, pineapple juice works too! You don't neccessarily HAVE to have each of those just to get results. For the lemon and orange juice, I usually just take the peel from a lemon/orange and bend it in half over and over in diff. areas so that the oils squirt out into a container or directly onto the face. I often just use that alone and leave it on my fave overnight for a nice, freshy glow and tightened pores.
I really like all of better botanicals products (you can find online) I've tried all of their hair care, Jojoba face mask is my absolute fav! It works freakin wonders! The juniper toning mist is nice, but for a good exfoliant and pimple reducer, pore tightener, the jojoba mask works best. I've tried almost all their skin care and I love them!
I know everyone's heard it before, but drinking a few bottles of water a day can work well! I can't always do it as it upsets my stomach issues when I drink a whole lot, but mixing it with mio water flavor works amazingly well when I need a serious skin fix. I also take aloe vera pills which will usually clear any and all acne. I also take coconut oil which is a big help, but the coconut oil recently made me sick since I'm new to it and took too much.
Sorry for the long advice! Lol. I hope this will be helpful to some of you who have suffered from acne like I have.
