I don't see how it could hurt to try. I've noticed my skin is much healthier in general since I started using it. You've really got not much to lose by trying, it's cheap. You don't need to buy the expensive stuff, I use the generic $2 stuff and add a dozen drops of a scented essential oil. Since your having skin problems, I would not add any essential oils at first to keep your variables to a minimum.
Hey man, if we're gonna wear uniforms man, you know let's have everybody wear something different.
