I have struggled with severe cystic acne since i was 9 years old (now 24), and though I have went through many medications, including two rounds of accutane, it is still an issue, albeit not near as bad as in my younger days. Since I have started wet-shaving, I have noticed my skin around my neck and cheeks getting a lot better. I believe this is due to the razors ability to get BBS resulting in me needing to shave less often, as well as not cutting below the skin. I also follow up each shave with T.N. Dickinson's Witch Hazel with alcohol at 14%. So here come the meat of the post. I noticed about a week ago the front of the bottle advertising it for use on cuts, scrapes, oily skin, blemishes, etc. So I thought I would give it a try on my whole face to see what would happen. Per my dermatologists orders, I wash my face two or three times a day with simply water. After each time I washed my face, I now follow up with the witch hazel. After 1 week, my face is 98% clear! Blackheads I have never been able to get rid of are leaving. This stuff is amazing, it works better than any meds I have ever taken. And its frickin cheap! If you struggle with acne at all, give this a shot. It is changing my life!
