I have had acne my whole life. I thought nothing would ever work and just came to the conclusion that I would always have it. I tried everything! Now in my late 20's I finally found something. I tried toothpaste, proactive, you name it I tried it! If you have had acne you know it can scar not only your face and body but also your relationships. I used to hide in the bathroom until I had makeup on and even then it was obvious. I lost boyfriends because of my own insecurity. Everyone tried to give me advise as if it were me causing the problem. The thing that finally worked for me was as simple as sugar and cinnamon! It burns like hell! But you know that if you have it, it is worth it. I just mix up a cup of sugar and a third cup of cinnamon in a little jar in my bathroom. I wet my face with water and scoop up a small amount and rub it all over my face until I can't stand the burn. My face will be red for a little while but I don't mind. Sometimes I fallow up with a dab mild lotion like baby lotion to calm my skin.

I do this! It seems though like my skin has been kind of eh..I don't know how to word it but like you have any advice for that? I don't know if I'm rubbing it on TOO much or not..

The person who last posted about their face being raw; Try applying some medicated lotion on your face, or better yet rose water; i heard that tones your face.

So, does this remedy work or no?

This remedy burn like nothing i've ever felt on my face before but does work. Don't rub your face too hard. It's never recommended to rub hard on your face it could cause pre-mature wrinkling. I'm 27 and was getting desperate. I've even gone to the dermatologist and the face washes and creams he gave me didn't work. Cetaphil lotion feels really good after and is a great lotion.

for the redness dab some whole milk with vitamin D on your face.

This works for me as well =) After I put on aveeno calming face lotion with spf 30 it's the only lotion that doesn't break out my skin.

I use this too. My acne isn't that bad so its doesnt do alot but it makes my faces very smooth and I have a little redness for like less than 10 mins after the mask. I do enjoy having a soft face though. If you havnt tried it, you so should! :)
