some other stuff to try for acne:-Taking a goodly anuomt (1000 milligrams plus) of vitamin C internally. Combined with a low-fat diet, it seems to help a lot.-Aloe Vera gel-get your skin really gloopy with it and leave it 2 times daily. Grow your own aloe, too-you can't kill the stuff.-I have oily skin, so mixing a half-and-half paste with antibacterial soap and baking soda, rubbing it gently onto my face, and rinsing, doesn't dry it excessively.
