Will going all natural work? I’ve briefed my story

Hey, guys.

I have been following the community for quite sometime now, honestly, only when I needed to view the revision of the products that made me susceptible to comedonal acne. The blog is the best one, that I have come across so far.

I am 23 now. First 22 years were the most blissful years of my life. I had perfectly flawless skin, one or two pimples around that time of the month that’s it 🙂

It all started when I moved to chennai, to stay along with my husband, it-acne. My forehead was covered in bumps, ugly looking bumps. I didn’t bother and continued the usage of my once-best-friend ponds white beauty. I saw no improvement on my forehead when I decided to give clearsil a try – no use.

One evening, a situation got me into taking an oral contraceptive pill  i-pill or 72 hours, I don’t remember which one. A few days later I notice  invisible bumps on my cheeks, when I touch them, I feel a lot of them when when I look into the mirror until very close, I don’t see them. This worried me ton and I decided to visit a dermatologist. Well early in time isn’t it?

I did everything he prescribed, nothing worked on me. 6 months and I have already lost my beautiful skin. My skin is now covered in pimples, all over 🙁

I tried using every product possible, everything that claimed to work. They only worsened my face.

I never used makeup before but have started using, occasionally though from last 7 months.

By the time I turned 23, I shifted to Bangalore. Here I visited a dermatologist who prescribed me topical applications:

1. cetaphil cleanser for oily skin

2. nadoxin cream/gel + la shield sunscreen

3. adaplene for the nights

6 months now,

I have an almost clear skin but almost 🙁

What I see on my skin:

1. whiteheads 4-5

2. acne marks on my right cheek

I have an extremely fair skin so that makes these ugly creatures even more visible.


I have decided to go all natural now:

1. I wash my face with AHAglow facewash

2. using haldi besan curd mask for 10 min

3. apply lemon + cucumber homemade toner  + cover my face completely when in sun. I am not exposed to sun often

4. Take triphala every night

5. Start the day with wheat grass on an empty stomach.


Please tell me this will work! I need help, I am desperate.

Studies show that Green tea reduces sebum production by 70% !! omg tats alot :0 there are many studies that show positive results:-

oh btw the studies show the effectivness of 2 or 3% green tea lotions ,etc ,

Suggest a solution for acne scars and pigmentation

Hi @acnemantra  could you suggest a cream for pigmentation.. Mine is dry skin & APST2 .. I have been using Acne-Aid soap from past 2 yrs and lot of my acne got reduced to a considerable level.  But I am left with acne scars and some pigmentation. Though the intensity of these got reduced from past 4-5 yrs ,they are still visible.

When I go thru some of the products that I have come across Dermologica c-12 concentrate. Although I am not sure the specific use of this, I found in some of the reviews that it works for pigmentation and acne scars. Can I go with this? I not, could ypu pl recommend if there is any product that is much targetted towards my problem?

others on the forum, pls share ur experiences if u have used the above product or any other product that worked for you.  All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
