I Spent Thousands Battling Hormonal Acne, and a $20 Regimen Cured It
Through a four-year trial-and-error method, I finally found what keeps my acne under control
The BHA refined my skin and helped to smooth it. It doesn't work (for me) on bigger, hormone-related acne, but it did a lot for my topical, bacteria-based spots.
The red marks were (and still are) trickier to deal with. Time really is the best healer for these, but I've found that using BHAs, gentle exfoliation, a vitamin C serum and always wearing sunscreen help (red marks will get darker in the sun if unprotected).
