Do you get those painful red cysts or pimples on your chin?
The pimples/red bumps that take months to go away! The tender zits hurt so bad!
I definitely feel your pain! My chin was covered in cysts for years. When a cysts would finally go ways after months, another one would take its' place.
These types of pimples/cysts are hormonal acne. It's also called adult acne. Cysts on the chin and jawline occur in many people in their 20s.
Getting rid of these pimples is quite a task, but it can be done. It's all in finding what works for you. For me, a combination of Alpha Hydroxy Acid gel and Sulfur really worked, along with the Avene's Retinaldehyde did the trick. As I have mentioned AHA before, it really helped to stop the pimples in their tracks. Pretty amazing since AHA is a surface exfoliant and Beta Hydroxy Acid is more for cleaning out the pores. But AHA worked better for me than BHA, it might work for you too! AHA also helped to erase red marks left over from the hormonal cysts too!
Anyway, back to sulfur. Sulfur is another medication that kills bacteria. And it has worked really good for me, way better than BHA again. BHA just never worked for me and yet over the years I persistently kept trying every brand of BHA out there. Some people's skin just likes different skin care products.
Adult Acnomel is a sulfur spot treatment. I have used it and it works really well to reduce those pimples overnight.
Queen Helene Mint Julep is a sulfur mask that can be used once per week. It can actually be used as a spot treatment too. It works good as a mask for oily skin mostly, because it has Kaolin clay as an ingredient. So it's a great product with multi-uses and plus it comes in a huge tube for an unbelievable price of around $4!
DDF also makes a sulfur mask that gets great reviews for $34
I would go for the Queen Helene mask! Don't be discourage because of the cheap factor. It's about ingredients! And you can use the Queen Helene Mint Julep as a mask and as a spot treatment. Great buy for your money and for your beauty!
