Hi Everbody
This is my first post so please be gentle.
I am 38yrs old and I still have mild to moderate
acne, like most other acne sufferers I have tried
a zillion different things but to no avail.

Has anybody here tried something that has worked
and is also vegan.

nothing from the pharmacy worked for me. My dermatologist gave me benzac wash (peroxide based) and stievamycin (Sp?) a topical gel, and benzaclin an antibacterial topical cream. Worked great! And only used a few times a week. I don't see the dermatologist anymore......any DR can give it to you

Why don't you try MMS supplements? Getting to see so many positive testimonials nowadays.

I love the asprin mask! I use the "mask" twice a day or instead of making it a mask I'll just use the paste as a facial scrub. I really wish I had tried it sooner instead of using crappy over the counter products and expensive prescriptions.

Different things work for different people though. It's worth at least trying.

I get acne too and try using natural remedies, here's a few
Baking soda, sugar, or salt mixed with water to scrub dead skin away
Toothpaste, just the smallest bit, to spot treat, and only occasionally
Believe it or not olive oil works great both to moisturize and clear skin
Oatmeal to clean skin

I also use Burts Bee's "Orange Essence face wash" to wash my face everyday, it's worked really well for me. They don't test on animals and that particular product doesn't contain any honey

Lemon juice. I have discovered that lemon juice zaps zits amazingly fast. If i have a breakout i use it as a toner, or just as a spot treatment.

Thanks for the replies.

Never tried an aspirin mask, looked at the ingredients on a box
and the tablets contain lactose.
Have already used baking soda, toothpaste and lemon juice for
scars, none of these worked sadly.
I am going to try olive leaf extract have read some good reviews
about it. If they don't work, then I will try snuggies suggestion MMS(pills).

I've never seen any aspirin that contains lactose. Is this a box of non coated regular aspirin you have looked at? Have you been to a dermatologist yet?

Maybe it is regular aspirin, although I can't remember the last time I took
an aspirin. Are there different types of aspirin?
I haven't actually consulted a dermatologist. I'm always wary that they will
want me to drench my skin with nasty synthetic chemicals.
I prefer to try more natural remedies.

Different brands of aspirin can contain different ingredients; even different forms of a medicine within the same brand can have different ingredients (e.g. coated v.s. non-coated, liquid v.s. solid, time-released v.s. not). I'm lucky, i don't see lactose used in pills often where i live.
