What's ur routine? If u don't have one u def should! Cleanse, tone, treat, moisturize. Once I did this my cystic acne has gone away! I use BP cleanser, witch hazel, BP to spot treat, then aloe vera gel to moisturize. I also do a baking soda mask 2-3xs a week and steam w a hot washcloth. That really helped w the cystic acne.
