These products stopped my cystic acne

I’ve struggled with cystic acne since I was a teenager. I tried lots of prescriptions, including tretinoin, but nothing cleared my skin UNTIL I started using these products: - Azelaic Acid - Aloe Propolis - Salicylic Acid Since I started regularly using these three products, my breakouts have been under control for the first time in years. I still get the occasional zit, but I have not had cystic acne in months. For those who are curious, these are the exact products I use: Cos de Baha - Azelaic Acid Serum Benton - Aloe Propolis Gel Paula’s Choice - BHA Toner Have other people found success with these ingredients together?!

I just started to introduce azelaic acid to my skin weeks ago. im using azeclair serum from geek & gorgeous and the result is amazing. i did experience some purging at some areas but after that, no new acne at all. so yeah, i absolutely agree with you. in fact, propolis and SA are part of ingredients that do help with break outs and stuff.
