Cystic acne is probably the worst kind of acne you can get, not that any kind of acne is good! It forms deep within your skin, then slowly rears its ugly head. You can see it breaking the surface of your skin in the form of a hard, red and painful bump. Then it comes out further and may get filled with pus.

So how far would you be willing to go for clear skin? Would you be willing to put your whole body at risk? Only if you have experienced acne first hand will you understand the pain and frustration when nothing works to clear your acne.

That’s how desperate I was!!!!! Though I never took it, I can truly understand why so many people do – acne is a big blow to your confidence and happiness.
