Neosporin- Acne's Worst Nightmare

     As you may have seen on my last "Clearing Things Up" post, I decided to try using neosporin as an acne treatment. Crazy? Yes. Does it work? Absolutely!!
     My friend told me this trick a few days ago, and I decided to first try it as a spot treatment. I was excited. I knew either way, even if it didn't work, it wouldn't burn or harm my skin. I mean, it's neosporin. I've been using it since the 90's! 
     Basically why it works is it because it cleans out all the bacteria in the zit- just like on a cut. So, the skin can repair itself a lot faster. Pretty easy to understand. Plus, no weird chemicals all over your face!
     I tried it as a spot treatment when I went to bed one night, and when I woke up, a couple of problem pimples had completely gone away. I was so happy! So, to continue the treatment, i mixed it in with my morning moisturizer. I've been doing this for a few days now, and my skin has improved GREATLY. My face isn't as red, many of my zits have gone away, and  it doesn't make my skin overly dry or overly oily! And my very favorite part of this is that it doesn't leave you with acne marks.
     Honestly, that's my main problem with acne. Most of the time I'll have none, but it looks like I do because of all my marks. This stuff doesn't cause marks at all! Amazing. I realllllly recommend you guys try this! Thanks for reading:)
