The only thing that worked on my face was ProActive before I started flushing. The only thing I use on my face now is witch hazel with aloe twice a day and I get TONS of compliments on my skin. I HAVE noticed that when I become constipated or don't have enough bowel movements, the Acne gets HORRIBLE. Your flushing is probably stirring up a LOT of toxins. Be patient. Have you tried juicing?
