    I am now two months clean but with 2 relapses in this time. Ive been completely clean for a month and a half maybe. I smoked it every day for 2 1/2 months. My face is still completely broke out and I have tried everything. I just now am trying Clearasil but I figured out it only works on bacterial acne. Could it possibly help or is this acne different? I didn't do it for long and I don't know much about it. I made a stupid decision. but anyways any tips on what I should do and things I should buy would help tons. Thank you.

    @Mbstar15... Congrats on your progress toward getting off of meth. I'm proud of you for making the decision to get clean!

    I don't have any personal experience, but I know one person who kicked meth and had a lot of success washing her face regularly with baking soda and warm water. And she drank lots of water, too. Sounds simple, but she swears by it.

    Maybe some others will weigh in, too.

    Keep doing the next right thing, my friend. We're here if you need support.

    Thank you for your advice, I will try to wash my face with soda and warm water.
  5. Unfortunately, acne has left a mark on my cheeks in the form of scars and I would like to get rid of them, if you know a good way that works, please share it with me. This is a real problem for me, and I don't feel beautiful because of these terrible scars. Besides, I have lost confidence in myself, and this has a negative impact on my work. So I realized that I had to do something about it to improve my life. Thus I found the Vitalskin blog on and found out that there are different ways to remove these scars, if you can give me some advice please do it. I want to learn what is the most effective way that will help me forget about this problem forever.
