So I has no idea why I even tried this... Desperation I guess, but I took some of the WOO/Thyme Oil drops I had left over (I switched back to Gel Caps) and mixed 5 drops in with a some facial moisturizer. Well, holymoly... It does a bang up job on making clear skin virtually overnight! Or at least for me it did.
I always break out with terrible acne for a few months after stopping Pred. And this, well, I can wake up in the morning and leave now without even thinking about
it. Honestly it only took about
4 days for pretty much total clear skin. I'm pretty amazed. Pred also gives me acne on the back of my neck and upper back... it's disgusting. This got rid of it.
WARNING: This stuff burns like no tomorrow! I mean BURNS... So if you can tough it out for about
2 mins the sensation/tears go away then it's just fine. Literally about
2 mins and all is good. Borderline refreshing actually. Also it stinks like no tomorrow so you'll walk around at night smelling like a serious Italian Restaurant Chef. But hey clear skin without worry...
Maybe try a small drop on a single zit first and see what happens before getting the nerve to mix it with moisturizer. Also do NOT get it in your eyes or eyelids, but this kind goes without saying.
PS - If you're a dude - and I say this in all seriousness, do not and I repeat DO NOT take a pee after without washing your hands... talk about
burn! Good lord I cried... And not tears of joy let me tell you.
Oh yeah - Last night I was curious and googled it - turn out Thyme oil had better effects than meds on the Acne Bacteria. So there's some science to it. I just can;t find straight Thyme Oil, but the added WOO must be a potent combo.
