Acne Lesson

For years I suffered from Acne.  I was well past my teens and the horrible eruptions continued.  I even pondered if perhaps a demon was causing them.  There would be two in full bloom and one fading and two more coming on at any one time.  Bumps.
I would put soap on my face..special cosmetic acne soap and I would dab with alcohol as well, believing that I needed to kill the germs.  I finally got some blue red acne lights in my mid forties- that treatment was a success.   I am not sure, but perhaps it was my surrogate father Fred who said he only used water on his face.  I decided that I would do that, too.  There is a natural balance of bacteria on the skin, perhaps soap and alcohol are detrimental.  If I experience breakthrough bumps, I do have a tube of clindemycin gel to put on, but that is the rare occasion.


We capitalists think that all the solutions to are problems are wrapped up in a certain product.  It is true that I purchased several products to fight my acne, but overall the best treatment  is a warm washcloth.  I am a mystic, not a consumer of porn or much TV so I dab some Myrrh which has been cut with another oil on my forehead (third eye).  Sometimes Frankincense is used, instead.

Lessons in life.  My way or the highway. ;-)
