Now my brother, bless him, has suffered from full blown acne for years and he still had it last time i saw him (baring in mind this was only a few weeks ago) but when i saw him yesterday his skin was completely clear.
so the first thing i asked him, typical of me, was "how did you do it? where did you get it? i want some now!" haha
and to my suprise it wasn't some expensive night cream or some fancy gel, it was dettol. yeah...the stuff you clean you kitchen with!
He said every couple of days he would put 2 caps of dettol in his bath, soak for 5 or 10 minutes and his spots would go down dramatically.
Now i'm a total sceptic when it comes to spot treatments, i've been there, used that and never found anything amazing. But i tried it anyway.
The smell was a love or hate smell. It reminded me of when i was little and my mum would clean up my cuts with it. But to some people i can imagine it not smelling too pleasant, but you get use to it after a bit.
When i got out i felt squeeky clean! (it is disinfectant after all)and my spots where visably smaller and less red. I really have to admit, the stuff works!
It's advised not to use it too often and to make sure its well diluted. If not you could cause skin irritation and it would defeat the whole point of the bath.
Thumbs up i say! :)
