When I turned thirty, I started suddenly getting new, different breakouts. Deep, cystic pimples that hurt. I did a little research, and everyone recommended African Black Soap as the cure. They were right.
It took two weeks or so, but not only did this soap clear my breakouts, but it is also slowly making the scars fade. I wash my face with this at night and Derma E's Hydrating Scrub in the morning. The black soap is a little drying for my already oily skin, which is why I use the Hydrating scrub in the morning. With this routine, my face is finally starting to calm down.
Be aware: Do follow the instructions on the box and leave the lather on your face for a few minutes. Be very careful not to get this soap in your eyes, that hurts like crazy. There might be a week or two of adjustment. Don't give up!
