My face was so bumpy you could burst a tire driving over it.

To make matters worse, me (and my mom, mostly) spent tons of time and effort trying out pills, ointments, gels, and every kind of Proactive and Neutrogena you can think of. After all that money and searching, I came across a better solution. There was this kind of vinegar craze going on a few years back, and people…
