Acne at 30

I stumbled upon this site in my quest to find an answer to my acne problem. I am 30 years old and have been battling serious acne for the last 4 years. I had virtually no acne before then. It is really a strange form of acne, like overnight acne. I go to bed with a clear chin and wake up with 20 pus filled spots. if I leave the spots alone they harden, blacken on the surface and yellow inside.When I press the hardened stuff out the lession 'heals' for a day and the next day we are back to square one. Puss filled once again. This is one never ending trauma. One really strange thing is that I was diagnosed with 2 Uterine fibroids 2 years ago,they were both about 4 cms and I thought this means I am high in Oestrogen because these fibroids are caused by high Oestrogen levels. I am skinny, 49kgs at 5'7. I am also the perfect example of a healthy diet freak. I never eat any oily or fatty stuff. I drink lots of water and eat fruits and vegetables and take long walks everyday but it doesn't help my skin from breaking out. I've been on anti-biotics, all manner of skin lotions and gels but they don't help much. It has become a way of my life. I can't even look in the mirror anymore. Having dark skin means the acne marks leave my skin terrebly hyperpigmented. One more thing, I suffer from constipation, naturally I would do a long one only once a week if I don't help it with laxatives! I was once on Anti- Androgen Birth control pills with oestrogen. They made my Uterine fibroids grow so big that I could feel them against my tiny frame so I gave them up. I also get a sugar rush after eating white rice or starchy foods. Bread and Beer definitely makes my acne worse. I get bloated after eating sugary stuff. Now, what on earth could be my problem oh yee knowledgeable people?

I am 32 and everytime I have a stressful situation I get these deep painful cysts on my temples and sporadically on my forehead. So, I have tried lots of different things. I have read that your face's pH is actually acidic, and through my research I have decided upon Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. Now, I don't know if you can just buy any old apple cider vinegar, but, I believe if it is important to you you will buy the best!
I put my first application on last night and immediately all of the acne started to get whiteheads. I extracted them and put another application on. So, today I am sitting here with a paper towel soaked in apple cider vinegar and writing this. I think I have found the best method. I will post again when I know for sure, but, I have no new acne. I wish I could control the source, though...the stress. When I get stressed I can actually feel the acne pulsing...it is painful and I always feel it is getting worse by getting stressed. Good luck!
