My $3 Secret for Cystic Acne and Aging Skin

It's not often that skincare is the topic of discussion here at Project Alicia, but it is certainly something that is on my mind a lot these days and has become something of a lifelong obsession having been graced with acne prone skin.

I have read more than most on the subject (mostly in the wee hours of the night out of complete despair) and have tried just about every product on the market- both over-the-counter and prescription.

Topical and oral antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide creams, retinoid gels, sulfonamides, toners, astringents... by the age of 15 it seemed I had tried it all. And with little success. At the age of 18 I was put on accutane, a potent form of synthetic vitamin A aimed at reducing the amount of oil released by my glands. Regular blood testing had to be performed to monitor my internal organs and the symptoms were extreme- nose bleeds, dry lips, joint pain, bloody stools, and easily torn, shedding skin to name a few. It's certainly not the easiest route and unfortunately not a permanent cure. And for those of us who were given this drug in the 80s and 90s, they are now finding some serious long-term effects, including liver damage, bowel disorder, hair loss, back pain, fatigue as well as many other disturbing ailments. My sister (who also took accutane in her teens) now has elevated liver enzymes of an alcoholic having never taken a drink in her life. (I have yet to have mine tested.)

Accutane also seems to effect your sebum production permanently. For many it destroys the sebaceous glands making it impossible to ever produce oil again and for others (like myself) it seems to be the opposite result- sending it into hyperdrive! Which, by the way, is just swell in a humid climate area like South Carolina. (sarcasm) I have tried everything under the sun and even products that claim to reduce all oil barely scratch the surface. I use 4-6 oil blotting sheets daily and keep them in my makeup bag, car, and purse. I have been on Pantothen for over a year now with no success. It is made up of mega doses of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) and works similarly to Accutane in the way that it is reported to reduce oil production (or sebum) and then in return reduce acne.

Before I tried the Pantothen I was on the birth control Yaz, which by the way works beautifully for me once I get past the initial 4 months of cystic acne and my body balances out. It is made up of ethinyl estradiol (a synthetic estrogen) and drospirenone (progestin). The progestin works to block the sex hormones (androgens) that cause acne. Once my body got used to the Yaz, it seemed to be the perfect cure. That is, until the headaches began. Weeks on end of migraine level headaches doesn't bode well for a mother of two. It is also linked to breast cancer (which runs in my family) as well as depression and melasma. But unlike my days of pregnancy, the dark patches weren't going away.

I knew that the decision to get off of the birth control would not be easy. Just like the months it took my body to adjust initally, removing it would be met with resistance as well. I tried to prepare for the change by seeking out professional help from a dermatologist. But her solution was antibiotics. And none of which I tolerated. One gave me extreme vertigo and nausea, another gave me diarrhea. After four different failed drugs, I felt like they were literally killing me. Not to mention what they were doing to my immune system. The doctor seemed to have no other solutions, so I resorted to the internet.

I started a course of probiotics immediately and went back to ProActiv. But by this time, my face was a mess. I read about a diuretic known as Spironolactone that exhibited similar properties to the progestin in the Yaz. It also possessed anti-androgenic properties, only without the side effects of the birth control pill. I was ready to give it a try. Unfortunately after just one week, I was the 1 in thousands that experienced arterial blockage and had to get off the diuretic immediately. My body didn't have time to adjust and my face went nuts.

I felt defeated. Was there nothing that could help me?

I was pretty desperate, so I decided to try altering my diet. I read that an overgrowth of candida can often lead to rashes and acne. I actually had an undiagnosed rash on my toes at the time that had been treated with multiple creams and rather than amputation (which was actually suggested) I decided to try this more natural route. I went without sugar or white flour/wheat for 20 days. The longest twenty days of my life. Unfortunately I am not good at restrictive diets, particularly while traveling. But the little bit I sacrificed seemed to make a difference, albeit small. My rashes were all gone and my acne was improved.

Perhaps I had some kind of food allergies? (I have yet to be tested for this due to our ridiculous almost non-existence health care coverage these days.)

I continued to eat healthier (less flour, sugar and carbs in general) and used ProActiv for months. It seemed to be better, so I decided to try my first ever peel, the Vi Peel, to address my melasma. My skin immediately was better, but something about the peel seemed to disturb the balance in my epidermal layers. The cystic acne was back with a vengeance. I wanted to cry.

I'm not sure what it is about my skin, but it could be one small change it doesn't like and it takes months to recover. Whether it's a new foundation, a sunscreen or a peel. And then there's those mysteries- the times you change nothing that you know of and you can't for the life of you figure out why your face is a mess.

This leads me to believe that there are certainly more factors at play than just environmental. I know that as a woman I have hormonal fluctuations going on inside this little frame of mine on a daily basis and it's a wonder some days I can even function at all.

I'm 40 years old and have already begun the fun hot flashes and irregular cycles that are supposed to be reserved for menopause. This peri-menopause seems to come early in my family, but I have rarely had balanced hormones so it is no surprise to me. I am on the hunt for a natural hormone doctor that uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) but being new to the area, it has been a slow process. I don't want to rush into anything. (But this is an entirely different topic for another day.)

Female frustrations are many and they are no respecter of persons. If you have been able to somehow sail through your teens and twenties without acne, don't get too complacent. It seems those midlife hormonal battles bring out the worst in skin- particularly for those individuals who bypassed it in their youth. And it's not your typical acne. It's the cystic kind- the painful ones that linger for weeks, typically located along your jawline and/or your chin. I blame the hormones- they are responsible for the overactive oil glands that produce excess sebum (oil) that in turn block hair follicles and pores and eventually lead to plugs, bacteria and acne.

Isn't aging a joy? Fine lines, melasma, aching joints, droopy skin, hot flashes and now- cysts on your face!

Grapeseed Oil

Recently my older sister and I had a conversation on the phone. Skin is a common topic of discussion these days and she happened to mention that she read grapeseed oil may be effective for acne.

Having tried everything known to mankind (or so it seems) to treat acne, I figured why not try this. Hubs picked it up at the local grocer on his way home from work and I wasted no time in trying this crazy remedy. Oil. Who treats acne with oil? And cooking oil no less?

But I cleansed my skin and dabbed a bit of the oil on my problem spots that night.

Within days my cysts had vanished and I was in disbelief. I continued to use it for months, every night. I wanted to be sure this was no coincidence.

But it appeared to be some kind of miracle cure. My once cystic nodes that would last for weeks, leaving behind dark scars whether I picked or not, were just vanishing. No more weeks- they were gone within days!

Last night I decided to do more research. I wanted to know why. Why would grapeseed oil be effective on acne? Such a perplexing notion to wrap my head around.

My research had my head spinning. It seems grapeseed oil is not only great for acne, but also works to moisturize, tighten skin, eliminate dark under-eye circles, and fight aging.

Combat Acne Grapeseed oil contains both Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps maintain skin as well as heal scars and the Linoleic Acid (also known as Omega 6) has anti-inflammatory properties, making the healing process quicker. It doesn't clog pores and actually works to help balance our oils.

Moisturize It is lightweight and can be used as a moisturizer for all skin types, including dry and oily. It even works on sensitive skin! Just slather on your skin or put several drops into your favorite moisturizer. It absorbs quickly into the skin.

Tighten Skin It also contains an astringent that works to tone and tighten the skin. This is ideal for all skin types, but more specifically oily.

Remove Under-Eye Circles The oil contains no harmful chemicals and has been found to be effective in treating dark under-eye circles because of the antioxidants. Just gently dab it under the eye and look forward to results within a couple weeks.

Fight Aging Grapeseed oil contains OPCs, otherwise known as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes which are rich antioxidants that fight aging. The oil helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and works against free radicals. It's also been known to maintain collagen and elastin. If you have a little extra after you rub it on your face, use it on your neck!

You can read more here or here.

It seems to be a well kept secret in Hollywood as well. Emma Stone uses it up to three times a day to maintain her blemish free, gorgeous skin. She could afford any treatment, but she chooses grapeseed oil. Interesting.

Also noteworthy: The oil can be used in conjunction with other skin care lines. I am currently using Clarisonic's Refreshing Gel Cleanser and Mia Brush in the evening and the Proactiv Cleanser in the morning. I have eliminated almost all soda from my diet, particularly caffeinated beverages, and drink 1 Litre of water daily. I rarely leave the house without sunscreen and work out on a regular basis. Not sure if any of these contribute to my skin, but I felt that they needed to be shared.

I am not saying that this is the cure for everyone as no one's makeup is identical, but after trying more products than I can count with little to no success, I am so happy to have finally found something that is making a difference-- that is a natural product. And for practically nothing. It is literally just a few dollars and can be found at most grocers in the baking aisle with the other cooking oils.

And the best part is that it fights more than just acne- which certainly appeals to me as an aging woman.

If you were blessed with perfect hormones and perfect skin- I will try to not be too jealous. But after extensive study, I know that I am not alone and that adult cystic acne plagues the majority of women. I hope that something I've said here helps you on your path to clearer skin and a happier disposition. Heaven knows we have enough to stress about in our 30s and 40s. Good luck!


  1. Thank you for this! I am in my mid-30's and I have been having problems with hormonal cystic acne lately. Other than being ugly, they hurt! I will definitely pick up some grapeseed oil next time I am in the grocery store.

  2. This is great info that people should know. I cleanse with a combo of castor oil and grapeseed oil and it seems to work well!

  3. Until now I would have never thought to try using oil to combat oil and/or acne, but my research has been enlightening and the results are incredible! Thanks for sharing your cleansing secrets!

  4. Yes, they do hurt! Doesn't quite seem fair, does it? Because this works to heal quickly there is much less pain as well. You'll have to let me know how it goes.

    What, what??!! Seriously? Thank you so much for sharing this! I will definitely try it. I, just this evening, picked up my prescription of Finacea from the pharmacy, and now that we no longer have decent insurance, it cost me $189 for a tube! I am also using Plexion cleanser $$$ and taking Oracea daily $$$. Wowzers! I hope this works for me. Thank you! Thank you!!! Bless you for sharing this information and your story. Mwah!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this information! And your story! I have dealt with acne my whole life, it seems, and am in pretty much the same situation as you ... with peri-menopause, acne, AND wrinkles! UGH! And my teenage daughter seems to have inherited my genes and is dealing with acne now also. I will be going out tomorrow and picking up a bottle of grapeseed oil.

    Oh, and I just picked up a hormone testing kit from my doctor today. Once I do the test and the results come back, I will be consulting with her and a local pharmacist that does compounding. I know you are many miles away from Pennsylvania but I could get you the pharmacist's information and perhaps he could do a phone consult with you. He gets much praise from several women I know. :) Just a thought.

  7. Yeah, none of that stuff is cheap! I was on the Oracea just last year. I think I may have found a coupon online, but even so- it's crazy expensive! I actually eliminated all prescription meds and now that our insurance is so horrible, I realize how much of a blessing it is that I've found an alternative route. I so hope the grapeseed works for you too! It's certainly worth the $3 investment. ;)

  8. So sorry to hear of your struggles! It just doesn't seem fair to go through so many undesirable body changes and then to have cystic acne on top of it all. You'll have to tell me if the grapeseed oil works for either of you. I really wish I'd known about it years ago. And you are so lucky that you have a great hormonal doctor there and a compounding pharmacy. I'm hoping that I can find someone around here, but I'll let you know if my search turns up futile. I really need to get my hormone levels checked!

  9. I've always been told that oil helps oily because washing strips oils away and causes overproduction. In essence, people who have oily skin actually have dry skin (the oil is the body's response to "fix" the dry skin). So when you put oil on oil (which seems counterproductive at first), you're actually telling your body, "Hey, I've got plenty of oil going on over here! Thanks for the offer but I don't need any extra." It's the same concept as drinking more water to lose water weight (you're telling your body that you are going to supply it with plenty of fluids so it stops storing excess water in preparation for dehydration). Of course, there's lots of other factors in skin (what you eat, if you're excessively sweaty, hormones, etc.) but that's a big part of it. The same oil concept applies to hair, by the way. Many people with oily hair have switched to a "conditioner only washing" and reported that (after the initial adjustment period), their hair was no longer oily at the scalp (shampoo strips the oil away, conditioner puts oil back on). Aren't our bodies amazingly clever?!

    Aside from all that (sorry, didn't mean to get all soapboxy there), I'd love to try this out. I've been pretty blessed for the past 10 years or so with minimal acne (although my body hates Mirena so it causes flare-ups now and then) but I've started considering "aging products" recently. I was shocked at how expensive eye/wrinkle cream is (at least the ones I've read good reviews on being effective) so I'll definitely give this a shot. We actually already have some grapeseed oil!

  10. I'm sorry you have struggled with this!! My husband has struggled his entire life with acne too (well since he was 18 or so) and he is 38 now and still has acne outbreaks, not just on his face either but all over his back and neck too. It bothers him a lot and I know effects his self-esteem. He was on Tetracycline for many years, and it did seem to help but I encouraged him to stop taking it because I felt that the constant use of antibiotics was not good either. He agreed and he stopped taking and things were OK for a year or so (also around the time we lived in a non-humid area) but now things are bad again. The ironic part is that he is VERY good about cleaning/washing his face. Much more so than me. He washes his face at least 3 x a day, and he uses toner in the morning and at night. Anyway, I know he is very concerned about putting any oil on his skin since he has oily skin to begin with and was told that it is the oil that gets clogged and makes his outbreaks. But , I may try to talk him into trying this. Even if just a little to start. Have you read any research on Grapeseed oil used for acne on men? I'm guessing it shouldn't be any different, but just curious. Thanks so much for posting this!!!!

  11. This is very interesting. I think I've heard of this before but it's not something I've given much thought to. And if my extreme oily skin is in fact really dry, I'm curious if adding the additional oil will eventually even me out or if it is just a hormonal thing. Our bodies really are amazingly clever though. I just recently started drinking more water and have actually dropped a few pounds and never connected the two before reading your comment. Thanks for sharing your insights!

  12. I think it will even out if it's a case of "oily skin that is actually dry skin." I had oily skin and never used moisturizer because I had that fear of putting more oil on top of already-too-much oil. Someone explained it to me the way I did above so I started using it, and It only took about two weeks for my skin to even out (this was in the middle of Summer, when my skin normally tends to be even more oily). Now my face is actually a bit dry if I skip moisturizer. My mom and my sister both had the same experiences with it. There are so many variables involved with skin but adding oil to oil is one thing I always suggest now as an option because I've seen it work so many times.

  13. I can't tell you how happy I am that you wrote this post. So many things hit home for me. I've always had bad skin and I thought getting out of my 20's and into my 30's would help, but no luck. I've also had bad hormonal problems and was diagnosed with PCOS and I've been on and off Yaz to treat that. I went off it for a long time and recently went back on it. I'm in month two and have been getting really bad cystic acne...but I never put two and two together. I seemed to remember Yaz helping my skin in the past and couldnt figure out why it wasn't working now. But I'm only on month 2, so maybe now its causing the cysts, and later it will help. I've also gotten bad migraines in the past but haven't in a while, so maybe that's because I've been off the yaz... Like I said, I can relate to SO much that you wrote about here. And you better believe I'm going to go buy some grape seed oil tonight and try it immediately!

  14. When I was younger on Yaz it wasn't such a difficult transition but when I tried it later it was a long, painful adjustment. It literally took 4 months for my face to adjust. I ended up getting on Tetracycline the last month and 1/2 just to power through. Once I made it to 4 months my oil was better and my acne entirely cleared up. Hope that's the case for you too! The migraines seemed to come after I was on the Yaz a while, almost like a build up or something- both times I was on it. Annoying. Hormones are definitely not easy to deal with, so good luck!

  15. Creating Through LIFEMonday, 29 April, 2013

    You always look so beautiful in your pictures. I would never have imagined you dealt with something like this. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm sold on trying this stuff for sure!

  16. Thanks for the kind words. We all have struggles in one form or another- no one is exempt from them. Just wish I could move on to a different one for a while. ;) P.S. I've gotten pretty good at applying makeup over the years.

  17. This is such an awesome, thorough, well-written & informative post, Alicia!
    THANK YOU for this information!

  18. You're so welcome! I hope in some small way I can help another struggling...

  19. WOW....after reading your post and scrolling down to see the Exact same kind of Grape seed oil that I use(Pompeian) blew me away. I have been using this oil for about two years and I can't imagine using anything else. I have saved tons of money on facial cleaners and makeup removers since using this oil. My skin keeps a dewy appearance without a oil shine, and I have def notice less breakouts using this oil. I use it straight out of the shower and my dry skin stays moist for days.

  20. i also use this for cooking of course, stir fry's, fried foods,baking and instead of butter when toasting breads. it has a higher smoking point than other oils and is healthy.....this is a multi useful product....make things alot more simple in your life and save money!

  21. Try the natural herb Burdock for breakouts.....much better and healthier than the toxic Tetracycline....and save it and start enjoying life....

  22. Reading your blog has given me some hope for my skin! I have always had problematic skin through my teens and 20's and dealt with it as much as I could. Now that I am 34 my skin is breaking out with cystic acne on my neck and jawline in a very bad way. It is sad, embarrassing and very frustrating in so many ways! I have been very apprehensive about what I use on my skin and am not into using all the oral prescription medicines or birth control as they make me depressed and a little on the crazy side. I am going to get some grapeseed oil and see how it works. Question is what is your routine for using it? I have a Clarisonic Mia and only use it in the morning with my acne face wash. Do you apply it at night all over your face or only on the spots that show up? Please give me a little insight to how you use it so I am able to get my skin back on track. I look forward to hearing from you!

  23. I'm so sorry to hear of your struggles. I know how frustrating it is. My regimen is: Proactive acne wash in morning (sometimes I add the accompanying acne lotion) and Clarisonic with mild cleanser (that goes with it) in the evening. I finish with a dab of the oil in my problematic spots. I have found that the oil works great if I start applying it the second I feel a cyst coming on. This simple system seems to be the best I've found yet. Good luck. Hope this answers your questions.

  24. Mimi Kelly JohnsonTuesday, 23 July, 2013

    Wow thanks for sharing this. I have been researching oils for months and know now that the beneficial oils for acne are the ones that are high in Linoleic Acid: Hemp seed, sunflower, safflower and grape seed! Has anyone tried the Now Brand-just plain grape seed oil? I can't use products with vitamin E added because I have an immune condition and it flares my symptoms if I put vitamin E on my skin. I don't think the Now is cold pressed, but the cold pressed might be too strong for me. Thanks for any thoughts

  25. I bought a bottle of Grapeseed oil today after realizing that my acne was always only a little bit better after using Caudalie Products (The line was invented by wine makers) Reading your blog post has told me why and I'm actually pretty excited about using it now!


    Fashion and Happy Things

  26. Alicia -- Did you start the grapeseed oil in conjunction with what you were already using? And do you just use it as a spot treatment or a wash like most traditional oil cleansing? I too am having issues after coming of the birth control pill after being on in for over a decade. I suspected I would as I originally went on the bcp for my skin back in college. I was fine until about month 5 and thought I had gotten "past it" and then I slowly started having issues. I thought I was getting it under control and them wham, hello cystic acne on the 7th month. I've been doing cortisone injections on the big guys but this is not a feasible strategy. Currently using Aczone as a topical. My thought is that since I've been on the bcp for sooo long that it will take my body time to realize what's normal. I'm also trying Estroblock and will be trying a progesterone oil once I get it. I'm willing to plug through it if I know it will get better as I don't want to go back on the birth control but the birth control has been my savior for many years and I never had issues with it. I'm tempted to go back on it but then what, go through this all again when I want to come off it again?

    You might have PCOS. Have your gyno test you.

  28. I've had pesky skin from puberty onward and it has become increasingly challenging with the onset of peri-menopause. I've used expensive retail products and Proactiv for approximately 6 month intervals, but found it would stop working for me and leave me with eruptions that it could no longer control.

    I tried Clinique, DHC, Tea Tree products etc. during those times when Proactiv was not working for me. FINALLY, I tried this natural brand called Citrus Clear after researching online - this was 2 years ago when I had a major eruption. I've been using Citrus Clear products ever since. In addition to Citrus Clears ability to CONTROL my acne, it also has an option to help MAINTAIN my clear face. And its all natural and doesnt burn. I love that I have an option of which face wash to use, depending on the day.

  29. Not sure if it's related but I started using my argaorganic shampoo as a
    Face cleanser and started getting better results then my $90 dr spiller cleanser. Maybe it was the argan oil in the shampoo? Will def try grape seed oil I use it as amosite riser

  30. I get the occasional painful cyst-type acne (I am in my mid 20's and this is a recent development).I have pretty sensitive dry/normal combo skin and other treatments I have tried have just made me peely and flaky.

    I have been using Citrus Clear Control products for a month. At first the treatment was a little drying so I went to using it every other night and now I am applying it every night following it up with the moisturizer. My skin is DEFINITELY clearer. It is still a little irritating every once in awhile but I have not had any peeling/redness. It definitely stops the cyst-type acne from coming back.

  31. Do you have any deep
    Scarring or "pockmarks" from your acne? Wondering if grapeseed helps soften scars as well.

  32. I have been using grapeseed oil for 3 months now and it is working great, my skin looks better than ever. I will be 62 on Wednesday,
    I feel like I have found a wonderful answer to my troublesome skin. Thanks so much

  33. Thank you very much for sharing this information. As a 34 year old woman, I struggle with the same skin issues you describe and have tired everything from strict diet modification to having my hormones tested... so far nothing has helped much. Am going to give Grapeseed oil a try :-)

  34. I just heard about grapeseed oil last night and purchased some today. Already applied it and am hoping for the best! I havent been able to wear any makeup for 10 years, even the stuff for sensitive skin would break me out. Been dealing with the cystic acne for 3 years now. I am lucky to get one week a month of clear skin. I am 47, no signs of menopause yet. I sure hope this works!

  36. My story has to do with the healing power of Rick Simpson cannabis oil."My sister Khloe, age 65, was diagnosed with Bone Cancer on the inside of her backbone 2 years ago, which had metastasized from breast cancer she didn't know she had. I prayed for a total healing with NO operation, no chemo and no radiation. not everyone has had the experience of knowing Rick Simpson as their Healer… but they can! Rick Simpson, father of all natural hemp..

    May the grace of God be upon Rick for his good work and courage; and with his Hemp we are healed”.

The doctor himself confirmed to us on Tuesday last week that my sister Khloe is fully OK.

  43. Thank you soo much for this post!!! I can not thank you enough. I have had the same cystic pimple for months, and after attempting to pop with with a needle in May, it went dormant but eventually came back even more painful in August. I have tried everything to try and get rid of it but nothing seemed to work. I even spent $40 on the Renee Rouleau anti-cyst product but it just was not seeming to help very much. At first, I tried tea-tree oil but it was drying it out so much and I could not cover it up with make-up anymore. I decided to go ahead and try the grape seed oil because I figured, well it wouldn't hurt to try, and after reading your review I went to the store and bought. I bought it yesterday and after washing my face with my normal routine, dabbed it onto my cystic pimple and then applied a few drops of tea-tree oil on it. I was ASTONISHED when I awoke this mooring to see that it had not only decreased in size but it looked soooo much better! I showered and after washing my face this morning, applied it once again and then the tea-tree oil. I decided to not look at it all day and try to not touch it or even think about it. Now, that I am home I touched where it is and could not believe it. It has decreased even more!

  45. My journey with breast cancer started in November 2004. I was devastated, scared and numb when I found out I had cancer. At the time, I was 48 and thought that I was healthy.
    I immediately started researching doctors and treatments. I found a surgeon near my home outside of Savannah, Georgia to remove the tumor. After the surgery, I consulted with a local oncologist and radiologist.

    The doctors were so impersonal. They didn't want to listen to a word I was saying. They wanted to put me in one of those cookie-cutter scenarios. There were no other options for me. They just wanted to cut,

    radiate and do the chemo. I felt with the way they were conducting business, I had to get a second opinion. so we decided to try Rick Simpson hemp oil. we contacted Rick, i used the oil for a month and there was great changes, am cancer free now.
