For a couple of months since last quarter of 2008 till about March this year, I was struggling with a stubborn case of cheek acne. It was exasperating because I rarely had such a bad skin condition. Initially I thought it was most probably due to the oil cleansing method I was trying out. However, the acne did not really clear up even after I stopped using that cleansing method. In fact, I started to develop a few more on other parts of my face.
