A woman who has been living with severe acne since 2015 says a £3 'miracle cream' has completely cleared up her skin problems.
Louise Young, 29, began having trouble with her skin when she was pregnant with her fourth child. Initially, she put the breakouts down to changing hormones, but when her little girl was born her skin continued to worsen and she was eventually diagnosed with severe cystic acne.
Despite trying every type of cream, lotion and face wash she could get her hands on, nothing worked. Louise was so desperate to try and find a fix she even used her own breast milk as a face mask after a midwife recommended it - but that made no difference either.
Louise then stumbled across TCM Scar and Acne Mark Removal Gel Ointment on eBay for a bargain price of three quid - and decided to give it a shot.
She says the ointment has completely transformed her skin and she wants others living with the condition to know all about the 'miracle' treatment.
Louise, from Stirling, said: "There was a point where I didn't leave the house for eight weeks because I couldn't bear to let anyone look at my skin, and nothing I did would help make it better.
"I felt as though I had tried everything to sort my skin out - I even put my own breast milk on my face as recommended by my midwife, but that didn't work.
"As soon as I found this cream my life changed and within two weeks my scarring started to clear up!"
The mum-of-four originally saw the cream advertised on Facebook and says it's the only thing that's worked.
"I had taken different courses of antibiotics, face washes and treatments," Lousie continued. "But my skin was still left blotchy and scarred.
"I took a course of Roaccutane for four months, which was prescribed by a dermatologist, and this helped to reduce the size of the cysts, but I was still left with scarring.
"So, when I saw this cream advertised on Facebook, and found out that it was only £3, I knew that I had to try it because I truly had nothing to lose.

"Within two weeks of using the cream three times a day I started to see results - my scarring started to clear up and I wasn't having as many break outs.
"I have been using it for a month now and it has truly changed my life. I know I'll definitely be using this miracle cream for life."
