    Bad Breakout

    I was previously using benzoly peroxide, which was drying out my skin terribly and not working consistently. I stopped using it for about 10 days before switching to KAVI and was only using moisturizer. I have not been using anything but coral KAVI and Complex P since I started. Most of the new breakouts are coming in close to old breakouts, which is also where I am applying the Complex P. Could it be a reaction to that? I am getting new breakouts almost constantly (new ones when I wake up in the morning and new ones that I notice after I get home for the day that weren't there that morning), even though I only use Complex P at night. Four of the large, painful ones are starting to go away but I got a new one of those during the day yesterday and woke up this morning with 2 new, smaller pimples. Without using any antiseborrheics on my skin, it would probably be incredibly oily. It is very oily while using them but dry and peeling at the same time, so with them, I suppose I have combination skin. I definitely do not want to give up on your products yet!

    Bad Breakout

    I have been using the koral kavi soap for just under a week now. I am also using the Complex P for spot treatment at night and my moisturizer, Complex 15, which I have used for over a year now. It is the week before my period and I usually break out a bit more than usual this week. However, the breakout I have right now is quite possibly the worst I have ever had. I have 7 very large, red, and painful pimples all over my face as well as about 9 new, smaller breakouts. The 7 large pimples are so big they look swollen and are very noticeable. I have had pimples like this before but only very rarely. What could be causing this terrible breakout? Does kavi sometimes make skin much worse before it improves?

    So frustrated

    Hi KAVI Support: I have 2 questions I'm hoping you might be able to answer. 1) When using the KAVI coral soap, about how long should I lather the soap on my face? 2) I have a question regarding exercise. I run outside about 4 days/week for at least 3 miles. Prior to running, I don't take off my make-up but I always wear minimal makeup (just concealer over any active pimples that I am honestly too embarassed to remove). I usually run during the afternoon or right after work. I already wash my face twice per day. Is it bad for my skin if I am running, with some makeup, and not washing my face for several hours afterward before I go to bed? If yes, what would you recommend I do, since it is only recommended to use the soap once or twice per day? Thanks so much for your help. I have only used the coral KAVI soap twice but I am very pleased with it so far.

    So frustrated

    I am a 25 year old Caucasian female. I have a full-time job, am a homeowner, and am in grad school. I just got married 3 months ago. I should be loving and enjoying my life, but I'm not, thanks to acne. I have struggled with acne for as long as I can remember. I've seen multiple dermatologists, who sometimes offered up solutions that worked but they never seemed to work long-term or the dermatologist would reduce my dosage and I'd break out again. I've tried every over-the-counter product on the market as well as some other systems (Proactiv, Exposed, acne.org regimen). Some of these work, but never consistently or long-term. I am at my wit's end trying to find a solution. I find myself literally hiding from life - calling out of work during a bad breakout, coming up with excuses not to see friends, even shying away from my husband - all thanks to my acne. I stumbled across KAVI on the acne.org message boards. I read all about you on your website and you seem to take a different approach to treating acne. Since I've tried EVERYTHING else, I figured, why not? My skin is the epitome of combination skin - it gets so oily that I use oil blotting sheets 5-10 times per day. And yet, at the very same time, so dry that I carry around tweezers to remove the constantly peeling skin. Sometimes I simply smile and the skin around my mouth cracks and peels. I don't know how to classify my acne, I get the red bumps, occassional whiteheads, and extremely painful, huge cysts (I guess that's what they are) that take forever to go away. I just ordered the coral soap, salicyclic acid peel (8), and KAVI complex P. I am keeping my fingers crossed that your products will provide some relief. Otherwise, I feel I am out of options
