      Thanks for such a useful hub. I've suffered from acne most of my adult life. Drinking lots of water really does work. Whenever I forget to drink tons of water my face instantly becomes dry and irritated. This leads to acne. Also, I noticed when I take vitamin c my skin looks healthier. I've never tried tea tree oil, but I think I'll give it a try. I love using natural products. Thanks again.
