If you’ve ever suffered with small bumps on your forehead or chin, you’ll know just how frustrating they can be.

And while you may have tried all the skincare imaginable to get the whiteheads under control, one woman claims to have answered your problems.

The Reddit user, who just goes by the name Salma, said she has battled with “closed comedones for as long as I can remember” and after using this cream for five months, she says they’ve totally disappeared.

Salma posted a picture to Reddit showing a before and after of her battle with her comedones - the first photo was taken on July 31st and the second on December 29th.

Her secret was an online product she found on her search to eradicate the bumps, called COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid.

Salma said she uses the liquid every other night as part of her evening routine.

In the morning, she cleanser with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water before moisturisng with a daily Aveeno lotion and then slapping on SPF45.

Then in the evening, she again uses the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, followed by the COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid and then 30 minutes later applies her Aveeno Daily Mositurising Lotion.

'It was a very gradual process, I just remember looking into the mirror last week and thinking, wait, didn’t I used to have lots of small spots on my forehead,” Salma wrote on Reddit.

“I had another look through my selfies and my [closed comedones; whiteheads] appear to have started reducing mid-November.”

Ever since she posted her before and after photos, Salma has been thanked for coming forward with the solution to her problems.

“Just wanted to say thanks for posting before and after shots that actually have consistent lighting conditions. It's frustrating when you can't trust a before and after comparison because you're trying to account for changes in lighting conditions, subject posing and camera angles etc etc. Your skin looks freaking amazing, by the way,” one person said.

“Wow! You've inspired me to dust off my bottle of AHA and get into a regular routine with it,” another person said.

Like any other creams, it's best to seek professional advice from your doctor before you start to use it.
