    Any Natual Acne Cures?


    Im kind of suffering right now with acne and I really would like to clear up my face for school. Its not terrible just want it better. Some people say rubbing alcohol? Drink tons of water? I know there will be conflicting respones but anything would be great.

    Also, any supplements that CAUSE ance? besides roids and hormones?

    Any supplements that may help reduce it?

    Any help is appreciated!!!!!!!

    Try going to your doc. and get on a topical product called Benzaclin. It worked great for me. It's a Benzoyl and anti-biotic product. Its a bit pricy though.

    B5 kinda suks.

    I had chronic cystic acne for years until recently when I used the following products..

    Liv52 at 4 tablets per day
    Apple Cider Vinegar at 4-6 tablespoons per day
    and 30,000 to 40,000 iu's of vitamin A per day
    Poseidon at 3 doses or more a day

    Now my skin is clear of acne cysts and even many of the blotchy seconday infection scars are fading out.

    Don't beleive me...I don't care.

    www.acne.org is a great site that works. I never had acne but know of quite a few people that swear by this site and technique. Their faces do look a lot better now too.

    Way back when... I used a special soap... Sastid, that helped me when I was in high school.

    Ultimately, the acne when away with time... so by the time I was in my early 20's it really wasn't an issue anymore. That was me, everybody is going to be different.

    Acne is just a part of growing up... it's not forever. Don't sweat it. If you're really concerned, go see a dermatologist for some help.

    I bought "The Skin Type Solution" and filled out the questionaire. It was enlightening, and I've been following her suggestions for my face, and it's the best my face as been.

    I was on a antibotic for 4 1/2 weeks, and decided to stop since I wasn't seeing anything from it.

    I then started Dr. Ohira's, Essential Formulas Inc., Dr. Ohhira's 12 Plus Probiotic Formula. 10 caps for 6 days, then 2 caps for now each day.

    I then switched my topical regimen a little bit.

    I currently use:

    always in the morning
    Dan Kern's Cleanser (Acne.org - Acne treatment and community) shave w/ this
    Paula's Choice BHA %2
    BP 2.5% if I feel like it
    SPF 55

    After workouts
    same as above

    evening
    Dan Kern's Cleanser (Acne.org - Acne treatment and community) shave w/ this
    Paula's Choice BHA %2
    Replenix Retinol Smoothing Serum 3x

    supplements:
    1.2 g GLA
    10 g fish oil
    2 g vit c
    2 g green tea extract

    diet, locked in. lots of vegetables. some fruit. I carb cycle now, and really enjoy it. I only have HIGH and LOW days though. My high days are ~ 20% higher than maintenance, and LOW days are ~20-25% lower than maintenance.

    I sometimes use the Carbon Mask from Paula's Choice. Feels good ... it uses charcoal I believe.

    Hope this helps.

    btw, I never found b5 to work for me. the retinol products always have helped my oil issues after the initial purging from it.

    also, I've been battling acne for 12 years.

    B5 has worked for me. I have been using it for 4-5 days and i already see my shoulders and face clearing a bit. Not as red bumps and less of them too. All i supp right now is B5, B12, Omega-3, Osteo-C, Daily. I know it's nothing else though becasue i have been on those for awhile now. I swittched to Pro-Complex from Muscle Milk maybe that had somethin to do with it too? I amgoin to try what Bioman said tho also.

    EDIT: my b5 is 250mg caps and im taking 3 a day.

    i find garlic is very effective at clearing up acne but it stinks if you cut up the garlic into thin slices and apply to the area, or chop the garlic very fine and mix with a hand cream and put that on, it takes a few days to work and it stings and stinks, have a sauna then an ice cold shower that helps a lot but to start with it flares up good luck

    Whats the point of even clearing up the acne? No woman is gonna get close to you to feel that smooth face if you stink like garlic

    In addition to the other supps listed, you might want to try topical tea tree oil. It is a natural anti-biotic.
