Please Help - trying to clear acne

Hi, my name is John and I am 21 years old. For some reason over the past year my acne has come back worse than ever. I feel like I have tried everything with 0 success. I have seen a dermatologist but they provided no help and were clearly just after my money. I have tried Proactiv, Proactiv+, Benzoyl peroxide cleansers, salicylic acid, prescription grade adapalene, supplements such as zinc, probiotics, vitamins, cod liver oil, and pretty much every cleanser in existence. I have also tried every other remedy such as drinking heaps of water, changing my pillow case everyday, drinking apple cider vinegar, green tea, etc. I have tried dietary changes like cutting out dairy, sugar and wheat but this made no difference.
I am so beyond fed up with this acne, I try SO hard to get rid of it but nothing seems to work. It is such a terrible feeling seeing all my friends who put no effort into their skincare and eat junk have flawless skin. I would really appreciate any advice that anybody could offer.

Re: Please Help - trying to clear acne

Hi Johnsampson,

Thank you for posting on the forum regarding your acne. It sounds like a very frustrating time for you especially as you have been so pro-active exploring many avenues to try and alleviate your symptoms.

There is one more avenue you may wish to explore and that is looking at your gut microbiome. Please check out one of our client's websites and how an in-balance in your good/bad gut bugs can influence your skin. Please check it out here:

Hi Johnsampson,
I think you are fed up with your acne problems and you very afraid to do something. But don't worry. Always that happens because clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It may happen because the microbiome as talk health says. Anyway, you are fed up with these treatments are not?

try these methods its may help you. Its remedy.
Moisturize With Aloe Vera and lemon juice.
Aloe vera is a tropical plant whose leaves produce a clear gel.
The gel is often added to lotions, creams, ointments, and soaps. It’s commonly used to treat abrasions, rashes, burns and other skin conditions. :shock: :shock:
every time you keep your face clean. You have to defeat your germs in your skin. then wash your face low heat water and wipe out water slowly clean towel. and remember don't touch your face every time and dont squeeze the acne... 8-) 8-)

You may have to try a antibiotic medication prescribed or dermatologist.

Re: Please Help - trying to clear acne

Hi Johnsampson,

I really feel for you. I went through the same for years. The only thing that worked for me was Roaccutane. I know its had a bad press regarding depression and suicidal thoughts but I was fine on it even though I had struggled with depression for years.
I had to go on it again a few years later but it did the trick. Antibiotics didnt do anything for me. I was on them for years.

Hope you find something that helps.

Re: Please Help - trying to clear acne

Are there natural acne cures that work or is it a new age myth? Is there a permanent cure for acne or are all acne sufferers sentenced to the Sisyphean battle of tackling the ‘on the surface’ symptoms? Is there an honest, natural and safer alternative to the endless use of over the counters and to the nasty side effects inflicted by conventional drugs, creams and topical acne treatments?

Most dermatologists and other western medicine followers have already answered that controversial question by claiming that acne, among other diseases simply cannot be cured.

There are 2 reasons for that:

1. Most dermatologists don't even know what the real cause of acne is. It's amazing but true. They are highly familiar with the symptoms of acne and they specialize in tackling the 'on the surface' symptoms, but unfortunately they cannot tell you what the internal conditions are that cause your acne to form in the first place. If you don't believe me just ask your dermatologist.

2. Most doctors work in conjunction with the pharmaceutical and drug companies and the latter is not motivated, so to speak, at discovering a cure for Acne or Aids or Cancer - simply because hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on finding treatments for the symptoms of diseases. Why? simply because their global aim is to make more profit by creating consumer dependency. By applying medications and creams that deal merely with the symptoms while ignoring the source or the internal cause of the disease, acne will never be cured. The average acne sufferer will become more and more reliant on drugs that temporarily calm the symptoms and that means steady income for the drug and pharmaceutical companies.

There's a lovely metaphor describing acne among other chronic diseases and the way modern medicine deals with these afflictions: If you manage to kill all the mosquitoes around a stale pond using chemicals, for a little while there will be no mosquitoes.

But since the source of the problem (what causes the mosquitoes to appear) is still there – the stale, disgusting pond where mosquitoes can find food and fertile ground for laying their eggs – mosquitoes will always come back!

The same thing happens with your acne!

Without eliminating the source of your acne condition, you will never get rid of your acne. Without fixing the internal problem that is causing your acne, you may find temporary relief, but your acne will always come back until you do something fundamental to eradicate the cause from within...until you make the pond (your body or internal system) a place where ‘mosquitoes’ cannot exist.

Ultimately, every disease results from a breakdown within your body. All major diseases and chronic conditions are warning signs of something very fundamentally wrong inside. Deepak Chopra refers to this as "The violation of simple laws of nature that make our body function."

The very surprising truth is that you are lucky for having acne. Let me explain...Acne, like constant headaches, irritable bowel syndrome or dandruffs is only a small message from your body that something is wrong internally and should be addressed and corrected.

Now, there are two choices you can make - you can:

1.Ignore that message - big mistake! The internal imbalance that caused your acne will, in most cases, turn into a chronic condition. Now instead of just having acne you'll start having other hormonal imbalance or toxic overload related symptoms in addition to acne. Because the internal problem is not fixed, the disease symptoms get more and more intense.

2.Listen to your body and start fixing the internal problem that causes your acne to appear in the first place; you will not only get rid of your acne you will also achieve beautiful, healthy, even toned clear skin complexion, re-balance your body and prevent future hormonal or toxic overload related conditions.

The simple truth is...you are out of balance. We now live a 'far-from-natural' lifestyle. There are over 300 synthetic industrial chemicals present in our bodies that did not exist 50 years ago. We are filled with toxins from the food, and medication we ingest and use.

By fixing the internal condition that causes your acne in addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle (healthy diet & mindset, cleanse & detoxify, hormonal balancing etc.) you will put your body back into balance – holistically - your acne will cease to exist and you feel as healthy and attractive as ever!

It doesn't matter what type of acne you have. Whether you suffer from: acne vulgaris, acne Conglobata, acne Rosacea, Acne Fulminans, Blackheads, Whiteheads, Papules, Pustules, Nodules or Cysts: The principles required to cure your acne are basically the same. The "holistic" ways of treating people have been around for thousands of years, and they absolutely work whether you have teen or adult acne; whether you suffer from acne on your back, shoulders or chest or if you suffer from female related acne such as menopause acne or acne due to monthly cycles.

Whatever your acne condition is, when you finally decide to stop making the same acne treatment mistakes that have been holding you back and begin applying the holistic approach to curing acne, you can literally choose to become clear and stay clear. You will have the power to make it happen.

Hey Johnsampson,
Dont worry about the scars, it is normal at your age. The main reason is the hormonal changes and the overproduction of sebum in the glands. It may be treated by some home remedies. It helps to reduce the severity of the scars. Dont touch or pluck the pimples. When we touch on it there is more chance to get a scar. If you cannot handle this stage better do. This treatment helps to remove the scars to an extent. Otherwise, try to enjoy your present age, by avoiding thinking of scars.

Re: Please Help - trying to clear acne

I know this won't cure your acne BUT - if someone cares about you - they'll realize your acne isn't your fault. It isn't because of junk food or poor skin hygiene: it is because of a medical condition no cream or lotion can change.

I hate saying this: but there is little you can do. It sounds terribly negative but maybe it is true.

I am not trying to dash your hopes, though: you can still try various treatments but don't expect a miracle.
