Acne problem, can you help me?

Question by BGFP44 B: Acne problem, can you help me?
I just started breaking out. I always had good skin. Now I don’t know what’s going on. I’ve tried products to help it but it just makes it worse. Then I thought the biggest thing I could do was proactive. I read really good reviews on their site but when I went to amazon they were really bad. Is there anything you could suggest that would help?
Yes, I’m 18. Ok, I’ll try it. Thank you.

    I went 24 years before I ever had any kind of skin problems. I went to the doctor on campus and they prescribed some Retin-A and it cleared my skin right up. If you have insurance, you should go to your doctor and they can help you really clear your skin up.

    Ninety five percent of the people who use conventional acne treatments get rid of their acne temporarily and sometimes their acne ends up worse than when they started. Curing acne can never be achieved by tackling one of the many factors responsible for acne. If you’ve ever tried to cure your acne using a one-dimensional treatment like antibiotics or even detox diets and failed it’s probably because you tackled only one aspect of the disease.

    The Acne, skin care and drug industries are filled with snake oil marketing vampires that are getting rich by preying on our desperation, hopes and dreams. The second thing we discovered is that almost everyone is dead wrong in the way they try to control and treat their acne. It’s a fact; the methods we’re probably using right now to clear our acne might be severely damaging our internal system and your health.

    Most of us have tried: Accutane, Antibiotics, Zenmed, Proactive, Oratin, Benezoyl peroxide, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, macrobiotics, reflexology, Chinese Medicine, vegetarianism, the Wai diet, magnetic therapy, the mucus-less diet, blood type diet, went to psychiatrists, homeopaths and even healers…Yet we Still Suffered From Severe Acne.

    Needless to say most of these methods, treatments and so called cures either made our skin condition and our acne worse and filled us with heart breaking disappointment and frustration or they worked only short term, and acne came back with a vengeance. Some of these treatments simply didn’t have any effect what so ever on our skin condition.

    The only way you can ever cure your acne is from within by listening to what your body is trying to tell you, work with it and free yourself by curing your acne holistically, just like i do.
