Mary asks…

i want something that doesnt have alot of chemicals in it and it wont make my face oily? i just want a wash that will prevent and get rid of redness nad acne.

There isn’t one! Nothing you can put on your face can get rid of your acne. All it can do is treat the symptoms. The best treatment for severe acne (or ANY kind of acne for that matter) stops acne from where it starts.

Or so I’ve read lol! I’ve been looking for an alternative to all the chemicals as well. There are a bunch of new ebooks that help eliminate acne at it’s source and they all use natural methods.

I found this site that has ranked them according to users. Everyone is different so you need to find the one that helps you. I’m trying “Acne No More” mostly because it was ranked #1. It’s not a quick fix, but hopefully a final fix! It all seems great so far, the reasoning behind it all makes sense. I’ve known that my acne was hormonal since I had clear skin during my pregnancy when your hormones are all messed up. Which is opposite of most women who usually get worse acne while they’re pregnant. Anyway, everyone is different!

Hope one of these methods will help you and me too :) Good luck!

How did you get rid of your acne?

I’m 18 yrs old, and have had acne for about a year and a half. I never had a lot of zits before, but the summer before my junior year I completely broke out and now can’t get rid of it…

I’ve tried everything, even the pill (Yaz) and have been on it four months with no results.

How did you get rid of your acne?

I know you’ve been searching high and low looking for the best way to get rid of acne and you just can’t seem to find any serious answers. You’ve tried benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and maybe you’ve gone so far as to try homemade methods like baking soda or aspirin.

Whatever the case, you’ve been sadly misinformed and have been going about curing your acne in the wrong manner. But it’s not your fault! The sheer amount of terribly poor information about acne is downright frustrating, especially since there is so much good information out there that can actually help you get cured…forever. No more daily routines, no more worrying about new pimples, just clear skin for the rest of your life.

Now maybe you’re scoffing a bit at my claim. Well think about this; why do you think the best way to get rid of acne has anything to do with your skin? True, pimples and breakouts are something you can see there, but did you know they ultimately have nothing to do with your skin? Acne is a problem that begins inside your body and it’s simply a sign that something is wrong.

No, seriously.

Think back to your adolescent years (or current years if you’re a teen still). What’s always cited as the cause for acne? Hormones from puberty. Fair enough, right? What about girls having their period or pregnant women, why do they get acne? Hormones again, right? So why do we keep putting all this stuff on our skin?

While it is true that treatments like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid do help acne by getting rid of dead skin or controlling the bacteria that causes acne, wouldn’t you rather just deal with the problems that cause you to have to much dead skin or bacteria in the first place? If you did that, you wouldn’t have that dead skin or bacteria problem anymore. In other words, you wouldn’t have acne anymore.

Acne isn’t something that is normal or is to be expected. It isn’t something that we should just have to deal with. Acne is a sign that something inside of us has gone wrong. The overabundance of hormones in our systems is what’s causing the acne in the first place. But if everything was working as it was supposed to be, our body would be able to get rid of these hormones in a timely manner, avoiding any further problems.

So why doesn’t our body get rid of these hormones? That is the answer behind the best way to get rid of acne. To really water down the answer, it really comes down to our diets. Something like 90% of the average diet these days is made up of processed food. Our body has just become sluggish and overloaded as it tries to deal with problems of not getting the whole, natural food that it needs. It instead has to deal with all the chemicals in our foods nowadays.

What’s more is that when we eat our processed food, we go through a cycle of extreme insulin release to keep our blood sugar from getting to high and killing us. Then we go through an extreme cycle of androgen release to keep our blood sugar from getting to low and killing us. These massive insulin/androgen cycles cause our skin to make to much oil and die off more rapidly than normal, leading to more out breaks!

The best way to get rid of acne ultimately lies in the fact that you must address the real, internal problems that are causing your breakouts.

How to make an appointment with a Dermatologist?

How do I make an appointment with a dermatologist for my mild acne and people who have gone to a dermatologist can anyone get prescribed accutane?

admin answers:

Depends on your health insurance, really. Some allow you to contact a dermatologist covered by your plan directly, with others you have to have a referral from your primary care doctor. Check with your health plan.

If you aren’t insured, and will be paying out-of-pocket, you can call and make an appointment with the dermatologist whenever you like. Just let the staff know upfront that you’ll be paying out-of-pocket. They can help you keep costs low (like prescribing generic medications rather than more pricey brand names.)

Also, you don’t necessarily have to see a dermatologist, especially if your acne is mild. Most family doctors are experienced with treating acne, so you may want to call your regular doctor first. Sometimes it takes a long time to get an appointment with a dermatologist, so your doctor may give you a treatment to use while your waiting.

It’s very rare that Accutane is prescribed for mild acne. Because it comes with a huge list of potential of serious side effects, it is usually only given to those with severe inflammatory or cystic acne, and only after all other treatment options have proven ineffective.

A quick list of the side effects of Accutane (which is now sold as generic isotretinoin) include:
* Dry skin, chapped lips, dry eyes
* Fatigue
* Thinning hair
* Nausea and vomiting
* Photosensitivity
* Miscarriage and birth defects (in children whose mothers took the drug while pregnant)
* High blood triglycerides

For mild acne, a better choice would be a topical treatment like Retin-A, Differin, BenzaClin, etc. They come with less side effects, are applied rather than ingested, and are very effective.

Your doctor will tell you which acne medications will work best for you. Just remember, it takes a few months to see results with any acne medication, and you might have to try several before you find one that really works for you.

Good luck!
