How to use kinohimitsu acne aid regimen?

How to use kinohimitsu acne aid regimen?

This isn't science: From its ads, this is a pricey drink containing fermented yeast and hydrolyzed collagen ("birds nests"). I have no reason to think it will touch your acne or provide any other benefit. They make other weird concoctions that they claim will make old ladies' breasts bigger, heal men's facial scars, etc. Try something real. If benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you in 2 weeks, get with your physician. ...Read more

What approaches work best to lighten acne scars with home remedies?

Hyperpigmentation: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation may not respond well to hydroquinone (hq). Vitamin k oxides are purported to have some effect but I am not convinced. Kojic acid, licorice extract, bilberry extracts may help. I suggest trying test spots first. Use of "peel and bleach" creams (hq +retina +steroid) may be effective but require strict sunblock. ...Read more

Is dr. Larry wilson's protocol a successful program?

Uncertain: I disagree with some aspects of recommended treatments such as coffee enemas for detoxification purposes. I find no convincing studies proving benefit. In general, a working liver and healthy kidneys take care of detoxification quite admirably.
