Best Natural Remedy For Acne
Acne products: I recommend dhc oil cleanser (amazing product for all skin types) and queen esther firming serum and awaken younger cream. These latter are excellent moisturizers with hydrolonic acid that doesn't irritate, but work thoroughly. Proper use of salicylic acid (white heads), benzoyl peroxide (blackheads), topical and/or oral antibiotics (pustular), and retinoids (retin-a or tretinoin) for control. ...Read more
Benzoyl peroxide: Forget 'natural'. Acne is a serious, chronic, incurable disease unrelated to hygiene or lifestyle. It's a grave personal and professional liability. If topical benzoyl peroxide in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. If you have scars, you're probably a candidate for isotretinoin. ...Read more

Scientific Rx: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related illness that can keep you from getting the job you want. You do yourself a disservice if you insist on a "natural" / "herbal" / "holistic" / "pop" remedy.

The vitamin a analogues and antibiotics that actually work against acne are straight form mother nature.Tea tree oil, the one good anti-acne botanical, is an estrogen that's made guys grow breasts. ...Read more

Forgive muy franknes: You are doing yourself, and those who care about you, a grave disservice if you do not accept evidence-based, 21st century treatment. Cystic acne usually requires isotretinoin. It is not for the faint-hearted, but is preferable to a life with facial scars to remind you and everyone else that you declined effective treatment. ...Read more

Natural Approaches: Hello, Acne is powerful. While isotretinoin is not your only option, natural remedies have proven themselves to simply be weaker than their chemical competitors. Think about organic detergents and soaps. Same deal, they are just weaker and may only work for less resistant situations.

You owe it to yourself to fix this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

OTC Rx: Benzoyl peroxide is the only over-the-counter product that is recognized as effective for acne; a few folks have reported success with tea-tree oil. You'd do well to add some prescription rx in consultation with your physician; topical clindmycin is a good choice. Dermatologists have stronger stuff.
