Serious stuff: Today's medicine can always clear acne, but I'd urge you to be open to 21st century methods as well as "natural" / "folk". Visible acne is a sign of poor self-care and will interfere with your being able to get the job you want. Nothing's more "natural" than the vitamin-A-based / retinoic acid derivatives (topical, isotretinoin) and antibiotics like tetracycline that can clear you. ...Read more

I begin with topical Clindamycin and generally have good results; tetracycline (if you can take it) or Erythromycin systemically for the rough cases; a dermatologist can prescribe a retinoic acid derivative that's strong but reasonably safe. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probiotics contain bacteria that normally inhabit the human digestive tract, usually lactobacillus or bifidobacterium, 2x/day w/meals during treatment. ...Read more
