Ok here goes. I had very severe acne as a teenager which has left me with scars and pits in my skin.

If the scarring is mild then chemical peels could help her though she may need a few.

Is the scarring is too bad then laser treatment is the way to go, but it is very expensive. If you are in the UK it is not available on the NHS unless you can prove you are psychologically damaged by it. It is quite extreme though as the skin is red raw for a while until it heals. I was told it would improve the condition of my skin by about 30-40%. I can't afford it though so that's it. They also won't treat anyone who smokes coz of the higher risk of infection.

I had 2 dermabrasions (scraping off the top layers of skin) in the past which did help quite a bit but these are not done anymore and have been superseded by laser.

There is a special make up you can buy (expensive but she might be able to get it on prescription in the UK) which will completely cover the scars. It even covered up mine and the pits. I found out about it my asking at my surgery.
And it worked for me. Hope this worked for you also.

"Supplementation with Lactobacillus rhamnosus SP1 normalises skin expression of genes implicated in insulin signalling and improves adult acne" (-32 %).
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27596801

After 8 weeks, inflammatory acne lesions were reduced by 65.3% on the LFCO (Lactobacillus-fermented Chamaecyparis obtusa) side and by 38.2% on the TTO (tea tree oil) side.

There's a bacterium (Nitrosomonas eutropha) in nature that usually lives on skin of animals. It's claimed that it kills P. acnes (and also bacteria that make your sweat smell bad). Modern/western people don't usually have this bacterium because of soaps and shampoos that are lethal to it. There's an expensive spray you can buy to re-infect yourself with N. eutropha. "A regime of concentrated AO+ caused a hundredfold decrease of Propionibacterium acnes". Makes a lot of sense to me but the spray is expensive. I guess you could stop using shampoos and soaps and go swim in a lake/ocean and roll over in some dirt to get the bacterium cheaper.

Studies show that antioxidants (selenium, N-acetylcysteine etc.), EPA (from fish oil), Vitamin D3 and some minerals (chromium, zinc) help (but require a few months of daily usage to see full results). Sleeping probably helps too (no light at night or even in the evening) due to melatonin (which is a powerful antioxidant also), might also require exposure to bright light during daytime (to suppress daytime melatonin production, keep in mind that artificial lights are usually very low lumens compared to sunlight, like 10-fold difference).

Spotted skin, scars and acne marks make you feel embarrassed and hurt self-esteem as well. Many of us opt for cosmetics and other products to get rid of acne residues. There are many home remedies which have proven their effects on lightening these skin marks. Tomato and Lemon Juice: Take a “fresh tomato” and make its paste. Mix it well with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste on face for around 20 minutes and rinse it off gently with water after 20 minutes. Pulp of Aloe Vera: Let the pulp from Aloe Vera dry for 5 minutes in sun. Add 6-8 drops of lemon juice to it and apply on the affected area and face for 15 minutes. Onions: Cut the onion into small pieces. Grind those pieces and separate the juice from the residue. Apply the juice for few minutes on the affected skin and rinse after 10 minutes. Cucumber and Milk: Make a paste out of cucumber, milk and a bit of lime extract. It will serve as a face mask. Apply thoroughly and wash it with warm water after 10 minutes. You must consider a visit to dermatologist in severity of the condition. But, these home remedies are proven effective in getting rid of acne marks, black spots, pimples and dark spots.

In my late 20's, when my acne would not go away as it should, someone suggested zinc tablets (30mg, or even 50mg).. I tried zinc, 1-2 tablets a day, and it worked. Over about two weeks, acne, whiteheads and blackheads disappeared. Combine zinc with regular face washing for best results, since I have oily skin.

I started getting acne really early in life. Like 9 or something. Neither of my parents had it so I was kind of alone in my battle. I think my mom thought of it as a rite of passage or something because she really didn't seem too concerned by it. As it got worse, around 12, she finally started to notice and ask some friends what she should do. One of her friends told her about this company called Ninja Skincare. At the time, they had a local clinic so we got an appointment and I went in to meet with Pamela, the owner. She is this fun-loving ball of energy. I remember thinking she was larger than life even back then. But man - she put me on her line of products and guaranteed that they would work or our money back. I started on it, my acne improved almost instantly. By the time I entered high school, it was like puberty had already passed or something. My mom put my 2 younger brothers on it immediately and they never really even had a breakout in highschool. I still use it - 15 years later. And I tell everyone I can to try it. They still have that money back guarantee too! haha

"So I've seen 4 different dermatologists and all of them told me diet doesn't affect acne."

I came here because I saw the survey that said lots of people ate the paleo diet and said it helped acne. I am far over the "acne" age but after eliminating 1) dairy; 2) wheat; 3) food additives and essentially eating paleo the past 2 years not only am I at normal weight, good health, lots of energy - my SKIN LOOKS FANTASTIC. It is easy to care for, no problems.

Those doctors are ... well it's not the only thing they don't know about.

does it found a premanent cure for acne !!!

I have low glutathione and retinol levels according to spectracell. Repletion of these may decrease acne significantly.

Wash your face with mild soap and water. The logic is to not remove the dirt (as the majority of acne-inflicted person perceive) but to remove the plugs on the skin pores, which may be a combination of dead skin cells, bacteria and hardened sebum. Although dirt is not truly the cause of acne, it may contribute to further infection through its interaction with skin debris and particles and extra oil in the skin.

cure acne tips

Use Dr. Boudreaux's Butt Paste (zinc cream) or Margarite Zinc Cream (slightly tinted).

Use a zinc soap.

I've always been a light eater, 3 small meals a day with usually less than 1500 calories consumed each day. The past few weeks I've decided to start putting on some weight and have been consuming a high protein diet of around 3000 calories per day and my skin has improved greatly.

I've tried many diets to combat acne but never a high protein one, this seems to be working.

My diet has been very clean, absolutely no takeaways, sweets, crisps or chocolate. But my diet has always been low or absent of junk and I still got acne so it seems high protein; at least for now, works for me.

In addition to the diet observations in the post, getting adequate sleep is very important for me. Less sleep, more stress the next day, pimples the day after.

So I've seen 4 different dermatologists and all of them told me diet doesn't affect acne.

But, I call BULLSHIT!


You are what you eat; Just think about that for a minute!
If you want me to get all scientific, than pm me.

Btw, fuck agriculture!

Helminthic therapy completely eliminated the minor remaining acne problems I had.

Re: Paleo Diet — I went on the Paleo diet a few years back when my skin was constantly breaking out. I had just been to see an immunobiologist who put me on an elimination diet - I could only eat meat and eggs for two weeks! But then gradually introduce two vegetables at a time every week thereafter. After about 5 weeks I kinda skipped the rest of this program - I was dying for a bit of variety in my food, however I had noticed within the first two weeks that my skin cleared up - it was obvious to me that something in my diet was causing my skin problems.

The Paleo diet was a natural progression for me, as I had just discovered the diet and the recommendations from the immunobiologist were very similar.

I had to cut out chocolate, cake, soft drink (soda), fried foods - all the things I loved, but I was rewarded with beautiful skin that lasted quite some months. However gradually over time, I started having fried/sweet foods. I do get a few breakouts from time to time, so I'm thinking about going back on the Paleo diet again.

The benefit of going on the Paleo diet has been the discovery that soy seems to be the worst food for me - if I have too much chocolate that contains soy (isoalates etc) I will get cystic acne on my chin. (Even if I use lip balm that contains soy oil, same thing happens).

The side effect from the diet is that it is very difficult to follow in a modern society. Most take away foods will come with rice or pasta. You usually have to pay more to have the meat without the grain component. Restaurant dining is a little easier, though sometimes it is a compromise - not always possible to find a tasty option on the menu that is grain and dairy free. If you want to eat away from home your meals will have to be a little bland unfortunately, unless you are organised enough to make tasty Paleo meals at home.

Re: Birth control pill / Balance hormones — How does one even do this?

Re: Isotretinoin (Roaccutane, Accutane) — Decreased Testosterone

Re: Washing face — I feel it important to draw up the question of frequency. If washing of the face works surely there's a variable of time (frequency, time of day, etc.).

For everyone who recommends this treatment, have you determined if night washing is more or less effective than morning washing, is washing once a day better or worse than twice, etc.

Personally I've found it better to shower in the morning and apply my products (a benzoyl based cream and moisturizer) afterwards than to do the same at night. This may be due to facial-drag on my pillow, or perhaps (the scientific terms escape me currently) a mechanism of skin repair which I hear takes place most often when asleep.

Of course we may see that it is all a matter of personal genetics/living locations (humidities)/etc. thus the more we can get to respond, the more likely we may be to find a trend in effect.

Eager to hear your input.

Re: Toxic diet/lifestyle — When I eat something of low food quality such as fast food, unhealthy oiled food etc. WIthin 24 hours I will often have acne on my face, neck and or back. I consistently do not have acne while eating whole natural foods.

Re: Dr. Hauschka Natural Skin Care — I've read that most soaps (even stuff for acne) remove all the natural oil, but that actually your skin needs the oil to stay balanced. Removing the oil makes your skin produce more oil to replace the stuff you washed off. Apparently Dr. Hauscka's stuff doesn't do that. Which makes sense, given how much better my face is after switching to his products. Specifically, I use the cleansing creme to wash and the quince cream to moisturize. Your mileage may vary, depending on your skin type (I have combination) Various doctors all told me to use special cleansers for acne (such as cetaphil) that dried out my face and left it irritated and sore, especially in the winter. No matter what I used, even normal soap, it was all the same. I had dry skin and acne. It was the worst. Dr H. is also all biodynamic (which is like one step above organic) and doesn't contain chemicals (which pretty much all other acne products do, which is probably why they make things worse!) so you aren't exposing your body to harmful things. I think even that made a big difference. My mother and sister - and even my boyfriend - have switched too because they've been so impressed.

Re: Avoid touching face — I visited my doctor about a week ago and he asked about the "lesions" on my face. I said that they were pimples and I tried to take care of them by using this 3-step system that is similar to Proactive. He simply told me not to touch my face. I tried this out for a week and it worked! I even stopped using the wash and it continues to improve. I realized that I was constantly touching my face and I also use a keyboard and mouse ALL day. In addition, I have started using Clorox wipes on my keyboard and mouse weekly.
