directorsuwan/ShutterstockOral antibiotics work to kill P. acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. Some antibiotics—like those in the tetracycline family—are also anti-inflammatory, which helps improve redness and swelling. Results can be seen in as little as two weeks. And since insurance companies recognize antibiotics as a medical treatment, they typically will cover at least part of the cost. Don’t miss the best face mask for your skin type—including acne-prone.
High-quality protein foods: Grass-fed beef, organic chicken, wild-caught fish and free-range eggs are high in protein and nutrients and help balance blood sugar, a key component in the fight against cystic acne.
Bathe or shower immediately after sweating to remove excess oils and debris before they can clog pores. If you are unable to shower immediately following a workout, carry cleansing wipes with you to use on the areas that you most often have acne breakouts.

Also be aware of the 3 stooges that appear in virtually all processed food and drink. Aspartame, MSG and high fructose corn syrup. They are excitotoxins which play havoc on your digestive, neuro and endocrine systems… Which could manifest as acne breakouts.

GillianVann/ShutterstockPhotodynamic therapy controls resistant, hard-to-treat cystic acne via a treatment that combines application of a 20 percent solution of aminolevulinic acid with light to target and destroy acne activity. “And for some patients, with more severe cases, we can also expose them to red light in the same sitting,” says Dr. Weinstein. This procedure is best performed monthly. “There is about a week of downtime—in terms of the redness and possible peeling after treatment—but the skin clears up pretty quickly.” When photodynamic therapy is done routinely, or in combination with other acne treatments, patients can expect an 85 percent reduction in acne. Unfortunately, it’s not usually covered by insurance and can range from $400 to $700 per treatment.
Evidence suggests that aloe vera may be effective in treating minor skin infections, burns, cuts, as well as sebaceous cysts, pimples, and acne. These therapeutic effects can be attributed to the polysaccharides, anthraquinones, mannans, and lectins that are found in aloe vera. Applying aloe vera gel on the face and other acne-affected areas may thus be helpful.
