Lori! Your tips have helped me improve my skin sooo much! I first found your website in may of this year, when I was suffering with 6 months of chronic insomnia before my wedding (still don’t know what caused it…stress, work, moving and traveling a ton?) but your tips about magnesium and body brushing helped a lot! I don’t have insomnia anymore. I had terrible skin as a teenager (after reading your blog, I now know so many things that could have triggered it! At the time I was baffled, because I thought I ate healthy, played tennis and ran every day, and was thin…but I was wrong! I definitely did not get enough of the right nutrients. My acne has been better as an adult, I’m now 25, but still not great. HOWEVER 2 weeks after following your tips, especially the cod liver oil, probiotics, and balancing the PH of my face, along with natural makeup, my skin has NEVER looked better!!! THANK YOU!! Even the couple of acne scars I was left with are fading! Coconut oil makes the skin on my face break out, so I use grape seed oil. My favorite mask is cinnamon and grape seed oil, I gently rub that over my face for a few minutes, and it gets rid of my blackheads and increases my face circulation. I follow it with witch hazel, though I want to try ACV now! Once again, thank you soooooooooo much! I also use baking soda and castile soap for pretty much everything in the house! My husband thinks I’m crazy, haha, but I got his mom hooked on your blog too. I have a long way to go, but you’re an amazing inspiration!
The increased breakouts can happen initially due to releasing all of the trapped oil, toxins, etc. They should decrease, but like any healing crisis, things may get worse a bit before they get better.
Usually, people tend to develop cystic acne in their teens or early 20s. But, at times, it can even occur in somebody as young as 10 or as old as 50. Cystic acne is a common problem among men, but women get it too.
Ladies.. or guys who use makeup… Clean your makeup brushes!!! I used to get acne on my chin/cheeks and had suggested by my derm to make sure I clean brushes once a week. I take all my brushes and wash them with a basic soap or cleaner. It is amazing all the dirt, oil and makeup that washes right away in the sink. To think I was putting that back in my skin everyday. I also after cleaning, lightly brush the top of the brushes over rubbing alchohol. This makes sure any bacteria, or germs in there gets killed if the wash didn’t get them. After the first week of doing this, I had improvment right away. Def suggest to all those who use blush and concealer brushes!
For me i believe you can’t take acne away with home remedies some might work for some people but not others. I have tried everything and nothing worked except this bottle of Black Head Clearing Scrub it works for acne to and you can buy it any drug store:P
For all those teenagers…DO NOT COVER WITH MAKEUP. Honetly, it cloggs your pores, stops the air getting to your skin, and makes you look worse(and stupid). If you are worried all your friends will laugh if you stop wearing makeup, then they arnt your friends, and you can laugh right back when your skin gets better and their doesn’t. Also, drinking lots of water helps.
However, there is a slight difference between facial and back acne, which means the way in which we treat infected areas should also differ. ‘Back acne is very similar to facial acne in its symptoms and causes, but the treatment of it does differ,’ says Andrea Craig, National Educator for Murad Skincare. ‘The skin on your back has larger pores than facial pores which means they are far more likely to become clogged. This is why it’s best to look for products that are specifically designed for the body to treat bacne’.
Hale says exercise (and specifically SoulCycle) is her secret to managing stress. And the star has noticed a link between clearing her mind and clearer skin. She’s on the right track, says Dr. Graf: “The endorphins that exercise releases can decrease stress hormones in your body.”
Contrary to popular belief, acne-prone skin still needs to be moisturized. Using topicals that focus on drying out the skin tricks the skin into producing even more oil, thereby further contributing to clogged pores and more acne.

Avoid touching your face. Dirt and bacteria on your hands can clog your pores and make acne worse if you constantly touch your face. If your skin feels irritated from acne, use a gentle, oil-free daily facial wipe to remove excess dirt and calm your skin.

Some oral antibiotics can cause birth defects. Women on these antibiotics who are sexually active must use contraception. They need to make absolutely sure they do not become pregnant either during treatment or for one month after treatment.
Letting the sweat and dirt sit on your skin after a workout can be a big contributor to back acne. as soon as you can after a workout. You should also wash those sweaty workout clothes between sweat sessions.
Acne will sometimes go away on its own with time, especially if you get acne as a teenager or during a stressful period of your life. But if you’re suffering from ongoing cystic acne then it’s best to visit a doctor for help, since this usually points to a bigger problem. Big, inflamed, painful cysts under your skin indicate that an underlying health problem may be to blame, such as PCOS, a thyroid problem, etc. Talk to your doctor about potential causes and ways to treat acne holistically depending on your unique situation.
Honey and cinnamon mask – This is great for preventing breakouts as they both have anti-inflammatory properties and for lightening scars. You will have to look for different guides on how to mix them though as cinnamon can be harsh on the skin if applied too much, even with the honey! My mixture was 1:3, so you can try that too.
Vitamin A is known to play the role of an antioxidant and so it is helpful in getting rid of harmful free radicals that cause acne. There are several foods that contain a high amount of vitamin A and they include eggs, dairy products and fortified cereals. Health experts have stated that a deficiency of vitamin B5 is known to be one of the most common causes of acne. This is due to the fact that vitamin B5 is required to maintain the proper levels of the hormones in the body. It is beneficial in regulating stress as well. Vitamin B5 is found mostly in foods such as peanuts, soybeans, liver as well as split peas.
Drinking quality liquids also can help with acne. Consume less soda pop, coffee, energy drinks and artificially sweetened drinks. Drink more water, green tea, and herbal tea. Water helps your body to flush out toxins. Keeping well hydrated with water will help your body to keep the toxins moving out!
I don’t mean to sound like a commercial, but that apple cider vinegar toner changed my skin. After just a couple weeks my skin was softer, my pores were smaller, my scars were faded, my skin tone was the most even it had ever been, and there wasn’t a pimple to be found on my face. Not to mention the fact that my apple cider vinegar toner was natural, organic and made from one ingredient that I already had in my kitchen cupboard. I tossed all those cleansers, creams and pills in the trash and haven’t looked back.
Another tip, do not try to pop pimples, zits, spots, whatever you fancy. There are multiple kinds of pimples, zits, or spots. The most dangerous kind are cysts. Cysts are red around the base and white at the top. These hurt and can very easily cause scars.
Another major factor to take into consideration is your lifestyle. If you’re overly stressed, it’s likely that your skin will show it. “When you’re under stress, your brain sends messages to the adrenal gland, which releases hormones that turn up oil production in the skin,” says Jeanette Graf, MD, a dermatologist in Great Neck, New York. “This excess oil interacts with your skin’s natural bacteria, resulting in acne.”
Hydrogenated oils – Causes oily skin and are one of the main causes of acne. Hydrogenated oils can be found in foods like pizza and in packaged foods that contain soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil, and vegetable oil.
