I’m not anti-doctors, I just happened to see one who never even came fully into the room. Nope, he just stood in the door and wrote the Rx. Since I’ve had such good luck, I’ve gotten more and more into herbal and holistic healing. I believe that both “modern” medicine and common sense herbs play an equal role in health care.

A change in diet can make the largest impact. I saw the greatest improvement in my skin after switching to real foods, avoiding anything processed, and making sure to get enough fats (such as avocado and coconut oil) into my diet. It can be pricey, but also seeing a naturopath can be very helpful. My naturopath had me get a full blood work up and determined which minerals or nutrients I was low in (I otherwise never would have known). Hope you can find a good balance.
Cystic acne is the most severe form of common acne (acne vulgaris). Those afflicted have a predisposition for their acne to form deep, tender inflammatory fluid-filled cysts that tend to heal with scarring.
Wear breathable, clean, loose clothes. Ensure any material touching your back is clean and, if possible, made of primarily natural fibers such as cotton. Try to avoid tight-fitting clothing. Finally, the clothes should be laundered regularly–preferably after each wearing.
Hello, Ann in NY. All I did was saturate the end of a cotton swab with ACV and apply it to the lesion in the morning and again in the evening (after washing my face). In the morning, I just allowed the ACV to dry before applying moisturizer and makeup. That’s it! I hope it works for you, too!
Environ is a great skin care option. can be a little expensive. Its a south african brand. But think curing acne is from the inside out anyway. So good basics like neutrogena should work for cleansing and moisturising, while you focus on fixing from the inside.

Claire, you are so smart! We are into natural cures A LOT in our household. TeaTree oil works the best for my acne. Who ever was having problems with cinnamon, I think you either screwed up with your ratios or you are allergic to cinnamon. You are greatly appreciated for your help!
One such anti-inflammatory, isotretinoin (better known as Accutane), is a relative of vitamin A. It cleared up my own skin after nearly a decade of severe acne, amazingly. As Kim describes it, “People initially didn’t understand how isotretinoin or retinoids worked, but we now know that they can modulate inflammation.” Still the drug is not without its issues. It did work a miracle for me, but I also endured months of very dry skin, had to get a number of blood tests, and could not drink alcohol (while in college). Since Michigan’s former Representative Bart Stupak’s testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee in 2009 and blamed isotretinoin for the tragic suicide of his 17-year-old son, restrictions on prescribing the drug have become tight.

Sulfur has been used in treating acne for thousands of years, and in the 1950s, it became available in a foam product designed for direct application to the skin. Can sulfur work on acne? Sulfur dries out the skin, consequently drying out and shrinking pimples. It tends to be gentler than Benzoyl Peroxide treatments, and is less likely to dehydrate the skin, which would result in further irritation.
