  • I was told to drink aloe vera juice twice a day and buffer your face with tea tree oil. I"m going to try it since im 25 and still get acne! ugh! I heard it works every time. I've yet to test it out though.

  • Sea salt and colloidal silver soap

    Wash twice daily with the soap after a sea salt facial massage. Exfoliates and kills bacteria. Cheap. Hypooalergenic.

  • Most facial products (even the ones meant for acne) contain petrochemicals, parabens, preservatives, fragrances, etc. that will irritate skin and cause problems. Switch to healthier alternatives. Avoid dairy. Make sure you're getting enough zinc in your diet as adequate zinc is required for trouble-free skin.

  • agreed with getting enough zinc. and i use lemons. it's the only thing that has worked for me. i cut a lemon once a day, squeeze the juice into a small cup and use a cotton pad to wipe it on my skin. it took about two weeks to see a difference but it was a huge difference. i do it after my shower in the morning and before i go to bed. if drys out your skin until your skin adjusts to it. other than that it's amazing.

  • I've been using mark.'s new anti-acne line and it is working really well. I didn't get any PMS breakouts like I normally do.
