Yesterday, 11:49 PM

I suffered from acne for about 11 years.  8 of those years it actually affected my life for the worst. I tried all the OTC crap and the natural stuff everyones blabbing about like a banana on your face while you hang upside down from monkey bars at the nearest play ground. Nothing worked. It still upsets me from time to time because of what I could have done and learned in that time. But as I look at it I would never be able to help anyone like I hope I can.

 

I havent had acne problems in 10 years. Hell , I rarely use any cleansers anymore.  I will pretty much stick to my guns on this solution because anything less would be 10 steps back and I would die trying to help at least one person understand this. Because I know others feel like its killing them or that they want to die some days. I mean I wanted to die but somehow instead I ended up  willing to die for this realization... until I gave up. So I will just sum up some 6 principles to healing that came out about from the miracle I had. 

 

Just a few facts that I learned on my own about acne that no doctor could ever tell you because he has probably never had to heal his own acne. (Plus, he would be out of business.)

 

First before you read this just stop whining. Stop looking for someone to make it go away for you. Its your acne. You're the one who created it ,you're the one prolonging it. Trying to whine about it on here and not take anyones advice that has put an end to the problem  even though you "want a solution" is  basically saying you want it. To paint a better picture its like paying a personal trainer to get in shape but instead of you lifting the weights you want him to lift them. LOL.

 

 

 

1. Acne is not out there trying to get you. It is not a separate entity from you. It is an extension of you. It starts in your mind ( like any other thing).

Acne thoughts + emotion( "I can't stand acne!") = Acne

2. Since it is in your mind it is created by your thoughts.And since it starts with a thought it can be ended with...no thought.

Acne thoughts -  acne emotion( I can't stand acne)= Healing 

3. You have an emotional attachment to acne. " I can't stand acne".  It must be let go. Forgiven. But first let me emphasize any form of medicine or naturopathic home remedy, or no remedy, you wish to take has to go through this process to heal. 

 

Forgiveness is what heals.  Right now you're at "F@ck you acne". when you need to be at "Acne is ok. " Then eventually you will get to "Who's acne?"

 

When you cut your finger most of the time there is no grudge with the cut , so you let it heal. Its not "F@ck you cut! or F@ck you kitchen knife(well sometimes but only for a minute hehe).  When you make up with a friend its not "I forgive you for breaking my Justin Bieber but when you get a chance burn in hell"  Its either "I forgive you "or it what I call " No need to forgive because, I was never upset." You simply cannot have peace without letting yourself have it. 

 

4. You have to change your mind about acne.  You think it makes you ugly and unattractive. But since  your so wrapped up in yourself,  you've never bothered to look around and realize theres really no such thing as ugly. There is nothing unbearable to look at.

Think about it. Take a look around at people with it and without it. Does acne change how you feel about them? The ones that  do have it can you tell it bothers them? Can you tell how it makes them feel at all? Usually not. And why is that? Because its all in their head! If you can't perceive a problem with your eyes then it must be in the mind, right?

 

5. Stop resisting the acne. Let it be there. Remember its there because you cant stand it. So for now on tell yourself its ok to have it.

Because it does not matter. ITs like bird shit on a car. Its not going to change how you feel about a car. It would never keep you from buying a car you love. You'd have to scour a car just to see it anyway. If it was a ferrari you wouldn't even care!  The problem is taken care of you just need to get out of the way because you have been in the way the whole time by caring about acne.

 

6.The BEST ACTION to take to release  your attachment to it is to affirm : "I don't care if it stays or goes,  I'm not going to do this to myself anymore. I going to live my life and be happy."  Then start living your life like someone who doesn't have it. Stop putting all this crap on your face. pick one cleanser use it no more than twice a day if you need that to make you feel at ease.  Stop looking for zits in the bathroom for an hour. Stop picking. Stop hiding. People that don't have it don't do that crap. So stop taking it so seriously. Laugh at yourself once in awhile and spend time trying to always be laughing or doing something you enjoy.  

 

Keep in mind if you took Accutane or something and it went away, your attitude towards it would be different. You will eventually feel "safe" but it will just take longer and cost more. Eventually you may even forget your grudge and approve of yourself and actually be happy but only conditionally. You'll never know unconditional happiness or love. 

So to conclude if you can't understand at least one of these then saddle up for a long ride on a road to nowhere and good luck with your next battle. Acne's cousin cancer.

 

This is amazing, COSMICROCK, thank you.



On another note, I don't think these Do's and Dont's should be so cut and dry. AND I don't think praising Paula Begoun is very helpful to everyone either. I have nothing against Paula, and I think she's pretty good at what she does, but I don't see eye to eye with her on many of her reviews/opinions.

 

Everyone's skin is different so what's "bad" for someone might be "good" for another. If our skin was all the same, every single person in this world would be acne free. That or we'd all have it.

I have stopped all use of chemicals and preservatives in my skin products and my skin has made a very healthy recovery. I use RESTORZ handmade soap ( and tamanu oil in very small amts) and this works great for me. I posted earlier so if this post twice excuse the double post. Find them on Google. I found out about them on this site years ago. Happy skin to you.

Has anyone explored acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for Acne?

 

I would like to share me experience and knowledge, perhaps you can avoid harmful chemicals and perhaps your acne is not at all caused by something in your skin.

 

Actually, a lot of issue is with digestion and the intestinal tract, but not many western doctors will treat your entire body, western ideas are sometimes very superficial and only want to give you some cream or expensive prescription.

 

This is a treatment protocol and if you find an acupuncturist and give this to them, they can try it with you. 

 

 

Acne Vulgaris

 

Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammation of hair follicle and sebaceous glands which is a common problem of adolescence. It is mainly caused by hormonal disturbances, improper diet and chronic constipation. Clinically, it is marked by papulae, nodules and acne on the face. 

 

Acupuncture and herbal medicine are effective in treatment of acne vulgaris. In some cases it can be cured by our treatment. During treatment, the patient should be advised to keep the bowel movement regular to prevent constipation.

Avoiding harmful products is a MUST for people who have acne.  One of the biggest mistakes that people with acne make is using harmful products that contain harsh chemicals that actually irritate the skin, making acne worse.  Personally, I avoid BP at all costs.  It dries out my skin and causes more breakouts.

 

If you have acne you ALWAYS want to use products made for sensitive skin, because chances are, if you have acne, you have sensitive skin by default.  Products for sensitive skin typically don't have harsh ingredients while acne treatment products like Clean & Clear, Proactiv, Clearasil, etc. are full of ingredients that can do more harm than good.

 

I've switched to only all-natural remedies in treating my acne.  This includes things like coconut oil, honey, apple cider vinegar, and so on.  Since switching to these natural remedies my face has completely cleared up.  I struggled with severe acne for eight years and during that time I spent thousands of dollars on products like Proactiv that promised to clear up my skin.  Unfortunately none of them worked and it was both a waste of my time and my money.

 

Here's my ALL-NATURAL skincare routine, which has worked beautifully and cleared up my skin once and for all:

 

Cleanse with Manuka honey and water

Apply ACV toner

Moisturize with either coconut oil or jojoba oil

 

For face masks I use either a green tea mask or a greet yogurt mask 2x per week.
