Treatment - Emotions - Internal Cause
1. Simple cleansing of skin
2. Dealing with emotions in a simple way
3. Diet; eating healthy foods: Fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood, meats, etc
What I’m going to show you is not only the best way of treating your skin, it’s the healthiest and pretty simple. Its 3 steps, its natural and normal, no strange tablets or treatments are needed, and can give you clear skin as well as improve your health and well-being.
I really sympathize with people I meet and see in real life with spots and wish I could tell them how to treat it, so I want to offer it here because it worked very well for me after 10 years of trying everything else. I really hope that anyone who wants clear skins tries it and can see bad skin as a thing of the past. I used to come on here hoping for something to work, then I found something that worked and haven’t needed anything else, but I want this to be brought to more people’s awareness.
I think everyone should know this approach as it’s the foundation of treating bad skin, and I think a lot more than ever before do, because with people having to use awful things like tablets and harsh chemicals to treat their skin when they can have clear skin easily if they just knew how this information should be shared by everyone until those treatments are gone.
The 3 aspects of this holistic treatment is skin treatment; simple washing and moisturizing, emotions; letting go of all negativity surrounding skin and diet; dropping acne causing foods and replacing them with foods that improve your skin’s health. All simple and the strongest way to heal your skin and prevent spots.
My quick story is I had spots for years, around 9 years of spots and treatments that didn’t work. I tried accutane and about 6 other cycles of tablets, around 20+ different types of washes, around 8+ cycles of creams, and a few other treatments, and each cycles of creams or tablets would last a few weeks/months and not work. I then tried BP again from here and it just burnt my skin. I used to browse these forums looking for a ‘cure’ every time my skin flared up, just hoping I would find the correct way to treat it and being frustrated so much by everyone’s different regimens. Some would be utterly complicated, and some would require expensive materials, washes, tablets, creams, oils, etc. And it would make me frustrated because I had tried most and still wasn’t clear, and would have to try more treatments and see if they would work. Of course I was treating the *effect*. I was fighting the outcome and not realizing the *cause*; the reason I was actually getting spots. When I found this and tried it my skin cleared up and not only that, I didn’t need a complicated regimen or topical treatments, and my health and my skin’s health improved making it look better than it had in those 10 years, and I’ve had 2 years of experience with it to know it works.
So I understand first-hand how annoying bad skin can be and how complicated and frustrating it can seem when everything you try just doesn’t seem to work and can sometimes make things worse. It’s because we’re dealing with an outcome and trying to fix that.
The problem with treating your skin because you get spots is your only dealing with the EFFECT, when we have to deal with the CAUSE. The cause in most cases(apart from hormonal)is our diet.
On top of that we aggravate our skin with treatments and chemicals that damage our skin and can even be the cause of many spots. It IS possible to treat your skin with creams or tablets, but they have unhealthy side effects and for me, they wouldn’t work.
Treatment should be gentle and natural. The reason spots appear is because we’re going against nature. We’re putting in bad foods, putting in a lot of negativity, and aggravating our skin. So we have to reverse that and put in good foods, positivity and care for our skin.
Let’s get to it.
Treatment - Emotions - Internal Cause
Treatment: Just a simple cleanser with no chemicals is good. I just use Dove Soap for sensitive skin 2xday and as moisturizer I use jojoba oil. These are just my own personal ways of keeping my skin clean and healthy. In the end you just want to keep your face clean with a simple cleanser without harsh chemicals(that many spot-treatment washes have) and keep my skin hydrated with a moisturizer, I use jojoba oil because it’s natural and my skin isn’t greasy(the holistic treatment is for all skin types).
I know some people may not want to stop their facial treatments and it’s OK, the other 2 steps are useful, but make sure you’re not aggravating your skin too much, as sometimes that can be the main cause. It does sound silly, but the treatment can actually be the cause of some spots.
Emotional aspect: It’s important to keep this part under control because it fuels stress and amplifies the problem. This is for your own peace of mind. The emotions from not having clear skin are just as bad sometimes as actually having the spots. Emotions like anger, sadness, frustration and grief are not helpful to us. If the cause of these emotions is a reaction to our skin and self-image, then they should be dealt with.
This is a very simple way of dealing with your emotions with your skin, and for any negative emotions.
You can use this on ANY emotion
Here it is: It’s as simple as this. You say ‘YES’ to everything all
If your emotions are going wild you say “yes” to them.
If you’re body is in pain you say “yes” to the pains.
If you’re life situation is feeling out of control you say “yes” then do whatever.
If you’re angry at yourself, someone or something just say “yes” then do whatever.
Some alternatives: Yes/Accept/Embrace/Welcome/Be aware of/Love/Enjoy
You’re basically accepting all emotions. Most of us fight them. When we feel a negative emotion we should let it be there or even run towards it. You can say “Give me more!” and that’s embracing them, and they leave.
The simple reason is because “what you resist persists”. Resist or fight an emotion and it gets worse. Embrace it or accept it, and it leaves.
Trust me; it’s helpful for your well-being and happiness.
You can use this in your everyday life in ALL situations, not just frustration at skin problems.
Just try it and see. Say “YES” to all negative emotions: Grief, anxiety, frustration, anger, etc.
“Can I just accept for a moment what I’m feeling?”

Its worth reading the parts you want especially the diet part. The rest is scientific studies as to how and why bad foods cause acne, which isn’t really useful looking back, the actual food list is what I use.
The first time you see this list may be quite scary, it was for me. But I got tired of spots and treatments and decided to do something about it, and took on this diet. I was about 50/50 good and bad foods at the beginning, and I can stay clear at eating around 60-70% good foods, and this is someone who has never had anything really work well before. This is because I was treating the effect and as long as the cause was bad, I would have been doing it forever.
So in summary:
• Simple washing and (optional, but helpful)moisturizing
• Emotional aspect
• Good diet
I really hope that this approach gets more popular than it already is until it becomes the foundation for treatment of acne and stops people ending up in the cycle of products and tablets.
I am more confident in having people try this than ANY other product out there and it’s also the safest and healthiest way. I think it’s pointless to have regimens with lots of steps. We shouldn’t have to do any treatment at all, just a good diet, and basic cleansing like everyone else in the world does. Once you’ve proved to yourself that it works you’ll be excited to use it.
I’ll answer any questions you may have.
All the best.
