I've been on the regimen for about 3 weeks now. There is already a lot of progress but my face is in a very dry, tight, and flaky stage now. I would like to try using the jojoba oil to settle the peeling. I just wanted to know if its safer to use the Acne.org version of the oil, or are in-store products just as safe to use. Is there a certain brand that you guys have used that have had positive outcomes? and what should i be looking for if I do decide to go buy jojoba oil at my nearest store?

Look for the words 100% EXTRA VIRGIN and ORGANIC. Anything else has potentially been tampered with. Try find Dessert Essence, it's the next best thing to the acne.org Jojoba. Good luck!

I second Desert Essence. Anything extra virgin and organic is safe. Grapeseed oil is another good option!

Suffered from acne as a young adult that went into remission when put on hormonal birth control. Went off the HBC around age 22 and the acne returned with a vengeance (along with a host of other hormonal complaints). 100% clear with a modified diet that excludes dairy, sugars, grains, citrus and cured meats and emphasizes whole food-based nutrition from both plant and animal sources, most notably organ meats like liver and juiced whole vegetables. I have included a recipe for the most helpful juice I have come up with for skin complaints. I drink it every day, and it is invaluable for acne due to the large amounts of vitamin A (carotenoids) from both the carrots and beets. It also helps improve your coloring if you are very fair, giving you a pinkish, more radiant look (not orange. Don't worry!).


Magic Juice


In a juicer, combine:


5-6 carrots

1 medium beet

2-3 stalks of celery

1 small apple (Green is preferred. Omit if you are very sugar-sensitive)

1 small (1inch) piece of ginger (optional, but good for digestion)


This makes a variable amount of juice depending on the size of the vegetables you use.

Drink this throughout the morning until it's gone. Store in the fridge not longer than one day.

Having perfectly clear skin on my wedding day was worth all the headache and effort of figuring out how diet affects acne!
