The acne regimen is not an effective method in permanently stopping acne. It just masks the symptoms. Here are the causes of acne, and how to permanently stop acne.

Hormones - Most of acne is caused by hormones. Certain hormones signal the skin to produce more oil and sebum, which causes acne. The ONLY way to stop acne permanently is to shrink these things permanently. One fact that isn't as known as it should be is that DAIRY PRODUCTS CONTAIN TONS OF HORMONES. You should stay far away from dairy products if you want to permanently clear your acne. Also, Omega 3, Zinc, and Vitamin A (instead of accutane), are healthy ways to get your body to produce less sebum. Fried foods have high amounts of saturated fat, which harm prostaglandins (hormone and inflammation regulators), so they should also be avoided.

Liver - Your liver tries to filter out excess hormones, when it's functioning, but even then, it cannot get all hormones out. To function properly, your liver needs a wide range of vitamins and a healthy body from exercise. I suggest a multivitamin.

Gut - A bad gut can cause a wide range of problems, not just regarding skin. Taking probiotics worked well for me, but you should also try to get dietary fiber and drink lots of water.

Stress - Stress is a cause, although it doesn't usually cause a lot of acne. Vitamin B has been shown to ease the effects of stress.

Regarding a skin care regimen, using the regimen would be far too rough on your skin. You don't use it while taking vitamin a for the same reason you don't take it while using accutane (a derivative of vitamin a). Using a chemical exfoliant would also be too rough on your skin. It's best not to touch your skin at all while doing this.

So your solution to acne would be taking : Omega 3, Zinc, and Vitamin A + Multivitamin + Exercise + Taking probiotics = no acne? That sounds kinda easy.

It isn't that easy. Acne is like cancer; it's a collection of diseases lumped together because they all look clinically similar. Fortunately it isn't life threatening.

Probiotics are not a quick fix for gut issues. I don't know where that idea is coming from. If you have leaky gut, it could take months or years to heal even if you're doing everything right.

Vitamin A certainly helps, but supplements are weak. Beef liver is a good source of the biologically active form.

I agree with you that the regimen only covers acne up. Your body is trying to send a message by giving you acne. Brushing is over with benzoyl peroxide is paramount to ignoring a distress signal.

What do you mean by not doing the Regimen while taking Vit A? How are they relevant to each other?

This is pretty common knowledge but certainly not a cure by any means. Although this might help it will not cure acne for the large majority. These are simply good suggestions to use as an adjunctive therapy with the regimen.

I think everyone knows that the regimen is not gonna cure the root cause of your acne. And you can do all those things that you said and all the other supposedly good things for acne and still not get rid of acne. It's not that simple. And I have eaten for years a lot more vitamin A than you and I eat many high A vitamin foods daily and that hasn't made any effect on my sebum amount. You can theorize all day every day but it still don't necessarily have any practical use in real life.

that is because sebum production is determined by your genetic makeup

"How is the regimen, something that 100% won't cure acne, a better solution than permanently stopping acne by stopping the sebaceous glands from being over-active? If you are doubtful that it will work, don't be. Especially don't condemn if for others when you haven't tried it yourself. And would you use the regimen with accutane? No. Why do you think that is?"

Everyone knows that the regimen will not cure your acne. It does a great job of 'masking it' and has been proven in a lot of clinical trials to be an effective way to help reduce acne.

I have tried everything (yes, everything) you have suggested and although I have seen a little bit of improvement it certainly has not 'cured' my acne by any means. Your suggestions are widely known on this site and for the large majority of people who have tried them and documented their progress, so to speak, it has not cured them either.

Where is you evidence that your suggestions cure acne? Please base your arguments on information from peer reviewed journals and provide references instead of anecdotal evidence. Everyone reacts differently to different therapies. This is why there is not a cure, because acne is made up of a variety of factors.

Your suggestions are simply that; suggestions. They are definitely worth a try and are a good basis for helping reduce acne... But to suggest that it is a cure is irrational and irresponsible.

in simple terms it stops acne from forming and the regimen clears the existing acne
