FYI for future reference:

 

Have Tried: 

-Clean and Clear Face Washes

-Clean and Clear Spot Treatment
-Neutrogena Face Washes/Scrubs
-Neutrogena Spot Treatment

-Mary Kay Spot Treatment
-Apricot Scrub
-Clearasil Ultra Face Wash/Scrub
 

 

All the above have similar ingredients. If they prove in effective that maybe your cue to look towards something else. Otherwise jumping from brand to brand (even more expensive) will do little but eat at your wallet and fail to produce results or make things work.  Tea tree oil does work, but it MUST be diluted with equal parts water.  Most people ignore this.

Interesting.. but most likely not for various hormonal reasons even with hormonal therapy; it might actually make it worse.

Be honest? Call him over the phone instead of in person that way you have control of the situation to an extent. 

 

Go to Montreal.

Best just take vitamin A. At 64 bucks a bottle you can get your A cheaper in many ways. 

 

You need preferably the fat soluble vitamins together for them to work efficiently: A, D, E, K. Zinc also seems to help along side A and D. Can't remember where i read it tho..


In Topic: Toxic Body And Liver Is The Root Cause Of Acne

I've done a colon cleanse when i had a colonoscopy. I saw no difference. I'm just trying to say that from what you are implying about the liver essentially "not working" evidenced by toxin build up-you would see liver function tests increased, you would find an enlarged liver, and possibly pain with GI symptoms of liver dysfunction. 

 

So, i have a hard time believe its a liver issue and more a GI issue. 25% of stool is bacteria. So i then could believe then prolonged and irregular bowel habits could some how lead an overgrowth of bacteria some how causing skin issues indirectly through like toxin build up in the colon or inflammation through immune responses and cytokine release.
