An idea to make a list of acne causes

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be handy if we would make a list of all the acne causes out there (except the really unlikely) . And than possible treatments for them. I think that most acne is treatable but because everyone just has a different cause theyll always get the wrong treatment that worked for others (with other causes). What do you guys think of the idea to make a list ordered on how common they are (guessed of course). And then put in the possible nutritional/holistic treatments and tests you can do to find out you have them. I think that with this list people would have it easier to find there causes and treat them. Instead of just getting the "popular" treatment that is in the topic at the moment they look. They may start colostrum while there cause isnt even leaky gut. Or something like that.

Before we start I first want to know what you think about this idea. Good? Bad? Good but way to long and inaccurate?

Anyone who has lived with adult acne for several years and it seems like nothing is working should look at the role unresolved emotional issues play. For more info on the topic, check out the free SkinDeep book on this website. It's amazing and allowed me to finally get rid of my extremely persistent adult acne.
