When To Quit?

Recommended Posts

Have had acne since freshman year, now a soph in college. I don't know what else to do. I have literally tried everything and have maintained a healthy lifestyle but still succumb to acne. I've been on the acne.org treatment for a good 3 and a quarter months and have very little results. I am EXTREMELY careful with my skin, eat healthy ( no food allergies ), work out 5 days a week, wear sunscreen, and all that jazz. I've been to a dermatologist before but was only perscribed retin A and duac for like 2 years so I stopped going. Im guessing this is hormonal acne, but I dont know what else to do. The main problem I have with my face is mild acne and a lot of red marks ( Im guessing from the amount of bp I use which is about a pump and a half ). I've also lowered to 1 pump the past 2 weeks to see if that was making my face so red, but it wasn't. Should I quit the program? I don't see how my face could clear up THAT much in the next month or so.

Try saw palmetto and stinging nettle root if possible without magnesium stearate/stearic acid. Also go to a endocronologist/ hormone specialist to get some tests done. Youtube baba ramdev yoga for skin disease and do hardcore yoga like shoulderstand headstand etc. and drink a cup of fresh vegetable juice daily carrot, cucumber,celery, dandelion greens, wheatgrass etc.

Before you quit, let's see if there is anything you can do to get better results. By 3 months you should be seeing encouraging results at the very least.

Please take this quiz. http://www.acne.org/regimenadvice.php

And read here: http://www.acne.org/...stmistakes.html

Remember that The Regimen works best when it's followed very religiously. Twice per day, every single day. Do not skimp on the bp. Don't skip steps. Don't add in other products or medications. Do not rush the steps. etc.

If you have been doing it exactly right for 3+ months without any encouraging results then I'd think it's time to move on and consider seeing a dermatologist for other treatment options.
