Please help! Can't seem to find a good treatment.

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am new to this website so I apologize if I am posting this under the wrong forum. I have been dealing with acne since high school which became worse during the college years. After trying multiple prescription/OTC ointments and essential oils, I just can't seem to find a solution to treat these old acne scars. Any and every advice would be helpful. 

Thank you so much!

This is most likely PIE, but possibly PIH or Hyperpigmentation. 

It's a common question and we made this faq with various treatments, Laser works the best (Vbeam or Excel V for pigment issues) I would see a dermatologist to discuss some of the bumps of active acne.

Definitely you need to treat inside out
drink buttermilk or kefir
drink herbal teas like chamomile, nettle, mint, thyme, burdock, milk thistle
you will see a huge improvement how you feel and look
avoid artificial flavored teas
also take vitamin D3, vitamin E and flaxseed oils
also helpful would be pills especially made for skin 


For scars try mixing onion paste, apple cider vinegar, and buttermilk 
1 teaspoon of each
apply for 15 min
to remove onion smell 
mix baking soda and lemon juice and apply for 10 min
always finish rinsing with cold water
apply vitamin E one drop and finish with moisturizer 

Also great tea for hormones
nettle and red raspberry leaves
great combination
