First off I want to tell you that I am not trying to sell anyone anything. My GOAL is to share my experience with others for free in hopes that it will help them as well. You DON'T have to go out and spend a whole bunch of money to be ACNE free!! All you have to do is be DILIGENT and PATIENT with what I am about to share with you or else it will not work. I have lived with the problem of ACNE for 15 years. It has cycled from moderate to severe and everything in between. I am thirty years old and have spent probably tens of thousands of dollars trying to battle this common disease on things like:

Creams, Toners, Oils

Pimple popping, Not pimple popping

Masks, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion

Accutane, Night creams, Retinol

Astringents, Antiseptics (Peroxide, Alcohol)

Soaps, Scrubs, Topical Analgesics

Sunblocks, Lotions

Fasting, Diet Change

Cortizone shots

Extreme situations in the past: Applying toothpaste,nail polish remover, egg yolk on my face.

I'm sure there are a lot of other things that I have tried in the past but theses are the MAIN ones that come to mind.

I am convinced that Big Name pharmaceutical and Cosmetic companies know what causes ACNE and how to stop it but will NEVER share that information with the public because it is not within their best financial interest ($$$$). I understand that everyone has to make a buck but when millions of teens and adults are literally struggling with an ever growing epidemic to the point of sheer frustration and these companies are "Beating around the bush", that angers me!! The following is information that I have gained through trial and error. Ready? :


Out of all of the products I have tried, I have found a combination that I feel will work for ANYONE!! First off, understand that ACNE starts from the inside of the body, rarely the outside. When we get bumps that are red and slightly raised it's usually due to skin irritation from things like clothing or hats in contact with the skin, reaction to facial products, dirt, ect, etc...all external causes. But when we get ACNE such as raised bumps with "Whiteheads" or "Blackheads" this is caused by an "OVERLOAD" of toxins in the body. I'll prove it!

Our bodies are designed to eliminate toxins several ways.

Through our: Bowels (Urine,Feces)



Storage in our Fat


Skin!!!! (Especially when we sweat)

Believe it or not we get rid of most of these TOXINS through our Lungs when we breath!! Unfortunately the body can only get rid of a select amount of toxins in a certain period of time. When it feels "overloaded" it chooses the last resort. Our SKIN!! With all of the preservatives, sweeteners, artificial everything, and so on in todays food, the body treats these as toxins and it is just too much to handle so the body chooses our largest organ which is our skin. Why predominately the face, I don't know.

Well I'm thirty years old and decided it was time to rid myself of ACNE once and for all!! I decided to begin a new regimen by cleaning out the INSIDE of my body and not re-polluting it in anyway.

First up, DIET CHANGE!! I know what many of you are saying" Yeah, yeah I've tried that!" Well I had tried it many times myself before but I was doing it wrong. You have to eat foods that are in their natural state or extremely close to it. That's right! No more SUGAR, WHEATS, FLOURS, BREADS, DAIRY, CAFFEINE, PASTAS, CRACKERS, CANDY, CAKE. When in doubt, don't eat it!! Yes it is hard but Yes it is possible. I had a MAJOR sweet tooth. I'm skinny but have been known to polished off whole cartons of ice cream and eat one whole half of cakes in just one day alone. Let's be honest folks. Sugar isn't even a necessary daily nutrient yet it is in almost EVERYTHING we put in our mouths. Stay away from it and you WILL see drastic changes!!

Next up, INTERNAL BOWEL AND LIVER CLEANSING AND MAINTANANCE. This is an absolute MUST and goes hand and hand with the diet change. One will NOT work without the other so don't try it!! I have done this several times in the past but have found that I was not doing it correctly. Here are the products that work:

1) Super Colon Cleanse (Initial 10 day cleansing)

2) Fiber Supplement (3 times daily for maintenance, any brand will work)

3) Ultra Liver cleanse by Enzymatic (14 days)

4) Choose 1 day out of the week to fast (Hard at first but possible)

5) Drink Magnesium Citrate the day

after the fast (Flush out built up toxins

accumulated throughout the week)

6) Drink Flor Essence body Detox Tea (Finish the bottle)

7) Fish Oil pills with Vit D AND Omega 3 (Helps skin by Nature Made)

Seems like a whole lot but if you are diligent and stick to this cheap and easy program it will become habit. FOLLOW ALL OF THESE STEPS!!! After you do that steps 1, 3, and 6 can be followed on a REGULAR BASIS!! Steps 2, 4, and 5 can be followed as you see fit. I would recommend every 2 months to follow up and thoroughly cleanse with steps 2, 4, and 5!!

And Lastly, A good external cleansing program. This step, believe it or not, is NOT as important as the two mentioned above. For example: At the start of my day, I wash my face with Olay soap.Yes that's right, regular ol' moisturizing soap. No fancy, expensive cleansers here. Next, I take a washcloth and soak it with 91% Rubbing Alcohol and wipe down my head (I shave bald), neck, chest and FACE. Next I do the same with good ol' Hydrogen Peroxide. Next I do the same with Neutrogena Astringent (blue in color). Then to prevent dryness, I splash my face with water and rub my face down lightly with Oil of Olay Facial Lotion with UV protectant. Most of you are probably thinking "Well isn't that just washing off the alcohol, peroxide, and astringent ?". The purpose of these three is to cleanse the face and kill bacteria which they all do when you apply them. I only "Leave them on" when I know I'm staying indoors or when I apply them at night. The only thing different I do at night is instead of washing with soap I wash with Clean&Clear 3 in 1 exfoliating cleanser. It is a light exfoliant so it can be used daily and it has peroxide in it which makes it even better!! Then I rub down with the alcohol, peroxide, and astringent as mentioned before but this time I DON'T rinse it off. Leave it on! Then I apply Caladryl Clear Topical Analgesic Lotion because it is a lotion that actually has a drying effect and it is a skin protectant. Lastly I lightly coat my face with Derma P17 clay mask and leave it on to help with drying out the ACNE (Any clay, mud, peel, or whatever type of mask will work, you are just using it to help dry out the ACNE present).

This will work for ANYONE!! It will be hard at first (What isn't!!). It will be CHEAP!! (Thank God!!). It will take time (But you will see drastic results!!!!!) You have had ACNE for a while so it won't go away completely overnight!! Be Patient and stick to the program!! Create habit! Oh and get ready because people who don't understand what you are going through will try and deter you from the regiment but just keep in mind that they don't understand. You are sick of ACNE and are willing to try something different to achieve results! Pay them no mind!

For those of you who shave, I wash my head and face with the exfoliant cleanser (warm water), wipe my face down with the alcohol, peroxide, and astringent to kill bacteria, coat my head with Vitamin E Oil thoroughly, and then apply a shaving Gel. This seems to fight off razor bumps quite well!!

I have some quesiton, can you do the steps 1, 3 and 6 at the same time, and you have to drink the magnesium citrate only at the morning after you had the fast??

Hi -


DO NOT TAKE MAGNESIUM CITRATE UNLESS RECOMMENDED SPECIFICALLY BY A DOCTOR AND UNDER THEIR SUPERVISION. Drinking this stuff, especially after extensive fasting, can cause some serious electrolyte imbalances and can even lead to kidney failure and heart problems. This medication is used specifically for cleaning out your bowels before surgery and outpatient scoping procedures. Regular use can permanently alter the way your bowels function and ultimately make constipation worse.

Get clear !!

I've struggled with persistent cystic acne for 13 years. I am finally crystal clear (I get a small breakout if I stray away from my regimen or eat the wrong things but whatever sometimes you need junk food!) now I'm no expert, but I do know what it's like to cry when you see your face without makeup If this is you, read on!

Now, after visiting the dermatologist many many times, I've had some short-lived success. The only thing that has given me consistent success is changing what I put into my body. Ever feel like you are taking amazing care of your skin and still breaking out? That's because our skin is a direct reflection of our health-acne is a symptom of a bigger problem: lack of nutrition!

Many people have food intolerances and don't know it. So we eat the same things day in and day out and our body tries to eliminate them (via our skin for some people like me and you). Some common triggers: dairy, gluten, processed sugar (me), corn (me). By eliminating corn and corn products-read labels!! And lowering sugar intake while adding whole food nutrition via my diet and juice plus capsules (life saver! Also helped with weight loss for me)...I am totally clear and confident. Check my profile for before/after pictures.


Eliminate corn products in diet

Reduce sugar in diet

Take juice plus capsules

Eat mostly non processed foods


Am: wash with cera ve sensitive skin wash

Moisturize with Jergens for face spf 15

Almay clear complexion makeup

Mac bronzing powder

Pm: wash with cera be sensitive skin wash

Moisturize with neutrogena oil free

Treat with acne.org treatment (3 times a week)

I've done the regimen without the diet change. Helped but did not keep the giant, under the skin cysts from forming! Hit me up for any questions you have

When you talk about eliminating sugar from your diet, what kinds of "healthy" foods are included? For example, is quinoa okay? What about brown rice? Or some fruit, like apples?

Dear God don't put hydrogen peroxide on your face! There are so many effective chemical exfoliants and ways to kill bacteria that don't involve these harsh methods. No, this would not work for every skin type. No one should do this because you're stripping your skin of all of the natural oil which will only make you produce more sebum and get more acne. Eat healthy, exfoliate, kill acne bacteria, and moisturize!
