Jason's Naturals Dandruff Relief Shampoo - Acne Cure?

1 post in this topic

Hi, I'm a long-time reader, first time poster. I've been on a pursuit to cure my acne without Accutane. I've had acne since I was a teenager (I'm 38, Caucasian, female), and the only reprieve I got was from going on Accutane in my early 20s. My acne came back during my first pregnancy in my early 30s, and I have been battling with it ever since.

I've been reading many forums on for several months now, and I have many of people's suggestions: I'm taking Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5 (in large doses); avoiding Vitamins B6 and B12, (also avoiding Iodine and Biotin); Vitamin C; Vitamin D3, Vitamin E; as well as fish oil, zinc, magnesium aspartate, chromium, selenium, MSM, ACV and green tea extract. I've been spacing out these vitamins and minerals throughout the day, per the advice on these forums. I was also on the Face Reality Skin Care Regimen, which improved my acne, but was not a cure.

After reading about the Oil Cleansing Method with Olive and Jojoba Oils, I was intrigued. Furthermore, I read that some people were using anti-dandruff shampoo (e.g. Head and Shoulders), and then I had an a-ha moment when looking at the ingredients on the back of my husband's anti-dandruff shampoo (Jason Natural Dandruff Relief Shampoo) while taking a shower one day. I washed my face with it, and while massaging my skin, I felt an acne scab peel off! Sure enough, when I got out if the shower, the acne scab was gone; replaced by pink skin. I then started using the shampoo every morning and night, and by the following weekend, my friends were telling me that my skin looked amazing (I wasn't wearing any make-up, and it was the best my skin looked in a long time.)

I started researching the ingredients a little bit more, and I became concerned that the shampoo contained both salicylic acid and sulphur (I read somewhere that the two shouldn't be used at the same time.) I was also concerned about the menthol content, because I read elsewhere that menthol can aggravate acne (one caveat being that if it's listed as one of the first three ingredients - which it is not). Paranoid that I was it not doing good by my skin, I stopped using the shampoo and started using other products, which caused my skin to break out heavily.

Fed up, I started using the shampoo again last night, and sure enough, two acne scabs immediately fell off, and by this a.m., my skin is again on the road to recovery.

I tried researching if anyone else had used this as an acne treatment, and there were only two reviews on Amazon. One purchaser said she used it on her body acne, and it was cured (the same purchaser, though, warned not to use it on the face, without giving a reason). Another purchaser did use it on her face, and it did clear up her acne as well!

The combination of ingredients in Jason's Naturals Dandruff Relief Shampoo is quite possibly the perfect anti-acne topical cocktail, at least, it is for me.

I will continue posting and letting you know how I'm doing. Plmk if you try it, and if it's working for you too.
