Cystic acne the natural treatment that actually works

It’s hard finding a finding a good natural treatment, especially for cystic acne. I know, having previously suffered from cystic acne. And having previously tried nearly every acne product in existence. However, let me show why I think I’ve found the best natural treatment for cystic acne.

Firstly, this product is 100% natural, no chemicals what so ever, zip. The last thing you want is to inflame your acne even more. That’s why it’s important to make sure every acne product you buy to treat cystic acne, or even any other type of acne, is really 100% natural. A lot of products are “natural” but not all of them are really chemical free.

Secondly this product has the added bonus of working with your body, to eliminate the causes of cystic, and not just “burn” away your acne for a couple of weeks, which would only make it worse in the long run anyway.

Not only that but I’ve used this product over and over, and I myself am a living testament to the fact is works. I think that should sell the product alone. However even if your not satisfied there’ll still give you a refund, because they’re that confident. At the place I buy it from anyway. But I’ll give you the link later so you’ll be in on the good stuff as well.

So what’s this magical cure you swear by?

My usual acne product. A lot of people email me asking about what I’d recommend for this or that type of acne, but at the end of the day most acne is caused by the same stuff, so it make sense to use the same treatment.

For those of you not in the know, my usual product is Acnezine, Check it out here to get in on their 100% guarantee: AcneZine Store

Hope that helps those of you who have been asking!

Acne, Blackheads and natural treatment: The natural product that keeps me acne free

A lot of people have been asking what I use to treat blackheads, and how to get rid of them. And although it may come as a surprise, I use the exact same product to treat my regular acne spots and my blackheads. After all they’re all caused by the same thing at the end of the day. Let me tell you why I use what I use. Read on.

Because it’s a natural solution. That’s all. No big secret, just common sense (or it is if your in the know)

My natural product works with the body to clear my existing acne (and blackheads) and keep me acne free for the long haul. Not only that, but because it’s working with my body, it’s keeping it healthy on the inside and the outside.

Another thing to note about my product is 100% natural, so none of those chemicals most other products are stuffed with. I don’t want to make my acne worse after all. Acne products that contain chemicals, although working in the short term, overall cause your acne to come back with a vengeance.

So what’s the product?

If you regularly read my posts you should already know, but for those that don’t:


That’s all, check it out if you’ve still struggling with your acne or blackheads. It’s just the logical approach really. Take a look.

“How do I get rid of old acne scars?” – Woah! Wait Just a second!

I’ve been receiving a few emails regarding this very question.

“How do I get rid of old acne scars?”

But let me stop you right there! I think a lot of you are working backwards on this one. Its very expensive, and rather hard to actually get rid of old acne scars.. Although very doable (don’t get me wrong now) but there’s a much more efficient solution to the entire problem.

“What’s that then?”

If you look at the big picture, it’d be much easier to just prevent the scars in the first place. And that’s gold right there. You might not realise it now.. but stop and think about it for a second. If you just prevent that acne that’s causing you social embarrassment from leaving scars in the first place, then you avoid the whole situation.

I’m going to dispel a myth right here. You can have acne, bad acne, even horrible acne. But that doesn’t mean it has to leave scars.

What you need to do is use a treatment that helps prevent the inflammation (the cause of scars), and you’ll be scar free for the rest of your acne life.

Now it’s rather hard to tell, from just looking at the label of a product, if it’s going to actually do this, so I can’t simply give you a list of products to choose from.

But I can give you one solution.

Luckily, by pure chance, I discovered a product that prevents scarring all by itself. Now I don’t know if this was intentional, or if it’s just a lucky side effect, but it reduces inflammation entirely. And more importantly, stops my acne leaving scars.

So instead of asking “How do I get rid of old acne scars” instead ask “How can I prevent acne scars in the first place” and to do that, just find a product similar to mine that will prevent inflammation.

Here’s a link to that product in case your interested :)

Heal Acne Scars Fast, with these 5 Top Tips!

Hey guys, i realise i've been absent the past few days, but don't worry! I've had good reason. I've been testing a product for you secretly - But don't tell anyone (Shhh!) I should have a complete review ready for you guys in the next day or two, so sit tight!

But until then i thought i'd fill you in on some essential information - Continuing on from our little acne scars posts. I'm going to give to you 5 tips to help prevent, as well as heal your acne scars fast. So here we go!

Zinc Supplements - Zinc's major benefit is its role in the skin rebuilding process. It helps produce the protein keratin, which helps your body to heal wounds and build new layers of skin. Not only this, but it has several anti-oxidant properties that help get rid of bacteria, which not only helps prevent acne, but also, helps to keep your scars clean, and heal faster.

A handy tip - If you crush zinc supplements, mix them with some moisturizer, and then rub it into your scars, its been proven to help speed up healing. Cool eh?

Don't drink alcohol - Or at the very least, don't drink as much. When you have a wound, your body rushes to repair it with healing cells in the blood. However, if you've been drinking, the alcohol in your blood stream slows the process down, which in turn slows down the whole healing process. So maybe next time your out drinking, consider having a pint of water instead.

Water - Speaking of, your body is made up of a huge amount of water, roughly 80% to be exact. If your bodies running low on water, the healing process if slowed down again. A doubly good reason to drink water.

Stress - When your stressed its been found that you product lower levels of interleukin-beta, which is another essential substance in the wound healing process. Reduce your stress, and up your interleukin-beta, for much faster results.

And finally,

Detoxification - Your body will always be affected by what you put in it, and it often shows via your skin. So for best scar healing results, try eatting a good balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding junk food, which will fill your body with that nasty toxins that cause acne in the first place. Do all this and you'll be in much better shape for scar healing.

Hope all those tips helped, i'll be back to you soon with that top secret product review, so keep checking back!

The Best Acne Scar Treatments Reviewed

The treatment of acne scars is something nearly all acne sufferers face at one point or another. Unless you happen to be in the lucky few that get away with it. But to the majority of us, its just a fact of life, that we've got to get on and deal with. I've been talking to many people recently who have been asking about how to remove acne scars, and i didn't have all the answers, so i thought "hey, lets go and find out for all those lovely people that have been wondering". So here as promised, the best ance scar treatments fully reviewed! Just for you!

Wait! Are you sure you've got scars?

Now a word of warning before you read this, some people think they have scars, when infact its just the healing process your skin goes through after a spot. If you have a red mark where a spot once was, then that's just the skin going through its natural healing process, this can actually take 6-12 months before its fully healed and theres several things you can do to treat this. (i'll see if i can write a proper article on this soon) If however after 12 months, you still have a discolouration in your skin, this is a scar.

Okay, what are the treatments?

Right, lets get to the meat of it! Theres several different treatments for real scars. And for best results a combination of them is sometimes used. So here we go:

Collagen injection: This is a substance thats already found naturally in the body. The procedure involves injecting it under the skin, causing it to stretch out. This is good for removing "ice pick scars". The procedure is reletively pain free (just a couple of injections), and doesn't take very long at all. The downsides are, its fairly pricey, and need to be topped up every 6 to 18 months.

Dermabrasion: This is the popular one. Many people champion it as the best cure for acne scars. The process involves a brush moving at high speeds effectively removing the surface layers of the skin. A local anesthetic is required, though surface scars will be removed altogether, and only deep "ice pick" scars will remain. People with darker skin however will require additional treatment, as the demabrasion can cause changes in skin pigmentation.

Microdermabrasion: This uses the same theory as demabrasion, however the process uses aluminium oxide crystals through a vacuum tube to remove only the very top layer of skin, and works on a much smaller scale that dermabrasion. The process often takes several procedures, however its not nearly as effective as dermabrasion.

Laser treatment: This is probably my prefered method. Its quick and painless. The procedure involves shining a high intensity laser at the skin, to vaporize the surface layers. This destroys the scar tissue to leave clear smooth skin. The downside is, you'll be left with sore red skin for a while after the treatment, though it often only takes a single treatment for permanant results. Definately worth it in my opinion.

Chemical Peels: Involves using a solution of chemicals to burn away the outter layers of skin to reveal clear under layers of skin. Different strengths are available, and post-process healing can take up to 3 weeks.

Now they're the major treatments, i'll do a separate article on each one in the future, with plenty of pictures, so keep checking back :)

If you want to avoid scars altogether, the key is to treat your acne fast! For that i will always recommend AcneZine

How to prevent Acne Scars

Ever wondered why some acne sufferers recover from their acne and their face is completely perfect, whilst others treat their acne, and remain covered in scars just as bad as their acne itself? Its confusing i know. But here i am once again to inform you why acne scars occur, and how to prevent them. Read on.

What exactly is a scar?

Well basically, scars are caused when the skin tissue gets damaged. Imagine someone smashes your window, and you have to repair it. Now unless your a professional window fitter (lets assume your not :P) your not going to have the tools or the supplies to do it. So you'll find say some cardboard and tape and patch it up best you can till the repair men arrive. Thats kind of like what happens when you scar. The skins been damaged so your body rushes over to repair it with whatever it has, often leaving a bit of a mess. Hence a scar.

So how do we prevent it oh wise one!?

Okay, i may not be wise, but i'll tell you what you can do. Its hard to judge how scars will affect different people, but the main thing you need to do, is treat your acne as quick as possible, because theres not alot you can really do after its already happened. The main thing you need to try and do is prevent redness, and inflammation. The more you do that, the more you'll reduce scaring. So heres a few things you can do right now to stop redness and inflammtion:

  • 1. When washing your face, don't scrub hard, just gently clean it.

  • 2. Try not to put makeup on area's affected by acne. If you must, use waterbased products.

  • 3. Definately don't pick/pop/squeeze/or in any way play with your spots.

  • 4. When treating your acne, try to use natural products. More chemicals = More inflamation

  • 5. When shaving try to do it AFTER you shower, and with an electric razor. Avoiding irritating your acne is paramount to reducing scars.

Thats all for now, i'll be putting a post up later with how you can treat scars. And remember i always recommed AcneZine for fast natural acne treatment.

How to treat acne now with these 5 home remedies!

Suffering from acne is perhaps one of the most demoralizing things about being a teenager. Infact 70% of all teenagers at any given time are suffering from acne. As you might suspect there many acne treatments on the market, however not all of them can be used at home, right now. Basic things such as water, exercise, make-up, and sleeping can affect the severity of your acne, and this article will explore how you can effectively fight your acne right now, with my top 5 use at home methods!

Acne is caused by toxins building up in your body, which cause spots as they are flushed out of your body and onto the surface of your skin. It is important to understand the cause of acne, because we don’t want to just remove just the side effects (spots), but prevent it altogether.

Tip #5

Water can effectively treat your acne build up, seriously. This is because it keeps the blood healthy, and its your blood cells which fight the bacteria which can build up and cause spots on your skin. So make sure you drink plenty opf H2O!

Tip #4

Exercise. Now I know not everyone’s going to like this one, but I’m not talking about 10 mile runs or anything like that. Just simple regular exercise will do. As soon as you break a sweat, your acne has been treated. Basically, the perspiration caused by exercise releases all those nasty toxins that cause acne. So just do some simple exercise and make sure to get a shower afterwards to keep your skin clean, and help your acne.

Tip #3

This ones for girls. As an acne sufferer you should make sure the make-up you use is acne friendly, there are plenty of chemicals in most makeup’s that can irritate the skin and create a perfect environment for acne to breed. However, I’d recommend as little make up as possible, because it can clog the pours and that will create an acne invasion. Maybe just a bit of eyeliner? Your all beautiful enough anyway :)

Tip #2

Clean bedding. Make sure you keep your bedding clean, because when you sleep, you’re literally rolling around in your body’s own grease. Although to prevent you changing your bedding every time you sleep, I’d recommend wearing a long sleeved t-shirt to stop acne from your arms spreading to your face.

And finally, tip #1! The ultimate acne remedy!

Tip #1

Okay, okay, so I did cheat here, but this is the absolute best way I’ve experienced to get rid of acne. And it’s with AcneZine. A bit of a cop out I know, but if you are in that 70% that suffer from acne, you really owe it to yourself, to at least have a look. Here’s the link for those interested.
