Why is my skin still bad?
I’m an 18 year old male, I’d like to think I’m done with puberty since I can grow a nice beard. I’ve had a consistent skin routine for the past 6months. I clean twice a day morning and night with a cleanser that works for me, tone after cleaning with witch hazel , and then moisturize with acne fighting moisturizer after those two steps. I make sure my skin is clean after I workout or sweat, I stopped touching my face all together, I make sure my omega 3’s and omega 6 fatty acids are balanced. I drink about a gallon of water every day. I’ve completely cut dairy out of my diet. I honestly don’t know what to do about it anymore.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL
1/ Never, ever touch your face.
2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice coldca water, in that order, once a day.
3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal
4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal.
Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing.
5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again.
6/ Do this for 90 days.
7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to ‘double bag’ your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days.
A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a
nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.
I never have had acne, a few pimples on my left chin where I am most likely to rest my hand.
The secret is never to touch the spots
The People’s Pharmacy reports that Milk of Magnesia applied topically, at night is useful. This is 10% Magnesium Hydroxide in water. Epsom salts, which are Magnesium sulphate added to a hot bath are also reported to clear up back acne.
An increase in IODINE (Seafood, milk, Lugols) is often beneficial.
The very latest treatment is super gross, but works: August 2014, T. Borody: Faecal transfer from someone with perfect skin (and I’d guess, same gender.)

Just keep it up my friend, my son is 19+ and he is only now starting to clear up. My 22 yr old nephew still gets it. Time will take care of it if you take care of you.
