If You've Tried Everything Under The Sun to Clear Your Acne, My Solution May Just Clear Your Skin For Good!

Updated on November 22, 2014

The Method I Used to Clear My Skin the Healthy, Effective, and Natural Way!

I'll be short and quick:

1. Vitamin B-5 (a.k.a. Pantothenic Acid)

2. Zinc

3. Magnesium

I'm a firm believer in natural medicine and ran across these tips from a holistic forum. For the past five years, (I'm still a teenager) I've struggled with moderate to severe acne. I always caked on face makeup and never left the house without it. I have tried three different birth control pills and countless other things to clear my skin, but nothing has ever been as effective as these natural pills.

I understand if you feel doubtful that minerals and vitamins can cure something topical, but why not give it a try?

Acne may very well be a sign that your body is lacking in certain nutrients. If you wash your face and are generally a hygienic person, there should be no reason you have acne; of course, if you're going through puberty or another phase in your life where your hormones are imbalanced, that can also play a big part.

I use:

1. Now Foods Pantothenic Acid in 500 mg

2. Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance, which is 15 mg of Zinc and 1 mg of Copper, which is important because Zinc depletes the body of Copper.

3. Sundown Naturals Magnesium in 500 mg

I took the supplements every day and then started to take them every other day. I wash my face with a Clarisonic Mia, (which I highly recommend you invest in, especially if you wear makeup! It does not clear acne completely, but the quality, texture, and feel of my skin has improved immensely. I never realized how much makeup was still left on my face, even after a makeup wipe, face wash, and toner combined!) a gentle cleanser (I prefer Cerave or Neutrogena), and I recently started to use Sheaterra Argan Oil as a moisturizer, which is 100% Argan Oil and so much cheaper than Josie Maran's! (which I love but it's definitely not worth the price in my opinion). Argan Oil sounds counterintuitive for acne prone/ oily skin, but it hydrates and melts into your skin after a few minutes and does not clog pores! I didn't believe it either, but the Sephora associate convinced me and I am so glad I listened.

FYI, oily skin usually means your skin does not have enough moisturize and the products you are using is drying out your skin. This means your skin will overproduce oil to makeup for the lack of moisturize on your face, resulting in a cycle of extremely oily skin.

For reference, I have oily and dry combination skin with a naturally rough texture. I am 17 years old and have a medium golden skin tone that is prone to hyper pigmentation. I hope this has helped any one out there who is struggling with acne!

I am not sponsored by any company in writing this and/or influenced by them in any way. These recommendations are solely and completely my opinion :)

Two months since I've started taking the vitamins! Scars are starting to fade away
