I tell you what! Hands down best remedy for my acne is the Oil Cleansing Method.

IN 4 oz. glass bottle:
Mix 2 oz. Castor oil:2 oz. Ex. Virgin Olive oil

Shake to mix.

side note*grapeseed, sunflower, coconut, oil will do just as fine with the castor oil. Make sure you try to buy organic and unrefined oils.

Add 4 or so drops of geranium, lavender, thyme, tea tree, oregano, or WHAT EVER your favorite essential oil is to scent and add 'anti' power.
Essential oil is not necessary, but does help.

Use this remedy for your pm routine.
after face is clean, take a little oil mixture in hand and rub in firm circles on face. Start at your forehead and work your way down.

GO AHEAD! Cover your edges, brows, and lashes. This mixture stimulates growth☺

With the oil concoction on your face, run a rag under hot water.

Drape hot rag over face and Let sit for 2 or so minutes.

wipe oil off face with rag and enjoy!

in just three days my face perked right up and looks brighter!

I did get a few more pimples, but....I think they were just festering into the cysts under the surface before I started and I believe they would have turned into the really painful ones had I not tried this.

after 5 days, I seen a difference in the thickness of my eyebrows foresure, and I think my eyelashes are coming around too.

hope this helps!

Very Effective With Zero Side-Effects

1. Wake up in the morning, brush your teeth drink 2 glass of warm water. Wait for 15 mins eat homeopathic medicine called sulphur 30 (Sounds dangerous but homeopathic medicines don't have any side effects). Do this step every 3-4 days in a week only; don't do this continuously because it makes your skin dry.
2. Don't eat anything for 30 mins.
3. Eat 5 Almonds after that.
4. Wash face with water and rinse gently. Apply honey to affected areas.
5. Keep for 30 mins and rinse again.
6. Don't eat fried food or food with lot of oil in it.
7. Try exercising like running or gym in which you sweat. Wash face once done.
Remember, if your face gets too dry after every wash simply apply some moisturizer. (apply in less)
8. Before going to bed eat 5 almonds and a homeopathic medicine called nux vomica 200. (Only 4 days in a week)
Diet Recommendations: Eat fibrous food make sure your stomach is good always to counter Acne and voila!

Results start show after 15 days and take upto 2-3 months depending on how bad your Acne is. But, this is a very strong and effective solution. You will never remember what Acne is.

Mix a container of toothpaste and baking soda, then apply to acne infected areas. Then, with a paintbrush, spread aloe Vera gel all across your face. Not only will this help target and attack acne that you didn't see, but it will also help prevent it in the first place.

I have sensitive skin, so when I treat my acne, I have to be gentle. Sleeping with a clean towel on my pillow at night seems to help keep my acne at bay, as well as washing my face at least twice a day. I rarely use chemicals because my skin is so sensitive.

When searching for a remedy for fine lines and wrinkles I heard that virgin coconut oil was very effective but since I get acne, was worried it would cause the acne to get worse. I tried it out of desperation to reduce fine lines and to my surprise, my acne completely cleared up and I have not had a single pimple in the entire 4 months I've been using it. Fine lines have also significantly improved. It's inexpensive compared to anti-aging creams. $7.00 for a large jar at the local bulk food store.
Wash face with gentle cleanser, pat dry, apply a glob of virgin coconut oil, massage into skin. Leave it for a few minutes, wipe off excess with fingers and apply makeup, etc as usual. Hope this works for you too!

Okay so you’ve tried everything to cure your acne! I’m talking pharmaceuticals both orally and topically, herbal remedies, lotions and positions. You may even have gone to down the path of green shakes and a raw vegan diet. But for some reason nothing seems to work!

If this sounds like you, I’m going to let you in on a little secret…

Your acne is probably the result of a mental and emotional imbalance! Now this may seem a little far-fetched, but hear me out and let me give you a brief background story. I had suffered from acne since I was 15 years old, until I was nearly 30. I had studied Naturopathy so I had a clean diet and access to any herbal remedy available. I felt embarrassed. How was I going to treat clients with skin conditions when I couldn’t even cure my own?

Now it should be noted that I also have experience in psychotherapy and human behaviour. But for some reason I did not make the connection between my acne and my mindset. One day I was lucky enough to have someone sit down with me and nut out that connection. From that day on I never suffered from acne again. Here is the same mental exercise that I did. You really need to push yourself until you feel a shift in each step. For this reason it may be best to do it with another person so they can really push you when you want to give up and resist. I have listed some examples but you really need to come up with examples and scenarios that resonate with you in order to re-myelinate your neural pathways.

Quite simply, how does your acne make you feel? For me, I felt like it made me ugly and flawed.

- WHAT IS THE OPPOSITE DESCRIBING WORD AND LIST AS MANY DRAWBACKS OF THIS TRAIT AS YOU CAN? (don’t stop until you feel a shift) I felt that the opposite traits were attractive and perfect. Here are some example drawbacks:

Everyone looks and stares at you, including sleaze bags, creepy old men and bitchy women. People will objectify you or treat you like a piece of meat.

Free stuff comes with a price. Normally it’s called “I pay for your meal in exchange for sex”.

An overinflated ego. So many compliments make you superficial, arrogant and up yourself. You have the tendency to only want to hang around with other attractive people, who also have cardboard personalities. You miss out on the plethora or opportunities that less attractive people can provide you with.

No real friends. Yeah, they might compliment you, but that gets boring. They just want to be around you because you’re pretty. When the going gets tough, they’re nowhere to be found.

Your dates are shallow. People hardly love you, they just love what you look like. You’re a human shell to them. And even if dates line up, finding someone of quality and substance is a fucking headache. Let the interviews commence.

Some men are drawn to ‘trophy wives’ to boost their own feelings of self-worth as if to say: ‘Look what I can get! I must be pretty special.’ But over time they they may need to trade you in by seeking a younger, more beautiful partner to continue the facade of success. And in the meantime, they may not even fully respect you, because they are only giving value to your physical beauty, not the person underneath.

Beauty isn’t forever. You have a “sell by” date in modelling and are bound to be replaced with the newer younger hottest person by the time you turn 30. And don’t even try to fix yourself with plastic surgery that shit just won’t work.

Beautiful women can feel the pressure to look beautiful all the time in case their partner no longer loves them if they don’t makeup or gorgeous clothes. They can fear putting on weight or growing old and so they can sometimes resort to drastic dieting or plastic surgery to keep the fear at bay.

You start stressing if you DON’T get complimented. Is a hair out of place? Is your mascara smudged? You suddenly worry that you might not be so pretty and get all insecure.

Your partner is bound to be insecure and jealous. Just because you say you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean people won’t hit on you left, right and centre.

You believe that you’re so hot that you automatically have a sense of entitlement. You FEEL people SHOULD treat you better because you’re hot. This is something EVERY good looking person secretly battles. A lot of people won’t admit this one but is true.

- LIST AS MANY BENEFITS OF THE TRAIT YOU USED TO DESCRIBE YOUR ACNE (eg the benefits of being ugly or flawed)

Firstly and fore mostly, no sleazy guys and creepy old men hitting on you! This means no wolf whistles as you walk past a building site full of tradies or no guys trying to grab your ass as you walk through a crowd!

You repel wierdos on the public transport! There’s nothing worse than sitting in an empty tram and having that weirdo sit directly next to you only to try and strike up a conversation.

Ugly people are appreciated for their personality. If you’re ugly and someone agrees to hang out with you, chances are it’s because they like you for who you are.

Ugly people are funnier. It’s true! Think of all the truly funny people you know. Chances are they are unattractive. That’s because ugly people can’t take themselves too seriously.

Being ugly is low maintenance. When you’re ugly you don’t have to worry about trivialities such as make-up, hair extensions, tan, botox, plastic surgery. Since nothing you do is really going to matter you can just let yourself go. You can save a lot of money!

Ugly people are more successful and acquire more skills and resources. Beautiful people have everything handed to them. Ugly people, on the other hand, have to work harder to get what they want. When you grow up ugly, nothing is handed to you. You have to study and do well in school and you need to acquire skills. Beautiful people don’t need to struggle to gain things and they are weaker people because if it.

People actually take you seriously and listen to what you have to say. The problem with being beautiful is that people are blinded by your good looks and don’t listen when you speak. If you’re ugly, you will never have that problem. No one watches the Miss America pageant for their views on politics or world issues.

Whoever you date or marry actually cares about you. Have you ever questioned if the person you are dating is with you because of your looks or do they actually care about you? If you’re ugly then that is never a concern for you. You know that the person lying next to you isn’t going anywhere because if your looks were such a concern they wouldn’t be there to begin with. Think of the Heidi Klum/Seal scenario.

So you rolled a less than average score in the genetic lottery. Well, there may be some small consolation in the fact that hot guys are more likely to shoot blanks. Studies have shown that there’s a connection between how attractive you are and your sperm count, and it’s not the one you think: Unattractive males are just more fertile.



If you have any questions please contact me. I have a limited number of free Skype calls per month if you would like me to go through these steps with you. I’d love to hear your comments on how you personally feel the benefits of being ugly or the drawbacks of being attractive!

Thank you for sharing such great tips! Ive experienced moderate acne breakouts since I was 11. Now in my late 20s I had tried everything from chemical to natural remedies, food diets, allergy elimination, you name it. By chance, due to a tummy bug, I discovered GRAPEFRUIT. After eating ORGANIC ruby red grapefruits (a whole one, no sugar, skins peeled) or natural grapefruit seed extract (12-14 drops in 8oz of water) once a day, everyday for 7 days or so, my skin stopped breaking out. Once every few months, one or two will pop up right before my period, but I hardly notice. That was a year ago. Now, I must admit that Ive missed a few days here and there and when I do my skin reacts and breaks out a bit again. Since doing some research on grapefruit seed extract Ive chosen to just eat organic grapefruits. My favorite are larger ruby red ones. They are sweeter and super awesome (: Eating grapefruits has become a daily healing ritual for me. I am SO GRATEFUL to have found this amazing fruit has seriously changed my life, given me permission, so to speak, to feel more confident and radiate my light from within (: I just wanted to share with everyone, maybe it can help you too! (:

I went through my whole puberty life with out a single zit in my face. I promised myself that if I found something that worked I would let the world know it . First of all you need to know why you are breaking out it could be hormonal (get laid , pms) it could be hygiene (you know you slept with make up on ) or in my case it could be stress . I have dealt with allergy break out with are not really pimples does not have pus but they are swollen and hurt . I deal with those using caladryl or calamine . So now being 23 I was told that lay off might happen at work and I started panicking (this is why I would be a terrible criminal) I panic and stress too much . And your body has ways of dealing with this I have woken up with sore teeth from grinding them at night or with my lymph nodes swollen . This time I broke out with tiny white heads all over my forehead. I bought a face wash , I bought another . At the end mothers knows best I found this sulfur cream at Walmart called De la cruz . This is what cleared my break puts with in 3 days and scabs from the ones I had picked at . I thought this is great ! Until it happened the bridge of my nose felt sore like an ingrown pimple . And then the next day another the side of my nose felt sore and that day I saw the after math. I looked like Rudolph the red nose reindeer . I tried sulfur again it didn't work . I tried caladryl, calamine. Then I read about lemon , garlic, apple cider vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and tea tree oil. If you have a golden skin tone as mine do not try this these are bleaching agents for our skin . I asked my mom again . And by this time I had the 2 in my nose another one in the opposite side of my nose and one in my cheek . You know how painful that is . So this is what my mom said get vicks (yes we are Mexican we use this for everything) and hydrocortisone or Dr Smith (baby butt rash cream) and and a little bit of boric acid . So I did that last night and this morning and after I got out of work and bam you can even tell they are there . Now since my first break out I have treating my skin with Pomada de La Campana ( Walmart 0.99) and my skin is super soft and dark spots have been fading. I'm glad I found this remedy I was about to spend 5 hours dripped in microwaved sperm .Or try proactive which has terrible reviews. Sorry for any grammar errors my phone is being a wacko
