One controversial book, proposes an alternative
treatment for adult acne, including a strict diet
(dairy is totally avoided in all but two recipes)
and topicals containing alpha lipoic acid. But this
book's claims did not seem to be backed up by strong
scientific evidence until the publication of the
acne / milk link in early 2005. There are no
double-blind studies proving the effectiveness of
fatty acids against acne.
Popping a pimple or any physical acne treatment
should not be attempted by anyone but a qualified
dermatologist. Pimple popping irritates skin, can
spread the infection deeper into the skin and can
cause permanent scarring.
Home remedies: Some people claim that several things
in an average kitchen like nutmeg, honey, cinnamon,
garlic, orange peel, sandalwood, etc can cure acne.
None of these methods have been scientifically
Left my skin feeling much softer with a healthy glow, and existing spots
began healing immediately. My skin is now completely clear of acne and
has been for over a year and a half! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
