The Acne Cure

I wanted to let anyone who suffers with acne know about a book called, The Acne Cure: The Nonprescription Plan That Shows Dramatic Results in as Little as 24 Hours.  Following the plan has given me great results. There are a few different products you will need:
  • 2% Salicylic Face Wash (kills surface bacteria)
  • 10% Glycolic Acid (promotes cell turnover)
  • 10% Benzoyl Peroxide (kills bacteria in pores)
  • A face moisturizer you like (oil-free)
  • Ice cubes (helps get the benzoil peroxide into the cells to kill the bacteria)
  • Ice pack (optional)
*Start slow with one step at a time over the course of a week


DIRECTIONS: In the morning and at night I use a 2% Salicylic wash like one of these. 

 Put a small amount of wash in your palm and mix in water until it foams up, then put it on your face. Leave it on your face for about a minute or more, so it can kill the surface bacteria (if it's too drying, just put it on and wash it back off immediately).  You can put in on in the shower, then wash your hair, then wash it off your face: 

MORNING: I follow the face wash with 10% Glycolic Acid and moisturizer. I've found the best prices for 10% Glycolic Acid at Ulta or Amazon for  Alpha Hydrox Oil-Free Formula.




NIGHT: At night I do the face wash again and follow the face wash by rubbing an ice cube everywhere on my face until it is VERY cold, then I put the 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment in my palm and mix a little cold water with it (from the ice cube) and put it all over my face (watch out for your eyebrows and shirt it will bleach them).  I like this one: 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel   

Then I put an ice pack on my face and rest  for about 10 minutes.  Most of the time I don't do this--I'm just too tired--but it still works and my acne is TONS better in the morning.



One of the surprising things in the book is using ice to get the benzoyl peroxide into the pores and help get rid of the inflammation and blemishes. It really works! There are great reviews that go into the details on Amazon.

 PS: The GLYCOLIC acid treatment also gets rid of fine lines!  It is awesome stuff! 


PSS: When you first start this program GO SLOW so your skin gets used to the products.  Only do the NIGHT routine at first, then after a week add in the morning program.  If your face gets too dry or reacts then go back to once a day.

Another great new treatment for acne is the Illumask Light Acne Therapy
Clinical trials showed significant improvement in skin with only 15 minutes of daily use.
