So happy you wrote back. It is best when the entire regimen is used as that’s the way the formulas are based.  As far as the pricing is concerned, I agree it is intimidating!  Each regimen lasts 30 to 60 days and comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.  Broken down, they can be as little as $1.50 a day.   Become a Preferred Customer and get first dibs on new products and enjoy free shipping on each replenishment order. (Which by the way, you can delay at any time for as long as you want.) Another option is to become a consultant and enjoy an even greater discount.  There is so much more information I can share. Where are you located?  Is there a convenient time that we could discuss via phone?  Thanks for the inquiry!

I’ve been getting a bit of acne again over the past few weeks, and have switched to a gel based moisturiser rather than a regular one. Also using a glycolic acid toner that was recommended to me.

I have also cut out dairy again, which is something that helped me greatly when I had acne previously.

When was your last course of Isotretinonin (accutane)? Where I live they won’t prescribe it to under 18’s in most cases, as it isn’t usually as effectve until after puberty. It is most effective after your hormone levels have settled to what they will be as an adult. I hope to be starting my first course soon! Like you, I have found all topical treatments pretty much useless. Antibiotics usually help to clear it slightly, but they play havoc with my digestive system and my acne comes back in full force once the course is finished.

As you stated, dietary changes can be effective in reducing the severity of the acne. Cutting out dairy, meat and refined sugar, and encorporating far more vegetables and unrefined carbohydrates has helped immensely. I aways notice a difference in my skin within a week if I start to eat unhealthily again. I also aim to drink a minimum of 2 litres of water per day, as staying hydrated helps too.

Some people find that wheat/gluten or soy are triggers for their acne, so it’s worth a trial elimination.

italianbride0508 :  Reiterating what you’re saying. It may seem simplistic, but a lot of people overlook their diets and how what they consume can affect their complexions. My skin cleared up after I cut out most dairy and wheat products since those cause inflammation. I also recommend applying a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar all over your face after cleansing to help balance your skin’s pH levels. You can try drinking it diluted in water as well.

Hey bee!! I’m so sorry that you’re struggling with this. I’m in the same boat.

We are on the same page with diet, water and wanting to keep things natural. I love eminence products for that very reason. 

What is your exercise routine? My clearest days are when I’ve been well disciplined with my diet and I’ve ran 4 times a week for 2 months in a row. IT SUCKS when I fall off the routine, but this is my life now. I tried switching to a routine that involves more strength days, but I’ve found that I need to run, sweat and get the good blood moving to keep my skin clear. Have you tried this?

You may need to re-examine why you are so hesitant about roaccutane. I know it’s unpleasant and can make you dry and flaky, but a proper length course with a good dose as advised by your dermatologist may be the only thing that will fix this. Many people have to do several courses of it. Also ask them about laser facials post-roaccutane and also retinol cream to manage scarring and unevenness.

I haven’t read all of the posts, but I suggest cutting out sugar and processed fooda comppletely. I also highly recommend supplements DIM and Stinging Nettle, both will balance out your hormones.
