If you or someone you know suffers from acne then you know how many so called acne alternative treatments there are floating around that claim to cure your problematic acne, zits and skin blemishes. A simple search on Google for acne alternative treatments brings up almost 1,500,000 sites to choose from. That’s a lot of information for anyone suffering from pimples and other acne related symptoms. I mean seriously who has the time to search through over one million sites all claiming to have some new acne alternative treatment that can effectively eliminate zits and cure your acne leaving you with cleaner, fresher looking skin?
Even if you do take on the task of visiting many of these acne treatment sites you can get easy swayed into thinking every acne alternative treatment works 100% of the time. Let’s face it, many of those sites have testimonies from people that used to suffer from acne related skin problems but are now cured. Unfortunately there is where the problems begin. You see when it comes to treating acne, zits, pimples and blackheads not everyone reacts to treatments the same way or enjoys the success of fully eliminating their acne. Not every person will benefit from the same facial treatments, acne skin care products or nutritional diets recommended by many of these acne treatment websites. The sad truth is many of these acne eliminating products can be about as useful as snake oil in treating your acne breakouts without the proper diagnoses by a licensed dermatologist. Even then all of the Accutane, topical ointments and antibiotics they provide may not be enough or the correct way to treat our particular outbreak of acne.
With all of that said there are some alternative acne treatments that you may want to consider when trying to find a way to eliminate your zits. The first thing to keep in mind is that acne isn’t just relegated to you and you alone. Millions of people have suffered or continue to suffer from some form of acne related skin condition. Chances are you may know one or more people who have had acne and found a way to control it from breaking out again. If so check with them and find out what type of treatments they used. It’s very possible they will be able to recommend an alternative acne treatment that you may not have previously heard about.
If you’re interested in the professional advice of an acne alternative healer then perhaps you should seek out a Naturopath. They normally prescribe a regiment of herbs, vitamins and skin cleansers that can show an amazing improvement on your skins condition. They can also save you a nice sum of money on expensive acne treatment medications. For instance did you know that Accutane (which is quite expensive) is a derivative of Vitamin A? Using the services of a Naturopath you can be prescribed high dosages of Vitamin A to treat your acne related symptoms and problems.
Another new development in the treatment of acne involves using blue and red ultraviolet rays or light. This light therapy, as it is commonly called, mimics the treatment you would receive from a very expensive esthetician. A typical device when searched for online can probably be found for anywhere from $190 – $210. As you can see these are just a few of the ways acne alternative treatments can help cure your acne and save you time and money.
