I have struggled with acne for the past 10+ years and tried everything to get rid of it. Over the years I have spent a lot of money, tried multiple lines of topical acne products, dermatologists, medication, but nothing worked. After finding the Natural Acne Clinic online, the only reason I was hesitant was because of the cost. But it was absolutely worth every penny! Not only is my acne now under control, but my skin (and entire body) is healthier than it's ever been. I truly did not think these results would be possible in just 4 months! My skin is so smooth and has a healthy glow that I never in a million years thought was possible with my skin that had suffered for so long. Their natural approach to acne treatment is exactly what I needed. I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone. Don't let the cost stop you like it almost stopped me. It's not just your face, it's the health of your entire body that you are investing in!

There are more than 5 stars to be given to two women who can—without ever seeing me in person—transform my skin in a matter of a couple months. I heard about the clinic by googling. I asked a friend who lives in Denver if she'd heard of this place as she has similar skin issues—her dermatologist recommended she try this clinic because he admitted he couldn’t offer her what he knew they could. I joined the distance program, as I live in the Midwest. It was pretty easy to follow the guidance: tweak the diet, eliminate foods and products that hurt you, and use products that support your skin and the job is it trying to do. There were two things I’d say were the best: (1) complete and instant elimination of the paranoia of “what’s my skin doing today and what can I do to deal with it?” and (2) my skin looks better now that most people my age, even after all the years of acne—sure I have some scars from cysts, but I like my glow and texture—and that makes using make-up fun. I feel like my facial features stand out much more.instead of acne and redness. The downsides for me: (1) the program cost was a bit of a shock. That said, now that I’m in the maintenance regimen, the cost is more than fair for peace of mind and wonderful skin ($100 every 3-4 months, I guess). I’m saving tons in the long-run as I won’t be buying harmful chemicals ever again (that includes harmful hair and bath products). (2) the breakouts in the first couple weeks were frustrating—they were worse than what I started with! The coach helped me though. I could tell that my skin was improving on the whole, but getting clear was an uphill climb for a good 8 weeks. Get through that, and you’ll be cartwheeling around town. I’m 38 and suffered on-off cystic acne and hormonal acne and rosacea-type stuff for about 15 years. Don’t wait. Don’t hope and try what your friend with perfect skin uses--she doesn’t have our problem. Don’t do drugs, either. I highly recommend this clinic. Yours with clear skin and a smile, KM

This clinic’s long-distance program helped me tremendously in getting more education about the possible causes for my acne. I was supported and held accountable while sticking to the program and the recommendations. This program is a wonderful option if you have already tried so many medications and skin care regimens. I found a lot of valuable insight and an improvement in my self-esteem through completing this program. My skin is so much clearer, and my body feels healthier. This was definitely worth it for me.

For the last decade, I tried what felt like every product, supplement, and medicine that claimed to get rid of my acne, to no avail. From the start, Nikki and Casey were attentive, understanding, and confident that their program would clear me, even though I had my doubts. I knew it'd be a substantial investment for me, but I was tired of throwing money at ineffective or unsustainable solutions. I'm 1 month into maintenance, and I haven't broken out ONCE in the last 2 months, which was an unfathomable reality for me 6 months ago. The products and supplements are top notch. After the first couple of peels, I could see a difference in all my past scaring and pigmentation. When I started seeing results around a month in, I decided to give up all dairy and meat in addition to their diet recommendations (not required). Whether it was from the vegan diet, probiotics, herbs or the combination of all three, I feel so much better! I have so much more energy, fewer headaches & digestive issues, no more brain fog and feel way less achy and tired in general - all in addition to having clear skin :) The only downside about the program was that it did cost more than estimated range on the website, and they were occasionally out of products I needed, so I had to pay for extra shipping or drive 30 minutes to the clinic to pick it up. Ultimately though, the cost is definitely worth it. I'm really grateful to the Natural Acne Clinic not only for my completely clear skin, but my regained confidence, mental clarity, and overall health! Thank you so much!

I would 100% recommend this clinic and acne program to anyone who struggles with acne and can’t get rid of it using topical products. I was a little skeptical at first because I have tried just about everything for my skin and didn’t think the “natural way” would be effective enough for me. I was wrong. It was a commitment to make the diet and lifestyle changes, but in the end well worth it. I started feeling better, noticed less breakouts. By the 90 mark of my 16 week program, I had SUCH few breakouts. I was used to getting 10+ new breakouts in a 2 week span, now I was getting 2, if that. I am so happy with my results, now just dealing with getting rid of hyperpigmentation, but they work with you through that too! You’re able to reach out to your coach whenever you need to, even after your program ends.

After struggling with acne for so many years, it's hard to believe that there is something out there that actually works. The Natural Acne clinic is seriously amazing. They have taken all the guesswork out of the process, which for me, was huge, because I've spent SO many hours pretty much reading the entire internet in regards to natural acne cures. Not only was having acne terrible, but the endless search for answers was overwhelming and so emotionally draining!! They customized a program for me and within 2 weeks or so I started seeing less and less breakouts...By month 2, if I did get a breakout they were small and were gone so quickly...such a crazy change from the scary painful monster zits I used to get on my chin that would literally stick around for weeks. Each week I was improving and by month 4 I had no acne and my skin was truly glowing. It was so incredible. I still cannot believe I am one of the success stories! The program is definitely an investment, but it is without a doubt, some of the best money I have ever spent! Having clear skin has positively impacted so many other ares of my life. I am beyond thankful that I found this place...and so grateful to all the wonderful people at Natural acne clinic that helped me get clear! Thank You!!!

Natural Acne Clinic has been the best thing to happen to my skin. Dealing with hormonal acne in my 40s took a toll on my confidence and on my wallet. I was spending a lot of money on expensive acne products, medications and treatments that promised me a clear complexion but left me sadly disappointed. I worked with the Natural Acne Clinic via their virtual program and I can say that I am finally LOVING my skin again. The change has been amazing to say the least. I would recommend this program to anyone seeking clear and healthy skin. Worth EVERY PENNY. Thank you Natural Acne Clinic for helping me achieve clear skin!

My acne started getting severe and I didn’t want to do any treatments through the dermatologist that could be harmful to my body so I started looking for natural alternatives. Somehow I came across The Natural Acne Clinic and I am so beyond grateful to these amazing professionals for helping me get control of my inflamed, cystic acne! I am also grateful for their virtual coach program as I am from the Chicago area. Not only am I completely clear, but I am healthier and more knowledgeable overall! It takes a lot of patience and dedication to go the natural route but it is 100% worth it!:)

Hormonal Acne Caused by Androgen & Testosterone Imbalances

Hormonal Acne Caused by Androgen & Testosterone Imbalances

By | 2018-02-13T23:32:27+00:00 August 11, 2014|Hormonal Acne|

One of the more common triggers of hormonal acne (in teens and adult females) is an imbalance of the Androgen hormone, which is the form of Testosterone. Yes, that is correct, women and men both have the male hormone testosterone. More and more women these days have androgen levels that are too high, and this triggers acne, oily skin and even dark facial hair on women.

Let’s take a look at some of the common causes of increased Androgen and some solutions:

low-dose birth control pills

Click here to see a full list of Birth Control Pills to avoid.

birth control pills

These tablets and devices are low in Estrogen and, therefore, tend to increase the bodies Androgen levels as the Estrogen drop. Think of a teeter-totter…as one goes down the other goes up.

As a general rule of thumb, those with the potential for higher androgenic symptoms should be avoided for people prone to acne because they promote breakouts. As an acne sufferer, it is critical to speak with your doctor about selecting a form of birth control that is higher in estrogen and lower in androgen potency.

SOLUTION: Take out the IUD or come off the low-dose birth control pill and switch to a safe tablet if you are on birth control for a said reason. Here at Natural Acne Clinic, we are not proponents of using birth control pills or devices to “balance” hormone levels or to clear acne. With that said, it is ok to be on certain types of birth control to prevent pregnancy and keep your skin clear.

Should you want to remain on birth control while on our 16-week Virtual Acne Clearing Program, there are specific types of pills that are acceptable and will not make acne worse.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Some women are genetically predisposed to having higher than average Androgen levels and have PCOS. Remember that acne is a genetic skin condition, not a hormone condition, so not all women with elevated Androgens will get acne.

PCOS is a condition in which women have an imbalance of female sex hormones. It is linked to low levels of estrogen and progesterone and high androgen levels. It is not entirely understood why or how the changes in hormone levels occur. This hormonal imbalance causes the woman’s ovaries do not release eggs. Instead, they form tiny cysts.

Symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Lack of a period or an irregular period
  • Acne
  • Body hair growing on the chest, naval, face or around the nipples
  • Thinning of the hair on the head
  • Dark skin markings around the neck, armpits, groin or breasts
  • Decreased breast size

The increase in the male androgen hormone is responsible for causing these male-characteristic symptoms.

A few natural treatments for PCOS include diet modifications to lower androgen levels, Saw Palmetto herbs and Omega-3 Fish Oil supplements. While the birth control pill and Spironolactone might be the most popular way to control PCOS, it is by no means the only option.

If you suspect you may have PCOS, please visit your physician.

Stress

Have you heard a little thing called fight or flight? When you are over-worked and stressed without taking time to relax, the body will go into a constant state of fight or flight which is controlled by the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands store androgens (aka testosterone).

Therefore, too much stress and go-go-go, and not enough relaxation of the mind and body will cause androgen levels to increase and trigger acne. This is especially so for women as females process stress through the adrenal glands but men process stress through the testes.

While it may be hard to just “stop stressing,” it is easy to support your body with herbs so that these androgen surges do not spike your testosterone levels and trigger a breakout. We have formulated an Adrenal Support Formula that does not contain any acne triggering ingredients (like other supplements for stress do) and helps reduce stress and acne related breakouts.

 

hormone free cowDiet

Any food that is not found in nature, i.e soy-based products, meat not raised hormone-free or without antibiotics, cow’s milk, high fructose corn syrup, GMO foods, packaged food, fast food, soda, gluten have an adverse effect on our body because they do not provide the nutrients our body needs to be in balance. Soy, meat, whey protein powder and dairy products can even alter our hormones because they contain hormones.

Overall, the link between androgens and other triggers is quite strong. But there is nothing our Clear Skin Coaches couldn’t solve!

Are you ready to finally clear your acne once and for all? We are here to help.

If you have tried it all and still have acne, our comprehensive 16-week program is the answer. Start with a 360 Complexion Analysis with one of our Clear Skin Coaches to get your customized Acne Clearing Treatment Plan!
