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 online 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 online 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!:)

Cleared me up pretty quickly. I would recommend this. I struggled with hormonal break outs badly. Nikki was great to work with. Jessie was very helpful when I was needing to do some budgeting. Woot hoot

I recently completed the online Natural Acne clearing program and my skin is way better than when I started. I have been struggling with hormonal acne for years and tried lots of different products, but this program was the only one that made a difference. The product are pretty pricey, but it is cheaper now that I am on the maintenance program. I am not completely clear, but I am satisfied with the results. Thank you Natural Acne Clinic.

This program really works. My son started getting acne when he was 9 years old. We ate healthy and organic and avoided milk products. We began with various over the counter acne meds which worked for 2 years. But when he hit puberty his acne became uncontrollable. His entire forehead was covered with acne and soon his cheeks were breaking out too. We tried a dermatologist and the products they prescribed actually made his face worse. He no longer looked like a 12 year old kid. He looked like a 17 year old with moderate to severe acne and quickly getting worse. The dermatologist wanted to put him on antibiotics. We were not willing to do this unless we tried everything else first. That is when a friend told me about the Natural Acne Clinic. Her son had severe acne for years and his face had completely cleared up on the program. We decided it would be well worth the financial investment if we could spare our son the emotional pain that comes with acne. So we signed up. Within 3 weeks the acne on his cheeks cleared up. It took the entire 16 weeks for his forehead to completely clear up. Now he has some breakouts but not a lot. He is no longer getting teased at school which is well worth the investment! It was difficult for him to stay on the diet, which is probably why it took the full 16 weeks to get clear. I would encourage anyone that has suffered from severe acne to make the sacrifice. It will be worth it.

After several years of trying many many remedies and products to help my teenaged son's severe acne, I stumbled upon this clinic while searching for skin-related vitamin supplements. We scheduled a telephone consultation and began the program. We noticed results right away, and by the end of the second week or so, my son's breakouts had all but stopped. As we progressed through the treatment, the surface of his skin began to improve, and the red scarring diminished significantly. We completed the entire program last week, and are switching over to a maintenance program now. I only wish we had discovered this program sooner. As someone who has researched and tried different things for years, I can without hesitation recommend this program. It works!

Jessi and her team were there for me when I felt so incredibly low. She is an incredible listener and her blended approach to acne works wonders. Internal healing is just as important as external healing and she helped me with both. Don't even waste your time with dermatologists. Their solutions are a slippery, and often health damaging slope, and with Jessi you come out the other side with your health in tact, if not greatly improved!I would recommend her practice to anyone with acne or skin issues!

Supplements that can Cause Acne

Supplements that can Cause Acne

By | 2018-05-13T14:35:51+00:00 March 31, 2016|Acne, Natural Medicine for Acne|

IMPORTANT: Before you beginDo you know YOUR primary acne trigger? Still struggling with an unsure self-diagnosis?

We created a short quiz to help you Discover YOUR Complexion Triggers

hqdefault-2All vitamins are good for you, right? Generally, this is true, but if you have acne-prone skin, this suddenly becomes a false statement.

If your acne has flared up or seems to be getting worse, you may want to look in your medicine cabinet for the supplements listed below that can cause acne. Keep in mind, adding a vitamin or herbal supplement to your routine can unexpectedly trigger a breakout. Below are a few of the common culprits that could be putting you at risk for flare-ups:

  • Vitamin B12: A study done at the University of California Los Angeles concludes that Vitamin B12 is linked to several instances of acne in people that take a B12 supplement. B12, naturally found in animal and dairy products, is essential to the body. Vegetarians and vegans or those not getting enough B12 in their diet can have serious health problems. However, an excess of B12 has been shown to cause a disruption in the skin bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes.

Although more research is required, if you have recently added a B12 supplement, or a multivitamin containing B12, this could be the culprit of your breakout.

  • Multivitamins: Most multivitamins contain iodine and biotin (B7), which when consumed on a regular basis, has been known to cause acne. If you are consuming more than the 150 mcg Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Iodine, then you are consuming too much. Keep in mind that is a daily total including food. If you eat any dairy products, seafood, seaweeds, soy products or “salty” foods, then you are already possible overdosing on iodine.

If you are not already consuming too much iodine in your diet (which most people do), then your multivitamin may be a cause of your acne.

Multivitamins also often contain high amounts B12 as we talked about and could also trigger your acne.

  • Biotin (Vitamin B7): Biotin is in Hair Skin and Nails supplements, B-Complex, multivitamins as well as nutritional drink powders found at your local health food store. Biotin is a common supplement that causes acne because it is in so many places; including, your shampoo and conditioner!

10143353853_9cf269b427_bBiotin is one of the worst offenders when it comes to acne because you would think that this supplement is good for acne- but it is not. Also known as B7 and Vitamin H, Biotin is already naturally produced by the body. Taking these supplements is not only unnecessary, but the excess amount of biotin can cause acne. Since biotin is in hair, skin and nail vitamins, it continues to fly off the shelves.

Here are a few tips for staying Biotin-free:

  1. Toss the multivitamin- 99% of the multivitamins on the market contain biotin and, therefore, trigger acne. Even though they do contain other essential antioxidants and mineral, the biotin, unfortunately, ruins the whole thing. Try replacing your multivitamin with the Healthy Skin Trio, a proven combination of supplements designed to clear acne and reduce inflammation from the inside out while delivering essential nutrients for overall wellness.
  2. Double check your nutritional drink powders- A lot of “healthy” nutritional drinks (even when sold by a health food store or by a friend representing a health and wellness company) can contain biotin or B7 as an added nutrient. There are lots of choices out there, so we recommend switching to something that is biotin-free to stay acne free.
  3. Check the ingredients on your shampoo and conditioner- make sure these beauty products are free of sodium lauryl and laureth sulfate (known pore cloggers) as well as biotin, B7 and Vitamin H.
  4. Minimize foods containing biotin- foods high in biotin include egg yolks, organ meats, avocados and cauliflower. These foods in moderation are best.

Remember that while the above-listed supplements may be an acne trigger, this is NOT the main cause of your acne. As we discussed on the What is Acne? Page, acne is first and foremost a genetic condition of the skin turning over too many dead skin cells (a process called retention hyperkeratosis). For some, taking out a supplement that triggers acne may do the trick. However, in most cases, the acne will also need to be treated with a topical homecare regimen as well.

If you are looking for vitamin or herbal supplements to help with your acne, read up on Vitamin A, Zinc and Selenium. This combination is a better alternative to other supplements that might potentially aggravate acne.

    Hi Jessica,

    I notice that you have warned against sodium lauryl sulphate (sls) in shampoos and conditioners. However sls is one of the last ingredients in your acne vitamin. Is it acting as a preservative?

    • Jessica Gremley August 7, 2017 at 12:33 am - Reply

      Hi Colette,
      Great question! Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a pore clogging ingredient when used in laundry detergent and cleanser. In other words, it clogs the pores from the outside in. It is not problematic with the Vitamedica Healthy Skin supplement we recommend.

    Thank you! I am 52 years old and have had such a bad breakout of acne, I thought it was shingles! I stopped taking the Biotin two days ago and will take it no longer.

    • Jessica Gremley August 7, 2017 at 12:36 am - Reply

      That’s great Linda! I hope you have noticed a difference. Acne can be due to various different “triggers”, such as also diet or hormones. If you are still breakout out a Virtual Consultation with one of our Clear Skin Coaches will help you identify your primary acne triggers!

    The only reason I was taking a multivitamin was to get more energy and for good health. I have noticed that it has caused me to break out more… do you recommend an alternative that will help with energy levels?

    • Jessica Gremley August 7, 2017 at 12:31 am - Reply

      Hi Candace,
      Thanks for this question! I love the Country Live Amino Acids for energy. They work great and will not trigger acne.

    I took the quiz and it showed me that I have gut imbalance, it seems to be right since I only got acnes on both side of my cheeks (by the ear areas). What can I do to rebalance my gut health?

    • Gwen Stanley November 2, 2017 at 5:28 pm - Reply

      Hi Peta, if you are just interested in re-balancing gut health, I would recommend our Probiotic-8 for Acne, by VitaMedica. This probiotic supplement will work to replenish beneficial gut bacteria, and contains strains of bacteria that specifically target acne. You will notice that your digestive health improves, and with it, your acne. If you are interested in targeting the acne topically as well as internally, I would recommend Natural Acne Clinic’s 16-week online program to get clear and balanced, inside and out.

    Hi,
    I’ve just came across your page and I really hope you’d be able to give me some advice. I’ve recently noticed that my hair has been falling out more than normal, so I’ve started taking a supplement with Biotin in it, but now I’ve found that my skin is breaking out quite badly. Would you know of anything that I could try that wouldn’t have bad side effects. I really appreciate all your help. Thank you so much.

    I am taking notrol biotin but causes me breakout why

    • Gwen Stanley October 27, 2017 at 11:27 am - Reply

      Hi Alison, biotin causes the skin to breakout because it increases cellular turnover. Excess dead skin causes build-up and congestion in the pores, which then results in an acne breakout. Acne-prone skin is already producing skin cells at 5 times the rate of a normal cell, so when we take biotin, we are exacerbating this condition. I hope this helps answer your question!

    • Gwen Stanley November 2, 2017 at 5:11 pm - Reply

      Hi Alison, biotin causes breakouts because this supplement increases skin cell production. When we are acne-prone, our skin is already over-producing skin cells, and increasing the rate of production only causes more congestion in the pore, resulting in inflammation and acne breakouts.

  8. Michele Stevens March 5, 2018 at 1:34 pm - Reply

    Hello,
    If you take Biotin for hair loss or to try to grown your hair and give it strength what other product would you recommend? I see that Sara had the same question.

    Thank you,

    Michele

      Hi Michele- Thank you so much for visiting our blog and leaving a comment. You can look into Collagen Powder supplements, Bone Broth, as well as, our Healthy Skin located in our online store. As you have read, Biotin (B7) is supportive for hair, skin, and nails, yet for acne prone skin it contributes to the rapid cell turnover and breakouts. Continue to checkout our blog for additional supportive information! 🙂
