Topical Regimen

One of the most critical ways to keep your skin clear is to use the right topical skin care products.  Many products contain ingredients that can clog your pores or otherwise irritate your skin.  You want to avoid these at all costs.  Also, you will want to use a product line that contains FDA-Approved Acne fighting ingredients, such as those shown in our Ingredient List. 

Beyond having the FDA-approved ingredients, it can make a great difference if the product you choose is also good to your skin.  This means that it should contain ingredients that help heal your skin and reduce irritation.  Some of the important natural ingredients that can help with this are listed in our Acne Comparison Chart and more details of each ingredient can be found on our Scientific and Natural Ingredient List.

FDA-Approved Ingredients: The 2 most widely known and tested Active Acne Ingredients are Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid.  Since they are so important to fighting acne topically, we have created a separate page for each of them in order to better educate you on their benefits and side-effects.  Please click on the links below to go to these pages:

Many users report that acne treatments with a combination of Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic acid is an effective acne treatment for their skin.


Many people think that their lifestyle has no impact on their acne, and although there has been little done to study this, our experience and that of our users is that it can dramatically affect your skin. This is most apparent in a few areas: Cleanliness, Exercise and Stress.

When we talk about cleanliness, we are most concerned with how often you wash your face and how clean the fabrics are that are near your skin. As with any acne treatment, we recommend that you wash your face twice per day, using a gentle cleanser made for acne-prone skin. Washing too much can dry out your skin while washing to little may allow too much sebum and oil to build up. With regard to the fabrics on your skin, your bedding, including you pillowcase is the biggest culprit. We recommend that you wash your bedding, or at least your pillowcase twice per week. When you wash it, we suggest you use a detergent with little or no irritating ingredients like fragrance. Many companies make great detergents that are less likely to irritate your skin. Additionally, it might be wise to skip the scented fabric softeners, which can irritate some people's skin.

Exercise is an important part of your life, regardless of whether or not you have acne. Moderate exercise has many benefits including helping your body rid itself of toxins. When exercising, we really only have 2 things we think that you should keep in mind.

1. Don't over do it. There is no need to work your body beyond what feels right. Exercising too much or too vigorously can cause harm.

2. Wash your face immediately after you exercise. This is very important since a lot of oil and sebum can build up when you exercise.

Lastly, a stressful life can lead to more frequent breakouts. While some amount of stress is healthy, too much can cause problems not only with your skin, but also with your entire body. Remember to breath deeply, especially when you are stressed. This is your body's #1 way to eliminate waste and also can help you relax during stressful situations. One big problem with stress is that many people get stressed about their acne, which cause more acne, it is a kind of catch 22. Try to remember that acne will not last forever and you are not alone. Many people have acne, especially during their teens, and it will pass.


Whether or not what you eat affects your skin has been of scientific debate for years. There is evidence that points in both ways, some showing that certain foods can cause or at least aggravate your acne and some evidence showing that it does not matter what you eat. We believe that it is better to be safe than sorry. It turns out that many of the foods have shown some evidence of causing acne also may not be the healthiest, therefore, avoiding them most of the time is good for your health and possibly for your skin.

Probiotics are bacteria that help your body digest food and stay balanced. Recently, many companies have realized this and started putting them in some foods, like yogurt, which also contains naturally occurring probiotics. Much evidence has pointed to Probiotics improving your immune system and your body's elimination of waste. We feel that supplementing with Probiotics can be good for your overall health and for your skin. The only skin care company that we know that offers Probiotics with the sole purpose of clearing acne is Exposed Skin Care. That product can be found on their Products page as our recommended best acne treatment.

The following foods can help produce healthy and clearer skin:

Water ( Of Course! But not too much. See water guidelines here)
Fiber (Helps eliminate waste inside your body)
Quality Protein
Quality Oil (ex. Olive Oil)
Green Vegetables (Leafy veggies are the best)
            Spinach, Broccoli, Kale
Healthy Fruits and Nuts
            Blueberries, Almonds, Walnuts etc.


The following list of foods can aggravate acne:

All Sugars and Sugary Foods
White Flour/Bread
Dark Colas
Acidic Foods
Uncooked Mushrooms
Iodine (shellfish)
Hydrogenated Oils
Molded Foods like Bleu Cheese

**Before changing your diet, please consult your physician for any dietary needs or restrictions you may have.
