Please follow your heart. This is my advice to you. Your acne will never be cured if you can't follow your heart. Don't think that it is pointless. It is not. Following your heart is one important thing that you need to do before you achieve your holy grail... a clear skin.
Many adults have suffered from acne, and they suffered from acne because of their ignorance. They are ignorance of the voice within. They are ignorant of the voice that tells them how to stop the disaster. They don't want to hear it. They don't believe it. Instead, they believe in dermatologist and hardcore advertisers that sell them drugs that only make their condition worse.
You shouldn't be like them. You don't have to hate those dermatologists for their inability to help you overcome your situation. You don't have to hate those acne products that are constantly being advertised on TV and infomercials. You just need to realize about yourself, and start following your intuition. Your intuition means everything. You might disregard your intuition now, but it's more important than you think.
Intuition helps you to move forward, to fight acne. We are living in a world where acne is common. Why? There are many complicated reasons. Acne formed on many people because of the complex combination... foods, chemicals, polluted environment, unclean water, and on and on. You will find endless combination that will trigger acne to form into your skin. But, those are just prickles of the real problem. The real problem is YOU. Why do you accept those things and let those things to form your acne?
It might not make sense for now, but you have to know that YOU are the key in curing your own acne. The healing process is constantly happening inside your body. You just don't realize it. Therefore, help your body. Help through its healing process. Make it easy to heal your acne. Hear your inner voice that tells you constantly about what you should do toward your body.
This is an important exercise, but most people with acne don't care about that. You have to CARE about it. Intuition means everything to you at this point. You can't let acne to dominate your life. You can't let it sit in your face for the rest of your life. You just CAN'T. You don't want it to happen.
Moreover, do something with the way you treat your body. You expose it to too many chemicals in a day. You want to step back and go back to nature. Your body needs healing, and most healing should be done naturally.
