Non-Rx ways to reduce acne

(1) Drink green tea- Reduces oil produced by skin.

(2) Zinc suppliments- Aids skin in repairing damaged cells. Many people who have acne are found defficient in zinc.

(3) Brewers yeast pills- Contains B5 and other vitamins.

(4) Acidophilus pills- Symbiotic bacteria that reduce acne.

(5) Benzoyl peroxide- Oxidizes the skin and anything on it (bacteria). Acne bacteria cannot develop immunity to this.

(6) Sulphur soap- Kills acne bacteria also.

(7) Do not eat sugar or refined grains: anything with a high glycemic response causes the skin to produce excess oil.
