Natural and Healthier Ways to Treat Acne Prone Skin
Have you ever wondered whether Western medicine's approach to acne is too harsh? When the arsenal includes:

- topical oxidants (like benzoyl peroxide)
- topical photosensitizers (salicylic acid)
- oral antibiotics
- oral drugs like Accutane, birth control, spironolactone
chances are, there's a healthier way to help your skin. It took me about a decade of using these harsh treatments to finally open my eyes to an alternative way, and in this episode, I share some of the things I've learned along my path to healthy skincare to save you the long trip.
