Alternative Acne Treatments | Healthy Alternatives to Accutane and Antibiotics

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 antibiotics
  • 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.

Your skin partially reflects your body's wellbeing.  As one of your 4 main detoxification routes, your skin partially reflects how well your other detox pathways are functioning.

Stephanie Center and I talk about a number of things in this packed episode including:

  • the root causes of acne
  • why exfoliation may be contributing to your acne
  • how to take control of your skin's health

About the Author

Brandy's a formulation scientist and self-proclaimed health geek who loves hiking, gardening, bird-watching, and body boarding. 

Her struggle with acne during her teens and 20s led to a holistic and healthy approach to skincare, embracing skin as an organ to be loved and cared for rather than a canvas to wage war on. 

Since 2008, she's been developing all-in-one products for a simple routine at home, & Rain Organica started when her backpacking friends asked for a portable skincare routine to keep their skin healthy & happy on and off the trails.

You can try Rain Organica for yourself with The Essentials Kit, a complete skincare routine in just 3 steps.
