I've tried various remedies throughout the years for acne; benzoyl peroxide worked ok, hp worked okay and helped them go away faster but I felt those were just treating the symptoms, not the problem. Accutaine works great but it's tough to get and we all know about Big Pharma and its evils. I went to the health food store last month, and the guy took one look at me and reccomended Neem leaf and a colon cleanse. I followed his instructions - a colon cleanse pill at night and 3,440 mg Neem leaf pills in the morning. Gosh, I wish I'd found this sooner. Within a week my skin was clearing up, and now I take 2 pills a day and no colon cleanse anymore - I just eat healthy (ish). My skin is completely clear now - I get one or two blemishes around that time of the month and they are minor and easy to take care of. Magic! Yay! Neem is also suppossed to be good for treating other skin conditions too, I'm not sure what but I'm sure it's on the Internet.
