  • No one prepared me for adult acne. I had a lot of issues growing up and especially in my teenage years and I always used to tell myself "at least you got good skin genes." At age 19, I started noticing my pores on my nose were getting bigger and bigger, my skin redder, small breakouts every other month (which was a lot for me, I had flawless skin before) and now nearing the end of my 22nd year, I have cystic acne, I have active breakouts at all times (havent had a break between them in 2 months) currently I have a cyst the size of a gumball on my chin, the skin on my nose and forehead is bumpy and flaky no matter what i do, and i have constant breakouts all across my jaw.

  • Great points. Really wish you had touched on the hormonal aspects-- this is rarely understood. I am nearly 40, perimenopausal, my weight fluctuates between 155 and 165 at 5'7", and every time I intensify my workout to lose that pesky 5-7 pounds... TOTAL FACE ERUPTION. A woman's body requires a certain amount of body fat to produce the proper levels of female hormones. Whenever those reserves are taken out, I break out. When the weight comes back in the winter the acne totally goes away. So it's either have pizza face or look perpetually 4 months pregnant. Hormonal acne is understood by very few, so I'm still trying to find the balance...at nearly 40...

  • The medical system is corrupt and making billions of dollars off of acne. I've been dealing with cyctic chin acne for 12 years chronic . I am 55 years old extremely depressed. Doctor refuses to put me on accutane, today I'm going to my appointment with zero makeup...going to make her LOOK AT IT. Not wearing makeup for anyone anymore!!!

  • I have acne but I wear makeup most days but I just like makeup so you can still see my acne through it but sometimes I just go to school with no makeup on and don’t care 🤷‍♀️ you just have to remember that everyone gets it at some point and if anyone thinks that your not pretty because of acne then that probably means that they are insecure about something,because putting you down makes them feel better about themselves

  • No one tells you that everyone’s acne experience is different. Mine are skin colored bumps that simply can’t be covered with makeup because it doesn’t make a difference. Exfoliating doesn’t help either. Every time someone tries to tell me to wash my face more or less or use this or that I want to scream because I’m the ONLY person I know who has this. I have no clue what it is. People tell me that mine isn’t bad and that other people have it worse but it’s so frustrating because I feel like I’m weird because of it.

  • PILLOWCASES AND BLANKETS YOU HOLD BY FACE WHEN SLEEPING!!! Omg! This was a huge game changer for my adult acne! I take a multitude of meds for a MULTITUTE of separate chronic illnesses currently...and many of these not only mess with my gut, cause the dry mouth issue, and many more. But, I know there are a couple that I have to take that also cause acne on my face AND NOW my upper back/shoulder area! Uhg. I have a couple things to try to fight back that have been probably the best things over the years that have become my go to's. I LOVE regular Coke Classic! But if I drink more than one 12 oz bottle in a two week/3 wk period, face will start screaming. Girl! EVERYTHING you have said, sadly I am where you are in some ways! I had to learn it all over years and years of trial and error. Thankfully the worst of my facial acne was about 2 years ago when I first became ill. And obviously WE now know that it's often toxins or other "stuff 'n things" that are pushed from our bodies out of our pores! Being at that time I had "only" been diagnosed with a type of autoimmune disease, looking back on those photos from the onset of illness to now is astounding. My health overall has gotten worse, but my skin has thankfully improved from learning what to stay away from and what to increase with. She knows what she is saying folks! And I had to learn it myself, you all are lucky!

  • Like what Cassandra said, nobody tells you that you can overdo medication. My derm gave me 5 different acidic solutions along with a harsh soap to apply day and night. He told me not to apply anything moisturising. You can imagine what a disaster that turned out to be. What really helped me was stepping away from dermatologists and finding my own routine. What actually helped me and even cured my acne was switching to all baby products from Bioderma and balancing out my hormones. I wish I had known this 12 years ago though, I wouldn't have left so much scarring on my face had I known it earlier.

  • I have chronic Lyme disease and unfortunately have had no choice but lots of abx for a while now. I am horrified your derm would put you on 800 mgs of minocycline. For severe, neurological Lyme disease, my doctors would never ever rx me more than 200 mg of doxy or mino per day. Awful.

  • Most people feel that acne can only be cured by skin care products. I began my company 18 years ago because of my Grade 3 acne - so I understand this entirely. What we try very hard to spread with our customers is that DIET plays a huge role in your skin. Liver cleansing and candida on the skin are big problems. We utilize Face Mapping. That is so very helpful in finding the true causes of what is showing up on your face. Thank you for such an informative video. I truly enjoyed it. You are a beautiful girl. Very best wishes in your career.

  • The Standard American Diet (SAD) of refined man made foods is causing many of the health problems today. Acne is the visual que that something is wrong with our overall health. Get rid of sugar first if all. Sugar is added to all processed food because it is highly addictive (corporations control information to protect their bottom line). Sugar is highly processed and becomes a poison and an acid that throws the body into a cycle of defense trying to cope with this invader. Get rid of refined (white) flour which also acts as a refined sugar. Get back to a diet that God created for us. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans whole original grains (non-hybridized), rice. Limit the amount of meat and dairy. Clean up your diet. It will be hard at first because a bad diet has addictive qualities. But once you get past the pain of addiction your taste buds will be reconditioned to enjoy natural (real) foods that work with our bodies and heal our diseases caused by the processed diet. It may cost more to buy groceries, but you will save thousands on healthcare costs.

  • One of the biggest things that bothers me the most about acne, is that SO many parents and family members, but specifically parents, act like it’s **NO BIG DEAL or **part of life or teen life...and they do absolutely nothing. I always say “if your child had a rash on their arm, you would take them to the doctor or do SOMETHING!! But, they have something on their FACE and you do nothing!? People without acne and especially scars think “I’m glad I don’t have that” but they really have NO idea just how painful it is. No one talks about how I have every single scar memorized on the exact location of my face. I know when I got it and what type of pimple caused it. I always think “if I could just choose 5 or 10 big scars to erase, id be so much happier. No one tells you that 99% of acne scar removal things cost a ton of money but actually do NOTHING to take them away.

  • Thank you for this video. I had severe acne in my teens and early 20s until I took Roaccutane. I always wondered about the origin of my acne as it doesn't run in our family. Skin conditions like eczema is in the family though and my mother cannot tolerate dairy, but anything I ate or didn't eat never seemed to make any difference. My acne had a very specific pattern, starting on my forehead, moving down to my temples (where I have scars) and then around my mouth and side of my nose. Luckily I never had acne on my cheeks. I think stress might have triggered it, but still I'm not sure. I did lots of the topical solutions that stripped the skin and made it shiny and thin. Not good.

  • Huge huge hugeeee things that absolutely changed my life, I had the worswwt skin since I was about 12, I went on oratane/roaccutane four times, and every time it would come back, I also tried antibiotics, as well as topical medication and hormonal pills which all didn't work. YES cutting out dairy made a big difference, sugar I should cut out and i'm sure that would make a difference, but cutting out dairy and meat, then taking ZINC and LYSINE supplements together have quite literally changed my life. Every friend I tell this to has had the same thing happen. You can get these supplements from any drug/pharmaceuticals store, and just take one of each each day until it goes away. I would also say try and use natural make up or skin care products where possible, avoiding harsh cleansers, toners, scrubs and anything that will dry out the skin too much (scrub once every two weeks maybe). Less is more, let your skin balance itself out because holy shit it works. If this helps any person I'm totally happy because I UNDERSTAND just how much it hurts to have to look at yourself with acne and know people can see and judge you like that. Good luck!

  • Used to get compliments on my clear skin when younger. I told myself I'm not pretty like the other girls but at least they admire me for having clear, glowing skin. Then I had acne when I was 22, and had it until I was in my early 30s. The emotional turmoil. All those days you can't go out of the house because of how horrible your skin looks like. Family events where you can't look into people's eyes because you just knew they can't avoid looking intently on your acne and start to give you advice on what to do with it. Only medication that worked for me is Katialis, a topical cream. Beware though. Do not apply on the whole face -- only apply on top of every zit. Doesn't matter if your face will look like polka dot after applying this. It seemed to kill the bacteria underneath and dries the zit. In 2-3 days, you will see the skin on that zit peel off with a healthy layer of skin. Another upside is that the zit will not come out of that healthy skin again. Unlike with the topical meds that the doctors give you where it only works for a week or two and after that you build some kind of immunity, this topical cream had permanent results (for me, at least). I treated my zit with this cream one by one, not all at once, because I wanted to observe and study how it's curing my acne. The key is, for the cream to stay on on the affected area for as long as possible. So if I felt the cream went to my pillow from moving around while I sleep, I get up and re-apply the cream in the middle of the night. Lost lots of sleep but it was worth it. If you can have it on during day time, a lot better because like I said, consistency is the key. I had chronic acne for years and this cream is the only medication that stopped it. I only used upto 3 small containers the whole time I was trying to fix my acne. Cost less than a dollar here in the Philippines.

  • I really enjoyed and got a lot of value from your video. Thank you. But please be aware you are going too hard with the vocal fry, it doesn't make you sound more authentic or relatable. At the end of every sentence it's excruciating. So many American women do it that you shouldn't take it this feedback too personally. I find it a Strange phenomenon though cos I don't think it ever has the speakers desired effect, I feel it make someone less relatable, without self awareness

  • I’ve been suffering with breakouts since the age 13 !!! I clearly remember my first one on my forehead , didn’t know what it was and kinda liked it but few years later they invaded my face and my battle began when I turban 17 But nothing worked no potion or lotion ! It took me a life time to understand my strange and unique body ! It totally destroyed my self esteem and confidence to point that I’d hide from people whenever could , no relationship no close friends I used to think that god was punishing me for something, eventually I began a journey of self discovery and about 15 years ago I decided to become vegan , of course my research lead me to realise that the dairy products was part the problem, it helped but not totally , I later found out that chocolate was also a culprit, then I found out that sugar and honey was also culprits and then coffee showed itself as a cause too then oily foods especially Transfats also entered in my list and nowadays I am occasionally get one somewhere on my face but I’m now so equipped with battle armour that the occasional breakouts has no chance of survival, my latest discovery is ingesting Blue green algae or Spirulina powder or tablets but they taste terrible but I kinda think they can help, in my case the worst culprits are : number 1) sugary things Number 2:) fatty cheeses Number 3:) butter But I must confess that I kinda can tolerate Goat’s cheese and goat’s butter but only in very small quantities And maybe once or twice a month but the danger is always lurking around when one indulges with dairy products so be aware !! I also think that sun screens can aggregate my skin in a vicious way ! Even the non greasy ones ! The only one that doesn’t aggravate my skin is : Ultra-sun not sure about the spelling though since my iPhone went crazy when I typed it differently!!! It literally wouldn’t let me carry on with my typing! May the angel of acne free skin always be with you all :)

  • I started getting hormonal cystic acne when I was 26. I’m 27 now and have pretty clear skin. What works for me is neutrogena face bar and AmLactin alpha-hydroxy lotion. I’m not sure if the lotion helps my acne, but it’s the only lotion I’ve found that doesn’t break me out. Also I’m crazy about lotion so I can’t go without it. Another thing I did was pop the zit, put a glob of Neosporin on it and a bandaid every night until it went away. I know alcohol isn’t great for your skin, but it really helps getting bandaids off without ripping off your skin. I just drench a cotton round and make swiping motions on the edge of the bandaid until it came off. The Neosporin also helped to prevent scarring. A tip: don’t put Neosporin on healthy skin, it always made me get zits for some reason. I also exfoliate weekly with clean & clear dual action moisturizer. It’s not meant to exfoliate your skin, but it does with me for some reason. It doesn’t help with my acne, but it makes my skin brighter and helps with pigmentation. It also makes my skin look younger. My acne used to look like craters and take weeks to heal. I would avoid going outside and just cry. I never had a problem with acne before so it was a huge hit to my self-esteem. I hope my advice helps!!!! I know it’s devastating to deal with hormonal acne. Please don’t give up. You are not alone and you will find what works for you!!!!!!!!

  • Medical doctors are not the most intelligent people. Many focus just on their learned Merck Manual and do not ask questions concerning " How did this disease, virus etc. come into existence in the first place?" Instead of focusing their brains and capabities on prevention, they just focus on cure by using mainly chemicals which are generating money for the pharmaceutical industry, industry number 1 in the world. A healthy person does not generate money, a sick one does...Without sick people a whole world of physicians, care givers, pharmaceuticals would collapse..The only thing medical doctors do is study pharmacology: what synthetic medicine is right for what condition and what chemical progresses does this chemical cause on the bodily tissues, cells, nerves etc. Doctors should think that every chemically-fabricated drug in a laboratory was invented by a bio-chemist who looked at/was inspired by processes in nature. Chemical drugs are no " Eureka" Einstein-wonder! People in the medical field should feel the innate moral obligation as is part of their profession, to want to eradicate and prevent disease rather than cure..(acne, whatever health condition) Acne on your skin is related to genes, hormones, but foremost your bowels..Bad bowels is ACNE The toxins which could not be eliminated by the bowels come to the surface through your skin Fix your bowels, hold stress at bay, try to correct hormonal influence ( DIM) use thyme oil, a natural anti bacterial and anti-viral! Use Ayurvedic blood purifiers, eat Turmeric and vegan,they help your bowels and stop toxins from coming out through your skin. Topical retinoids help the skin peel and help to get rid of the pimple and wrinkles on the outside. Some people are better of not eating sugar or dairy products (again because their intestines can not break them down properly) Insulin might be a factor too Try not to spike your insulin multiple times a day.

  • I’ve had bacne (back acne) for several years until I changed my hair washing routine. shampoo - rinse, conditioner- rinse. then I put my hair in a towel and only after doing that I wash/shower my body. I just thought I’d leave this little tip here because it might help someone.... That was all it took to get rid of my bacne. before that i had tried lots of things but nothing really worked. ever since I changed my hair washing routine I managed to completely get rid of that bacne simply because Conditioner (and its ingredients) won’t clock the pores on my body anymore. ^^

  • I wish we had the internet and your videos in the 1970s! They would have helped me so much. Even though it appears that people are still suffering with this horrible skin problem, at least now there is more support and info from people like you. You do a fantastic job!

  • Thank you so much for this video. You are saying what I've thought for years. I was a teenager in the 70s so you can imagine the bad advice I was given. I cringe when I think how I treated my skin. Doctors recommended using soap and water and using a sun lamp! I was on antibiotics for years which affected my stomach and gave me other problems. My diet was awful too. I am now in my 60s and left with the scars but I take really good care of my skin and eat a good diet - no dairy!! I am in the process of working on accepting that this is as good as my skin gets. Your vid has given me a boost to help me accept my skin at last. Thank you Cassandra.

  • I’m tired of typing long paragraphs trying to help people clear their acne so let me just sum it up. My acne cleared up once I started changing my pillowcases often and stopped washing them with laundry detergent and started using baking soda instead, I stopped drinking milk and switched over to almond milk. I cut out sugar based drinks out of my diet and i stopped eating junk food, it was hard at first but I got used to it. I stopped washing my face everyday and stopped using skin care products I know it sounds scary but trust me. I exfoliate 1-2 a week ,nothing else!!! And I stopped showering with hot water and started showering with cold water instead. TRY THIS AND I PROMISE YOUR ACNE WILL CLEAR UP!!!!!

    • I’ve been thru it all trust me I used every skin care product you can think of(over exaggerates) but I have used many expensive skin care products and I also even had a clarasonic. I’ve been do the dermatologist so many times and they prescribed me so many products but not nothing seemed to help. I was so consistent with the product they would even give me and I would follow the rules for months but nothing seemed to help until I started doing what I have up there ^^^

  • It took me 2 years to realize an odd coincidence, I started breaking out after I had be wisdom teeth pulled. And it just kept getting worse over those two years. I did find some very interesting things by googling that, a lot of women had that same thing happen.

  • Please please research before saying antibiotics are used to make animals grow in a video that over half a million people are going to watch. If meat has traces of antibiotics it has to be destroyed, it can't be sold for consumption, same with milk, it has to be dumped out until it tests clear of antibiotics.

  • I think everyone always talks about it as a benign thing and they always neglect that it is physically painful and that getting blood everywhere is disgusting and also.....that sometimes, the infections can become severe enough to require medical intervention. Also, no one ever talks about how acne can go all the way down to your butt crack and all the way down your arms.

  • I didn't have acne during my teenage years until I started work. I never knew what is acne until I got it during my adult years. It was worse that time that I've got acne all over my face and the scars. I was able to treat acne and clear all though sometimes it does pop up one or two. I'm getting acne again during my adult years and I couldn't get it cleared like I did it few years back. I have been fighting to clear the acne for long now. It's painful to touch my face. Sometimes it will be cleared and then it starts all over again. I seldom have dairy. I guess stress causes my acne to become worse. Still fighting to clear my breakouts..

  • It's about *systemic and chronic inflammation* If you want clear skin *stop eating wheat, sugar eggs and dairy* it's as simple as that. Your skin is not supposed to break out in cysts *unless your hormones are jacked up* Otherwise *stop eating gluten, sugar, dairy and eggs* People whine "I like all those foods, what will I eat??" Eat to live, don't live to eat.
