Our Approach to Acne



Did you know that more than 40 million people suffer from acne, and many of those people have severe acne that can cause significant emotional distress? 

If you are suffering from acne, You are not alone! 

Have you tried many things, but nothing sticks, or you try one thing and it works for some time and it keeps coming back? 

It’s because you’re not addressing all the underlying contributing factors. 

Acne can have many contributing factors these can include: 

  • Hormone imbalances

  • Thyroid dysfunction

  • Skin type

  • Nutrition status

  • Organ function

  • Digestive issues

  • Liver dysfunction

  • Cortisol and stress response

  • Blood sugar irregularities 

  • Dysbiosis 

  • Microbiome health 

  • Circulation

When to see us: 

  • Your acne makes you shy or embarrassed.

  • The products and treatments you've tried have not worked.

  • Your acne is leaving scars or darkening your skin.

We have had our own skin issues and  have spent many years on research and trying different approaches to heal our own skin. So we know your struggle! 

We found a natural approach that has worked for us and our patients. It utilizes specialized lab testing to help us uncover and address all the underlying contributing factors to your skin health. 


1. Wash twice a day and after sweating. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.

2. Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything else can irritate the skin.

3. Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse.

4. Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse. Avoid the temptation to scrub your skin.

5. Rinse with lukewarm water

6. Shampoo regularly. If you have oily hair, shampoo daily.

7. Let your skin heal naturally. If you pick, pop or squeeze your acne, your skin will take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars.

8. Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups.
