Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. It affects adults, teenagers and is common in women who are pregnant.
Studies show that stressful events can cause hormonal changes triggering inflammation and acne. Also eating foods that cause blood sugar levels to rise quickly create hormonal changes that increase inflammation and acne. Read this article for more information.
Science Daily reports that a review of studies that were conducted between 1960 and 2012 showed that frequently eating dairy and eating a high glycemic diet, or a diet that causes a quick rise in blood sugar levels, may aggravate acne.
A study published in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine found that increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids and a low glycemic diet reduced acne.
Diet and Supplements
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide advises us to reduce sugar consumption and avoid unhealthy fats and consume at least 20 grams of fiber. FiberWise Drink supplement contains 12 grams of fiber with 40% more psyllium husks than Metamucil Smooth Texture Drink plus digestive soothing herbs, vitamins and antioxidants. FiberWise Bars have 9 grams of fiber.
Vitality 4 Essentials include the Vitality Pack and CellWise, a broad-spectrum antioxidant that helps fight inflammation and Florify, a probiotic. Probiotics protect your immune system and have been shown to fight acne bacteria.
Take Coldwater Omega-3 and ProVex-Plus to reduce inflammation and help protect and heal skin.
Clarity Clear Skin Essentials uses a unique combination of salicylic acid and Melaleuca Oil to quickly cleanse away pore-clogging substances all the while protecting and moisturizing your skin. Salicylic acid helps reduce swelling and redness, unplugs blocked skin pores, and helps stop the acne process. Salicylic acid was found to be more effective for acne treatment than benzoyl peroxide.
In addition you can use T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil on any developing acne lesion. Tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne.
Try to reduce stress, get enough sleep, and eat healthy food and supplements. Try the Clarity Clear Skin Essentials, T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil and use Renew Intensive Therapy to help keep moisture on skin and help resist oil accumulation.

The Clarity Skin Care line is AMAZING! Have I got a testimonial for you! My 17 year old daughter wanted to go to an aesthetician for her problem skin. She was breaking out and getting really frustrated. Well, $200+ later, she started using products that just didn't work. When she went back to the aesthetician for a 2-month follow up, my daughter was told that she should accept her skin and that eventually it may clear up. As my daughter continued to use that product and was getting to the point where she had to buy more, I informed her that given she had a part-time job, she would have to buy the product herself. Then I asked her to take a look at the Melaleuca website. There was a fantastic video on the Clarity Skin Care line. I asked my daughter if she was willing to try it and she said yes. Then I told her the price - $29 for the complete system!!! My gift to her and the best news ever - HER SKIN CLEARED UP WITHIN 2 WEEKS!!! Thank you Melaleuca for providing us with such outstanding products.
This is from a friend of mine: "I used to suffer badly with spots. My face was 70 percent spotty despite frequent cleansing throughout the day. My grandma gave me a blemish control stick to try. I used it according to the instructions, and within a week and a half my spots were nearly all gone! When I try to stop using it they come back, so we keep ordering another one! It really works and we've recommended it to others to try." Becky (13 years). Kind Regards
My husband has Rosacea, a form of adult acne, and it also runs in my family. My husband had a prescription for Metronidazone, but about two years ago he decided to use a bit of T36-C5 twice a day on his nose instead of the prescription cream. His skin is so much more improved that when he sees his dermatologist she doesn't even mention Rosacea, while before when he was on the prescription she always made a note to renew the prescription. So when my nose 'broke out' in the tell-tale acne of Rosacea, I started on the T36-C5 at night and Clarity Clear Skin Essentials at daytime applied on my nose. I always use Sun Shades SPF 30. My skin looks, if I say so myself, great!
