Everyone gets a blemish now and then. But for some, acne is a way of life. Acne sufferers spend millions of dollars in their desperate hunt for a solution. Often they turn to incomplete over-the-counter remedies or even prescription drugs with dangerous side effects.

The Acne Cure is the only book ever to offer a comprehensive, safe, rapid, and almost universally successful method of eliminating acne without prescription drugs, without side effects, without shifts in lifestyle or eating habits, and at little cost.
Whether you're a teenage girl embarrassed to date because of her complexion, or a woman who feels her face is disfigured by acne; whether you're a boy with pimples, or a mature man for whom shaving is torture because of the bumps and lesions of the disease; whether you're White, Black, Hispanic, or Asian, this program is for you.

1) Wash with Neutrogena oil free acne wash (has 2% salicylic acid with a pH of 3.8-4.2) for 2-3 minutes, rinse off and pat dry.
2) Apply Alpha Hydrox 10% glycolic acid oil free formula (has a pH of 4)and leave on. I DO NOT rinse it off like it says to in the book.
3) Wait 4 minutes and I then apply Neutrogena oil free lotion spf 15 with DermaNaturals from the Neutrogena acne kit.
4) I then apply OC Eight to my (not nearly as oily as it used to be) t-zone.
1) Quickly and gently I wash with the skin polishing cleanser from the Neutrogena acne kit to wash off the sunscreen and OC Eight I put on in the morning.
2) Wash with neutrogena oil free acne wash for 2-3 minutes like I do in the morning, rinse and pat dry.
3) Wait 5 minutes and then I apply the acne control lotion (has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide) from the Neutrogena acne kit. I DO NOT ice my face first like it says to in the book.
The reason why I use Neutrogena oil free acne wash and Alpha Hydrox 10% glycolic acid is because I read somewhere that to get proper exfoliation the product needs to have a pH of 3 to 4.5 and those two products are in the right pH range. I have to say that I have never had skin this clear since I was probably about 12 years old! As an adult I have always battled insanely oily skin, facial redness, cystic chin acne and blackheads that I could never completely get rid of. Not only have these products and this skin care routine cleared all of my acne, but my skin is very even toned, younger looking and a lot less oily!
I am in the medical field, and what is presented in the book makes sense, however the actual program he outlines is not supported by scientific data. He explains the purpose of each product used, and backs its effectiveness up by mentioning scientific studies. The flaw is he supports each individual treatment with current data, but has no data supporting his combination of treatment. Therefore, one can only be skeptical of the programs true effectiveness. I admit, after reading the book I was convinced it would work, however, 6 weeks later I have shown little improvement.
I have suffered from adult acne for about 6 years, with the onset at about age 25. I never had teenage acne. My dermatologist says that I have mild acne, but lets face it, if you have acne it is anything but mild! I, like many others, have tried everything without success. I am certain that my acne is hormone related. If acne is hormone related, which in my opinion almost always is, topical medication will not change the levels of hormones your body produces. Therefore, topical medication may make acne better, but will never serve as a cure. My opinion, if you can afford it, see an endocrinologist that treats acne.
The book is a good read for understanding acne and how over the counter acne products work. Good skincare advice, but not a "cure" for acne.
