My 16 year old daughter has been suffering with fairly bad acne for a while now, and nothing seems to help.

Q. Dear Terry, “My 16 year old daughter has been suffering with fairly bad acne for a while now, and nothing seems to help. What ingredients would be appropriate for a 16 year old to take? Thank you so much!”– Sharon S., Buffalo, NY

A. Dear Sharon, There are many factors that play a role in the development of acne like toxins, stress, and poor diet. Even though we often think of treating skin issues externally, healthy skin is actually more about what’s going on inside of the body than outside it.

When it comes to preventing or treating acne, I believe a nutritional approach including vitamins, minerals, and herbs can provide some excellent results. I recommend a combination of vitamins (A, B6, pantothenic acid, and C) and minerals (chromium, potassium, and zinc), along with sulfur, burdock, and boswellia. These ingredients are crucial for balancing oil production, restoring healthy bacterial balance, and improving overall skin integrity. I would take these ingredients twice daily.

Because skin issues can take time to heal, I suggest having your daughter try these ingredients for at least 60 days. Some people may respond right away, in as little as 1 to 2 weeks, while others may need more time to help correct the issues that led to the acne.

Healthy Regards!
