Living with acne: Natural alternatives to prescription medication

Prescription medication

If you visit a GP about your acne you’re likely to be given prescription medication, whether that’s a contraceptive pill like Dianette and Microgynon or a course of antibiotics. At Works With Water we think it’s important to explore the alternatives to prescription medication for acne so you feel empowered and knowledgeable enough to find different solutions for your skin problems.

Many people suffer from chronic acne, which can have a huge impact on the way they feel about their appearance and even how they manage their day-to-day lives. When people get to this stage and feel like they’ve exhausted everything local pharmacies and shops have to offer, they turn to their GP where they’re often prescribed contraceptive pills to address the hormonal effects of acne or given antibiotics in an attempt to rid skin cells of bacteria.

Although many people turn to these options, they’re not ideal because they’re treating only one or two of the things that may cause acne, i.e. addressing a hormone imbalance or fighting off bacteria. Many prescription medications have side effects, like skin burning, gastric issues and even mood swings, which is why we suggest these are a last resort to an acne solution.

Some people turn to topical creams because they aren’t as invasive and the side effects are likely to be much milder. The problem here is that many acne sufferers who turn to topical creams find them to be irritating – they contain certain acids to fight off acne and the bacteria already on the skin – or are completely ineffective and only suitable for zapping a pimple or two here and there.

So what’s the best alternative to prescription medication for acne sufferers? 

Here at Works With Water we occupy the middle ground as our help: clear skin and help: clear skin MEN natural skin supplements are suitable for sufferers of all types of acne – from mild to severe; and as the ingredients in our PravENAC™ formulation are completely natural, you can be confident there are no side effects.

It’s easy to incorporate this natural course of acne treatment into your daily skincare routine by simply adding the daily powder dosage to your favourite beverage or soft food.  Within as little as 4 – 6 weeks you should begin to see improvements in your skin as the combination of lactoferrin, aloe vera and zinc gluconate begins to reduce the production of bacteria. Acne spots are fewer in frequency and become less painful whilst blackheads and whiteheads become less evident.
