Acne Treatments - Nature's Cure
What is Nature's Cure and does it work |
Nature's Cure is a 2-part system that homeopathically treats acne. (There is a version for men and another version for women, so if you choose to purchase this, make sure you buy the one formulated for your gender.) In the 2-part internal/external system, there is a month's supply of homeopathic pills, as well as a topical 5% benzoyl peroxide cream, all for around $10.
How to Use Nature's Cure for Acne
The pills are made up of herbal mixes that supposedly "stimulate your body's natural defenses" and treat acne from the inside out. In conjunction with the topical BP cream (that fights existing acne), Nature's Cure "cures" your acne both internally and externally.
To use this system, you take one pill in the morning (chewing thoroughly) and one at night. The pills don't taste like anything but are a bit chalky. You then apply the benzoyl peroxide cream as needed to treat any current acne. The benzoyl peroxide cream from Nature's Cure is runnier and slightly more powdery than other benzoyl peroxide creams. After two to four week of this treatment, your skin is supposed to start to clear up.
Does Nature's Cure work?
From personal experience, it didn't make a dent in my acne. It didn't make it worse, but didn't make it better either. Also, there aren't supposed to be any side effects because Nature's Cure is homeopathic, but some people have reported feeling drowsy and others even experienced a worsening of their acne symptoms after taking the tablets. I looked up lots of online reviews for Nature's Cure and it seems like it works for some people, breaks out others, or simply does nothing.
