Great post about Aaron's Acne says it all

I was surfing the Internet recently when I stumbled on a blog post about The post mentioned that the before and after photos looked like they were of the same person (some diet before/after photos can be questionable) and that even though it took Aaron nearly 8 months to clear up his acne, that is was apparent that his acne sure worked.

Aaron set up his own acne cure after struggling with many over the counter acne products and visiting a dermatologist that wanted to put him on accutane. (Accutane is an acne drug that cost tons of money and has many dangerous side effects0

Aaron methodically created his acne cure by changing up his diet completely and adding a few cleansing fasts to rid his body of excess bacteria.

Don't take our word for it though. Go check out Aaron's Acne Cure and see for yourself how the cure works. By the way it didn't cost much more than $50 for the total cure. He also was able to get rid of some of the acne scarring that resulted from his cystic acne.

You can just throw away all those over the counter acne products you are using since they only treat the symptoms of acne and not the cause.
