Let’s talk Accutane! Because I’m hearing about an awful lot of people being prescribed this highly toxic drug unnecessarily. Did you know that Accutane has been PROVEN to be highly toxic to several organs in your body AND it inhibits wound repair! Accutane should be avoided at all costs because of its detrimental effects on the liver, lungs, eyes, skin and so much more. It also has mood altering effects like severe depression. With that said, it’s STILL being frequently prescribed!!!
And even worse, this drug isn’t even addressing the root cause of your acne, which are internal toxins! Our skin is a brilliant filter to help remove toxins from our bodies. These toxins are what cause breakouts. Whether from diet, hormones, stress or candida, the toxins that are released due to these causes appear on the face as breakouts.
The most effective long term solution is to target several key skin needs: detoxing and repair, healing and nourishment, and balancing and protection. Rather than addressing skin issues with toxic band aids, I take a corrective approach to your skincare combating and mitigating skin damage from the inside-out.
