First, please don't let them put her on Accutane. This is so very toxic to the liver and all it does is completely dry out the skin.

Second, I had terrible acne from 12 to 43, having tried everything, until I started using Sensaria Natural Bodycare. I am now 51 1/2 with skin that looks better than when I was 35. Sensaria also has a one-year guarantee that you are not going to get with any product from the dermatologist either.:o)

Some things to keep in mind:
1. do not use anything with petroleum, mineral oil and make sure it does not contain products that block the pores.
2. use a good toner without any alcohol in it
3. use a moisturizer!
4. exfoliate often

I use to think that drying it out was going to make it better when in reality it is just telling your oil glands to make more oil. Exfoliate often is important to keep the pores clean but do not rub/scrub the area(s) that have break out as you are spreading germs.

I am offering to come to you to have you try the Sensaria line for acne and oily skin or you may come to me. I have been a representative with Sensaria for just over eight years now and have had great results for my family and for MANY others. You can look in the Local Businesses here or just go straight to my website

The products that I would have you look at are the Clarifying System, the Mens Line (don't be misled, it is great for acne because of the healing and antibacterial ingredients), the Clay Mask, Blemish Control, Enzyme Exfoliator, and the Sunscreen. LOL I am not saying you need to get all of these, just that they are products that work well for oily skin and acne and they won't harm the inside of your body nor your skin.
