How Long Does It Take to Cure Acne

Do you wonder how long it will take to clear your acne? How much time will it take to finally stop breakouts and get the clear skin you've always wanted?

There are a few questions, I think, that comes across every acne sufferer's mind when they find a new acne treatment plan:

1.) Does this actually work?

2.) How much is it going to cost me?

3.) How long will it take to clear my acne?

4.) Wait... really, does this actually work?

5.) And who's that guy in95 those "How To Clear Your Acne" youtube videos?


The first couple questions are definitely legitimate questions. Why would you want to buy something that doesn't work? And by this point, I think a lot of acne sufferers are a little bit more skeptical about trusting acne products than ever before.


And of course, everyone wants to know how much it's going to cost.  Because sometimes, as much as we want something, if it's going to cost an arm and a leg, it's probably not going to happen.  Of course, it's necessary to balance the cost and benefits when thinking about any purchase, but if you're the type of person who  may think that it's WORTH an arm and a leg, it's probably not what you think.  It's also probably not a good idea to give up an arm and a leg for for clear skin.


The first question is an obvious one, the second question is something most of us probably think of after the fact that we've pretty much already decided on purchasing, but it's this third question that brings into the mix: practicality.


Because I could have the perfect solution, but it's going to take you 10 years to clear your acne.  It's probably not the deal that you were looking for then.  And I think that's what a lot of you are probably thinking something like this and probably along this order of thoughts:

1.) Wow, I can't believe I found this site. =)

2.) What he's saying all makes sense,

3.) There must be some sort of catch...

4.) This is too good to be true.

5.) Hmm... I wonder how long it takes?

6.) Yeah... it probably takes forever.

7.) I better find out. Okay... so And the truth of the matter is that some of you have probably tried an acne treatment product or two... or three... or 10.  And in you're experience, there ultimately has been some sort of catch in every scenario.  Either it would give you nicer skin, but you broke out on your left butt cheek or something, or you may be acne free, but your lips and eyes were incredibly dry.  Or maybe it solved your acne problems, but now you have the added bonus of depression, extra bone growth, and some blindness... *COUGH*



I'm sorry, excuse me.

Normally, I don't cough while writing my articles and normally, physical things I do in the real world don't somehow get manifested onto paper like coughing, sneezing, or if I got up to use the restroom right now [walks downstairs and grabs a quick snack] but I don't know how that mentioning of [intlink id="80" type="post"]HOW BAD ACCUTANE CAN BE FOR YOU AND YOUR LIFE[/intlink]got snuck up in there.

Anyway... Most of you believe there's always a catch, and that's probably why some of you have even emailed me asking if this really works or how long it might take.

Could it be possible that some of you might actually be looking for or expecting this acne regimen to fail?

Well you're out of luck, because that secret undisclosed clause where you sign on the dotted line for clear skin and somehow unknowingly sell your soul over to the devil is NOT here.  In other words, you can't stop worrying.

OKAY, GET TO THE POINT.  SO HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? You can clear your fast as fast as 3 weeks to as long as 3 months or even longer. That's' right, following this regimen, you can actually get clear skin in as little as 3 weeks.  But it could also take a longer depending on severity of the situation, your body type, and how well you follow the directions.


This one's important.  This is the reason why I don't like telling people how long it will take to clear "their" acne.  Because in most cases, they either haven't given me enough details to allow me to understand their body types, their acne severity and situation, or I don't know how well they can follow directions and be proactive in helping themselves, or [insert whatever excuse, mistake, or anything else that I might not be able to predict in the future HERE].

When I say "depends" and it could also take "longer," what I mean by that is that how long it takes for you to clear your acne depends on these factors:

1.) How bad is your acne?

2.) How "unhealthy" is your body?

3.) Do you understand how to treat your body?

4.) Do you completely understand the steps of the regimen?

5.) How well do you follow through?  How's your willpower?

6.) Are you proactive?  Do you ask questions?  Do you seek to understand and learn?

Everyone's body is different.

Everyone's personality and knowledge of this subject of acne is different too.  In most cases, I don't know how much you know, I don't know how you treat your body on a day to day basis, I don't know how strong your willpower is.

So how do I know if you're doing all the steps right?

How do I know how bad your acne is if I've never seen a picture of your face?

How do I know whether or not YOU KNOW what you're doing? I usually don't.

And that's why I say it depends because the estimation of how long it will take to clear your acne depends on more than one thing: YOU.  It depends on you, and YOU are made up of more than just a face.  We are all made up of personalities, intellect, willpower, curiosity, and emotional intellect. So then a lot of people seem to ask me, "Well... can you give me a rough estimate?"

Let me ask you this, "Can you tell me how long it will take to fix a car?" (LoL, for those of you who have read my previous articles, I have no idea why I always choose cars as my examples)

And you would probably say, "Well... it depends." Then I would reply, "Can you give me a rough estimate?" Get where I'm going with this? The answer is that it depends on what kind of repair do you need, how good the mechanic is, what kind of condition the car is at, blah blah blah.  Make sense?  If you have a beginner mechanic and a difficult problem, it make take a long time to clear the acne on that car.  However, if you have a great mechanic and a simple problem, the acne on the car might not be too bad and it might be very quick to clear up. Then again, even if you had an easy problem but the mechanic didn't know what he was doing, chances are it could still end up taking forever just for him to figure out how to fix it.

Because the guy won't know what he's doing! Either way, you've got to take your car to the mechanic.  So do you want to do it the right way and take your car to an ALL NATURAL MECHANIC or do you want to throw on ProActiv for $19.95 a month (or however much it costs now) and see how it doesn't work for you?

There, if YOU ARE the mechanic and you're not sure what you're doing, it might take longer for you to clear your acne than say... if someone who DID KNOW what they were doing were standing by your side and guiding you.  If that's the case and you don't want to take the time to experiment with your acne because you've tried that and you'd rather follow the advice of someone who's "been there, done that," you may want to think about hiring someone or having someone who knows what they're doing guide you.  If you're looking for that kind of help, [intlink id="5" type="page"]CLICK HERE[/intlink]. HOW LONG DID IT TAKE FOR YOU, RAY? 3-6 months.

Actually, it took around 3-4 months but the reason why I'm saying 3-6 months is because honestly, at the time, I really didn't know what I was doing.  I was on my own.  And I'm a pretty careful and detailed person when it comes to my face.  But still, I had no idea what I was doing and there were definitely times when things didn't go "according to plan."

If I DID KNOW what I was doing, it probably could've been as fast as 1-2 months for me to completely transform my body and my face.  That is, if I knew then what I know now, things would have definitely been different.  And believe me, there were definitely times when I wished I had some help or someone to tell me what was going on! There were times when I was standing there, in the kitchen, with 2-3 books on the counter and a bunch of vitamins, supplements, and solutions of "Don't Try This at Home, Kids" and you can bet I wished I knew what I know now.

It wasn't easy to get to the point of where I'm at now.  It took hundreds of hours of research, lots of trial and error, many books, and many, many other things that probably shouldn't even be mentioned on the internet. I wish it could've been as easy washing my face with a magical solution or being born with perfect skin so I never even had to deal with it.  Unfortunately, this was the hand of cards I was dealt and that was how I dealt with it. Trust me when I tell you there were also times when I standing in the bathroom and well... yeah, it's not pretty.

Let's just say, at that point in my life, I didn't care what, I was going to do whatever it took to clear my acne no matter how embarrassing, painful, difficult, I was going to do it.  And in my opinion, I earned it. And that's why I'm also saying that if you get a chance to skip all the hardships that I had to endure, TAKE IT.

Seriously, it's worth it.  I have no idea how many $19.95's I spent every month on an acne treatment program that didn't work for, how many trips to the dermatologists where I paid $100 here and there because my insurance didn't cover it, or how many $1,000's I've spent on more serious laser treatments.

That being said, if you get your body on track and clear your acne from the inside out, you can be sure to see results within less than a week!

THE ACNE FREE DIET is designed to clear your acne quickly and naturally for long lasting and PERMANENT results so that you can look that girl in the eye and know that she finds you attractive and that she thinks you're good looking TOO.  The best part is, I don't focus on the external, short term solutions like pills or the next face wash like ProActiv.  My program is about clearing your acne naturally from the inside through the Acne Free Diet.

Best of all, it's FREE for you to learn about.


The solution to curing your acne is to not focus on improving your health in the commonly accepted way.   Now, what I'm NOT saying is to not work out, not eat healthy, and not wash your skin.  That is NOT what I'm saying.  However, what I am saying is that what we believe now to be "taking care" of our bodies needs to be tweaked a little bit, especially if you have acne.  And that "tweak" that you're looking for is exactly what How To Clear Your Acne is about.

What every acne sufferer must learn, especially the ones that are really fit and health conscious yet still can't figure out why they still have acne, is that there is a DIFFERENT KIND OF TAKING CARE OF YOUR BODY ROUTINE for us.  Our bodies are different than the "average" person who eats whatever they want and just gains weight.  Sometimes our bodies, which you've probably already noticed, doesn't even gain weight.  Sometimes, when we neglect our bodies, we just end up breaking out instead.  And it sucks.

It doesn't make any sense that we're working out, getting a good sweat, going to a sauna, washing our face, and then doing a facial mask yet we STILL breakout.  WHY?!

So whatever you do, don't just keep working out and trying to eat "healthy" thinking that something's going to change and that your acne is suddenly going to start clearing up if you just try harder.

I know this doesn't work.  Because that's what I used to do.  I would just redouble my efforts thinking that I wasn't trying hard enough.  But that's not the answer and it's not going to cure your acne.

You need to stop and think.  Reformulate a new plan.  Really try and understand what's going on.  Figure out the WHY.

It's questions just like these that I racked my brain for years!   I've been in your shoes before and it's hard to really know what works and what doesn't.  It just seems like there are so many acne products out there, it's hard to really find out with ones are telling the truth and which ones are lying. I've bought a lot of them too, Clearasil, Murad, ProActiv, those are just to name a few that I've tried.  I used to have use a lot of acne products such as aloe vera, benzoyl peroxide, face creams, masks, etc... But these days, I barely even wash my face once a day sometimes, and I'm still clear. I'm proof that clearing your acne the healthy and natural way works. And it's permanent too, I still have clear skin and I have no problems maintaining acne free, clear skin.

And I finally figured out the perfect routine and way to care for our bodies and our skin if you have acne.  The true causes of acne are really dirty blood and an overwhelmed system. And I talk a lot about these two causes in my website and more in detail about how to deal with them in my products.

For anybody reading this article, if you're serious about clearing your acne for good, the logical next step for you would be to learn about your body. It doesn't matter if you choose me or someone else, I would highly recommend you to start learning about how to clear your acne from the inside instead of concentrating on the outside. Make sure you know that outside acne treatments are only short term, and that you really want to focus on clearing acne from the inside out.

I don't hold back in this program, I'm telling you all of my experience, my stories, what I went through, what I learned, how I cleared my acne, and I'm teaching you exactly as if I were standing right next to you coaching you through the way. I WISH that I had something like this when I had acne. It would've saved me so much TIME, MONEY, and ENERGY.

I, and thousands of other people, have spent years of our lives suffering from acne.  And I mean REALLY SUFFERING from having acne.  And it's just a handful of us that finally found the secret to be able to free ourselves from those dark days when we hated the reflections of ourselves in the mirror.

There are those people out there that look at their old pictures and remember the days when they USED TO HAVE acne.

Some of them now have moved on with their lives and forgotten about the nights that they were ashamed of meeting new people because of their acne.

The question I have for you is...


Or are you going to just be another one of the dozens and hundreds and thousands of guys that just stand and wait… or hopes that whatever you're doing now will somehow magically start working?

If you want to know all the steps, top to bottom and front to back for how to clear your acne once in for all, then I have a hint for you …
