Hello, my name is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, board certified dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This clip is about how to get rid of acne without medicine. And many people are surprised when; they may even come to see me in my office and I say I think that I can get rid of your acne without you taking any kind of pills or anything like this. And we know that there are three great ingredients that you can use for acne. The first would be to use salicylic acid. Two percent salicylic acid acts almost like a roto-rooter to clear out your pores of debris, and debris is really what starts all whiteheads, blackheads, and even the inflamed acne lesions. The second thing that I'm going to recommend to you is that you get something with ten percent glycolic acid, like my Clear Slate, where you'd be putting that on. In the very beginning you're going to put it on, and then wash it off after ten to twenty minutes because you're really going to be getting a microscopic peel. If that alone doesn't work and it really should; doing the salicylic cleanser, the toner, and the Clear Slate. If for any reason that alone doesn't work then you can add on Retinol. Our Retinol drops are seventy times stronger than what you get over the counter. And my true belief is that you can clear your acne without any medication in the vast, vast majority of cases. Best of luck to ya. This is Dr. Loretta.
