Can this treatment really cure your acne?

I suffered from severe acne in my teens and have suffered on and off from mild acne for the rest of my adult life. In some ways it can be more embarrassing as an adult as everyone assumes that it’s a teenage affliction and that you grow out of it, but not always so. I’ve visited the doctor many times and received several different treatments – none of which have worked for any length of time. Thankfully I have managed to find ways of coping with my acne and hiding it to some extent and I have found that using natural skincare products improves my skin slightly.
I was asked a few weeks ago if I would be interested in trying out this Acne Gel from Gladskin, the Acne Gel contains the active ingredient Staphefekt which kills only the bad bacteria that often cause infections during acne. Killing this bacteria can prevent and reduce symptoms such as redness and pimples.
The Gladskin website reports that 84% of people who have tried Acne Gel report an improvement in their skin.
Gladskin Acne Gel is a clear, fairly runny, gel that can be used on any part of the body – although I only suffer from problems on my face many people experience acne on their back or other areas of the body.
Gladskin recommend that the gel is applied 2-3 times daily over the course of at least 4-6 weeks to see the best results. I’ve been using it morning and night for just over 6 weeks now and I have to say that I have seen some good results….
Firstly I have to caveat that over the past three months, and prior to trying out the Acne Gel, my skin hadn’t been too bad with only the occasional bad spot appearing along my jawbone or on my chin. However I get these good periods occasionally and just when I start to relax the blemishes come back with a vengeance!
I started off by applying Acne Gel to the left hand side of my face only, so that I could compare the two sides, and after only a couple of weeks I found that the left hand side of my face did appear much clearer than the right. After a couple of large, painful blemishes then appeared on the right hand side of my face I started using the Acne Gel on both sides, and these dried up quite quickly.
I’ve definitely had less spots over the past 6 weeks whilst using Gladskin Acne Gel, and those that have developed have disappeared more quickly than they might have done previously. I’ll definitely continue to use this product, and I love the fact that it doesn’t sting or feel harsh on the skin like a lot of products that I’ve tried in the past. The instructions do say that it might leave a white residue on the skin once the gel has dried, but I haven’t found this at all.
I also like the fact that the packaging doesn’t make this look like a medicated skincare product, the peach colour is easy on the eye and makes it look like any other regular skincare product that you might display on your bathroom shelf.
Don’t forget though that this isn’t a miracle cure for acne, it treats the symptoms and not the cause, and if you suffer from severe acne then it is worth consulting a healthcare professional. Despite my lack of success with doctors there are also other people out there that you can talk to – homeopathists, aromatherapists, etc – who will look at treating the underlying cause of the acne (e.g. hormone imbalance) rather than the problem itself.
Gladskin also offers a gentle Face and Wash and a Daily Care moisturiser that can be used alongside Acne Gel.
