Clear5: Changing how your body regulates skin oil

Does your acne treatment target oil regulation?


If not, you're probably wasting your time and money.


I was halfway through college when I finally stumbled onto the natural acne treatment that got me clear. My skin was pretty bad. It was normal for me to have 2-3 big, red cysts on my face at once, along with a constellation of smaller spots and also back acne.  


I was using benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid...all the most popular active ingredients. But nothing was working.


In desperation, I turned to acne message boards in search of something really different. I found vitamin B5.


A week into the treatment, I knew I had found the answer. I woke up in the morning and my skin genuinely looked and felt different. My pores had visibly tightened and my skin tone had improved. The transformation wasn't subtle. It was dramatic. I still had a few spots at that time, but the redness was fading fast.


Within a month, my acne just stopped.


It sounds cliché to say vitamin B5 "worked like a miracle", but for someone who had suffered with severe acne for a decade, that was how it felt. I had found my solution.


What was the difference? Oil regulation.


Up until then, most of the treatments I had been using targeted surface dirt or bacteria clogging my pores (via benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid). They targeted toxins in my skin cells (via antioxidants). Some of them stripped away oil from the surface of my skin. But none of them changed why I had oily skin in the first place. None of them effected my body's metabolism of skin oil.


No topical cream is going to change your metabolism. To accomplish that, you need an internal treatment.


When your body pumps out too much oil too fast, that oil pressurizes and hardens under your skin. That's what those nasty white clumps of pus you see in pimples are: compressed skin oil. Put simply, vitamin B5 acne treatment works by providing your body with the natural fuel it needs to metabolize that skin oil before it gets a chance to build up.


Using Clear5 makes B5 treatment easy


A good acne treatment shouldn't just work. It should be practical. Back when I got started, typical B5 regimens involved taking upwards of 10-20 pills per day. Clear5 is great because its time-release formula means that you can get clear skin with a much smaller dose, and the formula also includes key ingredients that make Clear5 both a safer and more effective supplement, such as biotin and zinc.


At last, I no longer needed to obsess over washing my face with an entire system of creams and cleansers every day. In fact, even if all I bothered with was a daily rinse, my skin stayed clear!


And it wasn't just my face. One of the downsides of topical treatments is that they only treat the area where they are applied, but an internal treatment can effect your whole body at once - that means clearing up acne on your face, back and body in one step!


But wouldn't getting vitamin B5 directly from your diet be better?


In the case of most supplements, that's exactly what I would recommend. Vitamin B5 is present in a ton of foods, including eggs, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, yogurt, corn, tomatoes, liver, grapefruit...the list goes on. But there's a problem...


While getting a sufficient level of vitamin B5 from your diet isn't hard, if you have acne, getting just a "sufficient" level of B5 isn't enough. You need to be taking a treatment-level dose.


For that you need a supplement. This is not just a vitamin deficiency. It's a simple principle: if your body is producing above-average levels of skin oil, you need to counter it with an above-average intake of vitamin B5.


Thankfully, vitamin B5 is one of the safest vitamins out there. It's water-soluble with very mild side effects (stomach irritation and stool softening) that are temporary and fairly rare. I've used it for years now without any downsides (all I need is a small maintenance dose these days). Of course, you should always listen to your body and reduce dosage or quit if you happen to have any allergic reactions.


So you should definitely give this a shot


If you have acne, I highly recommend giving a vitamin B5 treatment such as Clear5 a try. It worked amazingly well for me, and since acne is caused by excess skin oil in the vast majority of cases, the chances are high that it will work for you as well.
