Bad acne linked to suicidal thinking in teens

Sep 16, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CNN

Compared to their clear-skinned peers, teens who have bad acne are more than twice as likely to have mental health problems and are at greater risk of having suicidal thoughts, according to a new study of Norwegian youth.

I had acne for years on my shoulders and back, with discoloration on the face... but then I discovered how to get rid of 90% of the acne!!

I started tanning 3 times a week for 10 minutes each time (which is a very natural and safe method).

Now 90% of my acne is gone :)

What I also discovered is that tanning lotion industry is like a 15 billion dollars industry and they want to demonize that the sun is evil, tanning is evil -- but I learned, historically, and as of today, tanning is a very natural thing for your body, and has what your body naturally needs -- vitamin D, calcium, etc.

In moderation its very safe -- if it was unsafe there would be studies showing skin cancer clusters in the central valley (San Joaquin Valley) California, or skin cancer clusters in Arizona in the "Valley of the Sun", which both places see 85% sunshine all year long and have heat waves nearing 115 degrees F, and is home to 10+ million people -- but there are no, and have never been skin cancer clusters there, or anywhere else related to the sun -- including Africa.

But the again, the lotion company wants you to fear something that is, and has always been, very natural for humans and animals.

Enjoy tanning, in moderation, like everything else ;)

Thanks Johnny! That's a very intelligent approach to a very common problem and a real concern to most image conscious teens.

God blessed humans with the healing power of the sun, loaded with Vit D-3 for a reason. Ya know one of the reasons so many people catch colds, flu and other sicknesses is because of lack of sun in the winter time, the so-called "flu-season".

Your a very smart guy for doing the research YOURSELF, instead of listening to the corporate HYPE,(mind control).

God bless you!

I wouldn't recommend it if you live in New Zealand for instance where the O-Zone is diminished and so you're taking in alot more ultraviolet rays.

Tanning doesn't really help your acne go away..it just makes your skin darker, making it less visible

The suicidal tendencies come from acne treatment. Search acutane.

I've tried both original brand and generic accutane. I prefer generic accutane - There is no difference in effectiveness as far as I can tell between the brand and generic versions. The real difference is price, no comparison. And this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://g-isotretinoin.info I've just placed my 3rd order.

I have been on this from http://g-isotretinoin.info for 3 months now and have noticed a massive improvement of my acne. The acne on my back is practically non existent and the amount on my face has dramatically improved. I got lots of comments today saying how face has cleared up since I last saw these people 2 weeks ago. I now have much less acne on my face and it expected to all be gone in 3 more months forever. I am currently on 60mg a day one at morning and 2 at night and I am a 15 year old female. I have had some back pain when I play my weekly sport and dry lips but that is all the side effects I have had.

I started Accutane when I was 17. My skin looked really bad. I had pimples on my face approaching the size of dimes. The acne went over my shoulders, down the front of my chest and down to the bottom of my back. I tried all the creams and fancy products and nothing worked. My doctor finally put me on a round of Accutane from http://g-acne-treatment.info . The first dose I was on for a couple of months didn't do much, so the doctor doubled it. Within six months, my acne was almost all gone and I stopped treatment. Within 18 months I had zero acne and zero scarring - my skin was utterly flawless and still is. I am now basically cured of acne - less than half a dozen pimples in ten years. Miracle.

I fought with acne throughout my teenage years and tried everything to get rid of it (proactiv, neutrogena, retin-a, clean and clear, you name it). I experienced quite an initial breakout soon after I started accutane but was expecting it and told myself my skin would get better. Iím now in the last week of my treatment and my skin is flawless. I havenít had a single zit in 3 months, and scars from my previous breakouts are fading. If your in doubt that accutane can solve your acne frustrations, donít be. Survive the first two months or so of accutane and you will be rewarded with the complexion youíve always wanted.

Before I went on accutane from http://fastacnetreat.info I had tried EVERYTHING... constant Cremes, Benzyol Proxide, 3 different antibiotics, retin A Creme... you name it I used it. None of these things really worked for me; it would only suppress my acne. BTW.. I should inform everyone on here that I never had awful acne, I had moderately severe acne that I was sick of dealing with. I finally decided to go on accutain and I will admit I was really scared. Thr first two months were rough not going to lie; after those two months my face started looking better and better. Now I have NO acne on my face just a couple on my back... it really is AMAZING. Don't let anyone stop you from taking this medication... it works and no one should suffer with acne!!! I have one more month so lets hope I get 100% clear!! I'm at about 88%

I have ordered Accutane prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://fastacnetreat.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I ordered accutane from MOREPILL .COM , it came in less than a week, I just started taking 20 mg, and Im starting to dry out, which was similar to the previous 2 treatments of prescription accutane in the past. The pills, and box look legit, but so far would recommend.

I started on Accutane from MOREPILL .COM on 2nd March and I'm now coming up to finishing my treatment with only 3 weeks left. I genuinely can't express enough how effective Accutane is. My acne was moderate and rather than lesions, etc. I had lots of small spots all over my chin and forehead and beginning to reach out to my cheeks. I went on Duac then oxytetracycline and enthromycin, none of them worked for me! I saw results from Accutane in the first month! My skin did get dry and my lips chapped and flaked badly but if you keep applying E45 and Burts Bees it will keep the flakiness at bay! Honestly I am thankful to Accutane for my new found confidence and I now happily leave the house with no make-up!

Accutane is the best medication on the market in my opinion. Not only am I a pharmacist, but I have taken this medication myself from MOREPILL .COM It WORKS... Before taking Accutane I had the most oily skin. You could literally fry a chicken on my forehead during a hot summer day. By approximately month four my skin had never looked better. Everyone who is struggling with acne should highly consider this medication.

As a 15yr. old girl (this was 16yrs. ago) I started Accutane from http://goo.gl/NeYo6G . After the initial 30 days of my acne getting worse I started to notice that day by day the acne lessened and the pores on my face became smaller and I didn't have to constantly blot the oil off my face. I had some dryness but it was a small sacrifice to look in the mirror and not see these big ugly zits causing me to feel ugly and self conscious. I also started to look people in the eyes and not constantly worry that they were staring at the state of my skin, or to go outside in the bright light and have people thinking negative things about me. After 3 mos. my skin was beautiful, without a single blemish, and the pores shrunk back to normal. Although I had the dryness that everyone experiences, it was SO WORTH IT. People talk about depression as a side effect, but honestly I was so deliriously happy with the results that I can say I was never depressed for even one day. After 1 yr. of being off the drug I started to get a few pimples and went back to the dermatologist. She started me on a second course immediately. That was 17yrs. ago. My skin has been perfect and flawless ever since. I never get a breakout. I shudder to think how my life would have been if it wasn't for this wonder drug. I would recommend it in a heartbeat. It changed my life.
