I’m 50 yrs old and I have a hypothyroid that has caused my skin to break out, feel dry and have an extremely dull appearance. I’ve tried everything under the sun for over a year hoping to find a fix. I have been getting some relief with some natural products. The one that worked the best was the Citrus Clear Grapefruit Spot Treatment – I tried it for one week, and my acne is almost gone. I have a glow again and my face looks fresh! If you have hypothyroid like me with acne, definitely look at the Citrus Clear products – all natural, and they work for acne.
It is widely suspected that the anaerobic bacterial species Propionibacterium acnes ( P. acnes ) contributes to the development of acne, but its exact role is not well understood.  There are specific sub-strains of P. acnes associated with normal skin, and moderate or severe inflammatory acne.  It is unclear whether these undesirable strains evolve on-site or are acquired, or possibly both depending on the person. These strains have the capability of changing, perpetuating, or adapting to the abnormal cycle of inflammation, oil production, and inadequate sloughing of dead skin cells from acne pores. Infection with the parasitic mite Demodex is associated with the development of acne.   It is unclear whether eradication of the mite improves acne.
