    I find trying to heal my gut the hardest thing. I have been trying to deal with the psychological and spiritual causes behind my cravings for refined sugars and dairy for a long time. I can feel that I am doing better bit by bit so am trying to be kind to myself on the journey.
    Thank you for this opportunity and to Fran for her continued efforts to heal herself and many others in the process.

    Hormonal acne I break out during my period despite eating as clean as I possibly can.

  • Josie October 9, 2016, 4:01 am

    What I find hardest about dealing with clearing my skin is the constant shame and embarrassment I face whilst trying to be patient in finding something that will give me good results in successfully clearing my acne.

  • Rachel October 8, 2016, 2:05 am

    I would love to know more about what to use on my skin as I enter my 40’s this year. I’m noticing the elasticity lessening and wrinkles starting to appear. 🙂

  • Alice October 8, 2016, 2:00 am

    The hardest part about dealing with clearing my skin is the constant self doubt and lack of self confidence! I feel like I can’t be happy or be myself until my skin is clear and my life is passing me by all because I don’t have the skin I want

  • N m October 7, 2016, 8:19 pm

    Washing my face… haven’t found an inexpensive or home made recipe wash that works.

  • Martina October 7, 2016, 8:06 pm

    The constant obsession with my skin, that’s been the hardest part for me. Comparing myself to others and desperately wanting clear, soft, beautiful skin, like it’s a symbol of status or ultimate beauty. And letting my skin troubles overwhelm my mind and influence my motivations and self esteem. All this time I’ve spent worrying could have been spent on something far more productive. Positive affirmations help, and realizing that positive thoughts bring positive results, and unfortunately, vise versa.

  • Verena October 7, 2016, 7:49 pm

    It’s hard to stay optimistic and confident. And it can be so frustrating when you try everything and you still struggle.

  • Amber October 7, 2016, 4:45 pm

    My biggest struggle is consistency with elimination of certain foods/drinks that cause my acne.

  • Jake C October 7, 2016, 4:35 pm

    I personally feel that one of the hardest things that I deal with when waiting for a acne break out to clear up, is learning how to NOT touch or pick at my face! I know how horrible picking at acne is and it just makes matters much worse but it almost becomes a subconscious habit and obviously I know better but it’s hard sometimes when you find yourself picking at something and not even realize I’m doing it! Mind over matter!

  • Dani October 7, 2016, 4:32 pm

    The hardest thing I find is constantly having to tweak something as it seems like it’s a never ending battle (that has taught me much about my self and life, which I am forever grateful for). I’ve also dealt with people saying it’s a vanity issue – which it really isn’t because I know it’s my body’s way of telling me something inside is off balance. It’s also difficult to find products that are affordable so the costs do add up quickly.

  • Sarah Rose October 7, 2016, 4:04 pm

    The struggle is real! And it has been for 20 years+.

    The hardest thing about dealing with the process of clearing my skin is the anxiety, i.e. “When will this product start working? When will the bumps decrease? Will these scars ever go away? I’ve eliminated processed foods, I’m drinking more water, I’m managing my diet and exercise, what will it take? Do I really have to attain celebrity status or strike it rich to have clear skin?”

  • SHONA O'CONNOR October 7, 2016, 3:36 pm


  • fatima October 7, 2016, 12:48 pm

    What i think is the hardest is to clear my scars, my bumps go away, but the scars are quite tricky to heal naturally.

  • Margie October 7, 2016, 10:28 am

    The hardest about dealing with clearing my skin is not knowing all of the variables that affect my skin (diet, hormones, stress, skin type, skin products….etc etc etc!) – and then how to find out what the right level of each one is for me. It’s like searching for a beautiful, shiny needle in a haystack!

  • Karen J. October 7, 2016, 9:53 am

    It’s frustrating when a regime appears to be working, and then suddenly it doesn’t.

  • Maria Martinsson October 7, 2016, 5:32 am

    Hello! The hardest part is the effect it has on my self esteem and how I feel about myself. Nearing 40, seeing the spots in my face makes me feel like a teenager and like I’ve always got dirty skin (I know it isn’t true).

  • ashley October 7, 2016, 3:54 am

    The hardest part for me is that I can’t hide my struggles when it’s literally “written all over my face” I am a pretty healthy person and work in a healing field, so after trying the supplements, changing my diet, skin care, trying yoga, meditation, etc. etc. etc. when I still have to show up for my clients when I am so clearly struggling with my own issues it feels embarassing. Definitely the psychological effects, as well as the feeling of hopelessness.

  • Karina October 7, 2016, 2:18 am

    Patience. Patience to figure out my personal triggers. Patience to learn to let go. Patience to learn to deal with emotions and thoughts in a more “self loving” way. Patience to let go and not pop immediately. Patience to see if the new thing I’m trying is working out or not. Patience.

  • Jen R. October 7, 2016, 2:17 am

    Constantly battling what seems like lifelong acne, grrr.

  • Shauna October 7, 2016, 2:07 am

    Hormonal acne is what I seem to struggle the most with.

  • Nicole B. October 7, 2016, 1:39 am

    Staying positive and willing to continue trying after over a decade dealing with this issue.

  • Cynthia October 7, 2016, 12:48 am

    The hardest thing about clearing your skin is the endless maze of information, some true and some false! The cost isn’t the best either, therfore I am hoping to win a great new regime as you lave listed above…..

  • Mona p Pittman October 7, 2016, 12:41 am

    Combo skin…psoriasis..blackheads no matter what I’ve tried so far….

  • Patti October 6, 2016, 11:55 pm

    The hardest part of dealing with acne is not feeling confident in my appearance, feeling ashamed and trapped by my skin.

  • Jessica October 6, 2016, 11:51 pm

    The major hit to my self esteem is definitely the most difficult aspect of having acne. After suffering with acne for 20 years I’ve finally learned to stop caring about what others view how I look. I no longer feel the need to slather on foundation every time I leave my house but it’s still a very difficult to break the habit.

  • Elise Giles October 6, 2016, 11:43 pm

    First off, I am so grateful to Fran and highonclearskin blog for the countless help and direction she has given in my journey towards natural and holistic skincare. The hardest part about dealing with my acne is the realization that no two individual’s acne is the same and the work is in figuring out exactly what is aggravating and inflaming your individual body. Despite following recommendations, it is not always a cookie cutter solution for everyone and that can be very discouraging when an answer that worked for someone else does not work for you. So this struggle of trial and error has the potential to feel more like defeat than victory on most days. Also having to visibly wear on the outside of your body your struggle is very disheartening. Since acne is an inflammation with the body, it’s embarrassing that everywhere I go, my acne face is letting the world know that “I’m out of balance!” As a woman approaching my 30s, I feel as though I should have figured out by now what is good for my body and how to properly take care of it. Having to physically carry around your struggle and that the world can see it is very hard.

  • Miranda October 6, 2016, 11:39 pm

    Avoiding sugar.

  • Ashley Lombardo October 6, 2016, 10:57 pm

    I find it difficult to figure out what internal factors are causing my acne, how to balance diet and vitamins with skin clearing products has been a real challenge.

  • Martina October 6, 2016, 10:45 pm

    I have acne since 12 years old. I was really depressed for all those years. I was bullied. I had so many days when I just wanted to stay at home because I didn’t feel like meeting people at all. I didn’t wan’t to meet my family also. It was just bad. I’m still sad when I look back and realise that those days I was supposed to be happy and I should enjoy every day, are gone. I just can’t change this fact.
    I learned to be ok with my scars… But it was a long way.
    Bu then it came back. And that was the worst part. I was desperate. Again? I thought this was over. These moments were the hardest for me. To realise it’s not over at all… And maybe this will last for all my life.
    Now I’m on the pill. I know, there are better options. But I’ve just moved to Iceland where I study and everything is super expensive and my scholarship is not enough to pay a rent… So I work, but still it’s not enough to pay for more than my room and food. But even I’m on the pill, I’m not ok. After moving to a different place, with different climate, it’s a disaster and these moths I should enjoy as I can are worse because of my acne. Anyways… I want to stay here. I’m applying for another scholarship to study Icelandic language and I want to find a better job – to be able to pay for something extra like Fran’s consultations, because when I read all these comments here, I hope it will help me also. But for now… I just want to do at least something to enjoy my Erasmus program in Iceland, it the country I was always dreaming about… I was praying for these days for a long time and now… You know the feeling, you’ve been there, you had acne too…

  • Sarah C. October 6, 2016, 10:00 pm

    Scarring is my current frustration. I’ll get the occasional breakout, but the scarring is lasting a very long time at the age of 42. 🙁

  • Kricket October 6, 2016, 9:33 pm

    The hardest thing I have found is finding natural products that work. Whenever I attempt to discontinue my treatment products my skin breaks out so badly that I just go back to them. I really want to make the change to all natural but do not want to have cystic acne!

  • Marita October 6, 2016, 9:22 pm

    The emotional & psychological part is by far the worst. It brings up so much pain and anger. Loss of self confidence & the negative feeling that you can’t control. The hard effort you put in every day & to see things are still getting worse rather than better kills me. I find myself hiding away & becoming emotionally detached and disappointed in myself. I will never give up but I wish there was a better way. The scars left behind are a constant reminder of the heart ache and pain. I will always have hope & pray that tomorrow is a better day. We are all beautiful battle scars and all!
    Thanks Fran you have definitely inspired me and kept me on the road to clear skin. God bless you, you are an amazing and true inspiration to all the lives you have touched & faces you have helped to heal xxx

  • Kelly October 6, 2016, 9:14 pm

    I definitely find the hardest part of clearing my skin to be the complete change of mindset it necessitates. Growing up in the United States, I’ve learned to expect “quick fixes” and want immediate results – in all areas of life! Anything from my health (antibiotics for a common cold, anyone?), to eating fast food with zero nutrients, I have always lived my life cutting corners. I finally realized after two rounds of Accutane that taking drugs for my acne only addresses symptoms and not the root cause. I am learning that I need to adopt a more patient, loving, and self-aware mindset towards my body. It’s definitely been hard work and a BIG lesson in dedication as I cut out the unhealthy foods I created a dependence on, but I truly believe this is the road to real, long-lasting healing! I hope to see real results very soon, and eagerly anticipate that day! 🙂

  • Sarah October 6, 2016, 8:45 pm

    It’s so hard clearing my skin because I always fall asleep in my makeup and I know it’s bad but I just can’t handle having to wash it when I’m tired!!!

  • Sonja October 6, 2016, 8:36 pm

    Everything is hard! I am currently trying to figure out what won’t clog my pores but I can’t them clear to even know where to begin. I have psoriasis along with acne and finding something that treats one without causing the other is very difficult.

  • Nav October 6, 2016, 8:04 pm

    Pigmentation is covering up more and more areas of the skin of my face.

  • Courtney October 6, 2016, 7:58 pm

    I think the hardest part about dealing with acne is the self confidence issues it causes. I constantly feel self conscious that people can see the throbbing pimples on my face. I know that people don’t notice it that much, but I just have this image of how I “used to be” so much prettier…. not fun!

  • Natalie Smith October 6, 2016, 7:56 pm

    For me, my acne is completely intertwined with what I’m putting into my body. Whenever I eat something my body is secretly sensitive to, BAM I get a cystic bump and it’s a week or two for it to [decide] if it wants to come to a head. The hardest part about having active acne is healing my skin’s layers. I have never heard of using magnesium for your skin, other than trans dermal magnesium oil. Very interesting. I am checking out the highonhealth website now. God bless! xo

  • Dora October 6, 2016, 7:46 pm

    The hardest part is not picking the skin and letting go so the healing process can take place without interference

  • Desiree October 6, 2016, 7:46 pm

    I think the hardest thing to deal with regarding skin issues is the insecurity and self-loathing it brings about. Many conditions can be at least hidden for a while, but skin issues especially on the face are out there for all the world to see the minute you look at someone and you’re always sub-consciously thinking and stressing about it.

  • Krissy October 6, 2016, 7:44 pm

    I find it hard dealing with the frustration of conflicting information and trying things that don’t work. So many people, products, diets and websites claim they can heal your skin, but everytime I try something that doesn’t work the disappointment is very difficult to deal with. Its like another little part of me has died and I’m running out of hope.

  • Amy October 6, 2016, 7:36 pm

    The hardest thing is that even after a period of having clear skin, a suprise flare-up is just around the corner…

  • Megan V October 6, 2016, 7:33 pm

    The hardest part for me is managing my stress and self-esteem.

  • Elaine Michalek October 6, 2016, 7:32 pm

    The hardest part is being over 30 and having skin like a 14 year old. It can be emotionally draining. I just want to feel beautiful.

  • C October 6, 2016, 7:18 pm

    Although my skin has made some great improvements since I cleaned my diet and started taking DIM supplements, sometimes I still wonder why it is still so impure and if I’ll ever have spotless skin like naturally acne-free people.

  • Cassie October 6, 2016, 7:17 pm

    I think the hardest part of the recovery period is realizing how far I’ve come, but also how far I have left to go. It’s definitely been a long journey, but I have to say patience is the hardest part.

  • Katie October 6, 2016, 7:07 pm

    The hardest part in dealing with the emotional component and decreased self esteem when you do not always see what you wish to in the mirror. Shifting from a negative to a more positive outlook on certain circumstances is definitely a challenge, one I work with constantly, but never give up completely on.

  • VALERIE C QUEEN October 6, 2016, 7:01 pm

    The worst part is definitely trying to avoid sugar and caffeine as I’m hooked on both!!!

  • Sarah October 6, 2016, 6:59 pm

    The hardest part is staying away from ice cream & cheese ever since I found out that dairy is a main factor in causing my adult breakouts!

  • Jaclyn October 6, 2016, 6:59 pm

    Stress…remembering to not stress out over a small pimple or set back and find time to focus on me and distressing.

  • katie schnackenberg October 6, 2016, 6:58 pm


    THANK YOU! 🙂

  • Hannah October 6, 2016, 6:55 pm

    I eat pretty healthy and yet my skin is still flared up and irritated. It is so frustrating and I feel better when I cover it up with make up.

  • nalika October 6, 2016, 6:54 pm

    Not pressuring myself with time lines and wanting results quicker than they come

  • Allie Smead October 6, 2016, 6:54 pm

    The hardest thing I’ve had trouble with is figuring out foods that I’m sensitive too and staying away from those foods!

  • Katina Keel October 6, 2016, 6:54 pm

    Hardest thing is not eating whatever I want. Especially chocolate!!!

  • Rachel October 6, 2016, 6:53 pm

    The hardest part about clearing my skin is staying away from all the sugary foods that cause breakouts!

  • Jessica October 6, 2016, 6:52 pm

    Consistency- especially taking supplements regularly and eating a mostly clean diet.

  • Erin Perez October 6, 2016, 6:51 pm

    Figuring out which products work best on my fair, acne-prone skin! And, avoiding nasty chemicals that are often hidden in products.
