SkinB5 is Spreading Suicide & Depression Awareness through Natural Acne Treatments

When people think of acne, they usually don’t think of fatalities and life crippling side effects. In fact, acne itself is physically harmless, but the drugs to treat acne can have severe physical implications, even leading to death in some cases. There has been growing speculation around the safety of acne treatment drugs for the past several years. As the occurrence of acne among teens and adults is increasing, so are the number of acne drug prescriptions. Acne sufferers are finding that topical washes and creams are not effective, and turning to stronger alternatives. Two of the most commonly prescribed acne medications are isotretinoin and contraceptive pills. Isotretinoin (most popular brand names are Roaccutane or Accutane) works by mega-dosing the body with Vitamin A which in turn reduces skin oil and eliminates acne. While isotretinoin can be an effective acne treatment, the side effects are often overlooked. Isotretinoin have been linked to birth defects, depression, psychological illness, severe dryness of skin and even suicide, yet it remains one of the top prescribed acne medications around the world. Contraceptive pills are another acne treatment alternative for women. They work by regulating the hormones that can cause acne. One of the most widely prescribed contraceptive pills for the treatment of acne is Diane 35. This drug was recently banned in France after leading to four deaths. There have been 23 isotretinoin related suicides and 75 reports of serious adverse reactions to Diane 35 in Australia alone. Most recently, Julian, an Australian university student took his own life after using Roaccutane to treat acne. Neither him, not his family were warned of the depression and suicide thoughts commonly associated with the drug. The severe side effects of these acne medications are not something that should be overlooked. The truth about these acne treatments and their devastating side effects are quickly gaining publicity, and acne sufferers are wondering how to effectively treat their acne without suffering the effects of these drugs. Yahoo!7 (Channel 7) Australia recently aired a Sunday night program on the effects of Roaccutane and contraceptive pills, and how teens are literally “dying for perfect skin.” “I am so glad to see the media finally bringing this serious issue to mainstream awareness,” states Judy Cheung, Managing Director of SkinB5 natural acne treatment. “Many teens are purely focused on finding a solution to their acne fast, and often overlook the crippling side effects of these acne drugs. I think young people and their parents need to be fully educated about the serious health risks from these popular acne drugs.” One popular alternative acne treatment, gaining worldwide recognition is SkinB5, which is a natural vitamin/mineral based formulation. SkinB5 targets acne from within to help reduce skin oil, balance hormones, reduce stress and boost the immune system; resulting in healthy, acne-free skin after the recommended treatment time. Fortunately, with SkinB5 teens and adults no longer have to put their lives on the line for perfect skin. SkinB5 provides a safe, side effect-free acne treatment solution that is 100% natural and actually works.
