Everyone that gives advice in the AR Spa is doing it based on personal experience and what they've learned here and elsewhere. There is no single scientific answer to questions such as "How do I get rid of acne?" or "What is the best way to treat stretch marks?"

Please remember that what works for someone else might not work for you. In fact, acne treatment is a touchy area. What helps my skin might make your skin worse, and vice versa. Keep an open mind, but start any skin related treatment with caution. Consult your doctor before using prescription skin medications...even if he/she doesn't condone it, he/she can still offer you assistance (such as liver/blood work during accutane).
