Although Megan O’Neill, Lucky’s associate beauty editor
, also suffers from cystic acne, she’s going to all-natural route and seeing an ayurvedic doctor. "It goes a lot slower [than prescription medicine], but it's working," she says. Ayurvedic, if you don't know (I didn't), means "traditional medicine" in India, and focuses on creating balance within the body. For Megan, that means eating totally organic with a heavy emphasis on produce, although sugar, dairy and other treats are still allowed. "It's not about totally cutting things out, but living a balanced life. My doctor keeps saying that it sucks that I have to pay him for such simple advice, but modern day people have forgotten how to eat and that's why we break out!"
