Seppo Puusa

Seppo started this site in 2012 after being disillusioned with the difference between expectations and reality of natural health. It was clear to him that diet and other natural approaches impact not only the skin but also overall health. Seppo always had a passion for science and critical thinking, and quickly became disillusioned with the hodgepodge of confusing and conflicting advice about natural acne treatments. He started AcneEinstein.com with the mission to share reliable, science-based advice about acne treatments. You can read more about his struggles with acne on the About Me page.
