Acne is a many-faceted condition. Not only do you have the physical acne, which can be painful in its own right, but acne also creates strong negative emotions. In addition to that, acne is often caused by core emotional issues and beliefs that need to be addressed. Once these deeper core issues are cleared, the body has no need for acne, and it heals on its own.

I want to share some of the tapping approaches I used for my acne that I found very helpful for the physical aspects of it. There are emotional components of acne as well, but since EFT is such a versatile and powerful tool, relief can come on many levels. This is how I got relief for the physical side of acne.

I would usually tap one or two rounds on acne in general, and then focus in on the individual aspects of my acne that were bothering me.

Just as with normal EFT application, targeting specifics gave the best results. It felt uncomfortable at first, yet being as descriptive and lurid as possible when creating Setup Statements brought the most relief. I tapped on any aspects that came to mind for me, especially the parts that carried a strong negative emotional physical charge, such as whiteheads or cysts.

Using the specific location of the acne, like the chin, forehead, or back also helped to create effective Setup Statements.

I would also create Setups around individual zits, which was especially helpful if a particular pimple was causing more distress than usual.

We tap:

Even though I have all this acne on my skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this pimple on my cheek, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have these zits around my mouth, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this painful pimple on my chin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though this zit is painful to the touch, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have these painful bumps just below the skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have these whiteheads on my skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have these huge white zits on my cheekbone, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I just want to pick at these whiteheads, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this itchiness, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I need to itch this acne so much, I deeply and completely accept myself.

As soon as I finished the tapping rounds targeting the itchiness, I felt a sensation like cool water running down over my face, and the itchy feeling was completely gone. This was one of the most physically beautiful feelings of relief I’ve ever gotten from EFT.

I often tapped several rounds on the redness and inflammation before I left the house, or before I went into a social situation.

It was remarkable because my acne would fade, the redness would lessen, and pimples would simply not stand out against the rest of my skin so much.

I tap:

Even though I have all this redness on my skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this inflammation on my cheeks, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have these zits that are red and inflamed on my cheek, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this oily skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this dry skin, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Another technique that I used was to describe the feelings that I wanted to feel. This is an inspirational part of acne tapping, where we simply let our imagination go free and create the best outcome that we could wish for.

I tap:

Even though I have this redness on my cheeks, I can feel it fading away, as I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I have this inflammation on my face, I choose to feel coolness suffusing my face and my skin growing pale and clear.

Even though I have this acne, I can feel it healing and fading away to nothing. I feel my skin growing smooth and beautiful.

The most dramatic healing I experienced was when three very large and painful pimples appeared on my cheek one day. I knew from past experience that these zits were the kind that took a full week to begin healing, were extremely painful to the touch, and afterward left red marks that lasted for months.

I tapped for about 20 minutes, covering all aspects I could think of. Several hours later, I realized that the pimples were no longer painful to the touch. Within two days they were completely gone, without even leaving a red mark. I was blown away. As far as my acne went, this kind of healing was unprecedented.

Not all of my tapping was that dramatic or successful, but to this day it stands as a mark of just how fast and dramatically EFT can heal.

In addition to the dramatic healings I experienced, EFT improved the overall healing of my acne.

Zits and cysts healed sooner, left fewer marks or scars, and went through their healing cycle much faster. In many cases, tapping for acne that I could feel under the skin but which hadn’t yet appeared would eliminate it entirely so that it never developed into zits at all.

In the Setup Statement, saying that we love and accept ourselves can be challenging, especially since acne often represents everything that we cannot accept about ourselves. Instead of “I love and accept myself deeply,” I would sometimes tap into other parts of my body or skin that I was okay with. Doing this helped move my concentration from that part of me (my skin) that I didn’t accept, and shift to other parts that I had positive (or at least no negative) feelings about, such as my ankle or big toe.

It could even be quite humorous, locating and appreciating parts of myself that I didn’t often think about.

It allowed me to begin tapping into good feelings about my body, which is a powerful step when dealing with acne.

I tap:

Even though I have this acne on my cheeks, I love and accept the smooth skin on my arm.

Even though I have these marks on my face, I’m totally okay with my right foot.

Even though I have breakouts all over my face, I love that my leg works so well.

Even though I have this inflammation on my cheeks, I’m really okay with my little toe.

These are just a few ideas for Setup Statements to use. It’s sometimes necessary to “test-drive” a bunch of different Setup Statements before major shifts occur, but persistence will pay off here as we discover what our acne responds to the best.

Quoting Jean:
This would work for Rosacea too, wouldn't it?


Hi Jean,

Yes, this will work great for Rosacea!

Here are some tapping setups you can use for it:

Even though I have this Rosacea, I'm still okay, and I accept myself anyway.

Even though this Rosacea is in this specific location [describe where it is], I still love and accept the pale clear skin I have elsewhere.

Even though I've had this Rosacea for [however long you've had it], I choose to accept changes and beautiful skin now.

Even though this Rosacea reminds of these other things in my life [go ahead and write down anything that you think of], I embrace love and acceptance for myself.


These are a few you can use. I'd love to hear what progress you make on this - if you'd like more tapping ideas, please drop me an email at my website, and I'll help you however I can!

Yes, EFT works on Rosacea too. Just these last few days, I said to my ive cleared most of the rosacea I've had on my face for a few years now. Why I didn't think to use it before beguiles me but I've done it now. I tapped on the physical redness & how it made me feel (disappointed, ugly, conspicuous, aging)). I got SUDS down to 2 & wasn't sure what the last bit was about so tapped " even though I'm not sure what's undery skin" & with that I felt so much emotional pain swell up & out of me as tears rolled down my cheeks. The pain of losingy parents & going through a divorce I believe was trapped under my skin causing the rosacea. In 3 days its almost clear & I'm looking forward to tapping to complete 'clear' tonight. Amazing!

+1 for Jean's question. I have often thought of tapping for rosacea, i just sometimes think that what's stopping me is being in awe of these amazing stories but afraid that i won't get the same results.. but i guess that's sth i could tap on too.. :))

Thank you for the post! I've struggled with adult acne for 20 yrs and have tried EFT and many other alternative healing modalities with little success. I will certainly give this a try...thanks!
