IM GONNA SOLVE MY ACNE...

Entries in this blog

it soothes my skin

it gets rid of redness

it gets rid of irritation

it stops pimples in their tracks

it stops pimples from getting any larger

i eventually will stop pimples from even appearing

the american derma association says that it decreases oil production

this will not cure your acne but it should be on your arsenal of weapons against acne

i apply it at night and have seen a 80% reduction in acne

no more painful acne

and way less redness

i am so happy i discovered it and i hope you will give it a try. it is in diaper rash cream.

it has been 9 days since i started using zinc oxide. i am 90% clear and looking a lot better. i apply it at night and it dries out any pimples i have within two nights and prevents them from coming back. i recomnd it to anyone with acne.

zinc oxide is really good for acne. you can buy it in sudocrem and its in diaper rash cream. its basically like a secret acne remedy. it was shown to be as effective as bp over a two month period but didn't cause the redness and dryness. also the american dermatology association said that it decreases the production of sebum and speeds up the healing process by decreasing inflammation. it truly is a cure if there is one. you can find it all over google if you just google zinc oxide acne. there are countless forums or people talking about how great it works and even how you see results in one night. i personally started using it 3 nights ago and i have to say i am very impressed. all my spots dried out, the redness is down 90% and i actually am happy with my face for the first time in about half a year. this feels great and i wanted to share it with you all. best part about it is that its dirt cheap. surprised.gif i'm so happy i found this and i look forward to using it!!! smile.png

my reuteri probiotic topical is working after only 1 week. i take a reuteri pill and open it and mix with water then put it on my face before bed. I have noticed a dramatic reduction in oiliness of skin, new acne, and redness! the topical also zaps zits by the morning and is working beautifully. i beleive it is due to this study:

Abstract

While it is generally accepted that Propionibacterium acnes is involved in the development of acne, other bacteria including Staphylococcus epidermidis have also been isolated from the acne lesion. The interaction between Lactobacillus reuteri, a probiotic bacterium, and acnegenic bacteria is unclear. This study examined the effects of L. reuteri on the proliferation of P. acnes and S. epidermidis. Human-derived L. reuteri strains (KCTC 3594 and KCTC 3678) and rat-derived L. reuteri KCTC 3679 were used. All strains exhibited significant inhibitory effects on the growth of P. acnes and S. epidermidis. The proliferation of P. acnes was decreased by 2-log scales after incubation with L. reuteri for 24 h. In addition, the proliferation of S. epidermidis was decreased by 3-log scales after incubation with L. reuteri for 24 h, whereas the growth of L. reuteri was unaffected by P. acnes or S. epidermidis. Among the L. reuteri strains examined, L. reuteri KCTC 3679 had the strongest inhibitory effect on the growth of P. acnes and S. epidermidis, followed by L. reuteri KCTC 3594 and L. reuteri KCTC 3678. Interestingly, reuterin, an antimicrobial factor, was produced only by L. reuteri KCTC 3594. The most pronounced the antibacterial activities of L. reuteri were attributed to the production of organic acids. Overall, these results suggest that L. reuteri may be a useful probiotic agent to control the growth of bacteria involved in acne inflammation and prevent acne."

i have found some interesting stuff. linoleic acid may work for acne. it is in primrose oil. i have started taking lactobacillus reuteri, 4000mg evening primrose oil a day, and applying lactobacillus acidophilus along with evening primrose oil topically. do the research on these things. heres a sorta random summary: linoleic acid drecreases sebum by 50% after 1 month. it decreases size of microderms by 25% and immproves hyperpigmentation by 67%. reuteri is a probiotic that is only present in 10-20% percent of the population. It is very good for the body. it metabolizes glycerol and produces reuterin in the proccess. reauterin is antibiotic that kills bad bacteria but does not kill good bacteria. a study on ncbi showed that it significantly inhibits growth of p acnes and staph heres the study:

I bought the reuteri today and took one pill. i will also apply it topically tonight.

so far my acne has cleared up a lot after doing these 2 things. it was a 6/10 before but is now a 3/10 at the moment. so so far its going well. when i apply the probiotic topical the papules and small pimples stop hurting and decrease in size or dry out the next morning. this could be because the probiotic is killing the bacteria. this has worked very well so far and i am very pleased with the results considering it is an alternative to acne drugs without the side effects. the "good" bacteria i am using are killing the bad "bacteria" which cause acne.

maybe. the main component of primrose oil is linoleic acid. look up the studies that have been done on linoleic and acne. type linoleic acid ncbi in google and you should find it. what it has done is lower sebum production by 50% over one month as well as decrease size of microderms (basically the little oil things in pores) by 25% over a 1 month period. It was recomended for acne treatment but big pharma cant sell it to you.

They also did a study on the difference of the skin between people with acne and people without acne. People with acne were mostly found to have a relative deficiency of linoleic acid in their cells. So the solution is? take primrose oil and also apply to your skin topically and you should see results in 1 month. it also has shown to improve hyperpigmentation. i cant say this will cure everyone's acne. it hasnt even cured mine yet but im willing to take the shot with all the scientific research backing up what it does. It also has next to no side effects and comes from a flower. please post back if you have used this before or if you are currently using it and say your results.

Note: I originally took 1,000 mg a day and didnt see a result. Once i upped it to 3,000 my back and chest acne disapeared and my face acne extremely decreased within a few days.

and dont listen to the naysayers

...and it was there all along

hi. im going clear everyone's acne who reads this blog. your acne will be cleared.

recently i did more research. i found some interesting stuff. go to google and type in "huffington post acne milk sugar" click on the first link.

read it and be amazed!

go back to google and type in "australian womens weekly acne diet" click on the first link

go back to google and type in "

A Look at How High Glycemic Foods may Cause Acne" click on the first link

then use ncbi to look up the studies on how high glycemic diet is linked to acne in countries like Malaysia and South Asia. one study said 0 people out of 1000 who at low glycemic diet had acne. about 80% of the people who at high glycemic had acne.

so what does this all mean for us? acne is still genetic. but, a high glycemic diet, ice cream and especially milk cause it for most sufferers of acne. it also means all those things at the store are mostly useless like proactive. it means all those medicines like tetracycline, differin, benoyl peroxide!, and accutane are just dangerous and not needed and usually dont work. once you go off them here comes the acne back. usually they kill good bacteria and make your acne caused by superbacteria which are much harder to deal with after. but NO FEAR

there are some simple ways to get rid of acne and you dont even have to make a huge change to your diet

have you ever heard people say that people with acne should eat like a diabetic? well its true! but there are several things that lower insulin resistance and decrease its release. and its all backed up by scientific studies you can find on ncbi.

-apple cider vinegar or any other type of vinegar added to a meal decreases insulin release by 30%. what does this mean for us? we can still eat that high glycemic diet we just need to drink a little bit of vinegar with it everytime we eat these foods. doing this will lower the insulin release and prevent acne.

-cinnamon! 5g a day decreases insulin signifigantly!

-garlic, almonds, and onions all decrease it as well

-vitamin d!!! decreases it as well by a huge number. in 1933 a study was done and 76% of people cleared up from acne within 3 months when they took 5,000 iu vitamin d a day

-tumeric

-evening primrose oil! (1000mg twice a day!)

i only found this info last week and i almost cried when i realized it was true. i wish i would have known this 6 years ago so i wouldnt have taken all the meds that i thought my doctor knowingly perscribed to help me. i've been drinking just apple cider viengar with every meal and im clear along with taking 9,000 iu vitamin d a day! i hope posts like these will make america wake up and realize that their diet has caused them all these health problems

anyway dont thank me for this because it was already on the internet and i know a lot of people on this great site already know about the REAL cause of acne IS HIGH GLYCEMIC FOODS AND MILK see the attachment for a great explanation i found

have a great day guys!

grinwink.gif

this is all i did: 500mg evening primrose oil twice a day!

1 honey mask for 1 hour a day

the primrose oil reduces oil production (no! i have no scientific proof)

honey has an antibacterial in it it and also makes your skin really soft. I'm sure you could do it just 15 minutes a day twice if you are in a hurry. use organic raw non pasteurized honey or it wont work

thanks to this i am 100% clear for the first time in 6 years. good luck

I don't care if you wont accept my advice. I don't have acne anymore so its not my problem. you can try it or not try it. shrug.gif

Day 2

umm

acne is getting better. ive been using lemon juice to try to reduce the scars but it seems to make my skin inflamed and red so I may have to decrease the concentration. everything looks better. no new pimples after abstaining from masturbation for 2 days but ill have to wait longer to see some true results. im going to go about 3 weeks or something without and see just how better my skin may or may not get.

i think people should try this. a lot of people say the masturbation acne thing is a myth. but there are a small group of people who think its true and have seen it work. hundreds of years ago 95% percent of the people thought the earth was flat. now we know they are completely wrong. science is all about trying things. i dont think masturbation causes acne for everyone. if this was true everyone would walk around with acne. but i think there might be a few people who it does cause it for and this terrible and i actually think i could be one of those people. i would only have to limit my masturbation to twice a week though to have clear skin so its not that bad a deal all in all but still hard. temptation always tempts humans and with all the "sex images" on tv and everywhere its hard not to give in. anyway you guys should abstain from masturbating for just like a week.

then just post if you had any changes in your acne or none at all? ive seen a number of people solve their acne by simply limiting how much they masturbated. so the longest ive gone is 5 days at the moment. i want to go 10-15 days and sees what happens. i think on firday ill write my scientific link between acne and masturbation. it involves dht. i think why did i get acne and most people right at the age when i started masturbating. the problem with this is many people "grow out" of acne or at least the used to. idk? thats the beauty of life. nothing is ever certain so we might as well try and learn through process and error.

alright

ive got 3 whiteheads on my face. 2 months ago i had about 50 white heads.

ive solved my acne by completely stop using duac and benzoyl peroxide. i stopped using medication like tetracycline because it ruins your body. i stopped differin.

i drink apple cider vinegar and take 30 mg of zinc a day.

i also put a 1 to 1 apple cider vinegar toner on my face. this has made the biggest improvement.

i beleive that acne is caused for me by masturbation. i beleive this because everytime i masturbated 3 times or more in 2 days i get about 5-10 acne marks within 2 days. if i stop for 3 days no more acne.

everyone try zinc, apple cider vinegar.

'

i also found that green tea causes acne for me. i drank some and within hours lots of acne. i think this has to do with dht.

ill explain my scientifc reason for beleiving that masturbation causes my acne. it is complex though so youll have to be patient. it also relies on a medical study that was done many years ago. i dont think masturbation is bad for me but it seems to cause acne. i have not shunned masturbation.

girls and guys are both welcome on my blog.
