  1. Good Things For The Many Factors That Lead To Acne

    I know I've raved about this in other threads, but I don't think I included it here. Look into LOW HISTAMINE DIET & LIFESTYLE people! I will link some of my older posts in my signature in case you have questions.
  2. Cousin wants to wean off accutane

    Sometimes people, especially teenage boys, do grow out of it once their hormones balance out after their teenage years. My cousin's acne looks like teenage acne, that's why I was disappointed he picked the most extreme way to get rid of it. He might have already tried antibiotics. His diet & exercise habits are crap. His skin gets worse from fried food and sugar. But he doesn't have the discipline to cut those out - I'm sure if he did, his skin would improve. What is innate clear skin @winter09 ?
  3. Hi everyone, I just found out that my 15 year old male cousin has been on isotretinoin (accutane) for the past 5 months. I convinced his parents to get him off it (the derm told them nothing about the side effects, and they didn't think it was alarming that he has to test his liver every month!). What would be your advice in terms of stopping accutane? My instinct is to tell him to wean off slowly, not quit abruptly. Also, what other holistic alternatives are there for teenage boys? I know some alternatives that work for women, obviously, but men have fewer options when it comes to managing acne. So far, I recommended that he switches to a SLS-free/sulfate-free facial wash, cuts down on sugar, etc....but he needs more.
  4. Hypnosis

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you have had success with hypnosis. Not specifically for acne, but for other things like stress management, overcoming bad habits and trauma, etc. Does any one have any input based on your own experiences with hypnosis? @alternativista ?
  5. Hormonal acne? Red marks ? pics included !!

    I use BioClin (I get it from European pharmacies), and have also used Boscia cleansers from Sephora before with no irritation. Baking soda is good, but I recommend only using it a few days a week to exfoliate, and use a cleanser every day too.
  6. Hormonal acne? Red marks ? pics included !!

    Check out my posts on low histamine diet & lifestyle. Avoid any cosmetics/washes with SLS/sulfites...this looks like an allergic reaction (topical)
  7. Inositol's Impact On Hormonal Acne

    Vitamin D makes me breakout too. I switched to prescription strength D2 (not D3) at one point and it gradually helped get my D levels up. Now I use transdermal Vitamin D lotion because I don't do well on over the counter D3 supplements. Inositol can still help you - no way to say for sure unless you try it. Also look into DIM.
