At least 1 of my nutrition books recommends not eating near the same time as meals, so it should be beneficial. It IS too soon to tell if you found your cure though, especially with hormonal acne, which can be especially prone to a psychological placebo effect and naturally ocurring hormonal cycles. Please do post again and keep us updated. If your skin remains clear for 1-1/2 months, then it's very likely that you've found your cure.
Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)
Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)

Trying to avoid: Dairy/Sugar/Carbs/Processed Foods/Alcohol/Caffeine
Suplements: zinc/multi-vitamin/fish oil/ACV tablets/vitamin C/B5
Topicals:coconut oil/Jojoba oil/ACV AM and PM, washing with olive oil soap, BP AM and PM
Current status: couple of small angry white heads which is annoying but they clear up pretty quickly, mainly red marks and scars though

It does take a while to be able to say the acne is gone.. at least a month I would say if your acne is hormonal like mine (you have to get through your favourite time of the month ) so I hope you keep posting and let us know how it goes. I also hope you're able to change your name to happycaroline one day.

bailey- NO, thats what apparently was contributing to almost all of my acne, dont drink ANYTHING with your meal, an try to follow the instructions as i put them, because this has been a miracle for me, and my skin is only getting better, because now that my acne is almost all gone, my scars an red marks are finally getting a real chance to heal, and they are looking better as well.

Sometimes I think we mistake clog/gunk filled pores for scars or icepicks>I did

My question is, what if I take supplements that say they need to be taken with a meal? And they have to washed down with a liquid, is that not good?

Missionaryman--- good question, ill actually be having to deal with this problem soon as well. For the supplements that have to be taken with a meal, im going to swallow one pill at a time, with a small bite of food, and just continue eating. For supplements that dont need to be taken with a meal, im just going to take them at one of my scheduled 'water drinking times' lol i also find it hard not to drink anything with my meal , i walk around horrible thirsty alot, but honestly at this point thats a small price to pay for not having scarring cysts..
hope that helped! -caroline
