I actually found a way to control my acne with a somewhat simplistic regimen containing supplements and natural foods.

Here is what I do, in the exact order.

Before Breakfast: Supplements: I like to flood my body with vitamins and antioxidants on an empty stomach

Multi Vitamin - My favorite is: http://www.amazon.co...mp;sr=8-1-spell

http://www.buzzillio...60-tabs-reviews

Antioxidant - My favorite is: http://www.marketame....com/storeitems

Buzzillions Review choice winner: http://www.buzzillio...x-opc-3-reviews

Breakfast - EGG's and a 16 oz. freshly juiced Carrot Juice

In between meals:

Probitic - http://www.amazon.co...-...3133&sr=1-4

Aloe Juice - In my experience Strawberry Kiwi is the best tasting: http://www.marketame...-aloe-juice.htm

These two digestive supplements will help prevent/relieve any digestive problems - in my experience.


Lunch - Eat whatever healthy foods I can find. Usually a large bowl of salad, and a turkey or tuna sandwich

Dinner - Chicken and veggies / Fish and veggies always with a Sweet Potato

Right before bed:

Flood the body with important nutrients:


Vitamin D - No particular favorite. However, make sure that it contains Vitamin k-2 for absorption support of calcium and optimal utilization

Another 16 oz. freshly juiced Carrot Juice

If I am still hungry before bed, I usually eat a big bowl of Salad.

Bottom line is I think that the large amounts of Water, Vitamin A, Vitamin D I acquire through food and supplements have helped minimize breakouts and optimized the functions of every organ within my body. The largest being my skin.

I also recommend reading:

Dr. Murad's : The Water Secret

Once I applied his idea of eating water through food and his idea of required supplements, I noticed immediate health benefits...the big one being clearer skin.

I just wanted to share in case this might help someone.

Fat soluble nutrients need to be consumed with some fat.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

When you eat stuff, Stuff Happens!

Correct. They should be. However, when taking antioxidants, best absorption occurs on an empty stomach. For that reason, I take them before breakfast. Yes, some of the vitamins (vitamins A, D, E and K) are fat soluble and present in the multi vitamin - therefore they do require complimentary foods/nutrients for them to bond with. I tend to eat the eggs immediately after taking the vitamins and antioxidants. I should have clarified that. I take it before breakfast, instead of after.
