I'm starting to believe in what my parents and most people are telling me...that you can't do anything about your acne.

You just gotta wait it out and your grow outta it,and i tend to agree...

My brothers had worse acne than me at my age,now there 25/29 and they both no longer have acne.

So all i'm gonna do from now on,is change my diet alittle...and leave it at that.

If there's nothing we can do, then tell me, why is my skin clear now? I've had severe cystic acne for years, and as a result of a few medications and lifestyle changes, I have barely any zits now. If you're not willing to experiment with different approaches and don't take advice, then I don't kwow what to tell you...

My brother was like that too. He had acne in his teen years and now hes clear and in his 20's. He went to the derm and was told to take some antibiotics, but he just left his skin alone and eventually it cleared up when he was around 21 and now I dont see him breakout ever. Im hoping the same thing happens to me but i still use BP and follow a strict diet....im more paranoid about my skin than he was.

Lessons learned here:

1) There is an idiot on the board who believes diet is the #1 cause of acne. If that was true, people in starving countries (or those who eat flawlessly) wouldn't have acne. They do.

2) teplo's acne cleared up great (congrats, man) but I doubt it's because of diet or lifestyle changes. The fact that it was accompanied like "Oh, I stopped eating pizza... and started using Differin" makes me think that.

3) No one cares about who deserves acne. Let's not make this a philosophical thread. Please.

No, it wasn't like that. For about 3 years I didn't pay attention to diet or exercise. I was using the medications for a long time. The diet started a month ago, the exercise - a week ago. Go to the gallery and look at the pics. You'll see that the exercise made a big difference in about 3 days after I started doing it.

I found changing my diet made a huge difference to my acne. It was so dramatic and so sudden I can't think that it was attributable to anything else. I was not taking any other medication at the time, although I had taken antibiotics in the past.

I followed the advice in this book, Acne Can Be Cured, and it was like a miracle:
http://www.amazon.co...=glance&s=books

And actually, people in starving countries don't seem to have acne. Look at the pictures. Another thing I've heard is that Chinese people rarely get acne, but Chinese Americans or Chinese people who adopt a western diet commonly do.

I'm not saying diet causes acne -- but I do believe that in susceptible people the wrong diet can make acne much much worse (I went from cystic acne to relatively clear skin in just a couple of weeks by changing my diet)

Thank you.

I'm not sure who you were directing this too,but a forum is about exspressing your right of opinion isn't it?.

i'm just ssaying that many people my age have had acne the same time of life i have it currently...and once there 25 or over it seem's to dissapear.


Now i never said EVERBODY is the same...just that this is what i believe...and i never meant to "Insult" you.

just shouldn't take every little sentence to heart...
