Your skin looks really nice! Really! I understand it can be hard to find those triggers. I personally don't have any itching or red bumps on the rest of my body (yeah, body acne...). 

 

I found an institute here in the Netherlands that can test for many many food allergies or sensitivities (on all popular foods) and also for the products you mentioned. I think it would be very helpful if I took those tests, that will show where I'm sensitive for. I think it's more about avoiding your personal triggers, rather than avoiding anything. At least, I think that's the way I will do it do keep on doing it. There's no way I could otherwise stick to it. 

 

I think in may/june I will pump up the lifestyle even more. I will swtich my whole grain bread to whole grain spelt (organic) and for breakfast some eggs. At night just quinoa or brown rice. I already eat about 300/400 g of vedgetables. 

 

I started eating garlic since yesterday, because I read somewhere it was just as strong as an antibiotic, but I read controversal stories so we will see how that goes! 

 

Weirdly, the acne seems to be a bit worse than last year around this time, while I'm eating healthier, less stress and taking more care of myself. Hmm..

 started eating garlic 3-4 years ago almost daily, and many periods (many weeks) almost every meal (circumstances), and i can tell you garlic means almost nothing to acne.

also if ur looking for a natural antibiotic, since this is how i started my diet-treatment, you can forget propolis also. i took raw propolis daily (rather nightly) with no exception (3-4y ago). there's no replacement for antibiotics. (but i still don't recommend them since bp is invented, like "brevoxyl", etc)

 

and eating healthy.. our medicine understanding is very limited, so doctors have no clue what healthy diet is imo. i guess i'm exaggerating a bit, but you get the idea, an as healthy diet as i possibly could, didn't do much to my acne. it can slow the rate of cysts but nothing for whiteheads.

 

there should be a topic for each of these elements, so we can benefit from a real forum.

I get your point, but I just don't want to believe that this is me being doomed with acne, until menopause. I just don't. I really don't believe that diet is going to be my holy grail, because - as I said - I already eat pretty healthy. A lot healthier than most other people, and it did not make much of a difference - if any, at all. But I'm on a pretty light version of birth control, a pill that could help with acne, but could also do nothing at all. I have mild acne right now, so I'm really hoping it stays this way after I quit BCP. I have to come off some day... I think I'll be able to keep it in check if my balance stay balanced. What do you do to keep your skin clear?

if you checked acne sites and forums, there are women past 60y with acne, the only thing that keeps it in check for them is antibiotics.

i hope you didn't try bp yet, because this could be your answer. it seems to be mine. using brevoxyl almost completely blocked my whiteheads with no redness, no burn, no flacky -  dryness (but i use a moisturiser), and it's only been 4 days of use. price: 4euro, lasts for 1/2months i think. i'm getting a spf cream and that's it.

 

the back acne.. i'm still trying all sorts of nonsense.. i'm taking vit A, and B complex. again lol. give the carbs-few-as-possible another week/weeks to see if they have any impact, but.. there are guys here a bit older than me who tryied all of this and ..no

ultimately i put my trust in medicine and real scientists, and check from time to time.

Back acne could be a reaction to clothing or laundry detergents. If it looks the same as the type of acne on your face, then it's not a reaction probably. But if it looks like a rash/ inflammed, then it's worth looking into fabrics and./or detergents/shower wash & potential reactions.

ha, back acne is acne, there is a difference in that it's mostly reddish pimples or more cysts and a bit less whiteheads(as opossed to my face, which is the other way around), but the difference is only in percentages and rates. i only wash with sulfur soap, so no shampoo or anything and i knew about fabric softeners/perfumes etc a long time ago.

my back acne really devoloped to it's fullest during my 16-17y when i was a little *loco* on lifting weights at the gym. this is the only thing that i liked about alternativista's latest vit. B2(+vit A) theory link. that hormones need those vitamins as a teenager and the physical effort further needs these.

but logic ends here.

 

male hormones testing and cataloguing that i googled this evening make me lose any respect for these so called "specialists"

I have used benzoyl peroxide from when I was 12. I stopped it many many years ago, so I already decided that I wanna go on the regimen, just to see how that works. I know for sure my acne is hormonal, so maybe diet would play a bigger role for me than for you. For example, I shouldn't try binge eating on chocolat. This will kill my face instantly. I have back acne too and I would say it's quit the same as on my face. However, it's more bumpy than whitehead-ish, which characterizes my face mostly. My skin - especially back - respons really well to sunlight. In the summer when I'm on holiday there is no back acne, but the face there's always some. 



So that weight lifting - increase of testosterone - caused you to break out more, and you never balanced it out. Why wouldn't hormone testing me something for you? I know I will do this do see what's off balance.

 

I get your frustration here. I def. don't think diet is going to be my salvation for my acne probs, but it will help me beat it. I don't know what I will do to keep my acne in check, but I guess it will me a combo of eating healthy, stress management (big time!!!) and the right supplements. 

 

Keeping my acne mild would be a blessing. Don't really need to have the perfect skin... there's plenty of things that are good about me and it's not my skin... shit happens. As long as I don't look as someone who is virally ill, I'm good.

You should look up sulfur/ sulfa allergies...maybe the soap is doing you more harm than good if you still have bacne.

i'd be careful with the sun, or anything that dries your skin (like salty waters), doctors say any drying comes with the revenge of oily>acne. but yes the sun clears a lot of my acne too, especially on my back. but i think doctors may have a point here.

seems i'm killing acne solutions by the post, lol i'd better shut up.

i discovered it 3-4 years ago (at age ~26), it does only good things, but only after i realised that it must stay almost a minute on the skin to do it's job.

Hey WishClean! You look really hot even without makeup! I would date you for sure. Can you tell me more about that low histamine diet? Does it mean just certain carbs, or can high histamine foods be proteins and fats too? What carb sources can you eat? I get only really inflamed acne on the sides of my mouth and inner cheeks, those are my problem areas and I don't get cysts ever.

 

Aah, I just read about that histamine thing and it seems that I haven't even eaten anything histamine raising foods.. Damn, it seemed so promising! Three years ago I suddenly developed terrible birch and timothy allergy and my nose is always stuffy and runny when I go outside all year round. So depressing, what is wrong with me..

lol thanks for the compliment even though I post my worst photos on here, usually after working out and looking more horrible. :)

 

I wrote a list of low histamine foods somewhere...it should be on this log. Even if you don't have a histamine issue, a low histamine diet is anti-inflammatory. Basically consists of sweet potatoes, lots of vegetables, fiber and green juices. I have now added low carb/yeast-free pitas, tofu cheese, fiber bars, and some other things. 

What are your symptoms?



Update: Started DIM around January 18/20th. I want to keep track of this and see if it will work for me along with inositol. 

Unfortunately, vitex seems too strong for my sensitive stomach now so I gave up for now. Might try it again later since it helped me a lot the last 2 times I took it. I recommend it to anyone who gets rebound acne after coming off birth control. 

Last month's breakout started on January 13/14th...I'm suspecting it was vitex or a new foundation with sulfites. I will be keeping track for this month to see if anything happens around mid-Feb, otherwise it means it was vitex or the shiseido foundation. 

Still going strong with inositol....won't give that up for sure :)

Well my symptoms have gone worse and worse over the years, it's like I'm slowly dying. I have had for years now stuffy nose, slime in my throat and my mouth and these symptoms are all year round, every day. Three years ago I suddenly got terrible birch and timothy allergy, my head hurts, I have acne of course, dark circles under eyes and about year ago I suddenly got cervical dystonia so now whatever is wrong with me is starting to affect my brain function too. I have a strong feeling that it is because I eat something that my body can't handle. Maybe it's that whey protein, I started to eat whey protein about seven years ago and the last five years I have eaten whey in every meal and 6-7 times a day! I ordered pea, rice, soy and egg white protein powders to replace whey completely and I will get those on wednesday! I will do that MRT food sensitivity test as soon as possible so I know for sure what foods are causing me problems. I just hope that the diet change will cure me of these symptoms because I'm really tired of this life and I can't take this anymore.

Sounds like allergies, not sure if it's high histamines as well. I would stay away from protein supplements and just get protein from foods like egg whites and meat. Digestive enzymes can also be helpful until you figure out your triggers. Right now, it seems like protein/whey might be your main issue.

Ok quick update. I got accidental microderm on my face last week and although I hate to admit it, my skin does look better now. But I was freaked out about all the scratches on my face and now they are gone. I still have red marks and scars though...I wish I could get another pumpkin lactic acid peel, it really does the trick. 

Some pics without makeup and with tinted CC cream. Obviously the worst one is the no makeup one.

Update: Red marks remain, but they faded a bit since last time I posted. I need to take a decent photo soon to show the progress. Unfortunately, my scarring bothers me sometimes, but whatever... 

Same diet, same supplements, trying to get some sun every day, trying to do yoga and acupuncture on a regular basis.
