That way you could get rid of acne for good and wouldn't suffer anymore. I used to get pimples near my forehead and chin but since I switched to a vegan diet my acne is 100% gone. Why? because I fixed my leaky gut with probiotics, a vegan diet and started avoiding  all dairy and gluten.

 

 

Why do you like suffering? just eat healthy and the acne will go away.

For some people, it's not so easy...

For a start, being a student, it is near impossible for me to achieve a perfect diet, I'm also very social, what do you expect me to do after a night out?  Prepare the most perfect vegan meal?  For me a pizza is more like it.

I did this once, using diet to cure my acne, it actually worked, but I lost so much weight, I couldn't go on much longer, I enjoy the freedom of now being able to eat whatever I want.

I'm currently on a weight gaining diet consisting of a lot of meat, protein and other good stuff in combination with a good workout, and I tell you what, it's very satisfying.

 

I would respect most vegan people more, if they didn't try and force their opinion on other people.


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

///

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

 

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

There are other ways to control your acne like shrinking the size of your pores and reducing sebum production.

I know vegans and vegetarians that eat clean and still struggle with acne. You can't really generalize that since it works for you that it will work for other people.

 

Besides, not everybody can live without not having a burger for the rest of their lives. Why be miserable? I think the point of acne.org is to help people find ways to treat their acne that suits their lifestyle. 

 

If it were THAT easy to just change your diet I'm sure nobody would be on these boards, but sadly its not. Have an open mind man!


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
