Wait... What? How is fasting helpful to your skin? Besides the initial detoxing, wouldn't fasting just be depriving your body of essential vitamins and nutrients that are important to heal your skin? Not to mention not eating for 40 days is kind of ludicrous.... I think your person safety would be compromised.

I now do not follow a vitamin regimen and have expanded my eating to include almost all food groups (excluding lactose/dairy). Since I made this change my face has CLEARED UP!

Minimalism people, trust me it works. Develop a skin care regimen, stick to it, and you will see results. All the rest (diet, exercise, supplements) didn't work for me. Less is more.

Status: 98% Clear... Plus a nice bunch of superficial scarring -.-

Fasting makes your body heal faster and more efficiently.

There are a lot more benefits not just that.

Do a research about it.

Instead of digesting food your body will by itself heal the skin and all tissues that needs to be healed. Also you ancestors walked around with no food like 3days in strike and stuff so don´t worry about the safety of the person XD :)

An intermittent fast would be better. There are two ways to this. There was a BBC show on PBS about this, with a Doctor Mosley I believe, and they had plenty of medical support for fasting at 600 calories (per day) for two days a week, and eating normally on the other 5 days. People lose weight this way, and their blood pressure goes down, and their overall health improves.

The other way, where you don't lose any weight, which I been doing for about 4 months, is to not eat for about 18 hours. Every day you eat only lunch and dinner. The calorie intake is whatever is normal to you, but your body ketoses and that is supposed to be healthy, from 6 pm to noon the next day. Actually I cheat and down a 100 mg garlic capsule and a big spoonful of yogurt in the morning.

I'm not a believer in fasting, other than as I wrote above. You can't have good health if you are ketosing for several days or more, and your sense of balance and coordination is going to suffer fairly quickly.

Fasting guys it´s what our ancestors did and that´s why they were so strong and looked healthy they fasted guys. They hadn´t access to food 24/7 like we do. Fasting is very beneficial , fast for a couple of hours like 16 hours every 2 days or so or 2days a week and I promise you will look healthier and have better skin.

Interesting. But i read that one day of fasting wont do much. If you want to fast and get results but low risk then a week of fasting is an option.

A month of fasting is risky but also has the most potential. It gives your body enough time to heal everything.

It takes 3 days for your body to switch is source of energy from food to your fat,etc.

So i dont think one day or two day fasting will really do a lot.

Just 4 days? Hmm that's quite interesting. Since it takes 3 days to fully switch your body's main source of energy.

Ima try a week of fasting.

Btw, how did you break your fasting? Aslo did you fast with just water or with juice?

I heard juice fast will just slow the process of fasting. So i am assuming you did a water fast?

You will likely loose some fat but your HGH will take care of the muscles you have so you don´t lose them aswell XD

Well you won´t loose muscle "wieght" you will loose fat "weight" so if you wan´t to do this you have to eat ALOT when you break your fast , so you fast 16hours and you will have 8hour eating window and in that eating window you have to it MEGA much so you don´t loose fat which probably is good to loose XD but anyway if you don´t want to loose any weight eat alot in the 8hour eating window .

Well I'm 5'7" and 102 lbs so I really can't afford to lose any weight right now :( I usually eat 6 small meals a day to get enough calories in. Ugh, I don't even know how to eat that much in eight hours lol It sounds painful.

When you're finished with your fast, won't your acne come back?

When you fast , basically your body balances , hormones and blood sugar stuff cholesterol goes back to normal. You simply give ur body a chance to repair itself , all the energy that goes to digest the food you eat will instead go to heal the body , but you have to fast regularly to keep maintance I don´t think it will clear up the acne but it will definintely give you a healthier looking skin and also will help the acne heal itself more quickly so a combination of this and having some kind of treatment like topicals will do just fine until you outgrow acne. So fasting 2days a week 16-18 hours is very beneficial for your overall health and skin. Salute litle girl.

I saw this post and felt obligated to respond. I did a 21 day fast where I consumed absolutely nothing but water, period. I had minimal improvements to my scars but did have several other improvements that were not related to scars. Unless you already have some existing disease or issues then water fasting is relatively safe, read and educate yourself before making any assumptions. xoxo

Before you attempt anything like this it is important that you educate yourself about risks rather than focusing on perceived benefits. Using google to find online blogs (such as those already linked in this thread) is not 'research' - its just documented personal experiences.

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

A real water fast is only drinking water for a period of days without eating something.

If you do a water fast for 30 + you will see alot of healing of old wounds this healing process starts at day 15 for some and later for some

You may even need to do 2 or 3 fasts to heal your scars
