Hi, guys :) I want to know if there is truly any link with lack of sleep and acne. I have light to moderate acne. I also have trouble sleeping. Over the past few months I've noticed that I've been getting small pimples right at my temples. These pimples are tiny but you gotta know my frustration with them when I am close to having clear skin. I am wondering if sleeping on a certain side causes the breakouts. I am also curious to know if sleep deprivation causes acne flare ups as well. If anyone has noticed the link, I would be grateful to know what you did to solve this issue. Like do you wash your pillow case every 3 days? Kind of off topic and silly, but any help on falling asleep? Any tips would be great!

Yes. Check the posts on cardian rhythm on the lifestyle forum.

Personally, acupuncture and yoga help me sleep better


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
