In Topic: How I Cured My Acne (W/o Drugs)

Today, 02:04 PM

Nice post it is very true.


It does make sense, for me diet changes helped a lot especially after long courses of anti biotics when I was in my early 20's. But since about the age of 23 years old, I haven't been able to completely stop the spots from coming even with great diet and exercise. Sure its looked clear, but then its also broke out at the most inconvenient of times, meaning my social and family life has suffered because of how it effects my mental state so much. Plus I was a picker..  


I think my acne is hormone related, as when I work out hard, I get spots, same as a day or so after sex. 


Looking at when I broke out quite badly was particularly around the time I started drinking milk to bulk up more. On this note, I did cut out dairy years and years ago, it helped greatly but now I am extremely lactose intolerant.. I think i have always been mildly intolerant too. 


For me, after Accutane i am going to do all that i can to get back to full health internally and externally. And most importantly i've accepted it, it doesnt get me down as much now, but of course i'd love to be clear for good! who wouldn't...  


Overflood, what do you think about this http://www.lifeplus....ct-details/4471 an acne.orger sent me this years ago and said he cleared up 3 months into it. Only now does it make complete sense.. 


I am thinking about supplementing with omega 3 6 9 whilst on accutane and probably vit D as well.  I'd like to take the full multivitamin whilst on the tane but not sure if i can or not.

day 116 @20mg. broken out on my left cheek and right cheek. two painful ones on the left cheek, not sure why.. and the right upper cheek was a massive white head, which drained on its own and then the matter that got left inside became hard and formed a plug. I pushed it out very very gently and i think it can heal up now. When i say pushed, i literally mean it was defying gravity hanging out of my cheek, i push down either side with my little fingers and the slight pressure displaced the hard grain matter, which contain a small beard hair. 


drinking 3 litres of water a day. Still getting slight head aches around 6pm time that last for a fair while... going to speak to the derm tomorrow about it.  


which cetaphil did you try emma? the lotion? how much did you apply? perhaps as your skin changes you may go back to using it again. but glad you find the clinque one really good.

Hi - Rachael look into picking up double base gel. You get loads and its made for dry ichy skin! it totally put the moisture back into my skin and got rid of the white flakes on my arms instantly (and actually for weeks!)

Hey emma.


so are you wanting to do a long term low dose or? 


Yep same thing happened to me, dry lips and skin peeling off rapidly on them. 


As you deeper into your tane journey yourll notice that the nivea chapstick wont do much, so pick up one called blistex intensive lip balm (think its something like that). works so well. When my lips have cracked and are bleeding, its been the only thing to heal it completely up. i'd also advise against using sudocrem now. Just stick with gentle wash and moisturiser and the accutane. ps have you given the cleansing with moisturiser a go yet? 

Why going to sleep at 8pm? because of the aching?

Keep going, doing great.
