#3380555 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by Omnivium on 05 September 2013 - 03:35 AM

I gave this a second try and can confirm it doesn't do anything for me. I took between 10,000iu and 20,000iu of vitamin D3 every day for 3 months without any results. It's still worth a try but it doesn't work for everybody.

#3291535 Everyone Say Accutane Doesnt Heal Read Marks But.....

Posted by Omnivium on 02 October 2012 - 02:42 PM

Red marks naturally heal over time, and Accutane prevents new pimples from forming. When there are no new pimples forming, there are no new red marks, and the old ones can finally heal without being replaced by more red marks.

What other diet changes did you try? I've almost had it with diet, because I'm eating insanely healthy right now, and still breaking out pretty badly. No matter what I eat, if I eat enough calories to maintain my weight, I'm always breaking out. So I might take Accutane pretty soon as well.

#3211254 5 Foods That Cause Acne

Posted by Omnivium on 01 February 2012 - 12:20 AM

I want to start by saying that you posted some very clear, valuable information that covers many aspects of acne.

But I have some questions about it.

1. I thought fat slowed the rise in blood sugar from carbs. Can you explain how fat makes blood sugar go too high and too low?

2. When you say "fat", what kind of fat are you talking about? Surely all fats can't be bad. Many people improve their skin with extra virgin olive oil. What about fat from nuts, or avocados, or fish oil?

3. Would you recommend supplementing with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes?

It seems like most veterans here end up eating a really healthy diet. I've been trying to clear my skin with supplements, but I may have to improve my diet as well. A lot of people got clear by doing things like eating a low glycemic load diet, avoiding things like wheat, dairy, refined sugar, starches, vegetable oils, etc, and by eating a lot of vegetables and healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil.

You should realize that acne is the result of an internal problem. Topicals won't get you anywhere. You will save yourself a lot of time searching if you just try to clear your skin with healthy habits. I admit I don't know the exact cause of acne. Right now I'm thinking it has something to do with with inflammatory foods and insulin resistance.

I hope this points you in the right direction, and I hope I will follow my own advice.

#3204979 How Much Apple Cider Vineger (Pills) Should I Take?grams?

Posted by Omnivium on 15 January 2012 - 02:42 PM

I tried 2.5g, 1.25g, and then 1.875g per day when I was using it. ACV pills didn't work for me because they gave me too many side effects. There is already a thread about this. http://www.acne.org/...-cider-vinegar/ It seemed like it didn't work for that many people. If you want to use it I would recommend taking the liquid form with a meal to reduce the meal's glycemic index. And get the organic kind because it contains the "mother of vinegar". I heard that Braggs is a good brand.
