At Home Scar Treatments?

22 April 2014 - 07:35 AM

So its been about a year since i cured my acne through diet, but unfortunately when i first started getting acne i used to pick them which has left some scars on my forehead. I've left them for a year and there is no hyperpigmentation and they've filled in a bit but the scars are still noticeable, especially in that blue indoor light. Anything i can do at home to reduce the scarring?

Low Carb Question, And Blackheads?

22 April 2014 - 07:31 AM

I'm already doing low carb ish, i havent been at all as strict since my acne disappeared but will going strict paleo get rid of my blackheads?

It's not like i have an excess of blackheads, but they are noticeable in some light and i feel its time for them to kick the bucket, anyone have any experience with successful blackhead removal? 

In addition, are black beans and kidney beans ok to have on low carb? Are they likely to cause a breakout? I've just moved from home and i've got no income so i have to survive on beans, lentils and other cheap veg. Any input appreciated!


How I Got Rid Of That Last Bit Of Acne

04 May 2013 - 05:55 PM

After much pain i finally found the right holistic approach which got rid of 90 percent of my acne.. but something was missing......

 

I'ts been a long time since i was on this board, i felt compelled to come back and mention something which could make a difference to some of you sufferers. 

 

People on this board get obsessed by the holistic approach, i can understand i did the same. But its important to remember that there are some other massive factors that affect acne 

 

The most important one being stress! Stress can be a sneaky maiden, you can be stressed and not even know it! each time you look in the mirror you pile on the stress and it just adds up, and as much as you try to slay the acne demon through diet, you'll never succeed if you don't resolve the stress issue.

 

So what to do:

 I noticed a considerable change when i just let go and stopped looking in the mirror all together. I read about stress causing acne and i knew looking in the mirror induced stress, so i stopped, and those spots that i could never vanquish through diet faded and died. 

 

I'm just saying, if you're diet isn't working then you should definitely consider stopping looking in the mirror. I recommend 1 glance every 24 hours or less!! 

 

p.s. i'd also like to add that this board probably saved my life!
