In Topic: The Regimen And Dark Spots

30 October 2013 - 02:46 PM

I have such a bad time with dark spots too, I feel your pain!

 

The regimen doesn't do much for the dark spots, unless you incorporate Dan's AHA+ lotion.. That is definitely something to try out. I would not overuse the stuff because that can cause definite irritation but you need to try the stuff!!! Almost a miracle cure really. I saw results the morning after using it at night. And really great results the following weeks.

 

Let me know if you try it out and how it works for you!

Very eager to try! I also researched a little further to see if I could get a large amount of B5 from foods, and I'm out of luck because all of them are either really disgusting (mushrooms.. blek!) or I can't digest them (gluten/milk)!!

I could just eat A LOT of fish, sunflower seeds and avocados (which are great in a million different ways)!


In Topic: Random Bouts Of Acne?

Thanks for the response - the tea tree oil i use says TEA TREE OIL 20% LOTION and I apply it directly on the acne a couple of times at night. Is that too strong? It's been 4 days and counting and this sucker and a half refuse to go... they're not even at the picking stage yet because it's so deeply ingrained. Yuck... 
I will def. work on cutting out dairy and see if that makes any difference. Will also try the lemon every night theory to see if that helps. I often end up getting similar spots just once every month! SUCKS.

 

I just buy pure Tea Tree Oil so I can make my own concoction. What is the full list of ingredients? It could be a little too potent, maybe try mixing it with a gentle lotion and adding more and more of it until your skin is ready for full strength.

 

Lemon is great for you, please be sure to let me know how you feel a week or so in! :)

:( I'm sorry to hear that nothing works for you, and it does sound like you've tried it all. Have you been to a derm?


In Topic: Diet And Supplements Log

I see that you like to use the holistic approach when it comes to your acne. I think that's wonderful! 

 

Have you ever tried borage oil? (taken internally) I just bought some because I recently read a story about a girl who went to a holistic derm and he told her to take Borage Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Zinc. She said that it cleared her acne 8 weeks. =) I love my supplements and I recently starting taking these so I thought I would share.

 

Best of luck to you!

Hey Ghost! I haven't tried borage oil, is it working for you? What does it help with? I am using a vitamin e oil topically, but it's too early to tell if it's working. Unfortunately, every time I try to take zinc supplements I break out, no matter what brand it is, so I just try to get some zinc from different foods.

 

 

 

 

NOOOOOOOO - please do NOT apply vitamin E directly to the skin. If you have sensitive skin (which most of us acne.orgers do) it is a huge no no. It broke me out for months.

 

 

And inositol sounds like a miracle cure. Have you tried it??? Let me know if it works for you. It's supposed to help with overall cellular health.
