In Topic: (Picture) Red Mottled Skin Covered In Blackheads And Pimples

Acne on the forehead is often an indicator of stress. This is most likely why you are getting these pimpes. However, it also looks as if a product is irritating you. I would look into both of these things! :)

In Topic: Why Can Some People Eat Nothing But Sugar And Not Get Acne?

20 July 2013 - 02:55 PM

My brother is the same way. In my family, my dads side doesn't have good skin. My moms side has completely flawless skin. Really it's just genetics and whether your skin is acne prone or not. I'm the same way as you are. I eat icecream and I breakout the next day with a much oilier face. Two days ago my brother who has great skin literally took pizza and slapped it on his face and rubbed it in to prove a point. He didnt wash his face the entire day until he got into the shower. Even then he didn't wash his face. It truly is amazing how this stuff works. However, I personally believe all this skin care and healthy eating will make us healthier and stronger. I am certainly in better shape and more athletic than my brother even though I have acne. In the future our skin will be much healthier and younger looking once our acne just stops. It really is a weird concept to think about


In Topic: Can Too Much Vitamin A Cause Breakout?

I was taking 200,000iu (yes you heard it right) but I'll definitely lower it to 20,000iu or 10,000iu. I agree with the less zinc because 100mg seems to do worse than better. New vitamin routine:

 

Morning: 10,000iu Vitamin A

4,000 iu Vitamin D

400iu Vitamin E

25mg of Zinc

 

Lunch/Dinner: 10,000 Vitamin A

4,000-6,000iu Vitamin D

400iu Vitamin E

25mg of Zinc

 

Also in the morning I'll drink some chamille or green tea along with warm water and lemon. I basically have acne only on my cheeks and a little on my chin due to football practice. I'll take 20,000iu of vitamin A temporarily to see how that goes. My acne was clearing until football practice, which will begin everyday once the school year begins.

 

I'll be heading to the store to get some fishoil supps along with some of that flaxseed oil if I can get it. overfl00d, what probiotics do you recommend?

 

Any more recommendations anyone? :)
