In Topic: What Helps Your Extremely Oily Skin? Sensible Answers Only.

25 September 2013 - 10:41 AM

I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned. Cutting out ALL dairy has not only cut down 90% of my oily skin, but also reduced a lot of my acne. It is tough. There are alternatives like coconut milk, almond butter, etc. I do miss cheese and ice cream the most. However, it's worth it to me in the end.


Also, been taking about 16,000 iU of Vitamin A daily. Eliminating dairy did more than the Vitamin A in my opinion.

Very good post. Thanks for backing up your claims as well.


I've been avoiding all dairy and it has been helping a lot. I have been eating less high GI foods, but it's difficult to completely eliminate them.

In Topic: Adding Zinc To My Daily Supplements?

14 September 2013 - 09:42 AM

Oh okay then I'll try the 30mg  a day. Do I take 15mg in the morning and 15mg at night or just one 30mg dose is fine? And I've also read about nausea issues if you don't eat before taking it. Is there any truth to that? Also, I won't be needing prescriptions right? Sorry for all the questions. 

You can purchase zinc over the counter. I have heard that taking zinc on an empty stomach is extremely painful so I would avoid it. Taking either 15/15 or 30 is fine.

In Topic: Tackling Acne On Every Level = Clear Skin?

05 September 2013 - 04:15 PM

are you male or female?  and what is sesamin?


and fingers crossed for you!  how bad was your acne to begin with?

Without any antibiotics my acne is severe, maybe bordering moderate. With antibiotics my acne is mild-moderate.

I am male. Males can have hormonal acne and males hormones do fluctuate, just not in a pattern like womens do.

The true results will come after a month or two. Also, I've been getting about 20-30 minutes of sun a day.


About sesamin: (copied from what a posted on another thread earlier)

Sesamin works pretty well IMO. If you do decide to order it, regulate yourself to 1 pill a day after dinner. Sesamin is actually intended to be a weight loss supplement. Bodybuilders were discovering that their acne was going away as a side effect from it. Here's some things I have found:


"Sesamin reduce my acne. I think is one of the best natural products for acne."


"yep, my acne (which wasnt too bad, never had it bad, just regular teenage stuff) cleared right up pretty much. Came back when I was done cutting/taking sesathin, now its pretty much gone as I guess Im past that stage. Sesathin is good ****"


"mine just cleared up completely...then when I ran out [of sesamin] I started to breakout again. I didn't make the connection until I realized this."

In Topic: My Breakouts Are In Patterns. Can Men Get Hormonal Acne?

Yes, it is sort of a long-standing myth that men's hormones never change. They certainly do, just not as predictable (or as standardized) as the ovulation cycle in women.


Saw Palmetto does seem to be the go-to herb for men with hormonal acne. Others that are safe for men are vitamin B5, pumpkin seed oil, spearmint tea, stinging nettle, and vitamin A. 

My saw palmetto I am taking also contains beta sitosterol, pumpkin seed oil, and stinging nettle. I am hoping that this doesn't completely eliminate my hormones. So far I feel fine, but it's only day 2. I heard some men get lethargic from saw palmetto.
