I been saying this. Had a Big Mac some years ago, and broke out in 30 minutes! Also ate at appleby's 3 times and broke out in less than 40 minutes each time! It's something they cook with because I just ate a salad on the third try, and I still got an infllamed cyst.
Yesterday I ate a ton of cupcakes, brownies, cookies, etc. Let's see what happens to my skin!
I suspect I have leaky gut. It causes food sensitivities. So if I eat apples, cow's milk, or cabbage for example, I breakout. But if I eat poptarts, there really isn't a significant effect. 5 guys gets me bad, though.
It varies, man. I fins if I eat milk n cookies, I breakout by the next day. But if I ate appleby's or mcdonald's, I breakout within 30 minutes. You just gotta moniter and see what causes what. Like milk n cookies causes hideous cheek acne for me.
I cleared my severe acne by finding out what foods were triggering my acne. Most people with severe acne aren't likely to clear on any one else's diet. They would have to do a food elimination diet to figure out what foods do it to ya. Different foods trigger different people's acne, so it's probably not going to clear on someone else's diet.
For ex: Grapes, apples, cabbage, Cheese, Soy, Yeast, Cornbread and much, much more triggered my acne. Too many grains tear down my gut, leaving me more prone to acne.
Glad this worked for you.
I wasn't attacking you. I was just saying this so all the new jacks know that it's not always about choosing a diet.
How severe is your acne? Usually when people make changes to things like diet, they stop using chemicals and products for acne because they interfere with the body and results. As for the diet You would have to eleminate foods to see how it improves. Different foods trigger different people's acne, so it's probably not going to clear on someone else's diet.
For your cheeks: Foods that cause acne on my cheeks are: Milk, Apples, Grapes, Milk+Cookies, yeauh
Oh my gosh, people. Yes dairy is one of the main foods that have the biggest affect on acne. But most people's acne isn't gonna clear just by taking out dairy.
Look at her. She wnt vegan, and it took 3 months for her acne to clear. That won't work for everyone who has problems with food. Like one girl's acne was caused by tomatoes. My acne reacts to grapes, apples, garlic, onions, etc. Along with dairy and soy. And a bunch of other stuff. I'm a vegan, too. But not just for acne. Veganism does have massive healing powers, though. So it may end up healing whatever is causing people's acne without them even having to find out what it is.
Sorry, my main point was that when it comes to diet, it's not as easy as going gluten free, and taking out one food. It's also not as easy as going on someone else's diet, like the Paleo Diet. No, it takes figuring out what foods are affecting your acne. And that could be literally any food. ANY FOOD! Even leafy greens, or ground beef!
I'm a virgin. I avoided dating because of my acne. BUT
I have seen kids with some very severe cases of acne who had either had sex before, or had a girlfriend. I suggest accepting the fact that right now you have acne and people are gonna see it. After you've done that, and after you've let them see it, you will become more comfortable and eventually be able to have intimate relationships.
yes, exactly. Why is that? The full list should be available because I can never remember who I have on my friends' list.
Me either! The profile pages are large enough to display more than 12 friends. Possible to expand??
You mean like an expand button, Delovely? I was thinking about more of "friends" being a link you can click on to see the full list, but an expand button sounds phenomenal. But some people just have too many friends for the page, though.
We are discussing sexuality, not homicides, homelessness, and suicides.
Even so, how does that trump what I said? Did you even read my posts? Because your post is pretty irrelevant to mine. Even so, girls worse off than boys in the world. And males have more privilege than women in most places in the world. That picture is offensive. It's sarcastic in nature.
I can be immature and put up offensive content as well, but I'll just give you real hard statistics:
I disagree. I'll be the asshole devil here, but women have it way worse off than men when it comes to sexuality. I did have times when girls approached me, then were horrified once they saw my acne, but girls get this type of attention more often. I never have to walk outside and worry about being catcalled. I've had my butt grabbed only once, and that was at a bad school. The girls there got grabbed/smacked 5 times a day, and dry humped twice a day, and this is only the school day. A girl was even raped in the bathroom, and I know I'd never have to worry about that in school.
Keep in mind, guys don't get raped as often as girls in the United States, even with our prison population.
Female janitors and cleaners are taken advantage of way too often, and women moving up in the ranks of society like judges, lawyers, etc., have gotten sexually harassed as they climbed to the top. Many Female adolescences withdraw from sports by age 12 because it's looked at as useless. They will lose their "feminine figure" and less boys may be into them.
In the hood, attractive girls are more likely to be pimped, whereas boys will be encouraged to join gangs and commit violence. Even in gangs, girls are often "sexed" in, and they are often ordered to carry things to the boys in prisons inside of their vaginas. They are also encouraged to service the men by having sex with them when visiting the prison. (yes there are ways this can happen! Prison is corrupt)
If we want to talk outside the United States, in wars women are more likely to be raped to death. I don't care what country we're talking about, it's likely to happen.
Girls are sexualized in media and in society. They are more likely to be sexually assaulted, and are looked down upon way more than ugly guys. Even in the fashion industry, most "cool" clothes for girls are sexually provocative clothes.
They are stared at and cat called way more often, and to walk around with acne when you know people are staring just sucks.
Yes, there is less sympathy for boys, but girls are more likely to need it, And guys wear makeup, too. Just look at Kourtney Kardashian's husband. So many rich people wear makeup, it's not even funny.
But these are probably nose bump scars. A picture would be phenomenal, but depending on the severity there are tons of options to choose from. Look at this post here: http://www.acne.org/...-2#entry3486118
Oh my gosh! I can't believe I ressurrected this post!
I just wanted to add, I've been hanging out with a certain group. I've been super anxious at our meetings, and one meeting, I barely talked, and when I did, I made myself look stupid. Yet it's not as bad with family.
Then this week I had this really ugly wound on my face that was left by a cyst, so I sat at the end of the table so only the person to my right could see it. I was feeling so anxious and self concious about it. Then the person who liked me the most came in and sat in that seat, so she had a close up view. I immediately grew super anxious, but then something happened. I accepted the fact that she would have to see my disgusted acne and live with it from now. Now she sees a part of me that I've been trying to hide for so long, and now I can be relieved that everyone knows this is how it is. Finally, I found some comfort. I realized the reason I was comfortable around my friends and fam is because I forced them to get familiar with and accept my acne. Now it's starting to be like when I'm with my friends as far as comfort goes.
This was the reason I posted on here. I'm not gonna take up anymore space, but just really wanted to share!
They probably don't know that it's not your fault and are insulting you as a way to get you to "get it together" and realize how bad it looks. Or, they've gotten used to treating you like shit, so they use you as a punching bag so they can vent and feel better about themselves.
Either way, they're assholes.
