Update: A Year Later

Dear Acne.com Community I will relive my last year being a sophomore/junior in college in a stressful year. I average about 6 active acne sites that still bother me. For the longest time i did nothing other than the regimen and washing my face twice daily as a baseline. It was clear after trying this for 3 months that ONLY the regimen would not work for me. I have tried eliminating some food groups from my diet, exactly what my blog says in not doing, and have not found better or

College Life: Routine Regimen

Whats up bloggers? THis is my long lost revival of such a dead thread it is rediculous. Over the time, i have transfered to my college and doing the dorm life and have had great success. Pretty much everything in my previous blogs are out. Very simply. I am doing four things: 1) Multivitamin 2) Fish oil (2x): only omega three, not the combined 3) FOLLOWING THE REGIMEN TO THE T! well not super anal about it, but about 90 percent of the time it happens. I will speak about this

10.8.11 Success!

Just follow the regimen!!! Goodness I have messed around thinking that i can just get over the top. As follows, I do my vitamins outlined in previous posts, BP treatment morning and night, sometimes do zinc oxide sunscreen, and use jojoba oil as my moisturizer when my face gets dry. My last addition that helped me out is LEMON JUICE AND WATER. one glass at the end of the night does wonders. Take a peek at the research on body pH, and this could be the secret for me. I am healing faster an

9.11.11 Reset

So, I have decided to keep my updated vitamin, but revert back to my original routine. It is as follows: Cetiphil, BP, maybe some jojoba oil..., and zinc oxcide sunscreen. I will keep this up 2x day (no sunscreen at night) for two weeks. hoping for the best. I have been acne free, but having acne after that just sucks.

Long Update: Hey all of you. there are probably a new round of desperate people with acne trying to find something that works for them. if that is you, keep reading. to all of those who remember my blog, this is an update for about a month and a half. So, pretty much everything has changed for me. My long litany of vitamins actually cause me to have TOO much vitamins in my body, and it took me about 4 weeks to realize this might be the case. Since i was taking lots of lipid soluble vit

okay, 100 percent better than a week previously. I have three healing zits, and NO, i repeat, NO new acne to speak of! This is incredible! Not quite sure whats doing this, but I am going to keep it up. For anyone out there struggling to go from good to great, I suggest pulling something from my regimin. As on outline of all that I am doing to fight my acne: VITAMINS: fish oil, vitamin a, vitamin c, vitamin d, vitamin e, calcium/magnesium/zinc pill, garlic oil, and milk thistle Wa

Hey all, I think i have found something that works for my skin.. for now at least. I have been washing my face, putting on jojoba oil after dry, then putting on dans BP and then finally the clear zinc oxide sunscreen. Have been doing this for about a week, but this order seems to work well. tons less red and only one new zit to speak of! I have also been drinking two glasses a day of lemon juice and water, morning and evening, and this might be helping. Still on my vitamin regim

After doing zinc and drinking lemon juice/ acv for a couple of days, didn't see very much improvement. When i added jojoba oil and zinc, well that made a hell of a difference to healing acne. Not quite sure why, but jojoba and zinc oxide worked quite well to heal bad red spots. I am not sure, however, the effectiveness of preventing acne. But, this helped me dramatically. Maybe its only once in a while that you can do this. Not quite sure. There are so many variables! Just thought you woul

Hey! I came across some interesting stuff. I knew zinc dramatically improved my acne when taking orally, so i though if it could be applied topically as well. Luckily, my brother is a lifeguard and has a ton of ZINC OXIDE sun screen! I looked some stuff up and there might be a coralation between zinc oxide and acne prevention/fading red marks. I am going to use it in place of my heavy cetaphil cream i put on. Hopefully this and/or the ACV and lemon water will work. Best of luck. I wil

Back for an update. I now have a small amount of outbreaks on my skin at all times, and it is very frustrating because i eat well, exercise regularly, and are taking my vitamins everyday like clockwork. I believe my lst and final step will be to embrace the pH discrepancy of my body... Doing a little poking around, there is a lot of information linking body pH and acne. one site that list foods is I wont go into details, but it is worth a shot. Doing ACV, an acid, actually trigg

6.29.11 The Proof

Hey to all of you out there, I have some picutres to prove that my skin is doing well. I have a few spots of acne due to the fact that i tried to go a couple of days without BP to see what would happen.. not good. However, my acne is so much better and I hope you will take my advice and try what i have done. My pics are from my macbook and not too quality, but you get the picture. My album is public, so feel free to check it out. I dont know why, but this site will not let me post a web

I am sorry my updates are so spread apart, but I have been doing very well with my own acne suffering. I can safely say that I do not have one "active" acne site, all are in the healing process, and only 3 are apparent as acne spots. I am beyond overjoyed that this is happening to me. I have stuck with my supplements and have done well i believe. My diet is not influenced my acne anymore, although peanut butter sometimes throws me off. Alls I can say that it was a long haul. I do not think

To all who still follow this, I am sorry i have waited so long! I have had finals and work like crazy, but have decided to get back into the blogging. Somehow, it keeps me on track and makes me try to have better sin. If you dont have a blog, do it just for the hell of it. you might just help someone! Like i said, I was kinda crazy there for a month. I did not supplement well everyday and was not consistant, and what do you know, acne came right back. Right now i am back pretty much on

Unfortunately, I was not able to deliver my results on the kombucha study. They are expensive little drinks, and cost around 4 bucks a bottle they are good once and awhile, but are definitely not affordable for everyday consumption. However, I was reading all the things about kombucha and decided to essentially "make" my own. Since it is like the production of vinegar, I decided to add apple cider vinegar to water. Thinking of a way to superboost my drink, I also added a blend of green and

Another day! Hey all. I am currently researching the affects of Kombucha tea when compared to acne. There is a thread somewhere on the site that caught my eye I just had one from my health food store, and feel pretty good. My stomach was not used to it, so it was a little achey, but i felt great. Missing all those little bacteria in my diet i presume. My face was looking pretty good before this. I am going to try and do a three/four day trial of one drink a day. It might have a

Hey all, Back for an update. Seems to be going well. I have been leaving out vitamin d, so adding that. B complex seemed to aggravate my acne to thats out! Green tea usually once a day, and trying for exercise, but finals week cuts down on that unfortunately! We shall see how stressful finals play out on my skin. My skin feels and looks pretty good. I can never have perfectly clear skin, but I am glad that it is improved tremendously before i started. Looking for that next step to take

Hey hey! good news! I am back on the "normal" regimen, but have decided to just go all out and give my body the best possible chance. Currently I am taking these supplements of their suggested serving size: A,E, B Complex (small amounts of B vitamins, not the MEGA one), Fish Oil, Garlic Oil(capsule), Zinc, and C. I believe this to be a normal kind of daily amount of vitamins. My face is definitely better, red marks have faded a ton since starting, and my face looks much much better. I

Back from some experiments of sorts! As you know from my earlier blog posts, I am trying to pinpoint exactly what it is that is keeping my face clear from the beginning of this post. As of right now, I am taking fish oil, vitamin a, vitamin c, and zinc tablets. Just three days ago, I started taking the zinc tablets again, and boy it is a hell of a difference just three days later. I think this is seriously one of the biggest contributors to my face being clear. It has made my face a lo

Hey all. Some interesting updates for you on which vitamins and whatnot. So i bought my months supply about and have been running out of some vitamins and such, and i wanted to see the affects of how that would be linked to my acne. Some surprising results. Right after i stopped taking Zinc, my face did not look as good as when i was taking it. I noticed more acne after stopping, and acne took longer to heal. GARLIC; this was the big one for me. I stopped taking it for maybe a wee

It has been about a week, and I have started to change my initial plan up just a tad. First off, I am not taking the milk thislte complex. I did not take it for a week, and no adverse effets, so its out of my plan. Also, I bumped my omega 3 capsules to 3x daily and my vitamin e to 2x daily, everything else being the same. This seems to be working very well for me. As of right not, I have two active sites, all the rest healing red marks. It feels great, I have a ton of self confidence now, I

Hay all. So i have been sticking to 2 cups of green tea and EXERCISE every day, and my face looks great. I dod forget to take my morning round of vitamins today, so I am a big nervous. Either the green tea or the exercise is sure doing it for me though. Maybe 4-6 SMALL active sites, but all in healing mode right now, which is awesome. The sun might have something to do with it as well. I wish i could tell you more to my success, but I have now entered a mindset of "good". Starte

here back for a report. I have been incorporating omega three from natural sources into my diet such as walnuts and olive oil, and it seems to work better than the pill version. I have around 6 active spots, getting better after not being disciplined about it the previous week. Things are better, and i have noticed that i heal much faster than i normally would have before. I do not know why, but my acne is slow at healing, so any improvement is awesome. Not much else, thinking abo

Hey all. If you were keeping up with my blog, I took a week off and relaxed over spring break. I am now hopefully back in the routine of writing my blog. Well first of all, over the break I was not consistant with my vitamin supplementation... Yikes. And wouldn't you know it, ACNE is back! if was never really gone, but seriously, all my hard work before has kinda been for nothing. Subconsciously, I guess, I wanted to see if the vitamins were the ones providing the extra boost to not h

A little rant about the industry

Thinking back on my acne life so to speak, I am surprised that dermatologists themselves did not do more for me than they did. My first one prescribed me tetrocycline, and that did not work. He said to keep taking them, it would eventually work. three months later, no improvement and it messed up my bodies natural probiotics and such... Did not go back there. The second one gave me retin A, and told me to take some fancy pill from canada with no generic that costed 400 dollars a refill (30
