How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

That's no good sad.png I hate starting back at uni or going to things where you haven't seen people in a while and your skin decides to breakout. I swear it has a mind of it's own tongue.png

I hope the day turns out ok - try and eat something tongue.png though I know what you mean about the worry of cracking/flakes and eating. Been there many times lately with the regimen.

Totally agree! My skin always has the absolute worst timing! Benzoyl peroxide and foundation are a really bad mix. Either I lather moisturiser on and look shiny all day or I put a normal amount of moisturiser on and have to not eat to avoid cracking and flaking. Such a pain!

Ughh yes! Such a pain! That's exactly what I've been dealing with lately! I'd love to be able to go out without foundation but I'm not ready to yet - especially since my skin is breaking out a bit lately.

It would be really nice to have longer lasting periods of 'really happy'...

I'll be lucky sometimes and for some reason just have a really good, happy week - like last week. Majority of last week, I was feeling good about myself and how I looked even though my skin was breaking out.

This week is completely different for some reason. Despite my skin still being broken out (and the breakouts are healing a bit too) I'm feeling rubbish, and back to not loving myself or how I look, and back to feeling sick of being alone.

Maybe tonight's just a bad night and that's why I'm feeling down. I don't know.

I am generally a 'happy' person I guess. Even though I feel like this, I'll still end up having a laugh and a good day when I'm out with friends. I guess it's just when I'm home alone with my thoughts, they get the better of me...

I totally understand what you mean. Some days, you can feel happy and think "Meh, a few spots on my face doesn't ruin my overall look and I can get on with my life without worrying about it!" But then other days, where you have the same-- or less-- acne, your self esteem can be in the dumps.

This is completely normal and it happens to every single person on earth. Some people are better at hiding it than others. Don't feel sad, your days of being lonely will come to an end and you will have fewer and fewer bad nights. There are days where I literally hate looking at myself in the mirror and would like to curl up in a ball and die, and then other days where I feel like I could achieve anything and everything I ever wanted. I think it's amazing that you consider yourself a happy person! Not many people can say that, so that makes you a really special person.

Thanks Heitea :)

It helps to know this is relatively 'normal'

Honestly, it feels weird for me to say that I'm a happy person - I think it's because it sounds positive and I'm usually so critical or negative of myself. But I am happy and positive about everything else in life and toward other people or for things to do with others but when it comes to myself it's a different story most of the time haha (if that makes sense..)

I guess last night was just a bad one. Today was good for the most part :)

Hope you're all doing well :)

I was taking ascorbic acid powder for a while, and still had some acne. I wasn't taking any other vitamins. I switched to Ester C and added Vitamin D3 and started breakout out pretty bad. I cut out all supplements cold turkey and it's only been 4 days but I'm seeing huge improvement.

so something's really been bothering me for the past few months. I've felt really ugly because I saw myself on video camera and pictures of myself have always seemed really unattractive to me. I could never quite figure out why. I've figured it out, finally! So, we're used to seeing mirror images of ourselves. That means that day in and day out, we see a reverse image. Our left is on the right and our right is on the left. Now, imagine if I showed you a line angled 10 degrees from the median. Then, I showed you that line angled 10 degrees in the other direction. You would notice the large difference in angling (they're going in opposite directions - that's a HUGE difference), even though both lines are only 10 degrees from the median. Another example is how you feel like you are blinded by the sun when you exit a dark room. It's ALL about perception! The reason we look so weird in pictures and video is that our brain has become wired to see our reversed image. Any asymmetries look exaggerated when we see our "real" image because they are in the opposite direction to what we except. Our faces look lopsided! So, never fear, what you seem to look like in a picture or video is NOT how you look. Disregard that! You look pretty much like what you see in the mirror. That's a fairly accurate representation of how people see you!

Thanks for saying this because it's my biggest insecurity. Everything you said makes sense. When I look in the mirror, the assymetry of my face seems minor, but in pictures, I feel disturbed by how crooked my face looks. It's a combination of being used to what we see in the mirror but also I think we tend to hold ourselves in the "best possible position" while looking in the mirror to have the best angle and look the prettiest. It's easy to adjust your angle ad look in the mirror in a way that makes you look cute, but it's a lot harder to figure out the perfect pose when someone takes your picture.

It's kind of embarassing, but also nice, when people who know you well and have seen your face through it's bad stages say "Your skin is looking better today!" That happened twice to me today. Anyone looking for an alternative to BP should check out the thyme tincture!!! It's really helping my spots and my redness :)

Manuka honey was on sale at the store and I bought some. Has anyone tried it as a face mask or just eating it every day? I usually do face masks with regular honey, and I thought I'd try manuka because it's supposed to work better.

I used it everyday for a long period of time and my face got progressively worse and worse and worse. I'm not saying it's the honey, more likely a lack of proper acne medication. But it certainly didn't heal anything. Not trying to be negative, just don't want you to get your hopes up....

hey deja...long time no see! I hope you are still doing well

Uh oh...I only did a test spot to see if I have a reaction to it. Have you used regular honey, and did it also make your acne worse? Regular honey usually helps my skin, that's why I assumed manuka might also do the trick.

I'm doing good, thanks! Figured I'd stop by and check in. I still read on the site, I just don't post often because I feel silly saying "still clear" over and over.. what a terrible problem to have I know, lol. I eat pretty much everything now with no problems, although I still steer clear of gluten. I even went out to eat, which was huge for me! :) I pretty much only break out if I drink a ton of coffee, which I rarely do since I know it causes me problems. Once I eliminated coffee, most of my health problems seemed to get better.

I used mostly raw honey when I was doing it, not the Manuka and not the regular. Like I said, I don't think it made it worse exactly, it just was getting worse anyway the longer I went without using the acne meds. I didn't really have a reaction, I just got sick of coating honey on my face every night and still breaking out. I've tried thousands of things but nothing has really consistently helped other than benzoyl peroxide.

What kind of reaction did you have? They say you can easily be allergic to honey.

I used manuka honey masks for a while too. It helped my skin tone and made my skin feel softer but it didn't help my acne at all. Didn't make it worse but I think like deja said - for me it was lack or 'proper' acne medication / something that worked for me that kept my acne coming during that time.

I would still use it again for my skin in general but I know that I'd need to use something else for my acne to help with that.

Nice to see you around deja - good to hear things are still going so well for you :)

It's nice to hear you're staying clear. :) In what way do you think coffee affected your health? I have a definite addiction and drink a couple of cups a day on weekdays, and I've always wondered if it's bad for my health or acne, but I just haven't come across anything to give me the incentive to quit. They even claim coffee is healthy these days, although I don't believe it. Maybe my coffee habits are one of the reasons I still battle with acne.

They even claim coffee is healthy these days, although I don't believe it. Maybe my coffee habits are one of the reasons I still battle with acne.

Here's my theory:

Basically, anything that stresses your adrenal system is going to be bad for acne. This is just my experience and the experience of many others. How many of us break out after a fight with a boyfriend, problems at work or some other issue? That's stress--it inflames the human body, plain and simple. However, emotional stress is only part of the equation. There are also physical stresses, and bombarding your system with caffeine is one of them.

If you ever have gone a long time without caffeine and then drank a cup of strong coffee, you will feel the effects. It makes shaky, jittery, almost like you did a hard drug or something. This effect, although it might not be noticeable after you get used to caffeine every day, is always there. It's always affecting your system like that. So if you drink a few cups of coffee a day, you're bombarding your system with a drug that inflames you and stresses you. Ever day. Think about that.

I'm not saying we can't enjoy a cup of coffee once in a while, but I urge anyone suffering from bad acne to consider giving it up for a long period of time. I gave it up for 3-4 months and that was when I saw the most improvements in my heath. I continued to see improvements even weeks later. Now, I usually break out from coffee but there are times I don't. I think that's because I happened to drink it in a time where my body wasn't as stressed. I think we all basically have a "stress threshold" and when something pushes us past that, it makes it more likely for us to get acne. I think a lot of things can push up the stress load, including emotional stress, harsh drugs like caffeine, bad foods, hormonal shifts (pms, steroid use, etc). This is why people see reactions to so many of these things but not consistently. There is no consistency usually because it all depends on the balance of various things going on at any given time. This is why I constantly broke out when I had my eating disorder even though I was avoiding every "bad" food on the planet--I was constantly stressed and worried. Now, I eat a lot worse but I look and feel better. Why? I decided that life is short, food is good and I don't have that stress anymore. Much less of it as I continue working in recover, at least.

It's just funny, I've been on these boards a long time and seen soooo many people go down the road toward eating disorders from avoiding so many foods and trying to follow all these special diets. It seems like a lot of people are willing to adjust their diet in any way necessary but most aren't willing or don't even realize they can get off the daily coffee train and see major improvements. Coffee is such an accepted part of everyday life in our society, most people don't understand how terribly unhealthy it can be. But google some studies on caffeine and how it affects the body. It's scary. Coffee should be an occasional treat only.

Wow, I'm glad you can now eat more foods without the fear of breaking out.... that's a huge accomplishment!

I tried raw honey before, but didn't really see a difference. The honey I usually use is the one the comes with the Greek yogurt on the side....I don't know why, but that honey is the best I've tried so far, I've been using it for years with and without yogurt as a face mask.

No, I haven't had a reaction to manuka...I only applied it to a few spots to see if I would get a reaction but I haven't noticed anything. The texture is kind of thicker than regular honey, so I don't think I would apply it all over as it could clog pores.

Btw, you said you cut out caffeine almost completely. I did too a few years ago, with a few exceptions, but I still drink oolong tea or sometimes black tea. Do you think it applies to teas that have caffeine too, or do you think tea is better if I had to pick between coffee and tea?

The previous days i had only these little white comedones that don't really bother me, even though i ate pringles. But now i live with my mother again and oh my god.. i am here for 6 hours and she already tried to convince me to drink milk, eat white bread and cheese.She thinks my skin is ok (yeah except some red marks and hypertrophic scars, great) and i should live my life without thinking about acne,perhaps using only some homemade herbal antiseptics. I just hope spiro will start working soon because with her cooking i am going to destroy my skin...

Could this be true?? I ate much less recently, had more stress and felt fatigue almost all the time. Today I noticed that my forehead scars got deeper. Could this happen because of these factors and so quickly? :(

It seems the same, it's just that tea has a little less, so I think you can probably get away with a bit more. But I've definitely broke out from tea too, unfortunately. :(

I like your theory. I think my skin get worse after a breakup with my ex girlfriend because of a lot of stress with moving out, finding a new place and getting everything in order and on top of that all the emotional stress. I was a mess and I couldn't keep clear although I was using the Regimen.

Can someone please kill my mother? I have one nodule forming and a pimple! After days with non inflamed acne barely visible around this time of the month i was starting to gain my self confidence again. And she gave me this bread (i ate it because she didn't even cook and had nothing else to eat-except of course dairy or corn flakes or egg etc) and a teaspoon of "try and tell me what this is"-sesame seeds that i know they cause nodules to me! While i was thinking all these, drinking a spearmint tea to help with hormones she told me.. "are you drinking this thing again? it's morning!". She just doesn't want to cure my acne because she THINKS that there is nothing wrong or i should go to a dermatologist (yeah i did and guess what-nothing worked except spiro which my dermatologist didn't want to prescribe!). O hate her. It is so hard to keep away from things like bread or dairy and she asks all the time if i want to eat them...

That sucks, I'm sorry. Have you thought about talking to your Mom about eating healthier in general, not only for the purposes of acne. What about going with her when she grocery shops and picking out veggies and healthy things for yourself? You could even offer to cook dinner a few nights a week.

I am going to.. i already bought some vegetables for salads and sardines. I will buy rye bread that doesn't break me out. I told her to use whole grains, spaggeti, rice etc but i don't think she is going to do it because others may have problems with the taste (i don't see any difference) and they are more difficult to cook. I will cook something else to eat these days and replace her some times of the week.. she doesn't eat unhealthy herself but she urges me to eat things that make my skin explode.. sesame or almonds in small quantities for example are very healthy but they happen to break me out. She behaves as if i don't know my own body.and expects me to ignore the zits and nodules forming after eating certain foods. Basically she doesn't even accept the link between diet and acne because this is what dermatologists had been saying for years (except chocolate because it is the only thing that breaks her out) even if it is now proven scientifically and by our self-experiments.

Yeah.. she took all my veggies to make a pie with cheese in it.. Isn't it great?

Have you tried taking digestive enzymes to help with food intolerances? I take them every time I go out for a meal, or if I feel like eating something I'm not supposed to and they help minimize flare ups. Acidophilus probiotics can help with digestion too...that way you can worry less about eating something unhealthy if you can't avoid it.

I have read about them but didn't pay attention because i doubted if i could find them in my country.. i found out about foods that trigger acne only a few weeks ago and decided that the best solution was returning to spironolactone, now i am waiting for it to start working. I searched for them and there are some supplements mainly with acidophilus. Do they work from the first time or you have to take them for some time before they start working?

Probiotics need time to work. I recommend starting with just acidophilus because some people break out from probiotics that contain multiple strands. Then you can see how your body feels....but it does take a while to repopulate your gut with good bacteria, so the changes won't be immediate (depending on how many million/billion you take per day, etc).

Digestive enzymes work differently. You have to take them with each meal, or with meals that you know are going to cause issues. I was originally taking them with every meal, but then it got too expensive so now I only take them when I eat things I shouldn't be eating. I noticed a difference within the first week - I had less flare ups and could tolerate more foods (but in small quantities). I am even able to have a slice of cheesecake or carrotcake with no issues. I tried having cheesecake without taking digestive enzymes beforehand, and I broke out in the same spot I break out whenever I eat too much sugar or dairy.

Are solgar supplements available in your country? It's an international brand. I take Enzymedica's digestive enzymes which are top quality, but solgar has some good options too.
