1. Last Month
  2. I agree with VulneraryRain, don't pop the pimple too early. And not ever if possible.
    This will just spray bacteria all over the skin..

  3. Protein shakes

    Forums General acne discussion 1 reply

    Yes, because they usually contain sugar and caseine from dairy - which both aggravate acne.
    But if you buy healthy protein shakes with clean proteins without bad chemicals etc. then it is healthy for you.
     

  4. Hey I would say that it is best to go all in on a healthy diet: omega 3s, vegetables, probiotics. less oily food and sugar. 
    Also a lot more to cover But these are among the most important ones 

  5. More Than a Month
  6. Hey I would tell you to stay a few weeks more - tops 8 weeks, and if you still aren't seeing any improvement then I would suggest to stop and instead try changing the diet and skincare routine.
     

  7. Well I Give Up

    Forums General acne discussion 2 replies

    I agree fully with leelowe. I also have acne now and then even though I follow a healthy lifestyle and a very strict daily skincare routine.
    Never give up, everyone have 24 hours a day - it is only you who dictate your own 24 hours, no one else. So what if you have a few zits on your face. I don't mind and leelowe doesn't either. So now you have 2 people who likes you for who you are. And I assure you there are more people who do.
    Stay strong :) 

  8. Yeah accutane is never a good opinion, regardless of how severe the acne is.
    Dermatologists are looking on the external problems, but neglect the internal problems in the gut. Your diet has above 90% effect on how much acne you have. No matter what.
    So yeah a brief overview of your diet would be useful here,
    cheers

  9. I agree with Quadboy, don't pick on it. 
    I believe it's a stagnant pimple which doesn't form or get bigger - so Just leave it be and place some ice compress in the evenings to lower the size. 
    Take care 

  10. Hey, so I would say that the best thing to begin with is a proper diet. Eliminate dairy, gluten and sugar. And have more vegetables, probiotics and omega 3s, message me anytime on this. And more as well on the diet will give you a clear skin.
    Later on you can incorporate more skincare routines with serums etc.
    Take care :)
     

  11. Hey mate, awesome that you reach out!
    So I would suggest starting a healthy diet, and trying to cut out typical acne triggers: gluten, dairy, sugar etc.
    And introduce healthy food: Omega 3s, vitamins, probiotics, vegetables etc. (just message me on this) and this will all be clearing most of you acne over time.
    Take care :)

  12. Hey, I agree that the BP can dry out the skin for sure, and if you don't see improvements then it is fine to let go and look for other improvements.
    Yes dairy is definetily a food item which can cause acne, but also gluten, sugar, processed food etc.

    Eliminate this and more (just message me on the diet if you want) and instead introduce healthy food; vitamins, fruits, healthy fats and more. After this you will see big changes!
    cheers

  13. Hey thanks for sharing, I would say that this is hormonal acne and it is probably caused by sugar, dairy and more. 
    It is good to have a good sleep like you do right now. It would also be good to have healthy food - vitamins, omega3s, vegetables etc. (message me anytime) and this will all give you a glowing skin :)

    Forums General acne discussion 2 replies

    Totally agree with leelowe. Healthy diet is very important, try to introduce some healthy food (vitamins, omega 3s, vegetables etc.), just message me anytime for tips. And then eliminate the bad food.
    Just stay in there, you can always find a solution out there,

    Take care :)

  15. I agree with leelowe1 - a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle is key to solve the core acne problems.
    Eat healthy food and eliminate bad food that triggers acne.
    Skincare routines comes over time after this.

  16. Acne help

    Forums General acne discussion 1 reply

    Hey mate, I think you look allright at these pictures, good skin!
    So I can recommend using some honey for exfoliation as a good home remedy. It has good antioxidants and is very good for repairing the skin. Just message me for some more remedies anytime.
    Also by using a good diet you can get a glowing skin naturally.
    Cheers

  17. Hey mate, so dirt in itself doesn't cause acne. Maybe if it is some oily damp which is covering the skin and clugging the pores, or if you are sweating a lot then the pores will clog and pimples will form.
    The reason for acne is mostly internal issues with the gut - diet and daily routines.
     

  18. Hey, how old are you? If you are in your teens then it might be a sign of hormonal acne.
    I would say that the best way to go forward right now is to first fix the diet: vitamins, veggies, fruits, healthy fats. And cut out all bad food.

  19. How do I fix this

    Forums General acne discussion 2 replies

    Hey,
    I would say that this is mostly hormonal changes. It happened to me at the same age as well.
    Eat more omega 3s, vitamins (A,B,C,D,E,K), healthy carbohydrates from veggies. And cut out the bad food. Just message me for details, feel better mate :)
    Cheers

  20. Hey, acne sucks period. I don't think there are a lot more annoying diseases out there, and I can personally agree.
    I am myself very sensitive to bad food (gluten, dairy, sugar etc.) and I have gotten BAD breakouts these past 2 weeks on vacation as well.
    But When on a proper diet (vitamins, veggies, fruits etc.) the skin and body usually responds very good. 95 % of acne comes from the diet.
    So I would recommend to keep at it with proper diet, I can send you a list of specific acne triggering food if you like, just message me anytime :) 
    Take care

  21. I need support.

    Forums General acne discussion 12 replies

    Stay in there. I have also tried many products myself, no luck...
    And now when I have started with a proper diet I feel more free and in control (Except for right now on vacation for 2 weeks, got 5-6 cysts on the jawline...)
    But generally in the day I am feel more relaxed with healthy food and a healthy lifestyle. The whole acne-clear path is a rollercoaster, and depressing times are definetily a part of it no matter what.
    Take care :)

  22. It is enough to have it on the face for 2-3 minutes and then cleanse it away. If having it too long then the pores will be clogged and you get breakouts. I did the same mistake myself... :/ 

  23. Hey man, accutane can definetily be rough. And if you were struggling with depression then I understand why you quit.
    You can always begin again with some changes - proper diet, skincare routines, techniques etc will all boost and better your skin condition for sure.
     

  24. I'd say both. You got one active pimple going on and also some boxcar scarring. But the coloring can be healed over time with proper skincare routines (serums and proper diet)

  25. Hey Travis, I get you frustration. Acne can be a real pain in the ass.
    It is great that you have tried out some stuff already, Vitamin A,B,C etc. All this is very good for the skin.
    But even though you have tried all this and more there can still be something in the diet.
    Vegetable oils (canola, sunflower, rapeseed oil), even Onions can be a cause.

    Also daily routines with the skin, proper skincare etc. 

  26. I just made a video on why sunscreen is important. Acne scars are the main concerns when out in the sun, and I just wanted to share my thoughts on this,
    cheers!
     

  27. Hey, good you are reaching out, this can be a hard time for you I think. But stay in there :)
    So I would suggest to go caveman on this one, healthy diet (message me for tips) and a healthy lifestyle. And cut out all serums except for moisturizer for hydrating the skin.
    I know this can be fixed, and you will get better! 
    Take care
