Good Things For The Many Factors That Lead To Acne

357 posts in this topic

Hi just looking at this thread again but it seems that most of the hyperlinks are broken and lead to the error: 

Sorry, there is a problem

The page you requested does not exist

While most of the hyperlinks in the food recipe thread are leading back to itself. 

Would I be correct in assuming that most of the links that link to acne.org are broken and would have to be fixed somehow?

Yes. Every time they update the  server software links get broken & other weirdness happens.  I used to fix them, but don't haven't had time lately.  Sorry about that.   Most of the content i.e. the many ways diet affects acne: inflammation, liver, thyroid, sebum quality, food intolerance, etc is in the first couple of pages. So you can just scroll through.  

That's too bad about the Food & recipe thread.  It's been archived so can't be fixed.  But many were created by me & you can find them  by looking for my topics .http://www.acne.org/messageboard/profile/54738-alternativista/?tab=forums_topic  And searches might find the others.

What is good to do for getting rid of blackheads and clogged pores?


The only thing that ever worked for me is oil cleansing.  Edited by alternativista

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I know I've raved about this in other threads, but I don't think I included it here. Look into LOW HISTAMINE DIET & LIFESTYLE people! I will link some of my older posts in my signature in case you have questions.


Current regimen: garlic supplements  & turmeric [as needed, for antioxidants, both are AMAZING for skin], Enzymedica gluten blocker/ digestive enzymes [as needed], nicadan [the only vitamin presciption I take -1/2 per day works well], DIM (needed), inositol (very rarely nowadays - no longer needed as my PCOS is balanced). Also trying herbs for adrenal fatigue. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using BioClin and other products), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency & lactic acid peel facials...

 

Grocery list:

Hello, I had very problematic skin until I had a baby, so here are some tips that were useful to me:
- change your pillow sheets as much as you can, cause at night you sweat and your face is the one that suffers
- always use a clean towel when 
- watch out for what you eat and drink
- vitamins - you can't take enough vitamins through food, but there are some great supplements instead 
- when you exercise always have a clean towel next to you, and as soon as you finish wash your face
there are million technics and tips, but these are some basic ones that really helped me.

Do you still eat grains and wheat products? Those are considered healthy for some but it can also cause inflammation and increase in oil production to those who are sensitive to it.

I used to eat loads of fruits every single day thinking it was fine since it's healthy but I realized that too much of everything can be harmful to your health even fruits. Fruits contain sucrose. Sucrose is still sugar. Our Liver is responsible for breaking down sucrose. 

Now that I cut down my fruit intake, I noticed I have lesser clogged pores and my skin isn't that oily compared to before I started and i've only been doing it for 5 days.
