  1. Hey, I have been going without make up for about 3 weeks now... the most i use is a little concealer under my eyes (dark circles) and some eyeliner so my face doesnt look like a wreck... but my cheeks, chin and forehead (where i mostly breakout) i don't wear any at all unless on special occasions. Kinda felt better doing that because made me just not care what people think (unless I bumped into someone i knew i would get annoyed). And also makes you feel better knowing ur not doing anything to
  2. Hey GreenEyes33! Thanks for posting you log on here! I also just started a holisitc diet (haven't yet established the stress-free, exercise part yet!). I am ending my second week of being good and it is tough! I am also scared of losing too much weight on this diet as I used to be skinny throughout my teenage years..Now have had acne for almost three years (never had it before in my life) and this summer it was at its WORST! I decided to try the hollistic approach about two weeks ago..anyways j

  4. Thanks for your reply! you're definitely not whining. acne is frustrating! I am trying to avoid any supplements for now and trying a healthy diet and see if that helps clear it up since no meds has done anything for me at all but have only made my face erupt more. have you ever tried changing your diet by chance? I read a post on here about a guy who cleared up his acne through change of diet. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/cleared-a...rs-t288705.html Give it a try if you haven't alrea
  5. Hey! It's going good. I have been really good in sticking with it so far. Let's hope I keep it up hehe. Last week though, I was getting tired from cooking every day after work. So my way of cheating, is I would have take-out sushi for dinner from a really good (not to mention friggin expensive) sushi restaurant. I couldn't help it. Was so tired and was trying to think of the healthiest "hollistic" take-out I could think of hehe. Finding diversity in my everyday foods is tough too, I was liv
  6. Do they hurt?? or have you tried picking/squeezing them? They do look irritated. I also get acne near my eyebrows and they look like urs when they are about to come up or only when i pick or squeeze them. Either way I cant say 100% for sure it's acne that you have. However, if it is acne there are alot of natural ways to treat acne though but remember it can take a while to work: ORGANIC apple cider vinegar (dilute it with water to drink and also use as a toner); taking supplements such as zin
  7. No worries.. Takes a bit of time to get used to reminding yourself that you were never bothered by other people's acne, but when you do things get easier and you can start to look people in the eye again when talking to them! That's one of the biggest things that has helped me to cope. I look them directly in the eyes. Sometimes I probably look like a weirdo. Anyone who keeps looking around my face, I instantly cross them off my christmas card list :snooty: You'll find that most people look you
  8. I came across a few articles the other day about acne and hormones and think it may help explain the facial hair growth: This is a passage from the first: Acne and Extra Hair Increases in hair growth and female acne do, unfortunately, go together because the hormonal cause of the two conditions is the same. In both cases, androgens (testosterone and related hormones) act to trigger the condition. The initial event in acne is increased oil production. The oil is produced in the sebaceous glands
  9. Was just wondering if anyone has ever tried this product before as there are no reviews online on the product itself other than from the merchant's website. It's supposed to be a natural detox to rid your skin of all disorders.
  10. Hey Beatrice! I was wondering if you wouldnt mind posting up pics of before and after? I am just wondering if ur acne was similar to mine. My acne is mainly concentrated at the centre of my cheeks area and its been there for almost 3 years!! I got acne out of no where when i was 22 and nothing has worked. Derms say its not hormonal although I have never done any testing. But I can't tell if it is.. I dont have irregular periods but I do get acne flare ups a week before my periods. However durin
  11. Thanks for your feedback! Your definitely right; before I had acne it never bothered me when other people had it or not. I am actually going to keep reminding myself of that when I am out in public. Thanks for that input! Adult acne is a pain in the butt; I mainly get mine on my cheeks and then on my chin, forehead and by my eyebrows. My cheeks are the main area tho with worst breakouts, scars etc. I am going to keep trying the eating healthy thing. Since my original post, I have completely
  12. Hey Everyone, I have been trying to read through these posts for apple cider vinegar. However, there is 90 pages under this posting!!!! Was just wondering if anyone who ACTUALLY HAS SEVERE ACNE ever saw any results using organic ACV with their breakouts and scars. N.B.- No disrespect to anyone; just noticed that alot of people on here who have described their acne as severe acne only have it moderate or mild. Please answer if you have experienced results using this treatment with SEVERE acne.
  13. Hey! Genuinely glad your face is healing. Your post was really interesting and just finished looking up on perioral dermatitis. My acne is somewhat similar to yours. My new derm actually told me that I have been misdiagnosed these past three yrs and that i have rosacea. Wasn't sure if to believe him or not because after seeing so many derms im skeptical about most doctors i guess. Esp since his medication has not worked on me yet. I have an appointment with him next week though so I will defini
  14. Thanks everyone for your replies! Sorry I have been on acne.org SOO many times but have never posted so this was my very first post. Anyways you have no idea how much ur replies actually are very appreciated because all this time suffering from acne NO ONE around me has it too and yes I do do the same "how come i have it and they don't?" thoughts in my head which isn't a nice way of thinking either. @princessdotty: I hope the meds work for you! I really do, having clear skin all ur life and the
  15. Hey I have actually came across your website several times about getting rid of acne naturally. But never purchased the book lol. Thanks for your reply though, I am trying the natural route now since meds have not worked for me at all!
