    Works for me

    Works for me

    As advised by Winged Serpent in his post, "how I cleared my acne after 26 years", I take 500mg sustained release. I take 1 morning and night- with meal. Also at the same time I take 500 mg L- Carnatine. Also drink lots of water, and juice (fresh- like sweet potato, cucumber, celery...) every morning. However, the juicing and water alone didn't work. It wasn't till I started the Pantothenic Acid -timed release -and the L-Carnatine that my acne cleared. After 25+ years!!
  2. Ok, to be more specific, I had acne for about 28 years. And I said what worked for ME. You said smoothies are better than juice. If you're talking nutritionally, then I believe that is debatable. Also Pantothenic acid in HIGH doses can be harmful. I sincerely doubt anyone would have much trouble with 500 mg sustained release - which is what Winged Serpent recommends. This regimen is so simple- compared to the endless supplements and elimination diets I've tried over the years. But it has worked for me.
  3. Wanted to add, I also eliminated fluoride as much as possible (no fluoride toothpaste and no tap water if it has flouride) since I broke out a lot around my mouth and chin. Not sure if that is a factor. I haven't had the nerve to reintroduce it yet.
  4. I struggled with pretty severe acne for over 20 years. Like you, I had also tried countless supplements and diets. Nothing ever worked. Just this year, I have FINALLY discovered what works for me. Search for Winged Serpent on Acne.org and read everything on his regimen. It's basically cut out sugar(which I did faithfully for a while, but have started cheating) , drink only water and lots of it, and the most important part -500 mg sustained release Pantothenic acid(he says once a day- I take twice a day- for a combined 1,000 mg). With this take 500 mg L-Carnitine. Also juice fresh vegetable juice-with a juicer-every morning. I do sweet potato combined with either cucumber, beet, celery, carrot...I use acne.org cleanser and stridex cleansing pads. I don't think anyone has ever struggled as much and for as long as I have with acne. And now with this regimen I am actually clear thank the Lord.
  5. OK, I just have to post again. I shared my story on Winged Serpent's page: "Clear after 26 years". But I just want to say this works. After struggling with horrible acne for 20+ years, I am clear! Here's what I am doing. 500 mg sustained release Pantothenic Acid 2x a day 500 mg L-Carnitine once a day with Pantothenic acid ( with a meal) try to reduce sugar intake lots of water Juice DAILY Always sweet potato with someting else like cucumber, celery, beet, etc. I use a mild cleaner - but nothing moisturizing, because I have oily skin. Also use Stridex pads just because it helps the appearance of my skin. But read Winged Serpent's page - it works!!

    How I Cleared My Acne After 26 Years. Try It.

    Okay, I can't believe I am writing this. After 25+ years of dealing with moderate - at times severe - acne, I am CLEAR!! Seriously, I started this regimen about 7 or 8 months ago. Actually I've been mostly clear for several months, but I wanted to wait to make sure it was not a fluke. Also, the last few months I've started cheating on sugar pretty bad, and I'm still 98% clear. I might get a couple small bumps around my time of the month, but they only last a couple days and leave no marks. Oh my goodness, I can't even put into words how good it feels. Unfortunately, I have pretty bad scarring, but STILL...no acne!! I'm 38 years old and have had horrible skin since I was a young teenager. For those who may be skeptical that maybe I just grew out of it - definitely not. When I started this regimen last year, my skin was a mess. I had been using benzoyl peroxide since I was about 16 years old and it was the only thing that ever worked. But at 38, I found myself with dry, dead looking skin and constant breakouts - I mean I was never without 5-6 large zits - lots of little bumps under the skin - those huge hard bumps that take months to go away .....I had them all - CONSTANTLY. I really wanted to wean myself off benzoyl peroxide, but every time I tried I would make it a couple of weeks, and then my face would be unbearable - seemingly hundreds of little bumps everywhere. So I would always succumb, and go back to BP. Then I found a site online where a girl talked about weaning off BP a little at a time. I started going from twice a day down to once a day - did that for several weeks. Then every other day for a few weeks. Then every 2 days...etc. after a couple months of this I found this regimen. This is what I do: Drink glass of water as soon as I wake in the morning * Dring about 12 oz of juice - usually sweet potato, cucumber and celery - beets are great too * 500 mg Pantothenic Acid - timed release - I take 500 mg twice a day - morning and night *500 mg L-Carnatine - I take this with meal, along with the first Pantothenic Acid * I drink nothing but water - I will add this...I read that flouride can cause acne around the mouth, which I always had, so I started drinking only bottled spring water. * In the beginning i was VERY strict on sugar, but have started adding back in - however I do think I notice a difference when I eat a ton of sugar. But it WORKS!!! For the first time in my life, I am wearing my long hair back in a ponytail! ...not trying to hide behind it. I also use Stridex extra strength pads topically, but that is more so just for the texture of my skin. It seems like it makes it look healthier. THANK YOU Winged Serpent...and Thank You Jesus for letting me discover this!

    Moisturizer PLEASE HELP!!

    I have been on the regimen, using Acne.org Cleanser, BP, and moisturizer for about 2 months now. I have had moderate acne for 20 years and this is the first time I have found something that really works. I have found that it helps to let the skin dry THOROUGHLY between each application. And the moisturizer takes FOREVER to dry. (like an hour) If I have to go out, I'll let it dry as much as I can then blot the remaining oil. But the Acne.org moisturizer is the only one I have EVER found that doesn't break me out. And I have tried so many.

    How long will a 16 oz. bottle last?

    I only use 1 pump each of Acne.org cleanser and treatment a.m. and p.m. They last me almost 2 months. (8 oz) I use a lot more of the moisturizer. The 8 oz bottle only last me a month or so.

    The only moisturizer I have EVER found that doesn't break me out. Takes a long time to dry I haven't used the old moisturizer, so I don't have anything to compare to. But overall, I am thrilled with this whole system. I have had moderate acne for 20 years and this moisturizer is the only one I have EVER found that doesn't break me out. I have always had very oily skin, but the Acne.org BP treatment is very drying, and the moisturizer is perfect. My skin is not oily at all now.

    I like the fact that it's a gel instead of a cream. And most importantly - it works! very drying After having acne for 20 years, and trying every product and every diet on the market, I finally found something that works. I love the whole Acne.org system.

    severe acne, im 15 and very depressed about this

    There's a lot of us on this site who know how you feel. I've fought moderate acne for 20 years. Keep your chin up. As my Dad used to tell me, " There's a lot more to you than the bumps on your face " Personally, I have noticed a lot of improvement recently. I am on a low carb. diet ( no refined sugars, minimal carbs, only whole grains - I'm actually doing gluten free) Dan's regimen really helped a lot too. I'm on Acne.org products right now, but he lists some great over the counter products. One thing - salicylic acid never did a thing for me. Benzoyl Peroxide has been the only thing that has ever helped. Good luck - this is a great sight -read everything you can.
