  1. I'm not sure if it is my acne that is keeping me from getting a new girlfriend or if it is the self esteem issues that are related. When I had clear skin in high school I had a couple of girlfriends, but now at College I haven't been seeing any chicks. I think it's part acne (30%) and part my lack of confidence BECAUSE of acne (70%). Acne isn't attractive, but it had made my confidence go down the shitter which is even less sexy. I need to turn myself around. Clear skin will do that,
  2. This sums it up perfectly. Acne has changed my life. I never had tons of confidence but having acne put me over the top. Now I walk around feeling like shit all of the time.
  3. Any updates. I was trying this regimen (although I need to get more fiber in my diet). I haven't seen good results with probiotics yet and it has been a month and a half....... Are you sure digestion is what got you clear? Getting clear again now?
  4. I really don't think you should be on Accutane, but it's your choice. Really surprised actually..
  5. Day 4. Skin looking probably worse than it ever has.... Blah.
  6. The probiotic I am taking also has 2000iu D3 on it. How long does it take for a vitiman D deficient person to get proper levels?
  7. My acne is very bad today. It's day 3. Hoping it isn't from the probiotics. It's probably just a normal shitty breakout that I usually get. I also haven't pooped right in days now..... why is the fiber making me constipated? I drink about 6-8 16.9oz bottles of water per day..
  8. I'm giving this a go. I bought equate husk fiber pills. I also bought GNC 25billion probiotic. (also has 2000iu D3) I'm really hoping this works. I was on antibiotics for 9 months, have a poor diet, and am constipated often. I drink 6 bottles of water a day but the fiber hasnt gotten shit moving yet haha...
  9. I started to take probiotics and fiber. I'm taking zinc again as well. Hopefully this helps me. I am generally constipated so I feel like it may be caused by toxins in my digestive system. I have been to a dermatologist before. I took antibiotics that never worked, some gel topical called ziana for a bit. The natural way is the way to truely end acne for good. Medications simply mask it I feel.
  10. Hey guys. I started breaking out when I was about 17 (Senior year). I'm now 19 and a Sophomore in college and my acne seems to be getting worse. I'm beginning to lose hope that I'll ever grow out of it. According to my mom, my father had fairly severe acne when they first met. He eventually grew out of it sometime in his early-mid 20's. This is somewhat encouraging I suppose. My mom on the other hand still gets a pimple ever now and then, but she never had real acne. My sister had mi

    My Face :(

    My struggle with acne.
  12. I'm on day 5 I believe and I think I'm starting to clear up a bit. It's still early, but I can be optimistic haha. Hope it works for both of us.
  13. I just started the regimen, but I'm very worried. I'm 19 and I've hoped my skin would clear itself as I got older but I started the regimen because college with acne is super stressful and depressing. It hasn't started working yet but before I start using this for months I have a few questions. Will eventually coming off the regimen in say.... a year break me out worse? I'm scared I'll never be able to come off of it without breaking out far worse than my current acne. Has anyone succes

  15. that sounds ridiculous.. 3 pimples and your derm wanted you on accutane? 5-10 at a time, always. consistant and persistant. I know it isn't as severe as a lot of people on this board, but it IS acne.
