  1. Hey Pianina, I haven't logged in for a few months. Hope everything is well with you. Just wanted to add something to my routine, for those still following. I still do all of the above, and I have added l-glutamine powder to help with gut healing (just pure powder, no fillers or capsules, by Source Naturals - the only brand I've tried so far). I take very little (1/4 tea spoon) every morning on an empty stomach. I have been taking it for almost 2 months now, and have noticed improvement
  2. Anyone still reading this?!?! Here's my update, edited from another post: Most important thing: Keeping stress at bay (my worst breakouts came during times of extreme stress), meditating for a few minutes in the morning, yoga whenever possible, trying not to get fixated on my skin and focus on more important things instead. Acupuncture. Once a month: lactic peel facial. ABSOLUTELY NO ACNE-RELATED PRODUCTS LIKE B.P. , salicylic, or glycolic - those make my skin worse, I think
  3. Hey, thanks for following my posts - I used to spend a lot of time on the forum, so I'm glad my research is still useful to some :) So, my update: Most important thing: Keeping stress at bay (my worst breakouts came during times of extreme stress), meditating for a few minutes in the morning, yoga whenever possible, trying not to get fixated on my skin and focus on more important things instead.

  4. Hi everyone! Former mod here - hope you are all doing well. I would like to delete an old thread of mine (the post I just edited as EDITED -DELETED - link below). I tried to just edit out my own posts, but other posters had quoted my own posts and my initial post, so the content I posted is still there in other users' quotes. Can we delete the whole thread please? For privacy reasons, I would not like that information to still be publicly available. https://www.acne.org/for
  5. Hey everyone. I haven't logged in here for a while, life has been busy, but thankfully that means it has taken the focus off of my skin and onto more important things. If anyone is interested in an update on how I managed to maintain my mostly acne-free skin, let me know and I will update my supplements & diet thread. I no longer take inositol, and rarely still take DIM right before my period.
  6. In my experience, vitex is NOT meant to be for long term use. It can cause other imbalances (e.g. with hormones that nobody mentions in this forum but are important, like prolactin). I would recommend a low dose of DIM or inositol (See my other thread ). I do NOT recommend saw palmetto. Also, look into nicadan...it's a prescription vitamin cocktail that helps a lot. I only take half a pill along with my other supps.
  7. Bumping this to see if anyone is still reading this thread... The mods said it was ok to create a pinned thread with natural/ holistic ways of balancing hormones, so I'd like to know if you would be interested in starting that thread and reading my 2 cents.
  8. I wish it was that simple! Teenage boys won't listen to anyone
  9. I haven't seen him in months, but apparently his acne hasn't improved. If it's teenage acne, it's hormonal. He also needs to clean up his diet, but would rather have an "easy" fix.
  10. 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.
  11. Sometimes people, especially teenage boys, do grow out of it once their hormones balance out after their teenage years. My cousin's acne looks like teenage acne, that's why I was disappointed he picked the most extreme way to get rid of it. He might have already tried antibiotics. His diet & exercise habits are crap. His skin gets worse from fried food and sugar. But he doesn't have the discipline to cut those out - I'm sure if he did, his skin would improve. What is innate clear skin @wi
  12. Hi everyone, I just found out that my 15 year old male cousin has been on isotretinoin (accutane) for the past 5 months. I convinced his parents to get him off it (the derm told them nothing about the side effects, and they didn't think it was alarming that he has to test his liver every month!). What would be your advice in terms of stopping accutane? My instinct is to tell him to wean off slowly, not quit abruptly. Also, what other holistic alternatives are there for teenage boys? I know s
