  1. So I just moved from New York to North Carolina, and it's a lot sunnier/warmer down here. I was out by the pool all day about a week ago and I didn't use any sunscreen (I have some reservations about it), so naturally I got my first sunburn of the season. I got a lot of sunburn on my face, and I didn't notice until a few days later that it cleared up my acne, and I was shocked. Seriously, I was going out without make-up sometimes because no new acne formed for a few days. I attached a picture fr
  2. I'm 22... and my acne is the worst it's ever been. It's my goal to be acne-free by this time next year!
  3. Here are my other symptoms: 1. Constipation 2. Upper-GI tract issues like gastritis, heartburn, and ulcers 3. Brain fog 4. Memory problems 5. Slow processing of information 6. Poor concentration and focus/ADHD 7. Anxiety 8. Depressed feelings (sometimes, and not exactly depression) 9. Low motivation/energy I also have endometriosis (a reproductive disease in which endometrial cells from the uterine lining grow outside the uterus and attach to organs such as the bladder and kidneys). Oh, compl
  4. I'm actually into astrology (and numerology, Sabian symbols, Chinese astrology, etc.) as well, but I never really connected it to acne/skin problems. My Sun sign is Sagittarius, my Moon sign is Sagittarius, and my Ascendant is Libra. What does this tell you about my skin?
  5. What is the severity of your acne, and how has it changed with the introduction of this diet? Do you eat anything else besides fruits and vegetables? Did you ever get checked for food sensitivities? I have read that people's skin got worse or was just as bad while juicing/on a raw diet. It's because the skin was detoxing and ridding the body of toxins. A lot of people said that this process takes several months but is eventually extremely beneficial for your skin in the end. Also, I took
  6. I did find a gluten-free oatmeal at Trader Joe's, but I think I will probably cut that out for the time being; same with rice. I want my intestinal tract to heal as quickly as possible! My goal is to be completely clear before my five-year anniversary next year/getting married, but hopefully before then. Thank you for the tips on foods. I also heard avocados were DHT inhibitors, so there's some added benefit. It doesn't matter what is more common. What matters is what affects you most. Ind
  7. Yeah, I went through two rounds of Accutane back in 2005 to 2006. I don't even know why it was prescribed to me, as my acne was so mild then. Now it's moderately severe. Accutane really does work, doesn't it?! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. Yeah, yesterday I went to a pizza place that made gluten-free pizza, so I tried it. It was a bad idea. Ever since I ate it, I felt my anxiety creeping back (not over eating it, just general anxiety). I had been feeling great for days
  8. So I started a gluten-free diet last Sunday (however, on Monday, I accidentally ate a tiny piece of meatball that I thought was sausage). Since then, though, I haven't had any gluten to my knowledge. I'm still breaking out. Not in huge clusters, but a few pimples in various areas on my face (I have what I think is moderately severe acne). Some people have reported that their acne ceased as soon as they cut out gluten; others saw improvement after weeks or months. What has been everyone's exper
  9. If you look at the reviews on this site for "urine therapy," a lot of people seem to have success with it. I don't discount its ability to fight acne, but it's still one of those quick fixes that just masks the symptoms. Acne definitely needs to be addressed internally, but I understand some people might be desperate enough to try urine (I wouldn't though).
  10. I'm thinking it might not be acne, but some type of folliculitis. Or maybe a reaction to a tick bite. Going to the doctor ASAP. It has spread further and looks more like a rash. Unfortunately I do know what real acne is because I have it severe on my face. I'd die if that type of cystic acne spread to my body. Nothing works for it...
  11. My chest looks exactly like that! Did you find out if it is indeed Pityrosporum Folliculitis? Does anyone have it on their abdomen? I have a lot of these tiny red bumps there. There are also just some red marks with no bump at all. Also, I notice that if I touch/rub the bumps, the whole area stays red for a while. This is really weird. Also before, I checked my chest because it has been under my jacket for a while and there was this marble-patterned red rash all over my chest. What the h
  12. What came first the exercise and healthy diet or the acne? And yes, you likely are doing it wrong given the bad information put out by conventional medicine. I've had acne since around age 14/15; I'm 22 now. But when I look back on pictures from that time, sometimes my skin was relatively clear and sometimes I had a few pimples. It was very mild, but I remember it still bothered me at the time. Now I would give anything to have the skin I had then. It's much worse now, and got especially worse
  13. Okay, I'm really freaking out right now. Over the last few days, I've developed tiny pink slightly raised bumps on my chest and my abdomen. They might also be on my upper back/neck, but I don't know because I can't see there. At first, it was a few and now it's a lot. And they're literally spreading by the minute. They started spreading like this the first day I began drinking Rooibos tea two to three times a day, so I've stopped drinking that. I think I'll stop all my vitamins/supplemen

  15. Honestly, I used to never exercise and ate crappy foods and I had very mild acne. Now that I eat much healthier and exercise regularly (mostly anaerobic, like push-ups, pull-ups, squats, etc.), my skin is the worst it's ever been. Am I doing anything wrong? Maybe it's a coincidence.
