  1. All the research I've seen supports this. Acne itself may not be directly caused by hormonal imbalances, but what is a result of said imbalances is oily skin. Which of course, is the leading cause of acne in most people. Some people outgrow acne because for whatever reason their hormones are somewhat muted or balanced at some point in the maturation process. This is a fact, and I'm not sure where people are getting the idea that hormones don't play a major role here.And Darkheart, why would you

  3. Acne is not a disorder caused by hormonal imbalance, it's a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit with sebum being the aggravator, not the cause. So it's not about "balance" exactly or diet. It is not scientifically understood what totally causes acne or why it clears in some people but persists as a chronic condition in others. The inflammatory response in acne is largely due to the persons sensitivity to P.acnes and the infection beneath the pore, not because we have an unknown source of inflamma
  4. His acne will come back, just wait. Acne never goes away permanently, your brother is probably just in some type of spontaneous remission.
  5. RIGHT! It's so hard having acne when all your friends have clear skin It is really difficult. Comparing is never a good thing though and no matter how others perceive me, I always find myself at the bottom of the heap. Well let's think of it this way... we may outgrow our acne later, but maybe we'll get wrinkles later. All our friends will be 70 and all wrinkly, while we still have dewy, radiant, youthful skin! That's very true! My dad is 51 this year and his skin is amazing! He suffered

  7. You definitely should consider accutane if your skin bothers you that much. What type of acne do you have anyway? a nodular kind? if your acne is not really all that inflamed and only moderate at this current time you could try the Acne.Org skin care regimen once again.
  8. Yes. But on the whole most common type of acne scars will usually be confused with large pores so it really isn't the biggest deal in the world when it's mild. The more severe types of scaring (rolling scars, boxcut scars ect.) are really quite noticeable and at times nearly disfiguring. My half brother who I've only met a few times in my life had acne conglobata and the scars he has made him appear as though he was burned. Horrible. Luckily my scars looks like dilated pores are are only on my c
  9. In regards to Paleo... seriously the "best" weight loss diet (or lifestyle) ever to follow. Especially for those who are insulin resistant and have struggled to lose or maintain a normal weight.
  10. Oh I'm sorry you have to deal with that. Yeah... from what I've read and heard is that women and girls from Asia are borderline obsessive about perfecting their to the point where it looks impeccable. I couldn't imagine how critical they are of someone that has less than perfect skin when they hold "porcelain" skin as a near priority. Impossible standard to live up to.
  11. You're in a very good place right now. In that, your acne is reappearing after a period of clarity (tell me if I'm wrong). If I were you, I wouldn't do anything drastic that may cause the acne to persist any longer than it intends to (anti-biotics, topicals that weaken the skin). Have you had any recent diet changes?, are you showering with different water?, have you been stressed?, using new products?, purchase a new pet?, living in a new area?. Do you remember what you did last time to attain
  12. Ever hear of a dermatologist? I have to roll my eyes at this sorry. You have a treatable garden variety skin condition **Acne** that could be managed with a course of antibiotics and a topical not a terminal untreatable illness. Just go to a dermatologist and discuss a treatment regimen if you haven't had luck with over the counter products that is. Yea I have. I've been to 3 and been on countless number of prescription meds/ointments. So how about you ask before you assume, asshole. lol Sor
  13. I just looked at your pictures and I have to say your skin is beautiful. I only see faint dark marks leftover which you can easily lighten with salicylic acid and very minor ice pick scars which honestly just look like large pores to the untrained eye. Men hardly ever have perfect skin to begin with and they're not even expected to by "society" so I'm not sure why you're so obsessive about a very common type of skin texture which is totally normal for a guy. If I saw you in public I wouldn't ev
  14. What type of acne do you have anyway? by the sound of your post and a few others I've read from you it sounds like it's probably a pretty terrible inflammatory form of acne for you to be this emotionally torn up and crippled by it. Do you have any pictures?
