  1. I am not advertising. If you look at some of my other posts you can see pictures of me and my acne. Heck, I'm just wanting advice on products to help heal my train-wreck skin. Besides everybody else posts links all the time!
  2. But would probiotics do any harm? I'm confused if i should take it or not now after hearing most people say they can only be beneficial. Thank you! In regard to the aloe vera, does this brand look good to you? Claims to be 100% pure aloe with out any chemicals or additives.
  3. Has anybody tried the Roots aloe vera brand? Supposedly it is organic 100% aloe vera with no chemicals or additives. That explains why it needs to be refrigerated. I am thinking about getting this in the hope that it will help my acne. red marks, and inflamed skin. Opinions?

  4. Thank you so much for your response! I actually do take a probiotic but it's definitely not nearly as strong as the Inner Health Plus brand you recommended (which I googled). Also I will try the aloe vera. I am wondering... Where should I purchase that probiotic brand from? You can't order it directly from the company. I have heard it really matters where you buy probiotics as some stores ship out their products in a way that kills a lot of the live good bacteria. Thanks again for your advice! T
  5. Hello. I have decided to post a picture of my condition, as hard as this is for me to post this. I am desperate and at the breaking point. I need advice so badly. I have suffered with acne since I was 12 and I am now 21. I am in tears right now because I was trying to clear up in time for college, and now I only have 2 weeks left until the semester starts. I have been eating very healthy for years, and a few months ago I completely cut out gluten, sugar, dairy, and all processed foods. Basically
  6. I should also say that I am on Spironolactone right now as my derm thinks this may be due to hormones. However, she said that the Spironolactone will not help with the blackheads, red marks, or inflammation. Time will tell if it gets rid of the active pimples. Also, the blackheads are extremely deep-seated and stubborn.

  8. I have decided to supplement with Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) as I have heard this vitamin can dramatically help acne. (I'm starting with 3 grams and will work my way up to 5 grams. Once I am clear, I plan to reduce the dose back down to 3 grams. I understand that in order for Pantothenic Acid to be effective and to prevent deficiency in the other B vitamins, I need to take a B-complex. However I have also read that B-complex is a huge acne trigger??? I am hoping though that that the higher do
  9. Thanks for your replies. Do you think my acne will get even more severe if I get off of it suddenly, especially while I could very well be in the middle of an intital breakout right now? Or should I power through it, see if it improves, and then wean off? Also, what do you recommend for inflammation besides diet (I am already eating lots of anti-inflammatory foods.)
  10. I eat a pretty healthy diet-- 10 glasses of water a day, lots of fruits/veggies, eggs, fish, turkey, and occasionally brown rice with olive oil. Also nuts once in a while. No sugar, wheat, caffeine, or starch. I get 8 hours of sleep per night. And I do try and keep my stress levels down the best I can, as I know that stress greatly contributes to acne. Generally I manage to stay pretty relaxed, however I must admit that this morning I saw myself in the mirror and completely lost it. I know,
  11. I have been on rounds of different antibiotics pretty consistently for 3 years. They would always keep me clear for about 4 to 6 months before the derm would have to prescribe me a new one. Early this year, I began breaking out again very badly and now I have lots of post acne marks and hyperpigmentation as well. The antibiotics didn't seem to be helping. After doing a lot of research, I decided I didn't want to go down the antibiotic route anymore and start supplementing with higher doses

  13. I can't take my acne anymore and am desperate for advice. It is scarring my physically and emotionally. It's getting significantly worse as time goes on. And I'm getting tons of red marks and hyperpigmentation after a pimple heals. I'm just so over this. Anyway, my question is on vitamin brands. Currently I take vitamins for my acne and they don't really seem to be helping. I am wondering if the brands are the problem? The brands I take are Spring Valley and Nature Made. I also take Womens'
