  1. I'm sure you won't have any bad effects if you took those supplements all together. But I am sure multivitamins, zinc and evening primrose oil might cause initial breakout because I've heard they do from others. If you're sensitive to B vitamins or biotin in multivitamin, it's better to find one without them. I tried zinc before but I ended up breaking out. BUT I heard of many great reviews on it so maybe it won't be bad for you. I never tried evening primrose oil but I've read of complaints whe
  2. I'm in university right now and I've suffered a lot of emotional hardship as I battled my acne. In highschool, I used a topical from a dermatologist and for a year or so, it worked until one day, I broke out TERRIBLY bad overnight. Everyday, I looked at people with clear skin (I still do) and wondered why my skin wasn't like them. Why my friends didn't go through what I did. What hurt me the most back then was when people teased me about how huge my pimples were or how red I looked. Acne really
  3. I purchased a whey protein powder for bodybuilding and mass gain. Before, I used a different brand and I had mild to sometimes, no acne. After I purchased a different brand, once or twice, I would breakout in small acne (jaw and cheeks) for about 3-4 days before it calmed down. And the breakout came again 4 days ago when I consumed the shake late at night. Do you think there is any ingredient here that might be causing this? I was thinking it was the B6. http://precisionsupplements.ca/wp-conten
  4. It's been over 3 months since I've visited this forum ^^ I am back here to update you on my acne and my current regimen. First, I hardly get any acne anymore.. maybe once a month that is not that noticeable and disappears within a few days. I've been taking garlic pill (bulb) - one at night, vitamin e - one at night, vitamin d - one at morning and night, vitamin c - one at morning and night, alpha lipoic acid - one at morning and night, bee propolis - one at night. The most important pill that i
  5. I found out that what I have is dermatitis since my face was quite itchy before. To conquer this, I am taking garlic bulb pills and grape fruit seed extract and it has helped tremendously.
  6. You should check out my thread about going on a regimen without initial breakout. I used to have really bad acne like you but it changed as soon as I started the regimen by testing many different products and stopping any irritants on the face. First, I only wash my face with a gentle cleanser. I don't use BP or any other harsh products because something more "natural" is better for you. In the past, I tried prescribed topicals and orals but it eventually broke me out again after I stopped it li
  7. Well, I added 2 more things and replaced one. I added grape fruit seed extract for candida and vitamin d3 with magnesium. I replaced garlic pill with garlic "bulb" pill which I found in target. Candida is basically like a fungal bacteria that can cause acne because it excretes the toxins through the face if there is a build up of the yeasts. So, I tested it at home where I took a glass of water in the morning and spit into it. If legs form and then sink to the bottom within 3-4 minutes, you have
  8. Umm if you want to take the powder form, you take a spoon and fill it up half of it or more. Then, you take a sip of water (just a little bit) and don't swallow it. Open your mouth wide, put it in your mouth, and drink lots of water. When I first tried it, I hated the taste.
  9. I've gotten rid of a lot of my acne cleared from my regimen posted on another thread.. but I still seem to have these acne red marks along with redness.. and I was wondering what this redness has to do with? Is it acne scar or rosacea? I am currently using aloe vera to help with the redness but I can't get rid of it.. and I went to the dermatologist a month ago and when I mentioned rosacea, they just ignored the subject and said that I only have acne.
  10. I've attached the photo here to show you my current acne state.. as you see my face isn't inflamed anymore and left with a few marks:D
  11. Ugh I just realized I spelt road wrong.. oh well So, I posted back a while ago about turmeric and garlic helping acne. It surely did help. But, I am here again to sum up what I have done over the months where I spent over 100 dollars on different pills just to find the perfect regimen. My initial fear was the initial breakout from using facial products. So, I went through the "pill" route and tested a couple of different pills: vitamin a, d, e, c, b5, multivitamin, garlic, turmeric, bee-pol
  12. GUYS I FOUND MY CURE!!! So basically starting 2 weeks ago, I took vitamin E pills as well as garlic pills. After the first week, I noticed that my redness reduced A LOT. I was guessing that it was from vitamin E pills. Garlic pills seem to have made those little bumps on my face disappear as well as help with the redness. The past 2 days, I improved a lot. As a side note, I also drank at least 2 cups on water on a very large container. It DEFINITELY hydrated my skin and seemed to help the pills
  13. Well, I got the krill oil in the mail and after about 3-4 days of trying it, it actually seemed to irritate my redness. I noticed this because before I took it, I would look at the mirror to see mild redness. But after about an hour, my face turned moderately red. And also, it gave me 4 more pustules that does not seem like acne. As an update, I recently purchased garlic pills for my rosacea (or any other disease) and I read that it helps with redness because it contains sulfur and antifung
  14. Great news. After I stopped all of the supplements since yesterday and only taking turmeric with milk (I reduced my milk intake), my skin redness reduced and it is less swollen now. I only take turmeric at night but I am going to try to add it in the morning too. In a week, I will also be trying krill oil and see if it helps with my face. I guess, the simpler your regimen is, the better it is. I have learned from my mistakes in the past to NOT overdo anything on your face, just use a gentle clea
  15. OH. And one more thing. When you are out looking to buy products based on reviews, watch out! There are many companies that put up their own reviews just to make their product rating higher. I noticed this on amazon when half of the 5 star ratings were made by "new" users with only one review history for that particular product.
