  1. Well.. I wash my face with a cleanser every 3 days, but I put on two products daily. One being sunscreen, and the other being a repair cream. Honestly, what helped me clear my skin is eating very clean and hitting the gym almost daily. I guess I can't say if the "caveman regimen" works or not since I haven't actually done it, just something close, but good luck!
  2. Learn how to have some confidence.. You're telling all this to people on an acne forum, who most likely have acne lol. If this is a legit post, put up some pictures so we can see where you're at
  3. Mainly affecting temple area? If that's all then I don't think you should go on accutane.. Mild like @Antonthegreat said
  4. i'm sensitive to: Almonds Coconut Filbert/Hazelnut String Green Beans Lima Beans Green English Peas Peanuts Soybeans Celery Histamine Buckwheat Corn Rice I'm good with grains. I tested good to eat Oats, Wheat, and Rye. I eat oats and wheat every day, and I stay clear as long as I avoid the intolerances. And I'm Not sensitive to: Oats, Rye,Whole Wheat, Poppy Seed, Apple, Orange, Peach, Tomato, Brazil Nut, Cashew Nut, Kidney-Pinto Beans, Carrots, Saline I'm Barely sensi
  5. Funny because I'll be writing a book/novel in the future and I'll be relaying the struggles I had to undergo with acne as certain messages throughout the book. Such as my mental state, feeling pain and whatnot, but to story form that has nothing to do with acne in itself
  6. Well.. What I have been doing is keeping a log on a daily basis ever since the middle of last year or so with not only every single foods I ate, but with how my body feels and reacts to it. 1) For me, I can tell when a bump or a breakout is on it's way shortly after eating. In fact, I've gotten bumps as I was eating certain foods on my face. I know it sounds crazy and I know many, MANY people think it's coincidence, but it's not. Well, at least for me. How do I know? Because I've tested it on m

  8. Ah.. I'm sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you. It's not as detailed as I was hoping but I don't want to be nitpicking here lol. not like I'm a doctor or anything either, just some guy that found something that works for him (for now I suppose). Well okay, I wish you the best on your journey to clear skin and truly hope you find something that works for you in the near future.
  9. Your suspicion on your cause of acne sounds similar to mine, except I think I had very poor bowel movements as well. Good luck Kate! Please do keep us posted I'm interested to see if such similar diet would work for others.
  10. Could you tell us what "crazy" elimination diets you have tried? I know that diet alone will probably not help every single person with acne out, but I do believe that it helps everyone with acne up to a certain extent. I personally cleared my skin through very strict diet and discipline alone. I was never able to go to a dermatologist, naturopath, etc. for a prescription, let alone a checkup due to some circumstances and not having insurance. I'm not saying diet will be all it takes but I'm re
  11. lol @Melloman what are you sensitive to? I think I'm in the same boat as you in terms of acne breakouts due to food sensitivity, but I haven't visited a Naturopath/doctor yet.. Just been doing it on my own and seems like I found the foods I needed to eliminate. In terms of fiber, I just get em from fruits and veggies since I cut out ALL forms of grains.. Are you okay with grains?
  12. There's a diet I started a little over a month ago in an attempt to resolve my skin issues. After many test & trials, I do have something that's working quite well for me. I am a firm believer that a strict diet can immensely help acne.. Especially certain moderate-severe cases which I believe I was under the category of. Anyway.. One of my co-workers know of the diet I'm doing and he brought a diet called "Whole30" to my attention. Turns out there's an actual term for the diet I've been do
  13. I can understand you. Actually, when I'm eating foods I shouldn't be eating, my face would get a bit itchy and I just feel my face not reacting well. I don't really have a breakout though. Well, depends how much I eat. I usually do get a bump or two within the hour of having ate food I'm sensitive to. Maybe I should try going to a naturopath.. I've just been doing my own testings and took out food after test & trial
  14. That is hard, I can definitely relate. It wasn't for a luxury hotel, but I had to work at the front desk and was the "face of the office". Thing is, I endured it to find my own solution rather than jumping on accutane. I understand that accutane is probably the quickest solution, but I honestly think it's temporary, even if that's years. I know it's frustrating, and it definitely hits your self-esteem when you know that people will be looking at your face, trying to maintain eye contact.. BUT..
  15. Yeah I personally wouldn't even go near that, but it's up to you. Never heard of it either
