  1. I used to be able to eat walnuts and eggs and not breakout. I haven't had them in awhile and now eating them I'm breaking out. The question is will I continue to break out if I eat them or does my body have to get use to it again.
  2. What kind of acne did you have? Where was it on your face? Do you have any pics?
  3. I want to try spearmint tea but I've never seen any. Is it widely available? Where can I get it from? I've also heard that dandelion root tea is supposed to be good for acne.
  4. No one can really know to be honest. Is it helping you? If you can get it from food it is more ideal and it would be absorbed better and also have the companion nutrients.
  5. I've eliminated so many things that I can barely eat anything anymore. Right now I'm at a point where I can't even enjoy food and I'm so sick of everything I have to eat. I've seriously have had enough! I feel like my skin may have actually suffered from such a restrictive, low calorie diet. I know for sure I am not eating enough. On top of that, the restrictions are so stressful. At the same time, I feel like if I don't do something, then I will blame myself for the acne and the sca
  6. Despair. I long to feel what it feels like to have clear beautiful skin. To be able to go anywhere and to not be stopped from your face. How easy is it for those without skin problems?
  7. Did the supplements help a lot? Or was quitting the dairy, gluten etc enough?
  8. I don't know if I have hormonal acne. I usually will breakout when I eat certain foods, but I still have blackheads/whiteheads/closed comedones. I haven't noticed worse acne around my period, but last month, I ate bad food and also took thyroid meds and then quit them and the acne came about a week before my period. Otherwise, I never noticed breaking out at that time of the month. I am very afraid of taking this drug, but this acne is also just killing me. I'm 27 and don't know what to do a
  9. I don't really believe in all this topical stuff.
  10. What source of omega 3 is it? Also, does certain foods break you out? What type of acne did you have?
  11. What helps me stay clearer: no dairy except fermented dairy, no breads/grains, no processed sugar. Everything else is usually fine. I eat fruit like crazy, doesn't break me out. Also, exercise helps. We're all different though. That keeps me sort of clear, meaning I still have shit skin but no cysts. Im 27, my mind is definitely gone. I'm basically a hermit.
  12. For example, the known triggers, dairy and sugar. I dont know know if I have hormonal acne. I have cystic acne on my neck and jawline that comes mostly from eating specific foods. I also get raised white bumps that are filled with white gunk that sometimes get inflamed and lead to a bigger cyst. I dont get acne before my period.
