  1. I'm interested in the effects of B5 on acne, however, I have a question that I hope someone on here could address. I've noticed that the mild acne I get now is mainly due to high stress levels (school, work, family, etc.) Would B5 help me? Generally, when I'm relaxed, I don't get breakouts. I follow a strict diet of no dairy/sugar/greasy foods and I use Proactiv twice a day. Also, the areas that I get acne (chin) aren't particularly oily, in fact, they are dry because of the Proactiv. Woul
  2. If you're lactose intolerant (like I am), I simply avoid foods that may contain it. The last thing in the world that I want is more zits, so I'll just avoid it altogether to be safe.
  3. This thread is absurd. What's next, breathing = acne?
  4. I'm going to have to agree with MG86. Thing is, I don't drink milk or use any supplements such as whey or creatine. I think I'm different from DeAntonio, hardcore lifting definitely makes me breakout. At this point, I don't work out and I eat a strict diet. It involves eating a lot of "healthy fast food" that basically isn't 1) fried 2) contains no gluten 3) no dairy. I'm almost 100% clear at this point. Thanks for the advice everyone.
  5. So what you're saying is, I have two options: Being scrawny with clear skin or buff with pimply skin? Wow, this sucks ass.
  6. LINK I noticed last year there was a pattern to my breakouts. I would have no break outs between wednesday-friday, then around sunday-tuesday my skin looked its WORSE. I would work out primarily on weekends so I started to notice a connection. I think what the author describes in the article was leading to me getting some breakouts. Granted, I have acne prone skin, cutting weight lifting seems to help in me staying clear. What do you guys think of this?
  7. Yes, people are affected in different ways than others. This explains why theres no cleanser out there that works 100% effectively with all of us. We all have different types of skin. But like I said, it was too much of a coincidence that I was getting lots of white heads (often times in places I didn't get acne before) when I worked out excessively. I never changed my diet, had the same sleeping pattern, took the same supplements, same amounts of stress. The only factor was the weightlifti
  8. No, definitely not lol. The thing is, if I eat dairy, any kind at all, I get BIG pimples. That acne picture I took was taken less than 2 months ago. I still get pimples if I'm not careful. I've learned to control them but I have the potential of getting lots of acne.
  9. As I sit here typing this topic, this is what my skin looks like: http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc81/dsmith123123/13.jpg I have pretty much no pimples, just some red spots from an outbreak about 2 weeks ago. Anyways, the reason why I'm making this topic was because I went to the bank earlier today and saw someone who worked there with severe acne. I could see in his face that he was extremely depressed. I felt his pain because I've experienced the same exact feeling before, so I'm writ
  10. I heard fish has a lot of Iodine and I believe a lot of iodine causes acne. I don't think fish oil will give you acne though.
  11. Chances are your mom already knows you are depressed because of your acne. Parents know these kinds of things, they have raised you for many years. I know my parents know when I'm agitated or angry because of acne, they can SEE it physically and mentally. Unless of course your mom has the IQ of a chimp.
  12. I don't know why everyone hates Proactiv on this forum. It works well for me, as long as I don't use it too often. I use it 1-2 times a day and it works.
