  1. I haven't updated in a long while because my skin has been really good. I've only ever had 2-3 small spots on my face at the same time at most. I've been so grateful for that and haven't had much to complain about. People have even complimented that my skin looks smooth etc. However, I notice that there's an increase in spots during my period... But now my period JUST ended and I see an increase which makes me scared, and that's why I decided to update here with what I also have changed for
  2. My skin actually has been pretty clear lately, even on my back. And I do the same things as in my last post, except that I've switched from using oat milk in my oatmeal etc. and instead I now use either soy or almond milk as they are lower in carbs and doesn't contain canola oil like oat milk does. I always thought I was allergic to them (soy/almond) but they seem to work pretty fine. However, this week I ate kefir a couple of days in a row, and I thought that would be okay since I have be
  3. Update: I completed the last part of the parasite cleanse about a month ago. Didn't follow it to a T though. My skin is still not clear, but since my last update I only have had around 1-2 spots on my face at the same which is a HUUUUUGE victory! I guess mixing my cleanser with 1 drop of tea tree oil has been very helpful though, because I still have had some acne on my upper back (and I don't use tea tree oil there). At this very moment my back is pretty clear though. I know my shower cr
  4. Update: About a month ago I went to a naturopath who told me I had parasites. I took anti-parasitic herbs once again (but a different supplement from the one I took earlier this year) for 14 days. Now I'm taking a break for 14 days and then I'll take it for 14 days again. I've also started mixing my cleanser with 1 drop of tea tree oil. I must say, my skin looks a lot better. Those tiny, tiny bumps I've had on my face for a really long time are reduced. My skin feels so much soft
  5. Two days ago my cheeks started to itch. I got really annoyed so I decided to abandon my "do nothing" technique and washed my face with some anti-dandruff shampoo. Then I mixed 3 drops of squalane oil and 1 drop of tea tree oil and applied it to the problem areas, then moisturizer on top. My face felt very soothed so this is my new routine for now. I'm also gonna try to be more mindful with what I eat. I eat healthy, and I choose healthy grains like quinoa, buckwheat, millet and oats... But
  6. Over my 5 years of having acne I realize that there's one thing I don't quite understand. I've always thought it has been hormonal (I'm 25 and female btw), but is acne really hormonal if you have it every single day... And not only before/during your period? I do EVERYTHING that's on the internet on "how to cure hormonal acne" in terms of nutrition and supplement, and nothing has worked...
  7. Time for an update... Since last week, I've gotten a lot of pimples/whiteheads on my cheeks... And even some one my forehead where I usually don't break out. It could be my new cleanser, it could be the niacinamide serum since those two are the main things I've changed. I am so tired with my skin atm. I feel like most other people find their solution. They may only have to cut out dairy and that's it. For 5 years I have been trying a bunch of stuff and nothing works to 100 %. The diet in
  8. Skin care routine atm: Morning: Spray with rose water, TO niacinamide + zinc, moisturizer, squalane oil Night: Cleansing with FA-safe cream cleanser, applying raw honey on face and letting it sit for at least 30 mins, wash away with cold-ish water, spray rosewater, niacinamide, moisturizer, squalane oil. Don't know if I should make any diet changes because I already eat pretty good. I've started taking a B-complex more regularly and I stopped taking zinc for a while. Skin
  9. It's been a while since I last posted... I've stopped using the ACV toner. My skin has gotten a bit more bumpy and it actually itches a bit. I started using MSM again a couple of weeks ago but not much improvement. I've also started taking zinc regularly... I did some googling and figured that it could be a damaged moisture barrier so now I'm not using any actives in my skincare routine and focusing on moisturizing a lot with Squalane oil.
  10. I also forgot to mention that I made my own ACV toner which I started using around 5 days ago, around the same time I started taking B5. And, since starting taking B5 and using the ACV toner... I've barely got any new acne at all. I've only noticed 3 TINY bumps. 2 of them are barely even red. I also got one on my back and one near the scalp on my neck which are both a little bit bigger than the ones on my face. But, this week I've been eating some dairy ice cream so that might explain it. I also
  11. I stopped using MSM at the end of May because I ran out of it and didn't buy any new. My skin has been pretty good despite that though. Even though I ate some sugar, dairy and gluten it still looked fine! It only got a bit worse right before my period but as soon as my period started it became good again. Since yesterday, I have started taking 500 mg of vitamin B5. I've heard so many great things about it and I haven't tried it so I really wanted to try it to get rid of the last bit of acne.
  12. Thought it might be time to update since my skin is pretty good now. What I have been doing since last time I updated here: I have NOT been consistent in avoiding gluten. I don't eat a lot of gluten at all, but I definitely don't avoid it completely. I also have been eating some dairy, but still, I don't eat a lot of dairy. My diet is still mainly whole foods plant based. However, I'm no longer eating bananas on the regular. Some days I have 0 bananas, and some days I have 1. It's easi
  13. I've started getting a little bit of more bumps again on my cheeks... I don't know if it's because I've started eating 2 bananas a day again to gain weight. I've also been eating some gluten. I'm gonna try to cut it down to 1 banana a day to begin with. Edit: I definitely think I'm gonna try my best to cut down on gluten as well, as I have noticed that my skin feels kind of itchy after eating it? It doesn't every time though so it might just be in my head. I don't know.
  14. I finished taking it a couple of weeks ago but now I'm breaking out a little bit again. I'm on my period though and I have been eating some junk and been anxious after finishing the cleanse lol... It was called ParaPro by Organic Olivia. But like, I was not feeling good mentally while taking it so that could also be why I still have some acne. It helped A LOT with my gut issues.
  15. 4th week after starting the supplement. I have some small bumps but it's really NOT a lot! My mom told me that it looks as if my skin is completely clear.
