  1. I did, I was plant based for 8 years. I was just vegetarian for 7 years of that, the result was absolutely zero change in my skin at all, then I went vegan and that's when I noticed real change, in that my skin got at least 10x worse. There is absolutely no logical reason as to why plant based diets would be good for your skin, vegan diets in particular are nutritionally inferior to every other diet.

    This stuff is discontinued, but I have been using the same 40ml tube for about 6+ years as a spot/redness concealer and it is a miracle worker. I'm a guy and only use it sparingly on individual red areas, I still have over half the tube left, it's totally invisible and blends 100% naturally with my skin.
  3. There's actually a very clear scientific reason, coconut oil has the highest percentage of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) of any oil, and what do the p.acnes bacteria feed on? MCTs. Coconut is the number one thing I must avoid or severely limit to stay clear. It's at the very top of my evil list and by some distance. But I think it's all down to what causes your acne. I have self-diagnosed and know 100% that my acne is caused by gut permeability and malabsorption. So when I consume MCT oi
  4. Sure... Vitamin D - http://www.iherb.com/Healthy-Origins-Vitamin-D3-5-000-IU-120-Softgels/18341 Vitamin A - http://www.iherb.com/Nature-s-Way-Vitamin-A-10-000-IU-100-Softgels/1886 Magnesium - http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Magnesium-Citrate-120-Vcaps/698 The zinc I use is a brand I bought in Thailand, zinc gluconate. I have recently ordered this K2 - http://www.iherb.com/Jarrow-Formulas-MK-7-Vitamin-K2-as-MK-7-90-mcg-60-Softgels/256 This different Vitamin A - http://www.iherb.com/Ca
  5. I still use the BP soap, but once this bar is done I most likely won't buy a new one, I don't think I need it now. And I pretty much don't apply BP gel/cream any more, maybe once a week or so as I have it here and want to use it up. An initial breakout with vitamin A is possible, but give it a couple of weeks to gauge how it's working, it really has been a miracle for me.
  6. Vitamin A 'cured' my acne, accutane is just a vitamin A derivative. Try this daily regimen... Vitamin A - 10,000 to 20,000iu Vitamin D3 - 5,000iu Magnesium Citrate - 500mg Zinc Gluconate - 30mg You could also add vitamin k2. I'm fairly confident this regimen will 'cure' your acne.
  7. Have you noticed increased anxiety since taking vitamin D3? Vitamin D3 should ALWAYS be taken with magnesium, because your body uses up a lot of magnesium to convert D3 into its usable form. Common side effects of depleted magnesium are poor sleep, constipation and anxiety. Other vitamin D3 cofactors are zinc, K, and A. Here's what I recommend, and I'm pretty certain you'll be very happy with the results... Upon waking: Vitamin D3, 5000iu Vitamin A, 10,000iu (from fish, NOT beta carotene)
  8. I didn't get an initial breakout, and I think the type of magnesium and zinc you take is important, in my nighttime vitamins I mention the types. Vitamin d3 is important, but for sure the turning point for me was vitamin A. My back broke out again but it was due to letting sweat dry in on my body, I live in the tropics and for a few days in a row my back was getting soaked with sweat and was drying in before I could shower, once I stopped that happening my back healed again really quickly.
  9. Just thought I would leave an update, I added zinc to my regimen, didn't notice a great deal, then I added vitamin A, WOW, it's been two weeks and my skin is looking great, it seems like I've finally found MY 'cure' after 20 years, here's what I take... Morning: Vitamin D3 - 5,000iu Vitamin A - 10,000iu (fish liver oil based) Vitamin C - 500mg Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc - 1000mg/400mg/25mg (single multi pill) Night: Magnesium Citrate - 400mg Zinc Gluconate - 25mg Vitamin C - 500mg And last week
  10. Some improvement, but certainly not a cure for me, I'm going to add zinc starting today. Starting the magnesium instantly relieved my anxiety though, and the constipation I was experiencing since starting D3, also I sleep better.
  11. Head and shoulders classic is indeed pretty good for body acne. Have you tried supplementing with vitamin d3? Take 1000iu of vitamin d3 per 25lbs of body weight. Take every morning when you wake up. If it works for you, within a week you should start to notice no new or dramatically less new active pimples, and a massive calming or complete end to inflammation and an acceleration of healing. If you start taking d3 and you notice any anxiety, muscle twitches, or more difficulty having a bowe
  12. Crazy cycle, and for someone so light too. Those orals were run for far too long.
  13. Have you tried a benzoyl peroxide soap and/or a zinc soap (head and shoulders for men is good anti-acne body soap)? Using those soaps and also exfoliating your back well should help, exfoliating helped with my body acne, while in the shower, I would get a small towel and soak in in the hot water, then put it over the top of my back holding the towel at each end pulling it tight against my back, then scrape the towel across my entire back. I would do that several times, making sure every
  14. All I can see is what looks like hypopigmented scars. They gradually fade over many many years but from what I know, there isn't an awful lot of particularly effective methods of getting rid of them. Derma rolling and ginger juice might help. There could be laser techniques I'm not aware of that work, I'm not certain of that though.
  15. I stopped all supplements and vitamins almost exactly a year ago. I manage acne by applying 2.5% BP every few days and also washing every day with 10% BP soap. This keeps my face clear. The 10% BP soap mostly keeps my body clear too, but not completely, and recently, my chest starting to break out a lot. So a week ago, being pretty certain that I have some degree of vitamin D deficiency, I started taking 5000iu per day. Within days the inflammation on my chest stopped completely
