  1. Congratulations on whatever helped you! :) I drink coffee every morning with no negative effects. At the age of 35 my acne went away, and I think I just finally outgrew it, because 22 years of trying everything did nothing to help it, then it just went away and hasn't come back. I'm almost 38 now. I do think that exfoliating helps to keep dead skin out and other junk out of the pores.
  2. I hate it when you spend all of your years from the age of 13 to 36 fighting acne and its physical and psychological scarring to have it go away just in time for old age wrinkles, larger pores, and eye bags!!! Yay!!! Pbbt.
  3. Hi drat, A couple of years ago when I had moderate acne I went vegan for about 9 months just for the heck of it, and I noticed an improvement in my skin tone and somewhat with my acne. Some people here have mentioned cutting out sugar as a solution too. I cut soda and a LOT of sugar (white sugar and corn syrup, I mean, not natural fruit sugar) and that seems to have made a bigger positive difference in my overall skin health. There are others who will say they've tried both with no luck.
  4. I had luck with 10% glycolic acid cream. I bought it to exfoliate my face, but I also notice a dramatically better appearance in my pores. I use Reviva brand and got it at Whole Foods. Some people suggest starting with a 5% concentration if you have sensitive skin, but I went gung ho and dove right into 10% with no problem.
  5. Still acne free with the glycolic acid. I've not been consistent with the omega's lately --- just busy and not making time to work it into my food.
  6. Ah, that's a good question to ask! I only had blackheads on my nose, and the rest was inflamed acne. Even small pimples would stay on my face forever.
  7. Thanks for the link, JayQ. It looks like the same stuff I'm using. I think it should at least help with your red marks.
  8. I'm still 100% clear. I hope someone else tried glycolic acid and gets results from it. I do think cutting down drastically on sugar could be playing a part too, but who knows? I don't want to eat a bunch of sugar just to see if I break out again . I just know that between the ages of 13 and 37 (now) I've tried every over the counter and homemade remedy in the world, plus some mild dermatological prescriptions, and this is the first time I've had clear skin since puberty. And I don't thin

  10. Just curious, why don't vegetarians need to take fish oil? I don't eat red meat and have been thinking about taking fish oil capsules.... It's not that I don't need fish oil, but I'm vegetarian in the sense that I don't eat animals, including fish. So basically we could just use the AHA as an applicator or moisturizer everynight right? I put the 10% glycolic acid on my face every night before bed, and sometimes moisturizer on top of it, but not always.

  12. Congratulations on your success with the lotion! I never thought anything would get rid of my blackheads but the glycolic acid did it. Nothing can stand up to that stuff!!! ha I think at the very least, it's healthy for you, even if it does nothing for your skin. I hope you get some results from it.
  13. I'm reluctant to say that my acne is gone forever, since that may jink me ... I've never tried Mandelic Acid. I hope you see some good results from it soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I'm not sure what role, if any, the omegas are playing for me, but I need them anyway because I'm vegetarian.

    Sugar

    I believe it made a positive difference for me, and at the very least, it's just healthier all around to cut down on sugar intake. I'm glad it's working for you!
  15. Update: Still 100% free of acne FYI: I have been faithfully using the 10% glycolic acid nightly, have been putting the fatty acid hemp powder in my food almost daily, and have had a little bit of sugary junk food this month, but not much.
