  1. please please please stay away from dermatologists, they are nothing but trouble and their treatment medication they give you whether it be topical solutions or pills will only mask your acne problems. I havent had acne for a while now, mostly during my pubescent years however,I frequent here time to time to offer advice with what has benefited me in the past. I would recommend giving coconut oil a shot. Must be natural, virgin coconut oil, however if you try this, go easy on it and see how your
  2. Although there are some things that can help alleviate some symptoms...im under the belief that acne is most certaintly related to hormones and your acne wont start to drastically change until your hormones even out (anywhere from 18-25). Mu acne was at its worst when I was 17 and plenty of nice zits, im now 22 and acne free. And then your other choice to get rid of it is probably accutane however thats not even guaranteed
  3. 3 words, oil of oregano. Take internally. Give it atleast 2-3 weeks to see effects.
  4. when it comes down to it, i think everyone's body is different and it also heavily depends how you treat your popped pimple afterwards. I had moderate acne during my teen years,now im 21 and clear with no scarring issues or redness and I used to pop every pimple I had ever gotten. Afterwards I also used this very expensive healing lotion loaded with tons of natural extracts, coconut oil etc and the redness from the zit would be gone within a week. If it ever scabbed, the scab would generally fal
  5. we've all been there using those moisturizers, if you want a really good and cheap moisturizers,cleanser i would recommend thayers witch hazel. made with only natural ingredients, and it is very effective at keeping my skin smooth all day. It's a liquid so you need to have cotton pads to dab it on your face, but your skin really will thank you after a month of usage. You will probably notice that you dont even need to apply it as much anymore. Can't tell if this is good for acne because I stopp
  6. have u ever looked at whats in cetaphil....not even 1 plant extract, just pure chemicals except for water....Terrible skin product. How it even has any good reputation blows my mind
  7. God you guys have 10x the self esteem i do. I get upset whenever i get a single pimple my forehead every once and a while. I had moderate acne in my late teens as well so i can relate to not going out with friends and wanting to stay in at night. I am fully clear now after doing drastic changes to my lifestyle and eating habits. A couple things that come to mind that would probably help. Have you tried a high quality multivitamin before? Do you do supplementation ie. fish oil, antioxidants, imm
  8. sorry i cant help you there, i dont put that on my face, but I've heard good things. You shouldnt need to exfoliate with the product i posted. Just find an alkaline moisturizer and your skin can do the rest
  9. what do you think about using natural organic honey (i.e. straight from the beekeper) as a cleanser? Also, what type of diet is the best for a alkaline body? honey is great for topical use as for alkaline diet http://alkalinedietguy.com/
  10. Haven't made a thread here in a long time, dont suffer from acne as i used to in my teenage year (21 now). I get a couple little shoulder zits from working out but thats about it. Anyways enough about me, I'm here to drop some info for those that are interested and want to see some results in their skin complexion and texture. I would say one of the most important things to staying acne free for anyone has to be their body's and skin PH level. I can't stress how important this is especially if
  11. if you want to make your skin heal faster, feed it healthy thing. Fish oil, good multivitamin, apple cider vinegar etc. Whenever i get a zit, mine heal within 2 days, no redness left either. you are what you eat, and if you dont supply your skin with the necessary vitamins/minerals to heal, it could take ages for pimples to heal.
  12. salt water should really take down the swelling and a litle sun, I take plenty of supplements as well which drastically speeds up the healing phase for me whenever i get a zit, but I havent had one in since a month ago. lucky me
  13. green tea will have caffeine in it, that is the most likely cause of your breakouts.
  14. i am going to list for you the cheapest, must have supplements for acne multivitamin- the source naturals life force multiples multivitamin is probably the best valued multivitamin on the market. It was rated 4th out of 500 multivitamins on the market a couple years ago and still maintains its presence at the top of the list even today. It is cheap too (35$ for 3 months worth), with vitamins and minerals coming from highly bioavailable forms as well as benefitial extracts. Truly a staple in my
  15. im glad your acne has improved at such a substantial level, that must make you feel so much better out in public. However, taking that many antibiotics for so many years leads me to believe, that unless you were taking very good probiotic supplements during those years, you most certainly have a bad case of candida which is another big problem and can lead to further problems down the future such as some skin issues like tinea versicolor and other fungal/yeast overgrowths. As long as you stay on
