  1. Hello everyone and anyone reading this. So this is a 5 year update since getting on accutane. I dont breakout at all now. The only time I get pimples is when I eat dairy and when I drink orange juice or eat oranges. I think I finally found out why I used to break out so much in my teens. I used to eat a lot of dairy food and drink acidic stuff like orange juice a lot. Ive read a lot on this and a lot of other people broke out because of dairy and when they stopped eating it they stopped breaking
  2. What Is the pH of Human Skin?

    The term "pH" refers to a scale used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of something. The scale assigns each substance a pH value between and 14 units, with a "neutral" pH being 7. The lower the pH value, the more acidic the substance is. Conversely, the higher the pH value, the more basic--or "alkaline"--the substance is. Substances with pH values under 7 are considered acidic, while those with pH values above 7 are considered...
  3. Soaps or Cleansers: Which Is Better for Acne-prone Skin?

    To effectively remove dirt, sweat, and excess skin oil (sebum) when you wash your skin, you need to use either soap or a cleanser. Washing the skin is important because it removes these things from the surface of your skin and allows acne medications to penetrate into the skin. Unfortunately, some soaps and cleansers can irritate your skin, and when it comes to caring for acne-prone skin, reducing irritation crucial. Since cleansers tend to be less...
  4. I posted this somewhere else too but figured I should add this to my pre-accutane updates. The bumps on my face have been bugging me SO much! So I read that vinegar can be helpful with folliculitis and other noninflamed acne and I also saw a lot of posts about baking soda and apple cider vinegar on your face. Decided to give it a go. After 2 days I'm seeing the bumps go WAY down and some that weren't budging for what felt like ages have finally come to a head. I simply added some ba
  5. I have had a small patch of folliculitis on the back of my neck for about 18 months now. My doctor put me on several antibiotic creams and then pills. Neither worked, so he said the only resort was to take Accutane. I hate ingesting harsh drugs and keep hearing that one should avoid Accutane at all costs, so i have tried everything from coconut oil (did nothing) to tea tree oil (helps some) to see if i can discover a natural cure/magic bullet. So, my best friend, years ago had a back acne sit
  6. Does Washing the Skin Help or Hurt Acne?

    Acne is a complex disease that is caused by a variety of factors, including hormones, chronic inflammation, excess skin oil production, overgrowth of skin cells, and bacteria growth. Washing the skin is unlikely to clear acne on its own, but research shows that as long as you wash gently with a non-irritating cleanser, it may help. Avoid Irritation to Avoid Acne It is well understood that irritation of the skin can lead to more acne. When it...
  7. Looking for an internal treatment similar to apple cider vinegar. I've been taking 2 - 3 tablespoons a day and it has been working really well in combination with cutting out caffeine, dairy, and drinking detox tea. I am worried about the effect it has on the esophagus, body ph level, and my teeth. Are there similar treatments to apple cider vinegar without all the negative side effects?
