  1. Acne is the most common disease of Western civilization, and it has evolved to an epidemic affecting more than 85% of adolescents and 50% of adults. Acne is virtually absent in non-Westernized countries that do not consume cow's milk and dairy products...Imagine that - entire populations that have never experienced acne Acne is now more seriously being regarded as a disease caused by exaggerated production and activity of insulin within the body.
  2. If you haven't heard of of the 'Caveman regimen, you're not stuck in the dark ages. It's yet another half-baked idea at to eliminate acne What they mean by "caveman" is keep your face dirty... don't wash it... don't use chemicals... just let it be. You know what cavemen did before cleansers and before acne Now, I couldn't agree more with this theory. After all cleansers and a most other acne products destroy your skin's microbiome which can make acne worse. Once you mess with you
  3. Our mothers always tell us not to eat so much nuts if we want to avoid an acne outbreak. Although we often comply with what our moms say, we often think to ourselves if any of these old wives' tales are actually true. Well, the truth is that studies have shown that there is very little correlation between acne outbreak and nut consumption. We speak to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah from Radium Medical Aesthetics as he tells us more about how acne is formed and if nuts really cause acne outbreak. Wh
  4. This persistent condition is more than skin deep. It can leave not only physical, but also emotional scars, and that’s why it’s particularly hard to deal with it. Acne is one of the most common dermatological issues, and according to some estimates, as much as 85% of the population suffers from it at some point in their lives. It’s characterized by greasy skin covered in pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Many adolescents have to deal with sudden acne outbreaks, which are mainly triggered
  5. Hi, I am 15 years old and suffer from acne. I have started my skincare routine which is made up of African black soap, a pore unclogging face scrub that contains sacrylic acid, a toner, and a moisturizer which is just cocoa butter. after these products, i apply benzoyl peroxide and go to sleep. I am on day 3 of this routine and am noticing my skin is very very dry throughout the day. I lather lotion and it dries up 20 minutes later. I'm experiencing a lot of skin flaking, occasional burning, and
  6. Those of us revisiting this thread once again for answers, for a product that works, for another human to relate, we all have one thing in common. We suffer daily, or once monthly, or for the lucky ones once a year. Regardless of the frequency or intensity of your breakouts we all know how painful and embarrassing this condition can be. The thing is when you make the choice to go out the door in the morning and face the day, you have just made a very important choice whether you realize it
  7. hi so last week i made a change in my routine and started taking vitamin d3. a couple days later i started drinking a tablespoon of acv with a cup of water on a daily basis. my skin was clearing for all of last week. however this week, i have gotten pimples plus pimples on weird places i never get pimples like my eyebrows and chin. could drinking the ACV cause me to break out? i believe that’s what it is since i read people break out after a week of drinking it. i don’t think it’s vitamin d b
  8. Hi can u recommend which skin care product well to acnes skin? Like toner moisturizer and etc. Maybe it will helpful to treat my acnes and maybe my scars. Thank you
  9. Hello I had an acne problem when I was in elementary school till now I am in college. Few months ago my cheeks had so many acnes. I think it would be okay and it will be gone like my usually acne. But no and my acnes left so many black scars. I was so frustrated. People always treat me like I destroyed my face self or they bullied me. I already had so many acne treatments. From natural until medication. 1 month ago I tried benzolac 2.5 and I think it didn't work on my acne. Should I try benzolac
  10. Hello I am writing a research paper regarding Roaccutane for a nursing degree and was hoping I could get some data! As an acne sufferer I have always pondered going on Roaccutane but have never filled my prescription... It would be much appreciated if anyone who has taken Roaccutane before could answer 10 questions regarding their experience on the medication. The main answers I'm looking for are if you were happy with your results and if you noticed side effects.https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/X

    I wasn't going to post these pictures because it's embarrassing to see just how bad my skin used to be!!! However, I figured someone could benefit from my struggle. I've struggled with acne for the last 10 years. I've tried changing my diet, prescription meds, Proactiv, Murad, Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, all-natural face washes, masks, scrubs, etc. YOU NAME IT, I'VE TRIED IT!!!! I even tried to cover it with makeup. But no matter how much concealer you use, there's just no covering a bumpy su
  12. So I've been using Dan's BP for a little over a year now. It's been the best thing for my acne that I've ever tried - but recently, after a year of clear skin, I've been experiencing minor spots and other types of minor acne. It's not that noticeable and for the most part my skin is clear, but what's disturbing is that they keep coming back. Here's the type of acne that I'm getting right now (it's different from when I first started the regimen) SPOTS: Reddish pink spots that are typically und
  13. Can i use a 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment and a 2% salicylic acid treatment during the night while using a Chamomile & Aloe Vera Cleansing bar (soap) and a 10% sulfur ointment during the morning? 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment & the 2% salicylic acid treatment are both equate beauty products. Chamomile & Aloe Vera Cleansing bar is a La Bella product. 10% sulfur ointment is a De La Cruz product.
  14. I am a female teen and have been using the acne.org regimen for a little over 5 months. Up until the last month it worked as it said it would, I was completely clear. However, within the last month the benzoyl peroxide has caused extreme redness, dryness and itchiness. I did not change anything, that I am aware of. Because of the extreme discomfort of the benzoyl peroxide, I took a break for about a week. I started using a natural regimen recommended by a women with much knowledge in natural
  15. So I've been on monodox for 4 months now and it's just not working. It's gotten a little bit better but I still always have at least 3 cysts on my face (it used to be like 6) My derm has been telling me that he has to start easing me off of it and it should've been working by now so he switched me down to a lower dosage even though the cysts hadn't stopped and now I have like 8. They definitely get worse around the time of my period but I still have them at other times of the month. I was readin
  16. I've noticed in a lot of milk alternatives such as coconut milk, and a lot of gluten free products Xanthan Gum is listed as an ingedrient...This worries me as I've changed my diet to help combat acne, I've been attempting to research it in realation to acne but havent come across anything? Does anyone know any thing further about xanthan gum and acne?
  17. Hey there guys. I am going to order The Regimen today, priority mail. Those that have used this in the past, I was wondering if it helps with acne scars? And if not, is there something that you would recommend that works? I have some scars on my back that I would like to get rid off. No more acne just the scars left. Please help, thanks for viewing!
  18. This classic treatment is probably one of the most famous acne remedies that you can try. This is for two reasons. First, it works. Second, it’s inexpensive and you can do it in less than 5 minutes. For years, people have been spot treating with toothpaste to help get rid of acne. There are some things to remember though when you decide to treat your acne with toothpaste. Toothpaste is most effective when spot treating. This means, it should be used on isolated pimples. If you get a big, painfu
  19. Please any help would be massively appreciated. I normally have around five zits total on my face on an average day but a couple days ago (and yes, it was right at the start of my period), a complete onslaught of zits occurred. They're all tiny and painful, but I'm not kidding, there's over a hundred and they're all bunched together. Most of them are on my cheeks and jaw, some on my chin, and a few on my forehead. First off, I don't know why this happened. I'm 22 years old and I have never h
  20. Hi everyone!!!! I'm conducting a survey into how acne is perceived and the beliefs surrounding treatment for it. The results will go towards enabling those with acne to have an easier time when selecting an effective treatment for it. There is a bit more information about the survey below: Although neither life-threatening nor physically debilitating, acne can severely affect social and psychological functioning. Patients with acne often show anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem, report
  21. Well, this is the clearest I've been in a long time! Vitastem ointment has been fading my red marks, and I have no new cysts on the treatment areas! (I did get a new cyst in my back, which was not somewhere I was treating with Vitastem - so there is obviously something systemic going on that I still need to address. I'm spot treating that cyst with Vitastem ointment to make it go away faster). If you've got stubborn acne I'd definitely recommend giving this product a try! This is a prescription

  23. Benzoyl Peroxide is one of the common ingredients used to treat acne. You can find this active ingredient in the form of a cream, gel, lotion, facemask, or cleansing bar. Benzoyl Peroxide is very effective in treating mild cases of acne. This acne treatment drug is available in non-prescription form for concentrations of 2.5%, 5% and 10%. If you are looking for concentrations higher than 10%, you need a doctor’s prescription. Several studies have shown that 2.5% benzoyl peroxide is equal
  24. Hi! First of all HELLO - I'm new to this forum Recently I was checking on some acne treatments which aren't available in drug stores. I came across some interesting curology reviews - that one is with some treatment progress photos. All the reviews are really promising but I don't trust them for 100%. I don't know anyone in real life who used it. Does anyone of you know this brand/treatment and can say something about experience? all the best
  25. Acne has been a huge struggle of mine for so many years. I've been ant-medication for seven years and I finally couldn't take it anymore. I tried antibiotics (doxycycline) which luckily for me would work for a few months. Every time I cleared up and stopped taking antibiotics my acne would come right back! If you are currently struggling I feel your pain. People on reddit and YouTube have helped me with my confidence and pain. We must all support each other because users in this thread all have
