  1. Hello everyone! First time posting in this forum because I need advice and suggestions! I've been a vegan for about a month now. Really, I stumbled upon it. After doing a lot of research trying to find a cure to my acne, I decided to give up dairy. Looking for dairy free recipes led to a lot of vegan recipes, so I just stopped eating meat too since it wasn't needed in these recipes. In about 2 weeks, I saw a huge improvement in my skin. Even to this day, I have not had a major breakout like I
  2. So I just finished my freshman year at university and I'm home for summer break. I've always suffered from acne, but it was always a few blemishes here and there or a patch of blackheads on my nose. I was on a regimen about two years ago where I took antibiotics and used a medicated topical wash and moisturizer. It made my skin look great and my dermatologist said that I was free to use whatever face wash that I wished as long as it was oil controlling and that my moisturizer was non comedogenic
  3. Hi, I have suffered from moderate to severe acne since I was about 16 and am now 21. I have taken doxycycline pills, benzoyl peroxide cream (which I still use on occasion- I am unsure whether it actually helps or is irritating and drying out my skin too much) and now take anti-androgens. I have taken antidepressants for about a year until recently as well. Since January, I have pretty much eliminated dairy products from my diet as I've heard multiple times that it is good for acne. My skin h
  4. Hey guys, I just wanted to talk about how my diet has helped me get clearer skin. I've suffered from cystic acne for quite a while now and have barely started to control it. After trying many acne creams, washes, and masks, I realized that the only thing left for me was to either go on Accutane or fix my diet. Long story short, I became vegan and started to see my acne clear up immensely! I no longer get huge cystic pimples like I did before and my skin is better than it has ever been. My acne i
  5. So after suffering from an extremely severe bout of cystic acne (caused by stopping topical antibiotic lotion) at the end of 2016, I decided to give the dairy-free diet a go. I cut out all dairy from my diet, all of it. No milk, no cheese, no cream, no butter, no chocolate, none of it. Used to have cheese sandwiches quite a bit and a chocolate bar nearly every day - gave it all up. I've been dairy free for over six months now and to be completely honest, I don't really see much difference to wh
  6. Hey guys, I'm new to this website but I was hoping to get some feedback regarding gluten-free/dairy-free diets. A little background about me: Skip to the end if you're not interested in hearing my long, boring acne story! I'm twenty years old and up until seven to eight months ago I had never struggled with acne. I always took very good care of my skin (which tends to be on the drier side) and neither of my parents struggled with acne growing up so I never imagined that I would be going throu
  7. Hi all, really sorry if this post has been done before. I've done so much research on this, spent hours on these forums for help/hope/advice but I decided it would be best if I just started a thread so I could maybe get some direct help. Basically for the past year and a half, almost two years, I've had a very stubborn bunch of closed comedones on my chin. It's sort of like a red blotch, until I smile or stretch the skin and it gets redder and you can see loads of small white granules - embe

  9. I had one of those horrible, crushing mornings. I tried styling my hair 3-4 different ways. I tried on different tops, bottoms, scarves and shoes, but no item of clothing did anything to relieve me of the shame and sense of vulnerability (like being naked, ironically) that my bad skin gives me. I stopped, looked in the mirror and started sobbing. Of course, the tears streaming down my face smudged my makeup. I have hormonal cystic acne along my jaw, lower cheeks and chin. Despite my best effor
  10. Hi All, So i'm back on here after 7-8 years. I'm on here to share my story and what's worked for me. Background: So I first started getting spots at 15 and was diagnosed with acne at 16 by my doctor. What did my doctor recommend? Leave it alone, just wash your face twice a day and it will go away. I was naive and listened to him. Big mistake. I didn't do any research on acne prior to my visit and hoped my acne will go away as my doctor had said. But it didn't. I suffered acne pretty bad duri
  11. I made a promise to myself, that when I first starting taking prescription medicine for my acne that if and when my skin got clear, I would post my success story. When I first started developing acne I was 20, that time in your life when you're supposed to grow out of that pimply stage and look like an adult. It was terrible, embarassing, mortifying, and mentally and physically painful. After I started seeing a dermatologist, I scoured the internet looking for people taking similar medications a
