    Gaps For Acne

    Hi All, My names Ash, Well for the last 10 years or so I have suffered from Acne. In my opinion it totally ruined my teenage years. I am 26 now and committed to find a permanent solution to Acne. Like everyone else, I have tried.... EVERYTHING including the infamous "Accutane" aka "Roaccutane". All of these things only ever fixed the issue temporarily, my acne always returned. After extensive research online, I came across a research that indicated allot skin conditions and mental condi
  3. I just wanted to update anyone interested in holistic methods for acne what I have been doing recently. I learned about Arachidonic Acid (AA) which is highly inflammatory and what Omega 6 is converted to in the body. AA metabolizes into all the inflammatory compounds; especially leukotrienes and prostaglandins. I learned that you need to redirect how your body deals with PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA's) towards the anti-inflammatory compounds. I realize that there is a balance. We already kn

    Worst Breakout Ever

    Hi guys. I'm a 16 years old teenage girl experiencing the worst breakout of my life. I've had acne since 7th grade grade. It's been pretty manageable. Occasionally got one or two cysts before period. This month during my period, entire face brokeout. Got 6 cysts on forehead. Left cheek is a a complete mess. I've been off dairy and sugar for the past two years. Been a vegetarian since I was 4. I thought it was because of stress. It's been a week and my face was healing. Yesterday I broke out aga
  5. Firstly I would just like to say hello and thank you for all the information I have picked up here over the past few months. During this time I have grown increasingly conscious and irritated by my bacne and so began scouring the web for solutions. Most of these were quick fixes for people who have a zit the day before prom and are 'freaking out', but then I found this place. It has helped reading the numerous pieces of information dotted around throughout the forum and thanks to the fact that t
  6. I have been getting acne since I was 14. It has been around 8 years now, I am getting struggling with acne. Now, I am sharing how I manage my acne naturally and holistically, my face is getting better from before I changed my lifestyle. I will make points to get better ideas how I solve my acne problem. And I am getting my face much better now. Before 8 started to learn what causing acne, and learn holistic and natural ways of treating acne. I had been tried all stuff and any creams, acne sca
  7. First off, the reason Im asking this question is because I want to gain weight. I am 107 puonds right now as a 17 year old male. i want to be at least 115. I tried gaining weight with olive oil and I broke out pretty bad. I was having like 4 tablespoons EVERY DAY for about 3 weeks, not knowing it has quite a bit of omega 6. So olive oil is out of the question, the only other way is carbs i guess. But I know that lots of carbs are bad. Sooo i was just wondering my diet is in the low to moder
  8. I just wanted to say this... I have been doing a healthy fruit-vegetable with the acception of white meats, etc. No junk foods, fried foods, diary, and sugars of course. Well i've been doing it for about 2 months now, and all the current acne is gone after 1 month.. And my red marks started to diminish as well.. BUT, my stubborn ass figured i'd try eating something different last night, so i ordered 1 dominoz sandwich lol, i couldn't resist it, i thought my acne and red marks were unde
  9. Hi there, I've been lurking these forums for a little while now and I see a lot of people claiming a change of diet was the one cure for their acne. What information I can find about the diet/acne connection is limited and inconclusive and it makes me skeptical. I want to try it but I don't know where to start. What I do know is that I get enough sleep (most of the time, but I'm working on it), I wash and moisturize morning and night and exfoliate every few days (I might stop, it may be irritati

    Day 1

    Day 1. 9:00 Washed with Proactive added pure aloe gel or scabs along with Simple 24 hr day/night cream. Skin on forehead so oily by 1:00 Thinking about somehow adding more BP to the proactive cream. I like the way the system works and it suppresses around 80% of it but it doesn't stop my face from getting oily and it doesn't keep the CC away. Food: Breakfast Vegan pancakes (banana, Egg, vanilla &honey), Lunch: Chicken, gluten free corn chips. Drank a LOT of water though with Crystal l
  11. Hi, I'm 17 and male and I have moderate acne (mostly on my cheeks, white heads and red spots) I really need to cure this, it is destroying my life. I have had acne since i was 13 I'm currently trying a no wheat and no milk diet but after 3 weeks i see no improvement. I miss eating wheat and dairy foods.. Does diet actually affect acne? I eat all organic. Also, is it alright if i eat wheat without gluten? Or should i eliminate all wheat? I use Desert essence face wash and a natural alo
  12. I'm 17 and have had hormonal acne since I was 12. My skin has cleared up remarkably during the summer, and now I have virtually not a single spot on my face other than a couple of small hyperpigmentation/red marks left over from earlier acne. When I wash my face, it feels flat and smooth. This is the first time since I started combating acne that my skin has improved significantly on its own! I've been following a strict diet for the past few months: I cut out dairy, processed foods, white rice/

    Dairy

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone else noticed a link between their breakouts and consumption of dairy products. It seems that whenever I eat butter, cheese, or anything with milk ingredients in it, I break out a few days later and I notice more inflammation. I had a severe milk allergy when I was a baby, which would only result in throwing up (as far as I know). I was wondering if maybe that sensitivity to dairy is resurfacing? I was also on a 50 day round of doxycycline (antibiotic)...could that h
  14. tiny little whiteheads like bumps which have red(inflamed) bases. picture : I KNOW THEY DON'T SEEM ANYTHING BIG BUT THERE ARE SO MANY SOMETIMES AND ALMOST ALWAYS , ALL OVER THAT THEY DO BOTHER. spread over my forehead,cheeks and around the nose area(mostly the area which has huge pores). i get them all the time and they do go way earlier or later(sometimes in days or weeks). i apply faceclin(clindamycin + nicotinamide) gel on them twice a day as spot treatment. and use my salicylic acid
  15. First of all, i woud like to say that being an acne sufferer, i totally understand the pains, feelings and other several emotions which effect to our daily life activities. It took me 4 years plus to find a cure which i can say I found a cure to acne. I read this forum and learnt a lot. So, I decided to make an account and give back to this forum for what I have learnt these years. Long stroy to short, I got the first acne on 2009 which was severe. I had no experiences so my sister brought m
  16. Hi All! I went on a vegan diet about 2 months ago, and maybe I'm just being quick to judge, but I am not seeing many results. My diet is made up of fruits, veggies, legumes,whole grain breads and pastas, many vegan alternative products like fake cheese and meats, dairy free milks, vegan junk food on occasion (vegan chocolate, potato chips, coconut ice cream, vegan desserts),tofu and soy products. I also drink a ton of water, get plenty of sleep and excercise, as well as keep up with a skinc

    Healthier Diet=More acne?

    Hello! Foremost, I'd like to say that I have been combatting with light to moderate acne for years now. Recently, I have been eating healthier (it isn't that I have eaten unhealthy before, it is just I am cutting back on rice consumption, oily food intake, etc). However, it seems as if my skin gets worse when I eat more raw vegetables. Any deviation from my normal diet that I have had for my entire life, essentially (consistent home cooked, Indian food all my seventeen years of living), resul
  18. Quick question about turkey and chicken where could I buy them organically or whatever? I heard their both much better for you and to me it seems like it's the only type of meat I could throw in my body besides like wild salmon and what not, I'm 16 and love eating meat but I think I'd rather go for clearskin than eating whatever I want been eating lot of veggies and fruits etc. had about mild-ish acne since about the 7th grade now am in 11th so eating right seems the way to go my scars seems lik
  19. This is the post I made 4 years ago when my acne was affecting my personal life, confidence and occupied a lot of my time. Please keep in mind some of my views have changed (I'm going to elaborate in this post). After following that regimen for a few months in 2013 the situation has become normal and I stopped looking at this forum. Recently I've noticed this forum has been sending me summaries of recent posts and I thought "Why don't I unsubscribe? I know my stuff" but before that I

  21. hello! two years or so ago I began experiencing more severe acne than I had in my teenage years. before that, I'd have the odd blemish or two but never had to think very hard about what products I used on my skin. my skin today is the worst I have ever seen it and I now find myself o.b.s.e.s.s.i.n.g. over every little thing I do, wondering if it contributes to my acne. my health history: I have alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune disorder that causes mild hair loss; I am also lactos

    Hormonal Acne Help

    hi guys i brought my blood test results to my dermatologist and she is convinced that my testosterone levels are slightly high (even though im on Diane 35) and they are the reason behind my monthly flare ups. So she suggested some dietary changes such as: consuming more organic soy products eating less animal products avoidind dairy eating flaxseed so my question is to ladies who have high testosterone like me:Do you guys did any dietary changes?Has it helped?What can i do about tha
  23. I've recently started supplementing with standardized Milk Thistle one time a day and wondering if anyone has any success, experience with helping with fat digestion and liver cleansing which would ultimately help with inflammation and skin? I am taking doxy in conjunction with Spiro and really wanting to treat my liver well and aid it in all it's work. Since taking doxy I also take a good probiotic, but I noticed an increase in bloating and IBS symptoms since on the antibiotic. However,
  24. It's very weird because for me potatoes can be incredibly bad for my skin, but other times I can eat them and be totally fine. It seems that whenever I get a baked potato from a restaurant or even make them myself I break out with large pimples somewhere on my face within a few hours. When I eat baked sweet potatoes I notice the same thing, maybe even worse, literally every time. However, I've been eating peeled, boiled red potatoes every day for a few weeks, and my skin seems to be fine. Last
