    Day 31 - What is a low-fat diet??

    Had doc appt yesterday. I fasted for it bc last round I got blood tests done every month. This doc only wants a blood test every two months I guess? weird. I like to know my blood test results bc it assures me that my triglycerides and cholesterol aren't clogging my arteries and leading to a heart attack . Anyway, he increased my dose from 40 to 70!!! I'm very happy, but also nervous. Last round I took doses 30/40/40/60/40. My doc took me off of 60 bc my triglycerides were getting very high. So
  2. My solution is really simple so I’ll keep this short. I remember obsessively scrolling through this forum every day years ago and promising I’d come back and make a post if I ever cleared my face up. Start by saying the usual I tried everything under the sun. Every pill and cream to stop it and nothing worked. I went vegan and actually ate healthy. Not living off Oreos and potato chips cuz those are vegan but nothing will change for you. Cooked with minimal oil and tracked my nutrie

    Solving Adult Acne

    Hello, I've felt tormented with adult acne for the longest time. I also had hormonal/teen acne from 16-18 years old. My skin condition might seem trivial to others around me, and even dermatologists and doctors. But on a personal level, it affects me. And happiness comes from within right? I appreciate others have it worse than me, and that there many other ailments out there which I don't have are far worse. But I put my hands up and admit I am weak, skin troubles are my Achilles heal
  4.

  5. Hi, I'm 20 years old and never had acne (accept the odd pimple) until I was about 18. I developed acne on my chin but it has gotten extremely worse over the past few months and it's really getting me down. I don't want to go outside the door and trying to disguise it with make-up just doesn't work anymore. I just feel so embarrassed and keep thinking it's never gonna go away. It's really red, inflamed, sore and itchy and I can constantly feel it on my face and never stop thinking about it.

    intro + beginning week 4 :)

    let me just say, i TOTALLY regret not creating this blog earlier. anyways, i also have an accutane progress account on instagram by the same name, which i have posted updates on even before i began accutane. anyways, hello! i'm a 16 year old american girl struggling with moderate acne which sometimes flares up and becomes cystic. i first got acne when i was 12, but it was nothing that a little bit of atralin couldn't handle. before my freshman year of high school, my acne worsened a bit,
  7. Some general tips I know that have worked for me are: Drink a lot more water throughout the day, it makes you feel good and your skin feel fresh! Don’t touch your face, your hands are probably dirty and you are putting that on your face! Watch what you eat. Ideally you need to stay away from sugar, dairy and processed foods because they clog your pores and are bad for your health in general! Do some sort of physical activity, it’s not only good for your face but it is also go
  8. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br
  9. 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.
  10. I have visited this forum intermittently over the course of 4 years, during which I had suffered from chronic folliculitis (like this guy but much worse) originally triggered by overuse of minocycline. Things I tried: BP regime. Seemed to help in the beginning, but gave me seborrheic dermatitis and enabled folliculitis to spread to the scalp. Following the acne.org regime was my 2nd mistake! More antibiotics; works for 1-3 months only. Accutane. Helps, but comes back after
  11. 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
  12. Hello everyone, welcome to my first post. This is for me to track my progress as I make changes to my lifestyle and diet inorder to clear my acne for good!! I normaly get spots on the temples of my forehead, along the jaw and on the lower parts of my cheeks. It gets really, really red and just looks so bad. I'm hoping that anyone reading this will be inspired to change parts of their lifestyle that could also be causing acne. If it helps just one person, I'll be happy. Firstly, let me start
  13. If you're male and have acne you may have overlooked a few reason your acne persists. Your acne will most likely never go away if you aren't targeting your Acne Signaling System - the central point of acne initiation, where it all begins I'm going to guess it's pretty damn frustrating to be a grown man with zits!? Not so hot right! This can definitely be a source of insecurity and depression. You're feeling unattractive and maybe aren't comfortable being as socially active as you want
  14. Hi everyone! I made an updated video on how I got rid of my scars with diet & needling. Some people had asked me to update I hope I help at least one person out there <3 I also posted a video with my before and afters on my channel if anyone wants to see my scars/skin before.
  15. Hey to all of you! I hope some of you could give me some advice. I'm really drawing a blank at this point. I've had acne for about 12 years, I'm 25 now. The acne I'm getting of course changed over the years and I mostly break out on both my cheeks and my jaw. I get new pimples every day or every other day when I'm lucky. I always have about 2-6 active pimples. I tried many things but eventually I ended up reading up on how changing your diet can "fix" your skin. I have a major sweet tooth s
  16. So, I was on accutane for about a year. I took it in 2015 and ended towards the summer of 2016. I don’t remember the transition of dosages but I believe I went up to either 60 mg or 80 mg. For the past two years, my skin has been clear. Occasionally, maybe once or twice a week, I’d get 1-2 little dots on my face. For the the past two weeks, I’ve had heavier breakouts. I was not on my period when this began and I still am not. This was my skin two weeks ago:And here was my acne prior to accut

    Chipotle - any red flags?

    Hi everyone, so I've been trying to root out dietary causes of my longstanding acne/bacne and have gone dairy, gluten, and junk food free for a while in those efforts. I have seen some success which has been encouraging, although admittedly up and down. My question is for people's thoughts on Chipotle bowls. I basically eat Chipotle every day for lunch because it's the only spot nearby where I can reliably get non-dairy, gluten-free meals. I actually don't mind the repetition at all and my ini
  18. Hi all! im just here to share my acne story with anyone who is willing to listen. I didnt have acne until i was 19 and it hit me like a train. i dont have any pictures of when it started because i didnt take any. I was so ashamed. But i do have one 2 months after i started my routine. My acne had already started reducing a bit (it was muuuucccchh worse a month before) and within 6 months it had gone. So i have a few tips for those going through what i went through. 1. Dont pick at your s
  19. Hi everyone, I’m looking at getting advice on how to finally clear my acne that I’ve had from age 16 to now 19. Here’s my backstory. (Male from the UK). I had cystic moderate acne on my face for about a month aged 16 before I finally went to the doctors. I was prescribed lymecycline capsules (antibiotic) and benzoyl peroxide cream. It worked and did clear the cystic acne to some extent. About a year in I swapped benzoyl peroxide for adapalene because the BP was too drying on my skin. At 18 I
  20. After upping my protein intake, my breakouts have lessened. Does having protein deficiency cause acne?
  21. hellooo, I finally found the routine that helped me clear my cystic acne (on my cheeks) and I just wanted to share it with those who has tried everything (like me) but nothing seems to work and believes that Accutane might be their last resort. NOTE: this is what worked for ME, thus, it may not work for some people. anyway, the key to this routine is diet. - no milk (this includes any kind of milk eg soymilk, almond milk), well, occasionally, I would have food that consists of milk, j
  22. It's been a few weeks since I last updated this blog, so be prepared for a long one! Right now, without hopefully jinxing it, I have no actives on my face!! It's by no means clear however, unfortunately still some quite persistent lumps from previous spots that just won't go down . I also have A LOT of hyperpigmentation and a few scars so definitely not looking clear by any means. But I honestly can't believe this right now, after just 4 weeks I've reached a point where I am going a good few
  23. 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

    My vegan experience

    Hi, I'm Scott Piercings. I probably should have signed up for this a long time ago: i've had acne since i was 12 or 13 and have tried, what feels like, pretty much everything. Treating my acne has been like trying to solve an unsolvable puzzle. I did, however, manage to get my skin to behave in a way I thought I could only dream of by sticking to what some might consider a torturous diet. Allow me to list everything I eat on practically a daily basis: Quaker One Minute Oats with w
  25. Since around August last year, my skin (which was once very clear, maybe only 3-4 small non-inflamed spots) has been getting worse. At first it was just a few more on my forehead, but now it's covering my forehead, all along my hairline, a little on my cheeks and a bit on my chin. My back and chest doesn't have a lot of acne. Whilst I do struggle with picking acne on my face (though I have improved), I was wondering whether being extremely iron deficient could cause it to get worse. Since my iro
