  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. ok so i still have acne its more mild though. what else should i stop eating to clear up completely? i keep my carb portions low; like half a plantain or half a sweet potatoes to lower the glycemic load of a meal. i eat: carbs all vegetables squashes- winter butternut acorn spagetti sweet potatoes and white sweet potatoes plantains both ripe and unripe green apples~1 a day proteins eggs- i eat alot 4 whole and 4 whites daily grass fed ground beef around 1/2 lb daily lamb chi
  4. I had mild acne as a teen. Never thought too much of it. In college, I went through a stressful breakup with a boyfriend. We had been dating for four years and I took the split pretty rough. After we broke up, my face erupted in pimples. It was also very, very greasy. I thought that this flare up was situational and would go away with time. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Three years have passed since. I am still very oily and suffer from mild to moderate acne. It only takes an hour or so after
  5. 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

    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

    Bacne And Scars

    How bad is my bacne and bacne scars? Any tips?
  8. hello friends! today i woke up and suddenly i have these tiny lil' whiteheads(sharp looking) on my cheeks. am not sure how and why on earth i got then suddenly. i've been following the same routine i follow except for #2 days ago i had one indian sweet(which is like 2 bites of cake,really), #for about 4-5 days i've having yoghurt in fruit salad.(i had tested for yoghurt before.i had stopped having yoghurt for about a mnth and then had it twice a day for 2-3 days...no,i dint have zits th
  9. Can someone here point me to any research that has been done on the acne-gluten connection? What would really be nice is an extensive poll done on acne.org by those who've gone gluten-free. I don't have any of the digestive symptoms, for example, but have discovered that those foods with the most gluten give me the most breakouts. But I'm still on the fence about it because of the difficulty of isolating it: foods with high gluten tend to have a high GI; gluten is in practically everything
  10. 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

    Acne Diet And Supplements

    DIET: Being in an acne safe diet means cutting certain foods from your every day diet. Give it a period of 35 days to up to 3 months to see this truly works for you. But trust me, give it a real fair shot! NO: Dairy, Coffee (yes coffee!!), gluten, sugary drinks, alcohol, sugar (cut it out), seaweed, turkey, shrimp, and SOY (yes even soy milk, so no more soy lattes please. Make your self a favor and get more involved into cooking rather than eating out. Restaurants tend to use a ton of che
  12. 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,
  13. I started having acne when I was 13, but it was exclusively on my forehead. I tried a lot of products until I started taking Proactive, and for the last five years, it's kept my skin almost perfectly clear. I started going to college and halfway through the semester my mom wanted me to try the Neutrogena oil free wash with salycyclic acid. It kept my acne under control pretty well, but it did break me out a bit more than usual (I just thought it was mostly stress) especially around the time
  14. Hello. Over the last few months I've gained moderate to severe acne just on my cheeks. I'm fifteen years old male and this is devastating my social life, I quit my job and have isolated myself for the entire summer. I can't even go out without a hoodie on. I've tried every different kind of topical treatment and nothing works. So I found out about the link between diet & acne. I've been gluten free for 3 weeks because I thought that was my trigger. No results. For the last four days I've
  15. Hello, to my fellow victims of this terrible plague called acne. I’m not new to acne.org as I have stumbled across these forums on many occasions in the past, but this will be my first ever post. I am a 22 year old guy who suffers from moderate to severe acne specifically and almost exclusively on the chin. Picture someone drawing a triangle from the corners of your mouth down to the sides of your chin. I do occasionally get 1 or 2 above my mouth as well (maybe once or twice a month) but they he

    Paleo Diet Log.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately, this diet didn´t work for me. I had already followed an extremely healthy diet for three months, and I kept going for another month, but I achieved nothing, only extreme weight loss even when I ate big portions and several times a day. For me, it isn´t worth it, but I was desperate like most people here, so I tried it as a last resort. I want to say this to anyone who reads the post because I don´t want anyone to be deceived. I think healthy diet can help some people with

    Diet and Acne

    I eat like total crap. Bags of candy and cookies everyday, ice cream, crackers I’m a total binge eater and have always been. Although I have seen progress with my skin, starting tomorrow I’m going to fix up my diet significantly and then I’ll finally see if it makes mine worse and by how much. I’ll keep posting in here.
  18. Summer is coming and the situation is not fine, so I decided to change my regimen for the last time. If the situation doesn't change, I will stop to use all these stupid creams. My new regimen: Every day (twice a day) I will use a Cleanser with 1% of Benzoyl Peroxide Every Morning I will apply a moisturizer (Sebium Hydra) For the nights: twice a week I will apply clindamycin 1% gel three times a week I will apply tretinoin 0.05% twice a week I will apply Sebium Global (a cream with
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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

    Meh

    So I'm dong OK I suppose. I fucking picked again. It's been harder to stop than I imagined it would be. I like to think I have good self- control. I became a vegetarian when I was 13, I pulled myself out of my alcoholism that I've had since I was 14, I overcame my OCD on my own when I was 10(officially diagnosed later on), but I can't stop picking. It's very frustrating. I'm starting to think my picking is actually a manifestation of my OCD, because it is quite obsessive and senseless in nature.

    Allergies and Acne

    (moderators, please do not move this from the general acne discussion forum) Hey Guys! So my darling mother has always spent way too much time on scouring through Google and watching Dr Phil to diagnose herself with any number of things, and it drives me nuts. She's tried to diagnose me with all sorts ever since I could remember, but within the last year, I became very firm with her about not doing that anymore. One of the last things she had brought up before my 'ban' was "histamine intoler

    Diet And Acne

    I don't understand how people can say diet and acne are not related. For instance Ive been doing digging on Sebaceous glands and sebum. Of course we all know, Isotret (Accutane) is the only actual studied scientific proof that it does in fact shrink your glands and sebum production. However I was reading up on what sebum is primarily made up of (Wax, Triglycerides, Free fatty acids, Squalene) Information pulled from : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebaceous_gland - As you can see the Sebaceou
  25. Hi, I am a 35 year old woman and I just discovered what was causing my big, red, painful blemishes, a condition that stayed with me since I was 20 years old. It was gluten-sensitivity. Before I had discovered this sensitivity, I had tried the "Proactiv" type medicines, I made sure I didn't wear moisturizer or make-up with oil in it, (definitely no sunscreen), and even went to the doctor to try a medicine ( but I soon talked myself out of it). Then a few months ago, I read an article about th
