  1. To start off, I'm on a diet thats controlling my acne. Mind you, it doesn't get rid of it, but most part is controlled. However, the diet is VERY flimsy and I only restrict myself to 4-5 types of meals daily as I am scared to experiment as every time I mess up and eat something I think will be ok but is not, i get a really big cyst that ends up scarring my face 8 times out of 10. I have to constantly clean my bedsheets every 2 weeks and can't play rough contact sports in fear i'll cut myself and
  2. Two months ago: today: So this girly needs some advice from women who have or are suffering from hormonal acne and have used birth control to control their acne breakouts. Background: I have suffered from anorexia for the last 6 years (since I was 16) and due to this I have never properly had my periods, only the occasional one every now and again. However since maintaining my weight, still low but healthy enough (BMI 15, if that is any help to anyone), I have had a massive hormonal breakou
  3. Hi Guys, The change to my skin has been dramatic. I have had no spots on my face for 2 months now but I still get some spots on my scalp. I would therefore say I am around 80% - 90% cured. I still have very oily skin though. What I did was: 1. Cut out all Coffee, replacing with decaffeinated tea. 2. Follow an Intermittent Fasting pattern of eating. I eat from 12pm - 9pm everyday only. Apart from step 4 below. 3. Have a VSL#3 sachet at 8am on an empty stomach. 4. Have a full glass of home
  4. Acne is a sign of an imbalance in your body (hormones and/or bacteria). Take this sign of acne as a positive message to rebalance your body & become a healthier and happier person. Don't get frustrated, don't get angry, be thankful for your body letting you know something is off track. of course skin care is important but so is what you put in your body. AVOID: dairy, gluten, sugar, grains, alcohol, coffee, vegetable oils, and any processed junk that comes in a package, high glycemi
  5. I. Diet Eat Liberally: all kinds of vegetables, unprocessed meat, butter, coconut oil, spices, broths, liver meat Eat Moderately: processed meat, potatoes Eat Never: grains, gluten, refined sugars And of course, lots of water! II. Lifestyle Short 30 minute aerobic/anaerobic work out 3x a week Meditate 3-4x a week Sleep as early as you can! It's very important Stay positive Simple and short.
  6. Hello all, I started the Acne Bootcamp series by Dr. Neal, and have been on it for about a month now. I've started to see results, my bump count is dropping, but I feel like I am at a pivotal point in the treatment, and could really use some input to avoid going backward and having those costly mistakes that so often leave weeks or months of regret and repair. I'm 20 years old and I've struggled with acne since I was 13. I've had mostly cystic acne, bordering on severe acne, and like most fo
  7. I switched to a paleo diet a year ago and it was the best decision of my life. I don't know why some people refuse to leave that diet can be related to acne. I'm not saying that all people's acne is related to their diet. However, It is very clear that for some people their food choices is their aggravator, as it was the case for me. Now I'm going to switch to a vegan diet and can't wait to start this new chapter in my life! I am not giving out medical advice but I encourage people to try dropp

    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

    Day 21

    I cannot believe it is day 21!! I thought I was going to be way more diligent about posting here but life gets busy, what can I say? Anyways, I've been really good with my diet after I had an incident. It's actually pretty funny now that I think about it. My last blog post talked about how much I missed cheese. Well, the next day I split half a pizza with my husband and yes - I broke out! And I don't mean the whiteheads I had before, I mean big ugly cysts. It took awhile for my breakout to me
  12. Hello, I have had PIH for the past 8 months now, before that my skin was very clear and I would never really get spots. I can't ever really say for sure what the cause of my PIH is and I will never know but I think a factor is diet. My diet isn't great and it hasn't been the best this year and it's just weird how all of a sudden I get PIH now at a time like this where my diet is bad. Has anybody else noticed a link between diet and PIH? and has diet improved PIH? I don't get any new spots, s
