    Yaz & Lifestyle Log

    Hello acne log! I hope this is the beginning of a happier time in my life. For me, acne = anxiety, depression and very low self-confidence, so I've decided to start this log to keep me on the right track to getting my skin clear. Quick background about my skin; I'm currently 21 and when I was a teenager my skin wasn't too bad until I was around 16-17, when I went on antibiotics, which did nothing for my skin. Even then I guess my acne was only mild. At 17 I went on the pill and my skin was
  2. I folow my the 28 day acne-free diet program, take the appropriate nutritional supplements and use recommended topicals. Avoid coffee, excess alcohol and tobacco, as well as sugary and starchy foods. Exercise in moderation, practice stress-relieving and relaxation-inducing techniques and give yourself the gift of a good night’s sleep. I have this e-book in pdf somebody knows how to open it in word and copy here ? PM effect: <3 <3 <3 my boyfriend upload my all t

    Acne Cure

    Hi everyone, I am 24 and started getting acne at 21. About 2 yrs ago, there was a time that all I ate was cereal for some reason, and during that time I noticed my acne completely went away. When I started eating other things, it came back. Also, shortly after that, I started drinking ovaltine every day three times a day and noticed that it made my acne go away as well . This was about 6 months, when I stopped drinking it , it came back. What does this mean?
  5. After suffering from acne for many years, and trying everything, paleo diet, antibiotics etc etc, I am having success with a new diet, that treats insulin resistance properly. We know diet effects blood sugar levels, which in turn effects insulin levels and this effects androgen production, which effects sebum production which effects how bad our acne is etc. I tried to treat this using paleo, limited carbs high fat. It was too hard for me, I felt bad all the time, no energy etc. It was only unt
  6. Just a quick update that I'll be getting Broad Band Light treatment tomorrow (I think it's an updated type of intense pulse light treatment). It's supposed to help with sun damage, pigmentation issues, and overall skin health. It supposedly can help decrease your change of developing skin cancer in the future too which sounds like a nice bonus to me. I spent basically my entire youth frying in the sun and then my skin got scars from all my cystic acne so my skin has been through a lot. I figure

    1 Step To Curing My Acne

    Hi, My name is Opey and I've had acne since I was 14 and now I'm 20 going 21, basically I've had acne for 6 years straight and I just can't deal with it anymore. I hate looking in the mirror because of my countless inflamed cystic acne. It just looks disgusting and I can be honest with my self, people around me have said it to me so I know myself. When people make fun of me because of my acne it doesn't actually hurt my feelings and that's being honest, but it just makes me think, what about if
  8. I hope sharing my story with others may help them in some way. My journey with acne started around 25 years ago in my teens, I'm now 39. I've always had pretty clear skin on my face, just bad bacne (sometimes cystic and painful) and occasionally on chest. Made me horribly self conscious in certain clothing, at beach and god forbid, intimate with partners. Over the years, I've used oral contraceptive Diane (pretty good), taken supplements (not very disciplined, some made me break out horribly li
  9. Sup! So im breaking out again, yeah im clueless as to why. I thought i could power through before, just by being on a strict diet. Yeah so i did everything, don't want to go into cause it's long and complex. Just rest assured i've tried it. Anyway i am on a diet now and yes i've been on it for a long time, yes i've seen good results. Lately however i've realized the acne horizons are broader and are unbelievably, a bigger, better, more complex pain in my bottom! (ass). So im not eating g
  10. I am currently taking the anti biotic doxycycline and I've been on it for 2 months now and nothing has reallyy changed, I find that my skin becomes itchy and inflamed sometimes, maybe more so when exposed to heat, going out in public, and when my beard starts to come in, i recently stopped eating any gluten and dairy because I've also had stomach issues in the past, I've been drinking more green tea and a probiotic. Is my anti biotic really helping? does anyone have similar skin and eliminated c
  11. Hello Acne.org I am brand new to this forum but have seen a lot of people give very great advice hence the reason I signed up. To give you a background story of myself I am a 19 year old male in university and have suffered from acne since I was 14. Between 16-17 I was on antibiotics (Doxy Cycline) and my skin was 100% clear. However I try to avoid pills and antibiotics if I can. I read that acne was caused by diet and that anitbiotics were extremely bad for your health. Now I know this

    Mustard Oil?

    anybody with any opinion on mustard oil? could this be considered healthy fat? p.s i mean the genuine mustard oil that one gets from grinding mustard seeds, without any adulteration.
  13. Hi~, What if there was a little software program that you could tell what foods you're eating each day, and it automatically analyzes your diet and figures out what is causing your acne (assuming it's diet-based, so not going to cure everyone). E.g, you tell it stuff like this each day: Monday 17th April 2017: Eaten/Drank: Cheerios w/ milk Big bag of Doritos KFC value bucket Kool-aid jug KFC value bucket (again) Small brownie Acne Report: 4x existing whiteheads 2x existing cysts
  14. Hi! First, I apologize for my English because I do not know well. (thanks to google translate ...) I am here because unfortunately in Italy there are few and confusing information about acne. Do not yet know this forum and I could direct me to the topic that might help me in my situation. Let me tell you my story: 17 years in the summer I had the first outburst of acne, moderate. I went to the dermatologist and I have used creams, to no avail. I did some analysis to find cysts in the ovari
  15. My Story: My adult-onset acne began in early 2010. I still don't know what triggered it but for the next 3 years, I suffered ugly red zits... mostly on my forehead. Sometimes on my nose. It effected my self-confidence and made me feel frustrated and depressed. I had long suspected a dietary cause. But 2 seperate dermatologists told me unequivocally, "there is no proof of a connection between diet and acne". They then prescribed antibiotics and harsh topical creams. As a result, I suffered w
  16. So lately I've been working out and exercising, eating right all of a sudden I start to break out badly again and this is really frustrating. I just wanted to know what treatments do you guys recommend ? and does the fact of me changing my diet and working out contribute to the fact of me breaking on what not? Ive suffered with acne before and I've used African raw soap and tea tree oil and it seemed to work but now all its doing really is drying my skin and irritating it ,so I would just like
  17. Hello everyone I'm a 20 year old male and I'm in dire need of help. The inflammation you see in my photo has been there for atleast a year now. It's never gone completely away and right now it's at one of the worst points it's ever been at. I went to a dermatologist and was given benzacliln and amoxacillin and I found that the benzaclin, being a steroid, made it worse so I figured it may be Perioral dermatitis and it was making it worse. Absolutely NO IDEA what this is but the rest of my skin i

    I'm New :)

    I am a 32 year old wife and mother of two. I work in healthcare administration. And I HATE that I am still plagued by acne. After years of stalking this website during my battle with acne, I finally decided to join. Here's a little bit about me and my struggle... I started getting mild acne around age 12...very typical of the age and I was convinced that I would grow out of it...my mother swore that I would. I used every remedy that was available at the local CVS to a pre-teen with nothi
  19. **I know this is a long post but please read if you are an adult and suffer from cystic acne and are at your wit's end!** Hello everyone! I have been on and off this site since I was in highschool (I am now 24) and have been dealing with persistent acne ever since I was about 15-16 years old. I'm prone to hard, painful, cystic pimples and would sometimes have 5 or 6 of them pop up on my face in one day! Within the last 2 years, I started noticing my acne getting worse, and taking longer
  20. I was wondering if anybody could help me find vitamins that could help with my acne. I've recently gone gluten and dairy free but am still suffering from severe acne. I've began taking biotin and borage oil but was wondering in anybody had any other ideas as well as what else I should try to eliminate from my diet? Thank you so much in advance.

    The Lowdown

    Hello my fellow acne fighters! Well, it's the first week of the semester, and guess what I have? A knock-down, drag out cold. BLEGH. So not only am I going to four classes and working, I'm also carrying tissues around with me and my head feels like it weighs a hundred pounds. Fun times, Fun times. Alright--what you've all been waiting for...the skin update! It's been rather a up and down, ladies and gentleman, it turns out the desert essence moisturizer was another example that I should never sw
  22. So here is my story 23 year old male, have mild acne (mostly cystic), got worse after high school. I believe it is hormonal/hereditary because my mother and siblings all have it as well. Like many have tried just about everything over the counter. I went to to a derm a couple years ago and he gave me tetracycline (which i shouldn't have taken) and a sulfur wash which didn't do much. I hated the idea of using harsh chemicals in or outside of the body so I took the holistic approach. I have had
  23. For example if I drink a low quality coffee I might find I get rashes or other acne problems. If iI drink a higher quality coffee I don't get these problems. I've got this same situation with chocolate. If the maker of it is higher quality I don't experience skin problems. Does anyone else relate to this ? btw the type of coffee im drinking is blue mountain from jamaica. very good top notch and is not bugging me like all the others ive tried.

    Allergy To Eggs

    I am 99% certain that I am allergic to eggs, and that eggs have been one of the main contributors to my adult acne (I'm 26). I recently wrote a post about becoming clear while on spironolactone (the popular anti-androgen that has been featured on acne.org and elsewhere). In that post, I mentioned that since February I had reduced my dose of spiro from 100 mg to 50 mg (still too afraid to wean myself off that final dose!), and had been pretty clear until June. HOWEVER I'm a researcher, and
  25. Hey everyone. I'm a 20 year old girl in college. I've tried basically every prescription there is except for accutane. Duac and retin-a micro kept me clear for a while, but then my cystic acne returned.Currently I'm using epiduo and a sulfure face wash, but now my derm wants me to take an oral antibiotic. The thing is, I don't really feel comfortable with taking an antibiotic long term. The only place on my face that breaks out is my chin. I get deep rooted cysts that are really painful. Bu
