  1. Read this PLEASE. It's been a long road, and I feel like I can answer a lot of questions. I'll have a concise conclusion at the end, so don't worry about remembering everything I say that you need to do. The immune system is designed to keep things like viruses and foreign bacteria out of our system. Bacteria's getting in our system, so there's clearly a problem. To first answer the fiends that insist acne is from hormones and oil glands and which can't be changed, they can. You can balance horm
  2. 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
  3. does vegan diet work for helping acne? Ive tried it but my acne seemed to get worse. WTF completely bummed out. Has this happened to you?
  4. Hi everyone. I'm a 25 year old woman suffering from hormonal acne on my chin. I used to only get cysts, now I get a combination of cysts, pustules and pimples but only ever on my chin. I'm fed up. On trimethoprim to try and treat it. Did the dairy free diet for a month and didn't really think it had worked but once I reintroduced dairy I had the most horrendous breakout ever. I'm thinking about stepping it up to the next level and doing an organic, vegan, low GI, no refined sugar diet for 3 m
  5. 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
  6. This has been happening to me for 10+ years. All food gives me acne- literally. All food prepared by a restaurant gives me super intense acne. Living like this is so terrible. Does anyone have advice/ tips for for not going insane while living with this horribly awful disease??
  7. Dear Reader tonight 11/09/16 marks the first night/day into something I have been meaning to try for a long time. A Paleo diet CURRENT STATUS. Mild acne: Both cheeks, forehead, chin. I want to keep this short and sweet throughout my journey. I will post daily. updating the content untill 1 month mark. I will be 100% Strict. I say this as many users have tried to review said diet. how ever failed in their attempts. Supplements 1x 5000ui Vitamin d 1x multi vitamin 2x Omega 3. Ski
  8. Here goes my first post! About two years ago, I was pushing about 160 pounds. I'm a female who is 5'6. I was tired of being at my weight and felt uncomfortable. From then on, I decided that I needed to lose weight. In order to lose weight, I essentially started fasting. I would eat about two apples a day with some peanut butter and a glass of soy milk with cereal. My portions were ridiculously tiny and I ended up getting down to about 126 pounds. Another benefit I noticed was dramatically cleare
  9. For the past 6 years I have been eating an unhealthy diet and have struggled with dermatitis like symptoms. I recently realized that food might be the cause of my symptoms and had also realized that I have been almost constantly constipated. Going to the washroom was always about forcing and hard stools. When your stool becomes dehydrated from eating unhealthy the waste stays in your large intestine longer, therefore allowing more toxic materials to be absorbed into the body. At this point, I
  10. 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
  11. Hello community! I'm a French student who have suffered from acne for a very long time. I have tried all the treatments imposed by my doctors: dozens of creams and three months on antibiotics. I felt very ugly and I was on the brink of depression, I remember looking at me in the mirror trying to reassure me all the time! It was crazy Last year, after a long search on the internet, I have developed an anti-acne diet. I have completely stopped all dairy products (and I am not intolerant!) , eggs
  12. Hello all! I have written my testimony/story for those who want to read it! For those who don't, keep scrolling and I will talk about my cure below I was taking oral medications to treat my acne for about five years. My dermatologist thought it would be okay for me to be on such medications for that long. Somewhere in those five years, there was a time where I didn’t have a period for nine months. My hormones were completely out of order, and after that nine month time frame, I got off Sp
  13. 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
  14. The McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss. I wasn't using it to lose weight. I was using it to get clear skin. Why? This video right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qdwn2itsgg. Two beautiful twin girls with clear skin going on about how diet cleared them of their acne. It's a plant-based diet, but with a catch: You can't eat any fat. Not even natural fat. That meant no avocados, no nuts, no oils, nothing. You can't even cook with oils. Most of the stuff is raw. Oh my god, I don't know
  15. Hello, all! I began eating very clean about 1-2 months ago. I took out gluten, soy, dairy, legumes, and nuts, and basically all processed and refined sugars. I feel that after taking out nuts, (used to drink almond milk everyday) my skin has really improved! It has been a hard two months or so, but I love this natural route so far. Anyway, it was pretty moderate/severe at one point, and I have cried about it a few times the past couple months. This is the only reason I have been so discipline
  16. So I recently was in Shanghai for 5 months (for studies), which completely took away my acne! I had absolutely no, zero, pimples arriving for the last 2-3 of months. Two of my other friends who came with me there as well said it too, that their skin is better than ever. I've now been back in my home country in Europe for 3 weeks and the acne seems to be coming back as it was before... I've had constant acne for over 10 years and I've even tried isotretinoin antibiotics (didn't have long las
  17. Hi, I'm an 18 year old male, and up until a year ago, I had flawless skin. Acne was an issue, that I never imagined I'd have to deal with. I have a simple question about Dairy. My diet, has never really been healthy, but it's never really been unhealthy either, and milk, up until a year ago, did nothing but make me happy. I've read many internet threads about how avoiding milk can significantly clear your skin and that understanding the inner issue and the personal problems inside your body that
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hey, 19 Y/O, 175lbs, 5"11, Male. So I've had pretty bad acne specifically on my lower face for about 5 months, thus I've been on Accutane (30mgs for a month, now 50mgs) for 2 months and I've seen zero change. (See Before Picture) Last week I went to a festival for 4 days. Ate nothing. 3 Breakfast bars for the 4 days. Didn't wash. Slept in a tent Drank a huge amount of booze. A massive amout of booze. Didn't take my Accutane. Dripping in sweat every night. (The majority of the
  21. Hi and Thank-you for dropping by, My name is Hannah, a 22 year old female looking for allies to support each other through our difficult journey in battling acne. I had acne since my teens, but got 90% clear through changes in diet and taking supplements. I've tried from paleo to low-fat vegan, and I am still looking for what works best for me and my life style. (Of course I don't neglect traditional medicine, I've experience great results from anti-biotic topicals and dan's regime) I
  22. Hi guys! I’m a long time lurker of this forum because I just came looking for answers; I didn’t see the point of posting anything until now. I did it, I finally did it! I found a cure that worked for me and If I can help just one more person I would be the happiest man alive because I know what it’s like to suffer, to slowly lost hope and knowing that with each day a new pimple or cyst comes out of nowhere and a piece of your self-esteem gets chipped away. I cured it with my DIET specifically th
  23. There's a diet I started a little over a month ago in an attempt to resolve my skin issues. After many test & trials, I do have something that's working quite well for me. I am a firm believer that a strict diet can immensely help acne.. Especially certain moderate-severe cases which I believe I was under the category of. Anyway.. One of my co-workers know of the diet I'm doing and he brought a diet called "Whole30" to my attention. Turns out there's an actual term for the diet I've been do
  24. Guys that's my first post here and i want to share my experience with you so i can help anyone who struggled with acne like i did. For the past few years i always had acne on my cheeks it wasn't severe it was barely seen but still i wasn't satisfied and was trying to get rid if it,looking at my skin back then i had the perfect skin and what's ironic i didn't like my skin and saw that tiny pimple a big deal not until 8 months ago that my face erupted in cysts on my chin and cheeks and forehead a
  25. 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
