  1. I have attached my before and after. This is from 2/20 to today, 2/24. I DO have tinted moisturizer on. And it still doesn't cover my scarring all the way. I have never been a face picker until a few years ago. Around the time I was living on my mom and dad's living room floor with my husband. We were saving up to buy a home. I was 20, he was 21. After we bought our home and finally settled I still kept picking. I knew it was a nervousness thing, because I also used to be a habitual cheek-c
  2. Hi! It's been a long time since I've been on this website, for the most part due to my life becoming very hectic! D: I just wanted to say that I think I am well on my way to being clear by the end of this year! Here's some changes I made in my diet that I think everyone should ponder on. NO, I'M NOT SAYING THIS WILL WORK FOR EVERYONE ;-) I just think these changes have made a major influence on my skin's improvement. I QUIT EATING EGGS! I learned not too long ago that eggs are SUPER infla
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi. I've been on a diet (full diet that's now complete.) which is basically avoiding all foods I am intolerant to, which I got a test done and I'd been having a fair bit of them. But they have ALL been cut out for the past 3 days. No, I'm not having junk food, such as Mcdonalds, soft drinks etc, a lot of protein and vegetables and snacks that aren't bad. I've been following what my nutritionist has been telling me to do. And I take vitamin supplements as well btw. Anyway, I've been seeing her
  6. Hello! I was wondering if anyone here had any personal experience with the lchf or gi diet. Did it work in your experience? How long did it take? I would be very greatful if anyone could mention a diet that worked for them. BONUS MOTHER******* does green tea really help with acne? If so, which? Once again thank you!
  7. Hello, friends! I hope you have some wonderful plans for NYE. So ... I have a few questions about diet, as it relates to hormones - and a few other things. If you could take the time to lend me your expertise, I'd be eternally grateful! As I decipher my body's wisdom about what works and doesn't work for it, I've been thinking a lot about times in the past when I was clear, of course. All through college, I was on BC (Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo), and used Differin. I don't think I neede
  8. I just wanted to say this... I have been doing a healthy fruit-vegetable with the acception of white meats, etc. No junk foods, fried foods, diary, and sugars of course. Well i've been doing it for about 2 months now, and all the current acne is gone after 1 month.. And my red marks started to diminish as well.. BUT, my stubborn ass figured i'd try eating something different last night, so i ordered 1 dominoz sandwich lol, i couldn't resist it, i thought my acne and red marks were unde
  9. 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
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9qX4ao4yjU Hey everyone my name is Connor. I took Accutane for 5 months, 80 mg a day when I was 17 years old. I am now 19 and in the past few months have taken my recovery seriously and have made some great progress. I am feeling better now. I would like to share some experiences and what is working for. The main points I a want to get across are: You can recover. It is entirely possible. Depending on the how hard you work will determine how fast you improve.
  11. First off, the reason Im asking this question is because I want to gain weight. I am 107 puonds right now as a 17 year old male. i want to be at least 115. I tried gaining weight with olive oil and I broke out pretty bad. I was having like 4 tablespoons EVERY DAY for about 3 weeks, not knowing it has quite a bit of omega 6. So olive oil is out of the question, the only other way is carbs i guess. But I know that lots of carbs are bad. Sooo i was just wondering my diet is in the low to moder
  12. How bad is my bacne and bacne scars? Any tips?
  13. So, my skin has been pretty bad for a while now, but the last few days it has gotten significantly worse. Then today, I got my period and now I'm laid up in bed with the WORST cramps, possibly an ovarian cyst. A little backstory... my mom and several other female relatives have PCOS. I'm pretty sure I do as well, though I've never had an x-ray to prove it, but my last OBGYN always referred to me as having it, and I've experienced (very, very painful) ovarian cysts a handful of times in the past.
  14. 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
  15. Hi everyone IF YOU DONT WANT TO READ THE EXPLANATION SKIP TO THE LAST PARAGRAPH basically i've had moderate to severe acne for about 4 years now (its been moderate for the last year) and as is the same with most people on here ive tried all sorts of pills and creams over this period. And i have also had a huge interest in diet, nutrition and exercise. about 3 years ago now i did the basic 6 food elimination diet (milk, soy, egg, wheat, nuts and shellfish) and took vitamin tablets to re
  16. 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
  17. Hi everyone! I have been lurking on the board for a little over a week. First, thanks to everyone for sharing their stories and advice as it helped me through my most recent situation. Secondly, I figured I would post the nutrition portion of my plan in this area as it has made a tremendous difference (in my opinion) in my speedy recovery. If you want to read my whole story I posted it in "Introductions" here: http://www.acne.org/...paying-forward/ Here's the diet portion. My Diet:
  18. To make a long story short, I'm 35 and have had moderate acne for 20 years. Tried it all except accutane treatment. Typically I had 3-5 breakouts every 1-2 weeks mainly on my forehead. Breakouts would be persistent pustules (red inflamed with white heads) and take 5-7 days to heal. Recently, I went on a 'No Sugar No Flower diet to loose some weight and surprisingly this helped tremendously in clearing my acne. I've been on this diet for almost 2 months now. I have had only 1 or 2 minor break
  19. Hi everyone! So I've been lurking acne.org for about two years now and this is my first time posting. I'm very desperate to find a solution to my chronic moderate cystic acne issue. Sorry this is so long but I really would love some advice! Ok so here it goes: I'm currently almost 20 years old and throughout my teenage years I suffered from a little bit of acne that healed very quickly and it started to get better as I got older. Never ever washed my face. But silly me before college decided I
  20. Hi everyone! I wanted to share this video with you all, because I finally have clear skin and if this video could help just one of you, it'd be amazing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh1O39ZNuEE Let me know how you get on! xx
  21. Caloric Intake and Acne

    There is a growing body of scientific evidence to support the idea that diet and acne may be, at least in part, connected. Perhaps the most overlooked dietary factor that may affect acne development is a person's caloric intake. Research has shown that a high calorie diet affects hormones that are associated with acne, hypothetically leading to more acne. On the flip side, lowering calories might have the opposite effect. So when people eliminate foods they...
  22. Disclaimer - This may not work for everyone, but I have been suffering from hormonal acne for about 20 years now and have FINALLY managed to clear my skin, so I wanted to share with people what has worked for me in the hopes that it might help someone out there struggling with the same problem. The following is a detailed description of my multi-structured approach. Feel free to chime in if you have questions. Also note that there is nothing here that is super expensive. All the things I do
  23. Alternative Therapies for Acne

    Inflammation is the immune system's way of repairing damage and fighting bacteria and viruses. Normally, inflammation is short-term and resolves itself once the threat is eliminated. However, ongoing inflammation is present with diseases such as acne. This is called chronic inflammation, which occurs when normal inflammation persists for months or years. Chronic inflammation can affect all parts of the body, such as in the case of arthritis, heart failure, diabetes, and dementia. In the case...
  24. What Causes Acne?

    Scientists still do not know exactly what causes acne, but agree that several different factors likely combine to cause it. While acne may seem like a simple disease, in fact, an intricate process leads to a clogged pore and the redness and inflammation that we see as pimples on the skin. Hormones - For Sure One thing we do know for sure is that acne is in part a hormonal disease. We know this because acne symptoms...
  25. 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
