  1. Hi all, I came across an article about ORTHOREXIA, which is an eating disorder defined by strict, rigid, religious healthy eating, and wondered if my "healthy eating" is considered orthorexic. I am a 21 year old Japanese female, who has been struggling with mild acne since 12. My acne flared up high school and first years of university both due to a combination of stress and medication. Since medications were only making the acne worse, I tried controlling my acne more naturally by firs
  2. Hello, I am looking for a little bit of help or advice I am a 22 year old female and I have been suffering with acne for about a year now. About 2 years ago I started suffering from bulimia. Although never underweight, I didn't have a period (TMI, I know!) for about a year. About a year ago I started fully recovering from my eating disorder (frequency reduced dramatically) and have been completely free of it for about 3 months. As soon as my periods came back a year ago, I developed
  3. This post has been a long time coming. I think it's finally time. I will try to keep this as short as possible, no guarantees ;] I apologize for the general lack of pictures. I have a few on my profile of when my acne was at it's worst. Otherwise, I never took pictures of it and ALWAYS wore makeup out and when taking pictures. I don't wear foundation or anything any more, though. This is the back-story. Skip ahead for the meat and sweet potatoes. . When I was 12, I started to devel
  4. I was in the hospital with anorexia and underwent an aggressive refeeding program, which most likely messed with/reset my hormones, resulting in a case of acne unlike any I've dealt with since my teens or 20's. The fact that they were using crappy hospital pseudo-foods didn't help. Although it spits in the face of my dairy and bread laden meal plan, I am back on a diet of "clear skin foods," simultaneously taking activated charcoal caps, using an activated charcoal mask, skin-clearing foundatio
  5. Hi. Ok so my acne right now is the worst its been since high school! Im desperately needing help! Im 31 and suffer from hormonal acne. December was an extremely stressful time for me. (A death in family and another traumatic event happened). My face, around my mouth, just exploded with acne! Some of the acne went away, but the hyperpigmentation is really bad! Cysts, pustules and whiteheads. Id been using Cetaphil Oily Skin face wash as my skin is quite oily. With Benzac Ac 5% gel. Followed b
  6. In order to make a very long, frustrated question short: Is there a link between eating disorders, that causes hormonal-unbalance and acne? I could use a proper explanation! Best Regards.
  7. 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
  8. Does anyone know of a link between acne and anorexia? I've always had acne, but my skin got REALLY bad when I developed an eating disorder in 2012. About a year earlier, I had lost my period. Now, I'm 8 months into recovery (yes!!!), have a regular cycle, and my hair is becoming a little thicker, but my skin is still awful. I've spent thousands of dollars on derm visits and every acne treatment available, but NOTHING has worked. So I'm desperate to understand the link between acne and my eat
  9. Hey guys. So at the beginning of last summer, I became obsessed with my worsening acne. I decided to make a change and made the BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE. I read and researched everything there was to know about diet and acne on this website. Before I even knew what happened, all I was eating as cabbage and occasionally gluten free waffles . That was the beginning of my eating disorder. Months later, I have now been diagnosed with BDD with awareness(basically I know my skin isn't that bad, ye
  10. Hi I really need help to find out what is going on with me. I been doing a lot of research to try and see what more to avoid to not get acne but I still get it and BAD! I'm going to list alot of factors of my lifestyle so you all can get an idea and possible help me out better. I've been a fruitarian/vegetarian/vegan for about 5 years or so since that time I also had developed anorexia/bulimia for about that long(still struggling). When I lost lots of weight at first as a fruitarian(only eat
