  1. Some general tips I know that have worked for me are: Drink a lot more water throughout the day, it makes you feel good and your skin feel fresh! Don’t touch your face, your hands are probably dirty and you are putting that on your face! Watch what you eat. Ideally you need to stay away from sugar, dairy and processed foods because they clog your pores and are bad for your health in general! Do some sort of physical activity, it’s not only good for your face but it is also go
  2. sorry people i also forgot to mention protein intake. high levels of protein also increase IGF-1 and testosterone. im not saying cutting out protein sources obviously thats stupid but try to not go over you daily recommended amount. also when it comes to you diet we all know the 5 a day rule or whatever arbitrary number the government of your country have decided on. ( basically have as much as you can ) focus more on veg than fruit because the sugar in fruit is still bad for you in large am
  3. During my many years struggling with mild cystic acne and after seeing many different Dermatologists, who put me on many different medications (including Accutane), I discovered that I must be the one to resolve my acne. If I was ever going to manage my acne, I must be proactive and study my skin in order to understand my acne disease process. So I began reading all I could about the skin and what role it plays with the body. Then I systematically examined my skin, trying to figure out what w
  4. Ok I really don't feel like typing a lot but I am very exited and need to type this right now. long story short I have had red acne marks for the last 5-6 months now which have been healing over time but never completely for instance after a shower they will look very red for about 15 minutes. ANYWAY I have avoided exercise like the plague for the last 5-6 months doing litteraly as little as possible (accept walking to school) as I thought this would only create more acne or even pro-long my m
  5. Wondering if anyone has ever experienced a larger than usual breakout (I'm talking like 10+ spots in the space of 2-3 days) after introducing quite an intense workout regime into their daily schedule. I've recently joined the gym and have been doing anywhere between 35 minutes to 1 hour of cardio 4/5 times per week. Not 'light' cardio either. Before then I was pretty much only lightly active at best. I'm breaking out mainly around the lower portion of my face in little clusters --- jawline nex
  6. I have a question: I have been on the Regimen for a few days and am already seeing amazing results. However, I exercise in the afternoons. How should this affect my cleansing routine? Should I cleanse again after I workout? If I cleanse, should I apply treatment as well? I am not wearing any make-up during the day, at least not until I have consistently clear skin. Thanks for the help!

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Is Working out with Makeup on Bad for Acne?

    Many people today wear makeup while exercising. Maybe you head to the gym straight after work or school and don't have time to remove your makeup, or perhaps you simply feel more comfortable and confident with your makeup on. But could exercising with makeup on be causing breakouts or making your acne worse? No studies to date have looked at how wearing makeup during exercise might affect acne or skin health in general. However, we do...
  11. 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...
  12. Tomorrow's food/regimen will be (I have veeeeery limited food options for certain reasons...): On face: Lotion, makeup (I'll check which kind I use tomorrow)Breakfast: Wheat toast and peanut butter Apple Snack: Banana Lunch: Carrots Hummus Apples Snack: Raw almonds Dinner: Salad (non dairy dressing) Cooked vegetable of some type Wash face with Purity Cleanser, some Nivea lotion (keep it simple, no picking...which I already did tonight. Ugh.) Anyway, I'm t
  13. It's now day 4 of taking the treatment. I have noticed some new pimples, but nothing super drastic. They typically pop on their own after I wash my face. I'm trying to wear the least amount of makeup as possible, drinking LOTS of water, and moisturizing regularly. My lips haven't gotten dry yet, but I apply Blistex often in order to delay it as much as possible. It was quite windy today, so skin feels slightly sensitive. My doctor recommended sugar-free gum to help with a dry mouth, bad breath,

    Day 29

    Day 29 - Did not pick today so tomorrow is day 30 and I will be posting pictures! I dermarolled today. I haven't been counting the days but I think its about 10 days since my first dermaroller session? Can't say ive seen good results (its just one session) but I haven't seen bad results which is still good news. I went a little rougher today since I was use to the pricking pain, but hopefully not too rough for my skin to handle. I've done some research, and I think i'll be buying the este
  15. Its's been a while since I'v updated. My skins been doing "OK" on my current skincare. But its not perfect, and I still can't go around make up less, which is something I am dying to do. Especially this summer. Here's my dilema...I'v ordered Dan's Bp.....but I haven't started using it yet because I'm still hesitant to put all those chemicals on my skin and I'm aftraid it will break me out worse and all sorts of things. Also, I'v been useing a lot of tea tree oil in the past few weeks and my skin
  16. My skin continues to do pretty well. I try to eat as healthy as possible, I don't pick at my skin, except for blackheads because they drive me crazy, but I'm trying to stop that because i know my skin will get better if I do. I'm exerciseing a lot and so far not much bacne besides the one or two spots. I had a big HUGE cyst on my chin this week tho..and I'm sorry to say I picked..but it hurt soo much and it was KILLING me! I HAD to get that crap out. But either way, its healing up now, theres ju
  17. just when I'm in the clear, I break a sweat and the acne is back in full force. I wash my face before and after but it doesn't seem to help. What does everyone else do? I know I'm not the only one here that works out.
  18. Soooo a few weeks ago, I had posted all the products I've used in a superrrr long list. (You can find it through my page or something) and I've come to one thing, well two: diet and exercise. After coming off yaz birth control, my acne had came back... bad. I do believe acne is caused multiple ways: diet, exercise/well-being, genetics. My dad still has acne scars and my mom still struggles with breakouts and oily skin. Because of this, I thought I'd be doomed for life. I stopped using a
  19. So, I'm on month 2 of accutane, my dosage has gone up to 40mg (but I'm to alternate days between 20mg and 40mg if it gets too much). I'm trying to get a bit healthier, get in shape and things, but I find I'm really really sore the day after exercise, more so than i was before starting accutane. I know it's one of the side effects, but has anyone got any tips on how to relieve it a bit? Thanks.
  20. I'm currently on the regimen, and every morning at around 9:00am I do my first treatment. Every Monday & Wednesday I have karate class from 1:10 - 2:10, and I always work up a major sweat, so I take a shower afterward to clean myself off, but this of course, also removes the regimen products. Usually afterward I just add moisturizer to my face, so it doesn't dry out, and wait until 9:00pm to do my second regimen treatment. So my question is, should I continue on with this, or could it po
  21. I like my body to have that lean, toned look. To get that I have to do resistance training. Resistance training breaks me out. What to do? Do we have any fitness junkies here who tend to break out from strength training? What have you done to solve this problem?
  22. I've been using this forum for years to try and come up with ideas to combat acne. Wanted to keep a record of what I've tried and how much I think it worked. I'm a 23 year old male. This first part is going to be a informal “patient” history. My current theories are in the second part. I got my first zit at the end of 5th grade. I thought I had a bug bite on my nose and one of my friends told me it was a pimple. I asked my mom if it was a bug bite and over ten years later here I am. C
  23. Hello, i'm new to this forum, and hopefully i'll be able to get some good answers from you. Currently I'm 20, and i'll be 21 at the end of the year. I used to have acne in my face and also chest and back, and I took the accutane treatment for almost 10 months, finally erasing it all from my body. Then, after 6 months, I started taking workout supplements like animal pak (Multivitamins) and also whey protein. After almost one or two months using that supplements, I had another acne breakout.
  24. 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
  25. Does anyone else feel like this? I really never thought I'd be posting here, but I'm near the end of my line. I've followed some of these posts sporadically throughout the years when needed (thank you to all, seriously) but am currently - now more than ever - in real need of support and understanding. The short synopsis of my acne story? I had clear skin up until sophomore year of high school. I'm now 5 years strong with moderate acne mainly on my forehead and around my nose and chin occasion
