One of the splotches will not seem to heal fast and the other will never dry out. Please help, anything i can put or use to heal it please!
  2. hello friends! holistic living and healthy diet is known to have a positive effect on us,acne sufferers. so having a balanced diet and having an active life(both physically and mentally) is important. also eliminating food items that cause u problem is a must.(different people seems to have different intolerance..so don't go by what others are following.check for yourselves what suits you and what doesn't but make it a point to share your unique experiences and ideas/concepts.it'll not onl
  3. Okay so I got this cluster of tiny pimples by my nose (as you can see in the picture, sorry gross!) How do I get rid of these within a week!? I have a music festival to go to and it's going to be really hot so i'm hoping to not have to wear makeup :/ Some appear to be whiteheads but they're impossible to pop. They just keep filing up with more gunk after I attempt to pop them because I cannot get everything out. I just want to dry them out so I can put on moisturizer and they can go away! Some o
  4. Hi everyone thank you for taking your time to read this. In this article I will keep saying me because it worked for me. We are all different. But this might help you! so let's start! Little background first: I am 23 years old. My skin had lots of acne from the age of 20 till the age of 22. I lived in Florida. This is what helped me to get rid of my acne. There are 3 factors that played a roll in my acne. 1. Food 2. Products 3. Stress Food is a big part! what you eat, is who
  5. So I have what I would consider moderate acne. Certainly not nearly as bad as some people have it, but I definitely have trouble skin. I also have mild to moderate eczema, usually mild. Been struggling with acne for about 4-5 years. Went vegan because of it 2 years ago and have been eating about 80-90% raw for the past 2 months or so. Although my skin has improved, it is far from perfect and I am quite insecure because of it. Recently I decided to do some grape fasting (went about 2 days, broke
  6. Hi everybody! Thanks to this website I was able to kill off all of my acne and ever since then I have never had a break out ever again (except for the occasional random pimple) I was 18 at the time and I didnt have a credit card so I couldnt buy the products for the Regimen online and I had to use whatever I could get my hands on at the local drugstores. I looked for similar products and they worked amazingly!!! Im so thankful I found this website! Also, the moisturizer I had started to use actu

    Day One

    Today is Day One of my gut healing protocol. It's basically my last chance to heal my skin, because I have tried EVERYTHING else! Antibiotics (twice,), BC, BP, salicylic acid, accutane (isotretinoin) (couldn't keep going due to horrific side effects so acne came back.) I've tried dairy free, low fat, vegetarian, vegan... you know the drill. After extensive research (we're talking bloody hours trawling the internet and looking at ebooks, blogs, PubMed, etc., I have decided the acne is a direct
  8. Hi there, It's been a while since I posted on acne.org. I do have a look around once in a while, but as my signature says; my skin has gotten a lot better so I'm not as obsessed as I was. Anyway, I started this topic because although my skin HAS gotten better and is pretty clear I've been really busy lately and haven't been keeping my diet as under control as much as I wish, and I've been getting a few pimples. I came across a topic on here saying that fasting was really effective, and alt
  9. Hey. I'm new to the site, but now I'm finnaly clear I wanted to share with others how I did it so they can (hopefully) achieve the same fantastic results that I did! I started getting acne at around 16 and it had flared up to pretty moderate/severe cystic acne by the time I was about 17. I took minocycline for a while and started using benzoyl peroxide cream in the form of 'Quinoderm'. I did see results after a few months, but the benzoyl peroxide was far too harsh for my skin and, although
  10. Feb 16 2012 update on what has been helping I have experimented with a lot of things.. The candida diet, zapping machines, water fasts, the frutarian diet etc.. What worked you ask? Am I clear yet? Well right now I am in ANOTHER water fast it is my 3rd day so far.. And guess what organ is detoxing once again? My SKIN.. So right at the moment I am not clear only one small pimple on the left side of my chin which is awesome. before the water fast was I clear? Yes I was not perfect but nothing a
  11. The following is my personal regimen that cleared me up extremely quickly (I still have some marks left over, however they have gone from red and very noticeable to a light pink color). First, here is a little background information about me: I am an 18 year old male who, for the most part, never really struggled with acne until I left home for college. I struggled with moderately severe acne for about four months, trying almost every possible product you can think of. I used abrasive scrubs,
  12. I am already clear... Read my log to see what I went through.. I am happy now.. Happy with my skin while is always improving.. As I fast it heals more and more and I look better and better! I don't know how long this fast will last.. But it has been 24 hours.. I will post here every time I fast and also in my other log.. It has valuable information.. please if you suffer read my first post.. it could change your life.. I am not selling anything I just really want to help people love and ac
  13. Hi gang! My background: Lurker for close to 10 years, almost as long as I have had acne. I am a mid-20s college student raising a sibling. In other words, I have no time. I want to look presentable, though. This is why clearing my skin naturally is so important to me. I also don't wear makeup.. so it's magnifies the issue. I'm a hard INTJ, if you dig MBTI. That means I'm typically anxious and tense, which I'm sure is a big part of my acne. BCP (Yasmin) cleared my skin in my teens. Went
  14. Hi. I have a dilema and was looking for a second opinion. I am currently on the medication Celexa for anxiety, I have been on it for about 9 weeks now. I am also a sufferer of mild acne. I have noticed that since beginning to take the celexa, my acne has been much more persistent. My dilema is, is that I am going on holiday in 6 days and I really don't want to go looking the way I currently do. I usually have relatively clear skin, but this is the worst it's been in a while. I was thinking of
  15. hi there. so im looking for the fastest way to get rid of/fade red marks in about 4 months. i just started using a turmeric and honey mask for the past 2 nights. i am good with following anything religously. please help me. its urgent. im looking to purchase anything under $100. Currently. I wash my face in the morning with the shower head, and then i use Kiss My face 4% AHA Moisterizer all over my face. Then at night- i was my face with warm water, apply honey/turmeric mask, then i wait
  16. I've tried basically all the over the counter products that one can purchase. Yes, all of them. None of them made my skin better. On the contrary, all the products seemed to make my skin worse. I've had consistent severe cystic acne everywhere on my face. It all began when my grandmother told me about this miracle drink...that both prevents and helps with arthritis, cancer, et. al. To be honest, it seemed to be good to be true. I took her advise with a grain of salt and you should too. T
  17. With 20 mg Isotretinoin, is it possible to clear your skin up very quickly that lasts for a day to a week? It doesn't matter if the skin gets worse again AFTER that, the main concern is having clear sign for this short period of time, such as for a formal occasion where you need to look your best Can you safely up the Accutane dosage to achieve this?
  18. Hey everyone! So I've posted a few topics here over the years about my face routine. However, as of about a month ago, I came across the best, BEST method I've ever used. So much better that I'm never going back to a regular cleanser ever again. Oatmeal. That's it. Regular, PLAIN quaker's oatmeal. I always liked the idea of natural remedies for the face, but didn't think they'd ever work. Some information on me. I'm a 20 year old female. I had moderate to severe hormonal acne
  19. Hey all, I've decided to start a 10 day water fast to hopefully help heal my sensitive and reactive towards everything skin. Right now i have some rash on my face (other than that face is generally clear at this point in my life) and chest and back acne. Aiming for 10 days, could go over or under depending on how much it helps. I've done a few short fasts here and there, never an extended one so I figured to help me keep with it I'd write about it for the sake of thy readers... Or just me.
  20. Hi guys. I have a deep scar on my nose its actually an ice pick scar. Will a fast work? What about 10 day fast? I am preparing for the fast. Hoping for your reply. Thanks. You guys might wamt to try it as well, pm me so we could start together. I heard dffuq had succes in treating his ice pick nose scar but eventually hr came out of the scene and left the followers of his thread hanging, full of distress. I believe he fixed his scars but was excited to face back his life again so he did forge
  21. From past forums, you can definitely feel the trial and error but, the answer is clear, Pantothenic acid. Its a vitamin b5 vitamin that is water soluble, meaning your body natural disposes of any excess through urine and doesn't hold it in fats. After watching a video online, as many of us do, I came across a video were a women stated it cured her son of acne in little of a few months. Now, from September I have altered my skin care routine for what seems like a promising lineup: MORNING- wash f
  22. I NEED HELP! I am on a light pill from my doctor which cleared my skin up. For the past five months I've had zero breakouts, just marks left behind. Well this week every day I have been getting new pimples. I put my benzoyl peroxide on them last night and woke up to them being smaller but redness all over my forehead! I need to get rid of this fast as I have a big event in two days and i need my skin to look good! What do I do!? Thanks!
  23. Hello everyone! I specifically joined this forum to lend help to those who have tried a million different acne treatments and have failed. After many several attempts I finally found something that works for me that uses both over the counter topical cream and supplements to help clear cystic acne. Here's my story: When I turned 24 last year after a long night out I woke up the next day with the beginning of an acne breakout. I thought the reason it was happening was because I slept with m
