  1. In a bit of a dilemma dealing with skin issues… I might be one of the guys that has to go through an Accutane cycle once a year to remain clear, so 2 weeks ago, started taking 60mg daily, with a 120mg dose one of those days of the week (to accelerate the process—total broscience). In the meantime, trying to figure out how else my flare-ups/irritation/inflammation can be minimized…. Maybe I just have overactive sebaceous glands, which Accutane uniquely treats and is very effective at minimiz
  2. Right, you're going to have to forgive me for this essay but I really need advice and I think it's best if I just give you all the facts. I'm male, I'm 23 and I've been suffering from extremely oily/spot prone skin for about 10 years now. I've more or less given in to the fact that I'll probably have oily skin for most, if not all, of my life. I understand there's no miracle cure but it's got to the point where the state of my face has shattered all of my confidence and is having a severely nega

    I suffer from VERY oily skin

    Hello, I suffered from terrible acne for many years but have since out grown it... sorta... I have been left with VERY oily skin that is impossible to stop, or even hide... I blot with oil-absorbing sheets about 3-5 times an hour, use mattefying gel and it all seems to do NOTHING. I've tried a million home remedies, mega dosing on pills, fish oils, all kinds of crazy things with NO SUCCESS. Anyways, I've heard about Sodium Sulfacetamide and Sulfur, supposedly great for oil control etc etc so

    acne vs diet study

    i've posted this message in the acne scar forum but i thought some people might benefit from this: So I'll cut and paste what I wrote: hey good news buddies... I've changed my diet to a low glycemic load diet. Glycemic Load (GL) just measures how quickly the sugar in food are metabolised in the body. So a low GL is good, a high GL is bad. So basically my diet consists of: all meat, all fruits and vegetables, drink just water. avoid all of the following food, processed food like br
  5. :D/ What I've discovered. . . I've been on a mission to get rid of acne, prevent further scarring, and get rid of current acne scars. I have spent a lot of time researching ideas and trying various things. I am still looking for better and improved methods. The follow is what I've discovered so far: 'Age-Less Skin Formula' by Bluebonnet made my skin look wonderful, radiant, and gave an overall glow. Take one capsule daily. It did absolutely nothing for acne but I liked what it
  6. Can Omega-3 help with acne? Did anynone get a breakout from fish oil capsules? What dosage should i take to see results?
  7. Im depating whether to start a b5 regimen and at what dosage. The hair loss side effect worries me more than the diaharrea. If I were to take 5mg a day of b5 how much fish oil should I take to prevent hair loss? Same at 10 mg?
  8. Can someone tell me if there is ANY vitamin A present in plain fish oil (Omega 3)? I have VItamin A by carlson, capsules, from fish liver oil, and each one has 10,000IU, what I dont understand is, whether Fish oil and fish LIVER oil are essentialy same or different??? i want to supplement with one or both, dont know where to start. On the one hand, I have heard good effects of vitamin A (fish liver oil) on skin, on the other hand, have heard Fish oil is also good for acne.. but I dont want t
  9. Hi Dan and everyone, First of all, Dan I commend you on your site. It's great. With so much crap and commercialism on the internet, I am thrilled to find an acne site I trust. I'm a 31-year-old caucasian woman, and I suffer from chronic cystic acne mostly on the lower part of my face but sometimes on my temples and behind my ears, too. I started breaking out in college when I was about 18 or 19. Ever since then -- for years -- I've battled acne. This is what I've tried: Chinese herbs (nope, d
  10. My Problem is,I have pretty smooth skin all the way except for those pesky little zits you some times get on the far end your cheeks away going away your nose.......my problem is Once in a while I get those zits that form(I think from going to the gym and just that i sweat easy) form under the skin.......usually its a big pore.........and it just leads into a large red bump.........I use avons Clear skin overnight treatment........usually takes a week for it to go down.........and leaves a mark.
  11. I have been eating the same non-inflammatory foods (mostly fish, vegetables, gluten-free grains, and berries) for the past two months and my skin was 90% clear. Then all of a sudden my entire forehead developed cystic acne and within 8 hours of this my cheeks had cysts as well. The cysts were red and my face felt itchy like when I used to eat high fructose foods like apples and pears. I was able to pinpoint that the only thing different in my routine was that I took 8 200 mg Ibuprofen pills ov
  12. I have had severe bacne for about five years now. The first outbreak came when I was 14 and I had no idea what to do. As I remmeber I used useless over the coutners like clearasil. As a result I have big white keloid scars on my back and shoulders. Last year I was lookong on this website for a way to beat bacne and came across the head and shoulders regimen. I tried it and it worked great to clear up a particularly bad patch. After I cleared I used it sporadically, when i could be bothered. Thi
  13. Hi all. So I was on accutane back in 2013 with great success. However, back in November I had a breakout that was a little worse than usual. I wasn't too worried because I tend to get these in a very minor form still a week or so before my time of the month. However, at the same I had been to see a doctor because I was having issues with painful periods, bad PMS etc and she recommended that if I wanted a natural solution I should try Evening Primrose Oil. I started taking these with grea
  14. Which one is more effective in terms of helping the skin? All I know is that non-fermented cod liver oil (Carlson's Cod LIver Oil capsules) is way less expensive.
  15. It's my first day of taking Claravis... So this is my first attempt at keeping a record of my newest fight against acne... I'm a 30 year old woman who has dealt with acne since puberty. It was really terrible during middle and high school, but by college I was on birth control consistently and it really evened things out for many years. The problem is that in the last 8 months or so, my acne got really bad. Breakouts around my jawline and ears were especially terrible, and I'd never dealt with t
  16. 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
  17. Hi, I hope this isn't too long, but please read and try to help me! So my acne is mild-moderate, mostly with small red forehead acne and maybe a few small white bumps or occasional red pimple on my cheeks. Last week, I realized that my skin was getting really clear. I had been taking a multivitamin for a while, and just started taking fish oil (Omega 3). I was also doing the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask pretty often. So by two weekends ago my skin was almost perfectly clear... and I a
  18. I just wanted to update anyone interested in holistic methods for acne what I have been doing recently. I learned about Arachidonic Acid (AA) which is highly inflammatory and what Omega 6 is converted to in the body. AA metabolizes into all the inflammatory compounds; especially leukotrienes and prostaglandins. I learned that you need to redirect how your body deals with PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA's) towards the anti-inflammatory compounds. I realize that there is a balance. We already kn
  19. after hearing my sons blood test was ok from the lab, the derm called and said his cholesterol has gone from 120 to 215 and asked me to lower his dose from 80mg a day to 60mg. However since I had already lowered his dose to 60 mg myself ( and notified them of it !! so they should already have known it was lowered grrr) i am lowering it again to 40mg per day for the next two weeks. My son drinks about a gallon of milk a day, so I went out and got him low fat organic milk and he's only allowed
  20. Alright, so I'm only 19, but the reason I'm posting this in the Adult Section is I believe this is a more adult problem. It's gonna be a long post, but I'd read it cause it might help you out. But first, let me give you guys a timeline. So in September I shipped off for Navy bootcamp and and within a week of being there broke out like crazy. I've never really had acne in my life an sir was everywhere; my back my face my chest. It was bad. Got outta bootcamp, and instead of it getting better,
  21. I've had acne for about four years now, since I was 15. Years ago, I used to get acne on both my cheeks and my forehead area. My acne has always been pretty much mild, I usually only have 1 - 2 moderate sized pimples on my face at a time. If it's a bad breakout maybe 4. However, now, it seems that my acne's changed. I rarely break out on my forehead anymore. The last time I had a pimple there was five months ago, and before that pimple, the last one was five months before as well. In the pas
  22. Since I was 16 my skin has been very oily, dry, and I've had lots of minor acne, I'm 17 and a half now. Some of it has led to permanent scarring. My acne now consists of a lot of white heads, black heads, and these small papupes I send a link to show that they look like http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-tre...acne-dictionary I've tried organic skin care, supplements (fish oil), normal skin care products, honey, aloe vera, oils like jojoba and vitamin E, etc. What I've noticed is that most m
  23. I only let cool water run over my face for a few seconds in my morning shower yet the next day my skin is still dry. This problem seems to only affect my face. I want to take any supplements which will increase my sebum production. I'm starting fish oil with omega 3 today, what else is there?
  24. Hello everyone, I just have a few questions for anyone that is interested in helping me out. To give a little bit of background information: I eat a paleo-based diet (lean meat, vegetables, fruits, some dairy here and there, seeds nuts - so, no gluten, only little bit of rice, little bit of corn - also I drink occasionally, trying to stick to wine and beer). I exercise daily, in the form of olympic lifting and crossfit-based workouts. I drink coffee daily. I take some vitamins (Vitamin A, B5 (
