  1. For a while I kept a food log, tracking daily what I ate and how severe my acne was. By looking at foods I ate several days before my worst acne days, I was able to identify wheat as a possible culprit. Eliminating wheat from my diet reduced my acne by about 50%! After eliminating wheat, my acne stopped fluctuating significantly in severity, making it difficult to use the food log technique a second time. However, I recently identified a food that seems to worsen my acne: Johnsonville Hot Ital
  2. I feel helpless. I am 18 and have had acne since I was 11. I'm the only one in my family with this ever. I am from the carribean. I don't think people should have to starve themselves to get rid of candida. It's really like you can't eat anything for over a year. I like fruit, and rice. I am getting a blood intolerance test soon. I believe that people with different heritages just can't stomach some things. Gluten, dairy, oranges, soy for example. Those are now found in so many product
  3. From the album: Face the Facts

    Over one year later, and I'm still excited about how well avoiding certain foods (for me, tomato, avocado, grapefruit, safflower oil, cola, pumpkin + nightshades) and taking birth control has improved my complexion. I feel comfortable enough about my skin's resiliency to actually wear make-up now... thus the picture with make-up (eye shadow, eye liner, and lip color). For the record, I wash my face only once a day now, and I have been doing so for the most since over a year ago. It's funny, beca
  4. Hey everyone! Just curious if anyone else here has an intolerance to corn. It is probably the worst intolerance to have because corn is in absolutely EVERYTHING. Can anyone relate? I have found corn in yogurt, in medication I take for anxiety/panic attacks, in most supplements, in canola oil, in dry shampoo and hairspray, makeup etc. It seems almost everything in the grocery store and anywhere for that matter has some form of corn in it since it can go by other names as well (eg. matodextrin.
  5. hi everyone, i just wanted to add a few comments about my personal story with acne. i've had low to moderate acne since i was 12, however due to psychological reasons i would pick at my pimples consistently and turn them into inflamed boils that took weeks or months to heal. i was depressed because of my skin and even wanted to die on account of it. i hated myself for being unable to keep my hands away and for being so vain in caring about my face so much. the pimples that seemed to bother me
  6. Well here is my story... I'm 25 year old woman, I've seen a dermatologist since I was 12 when I started having acne, but I was born with acne on my face. My skin has improved over the years and I take a birth control pill and my face stays relatively clear from using benzaclin and tazorac. About 3 months ago I started taking a probiotic and my skin cleared up completely (thought I had found a natural cure!) I also cut back on dairy and grains but supplemented with soy and coconut products. By th
