  1. Dear friends, It's been 5 years I haven't logged in to this forum. I am now 25, I still have some acne, but I can say it is under control and not impacting my social life anymore. Like many others on this forum I achieved it by experimenting on myself. I have also tried several drug products, but I have found all my solutions in the holistic approach: mostly with food, sleep, sport, psyche. I believe in the holistic approach, I believe it is underrated in the medical community, It lacks
  2. Hello there! I went on a plant based diet about 3 months ago mainly for acne reasons but wasn't seeing results after the 3 months, not to mention feeling extremely fatigued morning and night, and having to eat insane amounts of food to not get a stabbing pain in my stomach from hunger. That was especially bad, because it just would not go away no matter how much I ate. Anyhow, after not getting the benefits I wanted from the diet, but rather the opposite, I left. Now I'm back
  3. Hey Guys, I have Mild -> Moderator acne, but my skin is SO ugly! It's filled with scars from cystic acne and there's so much discoloration. My skin tone isn't even at all! Anyways, there use to be a time where my acne was "meh", I would pick at it and it wouldn't scar. But ever since I tried this Korean BB cream, I feel like my skin type just changed! I feel like that BB cream made my skin weak and I had a HUGEEEEEEEE breakout from it. Ever since that BB cream, my skin has never been
  4. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the best and 10 being the worst) how would you rate your acne?
  5. Hi all. I am 23 yr old male, and I have been battling acne for about 10 years. My acne is 100% for sure caused by food. Unfortunately, it is caused by a lot of foods. I notice pimples forming about 1-3 hours after eating "bad foods", and pimples can last about 5-10 days unless I eat more "bad foods" in which case the current pimples usually get some more juice and stay around longer. Anyway, this is an interesting thing I noticed. I always cook with extra virgin olive oil. I use it for dres
  6. i am currently on a low dosage of accutane (10 mg) and i will probally stop taking it in 1-2 month. i am sure that after i will finish taking it my skin will turn crazy oily again and my skin will go bad. i already noticed how my skin got abit oily after i lowered from 40 mg to 10 mg. so im desperate for a solution and i wanna try taking a food intolerance test and eliminate the bad foods for me, and see if it helps. i found out i can do a test for about 500$ for 200 different foods in s
  7. Hello everyone. I'm new here and just made an account because i've read some of these posts and this seems a good place to ask this question. I am 22 year old male and I have had acne pretty much since I hit puberty. It stopped for a while in my late teens but recently became horrible, with cysts. It was so bad at one point that I went to the dermatologist and he almost immediately said I should go on accutane because it was so bad. I refused because I don't want that in my body and have read th
  8. hey! (typing on broken tablet, will fix post later) so i was thinking about how my body only want to accept foods high in fiber, according to my sensitivity test results (fiber helps you shit more efficiently). then i remember a visit to the doctor here i found out i had chronic constipation. basically i had shit laying around my body for years. this made sens
  9. Alright, so ill just a quick rundown. Like many people here - I had TERRIBLE acne as soon as I hit puberty. My diet was shit and never made the connection. I went to the dermatologist for a few years, nothing worked, parent kept saying "It'll go away naturally", fast foreward to 2014, im now 21 y/o and its barely any better - havn't had a clear face in almost 10 years - Not a SINGLE DAY. Get on accutane, because i'de honestly rather die than continue living like this. 6 months go by, shits aweso
  10. Hey Guys, I have no active acne (except for 2 pimples) and I'm on accutane . I used to have acne.. I have a VERY healthy lifestyle, no processed food, dairy, sugar, alcohol, white bread etc. and I'm vegan. Today I ate some oats with a lot of dried fruits in it, which is filled with fruit sugar, can this affect my skin? I know it sounds crazy and totally overreacting But yeah, It was only today i did it..

    3 Foods Journey

    Changed "The Truth" to a journey, since I'm discontinuing it. Summary Basically, I had cystic acne, but finally cleared my skin by eating only eggs and oatmeal for like 2 weeks after getting results back from a skin prick test. Here are those results: Now, these results weren't very accurate and didn't test for enough foods. But oats and carrots and wheat were spot on. Mediator Release Test Now, I didn't get it yet! I'm saving money so I can order it from Florida for $495 U.S. I
  12. Hey! Diamond here, I'm a new user. Here's a little background of me. I'm a male, 17 years old, about 5 foot 10, weigh 129 and have had pesty acne since 8th grade. Before I ask for any help, let me give you a quick rundown of my skin care routine and diet. In the morning, I wash with a Christina Moss Naturals organic face wash and follow that up with an aloe vera based organic and non comedogenic mouisturizer. I don't wash again until I get home from school, and only with water. I follow the ri
  13. Hello. I have a very bad problem, and I don't know what to do. I am a male, 23, and this has been happening to me since I was about 10. Whenever I eat basically any food I develop huge, very painful and ugly white pus filled pimples. Certain foods trigger it worse than others. For example, the worst offenders are high fructose corn syrup, anything with soybean oil / corn oil, stevia / artificial sugars, natural colors / flavors, corn starch.... Basically, I cannot eat anything outside of my hous
  14. The question has been circling in my mind for a while now... is the fact I’m having more sex the reason I’m getting acne? Ill give you some background info on my situation. I’ve never had any huge breakouts for most of my life. Always had clear skin. Until I went on the implant/met my man. i hated the implant and had it removed pretty fast. They say the hormones leave your body, but I’m not sure if they have? (Could be a factor) I have been vegan for over a year, but recently gluten fre
  15. So , I think i haven proven well for myself that every single time i eat mcdonalds fries and their other food ... i get huge pimples!!! .. at first i thought maybe it could be stress because i have been a little stress but i would go a week without eatting it and my face would be so clear, and then i did a week where i ate it and bam pimples everywhere and big ones and i thought maybe to make sure i would go another week without eatting it and again face would be clear and then i ate it and pi
  16. I know food affects my acne, but I'm not sure how. It seems like if I eat a lot of anything I break out, and if I don't eat very much, I break out less. So that lead me to try a low glycemic load diet, which helps, but isn't enough. If I eat a lot of food, even if it is still in low glceymic load meals, I break out more than I would if I ate less. I can cut out certain foods and see if that helps, but I really don't think I have an allergy or anything. And if I did that, I would lose weight,
  17. Hello. I usually don't post on here much but I kind of found something interesting about my own skin and it's connection with "acne".. **This will probably be a wall of text.. So just to give a little background of myself.. Prior to turning 18, I never had a single pimple in my life. It was only after 18 did I start getting pimples and bumps on my skin which would get inflamed, and eventually cause a bit of pain. I'm 22 now and it's been quite a painful road.. Mainly because at times, this
  18. After upping my protein intake, my breakouts have lessened. Does having protein deficiency cause acne?
  19. So here recently, I've been scared to eat hardly anything because I'm worried it will break me out. There's numerous food items that I can recall having a pimple for consuming. I know for sure dairy causes me to break out, but I'm not sure about anything else. And it seems like every time I research a certain food, everyone's like, "Yup, that breaks you out. Don't eat it". What am I left to eat? I'm trying to be healthier. I wanted some whole grain oatmeal this morning, but apparently I can't ea
  20. Hi, I was wondering. How do you exactly know what food causes your acne For example: After binging on sugar how soon will something show up. Because it could also be a coincidence. Is it possible for acne to show up in 12 hours after binging on a box of sugar filled cookies? I haven't binged in so long but it was either that or doing something worse. It also seemed like nothing would improve my skin anyways so I was like screw this, I have restricted myself so long for no results. However
  21. Hi my name is Joseph and I've been a victim of acne since I was 14. My skin problems became a lot worse at 17. I started having hair loss on top of my acne but I'm here because I'm struggling really bad and I feel like acne is taking over my life. I've been eating nothing but meats cooked with olive oil and veggies. I don't eat any sugar and any dairy and I still get moderate acne on my chin(a lot), nose, and cheeks especially my left. I have a few acne hyper pigmentation in the middle of my fac

  23. Hey, This is something that I came across the other day: http://video.foxnews...tamins-useless/ What do you guys think? edit: I am not saying that it is not important to get your vitamins. I just figured that it would be intersting to post this.
  24. I have like one everyday instead of having Junk food and biscuits . I was starving yesterday and i had two will this make me break out make acne flare up ?
  25. So I saw that almost everyone started to avoid junk food and sugar to stop breaking out. Ok !! It's a good thing and I'm glad that people are more conscious about nutrition and the results of our healthy are behind our food and nutrition. But I saw that the people are afraid to eat even HEALTHY FOOD. I saw topics that users don't know what to eat even more and they avoid even the vegetables and fruits. I saw comments which say that "sugar is my biggest weakness" or "I don't know what to eat
