  1. So I recently went to my dermatologist yesterday and my mom asked her if certain foods like dairy, eggs, chocolate, sugar will trigger acne? And the dermatologist said no. And with that, my mom and dad have now been forcing me to eat foods like eggs, noodles, milk because they said its good for your body. I've been on a regular diet for almost a year now which consists of brown rice, spinah and fish and it has gotten rid of my acne. Now all of my hard work on losing weight and getting rid of acn
  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. 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
  4. 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..

  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Hello everyone, I for the most part have good skin. I started getting cystic acne starting i don't know when. I went to dermatologists and they would prescribe retin-a, tazorac, and aczone. Last year it took almost a whole year for retin-a to finally make a change. my skin was perfect. Until it wasn't. I got off it and my skin was doing great. Which made me happy cause I no longer want to take medication or use medicated creams. Now Im breaking out terribly on my cheeks. The lady that was doin
  12. 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
  13. Hey Yal! New to this forum. I am having such a hard time trying to find a skin care regimen. This week has been the worst week for me, I have the most painful pimples mostly around my chin and cheek area and 2 painful pimples on my forehead. It is hormonal acne. Since the age of 13 I been breaking out. Not only do I have a oily T zone, but my cheeks and jawline get dry in the winter. I have recently been breaking out on my neck as well, but that's not anything new. I don't suffer from
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. So I just finished a 5 month course of Accutane. I was on 60mg for 2 months, and the last 3 were 80 mg. I have to say it was horrible at first, i had huge disgusting breakouts that were so embarrassing. It was hell for about 3 months. My face slowly started to clear but throughout my treatment it has never been completely clear which has been disappointing. Now I am done and have just 2 large pimples on my face. otherwise I am completely clear and I love it. I just have a couple of questions
  18. 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,
  19. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the best and 10 being the worst) how would you rate your acne?
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. Hello everyone, welcome to my first post. This is for me to track my progress as I make changes to my lifestyle and diet inorder to clear my acne for good!! I normaly get spots on the temples of my forehead, along the jaw and on the lower parts of my cheeks. It gets really, really red and just looks so bad.
