  1. Hey there. My name is Emma. I am 22 years old and live in London, England. Please support me in my experiment I will live on a whole foods, organic, vegan, high-carbohydrate diet for 3 months. I will track my nutritional info on CronoMeter. I will document my progress and experience so we can all learn from it. PURPOSE We can research journals, watch youtube and read the forums until we're blue (or red and lumpy) in the face. Only we, ourselves, can truly learn from experience. So here
  2. Hello everybody My name is Nina, I have been studying natural health and lifestyle yor many years with a focus on how stress/ food / exercise/ etc. affect our skin and what we can do to heal our skin and our bodies. I'm right now working on developing a programme which would include information on everything lifestyle related to heal your skin and why it is so difficult etc. I have a few questions and I would really appreciated it if you could answer some or all of them. Have you ever pa
  3. 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
  4. Guys that's my first post here and i want to share my experience with you so i can help anyone who struggled with acne like i did. For the past few years i always had acne on my cheeks it wasn't severe it was barely seen but still i wasn't satisfied and was trying to get rid if it,looking at my skin back then i had the perfect skin and what's ironic i didn't like my skin and saw that tiny pimple a big deal not until 8 months ago that my face erupted in cysts on my chin and cheeks and forehead a
  5. So when I was 16, I decided to find the root cause of my acne. I was convinced it was masturbation within my first two weeks of self testing. So all the way up until I was almost 18, I was tormenting myself trying not to masturbate. I broke down and masturbated a lot. When I was 18, I researched, and remembered my severely unhealthy diet I had when I was little. Then I remembered how acne came when I was 11. It turned cystic when I was 12 and started masturbating, which is what threw me of
  6. Hey! So I did research and found articles saying exercise is good and bad for Leaky Gut. They found athletes varied, but often had bad bacteria and their gut, however people who exercised often get a boost in their gut health. I take it diet, and over exercising probably plays a role. I also read that intense exercise can decrease blood flow to the gut and intestines resulting in negative affects. If you have any info on this, please share. Also, please share anything you know abo
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Hey guys, need help! If you don't wanna read my messed up story, skip to the bottom questions. So I got a prick test for food allergies/sensitivities. the doctor was pissed off cuz he said he didn't think food had anything to do with my health issues. The results came back and I was right. He was still mean about it. So the results said i was highly sensitive to soy and a lot of other stuff. It said I was barely sensitive to eggs and not sensitive at all to oats. I ate eggs and oats
  10. Hey guys! I'm completely aware of how detrimental dairy products are for the skin and almost always try to steer clear of them. Earlier today, I discovered that Bio-Yogurt (natural) had been put in my dinner and I did a little bit of research on it, and several sources seems to say that bio-yogurt is the only dairy product that is beneficial for the skin due to it being probiotic. I'm really confused about whether it's going to make my acne worse or better right now. Do any of you guy
  11. 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
  12. Hey guys I'm new to this Site and having been browsing over a lot of Posts..this forum seems like a great resource as well as support community for all of us who unfortunately are burdened with skin problems. Anyways a quick bio of myself is that I'm a 21 year old male who just started on accutane with a daily dosage of 60 mg..20 in the morning and 40 in the evening. My opening question is what would you guys suggest I eat with my pills. I have read that a high fat meal will help with absor
  13. Hello! I'm new! I've just started my third course of accutane, starting on 30mg per day for 4 weeks and will probably be upped after that. Right now I am completely reliant on the pill Dianatte (Co-cyprindiol), I don't have one spot right now other than whitehead/blackhead type bumps which never go away! but I can't begin to tell you how bad my skin is when I'm not on this pill. I have the oiliest skin I have ever seen on anyone, to be honest I would be so shocked if even one person on
  14. First of all, i woud like to say that being an acne sufferer, i totally understand the pains, feelings and other several emotions which effect to our daily life activities. It took me 4 years plus to find a cure which i can say I found a cure to acne. I read this forum and learnt a lot. So, I decided to make an account and give back to this forum for what I have learnt these years. Long stroy to short, I got the first acne on 2009 which was severe. I had no experiences so my sister brought m
  15. Another reason behind increasing food allergies: imbalanced gut flora and lack of good bacteria to help with proper digestion of food. Of course, we here on this forum already know all this, but now there's scientific research to verify these connections. This particular study (link below) suggests that the good bacteria that antibiotics kill, such as clostridia, can act as a barrier between the allergen and the bloodstream and therefore prevent allergic/ histamine reactions. A lot of people
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Hi everyone, my name is Lydia. I am an almost seventeen year old female with what I would consider to be moderate acne. I have struggled since the age of 13 with persistent breakouts, excessively oily skin and clogged pores- trying every product under the sun in hope of finding a miracle cure. Unfortunately I still haven't found one. Although my skin is considerably better than it used to be, I still feel plagued with self-consciousness and have major self-esteem issues. I have decided to take
  20. What are your "safest" menu items for Mexican, American, Asian, and Italian restaurants? I almost never eat out these days, so I'm usually at a loss when it comes to ordering at restaurants. I have some important social functions coming up and I have to have formal work dinners at several restaurants. So I can't avoid it....what do you recommend I order in each of these restaurants? Also, drink suggestions as well...not soda, alcoholic ones...usually I go with vodka-based, but I'm not sure what

    So here we are. Almost two years I've been apart of the Acne.org communtiy and I still haven't found my turning point. There have definitely been some ups, and obviously some downs. I really thought I was starting to understand my skin though. I thought I knew what worked on it, and what didn't. I thought I was following the rules. But now I just don't know anymore. My skin has gone from being oily and getting random, unpredicable breakouts all over my face. To becoming more dry and senitive, bu
  22. 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
  23. Hello there, I am a longtime lurker and set up this account to share my story. I am a 30 year old female, and have been dealing with what I thought was hormonal, adult-onset acne for the past several years. I have an eating-disordered history, largely the result of attempting to avoid foods that seemed to trigger my acne. I have been vegetarian for 10 years, vegan most of those (including at present). I have a degree in holistic health, and was a raw foodist for a year. My acne went
  24. Simple question. Sounds like a dumb one but recently I went on holiday and was eating rubbish the whole time and didn't get one single break out the whole time. Literally once I started my healthy eating again, I started breaking out. Anyone else had any experience with this?
  25. So, from my research, these are the foods to go for to help get rid of acne. Please feel free to tell me anything that you think is good for acne that I can add to my list, or anything that is actually triggering that I should take off Honey Ginger Cinnamon Green tea Rooibos tea All fruits Berries Sweet potato Green-leafy veggies (e.g. spinach, kale) Nutmeg Fish Oil Oatmeal Lemons Turmeric Extra-virgin olive oil
