    Starting My Dairy Free Diet

    After lingering on some of these forums and researching the effects that dairy can have I decided 2 days ago that I would go 100% dairy free. I have suffered from acne since I was 12, and I am 19 now, that's 7 long years of not feeling confident with my skin. I have tried everything under the sun, antibiotics, antibiotic cream, going on the pill, all the cleansers scrubs facials that you could think of and NOTHING has worked significantly for me. I am about to turn 20 and I would just love to

  3. For the last 5 years I've been constantly struggling with bad acne. i've felt hopeless, fearful, ugly, unlovable. Lately i've been fantasizing about a place i could wake up every morning and feel accepted by my self and those around me. I know its a pipe dream. but what if there was a place were people could come to vacation or to receive therapy or go through accutane treatment or any type of skin treatment around other people who are going through the exact same thing. a place of tolerance, l
  4. Can someone here point me to any research that has been done on the acne-gluten connection? What would really be nice is an extensive poll done on acne.org by those who've gone gluten-free. I don't have any of the digestive symptoms, for example, but have discovered that those foods with the most gluten give me the most breakouts. But I'm still on the fence about it because of the difficulty of isolating it: foods with high gluten tend to have a high GI; gluten is in practically everything
  5. Hey, heads up that Clear Skin Weekend is giving away free boxes of the Clear Skin Weekend kit, which is an educational acne kit that gives people with a step-by-step checklist to eliminate acne. From the company blog: With the kit, you get a copy of the Clear Skin Weekend Guidebook, one honey facial wash and one moisturizing tea tree oil. As an extra bonus, the Clear Skin Weekend kit comes with a free aloe vera plant (the acne guidebook teaches you how to use the plant for acne scars and do-it

    Day 107!

    So I have been completely acne free for like 2 weeks now. Ive been using the Bio Oil every day and Im starting to see results from that with my acne scars. its making my skin super hydrated and not oily suprisingly. I switched my face wash to Giovanna Dtox and I dont really know how I feel about it yet as it isn't as sudsy as my Basis Cleaner clean face wash but the Giovanni face wash has activated charcoal and goji berry so it sounds good to me. Oh and it has volcanic ash too. I even put t
  7. I folow my the 28 day acne-free diet program, take the appropriate nutritional supplements and use recommended topicals. Avoid coffee, excess alcohol and tobacco, as well as sugary and starchy foods. Exercise in moderation, practice stress-relieving and relaxation-inducing techniques and give yourself the gift of a good night’s sleep. I have this e-book in pdf somebody knows how to open it in word and copy here ? PM effect: <3 <3 <3 my boyfriend upload my all t
  8. Hey Guys I'm beginning my vitamin b5 trial next week by starting on just 500mg and then working my way up to 10 grams. I've read a lot about Dr. Leungs theory on pantothenic acid and also other peoples reviews on them using the vitamin which tend to be all good. The only scare I have about it is hair loss, the thought of my hair just falling out gives me shivers and I want to try my best to make sure it doesn't happen. Has anyone got any tips to make sure this doesn't happen or any vitamin
  9. I am now currently 18 years old and graduating high school next month. I started developing, most got slapped across and straight in the face with acne in the beginning of 6th grade. Now, 6th grade was extremely different than it is now. Hardly any girls wore make up. It was only worn for those little school dances. Unfortunately, I felt like I had to wear cover up/concealer/foundation at the age of 11 or 12. Ever since then I have been struggling and struggling with acne for years. At one po
  10. Hello you all, let me introduce myself and my experience to you. I am writing this so it may help some people like myself who have been battling with consistent breakouts and acne for so long we could remember! I will cut the story really short and sweet, because no one really likes a long winded post I guess? Not me definitely haha! Ok so, I got my first breakout at the age of 13, the age where teens fall in love, have fun and horrible school times. it was really bad for me as I got oily ski
  11. Hey all! After having acne since 14 and now being 19 and in college, I'm still...well frustrated! I've taken lots of pills, and done any diets. Right now I am paleo, soaked beans and legumes. However, I just made the insulin, magneisum, chromium, defficency connection, and really think that makes SO MUCH SENSE! But I don't wanna post about it until i'm 100% clear. My problems: 1.) I cannot for the life of me POOP! I eat so much fiber. Talking atleast 30 grams. Drink water all day! And n

    Halfway Through Week Two

    So I posted about how my weekend binge sent me into a breakout. After that day I had one more pimple barely begin to form and it was zapped with a little acne medicine (which is rare lol). I also popped and cleaned/treated the biggest zit I got on my left cheek. I did that last night and it looks much better this morning. I have been dairy free, once again for 3 days (this is my 3rd day, so two full days), and once again, the redness and inflammation I received over the weekend has drastical
  13. Hi, I don't know if this topic has been brought up before but I didn't find it. To all of those who have had Acne and got rid of it, even if it's just for a short period of time and then it came back, what did it feel like for you? Was it as good as you hoped? Was there anything unexpected you felt? Was it worth everything you went through or did you just move on the the next issue in your life? I haven't got rid of my skin issues yet so I wonder what it would be like if I did?
  14. Hello fellow acne victims. For years I have suffered with this shit on my face and for years I have cried myself to sleep. I have tried all creams and all that other bull shit derms give out nothing helps. I'm by no means religious but thought I would give praying a shot because why fucking not. I have recently been praying to Satan every night offering him my soul and my families souls for the exchange of clear skin. The next day I noticed my skin was not forming new zits and within 3 months al

    Before and After Transformation

    From the album: I can't believe I've found a cure

    I've had bad acne since I was about 15, I'm now almost 25. It started as 'bad acne' and moved onto cysts and puffiness, horrible painful lumps under the skin, millions of whiteheads, blackheads, postules, you name it. It felt like a never ending trauma no matter what I did to try to stop it. Treatments I tried and their success rates, from least helpful to most: (I've left out the most trivial things like getting a full nights sleep, drinking lots of water and taking your makeu

    Wai Diet Thread

    Hi everyone! I created this thread so that you can post your experiences with Wai Diet. There is a pinned thread for Paleo Diet, so I'd like to ask moderators to pin this thread too, please! I've been on Wai Diet for 9 months and I've been 99 to 100% clean since week 3. Before, I had moderate acne, with lots of inflammation. I used to have between 20 and 40 pimples, full of pus, spread all over my face. Notice that I burned my whole face and frontal neck 2 years ago (I'm 20 btw), wit
  17. Hello acne.org. Before the last few days, I've been dealing with severe acne since I was 15, I'm 18 now, and after a long; frustrating battle with acne, my face is finally clearing up. Please read my story below: I was 16 years old when I noticed my mild acne was not so mild anymore. It was scattered all throughout my face and jawline. It got to the point where I was embarrassed to be seen by people, so I decided to see my dermatologist. Keep in mind that ever since I started getting acne at a
  18. Going to get straight to topic, I have tried almost everything, but now I am clear. Here is what changed - I use fresh, clean towels over pillows when I sleep. I use organic honey on my face at night. (Needs to be organic) I cut out my multi-vitamin. (I eat anything) I don't wash my face with water, only wet a towel and rub off honey gently in the morning if needed. (With clean towel) This helped me a tonne, although I still wasn't clearing at a good rate.. Until I
  19. Disclaimer I have successfully healed my acne with the methods I will go on to describe. I do not claim that these methods will work for anyone else, however, I feel that I owe a lot to this forum, which has not only supported me throughout some difficult times, but its posters have provided me with much of the insight and information that has lead me to healing my acne. Finally, this post is not preaching that natural methods are the only route to take; and I do not judge those who choose to
  20. For the past couple years I have been washing face once a day at night with BP and using an oil free moisturizer with spf after. In the morning I just splash face with water. Simplifying my skin routine was definitely beneficial to me. I used to use like 4 or 5 steps two or sometimes three ties a day until I realized the having a squeaky clean face was actually causing more harm than good. The moisturizer I have found to work for me was proactiv oil free moisturizer with spf 15. It doesn't rea
  21. Hey! So I finally saw a really good health place and did a really amazing (yet expensive) test, which I see my new nutritionist at every week. Basically I have a leaky gut from an infection, and I've been given a bunch of healthy natural tablets to take to fix all of that and in turn, cure my acne. Also figured out that I am most likely intolerant to Dairy and Gluten. Next Wednesday I'll be visiting my nutritionist to start the healthy diet food plan to follow. (For now she said to focus on
