  1. 4Fours

    May Regimen 2012

    It's mostly clear, fewer pimples and less severe, but the few I do have are large, red but not pustules. No current cysts, 2 blemishes on my left cheek, 1 blemish on my forehead. Healing marks between my eyebrows, right cheek, and chin. Red marks are fading from the Deming gel. What I'm doing right now, the diet and supplements is something I'd be doing if it helped my acne or not: Diet- Mostly Vegan (except for supplements), gluten-free, avoid soy, peanuts, citrus, and avoiding IgG re
  2. 4Fours

    December 2011

    I'm 95% clear... one inflamed blemish and 2 healing spots, 4 red marks. I don't want to clog up my signature with my routine, diet, etc. What's working for me right now, the diet and supplements is something I'd be doing if it helped my acne or not (fortunately, it does): Diet- Vegan, gluten-free, avoid soy, avoiding all IgG response foods (19 total) Rice protein every morning Supplements- Multi with Iron and Iodine (Iron and Iodine for thyroid) Vitamin D 5000 IU (tested low
  3. UPDATE: Unfortunately, this diet didn´t work for me. I had already followed an extremely healthy diet for three months, and I kept going for another month, but I achieved nothing, only extreme weight loss even when I ate big portions and several times a day. For me, it isn´t worth it, but I was desperate like most people here, so I tried it as a last resort. I want to say this to anyone who reads the post because I don´t want anyone to be deceived. I think healthy diet can help some people with
  4. Hey guys, I've been on this site for a while now and am finally deciding to share my journey in hopes of getting 100% clear. Quick background, I'm a 24 year old female who has suffered from acne since puberty. It started as whiteheads and progressed to cystic acne as I became older. I used to have it all over my face, chest, and upper back but after getting on birth control at 17 I've had soft clear skin on my chest and back. Currently, I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and acne on my cheek
  5. I've noticed in a lot of milk alternatives such as coconut milk, and a lot of gluten free products Xanthan Gum is listed as an ingedrient...This worries me as I've changed my diet to help combat acne, I've been attempting to research it in realation to acne but havent come across anything? Does anyone know any thing further about xanthan gum and acne?
  6. Here we go... My story is similar to so many users on here, especially those who have tried the caveman regimen, because I have been on everything (antibiotics, topicals, retinoids, Accutane, birth control, BP, medicated cleansers, vitamins, you name it) and NOTHING has worked. Everything works for a little while and then the acne comes back at some point or another. So I guess everything worked but nothing lasted. So here I am, trying to heal myself the au-natural way. Thanks to blogs like
  7. Hey everyone gonna try make this as short as possible but it is a time span of about 8 years. So my acne started when I gotpregnant, not just a little bit but I'm talking severe cystic acne on my face and back. My skin was perfect before this so I was absolutely devastated.Gave birth nursed my son for two months but could not handle how my skin looked any longer so decided to go back on birth control to help it stop. Went on yaz and my skin once again turned beautiful. Got pregnant again 2 years

    My acne looks better i try to avoid processed food but my oh my i cave in to seeds, sunflower seeds that is and coconut juice drinks.I stopped eating corn tortillas as i feel those are just garbage modified corn .... and i have seen more improvement. My menstrual cycle gives me huge pimples ahhh
  9. Hi everyone! Long story short, tried lots of thing from antibiotics to home made recipes, result was temporary. Came over this website looking for info on Accutane and similar treatments. Almost went to pharmacy to get some. But read some good reviews on giving up gluten and few other minor things. So half a year ago in May 2016 stopped eating any wheat and drinking beer (which I loved soooo much). My daily routine became: 1. Morning/evening micelle water cleansing. Also added some eye d
  10. Hi everyone, just wanted to see if I could get some input from you. I 'm a 27 year old female, and all through puberty I have had horrible acne. This was eventually treated with a couple of cycles of klinotab (minocyclin). Ever since I was about 19 years old I've been practically acne-free, with the odd breakout during that time of the month. In january I found out I'm allergic to quite a lot of foods (including gluten, eggs, mushrooms, lactose,...) and I've been off those foods sinc
  11. So, 2.5 years ago, I started my course of Accutane. I thought "hells yeah" this is going to be the end of all my acne troubles. It wasn't... I have moderate acne, which are often cysts that leave terrible scarring, as I have very pale skin. Anyway, after about 2 weeks of being on Accutane, I started to have some palpitations which lasted for a little while, enough to worry me. I have a minor heart condition, but have been told by my cardiologist that it is benign and non-life threatening. I
  12. Hi everyone, Today at my local health food store I came across a type of flatbread called lavash, made out of millet and flax seed (and added spices for flavor). I bought a pack, and it tastes delicious! I'm trying to follow the candida diet, and the ingredients seemed permissible so I thought I would recommend it to those of you with multiple food allergies or on elimination diets. Other kinds of lavash are made from wheat and flour, but this particular kind is made out of flaxseed and millet,

    i felt ugly persistent acne since i was 11 or 12 till i decided to change my diet when i turned 18
  14. I've still been using Dr. Bronner's to wash morning/night, Neutrogena Oil Free for moisture, and 10% BP for spot treatment twice a day. There haven't been any huge improvements, except maybe that some of the spots on my cheek finally dried out and the parts of my face that don't have acne on them are really beautiful and glowy. Nothing has gotten worse, either... so I guess that's a plus. haha! I did buy some organic raw local honey to use as a face wash (I couldn't find manuka) and a vial o
  15. I didn't update over the weekend and I wish I would have. Because, like I said in my first post, I was trying not to binge on weekends and what did I do?? Exactly that. We'll see over the next couple days if anything pops up because of it. So the zit on my lip got HUGE over the weekend and it's finally going down but it's still super red. The forehead bumps are finally going away too. I haven't had any new cysts form yet since starting the caveman regimen (which is HUGE because I just got
  16. I feel extra gross about my skin today. The ones on my forehead got inflamed, but the same thing happened to the ones on my chin, so hopefully that just means they're healing. I also got some whiteheads around my lip lines, which I'm honestly not surprised about because I was wearing lipstick basically everyday to try and distract people from the fact that I wasn't wearing any foundation. I really miss cheese today. That sounds like such a silly thing to say but I LOVE cheese. Grilled cheese
  17. So the tiny white bumps from yesterday are still there. Three of them got inflamed and got bigger - I'm thinking this is from me washing my face yesterday. They just want to be left alone! The cyst on my temple is pretty red and raised, which could mean any number of things. I did pretty well with my diet yesterday! (Dairy/gluten/sugar/caffeine/hard-liquor free) The only place I slipped up a bit was a co-worker offered me a 100 calorie pack of pretzels. I figured since it was such a small
  18. So I have been trying the whole no gluten and dairy thing to see if it helps with the clarity of my skin. Much to my excitement, it seems to be working! I tried to keep all other variables constant (same facial cleansing routine, same oral meds, same water intake, same exercise schedule, ect.) My old pimples are drying up and no new ones are forming. It's only been a week, but it's a good start. Contrary to popular opinion, I refuse to believe that diet and acne unrelated. Every system in the
  19. This is how I cleared my acne. Acne all starts from your digestion guys, if your body isn't properly eliminating toxins it will show through your skin. Some foods aren't meant for everybody, everyone's body is different. Like a lot of people, I found that my body did not agree with gluten and dairy. They were toxic to my body. Change your diet, change your skin, change your life. Here's a short video I made that's worth your time. The transformation is amazing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?
  20. Okay, so I find that any multi-vitamins with too many b vitamins give me acne bumps, so I started taking KIDS gummies, cause they don't have nearly as much! But the one I have been taking has 30% the daily value of iodine in one gummy, and I only take one day. Also, it has some b vitamins in it, but nowhere near 100%. Anyways, I was also eating TONS, like 3 boxes a week of the new gluten free vanilla chex cereal, which is enriched in loads of b vitamins. I would eat probably half the box in a si
  21. I'm just wondering if anybody has tried this bread : http://www.julianbakery.com/smart-carb-gf-3-promo/?gclid=CPC2iJ2ay7MCFYZaMgodgBAAxQ It contains flax seed, so it may not be appropriate for those that have adverse effects with it. I love bread so much. It would be nice to be able to make sandwiches again for convenience.
  22. Finished the summer off right. Went out to eat many times these past few days, eating whatever the f I wanted. Went grocery shopping today. Today is day 1 for me. As of today, I have two zits on left cheek drying up. A tiny one drying up on my right cheek. 3-5 drying up on my chin and two drying up on my forehead. Mind you, I ate a little bit of everything yesterday so a little dairy, gluten, nightshades, etc. Being good from here on out. I will update in a week! Pictures too! I'
  23. I didn't have acne until I was in my mid-twenties. I tried EVERYTHING to tame it. I kept my hair clean and off my face, my pillow cases clean, tried all types of different makeup to make sure I didn't have an allergy, never slept with make up on... I tried every single treatment imaginable: salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, masks, scrubs, peels, everything over the counter that you can name, ProActive, the harsh, expensive crap that my dermatologist prescribed me... I even tried washing my face
  24. Hello! My name is Haley and I'm a 21 year old female, had very little acne until age 16 or 17 but started getting worse and worse. I already wrote a lot of my story on a previous forum from nearly two years ago (with plenty of pictures) which you can see here: To sum it up, I thought my acne seemed unnatural because of the location: nothing on my cheeks, all over my t-zone and forehead. This led me to believe that it wasn't merely hormonal. Since everything I tried to treat it with seemed t
  25. Hey guys I just wanted to share this. I know it's difficult and time consuming to find good things to eat that are good for your skin and won't cause the blood sugar spikes that cause acne. This makes a good (quick) and healthy breakfast smoothie. 1/3 to 1/2 cup frozen pumpkin (I used Libby's canned for convenience and put it in the freezer overnight - fresh would be better if you can!) 1 to 2 Tbs Omega 3 fortified Peanut butter 1 cup unsweetened soy milk Dash of Cinnamon, ginger,
