  1. Hi! I've had acne since the age of 11/12 spots started at age 9, I'm now 32 (female) and I have finally got to the point where I can say my acne is completely under control without any pills, contraceptives, or prescription treatments, so I thought I'd share how I did it in case it can help anyone Brief history; My acne has always been over my face, neck, back, chest, and at its worst, also over my upper arms and bum. I have not listed the topical treatments I have used in the past beca
  2. How's it going everybody! Well, I'm new to participating in this community (long time reader and site-surfer) and I need to figure something out. Recently, about 2 weeks ago, I adopted an entirely new diet; one that I hope will assist with finding the real underlying reason for my acne. A little bit of background: I've had acne since I was 13 years old - I'm 18 now and heading into college (I'm a guy by the way). At first it was mild/slightly moderate with occasional inflamed pimples. I went

I've spent a while researching and experimenting and now i have a 90 day plan to rid myself of acne once and for all! And if it works, i should feel a whole lot healthier!

  5. I have been eating the same non-inflammatory foods (mostly fish, vegetables, gluten-free grains, and berries) for the past two months and my skin was 90% clear. Then all of a sudden my entire forehead developed cystic acne and within 8 hours of this my cheeks had cysts as well. The cysts were red and my face felt itchy like when I used to eat high fructose foods like apples and pears. I was able to pinpoint that the only thing different in my routine was that I took 8 200 mg Ibuprofen pills ov
  6. Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm wondering if some of you who have gone the holistic route to clear your acne can give me some feedback. A little background on myself: Female, 29 Mild to moderate acne (high school moderate, after mild, currently back to moderate) 2011/early 2012 my skin was awesome, clear except for a couple of small TOTM spots but I was pretty much happy During this time I was using Proactiv, Benzaclin gel and Neutrogena oil free SPF 15 moisturizer Ran out of Proactiv i
  7. I am dairy and gluten intolerant and know I should cut it out, but I look at people with clear glowing skin, stuffing their faces with cheeseburgers from McDonalds, and am extremely, extremely confused!!! Someone please explain this to me. Also, I was vegan and gf for 8 months, dancing everyday and STILL had spots. Please help me if you know anything about this subject. I was wondering if childhood diet has anything to do with it? When I was younger I used to eat so much melted cheese and fr

  9. Hello. Over the last few months I've gained moderate to severe acne just on my cheeks. I'm fifteen years old male and this is devastating my social life, I quit my job and have isolated myself for the entire summer. I can't even go out without a hoodie on. I've tried every different kind of topical treatment and nothing works. So I found out about the link between diet & acne. I've been gluten free for 3 weeks because I thought that was my trigger. No results. For the last four days I've
  10. hello! i'm not sure if anyone else has this question in mind but i am in serious confusion! there are people who say white rice is poison and others who stress on a gluten-free diet. if one had to choose,which one would you choose? going by logic , white rice is bad for it raises the insulin level(sudden spike) ..for it's got high GI.whereas gluten is said to be inflammatory. so,what do u think?which one is (let's say) less harmful(or safer to carry on with)?? (my story : i have
  11. Hey all! Just wanted to get some feedback on going gluten free for acne. I've had deep cystic, hormonal acne for years and regular acne since I was about 11. The hormonal acne was controlled by spironolactone for about a year, but last fall it came back with a vengeance. Tried upping my spiro from 50 mg (maintenance dose) to 200 mg (prescribed dose)...didn't work and I started to have bad side effects. Anyway, because I have tried everything but accutane and birth control, I decided to t
  12. As from today I am going to eliminate all food sources with wheat. These include bread, pasties and those processed hot dogs and meats. After 10 days I will assess my progress.
  13. I already posted this under "Adult Acne" before I realized there was a Diet section.... Hi all, I just joined this site today. I'm 39 years old and have been dealing with acne as long as I can remember. However, the last 3 -4 months have been the worst of my life! Deep, painful, ugly cystic acne....lovely! It's taken a toll on me or sure....visibly and mentally. So, my next game plan is to get tested for gluten sensitivity. I see on the forums that some folks have tried this. I got blood work

Deep, painful, ugly cystic acne....lovely! It's taken a toll on me or sure....visibly and mentally. So, my next game plan is to get tested for gluten sensitivity. I see on the forums that some folks have tried this. I got blood work done a year ago and it came back negative, but I've been researching and found out
  15. There is a remedy for Hidradenitis Suppurativa. First the facts, this info is found in some hidradenitis forums & I found it in Celiac and Gluten Free forums – Hidradenitis is caused by antibodies to gluten. Somewhere I read that the tiny tubing that leads from the apocrine sweat glands get clogged. I think the gluten antibodies and bits of gluten we eat combine together and clogs these tubing and that starts the problem because the glands continue to produ
  16. I know that you get various food craving due to vitamin deficiency. So in order to avoid that I take vitamin supplements, eat dairy free and partially gluten free, try to have a big variation of ecological products... I eat beef, chicken, salmon, eggs, a lot of veggies not too much fruits, mostly berries. Like really, I am proud of my diet and feel as active and energized as never lately. But what the hell with the cravings?? I tried many healthy alternatives of sweets, like raw chocolate with
  17. Hi, I'm 17 and male and I have moderate acne (mostly on my cheeks, white heads and red spots) I really need to cure this, it is destroying my life. I have had acne since i was 13 I'm currently trying a no wheat and no milk diet but after 3 weeks i see no improvement. I miss eating wheat and dairy foods.. Does diet actually affect acne? I eat all organic. Also, is it alright if i eat wheat without gluten? Or should i eliminate all wheat? I use Desert essence face wash and a natural alo
  18. So today is the day that after alot of consideration i start accutane. Mainly making this log for my own benefit so i can track stuff easier down the line but maybe it will be of use to someone else on here so here we go! Background Acne runs in the family. My mum especially had a big battle with cystic acne right through her teens to early twenties. So it was no surprise that i have problems with Acne. I have had it ever since i was 12/13 which was just teenage spots which i controlled with o
  19. Hello everyone, I just have a few questions for anyone that is interested in helping me out. To give a little bit of background information: I eat a paleo-based diet (lean meat, vegetables, fruits, some dairy here and there, seeds nuts - so, no gluten, only little bit of rice, little bit of corn - also I drink occasionally, trying to stick to wine and beer). I exercise daily, in the form of olympic lifting and crossfit-based workouts. I drink coffee daily. I take some vitamins (Vitamin A, B5 (
  20. I have a friend who is very sensitive to gluten, soy and perhaps corn. He would like to see if he can buy turkey or chicken that has not eaten these foods since many Celiacs claim they have a reaction to such products. I called Whole Foods and the butcher there told me that all chickens and turkeys there are fed a staples of soy and corn. I double checked this information by calling the suppliers and they confirmed this. Anyone know of brands that are only grass fed? Chickens that are all
  21. For those sensitive to gluten or grains, there has been hardly any discussion about avoiding eggs from grain-fed chickens and meat that comes from grain-fed animals. I did some research and found that the topic is hotly disputed. From my own experience, I do know two different individuals with food sensitivities who swear they cannot eat the eggs or meat of animals fed grain. The friend with a corn sensitivity tells me how all her corn sensitivity symptoms return if she nibbles on an egg or
  22. I am currently in that painful stage of trying to remove gluten from my diet. It's something I'm quite committed to as I've noticed a huge improvement on my skin as a result after only a few weeks. I actually posted in another thread that I have quite intense acne on my scalp that has been with me for years, and it was mostly gone after a week and a half while doing this. The problem is that sometimes I'm finding gluten unavoidable as I don't always cook my own meals, or I'm put in a position w
  23. Can someone help me figure out what is going on with my skin and what type of skin do I have. In the last two years something happened to my chin. I have large pores all over my face but the chin as slightly smaller ones. Every couple of days I get this weird grainy texture all over. I have to literally take the edge of my tweezer and flick out a small grain or pebble out of tons of pores. What are these and is my skin oily, dry or dehydrated? I cant go one day without these building up..So
  24.
