  1. Sooo.. just thought I'd use this as a place to track everything I'm doing for my skin. If I log, maybe I'll stay on track! Was doing low gi for a few weeks, my skin was getting so much better. Also started juicing a bit and taking extra supplements... until my best friends bday last week and my bfs bday a couple of days ago. Today, I now have about 6 new zits that just sprouted overnight. Could've been anything really.. lIquor, cookies, burgers, brownies, pizza, etc. I'm starting new

    Day 8 & 9

    I can resist everything except temptation. (Wilde) Skin is on the up and up. I have been a little mischievous, I've had chocolate (shock, horror, shock). But such is the price you pay for going home. I think that, and the absurd amount of compliments one receives from relatives. They've all commented on how 'healthy' my skin and hair looks. I'm happy they noticed. However, there is such a thing as too many compliments, and my family kind of crosses that line. It comes across as fawning. Exce
  4. So furious, spent ages writing my blog and it just disappeared!! Going to shorten this entry now. My skin has shown improvement in week 2. The original breakout has gone but a new one has taken it's place. Although not as severe, it's still quite bad. I have had several whiteheads, big red spots around my mouth and a hard cyst under my jaw. My skin overall is very red, tight, dry and flaky, as if I've had a chemical peel. Not a good look! Makeup definitely doesn't work but I can get away wit
  5. Hello, So I just started the regimen the beginning of this week with OTC products using the Neutrogena BP twice a day. My skin did itch and I felt a slight burn but it didn't seem to have any real negative effects on my skin. Yesterday I received Dan's products and used it last night. My face was very itchy throughout the night. This morning I woke up to find my face very red but mostly contained to where the acne is (cheeks, around mouth)! Also some parts of the skin has become rough and a li
  6. I don't want to jinx my self hehe.. so I'm knocking on wood and stuff hehe.. I'm just posting so that I may be able to help some one.. Last 5 weeks were terrible.. acne.. HUGE acne was showing up on my nose.. They started in the middle of my exams.. but then refused to die.. I was on dans regimen.. but that wasn't helping as much as I would like.. I don't know what worked.. but something did.. - CVS daily face wash with tryclosan - Purpose cleansing bar - Neutrogena Tinted BP -
  7. Day One - 2/21/04 Alright, here we go! Background info: I am a seventeen year old female with mild acne. My skin is very healthy and nice in the areas that arent broken out, but my acne is not contained to any certain area. So when I do break out, it could be anywhere random and the red spots linger everywhere. I am so sick of waking up wondering where the next spot will appear and having to spend an hour putting on concealer all over. I am ready for a real change! I have tried every o
  8. After reading so many posts, I'm convinced that people with acne can practically form a minority group/nationality. We have many similarities and come from same backgrounds. I mean, let's FACE it (hahah), there are 17 million people with acne. I'm surprised we haven't started a revolution yet! Well, since most people care too much about what people think about them or their acne (I don't really care anymore), I'm still going to poke fun at my acne, and whatnot. So...we've all read about 100/8
  9. I want to recommend my customized proactiv regime to everyone! I have only used it for a few days and my acne is starting to clear up. Its time consuming to use it but so far its been worth it. These are the steps u take in order for best results while using it: Morning (7-8am): 1. Lightly rinse your face off with water 2. use proactive cleanser then rinse your face and dry 3. put proactive toner on a cotton pad and rub it on your face; let it dry for 10 seconds. 4. Rub a thin lair of
  10. so i'm really frusterated right now. im 13 going off to high school with acne all over my back. it's summer and all of my friends will be swimming, hanging out, etc. but nope, i'm going to be devoting my whole summer to getting rid of my horrible bacne. Before anyone comments saying "oh wow you're acne is light or mine is so much worse" keep in mind that i'm only 13 and i don't really like having to be able to only wear sweatshirts to school or anywhere, while like everyone else in my grade has
  11. So I'm a female, in my 20s and I suffer from moderate/severe acne. I use to have very severe acne about three or four years ago, I still think it's still severe to an extent, but not as bad as it was before. Anyway, this is what I'll be using for three months: Clean & Clear 5% BPO wash (or the PCA Skin31 5% BPO wash) Acne.org Treatment (Only at night) Acne.org AHA+ (Only apply at night 2/3 a week) BPO mask (one to twice a week) Taking: Multi+ Daily Glow Mult
  12. Hi and Thank-you for dropping by, My name is Hannah, a 22 year old female looking for allies to support each other through our difficult journey in battling acne. I had acne since my teens, but got 90% clear through changes in diet and taking supplements. I've tried from paleo to low-fat vegan, and I am still looking for what works best for me and my life style. (Of course I don't neglect traditional medicine, I've experience great results from anti-biotic topicals and dan's regime) I
  13. Hello! About 2-2.5 weeks ago, I started drinking 3-5 cups/day of green tea, as well as mixing it in with my daily moisterizer (Aveeno Clear Complection), which I apply 3-5 times per day. Over the course of 1 week, I noticed this made a huge improvement, but it was not clearing up everything. Then, I began taking Zinc (25mg/day), Vitamin B6 (100% DV), Vitamin B12 (100% DV), Vitamin C(>100%), and Brewer's Yeast (6 tablets a day w/food) in addition to Vitamin A (100% DV), which I had already be
  14. After reading about the benefits of green tea on acne, i decided to try it out. I am now drinking 3 cups of green daily and also keeping the green tea bag on my face for around 15 minutes twice a day (once the tea bag has cooled down) I've been doing this for about 4 or 5 days now and i notice that, especially after i keep the green tea bags on my face, a lot of my zits come to a head and zits that had already come to a head break. I'm also getting a number of blackheads. So my skin is not
  15. 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
  16. Well since joining this forum I have tried a few new things and my skin is getting better so I thought I would share. The first thing I learned on this site is how to gently cleanse my skin. I believe this is a very important step. Before I would be angry with my skin thinking I could rub my acne off the harder and longer I scrubbed. In turn my skin would look back at me in the mirror angrily. So now when I cleanse with my tea tree oil Castile soap I work up a lather like Dan suggests and very l
  17. 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
  18. Tried some skin care products in High school but never really stuck with them. I never used any skin care on my face towards the end of High school (upperclassmen days). When I started getting self-conscious about my face I went to Wal-Mart and bought a Neutrogena face wash and the first time I used it it peeled my face off (above my cheek) so I returned that. The second face wash I used was MD formulations facial cleanser(12% Glycolic Compound), started using it and noticed my face would get re
  19. Hi, I've been learning about the links between hormones and acne. Just want to make sure my understanding is correct. My understanding: - both androgen and estrogen can cause acne - anti-androgen includes: green tea, saw palmetto, nettle root, spiro - anti-estrogen includes: progesterone (is it anti-androgen as well?), vitex, evening primrose oil Is my understanding correct? I'm male and has a bald spot. In this case can I assume that my acne is caused by androgen? And if
  20. I made a toner with bottled lime and lemon juice, ACV, and a little sliced cucumber. I diluted the mix with about 50/50 with water. The mixture was made with equal parts. I made this because I have some scarring and red marks, not to mention some active spots. Since I heard all of these worked pretty good I thought why not make a non-irritating toner and when I applied it a couple hours ago it didn't sting. My regimen is clindamycin lotion and retin-a 0.1 cream. I also started to drink gre
  21. hi all,im an ex-acne sufferer from malaysia . first of all , did any of u know how acne can be related to sinusitis? because here in malaysia we strongly believe that sinusitis does cause acne .In addition,here when an acne sufferers dont react with topical treatments or oral antibiotics , we wont use accutane(because its harmful) but we will find sinusitis treatment and most of us will get a clear face when sinusitis treatment. im not talking about my own experience because i only use retin-A,g
  22. Helloo everyone Just to start off, I'm 13 years old and have moderate acne. I get zits here and there, but now a days theyre staying for longer than they usually do. So I've gone through a number of treatments (Murad -.-) , and lately I think i've found something that's worked for me . So here is my daily facial cleansing...washing....whatever you want to call it routine: First I use Pond's cleansing and makeup removing towelettes (with vitamin E, chamomile and green tea) Second I wash my han
  23. so this is slightly unrelated to acne but it is..well...i drink green tea daily now, like 2-3 cups a day, for the purpose of its calming properties (i drink caffeine free organic green tea) and for the purposes of its relation to helping acne, etc. but i recently weighed myself and i am down to 130. i haven't been that weight in a long while. like prolly since 9th grade of high school (im a junior in college now). i haven't REALLY changed my routine. i mean...i have lowered portions of food a bi
  24. Hi, I've been suffering from pretty persistent acne for about the last 5 years, i generally get very large nodules/pimples that last for about 2 weeks but leave scarring ive been using differin gel the last couple of years which has helped a little bit with the scarring but i still tend to get new pimpkles every 2 or 3 days. Interestingly i noticed my breakouts are more severe after eating foods such as chocolate, pizza, cheese etc. Although i initially wondered if i had some sort of food se
