  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. 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
  6. 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
  7. Okay, I have acne that has it's ups and downs. One day, I feel confident and notice a clear skin, then the next couple of days, its red and not the same. I have tried Pro-Active Clean and Clear Dan's Regimen. Dan's regimen was actually workings, for quite some time, then out of nowhere, it kinda stopped. So, my father bought me Murad. 30 dollars isn't bad for a month and I have heard some good things about it. The only thing is the "purging" process, week 2/3. So, I am gonna keep
  8. Hello All, First of all, I would like to introduce my skin's current condition: it is Super Oily, moderate whiteheads around cheeks, chin, and hair line and blackheads around t zone. This regime is consisted of ACV as toner and morning cleanser and Veggie Smoothie Everyday! I have decided to start a completely new post because for the past month I have been on Dan's regime with 2.5% BP, and my skin has not been improving much. Also BP dries my skin out so much and makes my complexion look dull.
  9. In one capsule. But it also contains soy isoflavones which can help or hurt depending on your particular hormone issue. http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-CellBooster#ProductDetails Just thought a few people might be interested.
  10. Has anyone ever tried Boots No7 skin products. They have a "beautifully balanced" collection which are all supposed to be ph balanced. The ingredients SEEM good, but I don't know much about that. They all contain zinc, some have tea tree oil, and vitamins. They have a rebalancing night fluid that moisturizes and contains zinc vitamin A green tea and shea. They have a rebalancing day gel as well...I don't think the harsh drying products are working for me..do these products sound good? or has any
  11. Hi Just wanted to re post the general part of what I've been doing. I think the other version will just take too long to read for most people. Now I'm finally acne free. In summary what I have been doing: 1. No more coffee in my diet. 2. No more dairy in my diet. 3. No more diet softdrinks in my diet. 4. No more refined flour in my diet, and I am greatly reducing the amount of bread products I am eating. 5. I bought a juicer, and have my lemon juice every single morning first thing. 6. I have
  12. Hello everyone. I have finally found the best natural possible treatment you can have to help your acne. The fact is... Diet DOES affect your acne. This is very much so true. The reason why you hear so many Doctors state that diet has no affect on acne is because the dermatology papers and research were done back in the 1960's and 1970's, and they thought diet has no correlation to food. If you ask your doctor or dermatologist what causes acne, they will likely give a vague response such a
  13. Here is an amazing infographic that shows the scientific evidence for applications of various supplements/herbs/vitamins etc. http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/play...il-supplements/ 1. The higher the bubble = the greater the evidence for its effectiveness. 2. Size of bubble = popularity 3. You might also see multiple bubbles for certain supps. These is because some supps affect a range of conditions, but the evidence quality varies from condition to condition. For example, there’s str
  14. [Maybe I should start with a little background information about myself, set the scene for future readers: I'm Kristin, 23 years old and suffering from mild - moderate cystic acne. The acne came on 3 or 4 years ago, completely out of the blue and has been a constant battle of mine since then. In this time, I've tried almost EVERY cleanser out there and a small army of different topical treatments, to no avail.] So, I'm not sure what to do anymore. I've spent the longest time convinced tha
  15. Hey guys, Sorry I'm new to this so if I'm posting on the wrong page lemme know.. Basically I'm just checkin' in to see if anyone has any miracles out there for me. I am a 21 year old in college Basically since I was 13 years old, I've had acne every single day of my life. I haven't gone a single day without it since 13. Anyways I try not to worry about it, although the past few years it has consumed my life more and more to the point where I've decided to look elswhere besides the derms, OTC s
  16. Hi all, I have been drinking rooibos since around November/December, and it's the best thing I have done for my skin. I don't get any breakouts, unless I stop drinking it. For example, a couple of days ago, I stopped drinking it and got a pimple. I started to ice it, (which helped very minimally' not much) and then I got back onto the tea. within hours, the inflammation had started to subside, and it was clearly healing, which normally doesnt happen, without the tea. it normally goes onto a
  17. Hi i'm Lewis Just recently i changed my diet to a more healthy one. Making sure i got my 5 fruit and vegetables a day, and i can say my skin has never looked so good! I have tried all sorts of medications in the past and i'm sure most of you have. Tetracyline, BP (which was appaling for me, would not reccomend) and various other creams. None of which helped. I started balancing out my diet and drinking plenty of water and have seen a significant difference in my skin. Aside from diet i use
  18. Long story short- I got an eyebrow wax while on Accutane. I know you're not supposed to get waxed but I thought hardwax would be okay. The sign in the spa said "If you're on Retin-a, antibiotics, blah blah...or Accutane, ask for hardwax." Wouldn't that indicate that hardwax was safe for Accutane? Supposedly it's gentler....:/ Anyway, I feel really stupid because my skin was ripped up. One side is much worse than the other. I expected it to scab but it didn't. This happened last night. I wok

  20. Heyy guys, Iv just bought some Fuller's Earth Clay/Powder after reading good reviews about it for oily & acne skin *sigh*.. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it?? And what's the best ingredient to mix it with to make it more powerful? Iv read that green tea is ideal? Thanks.
  21. My 8 year quest to discover the proper way to remove blackheads (and at this point I know dramatic changes can only happen long term) has yielded no successful results lol. So I would really appreciate if I could just hear of at least one individual in this community who really was able to remove most of their blackheads (my nose looks like a stippling project that I did in art class while I was a kid), and how.. Thank you so much Note: Oh yeah, so my skincare regimen is; -Cleanse
  22. The past four days, my face has been breaking out every few hours. I was a little sick and shivery the past two days, but I'm over that now. My skin is very dry, slightly itchy almost always, and my chin and the sides of my face are covered in zits. Some whiteheads will pop up semi-frequently, and then others will die out fairly frequently as well. Occasionally, some sort of toxic smell will emanate from my body. It happens at random times, but it's the strongest a little soon after I drink a cu
  23. For 24 hours, I am replacing soda with green tea. (I drink a lot of soda.) I doubt one day will make the tiniest difference in my skin. What I'm looking for is any change in how I feel at the end of the day. And if there is any change, I'm going to keep it going for a week. And still a week probably isn't enough time for it to make an impact in my skin, but I am hopeful. Wish me luck.
  24. I've never posted before, but I stalk these boards on a daily basis. I'm 25/f and JUST recently (about a week after my 25th birthday) started getting insane breakouts (for the last 3 months now I would say light to moderate, since i've seen that others out there have much more severe conditions. None the less, its all new to me and in my eyes i feel like its severe *i know its not* but its depressing to not want to look in the mirror, and to not feel pretty... ever. never thought my face
