  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. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Hey, cutting to the chase, i've had acne forever. Mostly mild, but now it's pretty bad. On my forehead and scalp, i get big, hard lumps that take around.. 2 months to go away!! Where my hair sits on my face i get ALOT OF WHITEHEADS, i wash my hair everyday with a tea tree shampoo. I've tried it all. Aleo, BP, everything :/ My current regemen is: Morning Sensative face wash Lemon juice Salactic acid 2% face pads Skinoren A skin clearing moistorisor Night Sensative face wash Face mask with bak
  20. Almost every single food that I look up on here has some way of causing acne, I have been eating fruits and vegetables all week and drinking lots of water and de-caffeinated green tea, along with seeds and some fish. However I do not have a car yet, I am 18, my mom is very busy and does not have the time to go shopping everyday for food. I have a lot of food in my house but basically everything "aggravates acne" including cheerios, nutri grain bars and meat/eggs. It is not fair I am always h
  21. Hi, Ghost here. I've been stalking these boards for a while now reading everyone's logs and have decided to do my own. Let me tell you a little about myself; I'm 18 years old, now while I've suffered from the occasional zit or pimple since I was 12, I have never had more than one at a time. Then VOILA! a couple of months ago I started breaking out pretty badly. ((No, I haven't changed my diet, or any other part of my lifestyle)) The only thing I can figure is that it is from stress
  22. Hey everyone So my regimens doing me okay, but I'm not seeing the full results I'm really wanting. It's really frustrating. I need a regimen that can help takle all of my problems Current skin problems: dry skin, redness, unevenskin tone, red marks, clogged pores, few random pimples and a few blackheads Current regimen: cerave cleanser, redness clearing serum, finacea, aha enhanced lotion, cerave cream and green tea mask on spots Stuff I have avaible; differin .1 cream, aczone, sodium sulf
  23. After posting my blog post (which I will paste in below), I realized that I have no interest in blogging, LOL, and pretty much deserted it. I think I'd have better accountability at not picking and being good to my skin if it's daily/weekly/whatever thoughts quickly jotted down than via a blog post. So, here goes. This was my first post from Feb 3rd: I'm so not a blogger, but I wanted to keep track of what works/doesn't work in my fight to beat adult acne. I'm a 35yo female who has had acne of
  24. Hey guys, I've been lurking here for a few weeks now and thought it would be a good time to introduce myself and get some help with papules. Before I get into my issue, id like to say a little about myself and what i do to help fight my acne. I'm 24 years old, and been dealing with acne since I was in high school. My acne seems to be more hormonal than anything, my dad had it when he was my age just as bad. It was so bad after high school that I ended up going on Accutaine and that eventually c
