  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Hello! I am pretty new to this site and cystic acne. I had a bad outbreak about 2 years ago. It was a cluster of about 5 cysts all in the same area on the side of my chin. After a month on Tetracycline they either went away or surfaced so I could drain them. I have had a few on and off since then but usually small and I am able to bring them to the surface with a hot compress after a few days, drain them and let them heal. Now, I am on day 12 of having two very large cysts on my chin. The are p
  4. okay, so i finally got my acne under control. it has completely subsided from what it used to be. i'm on spironolactone right now, and thats the only medication that i'm taking right now. my derm is trying to put me on accutane, but based on what i've been reading on these boards, accutane does nothing for red marks. i've tried absolutely everything, green tea, ACV, potatoes, lemon juice, you name it. i think it's time to start doing some chemical peels. i will upload pics soon. the marks are al
  5. hello everyone. i have posted a couple of regimen logs here before but have failed to complete them all. but this time i know im gonna stick out my regimen and hope for the best. MY BACKGROUND: typical teenager, broke out 8th grade, got some topicals dried out my face, then got progressively worse. when i was in 10th grade i got a v beam treatment and that helped alot, but then i put all of this mario badescu shit that irritated my face. PROBLEMS: prevention is key! whenever i get a pimple it
  6. Hi all I have had genetic acne since the age of around 12, i am now 23, i have tried every antibiotic from my gp, every wash, topical solutions, every healthy eating plan, water consumption, green tea, pantothenic acid, ive visited a nutritionist, taken every herbal pill and vitamin and zinc, nothing like that cleared my acne... My GP said when my acne was at its worst that none of these things would clear my acne as it was too severe. I had acne on my face, back, chest, shoulders, arms. My

  8. hey, guys. i've been using tretinoin in gel form for like 3 months, but with breaks, because i couldn't handle peeling in public. and applying makeup was horrible. first i used 0.01% in combo with hidroquinone, mainly because of hidroquinone, and then i noticed my chin cleared up. i was so happy and my interest for retinoids increased. i switched from 0.01 to 0.25%, and i used for a month, with breaks also, my skin was peeling, extremely dry, but looking sooooo good, so clear and even and gene
  9. Hello all! I am brand new to the forum and wanted to share my experience with Obagi Nu-Derm. I am on week 4 and am still experiencing break outs. I am close to that time of month so I am sure that plays a part. I am a 25 year old female and have been suffering from acne for the past 6 years. Within the past 6 months my breakouts have gotten better and my skin started to clear up, however there were awful scars left behind the dark scars and even deep scars. This had me completely devastate
  10. Hello everyone I think I've found something that might help. I've tried everything and that includes accutane which almost completely cleared me up, but I'm off it now and my acne is returning. For a week now I have just had a cup of green tea everymorning. My face seems significantly smoother and I have alot less whiteheads forming. Hopefully it will continue working for me. I just wanted to say it's worth a shot even if you doubt it because I did.
  11. Right, after reading over various topics, cases, stories etc about people's problems, I've decided to give you a detailed overview of what I'm doing to try and rid the acne, to see where or where not i'm going wrong. First off, I'm a 19 y/o male, I've been suffering for about a year and a half now. The spots are mainly around my chin, mouth, jowels area, but i do get them on my cheeks, forehead, between the eyes (basically it can pop up anywhere). And here's what i do to fight it: -I'm all abo
  12. A few months ago, I paid $500 for a LEAP mRT test to find my food sensitivities. It was definitely worth it and I want to share with everyone interesting tidbits I learned. Often a food sensitivity is to an entire family, not to a single food. I was sensitive to broccoli, but I had no idea that I was very sensitive to the entire Mustard Family (broccoli, cauliflower, canola oil, kale, collard greens...). I found this knowledge very helpful since I have many sensitivities. If you notic
  13. Hi everyone! I am looking for any possible way to keep my skin healthy and I saw this product and thought I'd give it a try. It was only 2 dollars, which is nice but concerns me a bit. I can't find anywhere on the container that it is non-comedogenic yet it is recommended for facial use. I wouldnt be using this moisturizer every morning/night unless it really is that good because I have some other ones that have been working great for me. I use Green Tea Moisturizer from Proactiv and Cerave M
  14. Saw this at Whole Foods recently.... has any1 used it? or brave enough to be the 1st to try? Ingredients water, Regu®-Seb (argania spinosa kernel extract, serenoa serrulata fruit extract, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed extract), cetearyl olivate and sorbitan olivate, methyl glucose, sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), green tea extract (camellia sinesis leaf extract), xanthan gum, glucose, glucose oxidase and lactoperoxidase.

  15. I was asked what I wanted as a Christmas gift, and after watching Dr. Oz, I decided to get a chemical peel to improve my skin for the new year. He recommended the Brazilian Peel sold by Sephora, but I am not interested in purchasing from them, and not sure I want to pay $78/month to keep up with it. I found it also sold on Amazon, but still decided against it. In the recommended section of the site, there was an at home TCA chemical peel that had pretty good ratings. I decided to look around som
  16. Hi - So I have been reading posts and researching products on acne.org for years but just joined. I have really appreciated everyone's posts on here and have used it as my go-to resource everytime i hear about a new 'miracle' product. My History - No acne throughout pre-teen/teen years at all. Never wore makeup (i know this sounds strange for a high school/college girl but i was fortunate enough to have clear skin and didn't need to until i started breaking out) but my diet was always horrible
  17. hello.. just joined this amazing community, so comforting to know there are others out there (like x-men).. i've been suffering from acne since i was 19.. its been three years now, and the acne has improved. initially i had very angry big bumps and it was confined only to my forehead.. then it spread to my cheeks, while my forehead cleared and in a similar fashion progressed to my chin. now my face has tiny whitish umps which are the colour of my skin and are not discernable from a distance. how
  18. So... this morning I wiped a bag of white tea on my face before going to school, hoping to reduce oil as I had read on some sites. Apparently green tea and white tea are from the same plant, though white tea is from the baby leaves, which contain more anti-oxidants. Normally, my nose area gets oily in a few hours, but even after school, it still wasn't oily. Hopefully this isn't a short term sebum reducer, like ACV. You guys should try it out, too! Edit: Sorry, this probably should have been po
  19. Hey, I'm a 17 year old male, and i've had acne since the age of about 15 (though had the occasional whitehead and such since around 13 years of age). It's really depressing me, and i've tried almost everything I swear. Dr. prescribed medication has included (not entirely sure if all these are the correct spellings, going from memory) tetracylcine, minocycline and one other which I can't remember the name of. I've been prescribed a topical lotion, benzyl peroxide cream and azealic acid crea
  20. This is a regimen I followed in 2009. I meant to join the forums & post at the time but didn't get around to it. My nephew was getting married in August 2009, so I was desperate to get rid of my spots before the wedding. After decades of having bad skin, I thought I would attack the problem from all angles. 1) I used Dan's cleanser, BP & moisteriser. 2) I used a blue/red light Beauty skin unit daily for 15 minutes on one side of my face & 15 minutes on the other. 3) I cut o
  21. Well, here it is. My log. I'm going to keep it quick and simple with frequent updates every 2 days. I live in Florida, kind of off topic but just thought about the more info i share the better. But yea, i have had acne since i would say 8th grade is when i noticed it. Then all of high school i dealt with having to wake up every morning feeling worried about looking in the bathroom mirror. It was always a MAJOR problem for me. I know my acne is not as bad as alot of people's out there. But i co

  23. I am 26 years old and I have battled acne off and on for years. Recently, though, my acne was coming back with a vengence. I had persistant acne (deep, painful cysts) on my chin and nothing seemed to help. 5 years ago I was prescribed a sulfur wash and tretinion cream. It definitely helped. However, I no longer have health insurance and I have relented to buying drugstore facial washes that are only minimally successful. I have suspected my diet for a while now but I couldn't put my finger on
