  1. I am feeling so good about the caveman regimen this time around. Every time I look in the mirror, I feel like my skin is looking better and better! No new breakouts, and the two spots I have on the left side of my mouth are getting smaller (well, the one is coming to head so it's further along in its healing process). AND it looks like my scars are fading more quickly (but it's hard to tell). All in all, I am VERY optimistic. My diet is still just fruits and veggies, nothing else. I real
  2. Intermittent fasting improves glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, reduces oxidative stress and it slows cell proliferation which means it might reduce the hyperproliferation/hyperkeratinization of skin cells that leads to acne. In studies on cancer, both calorie restriction and intermittent fasting slow cell proliferation. It also promotes progesterone levels as they drop after a meal. Constant meals mean constant drops. And impacts androgen production. I'm interested in this because
  3. Man. This acne journey is rough. *Can I get an amen?* If you've been following my blog, my last post basically said I was going to keep wearing natural makeup, restrict my diet and maintain a minimal face care routine. Well...it didn't work. I was still breaking out around my mouth, which based on face mapping means that it was hormonal (which I've known forever). I restricted my diet even more and went on the Candida diet for a month. Still no change. Now, I'm a very spiritual person,
  4. Hi guys! I'm trying to solve one big acne mystery. I've been suffering from acne almost 10 years now (I am 23 years old now) and I have tried many things but nothing has helped. Over those years I have eliminated foods that are breaking me out like dairy, sugar(chocolate, sodas, sweets etc.), fried foods, potato chips, nuts, citrus fruit and processed meat (ham, salami...). These are foods that definitely worsen my skin condition. I have even tried for some time vegeterian diet as well as glut
  5. So I have officially started reintroducing foods into my diet. I was going to wait until this Saturday, but I went to an event last night thinking I could just have salad, but the salad was already pre-dressed in Caesar and parmesan, so I chose to eat gluten free pasta, which seemed to be the lesser of two evils. I ended up having two plates of it, so at the same time this will be a test for gluten free pasta and high glycemic load. So far so good. No cysts. I had a tiny whitehead pop up arou
  6. What's up everyone, it's your boy Silverlight22 (no idea why I chose this username) and I will be giving you daily updates on how fasting during the month of Ramadan is impacting my skin. Quick background - I have cystic acne/perioral dermatitis on my chin and sides of my mouth. Been on antibiotics for 2 years. Got resistant to Doxy. Switched to Minocycline 100mg. I think I am resistant to that now as well but scared to let go off it. OK SO let's begin this 30 day journey and see how fasting
  7. I've been lurking for two years, but finally decided to make an account because I've got something to say: I'm clear, finally. After 12 years of struggle, I now know how to control my moderate acne. In October 2011, I started eating a strict paleo diet and it cured anxiety/depression, improved my general well-being, and minimized acne. Paleo minimized but did not stop acne completely because I was not addressing an important underlying health issue: insulin resistance. Typical symptoms:
