  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
  2. I really believe low stomach acid and vitamin + mineral deficiencies are a serious part of acne. I have been doing the oxy powder cleanse and getting liquid stools. I have far less bloating since doing these supplements. I took chromium with my baked beans, which would probably normally spike my blood sugar. But I also took ACV, cause I haven't received my HCL pills. My skin was clearing up a little, except for these weird deep bumps on my left jaw/cheek. I was craving them. Been really cr
  3. I started developing severe cystic acne when I was 20. They were huge red cysts with three heads each that would grow on both cheeks (almost symmetrically), and wouldn't stop being inflamed for two weeks at a time. It was ugly and really painful, and they left marks that would not go away for atleast three months and scars that are still on my cheeks. As I went from acne-free to covered in horrible red acne and scars on my face I became depressed and lost five kgs. I also started to *lose m
  4. There are so many guides out there about mineral makeup! There are so many ingredients that can be put into mineral makeup. Some are good and some are not so good. There is also a lot of bad hype about certain ingredients that is simply not true. Another note about ingredients. Mineral makeup doesn't generally contain what people like to call "fillers". I have not seen an ingredient in my research that does not have some form of use in each product. So, I don't consider anything liste
  5. Can I use this as a moisturizer? Ingredients are as follows: Water, Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristrate, PEG-40 Sorbitan, Peroleate, Glyceryl Lanolate, Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Cetyl Palmitate, Magnesium Sulfate, Aluminim Stearate, Lanolin Alcohol, BHT, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methyliosthiazolinone. On the information section is says it is a WATER IN OIL formulation, which provides a safe and effective for dry sking moisterization. I am wondering if the mineral oil will cause brea
  6. I am using 3 cleansing products from REPECHAGE. They are quite expensive like $25-35 each bottle. 1. Repechage Hydra refine-One-minute clarifying mask (for normal to oily skin). $26.00 Main ingredients: Seaweed (oil controlling marine seaweed), Lily of the Valley (fights blemish causing bacteria), Lemongrass (astringent, purifies and refreshes), cucumber (cools, heals and soothes).

  7. Hey guys....this is the first time I've posted here but i'm just so happy with the success of my Acne Cure Plan that i just HAD to share it with other people... Firstly, my name's Vanessa, I'm 18 and i live in Australia. My acne started in year 9 and continued until the end of year 12 until i went on this amazing plan and got rid of it for good I know that some of you have heard of Dr Dubrow and his book, "The Acne Cure". I was heaps skeptical when i first read it but i was desperate and so
  8. sorry to post this topic here but i think it will be better to post here because i heard this from maya in other board. It goes like this: I take a broad spectrum high potency enzyme complex, derived from vegetable sources, to digest all the elements in food for more efficient absorption. Also contains L.acidophilus to help maintain a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria. (Caution: Not suitable for people with colitis, gastritis or ulcerative conditions of the stomach or colon ) Bi
  9. Hey do you think this moisturizer would be suitable for use at NIGHT? since it has no spf? ...I don't really know about the other ingridients in it...it supposedly has aloe vera though. check it out. water, glycerin, stearic acid, mineral oil, glycol stearate, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, lavendula angustifolia (lavender oil), citrus aurantium dulcis (orange oil), glyceryl stearate, cetyl alcohol, petrolatum, fragrance, dimenthicone, stearamide AMP, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, triethanol

  11. I've been seeing a lot of posts and thread responses lately from people who read about the magic that is the hormone D3 and what it could and should be doing for their skin, but find that either they were never able to achieve the desired results from the start, or found their skin was no longer responding as positively to it as it once did. Most of them will either keep upping their dosage and find themselves more and more frustrated and confused that they aren't seeing results, or quit taking

  13. Hi, after taking 5000IU of Vit D for 8 months and still my number was at 41, I decided to up it to 10000IU. After a week of increasing the dosage I started breaking out like I had 5-6 active acne at any given time. This from being almost clear. At the most 1-2 acne around my period. I thought it was around my period and tried not to stress out too much about it. Now its been about 10 days since my period and I am still breaking out. I have decided to go back to 5000IU vit D. THis week I am
  14. Hey everyone. I keep hearing about kefir and the "kefir grains." I know you can make it in cow's milk, goat's milk, coconut milk, or even coconut water. Those I've heard of.
  15. I have recently added Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Zinc to my daily vitamin pile. Wondering what others are good. Thinking about adding Spirulina for overall health benefits. Also Sam-E because I'm coming off of anxiety meds and am a little irritable... I already take the following: Multivitamin Fish oil Vitamin B-12 Vitamin C Vitamin E Probiotics L-Lysine Calcium
  16. Hi guys First post of here and need some advice regarding a facewash! So i have had really bad skin and been on Accutane 5yrs ago which worked really well and i dont get acne on the same scale anymore, BUT do have oily skin and have few whiteheads which are always on the go especially around chin area. I have been reading tea tree oil is good for spots and found the King of Shaves Antibacterial face wash but not sure if its causing more spots. I used it last week and this week have some out
  17. The Short Version: Chromium is an essential trace mineral, and a deficiency can result in blood sugar problems and subsequently, acne. There are two major ways in which our body can become chromium deficient: -Excess Refined Carbohydrates/Sugars -Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance/Excess Refined Carbohydrates => Chromium Deficiency => Hyperglycaemia => Impaired Glucose Metabolism => Raised Blood Sugar Levels => Excess Insulin => Increased
  18. saturated fat is known as the bad fat because it raises low density lipoproteins most potently, but im just learning that this is how fat soluble vitamins(adek) are delivered throughout the body, through ldl, and considering that accutane is very effective at treating acne, i wonder if just by getting more saturated fat in combination with more vitamin a , and of course e,d, and k, could be just about the most natural hypothesis for treating acne. getting vitamin a in your diet is one thing,
  19. 1. full fat dairy products in this order: yogurt, cheese, sour cream. why: calcium and phosphorous source. calcium supplements are not a replacement for milk. and also the ratio of saturated to mono/polyunsaturated, is very preferable to mammals, including humans. fermented means that the lactose content has been reduced, bacteria love lactose, and people have problems with lactose in general, so this helps create a better bacterial flora in the intestine, when you limit lactose. the island of
  20. Hello everyone. I'm in need of some advice. First of all, this is the current regimine that I use ... Morning (around 7-8 am) - Cleanse skin with a non-comedogenic cleanser called Spectro Jel - My nose has always been the worst for acne so I apply the acne.org BP to it - I wait 20 minutes and then apply the acne.org moisturizer - If I'm going to be out in the sun all day, I apply L'Oreal Ombrelle non-comedogenic 60 SPF Night (around 11 pm) - I cleanse my skin again with Spectro Jel - I wait
  21. Well I would say that I am pretty healthy I workout a few times a week, not much cardio though, and I guess you can say that my stress level is extremely high all the time, as I am a very anxious person. I am in good shape, athletic build, always have my whole life, but for the sake of my skin and overall mind and health, I am doing this routine. My new health/acne Regimen Morning: Cetaphil Cleanser Aczone Cream Cetaphil Moisterizer Cetaphil Sunscreen 3 glasses of water Doxycycline startin
  22. Ok, so here is my story. When I was about 12 I started getting very light acne that became a bit more moderate as I grew older. I started birth control when I was about 14 or 15, and it cleared my face completely, with the occasional hormonal outbreak each month. Then I stopped taking the bc (OTC Lo, by the way) when I was 20, and my face was okay until about 8 months later when it literally exploded in painful, cystic acne all over my face. I've been assuming that this is a hormonal reaction to
  23. Ever since I started using it I have been breaking out in large whiteheads.. I wash my face with it once a day (every morning) and then apply Dan's BP and Lumiplexion Moisturizer Gel..at night time i wash my face with just water then apply tretinoin cream 0.1%. I know it is the wash that is contributing to my break outs. My face is so irritated and flaky :/ Can you please tell me if you see any comedogenic ingredients (in the sulfur wash)?? sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, disodium oleamido
  24. Hey everyone, I really appreciate any help or suggestions! I've been using BP for awhile now...inconsistently, but still using it on a regular basis. It is effective against my acne, but it also dries me out like crazy and doesn't give me an appealing facial appearance (IMO). I'm gearing up for a complete drop of BP in my acne fighting regimen (which scares me) and starting to look at natural possibilities. I've been working out consistently the last two months, started eating righ
  25. so i have this bottle of pills not even meant for acne but its like vitamin pills and i was wondering if the ingredients in it would be good for acne. i was going to get acnepril but heard some bad stuff about it so i plan on returning it or canceling my order but not if these pills are bad too. so here are the ingredients, just tell me if you think they sound good. thank you.
