  1. Hello I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about vitamins? About the dosage and possible side effects? I especially am wondering about B5, as I've heard some serious horror stories about hairloss, is this only going to happen if you take megadoses?
  2. Hey! I thought I'd share this with you. I have been on the path to curing my acne for ages and have read tons of books about other ailments and alternative treatment protocols for these diseases. The underlying factors for getting acne differ from person to person. I have gone the vitamine route and there are certain protocols that improve your skin while on them. However, much more overlooked is the role of minerals and trace elements in acne, which are essential for the production of
  3. Alright, so I just pulled myself out of a little slump. Stressed about college, my boyfriend I see once a year, a new job I'm starting, my running career being jeopardy cause of a bounced knee, small tings that add up. But it will all be okay. One step at a time. Life must go on even if I have acne and fears. It could be worse...no jinx! Alright, and I know stress causes acne, I try to be really calm all the time, but I've had acne for 6 years now, and I was clear when I was young like most
  4. No massive change since yesterday. I seem to be getting a few cyst type spots-an overdue initial breakout maybe? Not sure if Accutane removes blackheads but I'm sure my nose seems to be clearing up a bit, and I definitely have less comedones around my mouth/cheeks. Wish I could fast forward to next month and see how my skin is by then. Been thinking about what foundation I'll use once it starts clearing up a bit more. I use Estee Lauder Doublewear at the minute, dunno whether to use the lighte
  5. Hi everyone. I just joined, although I've had acne for nearly 12 years so I don't know what took me so long! I have been using liquid foundation for many months, L'oreal True Match to be precise, but it causes me to break out in my most acne-prone area, my chin. I use it because I'm very, VERY fair, and most foundations make me look orange no matter how "fair" they promise the shade to be. True Match is the only foundation I've found that matches my Snow White skin. But, I don't want to erupt in
  6. What are your thoughts on supplementing magnesium? Any success or improvements? Which form/brands do you prefer? I heard magnesium glycinate is the most gentle form o f magnesium. What are your thoughts or suggestions? And how much do you take? Do you take any other supplements with it? Notice any bowel differences or differences in sleep pattern? Thank you very much!
  7. Hi Ladies -- What kind of Make Up are you all using? After spending a few weeks in Hawaii, I hardly wore any make up, and my skin cleared up (90%)... However, since being back home (in the cold), I wear make up every day to cover my hyper-pigmentation. I had been using a product line called Terra Firma Cosmetics (vegan & gluten free, bismuth free, and talc free) The first day I wore it again I broke out, the second day, I broke out even more, including a cystic pimple (which I had shot up wi
  8. So...I was wondering why my OXY Powder has done nothing, and they said if you have low stomach acid, it would be ineffective and to take it with some lemon juice or Apple Cider Vinegar. Well...I think I've been battling with low stomach acid for a while without knowing it! I am upping ACV and lemons to do the trick, and ordering 120 capsules of HCL to hopefully cure this problem. My skin is clearing up! Got my Simple brand face scrub that I trust very much, can't believe I ever tried to repl
  9. NOTE: Please scroll down and read update I am a 40-year-old male and I've decided to register here and share my experience because I think I might have finally found a solution to the bad skin I've had since my teenage years. Just a warning that this is a long story (27 years' worth) but if I can help even one person then it'll be worth it. I never thought I'd reach this age and still have hang-ups about my skin. You get told "it's okay, it'll clear up naturally as you age". Well mine didn't.
  10. I know some of you here think this is BS, but for those receptive to truly understanding how the body functions and what the connection is between deficiencies & neurological imbalances, please take a look at this article as a starting point. I find it interesting in terms of simply explaining the brain & body's chemical balance. It's not a comprehensive study or anything, but a good starting point for some potentially breakthrough research. For what it's worth, I not only went through v
  11. Good evening! So as an acne sufferer, and frequent visitor to this site I have seen countless posts by everyone in general with great information. So I wanted to swing by you a list of vitamins/minerals that I want to take in my battle against acne, and see if (for lack of better words) you would approve Few Stats about me: 22 years old, 5'11, 160 lbs. Lift weights 4-5 times a week. Student in college, smoke. Physically fit, however after recently tirelessly observing my blood sugar levels, they
  12. Hi everyone, I visited a dermatologist today because I have been having some facial redness, and he said I could have rosacea, in addition to acne scarring. He prescribed a vitamin cocktail called Nicadan, which basically contains niacinamide and other vitamins & minerals (you can look it up for specifics). Apparently the combination and dosage is scientifically proven to work, so I'm willing to give it a go, although I'm not excited about some of the fillers in the capsule. Has anyone tried
  13. I was reading about magnesium deficiency and its causes. Some of them are eerily similar to some of the diet related causes of acne. Even stress can cause a magnesium deficiency. Has there ever been any studies on a possible link between the two? Here's the article I was reading about magnesium deficiency: http://www.ancient-minerals.com/magnesium-deficiency/need-more/
  14. Dear all, I have been consuming 25 mg Zinc Gluconate daily for around 2 months now. It definitely does a little help to my mild acne, usually closed comedones. But I want to know what is a recommended amount? I am 21 this year standing at a 4ft11 , how much of zinc is the appropriate amount I should take? Please advise, thank you.
