  1. With the incredibly high levels of toxins in the air and all the pollution that’s finding its way into our lives, it’s inevitable we’ll, from time to time, suffer some sort of skin damage, no matter how great genetics we’ve got. Luckily, there’s a way to prevent it, and if not prevent it – then successfully treat it. Not to add fuel to fire, we’d never suggest chemically processed beauty products; that would be like advertising cheeseburgers for weight loss – ridiculous and inefficient. In
  2. I've been putting raw organic honey on my face after washing it and leaving it on for about 10 minutes and it's been working wonders! I've been doing this for about 3 weeks now and I've seen major improvements. Honey mosturizes skin and can help with hyperpigmentation, it has natural antioxidants and other benefits that I cant recall off the top of my head. You can also try an almond honey mask that is great for exfoliating Here's a link for that:
  3. Has anyone who has taken kratom for an extended period of time experienced a flare up in acne? Kratom can be taken in a pill form or can used in a powder form to be mixed in a beverage. Kratom is a holistic alternative for pain relief and comes from the same greenery as the coffee bean.
  4. I've found from going to my Integrative Physician that after years of birth control pills and antibiotics to treat my acne that I have gut dysbiosis or commonly known as "Leaky Gut" which is causing undigested food particles, viruses, fungi, and bacteria to leak into my bloodstream. This taxes my liver because all my bacteria, fungi, and viruses that are suppose to stay in my intestinal tract are heading to my liver and my system is overloaded. I am now 47 years old and I have been dealing wit
  5. Hello ! Has anyone tried any products from LUSH ? Has anything worked for you ? Is there something you could recommend for body acne/cystic acne/scarring ?? I`m looking forward to your answers because I'm thinking of trying it, but I'm not sure yet..
  6. Has anyone tried to use clove essential oil for spot treatment with any success?
  7. I had very clear skin up until I turned 18 I started getting cysts around my mouth I'm now 20 and wondering if it is hormonal when will they go away for good? And if I decide to get on spironolactone wont it just come back soon as I get off it? I just want clear skin again with out having to do the regimen for the rest of my life my self esteem has gone down so much I've become so anti social because I hate how I look Did anyone have any luck with natural remedies? Or a specific bi
  8. I was on the pill for 17 years to control my acne. It worked ok most of the time but my skin was never "perfect". Around the age of 30 I started noticing a couple of changes in my body and my emotional state and decided to do some research. (I have bipolar disorder and I've been taking Lamotragine for quite some time) My symptoms included: hyperpigmentation on my face, severe hair loss, emotional instability and moodswings, depression. After my 32nd birthday, I had lost enough hair and suffered
  9. I've kept my eyes on acne.org since i was about 14 but never signed up! I'm now 20 LOL. I've been through every degree of acne, and its been jumping around from moderate to mild to severe for a while now. I have mild scarring (but there's a ****load), a few monster spots and quite a lot of hyper pigmentation. I've done the highest strength pills. Ones that mess with the liver and cause deformities in a foetus I've tried every topical cream. Medicated or OTC or shelf, cheap and expensive, th
  10. Hi all, I've struggled with acne since my early teens and I am in my early 20s now. I've been through what feels like countless meds and birthcontrols all which have lead me to little to no improvement. The only antibiotic and birth control which I felt made a difference was Minocycline and Alesse. In any case, with Minocycline my skin cleared up for 7 months before losing its effect on my skin and making my breakouts come back. With Alesse, I got horrendous breakouts for the first few months a
  11. Home remedies for acne that you can carry easily Acne is truly one of the most common skin problems that teens experience everywhere. But does not suggest that the problem only affects children in their adolescence but generally men and women of any age. But then, it is common in people of teenage years ago irritations are often caused as a result of a significant increase in the levels of hormones in the body. Acne can actually appear on the back, face, chest and scalp. Lack of sleep
  12. Alright so... I'm in 7th grade and I've had actual acne since I was in 4th grade. I'm pretty sure I even had some pimples on my forehead and stuff when I was in 3rd grade. It really lowers my self esteem and self confidence, and though most people don't make comments about it, I know they're thinking rude things. It's just hard to deal with it because I haven't met anyone else with acne like mine. As of now I don't really have as bad acne as I did before, but I still get quite a few pimples. Rig
  13. I have been to countless dermatologists. I've tried the creams and pills (every-noin you can think of, another round of antibiotics, etc) and have tried nearly every natural remedy you’ve heard of: Apple cider vinegar? Yup! Smelled like a foot for months. Banana peels? You bet! I was sticky and craved a sundae. No makeup? Sure did and I wanted to cry every time I left the house. Around Thanksgiving this year, I began to break out in horrible cysts on my cheeks. This was an abnormally infl
  14. I've been taking bromelain to heal a little from surgery and it SEEMS to have helped, but it could be my imagination. I'm worried because I'd like to continue taking it because even though I take doxycycline, use topical treatments, and have been doing okay this year with acne--the stuff is breaking me out nastily. It never fails with natural products that seem to help with another non-acne problem; I break out in places I normally don't, like the jaw line; old pimples don't heal; the ne
  15. I have moderate to severe cystic acne, and have for years. I have tried everything from antibiotics, expensive salon products, hydra facial (a lot of them), OTC creams/gels/washes, you name it. I am trying to do anything in my power to avoid taking accutane (isotretinoin). I am now on birth control (preogestrone/estrogen) and I am hoping this helps. I used to wear makeup every day and wash it off, but I have finally decided to stop using makeup altogether. This has helped prevent many clogged po
  16. Skin type: oily, sensitive, acne prone History: Moderate, consistent acne and blotchy skin since 2008. 2013 - Accutane 2016 - Accutane Been prescribed with topicals and oral anti-biotics in between. - NO EFFECT Acne always comes back after a year. Dermatologists I've seen don't believe that there is a connection between food and acne. Supplements: Zinc - 25mg 1-2x a day (helps with inflammation and speeds up healing) *Vit B5 500mg when consuming meat Probiotics - acidophilus 3
