    Day 1

    Yesterday I started my new skin care plan. In the morning I put raw honey on my face and let it sit for like three minutes. I then take a hot wash cloth and lay it on my face then wash the honey off. I found that this leaves my face feeling great. It feels soft and not oily at all which is surprising for me because I have really oily skin. After all the honey is off my skin, I pat my face dry and apply my apple cider vinegar toner. At night I did the oil cleansing method with grapeseed o
  2. So yesterday I introduced eggs. I made shakshuka and then I also made a dairy free custard (both were absolutely delicious!). About halfway through yesterday I saw the beginnings of a cyst on my cheek. I was hoping that it would go away but today it got even bigger, plus I had some tiny bumps form too. So it looks like eggs are one of my trigger foods I'm pretty bummed, because I know how many foods have eggs in them, but I'm hoping that if they're present in trace amounts it won't bother me.
  3. So here is my story. I've been battling acne since the age of 18. Initially my acne was not too bad, i had few breakouts on my forehead, but still it made me feel very uncormfortable.I went to see a dermatologist and he prescribed tetraysal antibiotic for almost 2 years, which has helped me a lot. No blemishes at all while taking it. I stopped taking it and my acne was under control until i got married at 22. since then my acne has changed. i started having small cycts on my chin. I' ve used a
  4. So I'm dong OK I suppose. I fucking picked again. It's been harder to stop than I imagined it would be. I like to think I have good self- control. I became a vegetarian when I was 13, I pulled myself out of my alcoholism that I've had since I was 14, I overcame my OCD on my own when I was 10(officially diagnosed later on), but I can't stop picking. It's very frustrating. I'm starting to think my picking is actually a manifestation of my OCD, because it is quite obsessive and senseless in nature.
  5. So on my Day 5 blog post, I said that I had been juice fasting for two weeks for spiritual reasons and then switched over to eating just fruits and vegetables. But for whatever reason, I can't do partial fasts. I mean I can DO them, but I get so spiritually distracted by eating that it feels like a waste. I end up constantly thinking about what I can and can't eat instead of thinking about connecting with God and my own spirit. So I've decided to go back to juice fasting until March 16th, and th
  6. This is the first time in a looooooooooong time that I've woken up every day for a week straight excited to look in the mirror! Every day I can see my active pimples getting smaller, my hyperpigmentation getting lighter, and no new pimples forming!!! *does a little dance* The saving grace of this diet has been avocados w/ Frank's hot sauce on top. I initially wasn't going to eat spices but I LOVE Frank's and had to try it - it hasn't caused me to break out so I'm keeping it in my diet. But ser
  7. So after seeking a second opinion from my trusted GP he advised not to go on Accutane next week. I explained to him that all the listed side effects I currently experience so imagine what it would do to me... I get flaking skin (which has calmed down since coming off epiduo), dry lips, joint pain and not to mention a stressful job. I Know I know Im scared and trying to talk myself out of going through. Funnily enough in the past month my skin has really started to clear. I'll post my curren
  8. Hello Everyone! If anyone has been reading my blog thus far, you will know I have been on the regime (drugstore version) for about a month. I can honestly say that benzoyl peroxide is a very effective acne/blemish treatment - at a cost. The dryness, roughness and overall uneven skin texture is a trade off for fewer pimples and potentially clear skin. I found that my skin was so rough and uneven that it just didn't look great, even though I had fewer pimples and blemishes. Doing some research
  9. My acne is healed. I healed my skin with a combination of: Diet - I do not eat gluten, I avoid dairy products, lots of fruits and vegetables. I still enjoy my food and eat out on occasion. A few months of the caveman regimen (which allowed me to discover that my skin is extremely DRY and SENSITIVE not oily.) Stopping my skin picking habit (took a long time but I no longer touch my face or pick my skin.) The first and most important rule of my current acne routine is that it
  10. Hello! I'm an 18 year old girl and I am struggling with constant pimples. I don't have proper acne, but I have regular breakouts. They are stronger one week before my period, but they never seem to go away. The pimples are not that big and they go away after a couple of days, but I always have them and nothing I do seems to work. I've tried EVERYTHING. I've tried every product ever and nothing worked. Now I'm going the natural way and my skin is better, but still not clear. I don't eat dairy or
  11. I have been using Dr Organics Snail Gel for 3.5 weeks and it's made such a huge improvement to my skin already! I would highly recommend for anyone suffering with acne, scarring and an uneven or oily complexion!! Snail secretion filtrate is all natural, cruelty free and the latest craze to come out of South Korea! It's well worth it - I would highly recommend.
  12. Hi guys, need your advice. I've suffering with cystic acne for around 3 years. Checked my hormones - everything is normal, slightly high FSH. Otherwise it's all fine. But I still breakout in the middle of my cycle on my cheeks like crazy. I have a huge red mark on my right cheek now and I simply want to cry. I have done everything: natural approach, tcm, diet. Name it. I can't find the cause. I am also very slim because of dieting. Red somewhere that not enough fat in a body can cause hormon
  13. I spent the first few minutes of the new year crying. Yup, I sobbed because my skin was not what I wanted it to be before the new year hit. I decided not to wear makeup that day, and the harsh reality of my acne just teared me apart. I whimpered along my cousins shoulder, and hugged after talking to her about my self esteem issues. With much encouragement, she advised I move on and keep on finding something that can help me out without going to see a dermatologist. I tried my best and looked up
  14. My Konjac sponges arrived today. I ordered a Tumeric and a Charcoal infused one, though I know the active ingredients won't remain in them. They are made from 100% plant fiber- if you ate one, you'd get iron, copper, phosphorous, zinc, folic acid, vitamins A-C and more (not recommended, but you could..) Mine arrived moist. Watching instructional videos, most come hard and you have to soak it. It very rubbery, gentler than a washcloth, and makes gentle cleansers more effective. It
  15. Hey there. I started breaking out in the winter and it was actually due to my birth control. Instead of regulating my hormones, it was screwing them up. So I went off birth control and my acne drastically improved AND I started taking a supplement called DIM which balances your hormones. My acne was gone within 1-2 months and I was living acne-free with no make-up for 2-3 months.Then, wouldn't ya know it, I became pregnant and BAM, one zit after another. I don't have really bad acne and it only
  16. Hope to hear from you mr matt. From rob x, from panos, from aquasea, or anyone out there who had success treating their scars especially deep ones from the nose. I have one and is really deep. If not massaging with rose hip oil, what then shoul i do? I cant go to plastoc surgeons, I dont have enough money and i am more on natural methods. Anything else i could do? Any help out there? I am about to lose hope.
  17. I'm 32, male and have suffered acne off and on since I was 13. Although it seemed severe to me at the time, it would fluctuate from mild to moderate acne. I bought into the whole modern materialist trend of buying products to fix my problems (not just acne)! When I was younger I would buy face washes, scrubs, cleansers, and a whole array of other chemicals. These were all ineffective. I graduated to topical retinoids which had some interesting effects on my skin but caused far to much ir
  18. The rest of my face is pretty clear except for my left cheek which has dark scar spots from the acne. (Btw does anyone know if this is a specific type of scarring? Hyperpigmentation??) Any natural methods for tackling this..? (I heard olive oil at night is good... Also apple cider vinegar? Raw Aloe Vera leaf?) For my bacne I've started using Nautrogena Body clear body wash... What can I use with it? Is iodized sea salt water okay to use? I don't have non-iodized.. :c also benzoyl peroxide on
  19. Hi! So I've been using the Regimen for 3 months now and I'm seeing great improvement. I started off buying all three products from Acne. Org that is, the moisturizer, cleanser and BP along with the AHA+. I was using all three until about 2 weeks ago when I ran out of cleanser. I started using this all-natural, dye-free, paraben-free cleanser that I actually got from Walmart and it works so much better than the Acne.Org Cleanser and it's foaming so I don't have to rub my hands together, it al
  20. Hi guys! I'm new here and this is my first post so go easy on me! So basically I'm 16 and have had moderate acne for nearly two years now. I have been to the doctor and they prescribed differin and duac once daily which didn't really help a whole lot especially as I have oily skin and when I apply these overnight they can't dry my skin because of how oily it gets. Having said that they still keep the acne at bay reasonably well. (I also used a Nivea charcoal face wash morning and night). My oi
  21. I've got these dark/red marks I got from scratching pimples in the past and they have remained for a long time.Now I decided I need to get rid of them using either lemon juice mixed with acv and water or just aloe vera.I have used aloe vera in the past but I havent seen any significant changes.
  22. I used to have acne problems when I was 13 until 15 years old. Right now, being 19, I rarely have acne but I do suffer from extremely oily face and NOTHING works!!! I wash my face twice (morning and night), I always remove my makeup and I exfoliate my skin three times per week and nothing. This is very frustrating because using makeup is the only thing that kind of controls my oiliness and I'd prefer not to use makeup at all Before applying makeup I use milk of magnesia and a primer and I use b
  23. Hello. Over the last few months I've gained moderate to severe acne just on my cheeks. I'm fifteen years old male and this is devastating my social life, I quit my job and have isolated myself for the entire summer. I can't even go out without a hoodie on. I've tried every different kind of topical treatment and nothing works. So I found out about the link between diet & acne. I've been gluten free for 3 weeks because I thought that was my trigger. No results. For the last four days I've
  24. Hi and Thank-you for dropping by, My name is Hannah, a 22 year old female looking for allies to support each other through our difficult journey in battling acne. I had acne since my teens, but got 90% clear through changes in diet and taking supplements. I've tried from paleo to low-fat vegan, and I am still looking for what works best for me and my life style. (Of course I don't neglect traditional medicine, I've experience great results from anti-biotic topicals and dan's regime) I
  25. Hi I am in search for the perfect moisturizer as I have dry skin and seem to be unable to find a moisturizer that fits me. Basically I am looking for a moisturizer that meets these requirements. 1. All natural ingredients or as close to as possible. 2. Does not leave your face shiny or greasy. 3. Calms your skin and reduces redness. 4. Long lasting throughout the day. So far I have only tried 2 moisturizers which is cetaphil and pure organic jojoba oil, I dont like cetaphil as it is
