    Success!

    Hello everyone, I have been dairy free for about ten months now and my severe, often cystic acne has completely cleared up. I can't believe it! I spent 15 years of my life struggling with acne and the solution was so simple. I had tried giving up dairy before, but after two months, saw no improvement. I think it takes a very long time to clear up if you don't use some pharmaceutical help to get you clear first. So I went on spironolactone, gave up dairy while on it, and then when I was clear quit the spironolactone. I hope that this will help someone else. While I feel very sad that my face is scarred from all the years I spent dealing with acne, and the solution was so simple, I'm glad that I know what to tell my kids if they inherit their mamma's bad skin. I'm glad they won't have to deal with years of antibiotics and hormone pills. I'm still using the topical cream I've always used, which is Tazorac. I also use 4% niacinamide gel on my chest and neck which works great!
  2. So, i've ordered some Gugulipid and have been using Niacinamide Gel as my topical for about a week. It's hard to tell if the gel is working, but it definetly isn't hurting anything. I picked up the information about it from this website: http://gmuntz.tripod.com/niacinamide.html where I also found information about Gugulipid. That site was a very big advocate of B5, Gugulipid, and Niacinamide Gel. Even calling the gel as the best topical ever. The gugulipid was boasted as better than tetracycline and also can be used indefinetly, unlike TC. I was wondering if anyone on these boards use these two things at all, and what they're results are/were. I'm going to be starting gugulipid tommorrow, so I will be able to post my results after a week or two.
  3. If I made a stack using a combo of B5, niacin and fish oil...wouldnt this be a great stack? 5-7g B5, 500mg niacin and fish oil caps? tell me what you think, feel free to throw in something that you would think might help! thanks
  4. i have question can i use any base cream while making niacinamide solution?im allergic to aloe vera and vanicream.
  5. Hi everyone. This is my first post and I am interested in starting B3 treatment. There is really no totally definitive thread about B3 on here so I thought I would start one. If you are using niacin please post in the format below: What type of niacin: (eg. nicotinamide, nicotinic acid, etc.) Flush: (Yes/No) Time release: (Yes/No) Dosage: (eg. 250mg twice daily) Severity of acne: (eg. Moderate-Severe) Reduction in breakouts: (Yes/No) Reduction in inflammation: (Yes/No) Faster healing: (Yes/No) How long before it began working: (eg. 3 days) How long before it stopped working: (eg. 2 weeks OR N/A) If you could fill that in it would be much appreciated. Thanks. Blake

    Ziana, BP, Tetracycline

    hey, im a male college student who before this recent flare up of acne (past 6 months) had almost perfect skin. i would go out drinking for weeks on end, get no sleep, and eat total crap and have very manageable skin. Long Story my old regimen was proactiv in the morning, ziana at night and a cycle or two of antibiotics. Well at some point i decided i was sick of getting sunburn and dropped the ziana, stopped taking antibiotics, and switched to that neutrogina skin care package that was basically the same thing. stupid choice. shortly after i started getting more acne, then i tried adding in 100 new things to make it go away, and that just made a mess of my face. i was on dans regimen for 3 weeks until my doc said i should do it in the morning and put ziana on at night, with some antibiotics for the IB. Im just hoping to be clear again so i can be my old self. ill never take clear skin for granted again. advice for people who are on a retinoid: dont pick your goddamn face. it makes my face so fragile that if i even try and get rid of a pimple without the upmost care, HUGE red mark. literally take a layer of skin off. be careful Short Story Week 1: started off fine, then the peeling really set in. 500mg tetracycline every night, lotsa ziana, 2 pumps of BP in the morning. face isnt looking to pretty Week 2: i added in niacin no flush, zinc, and a b complex vitamin in hopes of quicker clearing. Had a pretty good effect for 1 week until my IB set it. down to 1.5 pumps of bp in the morning cause of flaking. good days and bad days. Currently Mid Week 3: well the IB from ziana started, something about antibiotics/ziana makes me get cysts. got 2 ugly ones that im putting mupirocin on in hopes of them fading. My right side of the face is oddly clear with only red marks, while the left side has a small cyst. ugly cyst on the chin. forehead clear as usual. edit: started mixing my ziana with moisturizer at night, results are wonderful. much less peeling. ill get some pictures when i have the time peace

    Has anyone tried a Niacinamide Cream?

    Hi, has anyone here tried a niacinamide cream or take this orally for acne and scars? I can only find 2 creams online and not many reviews. One product is called Acnessential and it looks promising but the website and cost is a little shady - very pricey and you are forced to buy 2 tubs of this stuff. Any advice on a B3 cream or otherwise? Thanks very much!
  9. I've been struggling with acne for years now. I've tried it all: BP, Minocyclin, Accutane, you name it. I was clear for a couple of months after having been on Accutane, but now the acne's coming back, and it's gonna look horrible again as soon as summer ends and my tan is gone. Anyway, I've read a lot of good things about niacinamide/nicotinamide/B3, and especially about a product named Metazene. Has anyone tried this and if so, did it work? I'm dying to try it, but can't order it because I live outside of the U.S (Netherlands)! So if anyone has got positive experiences with the product and would like to help me out, it would be much appreciated! Just send me an email in that case! Much appreciated, Jeroen
  10. alright ive started having acne when i was in about 6th grade, of course i'd figuire it was just hormonal change, but yeah neway towards jr. high it became moderate bad, so i started using proactiv for nearly over 6months, which had made it worst, ugh i hated that, high school, it kinda cleared away but still the same as junior high, after graduation during the summer my acne was about 70% away and during that time i was using noting really, drank A LOT of water and i took NIACIN pills which is suppose to open up your spores and cleans your body, but i was using it to get clean from smoking weed, neways after i quit that a few months later then i BROKE OUT BADDD crap all around the side of my neck and big fat giant pimples on both sides of my temple, and now its been about 2 and a half week im using MURAD, i guess i can say its working a little bit, but when my pimpls go down theres like a bump there that feels like theres a pimple stilll there but isnt, i dont know what it is, theres no white head or noting but a bump that feels weird. i dont know what it is but yeah heres the picture of my acne,,,please give some advices () thaanks

    Niacin for red marks?

    For those who have tried niacin - does it also work for the red marks left after acne, and also general red/pinkness of the face?

    niacin! how much?

    i just ran out to walgreens and got the "natures finest - flush free Nicacin " (500 mg). It says take one daily with a meal and i just ate a huge meal. is 500 mg too much for my first dose? help pleaaaasse?
  13. Well I have been reading every where that niacin is good in treating acne,so I finally got some today and I took a 100 mg about 1 hour ago and I just had mild flushing it was no big deal.Does anyone know how many mg's are safe and effective to take? I also was wondering does anyone know of an inexpensive product to use to help with the red marks,other then lemon or vinegar? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
  14. I was just wondering if the potential for liver toxicity/damage has dissuaded anyone from taking niacin. From my research all forms of supplemental niacin pose the risk of damaging the liver, the most likely being the no-flush/time-release varieties.
  15. Where can you get Niacin? I want to try out the 100mg ones. Can you get it at stores like walmart? Or would I have to go to a heath store or something?
  16. For about 2 years I have been taking "Nicodime" which has 2 B vitamins "Folic Acid and Niacinamide and two minerals "copper and Zinc". Is it safe to take "Fish Oil" capsules also?? Which contains Omega 3. It seems that Im not getting the results I want to with just the "Nicodime". Thanks
  17. has anyone tried it? if so, how did you find it? ive heard its moisturizing which i need, but ive also heard that it can cause breakouts. http://covergirl.com/cgcollection/face/foundation/aqua.jhtml Active Ingredient: Titanium Dioxide 9% Also Contains: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Oxokertie, Tridecyl Isononanate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Niacinamide, Talk, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Acetate, Stearach Acid, Dimehticone, Copolyol, Dimethicone, Panthenol, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candeulla) Wax, Propylparabne, Disodium EDTA, Methicone, Methylparaben, Aluminum Hydroxide, Mica, Iron Oxides

    Supplements

    Milk thistle helps with liver enzymes and damage right? and fish oil helps with cholesterol? would it be beneficial or safe to take these during the course to keep my blood levels healthy? also is it okay to take niacin once a week? it lowers cholesterol but it also may cause problems with the liver with prolonged use. it also helps relieve toxins from the body. i only plan on taking it once a week (on saturday) its a time release capsule. are these supplement all safe to take together and with accutane? also people say its okay or they have an excuse to eat lots of fatty foods and lots of mcdonalds and kfc but won't that increase cholesterol or tryglicerides?
  19. 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, but maximizing its delivery through out the body is another thing, and we want to raise our ldl cholesterol levels for this. from my memory, supposedly the sebacous glands in acne are hyperproliferating, and that means, they are getting too large and not dying at the right time, they are over grown secreting too much sebum, retinoic acid derived from vitamin a is known for its major role in apoptosis, or signaling a cell when to die, and that is why accutane is also a chemotherapy drug for certain types of lung cancer,as cancers cells also do not know when to die, and hyperproliferate. getting more vitamin a to the cell would allow more retinoic acid production perhaps. for the case of heart disease, it is high hdl that we really want and the ratios are what matter, because high hdl ensure little fat deposits on arteries. lowering our ldl, may just be lowering the delivery of fat soluble vitamins through the body. also, studies repeatedly show that fatty deposits can be created with a diet deficient in either magnesium, b3/niacin, b6, and possibly b12, which leads me to believe the complicated process of developing heart disease lies in our substandard agricultural practices which leave our food depleted in vitamins and minerals. also fructose is known to dramatically lower hdl as well as ldl, lowering ldl 23%, and hdl 43%. ill update this with more research later.

    F*ck yeah!

    I just joined this board to share my results with you all. I am 31 years old and have had persistent mild to moderate acne since I was a teenager. I suffer from hard, red papules usually around 5mm in diameter. They are usually on my temples, cheeks, and the crevices between the edges of my nose and my cheeks. I occasionally get one right on my nose or between my eyebrows too. I also usually have a smattering of them on my upper back / shoulders. I have tried just about everything over the years short of accutane. I have been frustrated lately as I'm now single and was trying to start dating again but, you know, as a grown up with this kind of acne it can be challenging. I also want to add that I've suffered from anxiety / depression on and off for much of my life as well. I came on these boards this past Saturday to read up on accutane as I feel I'd reached my wit's end with this adult acne. I came across this thread and got pretty excited because of people's stories as well as the fact that I hadn't heard about Niacin and, as I said, I've tried all kinds of stuff over the years. Long story short, on Saturday night I had 8 big, hard, red papules on my face and about 20 or so on my upper back. After finding this thread I went out and bought some non-flushing niacin. It is Jamieson brand non-flushing and each pill contains 500mg Niacin (Inositol nicotinate) and 150mg of Inositol (Inositol nicotinate) [isn't that the same thing twice? I just copied what it says on the bottle. Hmmm. Whatever.] It cost $17 CAD and I got it from Shoppers Drug Mart (I live in Canada). Please note I had to ask the pharmacist for it as they kept the non-flushing kind behind the counter for some reason. I took 1 pill with food Saturday night, 1 pill Sunday morning with breakfast, and I just took a third pill this morning. I know it's too short a timeframe to be definitive, but I have already experienced positive results. I have developed no new papules in the last 2 days (unusual, I usually have a rolling outbreak; new papules forming as old ones slowly go away). I experienced zero flushing from taking the pills. This morning, after only 48 or so hours I only have 4 visible papules on my face (that's a 50% reduction in just two days) and about 12 on my back (a 40% reduction). The ones that are left have shrunken significantly and are now a healthy looking pink colour instead of the deep red I'm used to seeing. My skin also "feels" normal. This is hard to describe, but it's like I don't actually feel my skin whereas before I always kind of felt a persistent strange/uncomfortable feeling just under the skin of my face. Within about 2 hours of taking my first pill I did notice a mild tingling in my face papules which is gone now. Note that in addition to the Niacin, I have been taking 150mg of Milk Thistle (a detoxifying herbal supplement that supports liver function) and using a 80% tea tree oil / 20% lotion tincture on my face twice a day to accelerate skin healing (this is NOT new to my regiment, as I use tea tree oil every day anyways). Sorry, I don't have pictures as I didn't think to take a "before" shot. I didn't expect results this fast! I'm being 100% honest and true though, this stuff is really amazing. I would say if you have ANY kind of acne, try niacin out (with food, for at least 2 weeks). IT COSTS LESS THAN $20! Just try it! I would also say to spend a few extra bucks and get the non-flushing kind. Why go through the flushing if you don't have to? I've had good results, but I know it may be too early to really tell what's going on. I will post back in a couple of weeks to let you know if I've completely cleared up or not. If I do clear up, this will be LIFE-CHANGING for me. If I don't completely clear up, my skin has still improved significantly. Win-win : ) p.s. I also ate some fresh guacamole on Sunday and later read on the Web that avocados are a natural source for Niacin, so I may have consumed slightly more than 500mg of niacin between the pill and food source.
  21. I have been researching the different vitamins that might help. I think I have narrowed down trying the Niacinamide (B3) and or B5. Would you recommend taking these as individual caplets or taking the Vitamin B Complex, which contains all the B vitamins? I just started taking a multi-vitamin (One a Day Womens) and a Vitamin C each day. I went to the dermo this week who basically gave me two options: accutane (not ready for this yet, too scary as of now, might be ready someday in the future but not now) or BC (can't take because of heart condition). I am trying to see if a more holistic approach would work, diet and vitamins. Thanks for all your support and help!

    So I got Niacin today...

    I got GNC 500mg Niacin with Niacinimide... most of the testimonials I've read used Niacin with Inositol Hexanicontinate, so I'm just wondering if what I have will still be helpful. Thank you.
  23. Hello, I'm currently using Paula's Choice Ultra Light Weightless SPF 30 but in my opinion it isn't light at all no matter how much I apply. They happily refunded me the money for this product and now I am searching for a new SPF. I figured that SPF 30 is a bit over the top for me as I am living in the UK and let's face it we don't experience much sunshine here. I have combination / oily skin which is prone to breakouts therefore I need something which doesn't clog pores and is mattifying. I've found these 3 products, prices are very different but the ingredient formulas look similar: Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Daily Mattifying Lotion with SPF 15 and Antioxidants: (£15.50 for 60ml) Aqua, Octyl Methoxycinnemate (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate/Octinoxate) 7.5% (sunscreen agent), Isododecane (matte finish solvent), Benzophenone-3/Oxybenzone2%, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Avobenzone) 2% (sunscreen agents), Silica (absorbent), Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract (antioxidant), Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E/antioxidant), Superoxide Dismutase (antioxidant enzyme), Niacinamide, Phospholipids (cell-communicating ingredients), Soybean Peroxidase (antioxidant enzyme), Bisabolol (anti-irritant), Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol (water-binding/slip agents), Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate (absorbent/thickener), Polysorbate-20 (emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20 (thickeners), Sorbic Acid (preservative), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer (film-forming agent), EDTA (chelating agent), Sodium Hydroxide (pH adjuster), Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol (preservatives) Oil of Olay Complete Care Fluid 100ml (£4.43 for 100ml) (Oily/Normal Skin): Aqua, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Octocrylene, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyethylene, Dimethiconol, Cetearyl Glucoside, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Polyacrylamide, Arachidyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Myristic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Sorbitan Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Laureth-7, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Parfum, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Cinnamate, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Limonene, Linalool. Olay Complete Care Fluid 100ml (£5.99 for 100ml) (SENSITIVE SKIN): Aqua, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Octocrylene, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis, Chamomilla Recutita, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Propylene Glycol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyethylene, Dimethiconol, Cetearyl Glucoside, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Polyacrylamide, Arachidyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Myristic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Sorbitan Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Laureth-7, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Sodium Methylparaben, Sodium Propylparaben. As I mentioned I have oily/combination skin so naturally I'd go for the Paula's Choice / Olay Care Fluid for oily/normal skin. BUT, the Paula's Choice SPF is expensive and the Olay for oily/normal skin contains Parfum and Linalool (lavender oil fragrance) which can be an irritant. Can someone help me out here? I would go for the Paula's Choice SPF as she really knows her stuff and it is clearly reflected in her skin care line products i.e. BHAs, Toners, Cleansers, AHAs but the Olay formula looks identical to P.Choice's SPF and it would save me some money. Many thanks in advance to anyone who can offer help or suggestions.
  24. Hi - So I have been reading posts and researching products on acne.org for years but just joined. I have really appreciated everyone's posts on here and have used it as my go-to resource everytime i hear about a new 'miracle' product. My History - No acne throughout pre-teen/teen years at all. Never wore makeup (i know this sounds strange for a high school/college girl but i was fortunate enough to have clear skin and didn't need to until i started breaking out) but my diet was always horrible because i was uneducated about health and i was raised on junk food. I started to develop acne at 21 and it has slowly escalated until now (i am 26). I used to have some on my chest/back but now it is solely concentrated on my face. It's moderate with some pretty painful cystic acne and of course blackheads and whiteheads. I'm really losing my patience with diet as i'm ridiculously strict about what i eat everyday: no sugar except in fruit (only drink water, hemp milk in the am, green tea with raw organic honey in am), no refined carbs, rarely processed foods - i read the ingredients on everything i buy so unless i eat out which is rare i am not eating processed ingredients, and a very balanced diet with fruits, veggies, legumes, and fish. I also exercise regularly. Overall i'm in the best shape of my life but my skin isn't getting with the program. So now that i have that out of the way, i am pretty convinced after a couple of years of focusing on diet that this is not my problem so i have turned to supplements - i believe my acne is hormonal so we'll see how this goes (i don't take birth control because i avoid all prescription medication). I have been reading a lot about four supplements in particular that show great results for people. I know you are not supposed to take a bunch of things at once because you can't truly report which is working; however anyone on here that has persistent acne can understand why i am taking this route. Also, i have read that Niacinamide and Zinc work in tandem (and there is even a prescription out there with both) and Lecithin and Black Currant Oil are supposed to work well together too. So i am cutting out almost all other supplements other than my multi and adopting this regimen and hope to report good things. My new detailed regimen is below, however any suggestions or feedback for those who have had success with these supplements would be greatly appreciated. Morning Wash with Dr. Bronners Hemp and Rose Cleanser Homemade Toner: Distilled Water, Witch Hazel, crushed Niacinamide tablets, Lavender Homemade Lotion: Aloe and MSM Makeup: Youngblood concealer and mineral powder Suplements: 1000 MG Lecithin, 1000 MG Black Currant Oil Mid-morning/afternoon: New Chapter Organics Women's Daily Multi Night Wash with Dr. Bronners Hemp and Rose Cleanser Homemade Toner: Distilled Water, Witch Hazel, crushed Niacinamide tablets, Lavender Lotion: Cellfood gel Supplements: 250 mg Niacinamide, 30 mg Zinc with Dinner
