  1. hey guys! it's been so long since i updated. retin a really does make your skin smooth but it has made mine shiny (bc my skin is now thin) but whatever i really dont mind. still not clear though but my acne has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. and it f idk if it's because of teh vitamins im taking (d3,a,zinc,niacin) or really because of retin a. anyway will update u guys if anything better happens. and when ppl say that retin a makes pimples go away fast, it really is legit. it's like it hastens pim
  2. feeling really discouraged right now because i'm getting a lot of negative feedback from a lot of users that i should stop retin a as it didn't do anything for them. switched brands just last week and i don't know if i'm breaking out because of that or i dont even know anymore my skin is really ugly right now. pimples everywhere, bumpy texture on my forehead, clogged and large pores, pustules,hyperpigmentation, scars (thank God i only have like one deep scar that the retin a can kind
  3. Right, you're going to have to forgive me for this essay but I really need advice and I think it's best if I just give you all the facts. I'm male, I'm 23 and I've been suffering from extremely oily/spot prone skin for about 10 years now. I've more or less given in to the fact that I'll probably have oily skin for most, if not all, of my life. I understand there's no miracle cure but it's got to the point where the state of my face has shattered all of my confidence and is having a severely nega
  4. Hello, I once suffered from pretty severe acne. Perhaps between moderate and severe, everyday I would feel self conscious about it and it put me into a significant depression. I recall it consuming my entire life, I would literally hide my face and stray away from people around. Could you believe I would even skip college classes due to a breakout? I would actually see my face in my car mirror and feel disgusted by my appearance and I would just hide in my car until class ended. I just couldn'
  5. I continue to research and try to get answers just like any of you, I believe that one day we WILL find the answer to our problem. I truely believe that our solution is NATURAL rememdies. I really feel that chemicals will make our problems worse. Just My Opinion.. I went to a few websites today.. I found one such as www.blessedherbs.com ..It is important that we continue our mission. You guys are great, and this site acne.org is truely a blessing. I dont know what I would do without it.. Keep
  6. Well, I decided to post my regimen. I started using Dan's BP regimen last summer - did not work for me, too harsh even at 2 1/2%. Then I tried different over the counter stuff, SkinClean cleanser, and then Retin A Micro 1%-did not work, way too red and all. Went to another derm (my 4th) and he wanted me to try either Accutane (my last resort due to side effects) or Spironlactone. Went to Naturopath at first, gave me a homeopathic medicine and then 25,000 i.u. of Vitamin A, Zinc with copper
  7. Hey everyone. Just wanted to share my story and see if anyone could help me out. Im 17 and in high school. I got bad acne at a super young age and it only continued to get worse as a I got older. Eventually when i was able to go to a derm, I started on acanya then epiduo and now a retinol, while taking doxycycline. After years of these, the doxy stopped working and my cystic acne got so bad i wanted to try a new approach. I started working out ritualistically while eating better and also started
  8. Hello I dont exactly know what I am hoping to get out of this post.. I guess im just living in the hope that someone knows the answer to how my skin condition can improve. (I am male by the way) Products Ive previously used: Anti-Biotics: Tetracyclin Arco 250mg, Tetracyclin Actavis 250mg, Ery-max erytromycin 250mg Creams: Dalacin clindamycin, Differin gel Moisturizer: Neutrogena oil free moisture for sensitive skin Products I currently use: Vitamins every morning: Multivitamin, B-vi
  9. Hey! I was wondering which order should I take these Vitamins in? Also will any of these taken together affect each other or will they affect my birth control (Yaz)? Fish Oil 1000mg x2 Vitamin A 10,000IU & D 800IU (one pill with both vitamins in it) Zinc 50mg Niacin 500mg The main part I'm worried about is these vitamins could be effecting my birth control. Thanks for any advice!
  10. I just bought Finest Natural Zinc and Niacin(no flush) and GNC's Pantothenic Acid I was planning on taking 50 mg of zinc twice a day(wakeup, bedtime) 500 mg of Niacin once a day at night before bed and 500 mg of Pantothenic Acid 4 times a day(2 morning, 2 night) How does this sound, please let me know if I should change anything.
  11. Hello folks. I'm new to posting, but not to reading. I decided it was time to get accountable for my health (which obviously affects my skin -- no question about that for me), and to contribute to this forum, having benefited from many options that I would not have considered had it not been for others' experience on here. On that note, I'd like to thank all those who have shared their experiences with treatments on here, it just goes to show the diversity of people's body chemistry, how diffe
  12. 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,
  13. Here's my whole story, If you don't want to read all this just scroll down toward the bottom for my regimen. I'm just looking for some personalized advice to make my regimen more efficient. I'm going to include every detail I can provide into this post so that nothing is overlooked, and I can receive the maximum amount of input from you guys to finally beat this thing, since you are on this website I'm sure you can understand that way of thinking, so I apologize if it's a bit lengthy. MY STOR
  14. 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.
  15. Ok so about a week ago I finally made my way over to a certified raw organic dairy farm near me. Yeah I know I'm lucky to have one near me, these places are hard to find. Picked me up a gallon of goat milk to experiment, and some fudge for my mom because she's a die hard fudge fan lol. Had my kefir grains that I ordered off Amazon. Did a thorough cleaning of all my supplies, gallon glass milk jug, wooden spoon, cheese cloth. Poured the milk into the jug, added the grains, stirred, and then
  16. 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
  17. Hi, My current regime products are cetaphil gentle cleanser wash, panoxly 2.5% and simple anti blemish moisturiser ( I also use jojoba oil). I have recently started to have problems with dry, flakey skin and have been considering changing my moisturiser. I would like to know peoples opinions on Freederms oil free moisturise as a change . .Here is the product link . Here are the list of ingredients: -Aqua, Isononyl Isononanoate, Propylene Glycol, Shea Butter Oleyl Ester, Shea Butter
  18. Right now this is the order I take them in; Morning Fish Oil 1000mg Vitamin A 10,000IU & Vitamin D 800IU (This is one pill with both vitamins together) Lunch Zinc 50mg Fish Oil 1000mg Dinner Niacin 500mg I want to start taking Vitamin B5 (500mg), when do you think would be the best time to take it? If someone has any suggestions that would be amazing!
  19. 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
  20. I have seen many women on here reporting great gains with progesterone supplementation, for Estrogen Dominance. For me, it's been the exact opposite and I'm really frustrated. About 2 years ago, I started seeing a naturopath. I mostly started seeing her because of depression and headaches. I also told her my skin was a concern, and she put me on zinc, a multi with iron and iodine, vitamin a, as well as a bunch of other supplements. Also, she had me take whey protein every morning (I am a vegetar
  21. I've got a problem. My T-zone is always oily. It doesn't break out with acne at all and It doesn't look like I'll be getting acne anytime soon unless I overuse retin A. Now, I keep getting my pores clogged somehow - on my forehead (centre only)/nose (centre only) and they don't go away unless I extract their contents which results in damage to my skin, and more hyperpigmentation. The rest of my face is very smooth. I reckon it's because I use hydroquinone and oil based moisturisers on those a
  22. 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. Serving Size is 1 pill. i plan on taking 2 a day. morning and night. Vitamin A: 2500 IU (50% daily val.) 20% as be
  23. despite all my 'flattering' acne, usually where my face is clear like my cheeks, the skin is nice and smooth and when looking into the light there isnt one tiny bump at all. Today i wore a bit of makeup on my face around the clear areas , makeup ive used for years on end so i havent changed anything, i didnt even cover my whole face at all, just little parts lightly and i noticed now my whole face texture has changed. when i get the light to reflect off my face every single pore is raised sligh
