  1. Hi everyone thank you for taking your time to read this. In this article I will keep saying me because it worked for me. We are all different. But this might help you! so let's start! Little background first: I am 23 years old. My skin had lots of acne from the age of 20 till the age of 22. I lived in Florida. This is what helped me to get rid of my acne. There are 3 factors that played a roll in my acne. 1. Food 2. Products 3. Stress Food is a big part! what you eat, is who
  2. I am desperate for any advice and help. Long story short, I've had bad cystic acne since I was about 14 or 15 years old. I'm talking about the deep, under the skin, extremely painful, pimples all over my face. I have tried literally everything. I've been on rounds and rounds of several different oral antibiotics that seem to work temporarily until I become immune to them. I have been on oral birth control twice which seemed to only worsen my acne. My mother is an esthetician so I have had all
  3. Hello, all! I began eating very clean about 1-2 months ago. I took out gluten, soy, dairy, legumes, and nuts, and basically all processed and refined sugars. I feel that after taking out nuts, (used to drink almond milk everyday) my skin has really improved! It has been a hard two months or so, but I love this natural route so far. Anyway, it was pretty moderate/severe at one point, and I have cried about it a few times the past couple months. This is the only reason I have been so discipline

    My Pcos Is Gone For Now!

    Hi ladies, Yes, I was told today that I no longer fit the PCOS patient profile!!! I'm not sure how long this will last, but for now I'm pleased with my progress ;D I don't think one can "outgrow" or fully treat PCOS, but I certainly think it can be kept under control and cysts can lessen with the right holistic approach (as in, considering the WHOLE body and tailoring a treatment accordingly). Some of you have been following my journey for a while now. Acne helped me figure out a lot of th
  5. It seems like my face is peeling a little bit less. I think it's been around 4 or 5 weeks since I started using Retin A Micro. I am using it 2x per week now (on the in between days I use nice moisturizers or tamanu oil). Just the other day, I noticed that the tone of my skin seems to be improving. It's hard to describe but it seems to be getting more even and maybe a touch of a glow to it. I'll take it! I am still getting random bumps here and there but nothing out of the ordinary. I don'

    Intermittent Fasting Continued

    sorry people i also forgot to mention protein intake. high levels of protein also increase IGF-1 and testosterone. im not saying cutting out protein sources obviously thats stupid but try to not go over you daily recommended amount. also when it comes to you diet we all know the 5 a day rule or whatever arbitrary number the government of your country have decided on. ( basically have as much as you can ) focus more on veg than fruit because the sugar in fruit is still bad for you in large am
  7. Hi everyone IF YOU DONT WANT TO READ THE EXPLANATION SKIP TO THE LAST PARAGRAPH basically i've had moderate to severe acne for about 4 years now (its been moderate for the last year) and as is the same with most people on here ive tried all sorts of pills and creams over this period. And i have also had a huge interest in diet, nutrition and exercise. about 3 years ago now i did the basic 6 food elimination diet (milk, soy, egg, wheat, nuts and shellfish) and took vitamin tablets to re

    Does Soy cause acne

    Hey Guys, I am trying to cut down on meat and eat lots of vegetables etc. I bought a lot of stuff to use for food, but they all contain some sort of soy. I once heard that soy did contain some hormones like milk, that could cause acne, is that true? I don't eat dairy

    From the album: Acne Progression - Holistic Treatment - Dietary Change

    My diet wasn't always as consistent as it should have been... I wasn't really aware of gluten back then, which I started to avoid only a few months later. overall my acne looked okay, wasn't happy with it at all. I set myself the deadline of December 2014 to get rid of my acne for good, so I was definitely committed to keep on with the good work!
  11. Hi, I am a 35 year old woman and I just discovered what was causing my big, red, painful blemishes, a condition that stayed with me since I was 20 years old. It was gluten-sensitivity. Before I had discovered this sensitivity, I had tried the "Proactiv" type medicines, I made sure I didn't wear moisturizer or make-up with oil in it, (definitely no sunscreen), and even went to the doctor to try a medicine ( but I soon talked myself out of it). Then a few months ago, I read an article about th
  12. Hello all! I have written my testimony/story for those who want to read it! For those who don't, keep scrolling and I will talk about my cure below I was taking oral medications to treat my acne for about five years. My dermatologist thought it would be okay for me to be on such medications for that long. Somewhere in those five years, there was a time where I didn’t have a period for nine months. My hormones were completely out of order, and after that nine month time frame, I got off Sp

    Acne Cure

    Hi everyone, I am 24 and started getting acne at 21. About 2 yrs ago, there was a time that all I ate was cereal for some reason, and during that time I noticed my acne completely went away. When I started eating other things, it came back. Also, shortly after that, I started drinking ovaltine every day three times a day and noticed that it made my acne go away as well . This was about 6 months, when I stopped drinking it , it came back. What does this mean?
  14. Hi! I'm a new member to this site and have been searching through the forum for a more than a few months. I've looked through the nutrition posts and have the idea that you are not supposed to eat wheat because once inside your body it becomes sugar and ultimately leads to acne. And dairy supposedly has hormones in it which conflict with your body's natural hormones and leads again to more acne. For the past month I decided to remove all the harsh cleansers used on my face and just washed it wi
  15. I am learning more and more about just how closely acne and diet are related. I've read a lot of books regarding nutrition and how it plays a role in either creating acne or encouraging clear skin. I never used to believe that eliminating certain foods could actually benefit skin health. I've seen it all first hand now though and I believe it more and more. Over Christmas and Thanksgiving, I indulged too much. I'm sure I'm not alone in that! It's such a hard time of year to stay on track but n
  16. Since around August last year, my skin (which was once very clear, maybe only 3-4 small non-inflamed spots) has been getting worse. At first it was just a few more on my forehead, but now it's covering my forehead, all along my hairline, a little on my cheeks and a bit on my chin. My back and chest doesn't have a lot of acne. Whilst I do struggle with picking acne on my face (though I have improved), I was wondering whether being extremely iron deficient could cause it to get worse. Since my iro

    Wai Diet?

    what do you guys think about this i checked the nutrition calculator and yes it seems possible to get all the essential minerals and vitamins and stuff with this very limited diet: http://www.waiworld.com/waicure/acnesamplediet.html
  18. For example if I drink a low quality coffee I might find I get rashes or other acne problems. If iI drink a higher quality coffee I don't get these problems. I've got this same situation with chocolate. If the maker of it is higher quality I don't experience skin problems. Does anyone else relate to this ? btw the type of coffee im drinking is blue mountain from jamaica. very good top notch and is not bugging me like all the others ive tried.

  20. Ok, fascinating video here on the severe damage diet has within the body, and it's effect on the prevalence of acne.Hard to dismiss these scientific facts! https://nutritionfacts.org/video/saving-lives-by-treating-acne-with-diet/
  21. Today I tried out Slim Fruits for the first time (no, I'm not endorsing them yet...still undecided!), and the main ingredient is dietary fiber. This reminded me of some interesting articles I read about fiber's connection to hormonal balance. People have been asking me for healthy ways of reducing estrogens and/or androgens, and I think the fiber- hormones connection is important, especially if you are against drugs & even supplements. I might post an update on slim fruits in a few weeks i

    So Done. Need Help.

    I am so done. For years I've been dealing with this shit. Some times it's real bad and sometimes my skin is semi-clear, but never have I not had pimples. This year has been the tip of the iceberg with rash-like acne and tonight I completely broke down. I'm 23, I just want it to go away already! I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING and nothing is working. I just need support right now because tonight I feel like crap. When I look at my skin, it looks diseased. It literally looks sick and like it's hur
  24. Chase your CoQ10 capsules on an empty stomach, :30 before breakfast and before bed at least two hours after eating, with this cocktail: 1) a scoop of collagen powder 2) 1/2 tsp MSM powder 3) 1 tsp of tumeric (I use tumeric and sandalwood) **4) optional- for stress- open a capsule of GABA and mix in, skip the coffee it's bad for your skin!!** 8 oz of water CoQ10 is more bioavailable when taken with MSM- this is an integral part of the famous Perricone Prescription.
  25. I've told my story numerous times in other topics, so I am going to keep this short. Bottom line is, I am a 20 years old guy with very persistent acne. At some point, it was terrible enough for me to take Accutane, which worked very nice during the time I took it. Acne came back shortly after finishing a long, low dose course. Now it is annoying enough to ruin some of my days but not as bad as before. Accutane was the only thing that ever worked for me, and here are some facts that I've noticed
