  1. The acne regimen is not an effective method in permanently stopping acne. It just masks the symptoms. Here are the causes of acne, and how to permanently stop acne. Hormones - Most of acne is caused by hormones. Certain hormones signal the skin to produce more oil and sebum, which causes acne. The ONLY way to stop acne permanently is to shrink these things permanently. One fact that isn't as known as it should be is that DAIRY PRODUCTS CONTAIN TONS OF HORMONES. You should stay far away from
  2. Read this PLEASE. It's been a long road, and I feel like I can answer a lot of questions. I'll have a concise conclusion at the end, so don't worry about remembering everything I say that you need to do. The immune system is designed to keep things like viruses and foreign bacteria out of our system. Bacteria's getting in our system, so there's clearly a problem. To first answer the fiends that insist acne is from hormones and oil glands and which can't be changed, they can. You can balance horm

    Avocados And Omega 6?

    Alright guys! It's been a while. Trying not to make my skin my life...but it is a symbol of my health I believe and still like to spend a good bit of time figuring it out. Anyways, I went on vacation to Bermuda and my skin was great! I was eating totally super healthy food there. Everything is grass-fed, tons of fish, was able to still do my no diary, gluten, or grains, pretty much paleo diet there. I was getting tons of Vitamin D from the sun, I used sunscreen non-comedogenic. HOWEVER! It'
  4. So about 1.5 weeks ago I bought an ebook called "Annihilate Your Acne: The complete natural guide to consistently clear skin". It's $20 but it's one of the best $20 I've spent. Plus there's a money back guarantee if your acne doesn't clear up. So this book is absolutely amazing. I opened it and couldn't stop reading. It concentrates mostly on oil balances (omega 3 vs. 6) and antioxidants as well as pesticides. It goes through each food group and tells you what is appropriate for acne and
  5. Hey so I just recently found out a cheap method that surprisingly works well in controlling my acne, and I have been trying this for a month before posting to see if the results were consistent but to be sure can you guys try it out too, it should cost only at most $20. Anyways, this method is nothing new but it consists of taking 3 supplements that you can purchase at Walmart. These supplements are: Zinc, Vitamin D3 5000 IU, and Omega 3 Fish oil. The results I've had we're very significant,
  6. I just wanted to post this here since I read this forums almost everyday a couple years ago, when I was experimenting and trying to find how to control my acne, so I wanted to post this for other people. I had been taking omega 3 from the vitamin world brand since I was 17 and I am now 24, after my uncle said it caused him to have some abscess like nodules around his face I decided to stop taking it to see if it would help my acne which was under control but I still got the occasional pimple e

    Diet And Acne

    So my acne is cleared up from the regimen, but I'm still dealing with lots of leftover marks on my face. I know to get rid of these, I just have to wait for my skin to heal and these melanin unbalances that make the marks will go away. Now you guys probably believe that these are called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, but I think it's the same thing. These marks were recently made worse because I was given vitamin a by a person at a grocery store because they said it'd be good for skin.
  8. Hello I need some help. I am currently on D3, 400 I.U. and is from fish liver oil: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/country-life-natural-vitamin-d3-400-iu-100-sgels Since it is running out, my next bottle is this 5,000 I.U. D3 which is from lanolin as shown on the label. http://www.swansonvitamins.com/doctors-best-best-vitamin-d3-5000-iu-360-sgels Wondering if the quality of its source is at the same level of the natural D3 from cod liver oil? The I.U. is up from 400 to 5,000
  9. Most of us know the benefits of grass fed and organic meats, but many of us find that they cannot afford to eat organic at many meals, while grain fed meat is much cheaper and preferable to one on a limited budget. A new farms bill is coming up soon, so I found a petition that calls for the end to corn subsidies. This would in effect drive the price of corn up to the point where it would be preferable for farmers to have their animals eat naturally as it should be (not accounting for soy, which
  10. I struggled with red marks for the longest time. Dan has said that he doesn't believe that there is a treatment for red marks and that you just have to let them go away on their own. However, he puts links to red mark treatment like alpha and beta hydroxy acids. So I tried both of them thoroughly and to be honest they only made my red marks a lot worse. I agree and disagree with Dan's statement that we have to wait for them to go away on their own. There is nothing topical that we can use. In fa

    Omega-3 and subcision

    Hi! I'm wondering if taking Omega-3 fish oil capsules will have any effect on the results from subcision. Omega-3 acts as a blood thinner, which makes you more prone to bleeding. Would this be beneficial when having subcision or would it be bad in any way? I take Omega-3 every day for other reasons but I'm considering not taking them a few weeks prior to subcision if it would mean better results. Thoughts? Replies are appreciated!
  12. Hello, I have moderate acne that is usually on the middle of my forehead, the lower part of my cheeks, and on my chin. My acne consists of mainly painful papules. I was doing research on omega 3 supplements and found that they have worked for some people. I am willing to try them out but I have a few questions: How much EPA and DHA should you be getting in order to help decrease acne inflammation? How long until I start seeing results, if they actually work for me? If you take omega 3 suppl
  13. I started taking a high quality omega 3 supplement (all epa/dha and high levels of it). A couple days later I added a hair, nails and skin supplement (contains A, E, B, D, zinc). Within a week my existing acne really healed up and I didn't get any new acne. I wish I'd known about this decades ago (I'm in my early 30s and have been dealing with this my whole life). Regarding which supplement did the trick, I had used omega 3 for about a year without knowing about the acne benefits. During
  14. I've had acne since I was 11yo. Currently I am 27yo. Only lately I've started actually dealing with acne. I bought a different brand of Omega 3 capsules a couple of months ago. I started having these huge cysts on my neck and face. In the end I came to the conclusion that it was the Vitamin E that the company adds to their product. The reason why it does that is because it is synthetic. Natural Vitamin E does not do that. So when I stopped taking them, I stopped having the cysts. I wanted
  15. Hello y'all, I've been suffering from severe acne since the age of 11 (I'm 18 now). Along with that, my family has a long history of heart disease. I've been on Isotretinoin 40mg for the past month and my cholesterol levels have elevated significantly. My lipid panel test before isotretinoin showed results that were borderline both HDL and LDL. I eat healthy, am not overweight, and I exercise daily but my problem seems to genetic... My levels after 1 month isotretinoin are: Total Blood
  16. I've had acne for 12 years now and have been taking minocyline for about 8 years. It has definitely been a massive help since I started taking it. I haven't had a major issue of scarring since starting the medication. Unless I pop/squeeze a spot myself, generally my spots do not leave long lasting scars. They disappear soon after. That is until around 5 months ago. Now, every spot on my face leaves a huge scar which just does not go away. I'm left with so many scars on my face. Not just that,
  17. Hi all! Hope you are all enjoying the holidays! To Start; This is the first time posting in the forum but like many other people I've become fed up with trying different treatments without seeing results treating acne- especially on my neck. Before banging on about my acne I have included a great product (All natural) I now use on my seb derm at the bottom of this post which has worked wonders (Don't worry I have not been paid to promote etc It's just something which has really been amaz
  18. Hey Everyone Firstly i wanted to ask you all for advice on how much omega 3 i should take to try and help improve my skin. I am taking a low dose at the moment only 300mg. How much should I take to see noticeable results? Also thought it would be good to generally discuss omega 3 and any experiences anyone may have with it. Here is some info on omega 3 to start things off. Now of course the main property we are looking for in omega 3 is its inflammation reducing properties. I was first

    OILY skin must go!

    Many ppl say their oily, and yes they may have a little shine. Unfortunatly I wake up with olive-oil face. 5min after washing my face its shiny. By 1 hour you can cover 2 oil-sheets. By 2 hours you can probably fry some chips... by the afternoon its a complete joke. A side effect of all of this oil is the complete lack of any exfoliation, not even with chemicals, the skin is stuck together like glue. Resulting in, angry red clumped rough skin that shines and ppl think Im sweating and am years ol
