  1. Hi all. So I was on accutane back in 2013 with great success. However, back in November I had a breakout that was a little worse than usual. I wasn't too worried because I tend to get these in a very minor form still a week or so before my time of the month. However, at the same I had been to see a doctor because I was having issues with painful periods, bad PMS etc and she recommended that if I wanted a natural solution I should try Evening Primrose Oil. I started taking these with grea
  2. 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'
  3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Acne

    Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for overall health and we cannot thrive without them.1 When it comes to acne, it is their anti-inflammatory activity that is likely the most helpful. Omega-3s are called essential fatty acids, meaning the body cannot manufacture them and the only way to obtain them is through the diet. There are three primary omega-3 fatty acids: ALA (alpha-linoleic acid) EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)1 When it comes to acne, EPA and DHA are most important. EPA...
  4. Hey guys, Since my last blog entry I have only been suffering with acne in the corner of my forehead. I get small bumps on my jawline but nothing major and I treat them with a face mask(as a spot treatment). My updated skincare routine is as follows: PM: acne.org cleanser clearogen cleanser (daily) Acv toner pixi glow tonic tone ole henrikson night treatment la roche duo and H moisturiser Sunday riley artemis (amazing oil but hurts my bank account) Products I use sparingly: Alp
  5. 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
  6. I started getting cystic acne at about 14 and before that had regular acne. It was bad but not cystic. Just to clarify, some people say they have cystic acne and what they have are spots. These are not cysts, even if they are big. Cysts are hard lumps under the skin which are disfiguring. They rarely come to a head though they may burst at some stage. They grow slowly and can last for months. Mine usually last a month or so. I started Roaccutane at 23 and it worked a charm. So happy with th

    Day 22

    Hey! (If there's anyone actually reading this!) Thanks for the comment Tristan, you must be so excited to start your treatment. I am really lucky, I got to start the day after seeing the derm. I did a pregnancy test and all my blood tests 15 minutes after seeing him, and within an hour I was out the door with my prescription! Don't have to deal with iPledge crap where I live, but I do have to see my derm once a month. I am leaving for a 3 1/2 week vacation back to Canada, so I saw my de
  8. How to Get Enough Omega-3 In Your Diet

    What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids? An omega-3 fatty acid is a type of unsaturated fatty acid, needed for proper functioning of the body. The three main omega-3 fatty acids are: Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) When it comes to acne, EPA and DHA are the two most important ones. Although the body needs omega-3 fatty acids, it cannot produce them itself. They must be consumed through the diet. For this reason, omega-3 fatty acids are called essential...
  9. my breakthrough PEOPLE SAY DIET IS UNRELATED TO ACNE. ITS NOT FRIGGIN TRUE!!!!!! -DAIRY can cause acne due to added hormones -TOO MUCH CAFFEINATED DRINKS causes increased sebaceous gland activity, more sebum, more comedonal and pustule acne! -Delayed food allergies are among the most common causes of acne. Foods like gluten, dairy, yeast, and eggs can be problems if you have a leaky gut. list goes ON. seriously. firstly i want to encourage everyone to please carefully evaluate their
