  1. Hey, I generally have very mild acne but for last few months have been taking protein shakes for energy before gym and to gain weight after. Started with whey protein and had the worst breakout since I was a teenager... (I'm now 27). So I let that clear and tried Soy, same breakout in and around my jawline. Then rice protein... and now most recently I've tried hemp and it's not as bad but still causing large cystic acne beside my nose. I've heard whey can be bad because of the link to dair
  2. I just wanted to update anyone interested in holistic methods for acne what I have been doing recently. I learned about Arachidonic Acid (AA) which is highly inflammatory and what Omega 6 is converted to in the body. AA metabolizes into all the inflammatory compounds; especially leukotrienes and prostaglandins. I learned that you need to redirect how your body deals with PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA's) towards the anti-inflammatory compounds. I realize that there is a balance. We already kn
  3. I am officially allergic to: All legumes (Including peanuts and soy) All nuts Fish with fins Chicken, Turkey, Eggs. The only treatment is avoiding... Anyone else have this issue? What do you eat?
  4. 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
  5. Just curious what everyone is avoiding because it causes break outs. For me, dairy is my worst enemy. I can't enjoy ice cream, milk, or moderate quantities of yogurt without paying the price. I have found that kefir is ok though, probably due to the added bacteria helping me digest the lactose. I haven't noticed anything else though. What about you? What foods cause you to break out? I have heard stories that citrus and other weird foods cause some to break out.
  6. I hope sharing my story with others may help them in some way. My journey with acne started around 25 years ago in my teens, I'm now 39. I've always had pretty clear skin on my face, just bad bacne (sometimes cystic and painful) and occasionally on chest. Made me horribly self conscious in certain clothing, at beach and god forbid, intimate with partners. Over the years, I've used oral contraceptive Diane (pretty good), taken supplements (not very disciplined, some made me break out horribly li
  7. Hello everyone~ I made this account just to share this and another post I'll be writing up soon. So I am allergic to wheat, soy, and peanuts and am also lactose intolerant. So basically it is inevitable that I accidentally eat something I can't. Well two days ago I ate 85% dark chocolate with soy lecithin and something else with soy oil. I heard soy lecithin is ok for people with soy allergies, but it turns out the minority actually can't eat the oil or lecithin (check it out if you have a so
  8. Let me start off by saying that this is my first experience with acne in this way. Other than the occasional pimple before my period, I had clear skin straight through my teens and twenties. I am now 29. I eat a pescatarian diet - primarily plant-based with one or two servings of seafood during the week.I barely eat dairy. I don't drink milk - I use almond milk for most of my needs. I stuck to this diet for almost 5 years, with no adverse effects, until SOY. In an effort to mix up my diet a b
  9. A little background about me: I have had acne since 3rd or 4th grade, in high school I found out I was celiac, and that helped a lot. After high school I got my wisdom teeth out and and had to take an antibiotic which exploded my skin. I took medication for my acne, which was great, but it gave me period cramps so bad that I would throw up every month. DID NOT WANT TO LIVE LIKE THAT, so I stopped taking it. I was on a mostly vegan with some fish diet with lots of plant-based vitamin A, which wo
  10. I made an account just to post about this issue because I know there is someone out there suffering with the same issue I had and IT IS FIXABLE. I am a 24 y/o female with dry/combination skin. My whole life, I never really had issues with breakouts, even as a teen. My only skin concern was dryness/redness. Like a normal person, I would sometimes experience breakouts (maybe one every 2 months and they were on the surface of my skin), and they would last about 2-3 days before disappearing compl
  11. I've noticed that my skin reacts by breaking out whenever I've been taking whey protein/mass gainer supplements for awhile so I've cut that out. Tried to replace my post workout nutrition with soy milk but have noticed very small breakouts too. Anyone else here who works out/bodybuild can point me in the direction of other easy to consume protein sources that are less likely to cause breakouts?
  12. Hello! I'd like to share how I got rid of my acne so that it might help some of you get rid of yours. Here's the short version: cleanser= pine tar soap, treatmen=paleo diet, moisturizer=jojoba oil, switch from liquid makeup to mineral powder full story: I stopped using BP because it made me extremely dry and itchy. I weaned off of it while starting a gluten free diet. This was Jan 2012. The diet worked amazingly until my acne came back a few months later. I stumbled upon the paleo
  13. I'm 15, and a girl. I've struggled with acne since seventh grade, however, I remember getting a pimple a few times in as early as fourth grade. My acne can be classified as mild, but I know most people with mild acne get it occasionally, or for girls, around the time they get their period. However, my acne has never gotten out of control (cystic acne everywhere) but it's pretty much always active. I haven't had perfectly clear skin for a long time. Or, it will be relatively clear for one day, an
  14. Hi, Since the end of puberty, my skin has been clear. I have never had any allergies toward any kinds of food. In the period of time when I was clear. I used to consume diary products, soy (and all other food that contain Lignans) - you name it, without any acne problems. About half a year ago, I moved from the east coast to west coast. And I started breaking out. Granted my acne problems were probably due to sleep problems and stress, should I watch out for food that can potentially agg
  15. Recently tried to start eating better, and started making healthy pancakes with soya milk in the mornings. Had these for 3 mornings in a row and at the end of these i broke out awfully- could it be from the soya milk?! I was so shocked and confused as to what was happening- has anyone else had any severe acne breakouts as a result of soya milk?! I haven't had it in a week and my skin is still slowly but surely clearing Any replies would be greatly appreciated !
  16. DIET: Being in an acne safe diet means cutting certain foods from your every day diet. Give it a period of 35 days to up to 3 months to see this truly works for you. But trust me, give it a real fair shot! NO: Dairy, Coffee (yes coffee!!), gluten, sugary drinks, alcohol, sugar (cut it out), seaweed, turkey, shrimp, and SOY (yes even soy milk, so no more soy lattes please. Make your self a favor and get more involved into cooking rather than eating out. Restaurants tend to use a ton of cheap
  17. I have a few questioons about saw palmetto and dht. Basically I am a male and I have had acne since i was 15, moderately severe and I am now almost 18. I have tried quitting masturbation which seems to work but I haven't gotten past 2 weeks. Since I see noticeable results that make me love the world and prance around like a fairy, I realize that my acne must be hormonal, caused by excess DHT, right? Im no scientist, only an obsessive internet fool. I have also noticed that when I cut soy out
