  1. Hi guys I'm new to this forum, and hopefully you guys have a lot of experience and can enlighten me with the proper way to apply my acne regimen. Background In highschool I had very bad acne I went from medicine to medicine, but nothing would work. The dermatologist finally took me off and made me get on acutane. I was on actuane for 6 months and I was acne free. It left a lot of scars unfortunately, but that didn't bother me that much. Skip forward 2 years later Present Acne wasn't a pr

    Some Food Questions...

    Hey guys, I have some questions about food/diet. So the daily recommended amount of sugar intake is around 35g. It seems grams of sugar stack up so quickly in foods, especially in fruits. A single apple has about 12g of sugar. But apples supposively help with leveling blood sugar/glucose levels. Can someone help me understand this a bit better? On this topic, what about those cleanses (such as Antony's on here) where you eat nothing but apples? On these, you eat 12-16 apples per day fo

    Sugar-Free And Going Strong

    I managed to avoid eating any biscuits yesterday night, even though they were lying temptingly on the sideboard. No new acne when I woke up this morning - hurrah! - but on the downside I picked at my left cheek yesterday, so woke up to a huge inflamed lump. Not a pretty sight. I also remembered to do a sea-salt mask this morning, which I should do more often - it doesn't prevent spots coming, but seem to help dry everything up and take the inflammation down. I am currently on two cups of gree

    I'm Back! With A Update!

    OK. wow i'v been gone awhile, I honestly have no excuse except I'v been busy. My face is looking really good right now, alittle red because I kind of went at it removing blackheads lastnight (I know, I;m ashamed of myself. Really!) Plus i'v been useing a AHA cream from...I can't remember the name of the place..But its natural and so good. It kind of burns my skin at first but it helps with my acne like you wouldnt believe! I put it on at night under lotion on my lerrosett rejuvinating serum an
  5. After a chocolate binge on Thursday the 9th May and Friday the 10th i have completely removed all refined sugar from my diet + milk. I had a very bad breakout 2/3days after the chocolate binge so from the ~13th but this only last for a few days or so and started cleaning up from about last weds/thurs[15/16]. Something to note is that i also started eating fruit from the 9th May onwards so this well could of been the culprit rather/plus the chocolate. Although i compellingly removed a
  6. Hi, can someone please suggest a no dairy/no sugar salad dressing? I am having a hard time finding one in the stores that i go to and it sucks so bad to eat a salad without some type of dressing. any and all suggestions are welcome!! thanks

    Sugar cravings

    How do you curb your sugar cravings? I get terrible cravings around my period, but otherwise I'm not a sweets person. The problem is sugar is my number one trigger for cysts, and those who get them know how long they last ;(. I know fruit is a better alternative, but if I eat too much fruit in a day, I STILL break out. Any tips?? Men feel free to answer too!!
  8. During my many years struggling with mild cystic acne and after seeing many different Dermatologists, who put me on many different medications (including Accutane), I discovered that I must be the one to resolve my acne. If I was ever going to manage my acne, I must be proactive and study my skin in order to understand my acne disease process. So I began reading all I could about the skin and what role it plays with the body. Then I systematically examined my skin, trying to figure out what w
  9. Okay, so I used to check out this site all the time, desperately looking for something to help. I found the cure to my acne, it took almost 10 years but I found it. I feel like I owe it to this site to post it for the rest of you, maybe this will help someone. A little background, I'm female in my early 20s. I had absolutely terrible skin as a teenager, went on birth control and it helped a bit, but my skin never really cleared up. By university I was getting a zit a week or so, pretty big o

    Sugar Causes Acne?

    I've heard a lot that sweets, and sugars unhealthy candy sweets cause acne?! Even my derm said that but is this a proven fact? I seem to believe it because I always break out way heavier if I eat any candy, or soda? Someone let me know what they think!
  11. I am posting this here because I have noticed some interesting emotional reactions recently. I have had acne since I was a young teen so that's about 20 years (32 now). I've tried BP, oral antibiotics, topical antibiotics, azelaic acid as well as a bunch of dietary stuff and more oddball treatments like using head and shoulders to wash my body etc. Either the treatments didn't work, I couldn't tolerate the side effects or the treatments eventually stopped working. I kept waiting for the
  12. A place for little good to know things. Because I just came across a good one: Sniff Test to tell if Oil is Rancid Check all commercial products made with oil for toxicity before you eat them by doing the “oil sniff test.” If the oil is rancid, it’ll smell similar to oil paint, which is actually oxidized linseed oil. If you get a hint of this odor in anything that has fat content, whether it’s nuts, whole-wheat flour or oils themselves, don’t eat it. Rule of thumb about Antioxidants in
  13. I wanted to share my story and struggle with acne in the hope other people can relate and share their advice, including any information they may have found that could help. Long story short, I began to suddenly suffer with severe acne two years ago - unsure and frustrated with why this suddenly occurred I was put on a 4 month prescription of Accutane or Roaccutane depending where you're from. The accutane helped, it cleared my skin significantly and didn't damage my liver etc. 1 year later

    Energy drinks

    Hi, I've never had a strong belief that diet played much of a role in acne (from my own experience) but I just wondered what you guys thought about the effect of energy drinks such as Monster and Rockstar on acne. My son's skin was looking quite good for a while but has flared up over the past few months and one of the changes during that time is that he started a full time job and started drinking 1-2 energy drinks every day. He's started the regimen again and is on week three and although he's
  15. Milk Free Diet Cleared My Cystic Acne, And.... ... Eliminating Sugar and most High GI/GL (Glycemic Index/Glycemic Load) foods cleared the rest of my 'white heads'. This worked for me, and will work for you. What I have been able to learn and understand for the past several years is that each and every person is different, and everyone will need to find what works for them and them alone. No one can do it for you, but this will do more for you than you could ever imagine. If anyone wa
  16. Companion to the 'Examples of how bad the average diet is today' thread. And this is not just about sugar --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Did you all see the segment on 60 Minutes last night about how added sugar is toxic? They said very little that would be news to any of us. Obesity, Diabetes, heart disease, etc. One thing that might be new to most, since it's out of the range most of us are concerned about, is it'
  17. Anyone know why this is? I Have other food intolerances too (gluten/dairy/most grains). Ive been working on my digestion, bone broths fermented foods etc. Will this intolerance to sugar/fruit sugar go once my gut flora has balanced out? Even a small bit of dark chocolate or fruit shows up on my skin
  18. I'm starting to wean off antibiotics! From what I've researched, antibiotics kill both good (gut flora) and bad (candida) bacteria. While weaning off antibiotics, would it be wise to approach it with an (anti)candida diet (to not allow bad bacteria to flourish, and keep them at bay)? Logically, I assume this would inhibit the bad bacteria's growth, and along with probiotics, keep their levels low and eventually out-numbered! So, SOUND GOOD?

    Your Favorite Tasty Foods!

    What are your favorite foods that are both SIMPLE and TASTY? And of course promote the things we generally preach on here, like dairy-free, sugar-free, etc.? I've been eating Paleo-esque for years now, but with a tight budget, limited cooking skills, and not a lot of time at home...my meals are pretty bland. Let me hear your ideas!
  20. Just curious. What is the food or foods that make you break out? Mine is sugar.
  21. Hi everyone, my name is Lydia. I am an almost seventeen year old female with what I would consider to be moderate acne. I have struggled since the age of 13 with persistent breakouts, excessively oily skin and clogged pores- trying every product under the sun in hope of finding a miracle cure. Unfortunately I still haven't found one. Although my skin is considerably better than it used to be, I still feel plagued with self-consciousness and have major self-esteem issues. I have decided to take
  22. I go training a lot lately and i need a carb boost to get through the workout. Today i "accidentally" had 93grams of sugar. Not added of course , it was an all natural smoothie mixed with some salad and green tea. It was a really intense workout about 90 mins so i know i would have used up the sugars, it seems likely that i will break out from this despite the exercise as you would still theoretically release the same amount of insulin if you didn't exercise and drank the smoothie. So what happe
  23. Hi~, What if there was a little software program that you could tell what foods you're eating each day, and it automatically analyzes your diet and figures out what is causing your acne (assuming it's diet-based, so not going to cure everyone). E.g, you tell it stuff like this each day: Monday 17th April 2017: Eaten/Drank: Cheerios w/ milk Big bag of Doritos KFC value bucket Kool-aid jug KFC value bucket (again) Small brownie Acne Report: 4x existing whiteheads 2x existing cysts
  24. I've been meaning to write this for a while and am finally getting to it! Since I was around 16 years old, I've had mild to moderate acne all around my jaw and chin area. It never seemed to get any better no matter what products I used so I just lived with it. Than I went to university and then veterinary school and now am doing a residency. Since starting the residency two years ago, my acne would flair up at times - total lack of sleep, tons of stress. AHHH. I am also extremely into fitness

    Diagnosis

    I got my results from my ultrasound from my doctor today. The findings are consistent with PCOS, but the changes are mild so a definitive diagnosis of PCOS can't be given. My doctor told me the best things to do if I have PCOS are heavy cardio workouts, low carb diet and stay away from sugary foods. If my periods continue to get longer, I will go back and see her and go from there. Its not going to be easy to make those lifestyle changes for me, but I'm trying. I've never had to worry about
