  1. I am believer that the most important part about health is what we eat and drink. I love kale and spinach and veggies, but I also love mac and cheese,donuts ,cakes, and fries. Part of me wants to be very healthy and another part of me believes in balance and martinis. When I had acne, I was doing so much research on good supplements and healthy foods, so I still practice a lot of it. My skin is damaged from acne and I still break out if I skip some of my regime and at the same time now I have t
  2. So here is my story. I've been battling acne since the age of 18. Initially my acne was not too bad, i had few breakouts on my forehead, but still it made me feel very uncormfortable.I went to see a dermatologist and he prescribed tetraysal antibiotic for almost 2 years, which has helped me a lot. No blemishes at all while taking it. I stopped taking it and my acne was under control until i got married at 22. since then my acne has changed. i started having small cycts on my chin. I' ve used a
  3. I probably won't post in this blog very much, but I wanted to share my journey with everyone and have my whole story in one place so people know where i'm coming from. My battle with acne started years ago, probably when I was 11 or 12. I hit puberty early (I was 9) so I got to go through the awkward phase even sooner than most. Yay! I started out with the typical solutions to acne- when you're 11, mom says 'Just wash your face and you'll grow out of it soon enough'. When it became apparent
  4. Yesterday I thought that maybe one of the small spots from a few weeks ago was trying to make a resurgence, but wasn't too sure. Last night it was definitely a bit swollen - gah!!! I slathered BP on it and the rest of the left side of my chin. The right side seems to be a little bit more under control, but the left side seems always on the verge of a new breakout. I guess it's only been 16 days since I started using BP twice a day, hopefully I just need to persevere. This morning it doesn't seem
  5. After a real bad breakout, I researched more and more for something which would help until I found Pantothen. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford the brand but I read that Pantothenic Acid capsules work just as well. If you're thinking about taking B5, maybe give this a read first. Pros: Cleared skin within a week, keeps spots and breakouts at bay, reduces spots quickly, slightly improves complexion, any annoying under the skin threatening spots do not emerge. Made me feel a lot happier and co
  6. Disclaimer - This may not work for everyone, but I have been suffering from hormonal acne for about 20 years now and have FINALLY managed to clear my skin, so I wanted to share with people what has worked for me in the hopes that it might help someone out there struggling with the same problem. The following is a detailed description of my multi-structured approach. Feel free to chime in if you have questions. Also note that there is nothing here that is super expensive. All the things I do
  7. Hi everyone, just a question to help narrow down a product that is right for my skin. I have extremely sensitive dehydrated oily skin which is prone to small breakouts. Over the years I have been on benzoyl peroxide cream and the duac daily gel as well the antibiotics of which I have forgotten the name, tetraclyine I believe. Anyhow this was over 3 years ago now and my skin has dramatically improved. But These products have drastically dehydrated my skin also. I use aveeno products to was
  8. Hi guys! I’ve been struggling with acne since I was a teenager (I’m 25 now and still struggling lol) but here’s what I wished I’d known in the past. Natural remedies are the best and supplements help a great deal too. For me, I’ve switched to using aloe gel and jojoba oil as my moisturiser and castor oil (anti-bacterial) for my acne. I also use a raw honey, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg mask once every 2 days. Also, I’ve started taking some supplements because I highly suspect the cause of my acne
  9. 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
  10. I am looking for a multivitamin that might help provide extra skin benefits to aid in the reduction of my acne. I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions that you may have used or that you think may have helped your skin?
  11. Hello everyone, I have been taking agnus castus(chasteberry root/vitex) for over two months now along with evening primrose oil, zinc, and omega 3. I was also taking saw palmetto but it made me thirsty and feel weird and I also felt like i was gaining a little weight on it so I stopped. My skin has improved but not really seen any drastic results...I know maybe I havn't given it enough time and I thought I was seeing big improvements but I have broken out again pretty badly...I'm also gett
  12. Hello I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about vitamins? About the dosage and possible side effects? I especially am wondering about B5, as I've heard some serious horror stories about hairloss, is this only going to happen if you take megadoses?
  13. Hey everyone. Just wanted to share my story and see if anyone could help me out. Im 17 and in high school. I got bad acne at a super young age and it only continued to get worse as a I got older. Eventually when i was able to go to a derm, I started on acanya then epiduo and now a retinol, while taking doxycycline. After years of these, the doxy stopped working and my cystic acne got so bad i wanted to try a new approach. I started working out ritualistically while eating better and also started
  14. Hello! So today marks the day my package from drugstore.com arrived and I can't wait to start my new skincare routine. So, a little background info. I've been struggling with breakouts since I was a pre-teen. Got really bad around age 16-18 and then after taking an antibiotic for a short period of time it cleared up. I am now 19 and it is back (not nearly as bad, but still, back). I have been wanting to go on accutane the past few years but my insurance does not cover it and it's been h
  15. Hi everybody, I'm looking for advice on what I could try next because I just don't know what to do anymore and my acne took a bad turn this summer. I'm a 30 y o female with PCOS and skin that tends to scar really bad. I've been on Yasmin since 2014, Diane for 6 months before that. 2015 added Spironolactone, first 50mg then stepped down to 20. Took it for two years and those were the best years for my skin since I got acne at age 13. But for some reason I freaked out about staying on Spir
  16. 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...
  17. THE BEST HORMONAL ACNE ROUTINE- THE ONLY ONE THAT HELPED ME!Hi there I'm 22 years old and I've been suffering from acne from around the age of 15. It was bad and cystic at times but it was still manageable and used to come and go. During this time I was still using cosmetic facial products and benzoyl peroxide continuously and my face was very oily all the time. Anyhow, about 5 months ago my acne got servilely worse. I had sore cysts all across my forehead and all across my chin and the sides o
  18. Dropped old Omega-3 fish oil supplements, started Nature Made Super B-Complex with Vitamin C on 10/17. Take one tablet a day with food. Benefits include helping to support the immune system and contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system through aiding of cellular energy production and antioxidant support.Waiting for the order of 5-HTP supplements and EltaMD sunscreen for face to arrive in the mail (then I can start using my topical acne products on my face before school without p
  19. My current diet is not very healthy in these past months, despite the fact that I still get enough proteins, vitamins, and carbs to keep myself nourished. Although, I'm not sure if I'm properly digesting these foods, because I constantly feel fatigued and depressed. I am really concerned with my low serotonin levels, constant migraines, high stress levels (due to negative thinking and inconsistent decision-making), and overall high anxiety levels. I feel like I'm just not my optimal self, but I
  20. Hey guys So since we last spoke (I spoke you read) I felt as though clearogen was being way too harsh on my skin so I made some changes. I'll go into my current routine later on. On Friday I had an appointment with a new derm... He told me my acne is probably genetic (even though it's clearly around my jawline and was caused by Yasmin one would think its hormonal hmmm). We did speak for about 45mins (my apologies to the people waiting for their appointment after me). He suggested roaccutane t
  21. so basically i switched brands of tretinoin 2 weeks ago. i switched from nuderm obagi tretinoin to retin a. i don't know if i'm getting another initial breakout but i'm getting a lot of pimples on my cheeks and temples. - bumps on my head are way lesser - lighter and more even skin tone ( but still shitty) - with good lighting i kind of glow haha - papules and pustules but no more cystic shit (i think) on my temples and cheeks - my boxcars are actually lightening up and getting shallowe
  22. Hi! I was just recently prescribed Accutane and I am about to start my first course of 60/mg day tomorrow. I have been using the regimen EVERY SINGLE DAY (BP followed by AHA+ mixed w/ moisturizer) for about 2 years now, and I'm terrified of what is going to happen to my face if I stop cold turkey. I was thinking of gradually decreasing the amount of BP I use from two pumps down to one until I feel the Accutane is making my skin too dry to use any more. My face has always been extremely oily and
  23. They got me. For years, the dietary supplement industry has been tricking me into buying and consuming poison. The poison is not in the nutrients, but in the pills themselves. Fillers, coatings, glazes, lubricants, coloring, preservatives and sweeteners in pills are all most likely toxic. The manufacturers put these ingredients in pills to make it cheaper and easier to produce them, at the expense of your health. They do this with oral prescriptions as well. Here is a list of some common toxi
  24. I just got a hormone test done and found out that I am high in androgens, which is likely the cause of my persistent hormonal acne. I have tried many birth control pills in the past but have never found success so I am looking for a more natural solution. What are some anti-androgen supplements or foods I could be consuming to balance my hormones out??? I am already taking 30mg of zinc, which has helped a lot but not completely.
  25. I'm new here. I made this post to warn the other members about the dangers of taking saw palmetto. I'm a 27 year old female with PCOS and I have struggled with acne since I was 14. I'm not overweight like most women with PCOS are, I'm actually a bit underweight. The last time I had my hormone levels checked, it showed that my testosterone was slightly high. I also had elevated DHEA-S. My estrogen was normal. Last year I decided to take Saw Palmetto to balance my hormones. At first I didn't n
