  1. 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

    Vitamins

    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?
  3. 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?

    My Story So Far

    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

    Advice On Dim?

    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

    My Pcos Is Gone For Now!

    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
  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. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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

    Day 16

    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

    Supplements I take

    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
  13. 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

    Vitamin E?

    Hi Everyone, Is vitamin E good for acne prone skin? Does it break you out? creams or supplements? Thanks and hope you all have a wonderful day!
  16. Good evening! So as an acne sufferer, and frequent visitor to this site I have seen countless posts by everyone in general with great information. So I wanted to swing by you a list of vitamins/minerals that I want to take in my battle against acne, and see if (for lack of better words) you would approve Few Stats about me: 22 years old, 5'11, 160 lbs. Lift weights 4-5 times a week. Student in college, smoke. Physically fit, however after recently tirelessly observing my blood sugar levels, they

    Pcos, New Supplement Regime?

    Heya! Been lurking forever, haven't posted much but think I'm finally at the breaking point. Quick background: Have had acne since puberty, only relief I've ever had was on Diane-35, which my gyno promptly took me off of after seeing my doctor had prescribed it. I do suffer from migraines as well, so the only pills she'll prescribe will have no effect on my acne. Have recently been diagnosed with PCOS, which explains quite a bit why no treatment has ever worked for me, whether it be antiobiot
  18. I didn't have bad skin but when I went on Birth control for a month I began getting cysts in my chin now I've stopped the pill and skin seems to be back to how it was before. How did you all cope?

    Diet and Probiotics

    I've just started a course of probiotics and vitamin supplements for my acne. Alongside this, I have dramatically changed my diet, cutting out dairy, wheat and sugar, with the advice and guidance of a nutritionist. However, it seems that may acne has become worse breaking out in white pimples over my face and a couple cystic spots. Is the theory that my skin could be 'detoxing' and readjusting to this new diet valid? Will it get worse before it gets better?

    I'm New :)

    I am a 32 year old wife and mother of two. I work in healthcare administration. And I HATE that I am still plagued by acne. After years of stalking this website during my battle with acne, I finally decided to join. Here's a little bit about me and my struggle... I started getting mild acne around age 12...very typical of the age and I was convinced that I would grow out of it...my mother swore that I would. I used every remedy that was available at the local CVS to a pre-teen with nothi

    My Secret To Clear Skin

    I have been fighting acne for over more than 10 years. Pretty much since my hormones went wild at my pr-teen years. As a youngster, my face always seemed pretty decent with only a few blemishes here and there. However, there always seemed to be at least one or two wondering around my face. It wasn't until my college years when I realize my ance issues were no longer a "teenager thing." I realized that my skin type was combination and acne prone. At the age of 22-26, my acne gave a whole turn to
  22. Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand. I will try to make this as short as possible. I'm 34 years old, male. I had been on Accutane for 3-4 courses. The first 2 courses I used Roaccutane by Roche. The first course was only 6 months and I was taking 20 mg every 2 days. I do not want to count this as a course because only 45 days after the derm put me off it, acne returned. The 2nd time was good. I was acne free for 2.5 years. The 3rd time I switched to a Chinese brand. Acne f

    Herbal Supplements

    I recently found success with the use of Dandelion and Burdock supplements. These are very helpful detoxers and also are said to help with acne. I am not very familiar with any scientific claims, but this worked for me, and was pretty inexpensive. My acne seemed like it was brought on by wheat and oils and also a lot of other normal foods, so I suspected something was wrong with my gut internally. This has helped dramatically! I hope this helps. (additionally I am a fan of apple cidar vinigar a
