  1. I've been vegetarian for a year, and on January 30th, I officially went vegan (no animal products of any kind, dairy, eggs, honey, etc) I also started drinking lots of water (two and a half to three litres a day) Since I've been cooking for myself more now, I suppose my foods are less processed and lower in bad fats and sodium than before, but I still eat chips and chocolate and all those unhealthy things lol... I have always had bad skin on my face, mainly my forehead (half my fault, since I ha
  2. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  3. Hey everyone, I would like your opinion. Can A vegan beat acne? When I started college I turned to an all plant diet. Before this I never had acne in my life. After about two years, I broke out, became really sick, and almost lost my life. I did recover without eating any type of meat, but I could never get rid of my acne. Just Last July, I quit my Vegan lifestyle and decided to give meat a try again. My acne has disappeared and I am finally gaining weight. Is this just by chance or is there so
  4. hi guys i'm so frustrated right now. my acne is worst than ever. i'm 21 and i already went through a horrible phase of acne when i was 14 to 17. then i skin got clear and healthy. now it's getting out of control. i figured out that partly it's due to my diet and ive been trying to avoid many type of food that can trigger my inflammation. Now i stay away from -seafood -dairy -high sugary food -wheat/bread -white rice (which is my main meals for years) I only consume -chicken -vege

  6. I'm thinking of beginning the over-the counter version of the regimen, but I'm wondering if anyone has heard of the Keys Island Rx Foaming cleanser. I've been using it and I really like it, but I'm not sure how it will interact with the benzoperoxide part of the regimen. I've been taking Vitex and I think that's been making a significant difference (as well as Krill oil and Juice Plus). http://www.natureofbeauty.com/keys-islandrx.html Any comments or feedback would be greatly appreciat

    can vegans....?

    Hi guys. I'm thinking about going for tane since my cystic is very bad now; however, I am a vegan. Do you think that taking accutane while being a vegan is a very deadly combo?
  8. I just noticed how similar the paleo diet and raw vegan diets are. Aside from meat, raw vegans do not eat grain or legumes. The raw vegan recipes would certainly enrich the menu of those who are on the paleo diet. For example, raw vegans make cream sauces out of nuts (takes 1 minute with a blender), spaghetti out of vegetables (takes 1 minute) or lasanga from fresh zucchini noodles, marinara sauce and various veggies. For example, a raw vegan recipe for caesar dressing is 1 cup of avoca
  9. I couldnt believe when I went to whole foods n found these glutenfree/wheatfree/egg free/dairy free/casein free cookies!!! They looked exactly like oreos but arent even half the fat or has all that other crap oreo has. I though I would share w/u guys since I know most of u dont consume dairy or wheat/gluten products cause it breaks u out. I decided to see some reviews online for them and they were all excellent so I bought them. YUM so damn good. Only problem is that they are a bit expensive abo

    Low Fat Raw Vegan Diet

    Hello, I have been following a low fat raw vegan diet for some time now and my skin has seemed to remain clear and smooth. Although lately I have noticed my hair seems to be thinner. I am also very thin. I weigh about 135lbs and am roughly 6'1-2" Anyways I read an article on http://www.nealhendrickson.com/mcdougall/031100acnePF.htm by Dr. Mcdougall. He explained how these native diets eat a low fat diet and how they have clear skin. I decided to give it a go and to my suprise a few of my litt
  11. I just read about how excess iodine causes acne for some people, and my vegan multivitamin has 150mcg of iodine. I've been trying to find a vegan multivitamin that doesn't have iodine, but I haven't found one. Also, all the iodine free multivitamins I've found contain gelatin, which is an animal byproduct. So, does anyone have any suggestions?

    will going vegan help with my acne?
  14. I tried it last night and today my skin is considerably less oily. It feels kinda messy and sticky but since it's a night cream (more like a thick mousse) it's not a big deal. It also has a very intense smell, very citrusy; not bad but really strong. This morning I woke up and my skin wasn't perfectly matte but oil wasn't pouring out of my pores. During the day, I could tell the difference, my skin felt great even in the 100+ degree very humid day. The huge problem for me is that cod liver is l
  15. Hello everyone. I am 16, (I eat high carb low fat vegan) < including that so I can give you an idea of what I eat. So this summer my skin has gotten horrible. I could control it pretty well when I ate even worse during the school year - when I was dehydrated, ate a lot of oil and other junk. But now I don't eat anything processed or junky and I have such bad acne. I really don't understand, the only thing that really changed was the kind of rice that I was eating (short grain to long grain)

    Vegan diet + acne

    I probably shouldn't be posting here since I resorted to the dark side of pharmaceuticals, but has anyone here seen an improvement in their acne by going vegan? I am already a vegetarian but I am seriously considering taking the leap. Anyone's experience would help, thank you!
  17. Hello! I'm an 18 year old girl and I am struggling with constant pimples. I don't have proper acne, but I have regular breakouts. They are stronger one week before my period, but they never seem to go away. The pimples are not that big and they go away after a couple of days, but I always have them and nothing I do seems to work. I've tried EVERYTHING. I've tried every product ever and nothing worked. Now I'm going the natural way and my skin is better, but still not clear. I don't eat dairy or

    About a year ago, I decided to cut all dairy and animal products and products with animals. Went vegan, 100%. I've noticed that it has made my skin better and I really wish I had before/after pics, but, having this knowledge, I've realized I shouldn't eat animals anyway. Oh well, at least I have clearer skin, right? Come to think, most veg products I buy are organic thus covering another field and leaning towards a healthier lifestyle. I guess the lack of hormones, greases and other chemical by

    I hate having acne.
  21. Hi there, I have had acne since 11. It has always been mild/moderate. At age 14 I started using proactiv once a day (just at night- I used an aveeno cleanser in the morning). It cleared my skin moderately, but I continued use it because it seemed like it was the only thing that worked. I cut out dairy at 17 and saw huge improvements in my skin. Around the time I turned 18 I had dairy again for about two weeks, and my skin broke out. I then went vegan, and up until February of this year, it had
  22. Hey guys! I just wanted to share my story with y'all in hopes that maybe it can inspire someone to take the leap to heal their body and finally get rid of their acne. I have battled with acne since I was in 7th grade, was placed on birth control since 9th grade and countless of other acne meds since then. Not only did I have horrible acne that continued to get worse with age, but I also was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at he young age of 19. The odd thing was that I wasn't overweight and thy
  23. I am going to be starting Accutane in a day or two and my dermatologist told me to eat foods that are high in fat when I take my pill. I am a vegan and I am just wondering what some good foods are that are high in fat. So far I can think of olive oil, nuts (like peanut butter), and avocados. Would vegan butter be a food that is high in fat? Or can you tell me any other foods that would be good to eat?
  24. 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
  25. Hey everyone, My first post on here after being a member for years. I just need to reach out today, I read these forums all the time and they make me feel supported and like I'm not alone, but I still feel like I am. Do you find yourself just staring at everyone's skin around you? Your friends have perfect skin, and although I'm 20, I feel like people think I'm disgusting, like I'm dirty and young and like I don't try hard enough because it comes so easily to them and it's so easy to ta
