    Week 1

    I was gonna simply go dairy free but since i dont eat that much meat and i have recently seen some animal videos i decided to try veganism for 6 months in hopes of results. so far no new break outs have been puting lemon juice on my skin every other day and it is glowing! i see my scars diminition already but its probably my imagination, its too soon:) i am taking a nutrition class in college so i am eating alot of vegitibles, beans, and tons of fruit. i am drinking about 10 glasses of wate
  2. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br
  3. 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?

    It's mostly clear, fewer pimples and less severe, but the few I do have are large, red but not pustules. No current cysts, 2 blemishes on my left cheek, 1 blemish on my forehead. Healing marks between my eyebrows, right cheek, and chin. Red marks are fading from the Deming gel. What I'm doing right now, the diet and supplements is something I'd be doing if it helped my acne or not: Diet- Mostly Vegan (except for supplements), gluten-free, avoid soy, peanuts, citrus, and avoiding IgG re
  5. There comes a point where you just have to accept your acne for what it is. It is how your body detoxes. There are several ways people's bodies get rid of toxins. These include: through skin, breath, urine, bowels, and sweat. Most people who appear to have clear skin probably solely detox when they go to the bathroom. Today, they are the lucky ones, but they live without any warning signs of the havoc that is going on inside of their bodies. Those lucky people are those that will continue to eat

    I'm 95% clear... one inflamed blemish and 2 healing spots, 4 red marks. I don't want to clog up my signature with my routine, diet, etc. What's working for me right now, the diet and supplements is something I'd be doing if it helped my acne or not (fortunately, it does): Diet- Vegan, gluten-free, avoid soy, avoiding all IgG response foods (19 total) Rice protein every morning Supplements- Multi with Iron and Iodine (Iron and Iodine for thyroid) Vitamin D 5000 IU (tested low
  7. 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
  8. Hey guys. I'm new here. Anyways, as most of you-- I basically tried EVERYTHING there is to offer in the market but nothing ever worked for me. Ever since I was 10 (which was when I first started having my periods and now I'm 19 nearly 20), I was already experiencing acne breakouts. My mom would send me to the best dermatologist every Saturday in my city 'til I was 13. Constant extraction from the doc. Constant shit on my face and it would never ever stop! So my dermatologist then suggested Ac
  9. 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

  12. 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)
  13. Hi everyone. I'm a 25 year old woman suffering from hormonal acne on my chin. I used to only get cysts, now I get a combination of cysts, pustules and pimples but only ever on my chin. I'm fed up. On trimethoprim to try and treat it. Did the dairy free diet for a month and didn't really think it had worked but once I reintroduced dairy I had the most horrendous breakout ever. I'm thinking about stepping it up to the next level and doing an organic, vegan, low GI, no refined sugar diet for 3 m
  14. Hi All! I went on a vegan diet about 2 months ago, and maybe I'm just being quick to judge, but I am not seeing many results. My diet is made up of fruits, veggies, legumes,whole grain breads and pastas, many vegan alternative products like fake cheese and meats, dairy free milks, vegan junk food on occasion (vegan chocolate, potato chips, coconut ice cream, vegan desserts),tofu and soy products. I also drink a ton of water, get plenty of sleep and excercise, as well as keep up with a skinc
  15. Hi and Thank-you for dropping by, My name is Hannah, a 22 year old female looking for allies to support each other through our difficult journey in battling acne. I had acne since my teens, but got 90% clear through changes in diet and taking supplements. I've tried from paleo to low-fat vegan, and I am still looking for what works best for me and my life style. (Of course I don't neglect traditional medicine, I've experience great results from anti-biotic topicals and dan's regime) I
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20. Hello everyone! First time posting in this forum because I need advice and suggestions! I've been a vegan for about a month now. Really, I stumbled upon it. After doing a lot of research trying to find a cure to my acne, I decided to give up dairy. Looking for dairy free recipes led to a lot of vegan recipes, so I just stopped eating meat too since it wasn't needed in these recipes. In about 2 weeks, I saw a huge improvement in my skin. Even to this day, I have not had a major breakout like I
  21. 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
  22. Ok, so some background: I've had acne since I was in about 8-9 grade (I am now in 11). I now have moderate-severe acne. Tried SA (didn't work and sometimes dried my skin), BP (worked a little, but not worth the dryness, Epiduo (worked a little, not worth dryness), Baking Soda (didn't work, dried me out) I just quit the Epiduo a few weeks ago after two months of trying. It was painful, dried me out, and wasn't worth the minimal results I saw. Coincidentally, around the time I quit Epiduo I
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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?
