  1. Hi I'm a 17 year old male and have had acne since 13/14. I never get cystic acne but I have a face full of medium sized red dots. I used benzoyl peroxide with clindamycin as phosphate 1% and benzoyl peroxide 5% last summer and my face was almost completely cleared but I still had about 15 red spots on either side of face so I went to my doctor again because my prescription was used up and she prescribed Epideo to finish clearing up my face. Ok, that is when ALL HELL broke LOOSE! I started breaki
  2. hey guys! it's been so long since i updated. retin a really does make your skin smooth but it has made mine shiny (bc my skin is now thin) but whatever i really dont mind. still not clear though but my acne has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. and it f idk if it's because of teh vitamins im taking (d3,a,zinc,niacin) or really because of retin a. anyway will update u guys if anything better happens. and when ppl say that retin a makes pimples go away fast, it really is legit. it's like it hastens pim
  3. Hello everyone, I am 22yo female half black and half white. I suffered from acne since I was 13yo : extremely oily skin, black and white heads, occasionnal big painful zits as well as some cystic acne. I live in Paris France, where it's cloudy and cold most of the time. I'm inside an office all day. I wash my face and body with Dudu Osun, African black soap. I use Dudu Osun on my face to remove make up, then I cleanse it with jeunesse global luminesce cleanser. I've been keeping this c
  4. hv acne for ~10 yrs, diff kinda, clogged scarred pores, stubborn discoloration, getting few scarring as well. overall looking very very bad so my relatives pulled me to the lab to make full blood analysis, also liver, kidneys, vit D3 n hormones N GUESS WHT: my blood is perf! liver perf kidneys perf thyroid perf no inflammation whatsoever!! (immunity great etc) BUT MY PROBS ARE: too low vit D3 (30.1) too high uric acid too high certain hormone (which i actually expec
  5. Hey guys, I've had acne for 9 years. I started breaking out on my forehead when I was 10 years old, and I was always picked on, and even bullied, because of my skin. In middle school, my acne spread to my cheeks, chin, and temples. In high school, it became severe and inflammatory (I was 14-15 at that time) and it covered 80% of my face except the jawline. When I was 17-18, the acne transformed itself into tiny little bumps that covered every inch of my face. I took Accutane for 3 months (da
  6. I've been seeing a lot of posts and thread responses lately from people who read about the magic that is the hormone D3 and what it could and should be doing for their skin, but find that either they were never able to achieve the desired results from the start, or found their skin was no longer responding as positively to it as it once did. Most of them will either keep upping their dosage and find themselves more and more frustrated and confused that they aren't seeing results, or quit taking
  7. Where to start?... I have just come off Accutane in March and now I am back to square 1, I have spots again. I have since tried Vitamin D3 at 3200iu a day for 4 months, Zinc 45mg a day for over a year, Vitamin C 1000mg a day for over a year. I am now trying witch hazel with 600mg dispersible aspirin as a toner am and pm. I got the idea from acne.org, this website has been so helpful to me with such a wealth of information, the best thing is that the information comes direct from pe
  8. ok so i started a post about this when i first stopped using tretinoin cream and its been a month since i stopped using it but before i get into what happened i will give you a little history. Ok i started getting acne when i was about 18 or 19 never really had it in high school but once i got out it began. Anyway i started getting acne and i was really worried when it started worsening so i ordered pro activ . I thought proactiv would be my savior but after using it for a few months it really m
  9. I have been looking for an alternative to topical treatments and after doing some research on the message boards have started off with 50mg zinc and 1000IU's of Vitamin D3. I took the first pills yesterday morning and found that last night I experienced really vivid dreams which I've never had before. I also feel asleep early this afternoon (I was very tired) and the same thing happened again, they were so vivid it felt so real and a bit disturbing. Has anyone else found this ? I am on anti-d
  10. Can someone help me figure out what is going on with my skin and what type of skin do I have. In the last two years something happened to my chin. I have large pores all over my face but the chin as slightly smaller ones. Every couple of days I get this weird grainy texture all over. I have to literally take the edge of my tweezer and flick out a small grain or pebble out of tons of pores. What are these and is my skin oily, dry or dehydrated? I cant go one day without these building up..So
  11. Hi, I'm thinking of adding Vitamin D supplement as part of my regime, but i'm just wondering if its best to get Vitamin D or Vitamin D3? This may sound like a stupid question, but what are the differences? Also what are your experiences with taking Vitamin D? I'm very limited to sun exposure so i think it will useful. Is it good at reducing breakouts/ scarring and so on? Thanks guys, ur help is appreciated
  12. I'm looking for a really good multivitamin. Preferably either a softgel or liquid form for good absorption. Right now I'm taking 3 omega 3 pills a day, 4 vitamin d3 pills a day, 3 magensium, and I'm not really getting any calcium (which really concerns me). I'd like to have a GOOD quality multivitamin that will give me a good base of vitamins like vitamin A, K12, calcium, zinc, magneisum, C vitamin, B vitamins, for days where I dont get ALL my veggies in there, but that also contains at least 2
  13. read somewhere here that isotretinoin elevated the level of calcium in body, i was taking a vitamin d3 cap that comes with calcium as its another ingredient but have stopped after reading that topic. right now i have not yet found vitamin d3 alone in a cap ,but just to reconfirm it -is it true that i shouldnt take calcium after or on accutane?
  14. Right then start to my accutane journey not very good at these logs so it won't be up as good as some accutane logs i have seen around Just started 40mg isotretinoin 1 week ago, PICTURES are in video and i will post a video every 4 weeks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnYck7O7QV0 effects im feeling and are happening at moment : Dry skin Skin's getting worse aching joints tiredness headaches Im also taking these vitamins : Fish oil 2000mg (for gym) zinc 25mg
  15. Hi everyone, So I'm starting my accutane journey, and logging it here. It might help other people as others have helped me, and hopefully it will help me through this too! I don't know all the lingo like most people on here, but I think I would be classed as persistent mild to moderate acne which I've probably had about 10 years ish (I'm a 24 years old, male). The dermatologist said that I'd tried everything else so it was either try Roaccutane, or wait to see if it goes away in a few y
  16. Hello everyone, I'm a new poster to the forum but have been lurking for several months and I love reading the holistic section of the forum and have tried a few suggestions with regard to vitamins. Just a tiny bit of background info as i'm hoping someone can make a suggestion of the next possible step. Anyway i'm 24 years old and i've been off the Yasmin contraceptive pill for nearly 2 years, since then i've broken out in acne on my chin mainly but also my forehead. I've had some 'ok'
  17. For at least 6 months I have had clear skin and I feel guilty not sharing it with others, and even though everyone's body is different, here is what worked for me.... Notes: I had continuous moderate acne since middle school. I am now in my early 20's. Results came very quickly upon starting this (pretty random) system. Once in a blue moon I will get a little on top of the skin pimple, but it's always very small and not a big deal at all. I still have oily skin and flat red marks left be
  18. So I just had an appointment with my derm last Friday and had yet another topical prescribed. I'm currently using Retin-A Micro, but since my skin is getting worse and worse (although I've been using the RAM since January and my skin was totally clear until a couple months ago), I'm thinking of quitting. I also take Lo Estrin Fe 1/20, which I'm not sure has any effect on my skin (I've been on it for a few years, and I've been clear off and on during that time). I'm tired of going to the derm
  19. I've been doing the water only treatment for the past two weeks and dead skin has been accumulating on face and i've read from this post http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/303211-my-cure-for-acne/ that its a sign of my face healing and i was wondering if this is true because i know i've done a lot of damage to my facial skin and would be extremely glad if this was true. I really dont want to seem like a naive fool but i dont want to go around with a bunch of dead skin on face eithe
  20. I'm curious what the acne.org community does when it comes to sun or vitamin d3. I know for me, I haven't been out in the sun much at all since high school, I'm 23 now. And before high school I was home schooled for 3 years basically zero sun. I haven't done a vitamin d3 deficiency test yet, but I'm almost convinced I am and I'm curious if others here are as well. So many people are afraid of skin cancer and either avoid the sun completely or slather on the sun block(which blocks all of the goo
  21. Okay so I'm trying to be my own detective here and need some help from anyone who knows alot about acne formation. Basically, I was completely clear during pregnancy and am trying to figure out why since it was the only time since my childhood I've had such nice skin. So I did some research on how the body changes when pregnant and this is what I found: Endocrine system (non-reproductive) Pituitary * FSH/LH fall to low levels. * ACTH and melanocyte-stimulating hormone increase. *
  22. Since I've had limited success with topicals I decided it's time to try a different route...vitamins! I collected some information from this forum and from googling and decided to buy: B-Complex [contains Riboflavin, Niacin, B6, B12, Pantothenic Acid] Vitamin A 10,000 IU Vitamin D3 1,000 IU
  23. I started taking a few different vitamins a couple of weeks ago to help with my acne, and wanted to know how long it'd be until I can expect to see results. These are the vitamins I'm taking everyday: Vitamin A (10,000) Vitamin C (500) Vitamin D3 (1000) Vitamin E (400) Fish Oil (Two tablets a day, I don't remember what the amount is) Everyday I get around 2-3 small white heads/papules (Don't know the exact term, just something tiny with a head that you can pop with a needle), sometimes I'll g
  24. I haven't been on this forum in a while, mainly because my skin is totally clear and my health is really good so I don't need to do much research on it anymore. But I notice that there are still a lot of people struggling here, so I'm going to create this cheat sheet below on how to really get clear skin: The Clear Skin Cheat Sheet Theory: Cavemen, humans living in their natural environment did not have acne. Mimic the natural environment of your ancestors and you will not have acne either.
  25. Allow me to explain.. Well, I had really wonderful skin all through high school. This past summer, before beginning my first semester at college, I developed this hard bump on my chin area. It wasn't the kind of bump that has anything in it && will eventually pop by itself. It was just hard and it was just there and I thought it would go away eventually. I really didn't have a regimen. I had been eating junk food for the longest time && never had any troublesome acne before th
