    Yes, I think the detox could help you with that.

    What is your user name on other boards?? Who are you?

    Take care
    Maya

  2. I was makaveli at absolute board, I haven’t post much, just a few topics, you always liked to help. So I called you my favorite sister, it’s a joke ok? I don’t want to scare you, I am just friendly.

    Maybe you have some advice for my regimen:
    NiveaVisage clensing gel (for oily skin, twice a day)
    NiveaVisage toner (for oily skin, I use it weekly)
    I don’t moisturise since I have oily skin. (should I, what’s good moisturiser)
    Once a week I use FREEMAN peeloff mask (blueberries and champagne, http://www.freemancosmetics.com)
    ESI Aloe vera gel 99,9% sometimes I put it overnight, and on red marks when I am home.

    I used to take 5-10grams b5 a day and it helped a lot, HUGE reduction of oil, smaller pores (hair loss was problem, I don’t know if b5 has to do anything with hairloss). I used to take fishoil (naturalwealth) but it was pretty weak 320/180 (epa dha or dpa i don’t know). Problem is that I live in small country and I don’t have enough money to buy those supplements. I take NaturalWealth ABC+ Multivitamin/mineral. I liked results while I was on B5 and fishoil, but I took it apart. If I could buy high dosage fishoil and 2,5 – 4 grams b5/daily I would be TOTALY CLEAR. I am 90% clear, some red marks from acne b4. I had cyst acne only a few times, I have whiteheads and blackheads and inflamed whiteheads (red) sometimes with sometimes without (white) head. I have problem with milia also. Derm used to clear my milia (little white dots like perls) under my eyes, but now I am saving money for next derm appointment, to clear my milia (I have 2-3 milia one (maybe two) on left side and one on right side, under eyes)

    I suffer from a bit large pores (not very big just a little bigger then normal) on my forehead and under eyes (in line of nose).

    Where ever I go I am saw people with nice skin, no scars, even skin tone. So it looks like I am alone in my problem. My family don’t have much understanding for my problem.

    Please help, suggest something. I have mild acne (sometimes moderate) but it’s so persisted. I breakout whenever I eat: salt, sugar, smoked meat, high fat food, whey protein (since I go to gym), creatine makes me dehydrated. I stoped eathing all foods that break me out, but I have no choice since I don’t have enough money I mainly eat bread. I have athletic type of body and no problems with weight.

    Sorry about my bad english, english is not my primary language, but I hope you can understand what I wrote.

    Thank you for your time and your helping soul.
    I would like to help if I can.
    Good luck.

  3. Welcome man… your english is good enough.. no problem understanding you at all 😀 In fact the person who runs this forum speaks english as a second language :mrgreen

  4. Makaveli

    Your English is great! Where do you live? (I’m very nosey! 😀 )

    I understand you do not have much money to buy supplements, but maybe you could add extra virgin olive oil in your diet. Also, drink plenty of water (7-9 glasses a day) to help flush out toxins. Too much bread isn’t good for anyone. From my experience, a better diet is to eat more protein (meat and fish and nuts) with vegetables and fruit and LESS carbohydrates. If you can add more fish (like salmon and mackreall) to your diet and eat this with a large portion of vegetables covered in Olive oil, this will help a lot.

    The scotch tape method (see the thread about this) is good for helping with the read marks and will also exfoliate the skin so that your pores are finer and more clear, so it will be harder for spots to thrive.

    Unless someone has acne or had acne, it is not easy for them to understand. We will be like a family for you. Just post when you need some help. OK?

    From your big sister, Maya! 😀

  5. Thanks for great advice.

    In fact I drink about 8 glasses of water daily, more when I workout.
    I used to take 1-2gram vitamin c daily, this helps reduce inflamation.

    I live in Croatia, small country next to Italy, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Slovenia. Your name Maya I would call Maja on croatian language, when I was in elemetary school there was girl in my class called Maja. Dear God she was beutiful, and I was handsome too, girls liked me, I had beautiful “babyface” until my 15-16 year then it became oily and spoty and I wasn’t pretty as I used to be. I miss that much affection, since I have a great sense of humor, I was always entertaining and liked to hang out a lot. I have 3-4 really small scars (like enlarged pore) but I have 2 chickenpox scars, one on my left cheek and one near nose. My skin is still VERY VERY good I would just like to improve condition.

    Scotch tape?
    I would try it, on red marks you said and scars?

    “From my experience, a better diet is to eat more protein (meat and fish and nuts) with vegetables and fruit and LESS carbohydrates.”

    This would be great since I workout and need a LOT of protein.

    I always have extra virgin oil in my kitchen, but I don’t like taste and smell. Should I try to eat that, please promise me that I will have better skin :wink

    I have one great info page on acne, I will post it later.

    Bye bye.
    To my favorite sister (Maya) with love, Makaveli.

    PS I think I will try fishoil again, when I get some money, I really feel my brain when I am using this magic oil. It’s pretty bad I don’t like to eat fish.

    Please correct me when I am wrong, I would like to learn english better but I don’t have anyone to practise speaking with.

    Good luck.

  6. ACNE

    Acne vulgaris appears at puberty and affects almost 80% of teenagers and in many cases heralds the onset of puberty; it often precedes menarche. Acne maybe provoked by the androgenic sex hormones which increase the secretion of the sebaceous gland. The sebum so produced may be broken down to fatty acids which may provoke, in conjunction with bacteria present, an inflammatory response in the sebaceous gland.

    Acne vulgaris attacks regions containing large sebaceous glands, i.e., the face, back and the upper anterior chest. The lesion consists of closed (white) or open (black) comedones (black-heads), papules, pustules, nodules, and abscesses. The abscesses may form channels under the skin, which then form fistulas to discharge pus on the surface.

    Acne form lesions may be provoked by drugs, especially corticosteroids, chlorinated hydrocarbons (termed chloracne), DDT, tars, soaps, antibiotics or any irritant of the sebaceous gland.

    Treatment modalities range from squeezing pustules, antibiotics, vitamin A creams and dietary change. Best results are achieved if the host tissues are supported or strengthened against bacterial or fungal infection as well as improving healing rate and reducing inflammation. The mucopolysaccharide aloe-mucin in conjunction with vitamin A has shown to be remarkably useful in this regard.

    BIOCHEMICAL DETERMINANTS

    The skin of acne patients shows greater activity of 5 alpha reductase, an enzyme which converts testosterone to a more potent androgen – dihydrotestosterone. Cytochrome P450, a detoxifying enzyme can accelerate the destruction of this active androgen. Cytochrome P450 can be induced by high protein diets and vitamin C supplementation.

    Male acne patients have significantly decreased levels of erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase which is normalised with Vitamin E and Selenium. This results in decreased free radical peroxidation.

    50% of acne patients have increased circulating endotoxins, which increases the Cu/Zn ratio and thus increases complement and fibrin formation.

    Vitamin B6 deficiency increases uptake and sensitivity to testosterone.

    Thyroid therapy also can help.

    Despite adequate vitamin A intake, acne patients have significantly lower serum Vitamin A levels than controls. They also have depressed concentrations of vitamin A in unaffected epidermis. Isotretinion – increases retinol in epidermis but not blood retinol levels.

    Retoninic acid is a natural metabolite of vitamin A that cannot be converted to retinol. It would appear that acne patients have a defect in vitamin A metabolism.

    Patients with acne have a low concentration of linolenic acid in the sebum and EFA deficiency in the pilosebaceous epithelium which might account for the characteristic follicular hyperkeratosis of Acne. However, prolonged administration of EFA and Vitamin B5 is required to overcome this hyperkeratosis.

    NUTRITIONAL TREATMENT

    Avoid all refined sugars, saturated fats and processed foods.

    Improve digestion by taking digestive enzymes (DEF and Hydrozyme) or apple cider vinegar with meals.

    Increase intake of zinc and vitamin A rich foods.

    Check for food sensitivity in any individual in whom acne appears in their late twenties. Salicylate-rich food is usually the culprit.

    Avoid all antacids and supplement with Hydrozyme.

    Garlic supplementation may also help reduce infection.

    Apply MPS healing emollient to enhance healing and the normalisation of the skins surface.

    Supplement with high dose pentothenic acid (2.5g). It decreases sebum production. Deficiency of pentothenic acid results in altered metabolism of fatty acids. Pantothenic acid is a cofactor in the activity of Co enzyme A which is involved in many reactions. eg. sex hormone production, fatty acid oxidation etc. The fatty acid metabolism due to a lack of B5 results in a build up of fat droplets in the sebaceous glands.

    Avoid commercial soft drinks with brominated vegetable oils, reduce milk consumption (decrease of hormone content) and Trans fatty acids.

    Menstrual acne responds to Vitamin B6 and Folic Acid.

    Increase Chromium intake (HGF) – which improves insulin effectiveness in converting linoleic acid to prostaglandin.

    Zinc supplementation is as effective as tetracycline.

    Acne Rosacea responds to Vitamin B2 supplementation resulting in chemical presentation of hyperkeratinization and increase sebum secretion.

  7. I had dark circles all of my life (since I was a kid). Now I don’t. This changed when I started eating green vegetables.

  8. I thought everyone forgot and don’t want to read my post.
    But this info is awesome. 😀 ALL ACNE PATIENTS HAVE VITAMIN A DISORDER. And accutane is vitamin a in other form.

    C u latter, bye.
