IF you have really bad acne (Im talking cyst) THE best you can do is go see a dermatologist and maybe start to be on accutane it works I never have acne now
If you have a regular acne but that still wont go away you can be on antibiotics for 1 or 2 months and ull get special creme like effederm and cutacnyl5% these are the best cream ever and theyre so cheap
I do hear a lot of doctor prescribing the pills right away I dont really agree with that but for some people it does make wonder
I would recommend gym on a hard level like ropes and running when u feel your cheeks are gettin red its when things will start to get reall good your body is gettin read of all the bad stuff your skin is producing new cells
also go see a dermatologist or specialist to get a deep peel with vitamic c or some laser too

yup you can ask your regular doctor or take an appointment with a dermatologist directly u will always need a prescription for antibiotics

he will define the period ull need to use it 1 to 3 months max
if its regular acne it will go away really fast
this is the name of those antibiotics tétracyclines (doxycycline, lymécycline, minocycline)

Really? How is that acne on different face areas have different causes? Never knew that before My face is pocketful of acnes esp around the cheeks & chin areas. I'm using the Eucerin Dermopurifyer which targets at eliminating acne. However it didn't really works I'm not sure about the Fish Oil capsules.

As far as I know it is not really accurate what you've written. Actually, acne/spots on the cheek area are food issues/allergies and stuff, because it comes right from your liver. At least I was taught that the condition of your liver and areas influence your cheeks' skin. What is more, your chin is influenced by hormones, definitely not cheeks. That is why women USUALLY get spots before menstruation on chin and nearby areas.

But this is what I was taught by people who help me go through my severe allergies - and in my case it is true. My liver is damaged thanks to chemicals in food products and when I eat something bad I immediately get acne on my cheeks.

I don't know where you've read it, for me it is very misleading and I would love to see your sources, maybe there is something I still don't know and can educate myself.

I'm not sure about how correct I am but I definitely remember reading about acne sometimes being hormonal. I do recommend fish oil though, I've never tried it but will be buying it next week. 90% of the reviews of fish oil say it works, so I'm gonna try it.

^ This is what I know to be true, too.

Jawline as well (as chin), hormonal.
As far as liver/toxicity problems, this is a consideration too for anyone who's considering accutane R/x. It is definitely not 100% effective for 100% of the people; I was on it for 2 full courses, years apart...I'm still struggling.
And if you go the antibiotic route, it will result in some clearing but that also presupposes that whatever's causing the acne is going to be cured by the antibiotic, vs. just temporarily squelched (hormonal, food or product causes).

Food sensitivities & digestion is big too.

I'm on long term antibiotics for my skin, it seems to be clearing up but it takes at least six weeks to start so it's no quick fix.

As for accutane, I personally would never recommend it. The side effects are common and very, very severe. For girls, it can cause severe, life threatening birth defects when you come to being pregnant and I think you have to also go on specific birth control pills while on accutane. But it can also cause severe depression, to the point of suicide and self-harm. I've never needed to go on it as my skin has been reasonably okay, but my brother did and although his skin looked great, we nearly lost him! The medicine combined with quite an intensive lifestyle (he's a 5th year medical student) caused very bad depression, to the point where my mother had to move up to his flat and stay for weekends. I know that side effects do not affect everyone and I know people who are on the drug but have only had side effects of anxiousness and cracked skin/lips, but it's just a warning if you are prone to low spells or your family is.

ALSO I'm on the pill, which has helped my skin dramatically during my younger teenage years. One called 'Dianette' worked amazingly, but unfortunately gave me headaches. Another called 'cilest' worked well for skin too, but again, headaches! I think the changing of these pills is what has caused my skin to flare up, but the antibiotic route definitely helps!

Let us know how it works and fingers crossed

I am extremely anxious to read new stuff about acne treatment and all kinds of things influencing your skin condition, so it's always good to know something new.

My dermathologists is on vacation until next week, so i started using differin 0,1 yesterday, since it's regular Acne i think it might act fast (or at least i hope so ), i'll go to see him anyway. The thing is, that i'm desperate cause university starts in 3 more weeks, and i don't want to come back like this

I think it's really interesting the theory of hormonal and food, in my case it use to appear acne after i ate chocolate, of course now i'm not eating it, and usually after i shave. Anyway i onl y have around my jawline and a little bit in my forehead, which i have never had.
I would to know what food you shouldn't eat.
anyway let's see what happens

When it comes to food you are not supposed to eat - there are tests you can run on your blood and they actually unravel certain products you are forbidden to eat if you want to be healthy. There are clinics all over the world which pride themselves in having these tests.

Personally, I trust the pendulum test, which is not as sophisticated as lab tests, but serves its purpose better. My mum runs the pendulum test for me and basically you put (for instance) chocolate on a white sheet of paper in front of you and someone (who does not touch you at the very moment) takes the pendulum and it starts moving - if it moves in your direction as 'nodding' - it means it is healthy for you. If it starts moving from left to right as 'no' - it means it is not good. We were taught this technique by an old Mongolian lama, as my mum is deeply engaged in buddhism.

I know it sounds unbelievable but for me it works. I was told that I can't eat any cheese, but after the pendulum test - It turned out that I can eat gruyere cheese from Switzerland.

In my opinion everything what works is worth trying, especially in the case of women's acne.

OMG I'm so gonna try this test, i have nothing to loose and it looks easy doing, although it seems pendulums are being used for a lot of tests... Anyway, if you say it serves for the purpose then i'll do it, i trust buddhist stuff.

You know, it does not do any harm, so why not try it Read first about the pendulum, 'cause there are some stuff to digest before Fingers crossed!
