Extra Virgin Olive Oil breaks me out too if used on the skin but Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is great for it as well as Almond oil.

Am I crazy for documenting each of these 30 days with pictures?

I take a photo of my left cheek, right cheek, and forehead every night after washing my face.  I just wanna see the difference after the 30 days is up.

Have you considered giving up dairy? (just as an experiment?) Assuming you're like me and don't drink milk and only eat ice cream on occasion, there is surprisingly dairy in a lot of other stuff we eat. My sister swore up an down butter made her break out.. and I laughed it off.. but i believe her now. After doing some research, a lot of dermatologists believe it is either the cause of some acne, or makes it worse


I usually ONLY drink water, but every month it seemed I would get one big bump around the time of my period, but then for awhile I had started to get an occasional bump or 2 on my forehead. Sounds OK.. but I scar super easy.. and Im currently the color of computer paper.. so,, not so good. I decided to go Vegan for Lent, and sure enough I didn't get one bump at all. Then when I started incorporating things that had dairy again, sure enough, an occasional bump came back.. this time on my chin area.. which is worse in my opinion

So I was reading up about taking zinc for acne and started taking a supplement.

NEVER AGAIN.

It caused me to have the worst cramps of my life yesterday...vomiting, shivering, sweating, everything.  Zinc apparently decreases the calcium levels in your body.  Know what calcium supplements are good for in women?  Preventing cramps.  

So eff that.

Did you take it with food? And how many mg were you taking?

How long did it take and did your skin purge before it cleared?



About three months or so.   But keep in mind I have cystic acne.  So mine was severe.  Plus I cut out pop and sugary drinks from my diet.  My vice is teas and I use pure stevia, just a touch though.
