so i am almost 25 years old now, getting married in a month, and i still have bad acne. i have tried near everything (inlcuding seeing a dermatologist), and nothing seems to be working. i am currently using proactiv for about 2 months now, and it is only working a little, but nothing to brag about. is there anything else that i could try? my biggest fear is getting my wedding pics and i look hideous. my future wife wants to lose weight for the wedding, i want clear skin.....please help

I did a search in earlier information given earlier by me on this site. See below...

For acne eliminate all refined or concentrated sugars

do not eat foods containing Trans-fatty acids: Milk, Milk products, margarine, shortening, and other synthetic hydrogenated vegetable oils, avoid fried foods.

Remember: Avoid Milk and Milk products

avoid salty foods

don't use greasy creams

Wash your pillow case and sheets in chemical free (no added color or fragrances) detergents

Consider using the following supplements:
Multivitamin (ultrapreventative III)
Vit C 500 - 1000 mg 3X/day
Vit E 400 IU/day
Chromium 400 - 600 mcg/day
Zinc 45-60 mg/day
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA)
Tea Tree soap for washing with.

Cysts need to be removed by your MD. These are usually a genetic trait.


Here's some links

This is what I answered to your same question with back in 2003...

Try SeaBreeze to clean your pores in your back. Apply to back using cotton balls (someone else will have to do this for you). During cleaning when a new cotton ball is used and doesn't come back dirty then you have cleaned the skin area enough. Use SeaBreeze every night before going to bed for 4 weeks. If it doesn't seem to help in 4 weeks then most likely it won't. If your back gets worse after several days of using SeaBreeze, discontinue use.

Use Tea Tree soap to wash your back with (again you may need someone else to apply it to your back) everyday. It can be used in conjunction with SeaBreeze. Try it for 4 weeks and see how you are doing. If your acne is clearing up continue to use.

Taking the following supplements may help as well:

Gamma Linolenic Acid (essential fatty acid) to keep the skin smooth, soft, and to repair damaged skin.

Zinc 30-80 mg/day. Aids in the healing of tissues and helps to prevent scarring.

Your diet should be high in fiber and low in fried and fatty foods.

Increase your consumption of the following foods: almonds, beets, cashews, and swiss chard.

Avoid spinach, rhubard, alcohol, butter, caffeine, cheese, chocolate, cocoa, cream, eggs, fish, fried foods, hot and spicy foods, hydrogenated oils and shortenings, margarine, meat, poultry, wheat, and soft drinks.

Try eliminating dairy from your diet for 1 month since acne may be an allergic reaction to dairy products. After 1 month you can start using dairy at that time if the acne gets worse then you know you have an allergy to it.

Try those suggestions and let me know how it goes after a month or 2.
