Use pure jojoba oil on your face,..it's a wax ester that mimics sebum production and will make your face smooth and soft as well as control acne..I use it on my face, I've never had a breakout or a pimple from it

I believe acne is a kind of "skin diabetes".  The cure for Os is lowered carb intake and exercise. I did not exercise in my early 30s and had some pretty bad adult acne     Exercise also helps increase progesterone which is helpful for hormonal balance.  The best solution if you're an O and have breakouts or blackheads is to get on the diet and get to the gym.

I still get blackheads. No clue on how to get rid of them. They always come back.

The skin is your largest elimination organ. Acne is your body just getting rid of toxins.  Heal your gut and your skin will improve.

You could also try several months of oregon grape extract.  That's what got rid of my acne pre-BTD.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

I had blackheads too.  Honestly think it was caused by a lack of exercise and grains.  Have you checked your blood glucose levels after meals?  You could have high insulin and not even know it.  It has to be reduced.  I use some bhrt but 7 10 years after my adult acne my skin is normalized. I did use the bcp of course but have not had a skin "relapse" so to speak.

Wow me to.

Mine was so sensitive when I was not following blood type diet.
When I sleep facing the bed I usually have new acne the next morning. But now even when I sleep with my face over the fellow or bed nothing happens, But I tried sleeping with my back anyway because my older version of sleeping pushes the germs ,bacterias and dirt towards your skin.

Know my skin is glowing.  


Me too. =) Only food really affect my skin.

Eat compliantly and keep the sugar low eating less carbs with protein, you may also find the odd trigger foods like milk, or sunflower oil. keeps notes and take the offending food out of your diet completely for a week, then reintroduce to see if it happens again. good luck



Thank you for really good advice!

Acne is primarily an endocrine disorder.  Yes, some of the avoids like milk make it worse but this is because milk is an insulinemic food that is linked to diabetes.  The big picture on acne is still insulin & how it effects endocrine glands.  Simply blaming milk doesn't help you understand.

I've posted this already but it's need to know info for Os, series explains what's wrong with U.S. cow milk:
http://www.youtube.com/user/UndergroundWellness#p/search/0/MkPnUL5xfYA

Remove offending foods sure but this means low carb for Os.  You also need to exercise and may even need to do some intermittent fasting to fully smash insulin down for better endocrine health.  Go to sleep as early as you can also.  Staying up at night raises insulin.

Hi Smetana. I have great adult skin from following the Blood Type Diet. But if I get an avoid mixed up, yes acne will happen in a small amount. And for me it always happens in the same spots. I think the agglutinization goes to the weakest areas on my skin. Occasionally there can be hard, cystic areas if the toxin was ingested over the course of a few days. I am an Explorer and it takes a little longer for us to get all the toxins out ouf our bodies because of our slower livers. Anyway, one interesting article I read about acne is that there seems to be a correlation of these toxins attracting micro- parasites to move in to the skin as well. So, although our endocrine systems may be part of the picture, if we continue ingesting toxins and reach an unbalanced state, we can harbor more than acne. But I don't think this will happen to you at all.

Thank you for the interesting idea.
I think I should also know my secretor status to improve my health more.

I have had instant & persistent breakouts that also re occur in the same places, for years, as well as sometimes many days of no reactions in this way... The strongest conclusion I have finally been able to make, is that sugar, sulphur &/or suphites are all toxins that seem to give me the most problems!! As well as exposure to some perfumes/aftershaves & essential oils burned at work...(I can only conclude that as plants are sulphur based, these oils are concentrated sulphur bombs to my system?) It now seems conclusive that if I avoid any or all of the above, I have no real ongoing problems

As an O non-secretor, take coconut oil for your acne. Take capsules if you have to. That should fix the overgrowth in the gut and clear up the skin. Good luck.

Thanks; will try Wasn't sure the coconut oil agreed with me - I seemed to break out when I tried... However, no really conclusive evidence as to whether it was the coconut oil, as I was still exposed to the essential oil burning & other forms of sulphur at that stage

Forgot to add I have also started taking Evening Primrose Oil, VitC & VitB12 these last few weeks & a couple of other minor additions to my regime which may also have helped...

I've been gradually working my way into the BTD since February (about the same time as some major life changes and high stress, so I'm not sure how to account for all of the physical changes I've experienced). I've always struggled with acne since puberty (I'm 31 now), but it has actually gotten much worse since cutting out dairy, wheat, and sugar. It is cystic on my chin, jawline/upper neck, and now appears on my shoulders and back. I've also lost what I consider to be an unhealthy amount of weight. I'm down to 109 lbs from 120+ (5'6"). My chiropractor suggested my colon, but I've been very regular since I consume a ton of veggies and fruits. I've been trying to get more exercise, but it's tough when I'm on my feet all day at work.

Overall I feel pretty good, energy levels have been great, but something just seems to be off. I've been considering doing some cleansing/detox, maybe liver/gallbladder and/or colon.

Any thoughts?

Check if any particular veg & fruits could be contributing - Sometimes even natural sugars contribute to acne by their high glycemic index status?! Also are you eating organic meat or could it be meat that is hormone & preservative laced?

Could be the natural sugars - I do eat honey and maple syrup. I'm pretty good at sticking to the organic meats. What is odd to me is that my skin has gotten so much worse since making these positive diet changes. Is it possible it could be part of my body's detoxification?

I wonder if you might end up being an Explorer? (Next step after Blood Type Diet if you want to take that step & discover your genotype) Seems you are very sensitive - check anything environmental around you as well, in case a certain face cleanser, or makeup is bothering you??!!
