This looks like it's got interesting information
http://holisticonline.com/Remedies/acne.htm

I'm someone who had acne issues since I can remember.  One of my sisters has the same problem and two aunts did too (but one was on my father's side and one on my mother's side).

We all have/had large pores and oily skin.  The pore-less people in my family seem to have
clear skin.  So, there is something about the large pores that seems to be a common denominator
in my little acne group.

My kids have clear skin and so does my husband and no matter what they eat, it doesn't
produce breakouts on their faces, backs or anywhere on their skin, so I'm deducting that acne has to come from something more than a good or bad diet.  

Acne is a type of bacteria.  I've tried just about everything topical and even Chinese herbal
products to no avail.  I'm 65 and my skin still will break out in any random place (my neck,
my shoulders, my back or my face) and often nothing I'm eating is setting this off.  I'm not
getting the type of acne I had when I was a kid and teenager...I'm getting one pimple in
one spot and with topical Tea Tree Oil, it goes away. BUT why it appears in the first place
is a conundrum for me.

I take probiotics (a LOT of different kinds) and pre-biotics from inulin.  I drink a lot of water,
eat a lot of greens, take MSM, sometimes olive leaf extract...don't use bad oils, don't eat
transfats and still my predisposition for acne is part of my constitution.

I hate to sound like a downer, but I think acne can be managed but not ever really completely
eliminated. I've had a lifetime to experiment and have yet to find a solution.  Yes, the dermatologists can give you meds...you can sit in the sun (although that sometimes makes me break out), you can take a lot of supplements, eat really well and still, sometimes a breakout occurs anyway.  

When you consider that topical acne preparations contain ingredients like benzoil peroxide
or types of things that deal with bacteria, the fact that they work for some people and work
on the surface, but more breakouts occur, makes me think that the deeper bacteria is somewhere in the gut.

I became gluten intolerant as an adult.  I'm wondering if I've always been gluten
intolerant but it took a lifetime of a leaky gut and gut damage to allow bad bacteria to seep
into places it didn't belong. Like on my skin....I've always wondered if I had never been given gluten foods, would my skin have not reacted to the acne bacteria..  

I would love to say that my skin is perfect on the Warrior diet or when I do food combining...but for me, (and maybe it will be different for others), I have not found a real
permanent solution for acne.

I have better skin now since adding the GTD Diamonds and Supers.  It still is more at that time of the month, tho  and so are my cravings and such.  

I have not cut out my GTD avoids because I feel too deprived.  I think this may be the prob.  

There are at least 6 GTD avoids that I do consume that are either Bene or neutral on BTD B.

I never heard of Bacne before what is difference between acne and bacne? I have acne for many years since I was 11 yrs old, but not serious severe ones. I had some severe ones when I was teenager and young adult.

I suffer from this too - always have some sort of break out on my face - little but at 38, annoying.  I think there is a strong correlation between anxiety and acne. When I was on Zoloft (very very low dose, my skin was completely clear all the time - regardless of what I ate.  
As a hunter, I am prone to anxiety if I don't work out enough - basically whatever I do that increases the anxiety, leads to break outs.

Are any of you who suffer from acne - highly strung or anxious people?

Yeah.....that's me.  If things are perfectly quiet and I can just go about my business doing my own thing (gardening, drawing, music-ing, eating, etc.) I'm relaxed.  Get me overwhelmed with stimuli (noise, questions ["Mama, why---"  "Mama, what---"  "Mama, how---" which is fine when I've had sleep, but not when I haven't!) and I get anxious and very stressed.  I can't tie it in with skin though.  I still think mine's food and/or Candida related.

It could be anxiety but since I've started the BTD that has almost gone away.  I'm with Ribbit, I think mine is candida/yeast/GTD avoids that I still consume.

choc. & sugar mostly

You still eat chocolate and sugar?  Gee, I'm not that bad.  At least my avoids are like chick peas, black pepper and rum.  Not all together, mind you.

I am addicted, and working through it.  Too bad there is not a rehab for the mild/insidious drugs.

I am very interested in this thread.  I had pretty bad acne and bacne as a teen.  Now I have sons
with varying degrees of it still.  I think what Sheri said is interesting.  I also just read what suzedgar
said about zoloft.  Doesn't it sound like the gut is involved there also?  I mean zoloft affects serotonin, which is mostly produced in our guts if I am correct.  Back to the leaky gut that Chloe mentioned.  I know that I grew up eating lots of high glycemic and wheat based foods.  I did eat other good things for an O, but  the combination may have been the problem.  I remember a dermatologist I saw when I was in high school.  He wanted me to get off all types of sweet cakes, jams, doughnuts, stuff that my family ate on a regular basis.  My  mom's parents were german bakers.....It was what I thought was impossible then.....
But after several years of staying off wheat, my allergies are much improved.  So is my skin, but there are remnants of the past I can still see.  Keep up the postings of what works for you, it's very encouraging!
