    I have problem with very bad occasional break out and have been trying so many different products, including products for sensitive skin. Currently I am using fresh rose face cleanser and youth preserve face cream. But it didnt help with the acne blemish and acne breakout. So I want to consult with you to get your recommendation on the product that I should use.

    Thank you.

    I’ve been getting some really bad breakouts all around my chin and jawline area. I’m not entirely sure what it is. If you can give me any advice, that would be fantastic!

    Kind regards,

    I’ve been having discolouration, break-out [never had it before] and prickly heat rashes and flaky dry skin from above my upper lips right to my chin area.

    I’ve tried Vichy, La Roche, Mary Kay, Elizabeth Grant, Eminence but somehow nothing seems to be working.

    I’ve always had glowing and pimple free skin but since arriving in Canada it’s been getting quite bad this winter.

    Right now, I’ve continued to apply Glaxo base moisturizer and cetaphil as my cleanser. My skin is no more glowing….what should I do?

    Please advise.

    Hi, I’m suffering a lot alately with my skin but only having breakouts from the bottom half of my face. However to be honest I do eat a lot of sweet things and have done for years but never has it been this bad. I’ve only realised it become server when I noticed my implant had become out of balance with my hormones and I was wondering as well as the fatty foods is this also a key problem for my skin? I’m on a detox at the moment and I noticed you said banana don’t really help so I’m just wondering, what are the best fruit and veg?

    Kind regards

      I, like many others suffer from jawline acne which spreads to around my mouth and cheek bones.

      I am mostly raw vegan, i excersise vigorously daily (afternoon), drink at least 3L of water a day and wash my face reguraly.

      according to me, i am doing everything right to have good complexion but never have.

      I have a mirena IUD in which prevents me from getting my period so i cannot relate my skin behaviour to menstrual cycle.

      I eat a lot of banana and soy. Is this the only thing giving me bad skin??

      your help would be great

  6. Annet


    My name is Annet and long story short I have been suffering from severe acne for 5 years. My acne is located mainly around my mouth and jawline, but also my chest and back (which has been less after taking the birth pill, but which I have discontinued 7 months ago). I have severe problems with my periods, after discontinuation, I have had no period. My acne and scars are so bad, that sometimes I just don’t want to look in the mirror anymore. I have to apply foundation daily to cover the skin-discoloration, the scars, the redness and inflammation. I have tried a raw food vegan diet in order to reduce it but it only made it worse. I have tried the starch solution and this also did not reduce the acne. Now I am not on a certain lifestyle diet, but I am vegan. It is really frustrating that being on such diets, that are commonly seen as healthy, don’t help my skin. Therefore I think that my acne problem is something more advanced and needs other sort treatment. I have been reading about Ayurveda and really believe in the power of healing with Ayurveda. Please help me with finding a balance so that I can be happy and the person I was before I had this acne.

    Thank you in advance!

    Best regards,

    I have persistent breakouts on chin and on sides of lips for Several days before and after my period. It is very inflamed and painful, I often treat it by breaking the skin with a warm towel then applying ACV, however within the night or next few hours they are full of puss again. I exercise regularly, eat clean, and maintain a cleansing pattern, but nothing seems to break it. On top of that my eczema has exacerbated over the past few months to a level that is sometimes overwhelming. I’m posting this late because I was awakened by an uncomfortable stinging sensation on chin only to reveal that the pimples had surfaced again. I’ve been to several doctors including holistic, however the protocols range from birth control to impractical diets. I’ve eliminated many items such as dairy, gluten, and fermented foods. I understand that whatever reveals itself externally is a Window to what’s going on internally, that’s the issue though no one has really exposed anything I didn’t already know. Maybe you can give me insight to the cause of this hormonal fluctuation at 25 yrs of age?

    • kristen

      Vanessa, thank you for your post. I have a few insights – first, I think that you are not extracting your blemishes properly or fully, which is why the white heads reappear. I recommend you only have an esthetician do it because you need to know when they are ready as well as be able to extract them thoroughly without marking the skin. Second, it sounds like you have a lot of internal inflammation as you have both acne and eczema – the eczema is probably not a hormonal issue as the acne may be. There are so many reasons you ca have hormonal imbalance: estrogen dominance, PCOS, thyroid problems… Has your doctor done a hormonal panel? Also, the root cause according to eastern medicine remains to be the inflammation.

    Hi Kristen,

    Do you have any experience with Perioral Dermatitis? If so, any suggestions would be appreciated more than you know! It’s a stubborn and frustrating condition, and causes constant discomfort (painful, dry, itchy).

    • kristen

      I do! This is an extensive thing to chat about – so perhaps you should email me! You can do so through the site 🙂

    Hello, I keep getting cystic acne on the right side of my jaw line. It doesn’t seem to be connected to my diet (I did the Whole30 challenge for a month and nothing changed). I sleep on the left side, not the right. Is there a chance this is connected directly to one of my ovaries?
