Some of you have noticed that this website hasn’t had any new acne posts or articles for the past several months. So what’s going on?
Well, I’m leaving for a trip in September 2014 and I’ve been trying to stay away from technology and being a workaholic for the last … well … a while.
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO, RAY?
That means, no TV, no internet, no music, and even no books. And if you know me, you know I love reading. Plus, this also means going vegetarian.
I know I teach a lot about eating clean and healthy on this website, but even for me, not eating meat is a tall order.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
I’ve hit a point in my life where I’m looking for something. Now, I’ll talk more about what this is when I get back, but this is definitely something that I need to do … for me.
Sorry guys, you’re going to have to wait a little. But I promise you things will be EVEN BETTER when I get back.…
If you’ve ever wondered whether or not potato chips or junk food cause acne, here’s the answer from Ray.
That’s right, this videos for you guys, if you love any of these chips below:
- Kettle Brand
- Cape Cod
- Golden Flake
Watch the video below where I talk about whether or not potato chips cause acne and what to eat instead.
THE SOLUTION TO YOUR ACNE
The solution to curing your acne is to not focus on improving your health in the commonly accepted way. Now, what I’m NOT saying is to not work out, not eat healthy, and not wash your skin. That is NOT what I’m saying. However, what I am saying is that what we believe now to be “taking care” of our bodies needs to be tweaked a little bit, especially if you have acne. And that “tweak” that you’re looking for is exactly what How To Clear Your Acne is about.
What every acne sufferer must learn, especially the ones that are really fit and health conscious yet still can’t figure out why they still have acne, is that there is a DIFFERENT KIND OF TAKING CARE OF YOUR BODY ROUTINE for us.…
It’s hot and you want to get your tan on.
Maybe it’s because you’re trying to cover acne scars and left over red blemishes from pimples.
Or maybe it’s because you were like me (years ago before I figured out how to cure my acne) and for some damn reason, every time you’re about to go to a party or meet some cute girl, you get a pimple and you’re trying to figure whatever way possible to make this pimple less visible.
Either way, here’s a video on what I learned over the years of experimenting with acne and tanning in a way that you can clear your acne naturally. Tips #1 and #2 you might have heard of, but I BET you haven’t heard of tip #3
THE SOLUTION TO YOUR ACNE
I, and thousands of other people, have spent years of our lives suffering from acne. And I mean REALLY SUFFERING from having acne. And it’s just a handful of us that finally found the secret to be able to free ourselves from those dark days when we hated the reflections of ourselves in the mirror.…
I was 16 years old and depressed. I had these blackout curtains and most of the time would locked myself in my room with all my lights off but one desk lamp … just enough to see my outline.
It seemed so long ago, I’m going to be 30 years old at the end of this year, but I still remember it so vividly.
It was hopeless.
I was lonely.
I felt undesirable, frustrated, unwanted … ugly.
UGLY. Really ugly.
I would use the restroom and leave the lights off. It was better than reminding myself of the hideous acne pustules and red blemishes I had covering my forehead, jawline, nose … hell, everywhere.
I hated acne.
FUCK ACNE. I was so angry.
I remember this one night (among many nights) when I was standing in the dark, in front of the bathroom mirror, trying to imagine myself with clear skin with the little moonlight that shined through the window …
I remember realizing … I can’t even get angry because I feared breaking out with more pimples.
I asked myself:
“What was my anger going to do?…
So I found this iPhone app the other day called “Facetune.” The fun thing about this app is that you can clear your skin, whiten your teeth, and do some simple touch ups.
You might like this app because … of course, you can see what you look like if you didn’t have acne and you had clear skin.
I think it’s great motivation to see how handsome (if you’re a guy) or beautiful (if you’re a girl) you will look once you clear your skin!
I tried it on a high school graduation picture that I had to see what I could’ve looked like when I had acne. And this picture wasn’t even when my acne was the worst! Plus, it’s a high school graduation photo, so … the photographers definitely touched things up a little bit before they sent it back (I could tell, my acne was worse than this senior year).
BEFORE & AFTER
Pretty cool huh?
Man, I would’ve been so much happier if I had skin like that during high school!
Look at that AFTER picture!…
I think one of the worst things about having acne is that people with clear skin just don’t understand.
And sometimes I wish I had was “fat” instead, because at least then people could relate a little. However, I don’t think most people understand what it’s like to have tried everything yet still have a face covered in pimples.
Here are 3 scenarios you’ve probably encountered if you had acne:
HOW YOUR FRIENDS DON’T GET IT
SCENARIO #1: NEW PIMPLE
What Happens: When you tell your friend about this crazy huge new pimple that’s bothering you and your friend says, “Where? I can’t tell.”
What We See: What I heard here was that I had so many pimples, one more didn’t really make a difference.
SCENARIO #2: YOU NEED SOME REASSURANCE
What Happens: You ask your close friend, “Hey, how bad is this pimple? I don’t know if I want to go out tonight.” Your friend say, “It’s not that bad, I can’t even tell.”
What We See: Now I know my friend was just trying to be helpful, but sometimes I think I just needed the truth.…
If you love potato chips, junk food, or just any sort of crunchy chip like snack and was wondering if it caused acne, breakouts, or pimples … here’s the answer.
Oh, and I hope you like my bit of humor here. Written, recorded, and edited by yours truly, Ray J. Wang. Enjoy!
Okay Ray … define “chips?”
Pop chips, Frito lay, Kettle chips, Pringles, Ruffles, Lays, Popped Chips, Thin & Crispy, Cheetos, Doritos, Sunchips, Tostitos, Funyuns, Ripples. And I probably missed a lot more. These are all chips folks and they are covered under the category of potato chips thereby related to your skin and acne!
About: If you have a savory tooth or like potato chips, I break down why and how chips can affect your acne. It’s something that most people don’t know. This is especially informative if you are an acne sufferer and love your chips and junk food. I also show you some of my favorite chips in the video! But really, who cares about that (unless you have some great recommendations ;).…
There are 2 things almost no acne sufferers know about why their acne happens. And if you are already familiar with this topic, I’m sure this will help you refresh your memory.
ACNE SECRET#1: What you eat CAN cure acne.
Many, otherwise experienced skin care specialists, avoid them because they seem too complicated at first glance. The real problem is that skin care diets are rarely explained properly.
Most dermatologists and the online skin care advice always talk about things like “excess sebum” and “black and white comedones.”
But if you stick with the Acne Free Diet that I teach you, you’ll discover that what you eat can clear your acne, stop breakouts, and get rid of acne scars in a natural and healthy way â€”nothing more, and nothing less.
As someone whose used antibiotics for years and thought that my acne would never get better, I’m telling you (along with hundreds of others that I’ve helped), it’s very possible to clear acne naturally through the right diet.
Let me give you some more pointers so you can get started right away.…
If you’ve ever wondered how bad your acne is (without looking in the mirror), here’s another way to test things out.
It’s a real easy test and it goes like this:…
On one hand, I want to have clear skin.
On the other hand, I want to exercise and be buff (or lose weight).
But what’s the point of exercising to look good if you’re breaking out with acne because of it?
Many of my readers end up asking me the confusing question: Does exercise cause acne?
Or, here are some other forms that you might be thinking of:
Does working out cause acne?
Will lifting weights cause me to break out?
Or how bad is running for my complexion?
I present to you, 8 cases:
- CASE #1: ACNE + “RIGHT” DIET + EXERCISE
- CASE #2: ACNE + “WRONG” DIET + EXERCISE
- CASE #3: NO ACNE + “RIGHT” DIET + EXERCISE
- CASE #4: NO ACNE + “WRONG” DIET + EXERCISE
- CASE #5: ACNE + “RIGHT” DIET + NO EXERCISE
- CASE #6: ACNE + “WRONG” DIET + NO EXERCISE
- CASE #7: NO ACNE + “RIGHT” DIET + NO EXERCISE
- CASE #8: NO ACNE + “WRONG” DIET + NO EXERCISE
I get these question all the time, so I’ve decided to write a short little article about it.…
