    Have slowly been changing my diet for a little over a year after I continue to learn about foods and how it it caused from the inside. So this is where I am currently at with my diet. Here is my story 23 year old male, have mild acne (all cystic), got worse after high school. I believe it is hormonal/hereditary because my mother and siblings all have it as well. Like many have tried just about everything over the counter. I went to to a derm a couple years ago and he gave me tetracycline (which i shouldn't have taken) and a sulfur wash which didn't do much. I hated the idea of using harsh chemicals in or outside of the body so I took the holistic approach. I have had laser treatments to remove red pigmentation marks and am currently getting TCA peels every 4 weeks. I also have at home glycolic and kojic peels I do. I also have a blue/red trophy skin light therapy I use mostly everyday. I wash with a salicylic and tea tree oil wash and different all natural types of soap, while using the Indian healing clay mask (100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay) mixed with raw honey and organic apple cider vinegar (keep it on for 1 hour). I started using a dermaroller to try to clear up some scars. It is to the point where I don't want to eat anything that I don't prepare myself.
    I am very athletic and workout 4-5 days a week. Meditate daily (very spiritual person). Did a 14 day liver detox. Nothing I do stops my acne completely. Sure I breakout less and they may go away faster but the left over red spots WILL NOT leave. My face is constantly oily within 2 hours of not washing it. (oil has gotten worse within the last year) I think I have a problem with my glands (I sweat very easily at the gym or when i get nervous). I get a new red bumps somewhere every few days so I am never completely clear and the red leftover pigmentation spots are the worst. I also get some body acne as well . Overall I think the diet change has helped, relatively speaking. Appreciate any help/advice!
