A couple breakouts surfaced on my chin during the day today... One on right right side.. one on my left.. And I don't know it just looks 'inflamed'.. So heres what I did that was weird today..

Ate more lemon then usual
Ate cherry tomatoes

Ate more hummus then usual
Had about 9 pieces( little squares) of dark chocolate (85% only 5 grams sugar per 4 pieces) the past 2 days (4 yesterday and 3 the day before and 2 today)
Kinda stressed about school
Switched to taurine powder
Drank 3000 mg emergen C
And my period might be starting soon so that could be it too
Had more salt with spinach so could be the iodine overload.. which now that I think of it may be the culprit


Food:
2 servings salmon
spinach
3 servings zucchini and onion
1 square 85% dark chocolate
Almond butter
3 Avocado
Seltzer water
Broccoli and hummus


Supplements:
taurine powder
b-complex
3000-4000 mg emergen C

Acne:
blah :/
took pix and still looks better then last week.. but I have 3 'under the skin' ones.. one of the 3 is starting to become painfull. Duno why I have so many ups and downssssssss.. I was feeling great last week and didnt have a care or stress.. Then today I started to get stressed out so stress may be the main cause .. not sure though

having visitors soon so hopefully it goes down

are you the one who posted recently that you are going on an antibiotic and trying to kill candida at the same time?

chocolate is the biggest break out culprit for me, just fyi.

Don't you use sea salt? You can buy the kind that's not iodized and it shouldn't give you any trouble.

Yah as the days move on (past the last breakout) I'm starting to think that it may have been the chocolate.. However my mom is allergic to tomatoes so I may also be allergic and get minor acne from it but I'm not sure because I haven't been tested for tomatoes yet..

Chocolate is just so good.. even dark chocolate like 85% taste like heaven to me gasp.gif

But im off of it now sad.gif *sigh*

Yes I have sea salt and I was using a lot of it.. I guess once again I added in to many things in one day to know what really caused it...

Acne:
It's actually doing really well.. Nothing new on chin.. Can't even believe how clear it looks.. Still scaring but that takes a long time to go away. Not sure if it's the diet, taurine, acupuncture, or red and blue lights I have been using.. But I think all of them combined are helping. My forehead is now 100% and wonderful looking!

*Acupuncture is helping with my stress and helping me deal with school
*Diet is helping with health and not aggravating my messed up digestive system since all I eat is fish
*Taurine and b-complex seem to be helping but I would have to stop taking the supplements to really test it.. Which I might do when im 100% clear
*Red/infrared light is healing my skin and closing my pores
*Blue light is killing acne possibly.. Only use it for 2 minutes.


Mood:
Happy about skin but stressed about school

Got sun by the pool

Acne:
Nothing new.. Face is looking good.. Of course I still have a couple dieing down but no cysts or anything that is really bothering me or I think people are 'staring at' when I go out. I am actually happy with my skin not 100% but it's SOOOO much better then before.. And someone called me pretty today smile.gif For the first time in a while.

New update for later in the day.. I drank some coffee and had a bad reaction.. I have a new pimple or group surfacing on the right side.. They hurt.. I always mess up right when im clear!! I don't know why I can't learn!!!!!!

Mood:
I've been in a really great mood.. Just happy about life in general. When acne calms down= happiness. But I have to say it's not just about the acne.. It's about your thought process/exercise and what you eat. When I stopped thinking about my acne it seemed to go away more. Which was also the time that I stated acupuncture. I feel more balanced and excited about life in general. If you would of known me or I had a log going back a few months it would of been really depressing. My whole chin was inflamed and my forehead. I looked like a monster.. So right now me feeling normal about my skin is craziness..

Hey biology - glad to hear you're doing so well. I agree, not thinking about acne is one of the biggest things that helps to clear it. It helps you avoid picking at things you shouldn't and mood plays a big part in acne I've found. Even now that I'm clear, I'm still in the habit of only briefly looking in mirrors, because I used to be so obsessively checking my skin over.

On a side note, since the taurine may be working for you (and what you're describing with the drying out sounds pretty familiar) maybe we have some similarities in what we can tolerate. I've found that fatty foods like pizza, burgers etc don't cause breakouts, but anything with a significant sugar content does. What taurine does is linked to helping you manage sugar, so the fact that its effective at all possibly indicates something wrong with our baseline sugar processing.

About the bumps under the skin - I got some of those early on too, that stayed for a week or so but never broke through the skin. I'd never had them before, not sure if yours are the same, but I thought they might have been a transitional stage before all the formations stopped.

Lastly, if you're looking for something to add to your (already hefty ) regimen, I can recommend drinking watered down Apple Cider Vinegar. I've been trying it for the last few weeks (I stopped experimenting for ages and am starting again aiming on clearing my arms) and have found that it actually helped my face go from 95% clear to just about 100%. I was drinking it leading up to a formal event I had and it really paid off. Also seems to have reduced the slight general redness that I hadn't been able to shake. If you're interested, I've been diluting a small amount in a large glass of water, basically going by ear. If you mix it right it's kind of like apple juice with an acid tang to it. Up to you if you want to try it, just thought I'd give the heads up smile.gif

Good luck,
Pan

Thanks for the info! Yah throughout this whole thing I am finding that I am veryy sensitive to everything!! Even minor things like folders coffee will cause a minor breakout. That's so weird that you say that about the small bumps.. I had them everywhere on my left side and not on the right and wasn't sure what was causing them. And it's weird because every morning they aren't there and sometimes by the end of the day they are there. I just woke up so they aren't there right now and I think they are actually going away. I don't remember seeing them when I looked in the mirror last night. I will go get some organic apple cider vinegar soon. I actually had some but returned it because I tried it before and remember how weird it tasted. How much apple cider vinegar a day do you drink? And can you tolerate more glucose/fructose or CHO(carbohydrates) in your diet now? I have high faith that my acupuncturist is going to fix what ever is wrong with me and I will one day be able to tolerate some about of sugar again.

May as well put in this post..
So far since I started this diet I found out I am sensitive to
1) Organic carrots or any carrot
2) Dark chocolate
3) Coffee
4) Salt (possibly)
5) Tomatoes (possibly)

All 3 made me have a slight setback breakout.

Hey - I drink one glass of water/acv a day. It's a fairly big glass, but only a dash or two of ACV. Not sure exactly how much that measures. Funny, I had my suspicions about tomatoes at one stage. Never really managed to rule them in or out.

As for the sugars, I find i'm relatively tolerant now. I ate a medium sized chocolatey dessert thing a few nights back and it might have given me like one neck pimple (or that might have been the copious amounts of alcohol tongue.gif)
