I've read a million times that diet is NOT proven to affect acne, BUT if you do notice that your skin breaks out with certain types of food, then you should probably try to avoid them or minimize how much you eat/drink.

Best of luck:)

Water helps. Drop all drinks that have sugar in them such as coke. Don't eat chocolate, crisps, milk or dairy products such as yoghurt. If you want to eat chips and pizza then you can but not too much mind you. Once a week should do. Try to eat more fruit and veg and don't put butter/margarine on bread etc etc.

i don't think there's a DIRECT corralation to what you eat and acne. like oh, i ate a chocolate bar, now i broke out. i think that may only happen if you rub the chocolate all over your skin and not wash it off. but, in general, what you put in your mouth has an effect on your health and body. i know nothing has been proven, but, i know when i take the time to make a good healthy meal, not only do i feel better, i look better. my skin is brighter, my eyes are brighter. maybe i just feel better so that makes me see my acne less... could be psychological, i guess.


Oh oh now baby, tell me how have you been

We all have missed you, and the way you grin

The day is necessary, every now and then

For souls to move on, givin' life back again, and again

Fly on fly on, fly on my friend

Go on, live again, love again

Cut down on foods containing white sugar, or white flour.

Perhaps, for this question, you'll have better luck in the Diet & Holistic Forum


These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.
