Looking forward to reading the responses!

Anyway, my skin cleared completely in less than 2 months from the day I drank my last soda and began improving my diet to avoid high gylcemic load meals/drinks/snacks and incorporating more nutrient dense foods. But years earlier I had identified a food intolerance that caused the worst of my acne - severe cystic acne.

Had severe acne until I was 18 or so (on and off until I was 21)...restored my acid mantle which got rid of my acne and have been clear since
DHT and other sex hormones also cause issues for me
the first poster is wrong, its not doubtful that one thing is causing your acne...if one thing gets out of control it can effect other things, once corrected everything should stabilize, which is found in my situation.

Not sure how much longer I could have survived if I didn't find the source problem.
I just had a delicious tomato soup and 2 sandwiches today during a vacation, I'll see what happens tomorrow. Probably nothing since, I kept the GI impact low.

I noticed a slight reduction from taking dairy out of my diet, but dairy plays into the androgen activity as well anyway.

When I stop masturbation and drinking milk (or products based on milk) my acne becomes better (not clear, but absolutely better).

Over many years with incremental improvements. Firstly avoided gluten which showed some improvements and then when I began avoiding sugar, essentially following a low GI diet, this has helped keep me clear. Definitely no lotions or potions have been effective, though some plant based-products have helped calm and soothe my skin, and mercifully I never tried Roaccutane - I just knew this wouldn't work for me.

It would be interesting to see a graph of what cleared everyone from this thread and the Success Thread. I would imagine certain things would be far more prevalent than others. For anyone still searching, they may want to try the most common ones first.
And did everyone who found diet changes cleared them post to the success thread? It's there to help people.
