Hey WishClean! You look really hot even without makeup! I would date you for sure. Can you tell me more about that low histamine diet? Does it mean just certain carbs, or can high histamine foods be proteins and fats too? What carb sources can you eat? I get only really inflamed acne on the sides of my mouth and inner cheeks, those are my problem areas and I don't get cysts ever.
Aah, I just read about that histamine thing and it seems that I haven't even eaten anything histamine raising foods.. Damn, it seemed so promising! Three years ago I suddenly developed terrible birch and timothy allergy and my nose is always stuffy and runny when I go outside all year round. So depressing, what is wrong with me..
lol thanks for the compliment even though I post my worst photos on here, usually after working out and looking more horrible.
I wrote a list of low histamine foods somewhere...it should be on this log. Even if you don't have a histamine issue, a low histamine diet is anti-inflammatory. Basically consists of sweet potatoes, lots of vegetables, fiber and green juices. I have now added low carb/yeast-free pitas, tofu cheese, fiber bars, and some other things.
What are your symptoms?
Update: Started DIM around January 18/20th. I want to keep track of this and see if it will work for me along with inositol.
Unfortunately, vitex seems too strong for my sensitive stomach now so I gave up for now. Might try it again later since it helped me a lot the last 2 times I took it. I recommend it to anyone who gets rebound acne after coming off birth control.
Last month's breakout started on January 13/14th...I'm suspecting it was vitex or a new foundation with sulfites. I will be keeping track for this month to see if anything happens around mid-Feb, otherwise it means it was vitex or the shiseido foundation.
Still going strong with inositol....won't give that up for sure
inositol, DIM [had to stop for now, don't seem to need them anymore!], digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
