mild-moderate facial acne (no cysts just general redness a few whiteheads coming and going)
I am a 17 year old male, so I can attribute some of this acne to hormoes (not adult acne... yet and hopefully will never have that!). I would like to treat the dietary causes once and for all!
I've been eating "healthy" (no processed foods, generally low added sugar, no trans fats) for the past year or so, but didn't concern myself with good fruit/vegetable intake and avoiding alergens. I am going to do my best to educate myself on the diet/living habits/supplements to be as healthy as possible!
I want to record all my habits which could relate to acne getting better or worse. I will include pictures soon.
I would appreciate if everyone would tell me what I am doing wrong, and what I could do better!
The factors will include (may add more later):
Fell asleep around 2 A.M. (I know.. bad, but it was friday night!), woke up at 8:30.
Diet: First off, I am concerned about weight. Not in the way most people are. I want to gain muscle! Usually I eat lots of grains/seeds/nuts but I am cutting those out for a week to see if that helps with acne. I was trying to go raw vegan for the following week, but the chicken my mom made smelled too good. I figure chicken wouldnt be soo bad.
