I am severely gluten intolerant - this intolerance is responsible for a number of my health problems, including acne (I breakout when I ingest it). It took me a few weeks to experience the positive effects of a gluten-free diet on my mood and energy levels. Took a few months for a gluten-free diet to heal my digestive system. Took about a year to see real improvements with skin.

You can see improvements anywhere from a week to a few months, but it can take years and years to fully heal from the damage of gluten.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

Yes. You have to do it for much longer than a month. I'd say try it for 4-5 months at least.

I cut out gluten from my diet and my skin did clear up a little. I also lost a little weight however I was experiencing some stomach issues with avoiding gluten because a lot of gluten free breads contain more sugar to make up for the lack of gluten. In other words to add some substance. I just wasn't getting enough fiber I think. So I didn't think it was very healthy for me so I only eat wheat once a meal now and my digestion is back to normal. I found that eating wheat would only really give me small pimples. For me dairy was the big culprit I was diagnosed with a sensitivity to it and it made me break out the most. So I avoid dairy completely and eat wheat in moderation. However if you have wheat sensitivity then it would be best for you to avoid it completely. Just make sure to get enough fiber in your diet if you go gluten free! A healthy digestion is definitely important and your skin will thank you for it!

Definitely.

Watch out for these gluten-free manufactured foods. As Beezie points out they contain a lot of sugar and other additives so if you're going gluten free but still eating these junk foods (yes, they're junk) and you're not seeing results this is the problem.

A diet rich in a variety of vegetables and fruits should give one enough fiber.

Like I said in my first post, I've tried Gluten Free a couple times before, but no longer than a month.

Is it worth it to try again for a few months? Either way I'm going to, but I just would like to not think it's all in vain.

Have you tried going completely dairy free? I cut out dairy 2 weeks ago and almost magically all cysts stopped appearing. Only tiny pustules pop up sometimes and that too because I have been baking last week. Im not sure if wheat is an issue for me. Dairy definitely is.


It's not that difficult. If I can do it, so can you.

Yeah going gluten free isn't going to do very much if you eat all the same foods but gluten free versions. You're still loading up on grains and junk. I don't eat any grains or bread at all, for the most part. Definitely not with any sort of regularity (I've been eating rice maybe once every 2 weeks or less). If you feel you need bread for fiber, you're missing out on a massive portion of your diet that is supposed to be nutrient dense greens and veggies.
