Hey everyone, the diet that I am currently on (paleo diet, which consists of grass fed beef, grass fed beef sausage, beef tallow, avocado, macadamia nuts, ghee, greens such as kale, romaine lettuce, spinach, sometimes hard cheeses or goat cheese, sardines at times) seems to keep my face acne pretty clear (although I do get breakouts few times a year).
The body acne however is not going away. I would say this diet has improved my body acne by 40-50%. I still suffer breakouts quite often and it is frustrating nonetheless.
I am beginning to think that maybe only 50% of my body acne is diet related, while the other 50% could be related to something else?
I have low stress (Used to be stressed a lot on a daily basis, but I have sorted that out), sleep 7-9 hours a day.
I take vitamin d supplements, but maybe it is more ideal to go out on the sun instead (so not sure if the lack in sun exposure is preventing my acne from clearing).
I also take zinc supplements 30mg every other day.
I do not wash with any cleansers/soap... but I do use head and shoulders on my scalp about 3 times a week (I make sure about 90% of the time that the head and shoulders does not get on my body at all).
Could it be the detergent I am using?
Its incredibly frustrating.
