Sugary things and excess carbs, especially refined carbs. Processed foods. My skin used to be very oily on a "healthy" diet (lots of whole grains, etc), but since eating low carb, whole foods, my skin is very normal, even if I don't wash it in the morning.

 

Dairy can be a trigger. Cultured or aged dairy isn't as bad. High quality cheese seems to be fine, in moderation.

 

Soy.

 

Too much fiber/anything that irritates my digestive system. This one is huge. Happy tummy, happy skin. If it makes you bloated or causes you pain, don't eat it. Raw brassicas (broccoli, kale, cabbage, etc.) kill my stomach (yes, even though they're "healthy")

 

Roasted nuts. Only raw is fine for me.

 

Vegetable oils. If I cheat a little on pretty much any of the above, I usually won't break out anymore, but vegetable oils will get me every time. Soybean, canola, corn, etc.

 

 

Most meat, veggies and fruit are safe for me.

Here's the problem I see:

People want to heal their acne through diet and lifestyle. Great. But then they get obsessed only with their skin and not how they FEEL. Physically. Emotionally. What is the quality of your life? It's not directly connected to your flesh, I can tell you that. Then obsess over their food. They hear "diet" and think low-fat, juicing, fasting, cleansing, starving. You're young. Do you really think you have liver failure? Do you really think you need more fiber?

Paleo changed my life. It's the only lifestyle that ever helped me-not just with my skin, but with my life. My happiness. My fitness. It says, "Eat good quality meats. Eat lots of veggies. Eat fruit too. Some nuts. Then go outside. Walk around. See the world. Play with friends. Lift heavy things. Get some sun. Then go sleep, wake up and do it again." What that means to me is to live an enjoyable, happy, dynamic life where I can be the best me for the people I love, not anxious, not angry, not depressed.

Be gentle to your skin, your heart, your tummy, and your life.

Get out there and live.

And also eat bacon.

Thing is for me, I can eat junk food for a week and not break out.,.. then bam break outs.

 

So I have to still test the cheese for longer

Some things only bother me in large quantities, like yogurt or dairy or oats.

Sugar usually breaks me out, unless it's natural sweetners like milk.

I think xylitol breaks me out too, which is weird. tomatoes also.

 

What doesn't break me out:

- sweet potatoes

- regular potatoes

- potato chips

- zucchini

-cucumbers

-carrots

- garlic

- parsley

- some cereal

- vodka

-rice burgers

- organic salmon burgers (I think,not 100% sure)

I'm sure there's others, but these are my staples


Supplements: inositol, DIM, 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.

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... (although I have been slacking lately)

** Find the cause, find the cure **

1)  Most sugar.  Organic cane sugar is okay.  Agave bothers me also...

2)  Oranges

3)  Dairy

4)  Using vegetable oil to cook.  I use grapseed oil or coconut oil now.

5)  Chocolate (Even raw dark chocolate)

6) Junk food

No foods break me out. What breaks me out is if I don't eat enough for 3+ days, my body goes into panic mode and I guess the stress causes acne.

i know for certain that overly processed foods mess up my skin. i recall going wild and eating pizza, chocolate box made cookies (with hershey kisses in them), and cuban pastries some time last year...

 

my skin was like, "wth?"

 

so, yeah, i just stick to foods that i've made or that aren't overly processed to keep my skin happy.

Things that seemed to contribute to breakouts:

 

1. Dairy, especially skim milk and 2%. Whole milk seems to settle with my skin better. Commercial "common" mass-produced cheeses such as cheddar, provolone, swiss are the devil. This is just your typical commercial brand at the grocery store. I never really tried going all organic pasture-fed on all my dairy products so I can't common that. 

2. MSG. It also consistently gives me a raging headache.

3. Soy milk. Only tried one or two brands and they definitely weren't organic. 

4. Caffeine.

5. Chocolate. 

6. Peanut butter.

7. B vitamin supplements (except B5, which actually helped)

8. Sugar, high carbs

9. Eating too much in one sitting

10. Eating only 3 times a day

11. Canned tuna

12. Most brands of mayonnaise and miracle whip (based on soybean oil)

13. Soybean oil

14. Whatever the hell they put in sweet and sour sauce

 

Things that don't seem to make me breakout:

 

1. Although most dairy is on the other list...I don't have reactions to specialty cheese such as Gouda and Feta. Full-fat authentic organic Greek yogurt seems to be fine as well. 

2. Eating smaller meals throughout the day

3. Meat, even though I'm not currently buying pasture-fed organic meat or anything like that

4. Mayonnaise without soybean oil, I use an olive-oil based one now

5. Never pinpointed a reaction on any fruits or veggies

6. Really most food not on the first list I can tolerate

 

Hi GreenGables... How did you go about identifying which foods caused breakouts? I am on a food elimination diet right now - not eating any dairy, gluten, soy, nuts, nightshades, etc so I would be interested to hear what you did.
