My only advice would be to make sure you get enough calories, better too much than too little. I've noticed that on a very restricted diet, you can easily eat too little without noticing (I became underweight after cutting out dairy, and some of my friends even thought I had an eating disorder), which can then lead to nutritional deficiencies and affect skin healing and scarring. You could try listing how much you eat using programs like Cronometer and make sure you get enough calories and nutrients.
Hey austra, Its funny you mention this because I used to use cronometer like crazy. I typically eat anywhere from 1800 to 3k calories a day.
I honestly don't think it has anything to do with caloric intake. If you feel satisfied, then technically you shouldnt need to eat more. Notice how when you eat REAL food, its hard to eat a lot of it... but most processsed foods you can GORGE.
Did you start to scar when you were eating little?
By the way do you still consume dairy?
Another thing thats perplexing to me is how a lot of my friends consume a lot of fast food (which has very little nutrient value) yet when they get acne, even though they squeeze it or pop it it does not scar.
Not sure what the problem may be...
I mean if you look at a typical meal that a person my age (23) consumes... its something like what you can get from rubios or chipotle... a burrito with rice, avocado, beans, chicken, salsa, sour cream, some lettuce... and scientifically all that grains should be preventing the absorption of the nutrients you get from that meal...
