When I was 14, my aunt took me to see a naturopath for my acne. He put me on a diet where I couldn't eat dairy, wheat, or sugar because I was allergic to all three and I had to find alternatives to them (goat dairy, spelt, honey). Ok so fine. I stuck with it for about 2 1/2 years but it was becoming VERY expensive. Health food stores are majorly overpriced. Plus I was popping about 10 different kinds of vitamins a day and those were terribly expensive too. This wasn't really doing wonders for my skin either. I was still breaking out like crazy and my mom was bitching about how much money my food was costing. Now I'm sort of still on it but I recently got hired at a pizza place so I'm eating junk a couple times a week. I haven't noticed a huge change in my skin but I do still break out a lot. I'm worried that by going off of this diet a bit I'll break out more but I can't really tell if there's a difference. Do diets really affect your skin? I stay away from caffeine and potatoes as much as I can because I hear its bad for the skin and same with alcohol. I also never drink soda or anything and try to avoid sugar as much as I can. I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on allergy diets and if they really affect acne in any way. Naturopaths say yes, dermatologists say no. So what the hell?
