So I have finally got my acne controlled to an acceptable level. After a year of experiencing all sorts of things, I have identified 2 things that causes me to breakout in acne. The first culprit is junk food! (any oily food) This stuff was the cause of my severe cystic acne. But after exercising extreme discipline eating properly for a solid 6 months and cutting all junk food and anything oily from my diet I'm relieved to say that I don't break out in any cystic acne anymore. The second thing that breaks me out is heat. Now regardless if I eat oily food or not, I will break out if the weather is really humid. However, the type of acne will depend if I had any oily food during that period. If I did, then cystic size acne will consume my face! if I stay on my healthy diet, I will just get small pimples which usually clear up after a week or two.
So after staying clear for the past 2months - I decided to have a cheat day and joined my family for some pizza the other night. 4 days later, I have a massive pimple that's right between my eyes! Now I know I would have reasonably clear skin for the rest of my life if I stayed off the junk food but everyone has cravings once in awhile and it would be nice to have a cheat day once every 1-2months.
My question is, is there any vitamin pills that can help prevent acne in my situation? This may sound silly, but from what I understand from my body, my body is slow at processing the oil in my food and after 4-7 days that's when I break out? Are there any vitamins or pills that can help metabolize or keep a balance in my body for me to not break out?
any help will be appreciated!
