Hi There, I am looking for others to share their expereinces about how long it took for changes in diet to affect your acne? I have been dairy free, sugar free, white rice/pasta/flour free for nearly two months, at the same time increasing my anti-oxidant foods like nuts, berries, veggies, fruits, quinoa, soy based foods and almold milk etc. and have not noticed any improvement to my skin. None. It is exactly the same as it has always been with new cysts arriving every few days. Is 2 months long enough to have noticed some change? Is this a sign that perhaps my acne is not food related at all? I suspect it is hormone related since it all started with my first pregnancy and is on going as I am weaning my second baby. It is not fun having to prepare a seperate meal or take food places, especially if there is no visible gain (I am sure it good for my over all health...but I didn't eat poorly before...just a daily serving or two of dairy and the odd homemade cookie or whatever, and not a many fruits and veggies).
I'd love to hear thoughts on how long to give this clear skin diet before allowing myself a steeped tea from Timmies with milk and sugar!
