Eat real, whole nutrient dense foods. Avoid added sugar, especially in drinks. Avoid high glycemic impacting meals.

Figure out any food intolerances you might have and avoid them. And even if you aren't intolerant, Gluten isn't good for anyone and there are numerous ways dairy affects acne (and other hormone issues & cancer cell growth) and so neither should be big parts of your diet.

Sleep well at night in the dark. Get up in the morning and get out in the daylight as much as possible. Be active every day. And manage stress.

And don't screw up your skin's attempts to function with soaps and topicals.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Be careful. Anything that cleanses your colon and gut can cause major detox breakouts, plus other symptoms like nausea and lack of energy. Start slow, you don't want to overload your body, and like alternativista said, the first step is cleaning up your diet.


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)

It depends on what your body reacts to...many people cut out dairy for a while, so you could try that and see if your skin improves. Organic fish and meat are fine for most people. You can add a few nuts if you're hungry, but if you are allergic then obviously avoid them. Vegetable juices and sweet potatoes are good too. There is a recipe thread on the holistic forum that you can read for some ideas.

Don't eat only fruit & vegetables. Eat mostly fruit and vegetables.

You need some grains in there too. Rather than thinking 'fruit and vegetables' - think plant-based with small amounts of lean meat. Don't eat too much fruit either, a small portion a day is enough. We sometimes think being healthy is eating insane amounts of fruit, but really that can just be as bad for your weight and acne as refined sugars are. Go to town on vegetables though!
