Keep in mind that everyone is different. Too many variables and not enough control. Some people cheat by "adding" into their regimen and come to report that following one plan without supplematation cured them completely.
What also is not know is the health of that person. Some people have underlying conditions, often unknown to them that directly, indirectly, or accidentatly get "fixed" which then leads to them claiming it solved their acne.
I do not discredit those for who it has worked. But like i said, too many variables and unknowns
I for one was never really helped by any "diet". This includes when i was running 10k daily. I was physically in the best shape I had ever been, eatting moderately better than I had in the past without pills. I still had problems guys. Still.
Then nursing school happened. I lost my muscle mass, dropped 27lbs in 4 months. And to this day continue to eat like @#$%. I'm not impressed at times with myself. But thats school for ya. However, my skin has not reflect my terrible regression of healthly eatting.
On a side note; I had a full physical workup a month ago because I particpated in a medical procedure to save a life. Its been well over a year since I have ran, worked out, or have ate decent regularly. Go figure.
Running like that is pro inflammatory and thus, harmful. And not good for acne.
I swear, every time people make these posts, they always include a long list of bad diet and lifestyle habits in their examples of 'healthy' Things they tried. Apple diets, cleanses, Starvation, extreme workouts...
Anyone trying these things is not managing their anxiety & stress. Or truly trying to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. And I can't even imagine what the OP was choosing to eat on his/her paleo diet that Mede him/her look like a 'meth head'. But it obviously wasn't a good diet. And so obviously wouldn't be good for acne.
I always love the vegan claims as if that means they ate the healthiest diet possible. It's very easy to eat an unhealthy vegan diet. look at all the processed vegan faux food crap sold at Whole Foods. Heres a tip, in the supermarket or health food store, Stay out of the aisles filled with boxes. Other than perhaps the tea aisle.

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