PEOPLE SAY DIET IS UNRELATED TO ACNE. ITS NOT FRIGGIN TRUE!!!!!!
-DAIRY can cause acne due to added hormones
-TOO MUCH CAFFEINATED DRINKS causes increased sebaceous gland activity, more sebum, more comedonal and pustule acne!
-Delayed food allergies are among the most common causes of acne. Foods like gluten, dairy, yeast, and eggs can be problems if you have a leaky gut.
list goes ON. seriously.
firstly i want to encourage everyone to please carefully evaluate their diet. im not saying eat fruits and veg 24/7 im saying eat WELL. also eat foods that are GOOD FOR THE LIVER AND KIDNEYS! i had an extremely bad incident were i nearly had liver failure. and i broke out like crazy after recovery because my liver wasn't in top condition. The liver performs many essential functions related to digestion, metabolism, immunity, and the storage of nutrients within the body. These functions make the liver a vital organ without which the tissues of the body would quickly die from lack of energy and nutrients. as soon as i started eating liver beneficial foods and ate well-spots were gone!
please take care of your bodies!
AND FOR HORMONAL ACNE:
licorice reduces testosterone levels. drank it one week before during an after my period (no more than that, excessive drinking of it leads to hypertension, high blood pressure). for people with severe acne i suggest 2 cups a day instead of one like me. i also only drank it for 5 days in a row, had a "day off" then would drink it for another 5 days. ive seen other people on here say similair things and IM SO GLAD I TRIED IT. for people with HORMONAL acne, this may help you!
VITAMIN D- some people get acne due to lack of sun exposure. i know that i got less breakout during the summer so started taking vitamin d. and guess what
omega-3 and 6-Omega-3s have been shown to control the production of leukotriene B4, a molecule that can increase sebum and cause inflammatory acne/ TAKE A SUPPLEMENT!
a lot of people take ZINC to help but while it inhibits DHT which causes acne, it also increase testosterone levels which can leads to overactive sebaceous glands. if when taking zinc your acne gets worse, SWITCH TO DRINKING LICORICE TEA. if you;re acne gets BETTER it means you have TOO LITTLE TESTOSTERONE/NOT ENOUGH ZINC TO COUNTERACT THE CORTISOL which is the hormone released from STRESS.
