Hello guys I have suffered from Acne all my life. Was hoping to grow out of it but after lots of research and testing I took matters in my own hand. Below is what I do to stay clear:


  • No dairy or sugar. I sweeten things with honey, fructose, xylitol or maple syrup.

  • Eat lots of wholegrain, seeds & nuts, pulses, vegetables, lean protein

  • Drink green tea and plenty of water. I have a coffee in the morning to get me going.

  • Cleanse every night with a muslin cloth and water (any gentle cleanser would be fine, keep it simple) and follow up with pure chimp super one.

  • Exercise at least 3 times a week


Good luck and here’s to clear skin

how long did it take to see results? Ive cut out all dairy and refined sugar, and have so for a good few weeks.  things are a lot better, but did get a few new spots pop up yesterday for no obv reason.  Hadnt had anything new for 4 days before that, which is unusual!!!

Congratulations. But fructose is not a better option than refined white sugar which is half fructose. And regardless of the sweetener, the glycemic impact is still important.

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!

I love that you have exercise on your list.  It probably won't fix things by itself but I think 90% of us posting here don't do it enough (myself included).

Thanks for the tips krabb! You have a very healthy diet. It's true that we need to exercise at least three times in a week. Having a healthy diet can lead us to better life, body and skin. It reduces some skin problems. It is good for us ti drink plenty of waters and eat vegetables daily.

Good job! Except for the lean protein and grains, that pretty much sums up what I do overall.
