'hot' and 'warm' food will cause heat in your body, and 'cool' and 'cold' food cools your body down.

It's all in your head. Also, people don't have the capability to "feel" increased testosterone levels...

and see if there is some improvement....just a bit of friendly common sense...
P.S....I love spicy food and it does not effect me...Now, alcohol is a whole different story...

but why cant you just keep an open mind about what everything that people have to say? when you try to convince others that its all in their heads, readers in this msg board may believe you and stop caring about diet (it does affect acne in most people, perhaps not in your case, but keep an open mind, ya? everyones different) and stuffs.
as for spicy food, im 100% sure it affects the skin, all my friends had the same experience too. as for benkweller's theory that its all in our head, well, a few years ago when i ate an extremely spicy indian dish, i broke out real bad, and i did not even had a slightest clue at that time that spicy food will cause breakouts. now, how do u explain that? BK? Judging from your previous postings, im sure you are gonna say coincidental right? but it does not just happen to me, it happens to most ppl around me.
After i had spicy food each time, i always feel the extremely hot sensation in my head which cause a huge irritation which is 100% not in my mind. SO SPICY FOOD DOES WORSEN MY SKIN.
I repeat, BENKWELLER, please keep an open mind. what affects others might not necessarily affect you.

As soon as you bring 999 people who break out for "common reasons" (What the fuck?) I'll think you're not a douche.

Well with rockhard evidence like that, how can I contend differently? Let's see... are you saying that EVERY single time you eat spicy food, you break out? Define spicy. Define break out.

in your previous posts in another thread, you said that drinking lots of water cleared you up. i have actually tried that methods for weeks where i drank about 3-4 litres each day, but unfortunately it did not work for me. but thats ok, do i have the right to go on saying that the water actually cured you because of "placebo" effect or its all in your mind? isnt that what you always say to people who have found a "miracle cure"? im sure you yourself are very aware that the water method actually cleared you up right, you know its defnitely not in your mind right? similarly, i myself understand that spicy food breaks me out and it defnitely did not happen because my mind says it will.
i believe there are many different methods available to improve acne, and when YOU, says "this method does not work, its all in the mind" to most methods or preventions available, you are actually convincing many readers to stay away from exploring all the possible methods that may actually improve their acnes.
