I think anything with sugar can make acne worse. There is a lot of sugar in orange juice or apple juice, even if it is good sugar. Enough of any kind of sugar can hurt acne for me anyways. Moderation is good, and you can only find out your own moderation through trial and error. Yeah there is sugar in soy and raisins, and I think it may aggrevate acne, but you can't know if it would hurt you until you try it for yourself.

If you are trying to avoid foods and things that aggravate acne, people say to stay away from processed foods or refined foods. Tofu and soy milk is processed. Raisins are too (sun dried is a lot better than just heat dried though), but I still eat them because that is the only thing I look forward to eating. You have to figure it out for yourself. I would look at the GI list, that is a good guide when you are starting to pick and choose foods and their sugar content. But stop with the raisins for like 5 days and see if anything improves, and then eat them again, and do this like 3 times. Eliminating all the things you like is incredibly depressing, and people who control acne through diet cannot have ANY of it. cry.gif Or do what I am doing, just eat the raisins and eliminate them if nothing improves, good luck!

Snorting prozac to get high is not wise.

Triple inverse and long exchange traded funds deviate to zero with volatility.

Conversations you have with friends are never funny to others. Keep them to yourself.

Retelling movie clips that are "funny" ruins them. You look like an ass.

Soy vanilla decaf venti lattes are 4.65 at Starbucks and 5 dollars at Barnes and Noble.

Soymilk used to break me out bad. I use almond milk or rice milk. One thing I don't understand though is this. Is the soymilk breaking YOU out? If not, then don't worry about it. Different things break different people out.

Exactly =)
These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):
* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)
* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002
* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)
* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)

Research:
* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).
* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.
