Why would you put your time and effort into something everyone says is a crock and then some on and say it didn't work? I can tell you something else to do with diet that should have you seeing great improvement. Tell me just what you are eating and not the apple thing. That is, if you are still interested in trying to improve your face through food. Also, I am a firm believer in the "less is best" approach to skin care routines.

MinnymOuse is very correct in that lots of people think they eat healthier than all their acne-free friends, who may be blessed with not being acnegenic to begin with owing to the normalized sensitivity of their oil gland receptors to their androgens or possibly altogether lower androgen levels, but if you are acnegenic than you must comprehensively evaluate all possible dietary triggers. Even things that you think are healthy often are not, especially for acne, and may furthermore function as inflammatory triggers owing to individual, undiagnosed food intolerances and/or allergens, which are surprisingly far, far more common than you think, especially with A-group blood types.

and also, initially (the first two weeks) my skin got worse which seems to be common for the reasons stated above. believe me, i know it's frustrating. i refused to believe there was ANY diet connection whatsover for nearly 20 years. i listened and trusted my dumbass dermatologist. i'm 34 and felt serious diet alteration would be my very last resort before considering accutane. to my surprise - it will be my last resort, because at last i have found something that i can control it with - that has zero negative side effects.
