Hello everybody! So today I started my water fast. Before that I was on a strict paleo diet for 11 days and it didn't help my acne. Anyways I'll keep being on a paleo diet after this fast... If you have some experience with fasting please feel free to share it here!
Day 1 - started the fast about 16 hours ago. Still have inflammation and those bumps are still itchy and painful. Will see what happens next and keep you posted!
Just my opinion and because I've been dealing with acne for a long time and all these different experients to clear skin. Also because I don't like people abusing their health/body. I don't see how fasting is going to help you. Your body needs the right nutrients to function properly, if you're only consuming water, you're starving your body of basic needs. Eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and exercise. Unless you have actual food allergies something like this is not going to help. The rest is up to your skin care regimen. If you want to get technical, I could actually explain more reason as to why a water fast could cause even more acne because it's too much stress on the body, especially the heart, which will in turn raise cortisol levels in the body which can result in even more breakouts.
