so many things that it could be, but salt and sun are usually great, in moderation

I've always wondered about the fluoride in the water, if you live in a country that fluoridates it....for our skin we'd likely be much better with water the way nature intended it to be

In Topic: Do Fruits Cause Acne? Help With My Diet Please!

17 May 2015 - 09:17 AM

we are all different- for me dairy (cow's milk) and gluten are triggers--  they may not be for you

but it just makes good sense not to overdose on fruits-  focus on green veggies instead

and quinoa is not an issue for me, but it may be for you

everything in moderation, and rotate what you eat...lean poultry, fish, are you vegan?  if not you could eat those...sweet potatoes in moderation are great

In Topic: What Kind Of Food Can I Eat When I Am In A Rush At Work?

why not bring a piece of fruit, or buy it there!  like a banana, that's filling-  also a handful of RAW nuts, like almonds, and you can toss in some dried fruit and seeds like pumpkin seeds or sunflower

good for you for ditching the canned foods, and bread is an issue for some, but not all....if you can eat bread, stick to whole grains, nothing white EVER-  acne or not.

In Topic: 6 Mnth Of Tane And No Good..whats Next For Hormonal Acne?

Accutane didn't work for me either, not 6 months later, not 1 year later....just made things worse, and I was on for closer to 8 months...it works miracles for most, but it does NOT work for some.

Why not look into photodynamic therapy, if your acne isn't really bad it just may do the trick, not covered by insurance, but work a try-  the doctor puts ALA on your face (an acid) then activates with red/blue lights.

What I ended up doing, for cystic acne mind you-  was getting at my diet-  I kept a journal and ended up completely eliminating dairy and gluten (yes it's hard, but cysts are harder)...and I have a crazy topical routine....that I adjust as I get older.

Good luck to you, again it SUCKS to not have the miracle drug work for you....as the doctors truly don't know what to do for you when this doesn't work...they've all been trained in medical school to give this, then the miracle occurs, check done.....so when it doesn't work, they don't have anything left.   To THIS DAY my doctor says diet has no impact on acne....yeah sure, I cheat and eat a piece of bread and I get a cyst.....okay, sure.
