So im 17 years old and have had acne for 3 years now. My acne started off being the occasional pimple than it flared up at 14 and become moderate to severe acne. I use to just use a cleanser every morning and night and thought that if you used a cleanser than your acne would dissapear like a magic product, but than I came to realise having acne is extremally complicated and you need to figure out what's right for you. So I started the phase where you constantly change products until you find something that works and I have tried everything but it wasent until I found this site to realise that it wasent what I was using, it was how. Before I used all my products on my face constantly and aggressively out of frustration. I was convinced that if I washed my face 3-4 times a day my face would be clear in no time. But than I figured out that washing your face a bunch and scrubbing does more harm than good. Anyway now my acne has gotten better as I have started to use a regimen which consists of cetaphil cleanser, witch hazel toner, benzyl peroxide 2.5%, and a spf 30 collagen cream. These products work out for me but they only do so much, I get to a point where my acne is clearing up but there is still redness. So I looked at my diet and I realised that I have always had a low tolerance for Dairy and when I was a kid and even now when ever I have dairy I get ex ma around my lips under my legs and also the underside of my arms. And before I thought that dairy only gave me ex ma and never linked it to my acne, but now I think it does link to my acne as redness is the problem in my skin. so I have quit dairy foods and instantly my skin started to clear up but im confused about eggs. Can I eat eggs? they have hormones in them and I have hormonal acne so im not too sure if I can eat them or not, and when I say eat them I mean I eat them raw and cooked and when they are raw the egg white has bacteria in it so im not sure if that's the cause or if its the hormones. Anyway some one help me and also can someone tell me if eating tuna and salmon is good or bad for my acne I get pimples from fish oil pills but I figured that's because its very potent.
