Is gluten free the answer?

So I haven't updated in a while... I've been sticking to a vegetarian diet and drinking lots of veggie juices. Over the past 10 days, I haven't had any gluten. The entire left side of my face... has no pimples. None. If you look at my pictures... I usually have a lot. I have maybe 9 on the right side of my face (not really counting so it doesn't bother me). This is the MOST drastic change I've seen since I've been doing holistic things since November. I'm wondering if

Crazy breakout

My face has exploded. I woke up yesterday with 5 new cysts and some white heads on my forehead. Is it because I haven't been super strict with the supplements?

I made a table listing what to take in the morning, what to take in the afternoon, and what to take at night. Then I had 7 boxes on the side so I could mark each day of the week that I took the pills. My skin was improving, but I was frustrated about how many pills I was taking. I told myself that I would relax about and avoid stressing out if I forgot a pill.... but that's unl

Hey, here I am

Why am I writing this? I've been inspired by the people here. Hopefully I'll soon have my own inspirational story. As for my past... I got acne when I was 10 years old. I got acne and my period that year--huge hormonal changes, especially for someone so young. I remember always being bullied about my acne. My older brothers had severe acne and I had developed moderate-severe acne at a young age. My face was always red and irritated. As I grew older and got into high school, I fortu
