Day 52

Three new spots (two near the chin/lower lip and one on the forehead) and i'm so puzzled as to why this has happened. I'm getting thorougly fed up of this diet and i'm giving it up at the end of the month All i had yesterday to eat and drink was the usual; water, rice cakes and rice milk (also almond milk) sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes with veg, chicken, two eggs, and...thats about it!!! Have finished my capyrilic acid supplements which were a waste of time even at maximum strength

Day 50

Disappointed. My scars never seem to diminish in terms of redness (or rather they do for awhile and then they get re-inflammed again) ALWAYS have red hyperpigmentation marks just below the lips. I sat wide awake last night doing a lsit of things that i've tried to help me overcome my battle with acne. These include Changing pilliow cases often, quitting diet cokes (have had a little success on this one i must admit) Apple cider vinegar tabs and garlic make no difference. Vitamin C, b-c

Day 47

Since cutting out gluten and having no dairy (aswell as sticking to this candida diet pretty strictly over the past few days....apart from the odd diet coke) my skin looks reasonably ok except for quite a few scars here and there. I am trying to lessen the redness of scars by dabbing lemon juice on them at night and it may slowly be working (or it could be just my bodys natural healing process) Anyway i'm quite excited by the prospect of having no gluten in my diet as a lot of people have

day 43

Two days ago i ate deep fried chicken and fries and had a few glasses of wine at a friends house, i also drank a coke earlier in the day and my sleep pattern over the night was pretty bad. Anyway two days later and all i can say is this; BOY AM I PAYING FOR A DAY OF RELAXING THIS DIET AND MESSING WITH MY ROUTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My skin is the worst it's looked for quite awhile. The spots near the lower lip/upper chin are back with a vengence, the ingrown hair on my right chee

Day 40

Despite the fact that i've added lemon juices to my diet (which a lot of people swear by as the ultimate detox of the liver) i can't say my acne has improved all that much. The one near my nose is fading THANK GOD!!! but the one on my cheek that was an ingrown hair doesent seem to want to go in any hurry and i have a few tiny dotty pimples around my temples which arent too bad to be honest. On top of this i really dont feel well at the moment and have relaxed the diet to include a cold diet

Day 37

Annoyed is my word for today. The blemish near my nose just keeps getting re-inflammed all the time and i have had to put some BP on it just to try and get rid of it. The hyperpigmentation marks near my mouth and beard never seem to fade or, like i mentioned in a previous blog, they fade for a certain amount of time but just come back again whenever i have a particularly bad night or something upsets my body. My tongue still is incredibly pale in the mornings but my energy levels are fine.

day 34

Acne is the bane of my life. The huge spot near my nose has gone down somewhat but i have another fairly big one forming on my cheeck in the beard area. On top of that my hyperpigmentation scars below my lips and above my chin have become more red again. There's no actual acne there but the scars are definitely worse. I attribute this to a very rough night on thursday where i hardly got any sleep and i drank a diet coke. It's very frustrating being on this diet as people give you a lot of

Day 31

This wretched spot near my nose wont go away. It's not coming to head or anything it just looks inflammed and angry. Its making me very angry Apart from this my skin isnt looking too bad. I have quite a few blackheads on the side of my cheek and i'm somewhat reluctant to try and extact them as i dont want more inflammed acne. I ate a ton of pumpkin/sunflower seeds yesterday and maybe it's a placebo effect but i always feel they benefit my skin. Sleep pattern is somewhat erratic and i

Day 29

Well after a pretty stressful weekend (and one in which i relaxed the diet to include two diet cokes) i can say my skin isn't looking too bad apart from one nasty spot near my nose. Incidently, this was an old spot that was healing nicely up until the first night i decided to have a diet coke. People will say that a fizzy drink cant react that quickly and that the pimple is due to something else, but i view it as an almighty coincidence if that is the case. Have increased my Capyrilic acid

Day 27

I cheated for the first time proper last night by having a diet coke and a packet of crisps as i was starving. I felt a horrible burning sensation below my lips/upper jaw area later on in the night and was sure i would break out there in the morning. Surprisingly i havent, although my scars from previous acne look redder than they were yesterday and one spot near my nose has become slightly inflammed again. I'd be absolutely amazed if i dont break out really badly in the next few days as my

Day 26

Didnt blog yesterday but my skin isn't looking too bad to be honest. I have been more stressed than ever recently and i'm amazed i havent broken out more (maybe the pimples are going to form an assault soon ) but for now i have one pimple above above my beard near the chin/lower lip area (there again!) and one thats healing nicely on my cheek. My forehead is a bit dotty but they're very tiny and not too noticable. I didn't even wash my face last night as i just went to sleep after a night

Day 24

Apart from looking very dull my skin doesnt look as blotchy today. I've got one nasty pimple on my lower cheek that looks like an ingrown hair (it's in the beard area). I have to say that my beard trimmer that i got for christmas has been excellent at minimizing acne caused through shaving. Obviously it hasn't completely stopped the acne forming (hence the pimple) but it has contirbuted to keeping it at bay. The diet is the same as ever except i have increased my caprylic acid tablets from

Day 23

Skin is not looking so good today. I suppose after a few days of being relatively happy with it i was bound to be brought back down to earth My skin looks somewhat blotchy and although there's only two new spots and they're both quite small, my face just looks irritated with little patches of redness on my cheeks and forehead. My tongue was very pale this morning too and didnt look healthy. I felt a little unwell last night and didnt wash my face at all before going to bed. Having sai

Day 22

No real change in my acne today. Again my skin looks a little dull and the redness of old acne is SLOWLY fading. Got a little inflamed pustule near my chin but its formation was entirely my fault as i tried to squeeze a blackhead the other day and it became infected Nothing new to report on the diet front except i've begun taking Quercetin on the advice of a food allergist nurse/practitioner. I've been taking anti-histamines for a good 5-6 years non-stop and i was told it was much better

day 21

Just a quick entry today. I ate far too much last night (only foods that are allowed, i didnt cheat) and i was somewhat worried that i might pay for it today. Surprisingly the acne between my lip and jaw is still healing and i have no new acne to report. My skin does look a little dull but that could be because i put a little BP on my forehead to try and strip away a few whiteheads. Overall though i'm rather happy and pleased that things seem to be on the mend. My tongue is still very pale

Day 20

My skin is looking pretty good today, best it's looked in a week. The spots on the lower lip/above the chin area are fading and a lot of the dotty red spots on my cheek have faded too. The only explanations i can give for this (other than the obvious; that it is the natural healing process) was that i drank a lot of water yesterday and washed my face with only warm water (no cleanser/ exfoliant) Whatever the cause i'm very happy that i'm not waking up. looking in the mirror and cursing my skin a

day 19

Another day and more acne below my lower lip on the right hand side of my face. Very inflammed, has a horrible white centre. Aside from this area, i have a lot of tiny red marks from old inflammed acne on my right cheek (again the right side of my face is the worse). It looks very mild but having said this, the acne i had there was really quite minimal anyway and i didnt expect the redness to last this long. Forehead is reasonably ok, quite a few white heads but you cant really tell in natural l

day 18

Woke up today to find little change in my acne except for one new little pimple below two HUGE buggers beneath my lower lip (I always get them here, why o why?) Have put a little tea tree oil on it in the hope that it might look less angry tomorrow. In terms of diet, it's just another day of no cheating on a low sugar diet; Breakfast: four or five slices of yeast free soda bread, three or four rice cakes and supplements. Snack; Sunflower seeds Dinner; salad with some quinola

Candida diet

Have decided to keep a blog of my acne progress while on the candida diet. Hopefully if i keep blogging and recording my progress i can work out any patterns that are improving or aggrivating my condition. Background of my Mild-Moderate acne. Started getting little spots on my nose as early as eleven years old but they were only minor. The first years of adolescence were mostly acne free except for TERRIBLE blackheads, particularly on the nose. The condition (if i remember correctly) b
