It's Hard

I truly believe I finally know what gives me acne. I've spent years and years researching and learning, and now I feel I have the toosl I need to overcome this monster. It's so hard though, probably the hardest cure I could discover because it means giving up so much food that I love. and I'm such a big food lover!! I become addicted to sugar. It's crazy. If I have a little, I just can't stop! And for weeks I try to wean myself off because it just becomes a landslide. For example

This Is It

I know how to be clear. For me, it's all about avoiding dairy and maintaining a low glycemic diet. I'm including lots of fruits and veggies into my diet as well as supplementing with cod liver oil, the expensive fermented kind from green pastures. Today is day one. I'm tires of this. I now know how to control my acne. Now it's only a matter of self control.

Week 6

My cruise was amazing and my skin was just as great! I was clear the entire time. However, I do have some slightly scary news. I had dairy on the cruise, every day, and never broke out. I'm reeeally hoping my skin clearing isn't actually the BC finally kicking in because I've completely stopped it now. But now that I'm back home I'm back to my no dairy diet and healthy eating. Last time it took a month before my skin broke out after stopping BC, so I'm gonna give in another month or

Week 4

Whaat?! It's been a month since starting my new regimen? That's amazing ha. So, for a quick update, skin is looking great! I'm clear today! For a deeper look, read along... I have been completely milk, cheese, yogurt (any direct dairy) free for 4 weeks. Ok, I've had a few slip ups and almost every time, the very next day I have a new pimple or cyst. Same goes for when I completely overdosed on junk food one day. I have been eating very small amounts of processed foods that co

Week 3

I applied heat to that cyst on and off on saturday and by the end of the day it came to a head! A lot of heat, I've found, is the best solution for a cyst. So I popped and cleaned it and it was a little smaller by the next day when I was able to pop it again. Today, it's smaller still but red. I did have some cheese dip on Saturday, but not too much, and I've had no new breakouts so that's a relief. So far, it seems I only get a breakout/cyst if I over do the junk food or dairy at one sitting. A

No Dairy But Junk Food

It's Saturday and I woke up with a small cyst on my right cheek, close to the one that's just finishing healing. Yesterday I didn't have any dairy but I did have a significant amount of junk food. My hubby and I went to the movies and I got a corn dog, dots and a root beer and ate everything haha. Other than that I had homemade spice muffins for breakfast and some pretzels dipped in peanut butter and grapes for lunch. So perhaps that's where it came from. I haven't eaten a few things that incl

Halfway Through Week Two

So I posted about how my weekend binge sent me into a breakout. After that day I had one more pimple barely begin to form and it was zapped with a little acne medicine (which is rare lol). I also popped and cleaned/treated the biggest zit I got on my left cheek. I did that last night and it looks much better this morning. I have been dairy free, once again for 3 days (this is my 3rd day, so two full days), and once again, the redness and inflammation I received over the weekend has drastic

Week 2

I am so weak lol. I had dairy over the weekend. I had a half cup of ice cream on friday. No change. I had chicken parmesan on Saturday. Small breakout on my chin (two small pimples, no cysts). Sunday...whew...I was bad. I had pizza and a milkshake not to mention a few cookies : /. This morning: Small breakout on my left cheek and definite increase in redness/irritation. In a way, I'm glad to have eaten dairy as it just convinced me more that it has a direct and immediate affect on my acne. So I

Here's my routine for anyone who cares: Morning: Simply rinse with cold water Apply small amount of foundation/concealer to red areas, pimples Drink a 16 oz breakfast shake made with: -strawberries -banana -flaxseed -almond milk -spinach -oatmeal It's actually quite tasty, is totally pure and healthy and keeps me full until lunch. Then I head to work. For lunch I've been having a spinach salad with fruit toppings. My favorite topping

Week 1. Day 3

From all my experimenting with acne and skin solutions, I've determined ONE thing: my acne is homronal. I think there are few cases where acne is caused by topical issues (bad exfoliation, allergic reactions, makeup etc), however I'd say most acne does have a hormonal foundation. I don't believe I have a legit hormonal disorder (think PCOC), I simply believe my body is out of whack. I think the problem goes even deeper than hormones. I think it's a full body issue. I believe that my years
