Hey everyone!

So...over the past couple of years I've been observing my skin. I have come to the conclusion

that my diet has by been the reason why my acne keeps coming back. I know 100% that it's the

sugary foods I've been eating. It's just so hard to stay away from sweet stuff. It's an addiction.

For the last month, I've been drinking a lot of 'green monsters' (a.k.a fresh squeezed smoothie out of raw spinach, banana, and almond milk) every single morning. Wow, not only does this stuff give me energy, but I honestly think it helped clear up my skin. But then of course, I broke my own rule and went in for the chocolates. I'm telling you...it's quite impossible to NOT eat it, because there are always goodies on my kitchen table staring me in the face begging me to eat them. it's tempting, and unfortunately, the temptation always wins :|

so, from this day forward...I am setting a goal for myself and sticking to healthy diet. I will keep fighting this, and I will win in the end. sooner or later. And for the rest of you out there, before you start going crazy on finding the right skin care products for you...please look at the foods that you eat, they can be the ones causing your acne. then find a simple gentle cleanser and light moisturizer for your skin. that's all you need. take small steps, don't rush into loading a bunch of products on your face, it WILL get worse if you do. everything takes time. trust me, it will all go away! I promise.

I have to agree with you, for those of us with an uncanny addiction to the "sweet stuff" the road to clear skin is much more difficult. I find that the best thing to do, is to simply not buy them. It is much easier to resist buying sugary items than it is to resist eating them!Kizer,
