Plan B



I have been all cheery and positive about my skin over the last few days because I really thought it was clearing up. My cheek pimples had dried up and I was just left with the red marks. But pride comes before a fall, and over the course of 24 hours I now have 4 new spots on my cheeks and at least one lurking beneath the surface. I can't identify what has brought this on. It has now been 3 weeks exactly since I've cut out refined sugars and I have been really consistent with that, but obviously it hasn't helped as much as I thought.

So, plan B. While I have cut down on dairy recently I am still eating some. So I'm going to try going cold turkey on that for a few weeks. No milk, cheese, yoghurt or cream. It will be miserable because I am a cheese fiend, but this is getting ridiculous. I am now 24 years old and (apart from a few spells on different medications) I have not had clear skin for the last 10 years. I refuse to believe that because of my PCOS I have to deal with this for the rest of my life, it must also be related to lifestyle. mustn't it? eusa_pray.gif

I'm still using the Differin. I know that I'm probably flogging a dead horse, but it's got to the point where I don't dare abandon it in case the acne takes over my whole face (it has been known). It feels like damage-limitation.

If the dairy-free thing doesn't work then I'm not sure what I'll do. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
