i have been following a low gi, alkalising diet however i started eating a large amount of raw spinach and spinach as well as brocollit. The next day I woke up with cystic acne on my chest, face and back. I have had back acne on my face but not before on my chest. I then stupidly decided to squeeze the living sh*t out of it and have numerous wounds on my chest.
I did some research- high iodine contributes to acne raw spinanch has an higher amount of iodine than the cooked one . Spinanch is good for you so I will be taking this in a small amount, eating around 200g of spinach wasn't a clever thing to do.
