I read that sugar and aspartame are bad for acne. So, what kind of sweetener would be less harmful?

Thanks a lot,

i've read that LIFE is bad for acne. being pessimistic there.

lets see, what all has been said to make acne worse:

sunlight

sugar

sweating

caffeine

alcohol/drugs

stress

sex/masturbation

carbs

chocolate

greasy foods

spicy foods

touching your face

dirty towel/pillowcase

i could go on for years. if you were to take everything to heart, you would have to live your life as a vegetable, and i guarantee you still wouldn't have clear skin. i say just live your life without worrying about every single thing you do and you'll be happier. stressing yourself because you ate half of a cookie last night is not a way to live! i'd rather do what i want to, and stop skimping on life and get an extra pimple or two.

they have sweeteners called stevia and lo han. stevia is a plant extract and lo han is a fruit but they both do not raise blood sugar levels and have antioxidants.

stevia is good...tricky for me to use because it is so much sweeter than sugar. i always use too much...

splenda is also good..but not as good for you as stevia - no antioxidants

Amen to that Botchla! =D> This stuff about blaming every damn thing for acne gets on my nerves. I mean, what the hell is one to do, watch everything you do eat, say feel, etc

Bah, live a little, if it causes more acne then so be it.

I doubt sugar causes acne.
