Hi HAKOB!

I think anything in excess is going to be bad for your body. You'll want to limit both salt and sugar intakes, because high amounts of those could hurt your body. As for alcohol and weed... I don't know how they affect acne, but I do know that they damage your body mentally/physically. Alcohol might add stress and make you sleep less which in turn will damage your skin. Stress leads to skin problems most of the time. I'm not so sure about the weed though, you'll have to ask someone else :razz:

And what should i do not eat at all.

I believe the people who believe acne to be diet-related, me included, consider sugar the biggest bad-guy. "The Paleo Diet" (if you have read about this book) has the opinion that sugar, salt and quite frankly all kinds of refined and pre-fabricated foods are sinners.

But I think it's up for yourself to decide. If you want to get to the bottom of this, try writing down times when you eat extra amounts of sugar, salt or drink alcohol or smoke weed (I assume it's that kind of weed!? :razz: ) and then check if your acne responds to this. There's really no idea in avoiding all these things you really enjoy, if you don't see any effect on your acne.

Hehe of course, Russia is the home of Vodka ;) I think some people believe that the reason why we get new pimples from alcohol is that it is very drying and dehydrating. My older brother, who also drinks quite a bit in the weekends, has told me he always makes sure to drink lots of water after a night with alcohol to re-hydrate yourself

About salt, I found that it is not that hard to let go of. There are plenty of other ways to spice up your food, if you look into it a little bit.

I think you'll find this article to be helpful.

According to the article "iodine and its salt iodide stimulate the sebaceous glands and cause acne eruptions." It also lists some foods and the iodide content of each one.. Butter got a 26, which I guess in an OK score, considering beef liver got a score of 325! :surprised:

Alcohol seems to help my acne. I don't know why.

Salt DEFINITELY helps VERY MUCH, but not by eating it. When I go swimming at the beach I get salt on my face constantly and it dries into my face when I get out of the water. It helps so much, it's like a miracle for me.

Sugar, I don't know. Doesn't affect me. And weed, well, sometimes it doesn't affect my skin and sometimes it does. I don't know if I'm imagining it or not, but it definitely doesn't help. (Me, at least.)
