Question for those who tried a gluten free diet

Recommended Posts

Did you break out during the first week? I started four days ago, and I'm not completely off gluten, but tapering it down and eat half as much as usual. In the last 24 hours I've gotten around 10 new pimples, which is very upsetting because my skin was almost flawless before. In case you're wondering why I'm going gluten free despite my skin being already clear, it's for the health benefits. Also, I've heard the GFCF diet can help with anxiety problems which I've struggled with for most of my life.

Yes, there's really no way to avoid that unless you stop producing sebum. The delayed breakouts IMO are due to hyperkeratinization in the pores that has not inflamed yet due there being not enough sebum in there, which takes some time to build up.

The thing is though, there was no WORSE breakout when I stopped, I just continued to gain a few pimples like I always did. If you're seeing worse results I dunno what to tell you.
