How long until bad food causes a breakout?

with alcohol, I notice breakouts within 2-3hours after I eat.

I am not sure about other food though, I've dropped the whole diet thing and have not noticed any difference. it's already been 6 months too.

the 2-3 hour thing happens to me as well, if i eat loads of sugary things or breads/ pastas, my existing acne will get noticeably inflamed, an i will begin getting new pimples.

Well, I can tell you this, emmanuel. After weeks of vigilance in hygene and avoiding excess sugar, my skin is clear. I feel as though bacteria are lurking, waiting for the first opportunity to feast, followed by an orgy of reproduction. I know from experiene that if I were to eat a bag of cookies right now, and wash them down with a few glasses of soda or milk, that zits would begin to appear in a few hours.

i've been on a low simple carb/low sugar/low dairy diet for about 11 months. i notice i am especially sensitive to sugar, esp white flour product sweets (like cakes). after i eat these a pimple or two shows up within 1 - 3 days.

just wondering...anyone know of any pimple PREVENTIVE food to eat/drink AFTER you eat something "bad"? lost of lemon juice? shot of apple cider vinegar?

i wonder about the lemon, because it supposed help the liver cleanse impurities (i already drink lemon juice 2/day). and the apple cider vinegar i read helps restore the ph on your "system" (haven't tried this though but i've read some people have had successes in controlling their acne by drinking acv)

About a week or two weeks..

I've been very bad hee hee diet wise for TWO WEEKS>like milk and cereal and chocolate pudding, potato chips, candy, CHEESE (i have a fast metabolism and actually wanted to gain 5 punds but belive me I ain't complainin one iota about the fast metabolism), I've gone mad I know it! basically I almost never have even tiny breakouts nowadays but I got a very mild spattering of pimples, like very tiny ones on my forehead and more clogged pores, obviously clogged ones UGH!!!! also, a big pimple on my stomach> can you imagine! But my acne has been rare and i've also been on accutane 6 years ago so even this junky food doens;t cause acne that's bad or even moderate but no doubt the extra carbs and the extra dairy for sure caused a clog pore party on my face and a zit on my belly>no more dairy for me or at least not as much as i've been packing away!
