It worked!

Ok. I have struggled with breakouts and bad acne all my life... I am a female and I have been on this site years ago. I just wanted to tell you all what worked for me . When nothing has.

It was getting off the bcp and also... CHANGING MY DIET. yes it was journey it took a while as well. I didnt liver cleanse or do anything like. What I did do was, I started eating all veggies and fruits... Yes against what i was taught . Carbs sugar blah blah blah. I started drinking and eating lots of green leafy veggies. Lots of berries. I ate mostly salads with everything on them but no dressing . Greens , anything green . The one supplement I did take was acai fruit pulp and glutathione. Anyways why Im posting this is because I would feel like a complete asshole if I didn't . ( Eric cartman's voice) .

Oh ya and I know what its like to think acne is the end of the world.. to cry to feel like hiding all that, and to avoid going out sometimes. So ya I tried just about everything on here and prescriptions so I think It is kind of my duty to post Im clear and have been so for about 2 years. feel free to ask me anything and Ill try my best to help. Cuz I want good karma >.>

also if i did go off the pill i would get very bad acne... thats why they put me on the pill. so i know for a fact is the diet thing it is.

Hey Wildcrow. :D It's awesome that you've managed to clear up by eliminating bad foods from your diet. I think sugar can trigger a lot of people's skin issues. I've tried eating healthfully and unfortunately my diet doesn't seen to affect my acne much (I know that sugar does tend to break me out a little if I eat too much of the simple stuff) but I chow down on vegetables and fruit like it's my religion and I'm still, ironically, a pizza face. :lol:

You were taught to not eat fruit and vegetables?

What I meant was carbs and sugars . It took awhile it wasn't like it was over night. I did break out the first couple months. Here's the thing though, I had tried everything even accutane twice. I was at my point where I was thinking I may as well be healthy because this acne is not leaving. I started with green smoothies and berries and low carb fruits. Then as I became healthier I started on every fruit in unlimited quantities. I also added that 500 mg of glutathione. I went vegan also . If I ate something bad I would wash it down with a green smoothie with fruit. My advice is hang in there. My skin is so nice now and I get many compliments on it. Oh one more thing. I eliminated alot of stress in my life, such as negative people and focused on fun hobbies and good sleep. If you have not tired Glutathione I would seriously add it to your supplements. :cool:

Did you stop taking birth control slowly or all at once? Also which kind do you use? I'm currently on yasmin and am thinking about taking myself off of it.
