Acne During- Or Post-Refeeding In Anorexics?

Recommended Posts

I was in the hospital with anorexia and underwent an aggressive refeeding program, which most likely messed with/reset my hormones, resulting in a case of acne unlike any I've dealt with since my teens or 20's. The fact that they were using crappy hospital pseudo-foods didn't help.

Although it spits in the face of my dairy and bread laden meal plan, I am back on a diet of "clear skin foods," simultaneously taking activated charcoal caps, using an activated charcoal mask, skin-clearing foundation, a natural face wash with tea tree oil, sea buckthorn supplements, sea buckthorn oil on my skin twice a day, etc.

I have samples of retina-A, a bottle of doxy and some benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid products such as La Roche-Posay in case this gentler approach is unsuccessful.

I have also ordered a sample of AcneScript.

Has anyone dealt with this issue? Any input appreciated!
