Something Helps My Acne

Recommended Posts

It's hard to control all the variables, but I find that when I started improving my protein in-take for weight training, my acne was getting less. I never even focused that much on my acne - still did the usual washing. But, my friends complemented me after a few months? of upping my protein by last December - hey, your acne is gone... good job!

I noticed that recently I stopped worrying so much about protein generally because of job-hunting/girl friend; I was breaking out a little more - mostly on my back. One thing for sure is that sleep/sleep deprivation seemed to have no significant effect (in fact, I was petty sleep deprived in the last few months leading up to my December exams and even a bit now). When I did up my protein in-take again, things started settling down... I also started taking fish oil capsules - which may be helping, BUT I did take them well after the first time my acne was beginning to drastically clear up. This includes foods like whey protein mixed with yogurt or milk, always having eggs, meat, some lentils/beans - but also of course I don't neglect fruits and vegetables (I always was like that even with bad acne, however).
