Cucumber and acne?

In a nutshell, i have had a bad outbreak the last few weeks. I attribute most of it to the weather, perhaps stress?

One thing in my diet, i eat quite healthy, is that i have been eating a whole english cucumber 5 times a week....

I know cukes can be hard for people to digest, but could it be part of the problem????

serious discussions pls!

well there is a diet that a group of formeracne sufferers follow that involves eliminating nightshades, among other things. Cucumber falls into this category and so you may want to see what happens when you give it up for 2 - 4 weeks.

HTH ;-)

I don't understand...how could a cucumber be bad for you? Or even beneficial. There's nothing in it! It's all water. I know I can eat 1-2 cucumbers and not be full at all.
