Are Constipation And Acne Related?

While I managed to change my diet, increased fruits and veggies, and I'm reducing refined sugar, I had a little bout with the plumbing not working right, apparently not getting enough fiber. Suffice to say, things got stopped up in an unpleasant way. I started taking some psyllium seed fiber (generic Metamucil), and things are much happier now. Would that have affected my skin?

High calcium/dairy intake increases constipation. Eat more laxative fruits and vegetables like beets, papaya, apples etc.
