What should I do?

Recommended Posts


im a teenager and surprise suprise I've got acne! 

Anyways I thought I'd give dieting a try!

Any ideas of what I should try out/what foods to cut out? I'll try each diet for 2 weeks which is long enough right?

what I've tried:
Completely quit dairy, and sugar... 

Could this be the problem: I eat LOTS of sourdough bread daily, Could this be the cause of my acne?

Thanks in advance!

For me changing my diet improved my acne really much! You really should give it a try.
Sourdough bread may have a high glycemic load, that means it can spike your blood sugar and worsen your acne.
But everyone is different. I eat lots of bread every day and for me it makes no difference. I also always try to eat whole grain bread which has a lower glycemic load. 

Sugar was a big acne trigger for me. I now try to limit my sugar intake to 50 grams a day. You should monitor your skin and write down what you eat. This way you can find out what triggers your acne.
