nothing really different. i had a minor breakout this past week and the only trigger i can think of was stress and a little lack of sleep. other than that, just plugging along! oh yeah, and i drank pretty heavily two nights ago but dont seem to have any effects. i drank 2 glasses of carrot and kale juice the next day just to be safe, going for a cleansing effect.

    You are looking AMAZING, girl! I'm so happy for you. All it looks like is that you have redmarks and that's not so bad at all.

    Hey, your skin is looking really good :| I admire your decision to try the diet approach. I am doing something similar after visiting the naturopath. Good luck with it!

    Your skin is alot similiar to mine mate, like where I get my breakouts. Looking like its all healing well tho :| Im also going the natural route at trying to clear my skin. Have been cutting out carbs, sugars, anything thats grease food really,lol, cause I think it just comes out your pores then, am also vegan aswell. But you've started a healthy diet trend now :dance:

    Hey Katie... I'm a Katie too... teehee....

    I just want to say that I really admire you for posting your pictures and sharing your stories with us.... I enjoy reading your posts....

    But.....

    Please don't take offense to this, it's just a thought...

    Have you ever considered that maybe it's not diet that is effecting your acne? I don't know if it's just my computer, but I honestly don't see much of a difference... could it possibly be hormonal?? or something else... I tend to break out worse during my cycle....

    Have you ever tried birth control pills?? maybe you are on them already? if so, any results?? I'm considering that for myself but would be happier if I got accutane.... I'm 24, enough already.......

    Keep posting Katie, and I hope you see results in the future..... Good luck and take care.....

    Katie

    hey, it's not so bad

    u should try with mandelic acid

    i'm using it three times a week

    and the other three nights i use 'clindoxyl gel' which is 1% clindamicin and 5% benzoyl peroxide

    it really works!

    Wow, you look amazing. As far as I can tell, the only problem you have now is scarring. You're definitely an inspiration to me!

    I can see a difference from the first picture to the lastest one. In the first one you had zits, whereas in the latest one I see mostly just redmarks.

    So whatever you are doing seems to be making progress.
