After a lot of trial and error, came the conclusion that it was gluten all along. I went on a plant based only diet almost 2 years ago to fix my heart health and my skin got worse! It wasn't until I completely removed gluten that years of horrible cysts went away. After almost 25 years of suffering and psychological damage I am finally clear as long as I stay away from anything that has gluten in it. I didn't clear up over night, it actually took about 2 months to become completely clear all... Read More
I never write reviews but I have to share!! I am 26 years old and I’ve suffered from acne from the age of 16. Recently I started to develop a rash around my nose and chin so I went to see my Dr who told me I had Eczema!! This was the last straw for me, I’ve had no confidence for years and have missed out on so many fun times with my friends and said no to dates with guys because of my skin, it’s literally ruined my teenage years and now my early adult years. About 7 days ago I broke down in te... Read More
Everyone is different, not everyone is sensitive to the same foods. My skin used to be red and inflamed 24/7. I cut out gluten for about a month and my skin became so much calmer and less inflamed which in turn meant less breakouts. I now follow a gluten free diet and my skin has improved so much. I still get small breakouts but far less and they heal faster. Give it a try for a month, it can't hurt. ... Read More
I'm 16 years old and have tried everything to get rid of my acne.. since I was 12 I've had it all over my forehead. I had tried everything you can think of, from natural DIYs to expensive high dollar face wash, but literally nothing made a difference. I was so disappointed.. Recently I went to the ER because I couldn't breathe and the doctor told me I had bronchospasms (a type of asthma where your lungs spam due to allergies). The doctor also told me I had bad excema under my right eye. My mom i... Read More
I'm a 36 yr old woman and have had acne all of my life. It has affected my confidence, everything. I can't even believe I didn't try this until now. I've done every single thing including removing dairy years ago, ensuring hygiene is excellent (changing pillow cases, cleaning my phone frequently, make up brushes... you name it.) I could NOT figure out why my acne never went away, even as I got older. I did notice a good improvement when I increased water intake, cut out the majority of junk food... Read More
At 40 years old I developed moderate-severe cystic acne out of no where. I had never struggled with such bad acne. It was predominantly on my chin, jawline and sometimes my cheeks and forehead. I was prescribed countless topicals and oral antibiotics (including birth control and spiro). Nothing helped. My dermatologist, my gynecologist and my primary care physician all told me that Accutane was the only remaining option. And while I wasn't opposed to trying it, I wanted to exhaust less extreme o...

For the past 5+ years, i have experienced moderate to severe cystic acne. My diet consisted of mostly fast food, sugar, and simple carbs (crackers, cookies, pretzels, etc.) and I honestly just felt terrible most of the time. I initially started going on a gluten/dairy free diet simply because i had heard that it was much healthier and to see if would be a cure for my chronic fatigue. I have now been gluten and dairy free for about 6 months and can honestly say it was one of the best decisions o... Read More
I posted a super long detailed message and the site malfunctioned and it was all lost. I'm too aggravated to rewrite it all. Backstory: inflamed, tiny zits popped up everywhere weeks after I weaned my baby at 30 years old. I am now 34. I am finally cured. The wheat free diet started working after only 4 days! Totally clear by the 2 week. Unreal! 95% of bumps just gone. Still a few near hairline where my hair is greasy. I had done every topical and skin supplement on this earth. It was getting w...

I've discovered gluten (grains) is the source of my acne on lower cheeks and around the mouth. After i realized Dairy was the reason of my back acne i went gluten free to discover my face acne is cause by gluten. Trough a lot of time spent on trial and error on gluten free diet i finaly made a sustainable gluten free diet and my face stoped breaking out after just a week of gluten free diet.
The main culprit of my back acne was dairy and lower cheek, around the mouth acne was gluten.

I have had cystic acne for about ten years. On my back and shoulders, on my face mostly around jaw on the cheeks and around mouth. I have been to three different dermatologists and I had an Accutane-like treatment. Nothing helped. About three years ago I started exercising and my acne improved. I never ate a lot of dairy but to get more muscle I started drinking more milk and it worsened my acne so I stopped, that was about a year ago. Then my dad bought some green tea. I drank about three cups ... Read More
I've been off of gluten for about three months now, my main motivation in making that change was to see if it would make a difference in my moderate hormonal acne. While I have felt a generally better sense of well being (more energy, less stomach aches, bloating, gas, and indigestion) I haven't seen much improvement in terms of my skin. The bumps on my cheeks have calmed down a bit but I still get nasty hormonal flare ups along my chin, jaw, and near my mouth ... Read More
