  1. Sorry, I know this is an olddddddddddd thread. I've had a fair few breakouts lately and I couldn't work out why. I was Googling (as you do) and came across keto and paleo diets and people saying these low carb, high fat diets helped their skin. I spent about 2 hours yesterday stressing about the amount of carbs I actually eat, which were foods I thought were meant to be healthy for you and good for acne prone skin such as sweet potatoes, quinoa, GF oats and some GF bread. Then reading
  2. Bumping this thread with research from just last year (2018) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5949547/

  11. Thanks. So it's day 10 now and a lot of what was coming out on Sunday/Monday is healing. I'm still having some minor blemishes and pimples come up but it's manageable. I will continue on with the MO for a while longer. Overall, I have noticed my skin get much dryer and less oilier. I can imagine that's perfect for someone who had oily skin to start with but for me, whose skin was already on the dry side it's been a bit annoying.
  12. I think oats are okay because although their GI isn't low it's the GL which is most important and that is low. So eating oats shouldn't spike your blood sugar level as it's passed through much slower. Correct me if I am wrong though.
  13. Sorry to hear this. Sadly this forum is pretty inactive these days so I don't know if you'll get much response. I do empathise - although my acne is rather mild, I am 35 (male) and still suffer with regular breakouts and I know how confidence-knocking it can be. Aside from Accutane, have you gone back to a dermatologist for any other treatment? From what say, it's clearly an internal issue. I am similar, in that, these days it seems like pretty much whatever I eat causes some kind of in
  14. Thanks for finding the link. So I've been testing MO since Monday last week, this is now day 8 and to be honest I've only seen my skin get worse with each day. I'm concerned this just isn't working for me. I'm finding my skin feeling irritated every time I use the MO and I'm getting lots of breakouts on my neck (which is a common place for me to breakout) but they look very angry and are sore. I feel like, if this was working for me, I'd be noticing some kind of improvement by day 8 right?
  15. So you use it like a moisturizer essentially then? Rather than a toner? I mean, you're not adding it to a cotton pad and wiping your face you're actually using your hands and massaging it into the skin?
