  1. This is the first time in a looooooooooong time that I've woken up every day for a week straight excited to look in the mirror! Every day I can see my active pimples getting smaller, my hyperpigmentation getting lighter, and no new pimples forming!!! *does a little dance* The saving grace of this diet has been avocados w/ Frank's hot sauce on top. I initially wasn't going to eat spices but I LOVE Frank's and had to try it - it hasn't caused me to break out so I'm keeping it in my diet. But ser
  2. So yesterday I introduced eggs. I made shakshuka and then I also made a dairy free custard (both were absolutely delicious!). About halfway through yesterday I saw the beginnings of a cyst on my cheek. I was hoping that it would go away but today it got even bigger, plus I had some tiny bumps form too. So it looks like eggs are one of my trigger foods I'm pretty bummed, because I know how many foods have eggs in them, but I'm hoping that if they're present in trace amounts it won't bother me.
  3. I am feeling so good about the caveman regimen this time around. Every time I look in the mirror, I feel like my skin is looking better and better! No new breakouts, and the two spots I have on the left side of my mouth are getting smaller (well, the one is coming to head so it's further along in its healing process). AND it looks like my scars are fading more quickly (but it's hard to tell). All in all, I am VERY optimistic. My diet is still just fruits and veggies, nothing else. I real
  4. So it's been two weeks since I posted on here! Here's the update: So my first trigger food once I started reintroducing foods back into my diet was eggs. I added grains and my skin was fine. Then I added chicken - another breakout. Then red meat - another breakout. Then dairy - another breakout. (I did let my skin breathe in between adding foods for a few days so I knew it was the food and not a residual breakout from a previous food) I will say that the breakouts were not bad, just whiteh
  5. I can't believe it's already been over a month!! That went by so freaking quickly. So I've definitely pegged dairy as the culprit of my cystic acne. Last weekend, I ate a pumpkin roll with cream cheese frosting in the center, then went to a Friendsgiving dinner in which EVERY DISH had dairy (except the turkey itself) and the next day - BAM. Cystic acne on my forehead. Since then I've been good about avoiding dairy and no more cysts - though today I ordered bubble tea not even thinking about da
  6. So the next food I introduced into my diet was chocolate (mostly because I've been craving it hardcore). I introduced it three days ago by making my own chocolate, since I wanted to avoid dairy and processed sugar. Basically I melted down unsweetened chocolate, added coconut oil and some maple syrup, flavored it with either cayenne, coconut or cinnamon (I made three batches), then layered the melted chocolate in mini muffin liners with slices of banana. Then I just cooled them in the freezer, ea
  7. So over the weekend I made a discovery - pineapple makes me break out!! I'm not really sure why, because I can handle other high sugar fruits like mango, maybe it's because of the enzymes? But whatever the case, I now know one of my trigger foods! So exciting! This really just gives me hope that this is all going to work out in the end, that I'm going to know 100% what makes me break out and what doesn't. The reaction wasn't bad, just a couple tiny whiteheads, but obviously the goal is no wh
  8. This seems to be working for me. It hasn’t been a quick process though. I can be 100% clear (if I chose to). But I still need to follow step 1, as I don’t feel I’ve fully completed step 2, and therefore can’t complete step 3. Here’s my suggestions in a nutshell. Step 1 – Elimination diet Figure out your trigger foods and eliminate. For me, going on a 100% whole foods (single ingredient, nothing processed) diet and avoiding the most common allergens keeps me clear (eggs, dairy, mil
  9. My skin is still so clear!! After chocolate I added whole wheat in the form of Ezekiel bread, whole wheat crackers and whole wheat eggless waffles. No breakouts at all! Next on the list is refined flour. I figured that if whole wheat is fine for me, I've already introduced gluten. The only reason I want to get refined flour out of the way is not because I really want to eat much of it, but because I have a bridal shower coming up that's tea party themed and I really want to be able to eat sco
  10. How has it already been 20 days?? Since the mini breakout after eating pineapple, I have had no new breakouts! Yesterday I introduced coconut oil back into my diet, which I'm not worried about, and so far it has done nothing to my skin. My hyperpigmentation is still fading. Can't wait till it's totally gone because that's really the only thing that's making my skin look blemished. I started wearing lipstick again since my skin has been so stable. The whole waiting 4 days to introduce a new fo
  11. So I have officially started reintroducing foods into my diet. I was going to wait until this Saturday, but I went to an event last night thinking I could just have salad, but the salad was already pre-dressed in Caesar and parmesan, so I chose to eat gluten free pasta, which seemed to be the lesser of two evils. I ended up having two plates of it, so at the same time this will be a test for gluten free pasta and high glycemic load. So far so good. No cysts. I had a tiny whitehead pop up arou
