So I already blogged my entire journey if you want to check out my profile, but long story short going vegan + stopping wearing foundation + stopping the harsh medications on my skin CURED my acne. And it had to be all three of those at the same time, because I tried isolating them and none of them worked alone. I used an elimination diet to figure out that eggs, dairy and meat were all making my skin break out. I HIGHLY recommend doing a strict elimination diet to figure out exactly what make Y... Read More
I actually had clear skin when I went vegan (I didn't go vegan because of skin problems, but because I wanted to try it out). 6 months into being vegan I began breaking out for the first time in years. I remained vegan for another 6 months and my skin never got better until I went to the doctor and got on medication. I am no longer vegan. I'm not saying that it was the diet that caused the acne, but it certainly didn't help at all to prevent it. Eating healthy is great for your overall health, b... Read More
As all people I know which have tried paleo diet, my acne completely disappeared in a few days...I basically read all the scientific studies and it seems that protein intake increases the levels of IGF-1 on the LONG TERM. And when you have high IGF-1 levels, as soon you eat carbs, you will get acne. So actually when you turn paleo you might think you are cured but actually you are not at all, you are just cheating. That's the lonly explanation I could find to explain the results. Because studies... Read More
I think success depends on which type of acne-sufferer you are. I had acne from age 12 to 23 or so. I originally got rid of the cycle using the regimen, but now I'm successful through diet and avoiding picking, though I am not perfect in this.
I am also on a high carb, low fat vegan diet. My goal in doing this was never to clear up my skin. I had a terrible addiction to sweets. For several weeks, I would drive home on my commute and imagine getting my next chocolate or candy. Once I got h... Read More
-Ethical -Didn't seem to have any affect on acne
-Hard to follow, of course I've read for a lot of people cutting dairy out really seems to help. I first tried cutting out dairy, and then I decided to just go the whole way and become vegan. Sadly, neither worked, but it might work for you, so it's worth a try. ... Read More
Cleared my skin including my stubborn bacne and chest. I was also drinking alot of water with it. I actually was suprised it worked for me. I still had small breakouts but nothing like before. Slowly but surely I started eating meat but only once a week and my skin still stayed pretty clear. -hard to stick to
-may take several months to clear Moderation is the key. Staying away from greasy foods can make a big difference in your skin. This diet can work if you stick to it. ... Read More
Helping your skin and health in general none so far, maybe when it comes to the social aspect of keeping the diet I have been on a high carb low fat vegan diet for about a year and I have been experiencing amazing results. I follow the guidelines of the 80 10 10 diet by Dr. Doug Graham but I'm not 100% raw.
Coffee, oils and animal products are not part of my diet anymore and it took almost 8 months to my skin get clear, I still have some hyperpigmentation scars and some pimple every once in... Read More
