Post Atkins Diet

I used to do the Atkins diet before I got adult acne, and I would notice a considerable difference in my skin. It was clearer looking and smoother and the whites of my eyes were brighter. I'm thinking about going on it again and seeing how low carbs will effect my cystic acne. I've been megadosing on beta carotene, zinc and B5 with little improvement and although the Atkins diet is somewhat controversial, I think experimenting with it for a couple weeks couldn't hurt.

Anyone else tried low carbs to help their skin?
