Re: change in diet cured me
My overall dietary pattern is what caused my acne, not one or two specific foods. Eliminating all of the following cured my adult, severe, cystic acne:
"Hydrogenated oils, heated oils (except saturated fats like coconut oil), fortified foods, refined sugar, refined white anything (rice, flour, bread, sugar etc), extreme denatured foods (like cheetos, denatured grain cereals), dairy and all products containing dairy from supplement products to food products, eggs + gluten in the beginning. Also excess caffeine and excess alcohol."
It wasn't until I eliminated these and replaced lost nutrients that my acne was gone completely. If I eat like this again, it comes back. I am still very sensitive to dairy in this fashion. I don't eat like this, and my acne is gone forever. I don't even have to wash my face. I have clear skin all the time.
