Low Carb / No sugar worked for me I think
Hello. I came here to post about back pain, but thought I would stop by and post since My acne mysteriously cleared about 9 months ago.
It was awful. I had those zits that were big. They were deep and if one came it would stay for months. Mainly in the t zone and around mouth, between eyes etc.
Anyway, after a friend saw the proactive commercial, she wanted me to try it. I thought about it, but I didn't have the money to order it from tv.
I was in the middle of one of my breakouts and I saw some stuff at walmart while looking at new cleansers. It was the acnefree product that says compare to proactive. It is like 17.99 - 19.99. Anyway, I picked it up.
At this same time, I was starting the low carb diet with my friend.
I cut down on carbs. 50 or less a day, plus, no sugar. Or at least very little.
Anyway, My face overwhelmed me when it became smooth and clear like never before! I was amazed and so glad I had bought the acne free stuff.
I went through 3 new things of it, but the lotion of it was adding up because it didn't go as fast as the cleanser and toner. So, I decided in august since my face was crystal clear, and never had been (by the way I am now 36) that I would look at the ingrediants and buy something simular to the cleanser and toner and just use the lotion. I vowed if I got a zit I would go back to the cleanser, and toner. Anyway, I found the oxyclean with benzoyl peroxide cleanser in tall bottle, and plain witch hazel. So, I used this in combination wiht the left over acne free lotion. Still, after 5 months of doing this, NOT ONE BUMP. NOT ONE!!!!!!! This is like a miracle. I don't know if it is the acne free method or the low carb diet that did this. All I know is that I am not using the complete acne free anymore and still on the no sugar low carb diet and my face is so so clear. Very oily but clear. Never a breakout anymore. No more scars, etc.
It is the first time in my life since 7th grade that this has happened to me.
So , my advice is if you are having breakouts and can't get rid of the bumps with acnefree/proactive, etc. Try cutting out carbs and sugar and see if that works!
