Re: It was the Splenda
I don't often visit the acne board, but your subject heading attracted my attention. I have rosacea and some acne - and I have stopped consuming anything with Splenda in it, too. Last year I discovered diet soda that contained it, and I loved it. However, I began to also discover that my rosacea, acne, AND acid reflux issues all flared when I consumed it. I haven't had anything with splenda in it for at least two months, and wow, my face looks pretty good and along with cutting out fruit for acid reflux, my reflux is in pretty good shape.
I've been trying to encourage my mom that perhaps REAL sugar might be a tiniest bit healthier than Splenda (my mom like splenda on strawberries), and my grandmother, too, (who is Type II Diabetic) not to use Splenda. My mom says that unless my grandma's doctor says not to use Splenda specifically, she's not going to encourage to do otherwise.
