my story about overcoming acne naturally

hello!

i found this board because i cut my finger open.

anyways i was browsing the boards and thought i'd post my story about acne.

i used to have moderate acne (i thought it was severe but i've seen others so i know mine can't be that severe). i tried lots of things... washing more frequently, proactiv, natural soaps that supposedly help acne... none of that stuff worked for me. i didn't want to take medication and i didn't want to go on birth control because of the side effects and possible dangerous long term effects.

i then started changing my diet for other reasons not related to acne. i removed certain foods from my diet like milk and sugar, and added lots more vegetables and fruit into my diet. it took about a year or so of discovery but my acne is 100% gone (unless i start eating things that i eliminated).

i think acne can be eliminated simply by not eating milk products or excessive amounts of sugar. keep up your veggies and protein and good fats (no margarine or vegetable oil! use olive oil and coconut oil).

that's my story.
