    Question diet pop = acne?

    I read somewhere online that Aspartame is a chemical to avoid for those of us who suffer from acne. I drink loads of diet pop and use equal on my coffee and drink all of those other diet drinks.

    Has anyone found that giving up drinking diet pop has made an improvment on their complexion?

    Splenda causes me to break out. I was on a Crystal Light binge for a while (it's sweetened with Splenda), and it caused some problems for me. So, I stopped drinking it and everything cleared up. It wasn't that bad of a break out, but enough to make me want to quit drinking the stuff.
    I don't know if diet drinks and artificial sweeteners directly cause acne or not; it probably varies from person to person just like everything else. You may want to quit drinking/eating things containing artificial sweeteners, etc and see if it helps, or at least cut back some. =)

    Splenda (sucralose) caused me to have severe cystic acne along with other problems like elevated liver enzymes and enlarged lymph nodes in my abdomen. I have to read the ingredients on everything I eat or drink now. Aspartame doesn't bother me.
