I always thought that it was a myth that foods can not cause acne??
I kinda went on a sort of diet for no reason. Anyways, for abot 2 to 3 weeks I didn't eat any junk food or sweets or fried foods and my skin was so clear people were actually starting to notice! But then I had a really bad craving and started eating junk food and sweets and fried foods again and my blemishes came back!I have read the reports that now state food is not a factor as far as acne is concerned.
I am way past the acne age. Actually I am also past the hormonal blemish problem, but I have extremely sensitive skin. Most of my sensitivities show up on my face. I do know this. If I eat more than my fair share of chocolate, it shows up on my face in a day and 1/2. So I think that food can be a factor if you have those specific sensitivities.
True, true, true. Do you know what you're talking about or what! ahaha! Eliminate regularly! I sure do... ahem. I'm picky about what I eat and I don't really like fast-food, some red meats, or pork. The smell of pork sometimes actually makes me sick -literally- and my mom being what she is, cooks it every morning smelling up the whole *******. Salad is so hard for me to eat for some reason. My problem is almost anything sweet and junk food, oh and I'm a butter girl.Briefly:
The skin is the body's largest organ. It's also part of the Excretory System, the system of an organism's body that performs the function of excretion, the bodily process of discharging wastes. The skin sweats to do this.
Excretory system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Having made that brief statement, I've found that a healthy diet, plenty of water, and ensuring you "eliminate"regularly is helpful to maintaining healthy looking skin. If not those toxins (sitting in your system)may try to escape though your pores and often show up as zits.
From my personal experience you can avoid breakouts, especially around that time of the month by being careful about what you eat. Minimize your consumption of foods that are over-processed, by avoiding fast-food joints, red meats and pork, as they ?sit? in your system (decomposing) longer. Salads are your friend.
21-days is the magic number, usually it takes that long to see improvements in the skin. Try eating lighter meals and easily digestible foods (fresh) more often. After you achieve desired results, slowly introduce your favorites/regular meals back to your diet, the ?flare-up? triggers will be easily identified. ** For me it was Pork and the Big-azz Texas burgers I often had for lunch)
It used to be horrible when I was younger. I would react in like 15 min within eating anything dairy. its not as bad now but I still try to stay away from dairy foods which is very hard!ummm yeah it does. same with me, lol but more than slightly lactose intolerant!
A friend of mine was lactose intolerant but he was on some medication and kept eating milk stuff. Now he doesnt need the medication anymore. So I guess its not a permanent problem.i read an article about how if you eat a yogurt or something with lactose in it regularly, everyday, within a year you should no longer be intolerant. thats too hard for me. and besides the only time i could do it would be at night before i go to sleep HA ha.
