Ok, so I’ve been suffering from quite severe acne for a almost 10 years now. I know my pic doesn’t look like it, but trust me on this, it’s not just something I’m saying. My back and face constantly breaks out and I’ve tried pretty much every single skincare product out there, including Proactiv, Clinique and even laser treatment aswell as Dead Sea Products. Let’s just say it’s cost my parents a small fortune and could probably have sent me halfway through college. LoL!
I did notice an improvement after going vegetarian and a more noticable improvement after I went vegan, but I’m still not satisfied. My condition is more than likely caused by me suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which I have also noticed has improved after going vegan. I hardly ever have attacks anymore and if I do it’s when I’ve had some really spicy food.
But… I went on a 15-day detox programme and I had great faith it would make my skin pretty much perfect but it didn’t. My bowels have never moved easier in my life on the other hand, but my skin is still not where I want it to be.
When I thought I had an overgrowth of Candida before I was diagnosed with IBS I went through a three month period where I didn’t TOUCH sugar in any form. Not even fruits I ate and I felt somewhat deprived so when I thought I was well again I went back to eating fruits, but then my skin jumped right back to being fugly.
I’m in quite desperate need of advice here. I don’t want to cut out fruit completely from my diet, I love it and would feel incredibl deprived if I was to live on a raw veg diet only. My boyfriend suffered from Eczema and Psoriasis and he’s been going to a acupunturist and says it’s helped him alot (We live in different countries atm)
Any advice, any experiences?
