[QUOTE=scoligirl;2750711]As nice as that sounds, as well as all of the hype, sugars do not actually cause you to break out. Like the myth that eating chocolate cause acne.[/QUOTE]

Sugar/glucose/insulin can cause acne in so many ways. From stimulating the hormones that stimulate oil production to causing inflammation to overloading the liver to feeding bacteria and candida.

This is why there have been so many people posting how their skin was cleared by diets such as atkins and other low carb diets or their own custom plans which eliminated both simple sugars and whatever food intolerences they might have. And are never heard from here again because their skin is clear. I'm still here because I read several other boards. And my skin is 100% clear, for the first time in 30 years, from low sugar, more fiber and protein diet and a few supplements.

It's not a myth. And it's not just sugars. Many people can have a problem processing hydrogenated or trans fats, grains and other inflammatory foods, gluten etc. Do a search. I've just been reading through some old threads and so wish I could respond to the discussions to thank those people. But they are a year or more old and they aren't around now.

None of the prescriptions or topicals ever prescribed to me ever caused any noticable improvement. And those include all kinds of antibiotics and 2 courses of accutane.

I just wanted to say one thing and that is I really wish antibiotics were not prescribed for acne anymore. It just really is not a long term solution at all and has potentially more risks than any kind of reward. After a while it just seems like antibiotics will hurt you more than help.
