Acne That Sticks Around...

ok let me start off by saying that I am not a diva in any shape or form, no matter the sound of this post.  I just want to lay it all out  :P  I am thankful to never have had terrible acne so far in my life, but when I do get a few pimples, they just don't want to leave.  Like a visitor that overstays its welcome :rolleyes: the follicle gets inflamed, and stays inflamed for MONTHS.  I use on the spot treatment, but it doesn't make a difference.  I'm often told I have a porcelain doll face, and the paleness to match haha, but then I've got these pesky red spots.  Cover up helps, but doesn't make them disappear.  I feel stupid going to a dermatologist because it's not severe by any standards, but I can't get them to go away.  any ideas?

I'm the same, I don't have bad skin. It is usually very clear, but I break out pretty bad from time to time, and it seems like it takes forever to go away. I find I break out when I eat dairy most often, and that my skin is super easy to control by the way I eat. I don't eat sugar unless natural, any kind of grain or dairy. I know this sounds impossible but it's the only thing that keeps my healthy and clear. I'm 17 and its very hard for me, but the benefits out way the risks. If you wanted a different way, try the clarisonic. It's a bit pricy for a face washing device, but the daily exfoliation really helps your skin stay clear, and glowey all the time. I have one and it was worth every penny.

Hi Caroline,

 

thanks for the ideas!  Sugar is my downfall.  chocolate gives me that kick of energy, but I feel better when I just eat fruit.  Currently, I am not eating dairy and gluten.  I have thought about stopping grains, but I am only two months into gluten-free/df, and I want to give it a solid three month try before making any more big changes.  I am definitely going to keep your suggestions in mind when I reevaluate next month.  Hope you're having a good weekend!

I found my skin improved going gluten-free - all over my body. Mysterious itches, lumps, bumps, red spots I'd had all my life - gone. Wasn't immediate but it happened.

My skin does not appreciate lots of chemicals and I do better with less. I also need something to speed up surface shedding, or I break out. I use Origins Brighter by Nature pads every other day. I also need lots of moisture to stay in my skin, so I use Devita Hyaluronic Serugel daily. For blemishes I use Desert Essence Blemish Touch Stick.

Those products are all gluten-free as far as I can tell, but the manufacturers do not test them or guarantee they are gluten-free so ALWAYS read the labels before you purchase each time.

For cleansing I use....get ready....superfine bakers sugar as a scrub and MyChelle cleansers. MyChelle is a gluten-free line. I use Andalou moisturizers, again, a gluten-free line.

Overall, the less I do the less I break out. I do have to exfoliate regularly, though or I will break out for sure. I have (had, I'm getting older :) ) that perfect porcelain skin, too.

(Sorry my phone messed up) but I started to improve so much faster! And my skin cleared right up. And yeah sugar is hard to give up, but if you use fruit and honey as sweeteners in baking and stuff it's delicious, and still good for you. I like to cook paleo recipes for dessert because there grain and refined sugar free. And sooo yummy!

    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

    • Starting out
      Hi, as a Noob, I am a little intimidated by what may come to be a major change in my eating habits. My middle has been uncomfortable for a couple of years and I got no help or input from my GP so I went to a GI Dr who checked me throughly and found nothing out of sorts other than some minor irritation in my esophogus and prescribed a medication. My stomach/mid section still is uncomfortable and really disturbingly big. The GP finally suggested that I try being gluten free for 6 weeks to see if it made a difference. I have no other symptoms of gluten intolerance, as far I know. I've had anxiety issues longer than the stomach discomfort but I am having depression and lethargy so I guess I will try to rule this out. My question is, how strict does this have to be in order to ascertain that there is a correlation between my discomfort and possible gluten allergy? How stringent is the cross contamination issue, like using a toaster oven and other daily food prep precautions. Right now, eating like this for 6 weeks feels like 6 years. But if I start to feel better in a few weeks, I guess I'll make the transistion permanently, and I'd really like my gut to be normal looking, or at least not 7 months pregnant.  Female, nearly 70, 5'8", overweight at 170 lbs.  Thanks.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
