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!
