Acne is all the rage. It used to be just something teenagers suffered from and then outgrew. Not anymore. Acne, as well as several other skin disorders, is becoming increasingly common,but fewer people are aware that poor diet is the leading cause of acne.
Clearing up skin is really quite easy if you understand the link between acne and diet. However, sticking with a typical Western diet of vegetable oils with a sugar load of Biblical proportions makes the improvement of acne a near impossibility.? Acne, for the most part, is a disorder of fat metabolism, a product of poor digestion, and a disequilibrium of the body’s hormones (which is why young teenagers get it more frequently as their hormones enter a period of upheaval).
If anything, acne is but a barometer of serious metabolic chaos and poor overall health. The recipe for overcoming metabolic chaos and poor overall health is of course the primary focus of this site. As the underlying conditions leading to several forms of poor skin improve, so does the clarity and softness of the skin.? It happens quickly and reliably.

What about acne clearing up on lowcarb paleo, but returns on more of a high carb diet? I get it from ovulation to the stadrt of menstruation every month since I started more carbs and more calories. Why? I feel better in many other ways.
I noticed my acne virtually disappears when I eat a vegetable, fruit based, anti-inflammatory type diet, but then reappear ten fold (lots of inflammation, mainly acne on back and shoulders) during RARFing. It’s like I can either feel good, but have terrible acne and inflammation, or I can be clear while feeling anxious and irritable, among other odd health related malfunctions.
I mean, we all gravitate eventually towards food that we feel the best eating. There’s no shame in that. I just don’t like to see people be too quick to restrict. It’s typical during refeeding to get massive blooms of acne, but if you see a lot of positive signs along with that, it’s best to keep pressing through until the acne starts to clear, which is also quite common. Obviously the best outcome is to eat everything and not have acne or other forms of malaise triggered. That’s true health. Some can get there, other cannot. But it’s worth a try I think before retreating to a monkey diet. I do love me some monkey food though!
