I know they say diet doesn't affect acne, but most people who have tried and tested this theiry will tell you it certainly does! How is your digestion? A lot of people have food intolerances, as I do. I discovered what digests well and what doesn't through elimination processes. It's tough to do. I started on the SCD diet and went from there. I've always had some acne, sometimes better, sometimes worse. Birth control helped but didn't cure, Proactive helped and then it worsened later, Benzoyl Peroxide I still use as a spot treatmeant
( has always helped ) but diet has seemed to help the most. I cut out as much gluten in my diet as possible. For some people the culprit could be dairy, or even sugar. Anyways, my skin is realllllly looking healthier and "glowing" now that I've changed my diet. Try it!! I also use Ivory soap now, instead of Dove, and only on my entire body and face after a workout, plus Cetephil moisturizer after. The rest of the time I just use it on certain parts, but I try to work out most days. I'm also 31 now so my hormones have likely settled down. Goodluck to everyone, I know how much acne sucks. My best advice is to stop using anything that is making it worse. I went for a little while without even washing my face just to get it to settle down. It did help. And yes, I went to bed with make up on then too. But I had to let it heal from trying to wash it with acne washes all the time that just made pimples bigger, redder and harder to cover up. So try that too...just use water in the shower for a bit.
