Detoxing Acne

Can going through some sort of detox where you only eat fruits and vegtables clear up acne because you're taking away all the impurities?

you can, but keep in mind acne only gets worse before it gets better during detox.

Your body doesn't like something you're eating or putting on your skin. that's why we break out.

I suggest having your food allergies tested. Since I gave up gluten, I don't break out anymore.

When you detox the toxins are relased through your skin which causes you to break out. I find if you do a very slow detox you can handle the acne as it comes and decreases the chance of scaring. Make sure to wash, tone and continue to add creams to your face (oil free) to keep your skin nice. Also, change your pillow cases often as you dont want to be smushing bad stuff into your skins.

Take it from someone who knows... I have had 90% of my skin covered in acne and now I have zit free skin. Be consistant with washing, and cleaning and you'll be fine no matter what your body does.

What type of moisturizer should be used? I want it to have a lot of anti-oxidants but not make me break out!
