Severe acne: Please see a Dermatologist!Get a more detailed answer ›
refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy.

Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Hello! What should I eat to cure pimples,acne and skin problems Like those..? What should I include and what should be avoided in my daily diet 4 dat?
Wrong question: Your question is really about how to control acne. Diet is not the answer except that you are overweight and may have PCOS. We need to know more about you and evaluate your type of acne. PCOS is likely to improve with weight reduction. You probably need spironolactone with or without a low androgen birth control pill. See a dermatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Avoid diet hormones: The connections between diet & acne are controversial. The strongest associations in the scientific literature are with cow's milk - thought to be from hormones. Consider choosing organic (or no hormones used) milk and meat products. (most us meat made with hormones) otherwise, no strong evidence that fatty foods or chocolate influence acne. Bon appetit! and track yourself. Each of us different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Acne/diet: Sometimes. I have found that dieting can increase acne. Any stress to your system, mental or physical, can cause acne, and dieting is stressful to your body. The body has to work harder to burn fat, then to take in calories from the outside. This creates more stress to the body, and, hence, more of a possibility of a break-out. ...Read more
Diet isn't answer: Acne is a non-lifestyle-related, chronic disease that must be managed until it self-cures. You may try eliminating dairy, but you won't clear you acne until you use evidence-based medication. If topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment. ...Read more
Does dairy really cause or worsen acne? Ive never noticed my teen acne improve with diet change (tried for 3 months) but still curious..
Probably not!: Science still does not know whether diet and acne are related, but evidence is starting to trickle in. Based on what we are seeing in clinical research, it seems prudent to eat a relatively low-glycemic diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables and omega-3 fats and to perhaps supplement with 30mg of zinc gluconate per day. However, due to our modern diets and Western style of living, achieving sustainable relief of acne from changes in diet alone remains an elusive goal. No matter what anti-acne diet you embark upon, while you may see a short-term reduction in acne while your body loses weight, symptoms are likely to return as your weight levels off. If your goal is to achieve completely clear skin, your time is likely much better spent effectively treating your skin than chasing any theoretical, yet unproven, diet. ...Read more
Keep a diary: Hormonal acne is often associated with acne lesions along the jawline & sides of face, hormonal changes (e.g. Menstrual cycle, abnormal periods, etc), & sometimes unwanted hair growth. Few dietary causes of acne are substantiated by research studies. Dairy is one of the few research-supported causes of acne. Keep a diary of your breakouts, menstrual cycle, & diet. Consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Eliminating sugar-sweet stuff isn't a bad idea, but it's not gonig to touch your acne and neither will any other 'pop' idea. Get down and treat it scientifically. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for additional prescription-strength rx. ...Read more
Of course it's not: Acne is not lifestyle or hygiene related, and diet generally has little impact. Actually, food choices have very little to do with most illness in spite of the stuff you read on the internet. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. ...Read more
Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide, in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate. If you're not clear in two weeks, phone your physician for something to add. ...Read more
Not usually: You may consult this site for home care for acne: http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/acne/acne-vulgaris-home-treatment For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
Is there anything on my diet that causes baby acne? Is there anything I can do to improve its appearance?
What should be my diet if i have acne like what should i cut out of my diet to improve my skin like dairy ?
Does diet affect acne? No over-the-counter medications work for me, so should I start eating very healthy? I'm a teen.
Acne & Diet: Many foods can aggravate acne. The most common culprits, in my observations, are nuts and peanut butter, dairy products (excess cheese and milk), sugars and high glycemic index foods (chocolate). So, no snickers bars; no reese's cups; no gallons of milk, cut down on cheese. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clean: The best answer is to have a clean diet....More fresh fruits and vegetables, lean grass fed beef, non hormone chicken etc. Avoiding processed foods, artificial sweeteners, sodas, are all ways to improve skin. Sometimes it cannot be completely avoided if there is a strong family history. I also get great results with chinese medicine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not basis of Rx: You'd get the idea from reading the internet that food choices are the key in treating disease. This is a mistake, you're mostly reading fantasy and subscientific observations, and a waste of everybody's time. A scientific physician can clear acne using medications and you have a right (and a duty, if you're responsible for a teen with acne) to get it treated effectively. ...Read more
War on acne! ruled out environment and diet, working on stress. How can I heal my skin from the inside out?
All is fair in...: ... Love and war. Somebody has done you a terrible disservice. It is not a diet, stress, environment, or emotionally-based disease. There is nothing "spiritual" about believing untruths. If you really want to be rid of your acne -- a chronic, serious, primarily genetic disease -- you'll get evidence-based treatment in cooperation with a competent, reality-focused physician. ...Read more
Ive been getting acne like cray, my diet is clean, had hormone test it was norm, what else could be causing such problem?
Genetics and hormone: What is your menstrual and pregnancy history? Family history? Meds? Supplements? Birth control? Some birth control hormones cause acne in genetically predisposed women. Adult women with acne usually respond best to oral SPIRONOLACTONE which counters androgenic [male-type] hormones. Most of these women have normal blood tests. They respond this way to hormones which cause no acne in other women. ...Read more
What is your honest medical opinion on diet and acne? Is there a correlation? Do you think you should avoid certain foods?
I know its not the answer but in your professional opinion would someone see at least mild resolution of acne with diet changes?
I started using facial wash for my type of skin which is combination/oily to control acne but more acne broke out& I didn't change anything in my diet?
See below: You may consult this site for home care for acne: http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/acne/acne-vulgaris-home-treatment For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Of course not: No fad diet will have much effect. Generally, you'll do well to avoid anybody who's telling you about "detoxification" or "removing poisons"; if you're scientifically literate you'll recognize these are all hucksters. Why not do yourself a favor and get with your physician; all acne's fairly easy to manage nowadays. Good luck. ...Read more
