Hi! I have skin prone to breakouts,which leave acne and pimple scars.. What can I possibly eat to get glowing skin? I am vegetarian & No eggs. Thanks!
A dermatologist: which is a skin doctor, is a the best person to see for this. Beyond that, consider applying Vitamin E oil directly on the skin to help w/scars and adding good oil to your diet to lubricate the skin, e.g., coconut oil, olive oil. Avoid transfats. Vegetarians can reach for junk food easily. Please don't. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Acne scar: Me too. If you can actually "get rid of " acne scars with some lemon and eggs, please let us know. That would make all the LASERs useless.

Allergy : Could have an allergy to something you're eating.... Consider getting allergy tested and desensitized if necessary. ...Read more
No: The role of diet in causing acne seems to be minor; the best-attested link isn't to chocolate but to dairy and even this seems only modest. If you're prone to pimples, you can generally keep them at bay with daily topical benzoyl peroxide. Your physician can also help if this isn't sufficient. ...Read more

I go to gym. I eat eggs 10 boiled full with yolks and rice too. I have extreme oily skin and blackheads never stop! no matter what. Help!
Hi! Some people say that eating eggs makes ur body temp high which increases pimples. Is it true? If yes, is it the egg yolk or the egg whites fault?
That's baloney: Acne is unrelated to diet, lifestyle, or body temperature. You're a grown woman, Zuleika, and you owe it to yourself both to be discerning (as you are) and to manage your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add prescription-strength Rx. ...Read more

How to prevent black spots and pimples on face? Does eating 6 eggs in a day is result of pimples and black spots?
Scientific Rx: Sounds like common acne. Forget everything folks say about diet and acne. With many blackheads, your physician may start you on a retinoic acid derivative, perhaps also with topical Clindamycin and maybe also benzoyl peroxide. There are stronger remedies available if these don't work well. Good luck. ...Read more
Why do i get pimples after eating egg, nuts and dairy and fish? I'm 21 year old and i get pimples very quick after eating those types of food...
See below: Acne results from oil overproduction (often due to hormones), clogged pores, p acnes bacteria, & resultant inflammation from your immune system recognizing infection. Effective acne treatments target these causes: benzoyl peroxide & antibiotics kill bacteria, retinoids decrease oil, salicyclic acid & retinoids unclog pores, oral contraceptives target hormones. ...Read more
Various causes: Acne is based in hair follicles. Secretion of oil glands, dead skin cells and a bacteria( proprionobacterium acnes) within a hair follicle trigger a cascade of signals in your body that leads to inflammation: ie. The red bumps and pus bumps of acne. Hormone levels and stress can contribute to acne and possibly dairy, but greasy foods and chocolate have not been proven to make acne worse. ...Read more
Hormones, diet?: Androgens ("male hormones" such as testosterone) are clearly implicated in causing acne. There is good circumstantial evidence that high glycemic index diet plays a role, too. Hunter/gatherer people rarely have problems with acne until adopting high glycemic index "western" diets. Hormones in dairy may be another source. ...Read more
Hormones: Despite pop claims, cleanliness, diet, and fitness have little real impact. Around puberty, hormones thicken the outermost layer of the skin, enlarge the sebaceous glands, and invite the acne bacteria to live and cause trouble there. All acne can be controlled nowadays; one possibility for an 18 year old lady is the oral contraceptive pill if you can take and want it. ...Read more
Mostly no: Smoking generally does not affect acne, though it does cause early aging. However, there is some controversy, as there is in much of medicine. There is some research that shows smokers have less acne than nonsmokers (http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/16645586), and some that shows worsening of a certain type of acne in adults who smoke (not teens) (http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/20619486). ...Read more
No: Rosacea and acne are different disorders. Acne is a follicular disease characterized by increase oil gland production, colonization of p.Acnes bacteria, resulting in pustules and white or black heads. Rosacea is not follicle based, and is associated with increased demodex (mite) colonization, triggered by sun, heat, alcohol, caffiene, etc... One can have both conditions at the same time. ...Read more
