I’ve been struggling with acne since a very long long time. It just happened over night, one day I had clear skin and then next pizza face!
It was hard dealing with something when you never knew the reason why its happening. You see I was a vegetarian and ate fairly healthy. I tried everything from natural herbal remedies, to hard core acne medsthat has scary side effects such as liver and kidney failure -keep in mind I had severe acne and never taken any medication without Doctor’s approval.
I was on accutane for months on and off, as well as antibiotics. Yes, my skin would clear up for a while but the acne always came back.
I dealt with this for 7 year.
So, about a year ago I started noticing some spawns of satan showing up on my face again. By this point I’m already fed up, I was done. So I went to doctor Google and started looking for anything that might explain why I keep getting acne outbreaks.
After reading articles about gluten being the reason for acne, to dairy intolerance, to an “it was cancer not a rash” I read an article about how veganism and vegetarianism can cause acne to some people.
They talked about something to do with fats and proteins break downs and how the body deals with it…it got too scientific for me, but it struck a cord. I never made the connection of me being vegetarian and me having acne happened to be at the same time.
I asked my Doctor about it and he confirmed it!
Of course being a narcissistic human I started eating meat again for the sake of my face, and my skin has never looked better.
Moral of the story is:
Don’t do anything without consulting your doctor. Also its never too soon to botox prevention is key
And most importantly don’t hate yourself because your skin is being a annoying, just love yourself and keep on rocking on.
