There are so many different diets out there – vegan, keto, paleo, high fat, low carb, no fat, high carb, pescatarian, high starch, no sugar, no dairy, GAPS, Low-histamine, FODMAPS – how do you know which one is going to give you glowing, beautiful skin?
By now we all know that the proper diet is one of the most important things to achieve clear and ageless skin, but the information out there can be overwhelming and confusing.
When it comes to treating acne, the bottom line is that each person needs to find the diet that works best for their individual physiology.
There is not one diet that works for everyone.
How do I discover which diet works for me?
In my 7-Week Clear Skin Program I map out a basic diet that eliminates the top foods that aggravate acne and includes many of the foods that contribute to healthy, clear skin. Insulin and blood sugar levels are also normalized.
Then, resources are provided that help you discover what diet tweaks can be made for each individual to help them clear their skin for good.
- blood type can help determine whether or not a vegan or non-vegan diet is right for you
- the state of your digestion can help you decide if you may need a GAPS, FODMAPS or low-histamine diet
- your liver and gallbladder function will help you determine if you should include or eliminate fats from your diet
- certain foods can be eliminated from your diet if you suspect food sensitivities
The bottom line is that there is not a one-size-fits-all diet solution to healing acne. As with everything, it is individual.
Is finding the right diet the most important part of healing acne?
Finding the right diet is a critical part of the healing journey, but it goes beyond that. Blood sugar and insulin levels must be normalized, the liver must be supported and the gut needs to be healed. Managing stress is also a huge part of balancing the body and healing acne.
Once the body has re-balanced itself, the diet can change again. Certain foods that were once not tolerated can often be successfully re-introduced.
