Dear Patient

Your symptoms are suggestive of cystic acne which is a severe form of acne and it may not clear without using medications.

However, if you want to treat it without using money I suggest you begin by adopting the acne diet.

Acne Diet

The acne diet is composed of the following:

Eating low glycemic index foods

Foods with a high glycemic index (GI) cause blood glucose levels to rise rapidly. This results in the pancreas producing more insulin to control the blood glucose levels. Unfortunately, the increased insulin levels also stimulate the oil glands in the skin to produce more oil which can lead to acne breakouts.

Unfortunately, the increased insulin levels also stimulate the oil glands in the skin to produce more oil which can lead to acne breakouts.

Therefore avoid high GI foods like candy, white bread, and French fries.

Instead, eat more foods which have a low GI of less than 70 like whole grain bread, broccoli, spinach, apples, strawberries, and oranges.

Eating foods with omega 3 fatty acids

These essential fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and they can also regulate the skin’s oil production through a molecule known as leukotriene B4.

Foods that are good sources of omega 3 fatty acids include salmon and other oily fish, avocados and flaxseeds.

Avoiding dairy products

The acne diet also involves avoiding dairy products like milk since they are been linked to acne breakouts.

Adopting an Acne-Free Lifestyle

In addition to following an acne diet, you should also adopt an acne-free lifestyle by doing the following:

*Joining a smoking cessation program if you smoke cigarettes

*Cleaning your mobile phone with antiseptic wipes regularly

*Avoiding makeup until your acne clears. To learn more read How to Treat Acne at Home.
