Can paleo clear up acne?

by (505) Updated June 29, 2014 at 1:08 AM Created March 02, 2011 at 2:18 PM

It does seem whenever I eat bad foods I sometimes get an outbreak of acne. I think slowly maybe my acne is improving but I want to know if I can clear it up for good with Paleo or if there is any other stuff people know.

Absolutely. I used to have wretched skin (three prescription acne meds wretched); now I only break out after a non-optimal meal or when I'm under insane amounts of stress.

Because a lot of acne is related to stress and hormones, just eating paleo won't be enough; you need stress reduction and lots of sleep to help dial that last bit in.

I had very bad cystic acne for years and tried and abandoned all of the pharmaceuticals prescribed by the doc. What cleared mine up was Vitamin D supplements and almost 100% elimination of Industrial Oils and Sugar. I still drink heavy cream and eat butter almost daily, and have cheese occasionally. So in my case, Dairy was not the villain. But I can pretty much guarantee a break out if I eat meat fried in a restaurant oil, or eat a very high sugar dessert.

for acne look into acneeinstein.org, this man is amazing. I follow 99% of what he said, basically paleo and some supplements (you must read a lot!!!!) and am getting better. Also do not use make up. When I cut make up, all my red marks that usually fade for 6 months to a year started to fade for 3 to 4 weeks and my face cleared up. It did get worse before it got bette.r

It did not clear mine up but it helps. I echo the zinc and D3 and would put in a plug for niacinamide (topically or orally) as well. That is my holy trinity.

Primal, zinc and vitamin d supplements, very little cheese or yogurt (lots of cream and butter though) and my skin is finally clear.

The third book by Loren Cordain is called The Dietary Cure for Acne. I have not read it, but would imagine he recommends a diet similar to in his other two books. Maybe you should look into it.

I found that my skin was noticeably better after dropping dairy.
