So I've been cutting out dairy for a while to see if my acne would clear up... and it hasn't - My skin has actually gotten worse.

Here is what my skin looked like a month ago and now
*My skin type is very combination and I often get those really deep in the skin type acne

My skin has NEVER been this bad, even in my teens!

I'm desperate to find SOMETHING I can do to make it better. I cant use those over the counter acne products because they really dry out my skin, and make it even more irritated. I'm convinced it's something I'm consuming - I just don't know what!

Anyone have any advise or a book that touches on this topic? I've seen some on Amazon but not sure which one is legit - you know? lol

note: I may look like I don't have acne at all in my new hair cut picture on my profile. That's because I'm wearing makeup and I know how to cover up acne. Also good lighting is a great tool to use as well.

    My skin breaks out like that from sugar (including if I'm eating a whole lot of fruit), or if I'm getting sick and fighting an infection.

So maybe try more vegs and less fruit?

(I used Noxema as a teen and loved it - switched to Clinique in my 20s, and loved that. They have a serious zit zapper in a little tube, and it works great.)

    Here's an old fashioned tip and doesn't dry your skin out but it always helped my skin when I was younger and had acne. Noxema face cream it makes your skin feel radient and I think it works so give it a try and let me know if it worked at all.It doesn't work instantly you have to use it twice a day for 2 weeks to give it a fair trial.
