I do have this problem. I have hyper sensitive skin (as multiple doctors have told me) and eating sugar seems to add to the problem. If I change my diet/soap/detergent (basically everything) too much, I break out. It's really bad:(

I should've specified that I have rosacea, type 2 and 4 -- and lupus and some other autoimmune diseases... So, skin issues are present but this was interesting that 2 times I've had a "big" dessert in the past month have resulted in a fresh breakout!
I think my daughter does. She's trying to go wheat/gluten free now but may have to add sugar to the list. It's hard to know what causes it but probably the carbs leading to an insulin spike. There is evidence that cutting out wheat and large amounts of carbs may eliminate all acne-type skin problems since people groups who don't eat those types of foods are free of them. Birgit

Anybody else notice this? I don't "get" too much sugar unless I eat something well--not clean!
The last time I had something "bad" was a frozen custard. Had 3 big cyst spots come up. This weekend, I tried another gluten-free (was just diagnosed, so even though I normally only bake at holidays and for birthday, I've been baking all kinds of breads and things just to "learn" using bean flours?) recipe.
It was my first cookie one: its base is POWDERED SUGAR and it's gluten-free, flour-free, fat-free but did I mention SUGAR?
OMG! I have 6 new spots this morning (and I'm not PMSing) and YES I ate some of the cookies (ahem, about 10).
