It's interesting that this article says acne can be affected by insulin spikes, but that the SparkPeople health A-Z article on acne says "Acne is not related to diet or poor hygiene." Are there references for the statement in this article that it is affected by insulin spikes?
In the last 30 days my husband and I have paid more attention to drinking half our body weight in ounces of ionized alkaline water. We have progressed from 7.0 to 9.0. I have found that hydrating our bodies has kept us from snacking/grazing thru out the day. We are loosing weight slowly without any additional changes. Who imagened that such a simple change could make such a huge benefit? I have been complimented on how much more healthy I look. Simple steps are making great changes for us both.

If I experience leg cramps during exercise, is it true I'm not getting enough magnesium and/or potassium?? I take a good multivitamin and eat a healthy/nutritious diet.
I find that eating a bit of avocado / guacamole every day or every other day literally makes a visible difference in a few days if not instantly. (Maybe not quite so much in the depths of winter when the skin probably has a bit too much to cope with.) I've heard good things about eating macadamia nuts too for dry skin, but I've never monitored it.
(You'd think I'd have a permanent store of guacamole in my fridge, really. But no, I'm lazy.)
Once, I tried to limit my food intake that too oily or deep fried food. It really worked to reduce getting acne, even when during my monthly period! But I messed my effort by eating local junk food this month that a bit oily, had lots of ground nuts and my face getting worse, huhu.
