yeah leave out dairy. also i find some veggie supplements are crap for my skin. flaxseed oil tablets (omega 3) breaks me out and also gives me really bad indigestion. i find ground flaxseeds on food better. alot of binders in vitamins are basically some kind of starch. if it gives you indigestion its probably this, though i dunno if thats what breaks my skin out as such.
however, low gi diet changed my skin dramatically, eczema/psoriasis/acne/that weird itching after sugar....its all dramatically reduced and i have more energy. anything majorly starchy like potatoes wreaks havoc over a week or so and gives me bad indigestion too.
low gi may not have desired effects if you still consume alot of caffeine. dunno if direct correlation but green tea (also has caffeine) makes me break out which is sad coz i love it its only thing i eat with caffeine in it so think it must be that...sad face...but with relatively clear skin

I'm a vegetarian, I take vitamins and supplements, don't eat refined sugar, exercise, stay out of the sun, and drink tons of water. I feel like I can't solve this problem!

Any ideas?
Like I've said in another post here: watch your hands. They're never clean enough to be on your face.

Small stuff can be easily treated with a benzoyl peroxide gel. See a dermatologist if you can't get that over the counter.

No, I use Toleriane Soin Protecteur Apaisant by La Roche Posay and since it's perfect for me, I haven't tried any other moisturizer in a long, long time.

Are you getting enough sleep?
I get pimples on my chin if I eat too much sugar, and I get more during that time of the month if my diet is bad. I think it's a combination of hormonal, diet, and rest.

Hello,

Quick question on milk...
I see in a comment "Cut down on dairy. Dairy is designed to take that cute calf and turn it into a 1500lb cow/bull in under a year. And it does a bloody good job of it. I have skimmed milk in my tea. That's about it these days. Yes, I've even cut back the cheese"

In a recent interview of Barbara Palvin, when they ask her advice for great skin she said she was drinking plenty of milk...

So what is the influence of dairy on milk and does the dose depends on people?

I am a boy (I don't apply much product) but I want to get nicer skin for summer hehe

^ I think you may get better results from investigating possibly incorporating more product, vs. relying on milk.

and YES...totally YMMV (your mileage may vary); for the majority of folks, cutting back on dairy helps their skin "issues". Plus, yes, there have been many discussions re: the overall reliance on dairy in our (humans') diet.

FWIW, not having dairy didn't make a lick of difference in my skin. I have yet to find what does work consistently.

If you have sensitive skin Bioderma is without a doubt a safe way to go. Out of moisturizers I keep using Sebium Hydra cream and Sensibio light for years now. While Sebium hydra is for oily, acne-prone weakened skin, which i use for my T-zone, it returns skin pliability and shine with nice calming effect, especially if you're expiriencing some redness. Also, I use Sensibio light intendend for normal to combination skin that happens to be really good make-up base as well (it's working excellent in addition to that Sensibio H2O), all reacting gentle and of course, maintains a well moisturized skin all day. In my opinion, reasonably priced in exchange for fine quality, I fairly recommend it.

Thanks for all the suggestions about my chin breaking out

I do avoid dairy- might have it once in awhile on the weekends, but hardly ever consume it.

I also get at least 8 hours of sleep or more every night.

I assume it's hormonal and there's nothing I can do about it. The only thing I've been trying lately that's seemed to work is using retin a on my chin every night.

^ I use to experience hormonal breakouts on my chin all the time until I started drinking spearmint tea every night. It has anti-androgenic properties so it should help with hormonal acne. I haven't had a breakout on my chin since. Of course it could be coincidence since my skin does tend to go through phases but I would suggest you try it since its something you can pick up at your local supermarket.

^ Liya, I would suggest trying the Konjac Sponge (the image leads to their site). It’s a 100% natural, antibacterial facial sponge that gently massages & exfoliates skin stimulating blood flow and new growth of skin cells. This one should help you get rid of the blackheads and outbreaks. Not to mention it's affordable.
