When I started btd I noticed that my pores were getting clogged really badly, and I figured out it was the chocolate...but even then after stopping that my pores were still gettingmore clogged than usual..you know when you put on foundation and your pores seem to "stick out"? Anyhow, I went and bought the Olay massager/cleanser thingy and it works amazingly. I have xero clogged pores (i.e. blackheads) and my skin looks really glowy. I used the little sample face wash that comes with it but after it was done decided to keep using my natural scrub from Sprouts with it, it works great. I think right now that you are detoxing, keeping your pores clean is the best way to go (I detox mainly through my skin too).

This also might be 100% due to detox, and not due to anything extra or lacking in your current diet. You may have toxins stored in your body fat- when you burn up that fat, those toxins get released into your body, and many of them get detoxed through the skin. This often leads to acne.
I'm dealing with something similar. I ate quite a few avoids around the time my father died (6 weeks ago) and had horrible acne that week. It cleared up when I stopped eating avoids but didn't worry about portion control. Now that I'm back on track with eating and exercising, I'm slimming down and the acne has come back.

It could have to do with your age. My acne was out of control past 30 & went on BCP. But, I did not ever get whole picture. If it is linked to your period it is hormonal & you'll need to do some detective work to figure out why your hormones are off. If you are over 35 or 40 its almost certainly hormonal.

I think mine acne is caused by tomatoes, but i have to confirm this... It takes 4 days to get better on tomato abstinence... But it also could be chilli since i mix tomato sauce with chill sauce for food.
