Hi all, has anyone experienced getting bad skin (such as breakouts) on the diet?

Whenever i have done CD SS in the past, my skin was glowing and clear within a week but i am 2 weeks into my restart and my skin isn't looking very good.

I must admit that my skin does get abit worse in the winter but i would have thought with all the water we drink it would clear up and be glowing.

The only thing i am doing different this time is drinking slightly warm water and drinking green tea.

I am hoping that my skin will be glowing maybe a month into SS.

I would appreciate your thoughts and experiences though :) xx

Hiya Maybe... my skin (never great!) had some breakouts in the first two weeks of CD. I think it was getting rid of toxins? After that it really improved and has been clearer than it has in ages... hang on in there. I think you'll get the benefits soon!

I'm on day 3 & never have any problems with my skin but I've broken out all over my forehead!

I agree, I think it is just getting rid of the toxins and once they are out of your system you will start seeing good results. Don't worry, I am sure your skin will clear up very soon x

Thank you for your replies. I expected i would have a little breakout because of the toxins but its just not getting better. It must be the diet combined with the weather. I'll just have to keep on drinking more water and hope for the best. xx
