One of the surest and best tools to fight cystic acne is to address the gut-skin connection with the use of probiotics through food, supplements and even skin care. Way back in 1961, a case report found that out of 300 acne patients given a probiotic, 80 percent had clinical improvement. (2) The idea of probiotics for skin health isn’t new, but I’m happy to say it’s getting more attention in recent years. So before you resort to picking at your skin or using topical or oral remedies, read on to learn how you can naturally treat your cystic acne and have clear skin once again.
Low-fiber, Highly Processed Foods: Foods that are low in fiber and which are highly processed can have a negative impact on your health and skin.

There’s evidence that eating a low glycemic diet, meaning one that doesn’t include lots of processed grains/flour products and added sugar, can help prevent acne. Glycemic index measures how quickly foods raise blood sugar. Processed and refined foods, like those common in the Western diet, are high-glycemic, while meats and whole plant foods are low on the glycemic scale. Glycemic load is a measure of glycemic index times carbohydrates minus fiber. Most of the time, refined and processed food will have a high glycemic index AND high glycemic load, while certain vegetables will have a higher glycemic index, but very low glycemic load on the body.
While heat may be a breeding ground for bacteria, sweating is a great way to help open and clean out your pores!! The reason some people falsely believe that sweating in something like Hot Yoga is bad for your skin is because they make the mistake of not washing their face immediately after! The dried sweat will clog your pores and make any skin problems you have worse! While I don’t doubt that your friend caught something from her hot yoga class, that is not from the hot yoga itself! It’s from the lack of cleaning done by the establishment after each session!! So weather it is hot yoga or just going for a run, sweating is great for your skin!! Just remember to wash it all away once your exercise is done!
