Acne/Gluten elimination diet – how long?

Laura Asked: Acne/Gluten elimination diet – how long?

I’ve just went off the pill five months ago (was using it for acne for three years) and have had terrible acne since.. no surprise.

I’ve been avoiding gluten for about 6 days now to see if that was the underlying reason for my skin problems

should my acne have improved by now?

I think i haven’t been 100% gluten free.. i had some soy sauce the other day etc

Gluten does not cause acne. 

If you were using the pill to control acne that could be the source. Menstruation causing increased levels of androgen, which stimulates the skins oil glands, maybe the source.

Talk to your doctor for options.
