Are acne and gluten intolerance related?

Question by Johnny K: Are acne and gluten intolerance related?
I take pretty good care of my face by washing it, not touching it, and stuff. But I still have acne. I have tried stuff like putting lemon and toothpaste on it, but its stubborn. I’m pretty frustrated. But then I heard somewhere that gluten intolerance and acne are related. I have the celiac gene and gluten intolerance, but I still eat wheat. Would me stop eating wheat help my acne go away?

Yes the two things are related. Your skin is an organ its job is to detoxify your body, and protect your insides, and it has plenty of jobs but a large part of it is to detoxify.

When you load your body with toxins your skin releases them, and you get zits, oily poors theory of acne isnt true, you need a healthy diet.

Also avoid all dairy products, unles of course you get raw organic milk froma farm.

Hi yes before I was diagnosed with gluten intolerant my skin would break out. After eradicating the culprit foods that caused it your skin then starts to clear up. Eat healthy and everything fresh. Drink plenty of fresh water and do not use creams on your face. A bit of time and perseverance then your skin will clear up.

Celiac husband with body acne: could GF shampoos and soaps be the answer?

Question by Derp: Celiac husband with body acne: could GF shampoos and soaps be the answer?
Hubby is on a gluten-free diet and uses Proactiv and has noticed a slight change in his body acne. Could using gluten-free shampoo, conditioner, and body wash finally rid him of this acne?
We’re TTC – accutane is out of the question.

You don’t say if your husband just started the gluten-free diet or how long he has been on it. External gluten usually doesn’t have an affect on a celiac but if he has dermititis herpetiformis which is also a gluten intolerance, his skin could be reacting to the gluten.

If he just started the gluten-free diet, it could be his body getting better and the skin changing as part of that. If he is just starting out, he may want to try a gluten free multivitamin, an omega 3-6-9 capsules and possibly a vitamin D3 capsule if you live in the northern areas and/or he doesn’t get outside much in the daylight.

And good luck on TTC.

Gluten and Acne

Gluten is such a pain in the neck to many people who are allergic to or are intolerant of it. It is known to cause inflammation in the stomach lining to some, but to some, it causes acne to get worse.

Gluten-containing foods are pizza, pasta, breads, pastries, baked goods, and the long list goes on. To an average person, a day wouldn’t pass without eating something that contains gluten.

If you have experienced having acne that worsens as you eat these kinds of food, then you better stay away from them for a while. Try limiting your intake of gluten for about a week or two. Then observe daily if your face is starting to clear up. If it is, from that point, you should be opting for low-gluten diet. But if nothing has changed with your skin, then gluten probably has nothing to do about your acne.

Truth be told, one of the best ways to keep and maintain a healthy skin and prevent acne is to eat healthy. Also, you should be exercising and drinking lots of water.

Since I have mentioned eating healthily, you should be lowering your intake of fatty food. Fat causes increase in sebum production, thus, causing acne. We all need to have fats in our diet, but go for saturated fats found in nuts, olives, and avocado. Unsaturated fats are found in animal products and processed foods, and often called as the bad cholesterol.

If you stay away from gluten, you not only rid yourself of all the troubles it causes your stomach, but your skin as well.

Eating healthy is always good for your body in general. Be religious with your healthy diet and you are sure to see improvements in your skin!
