    Acne is related to hormone production. Hormone production is a good thing though, you don't want to be trying to suppress it in some way. Just cleanse and moisturise (don't forget to moisturise) and that's the best you can do.

    Cleansing and moisturizing isn't enough for some people... if that doesn't work you'll have to rely on something stronger (like isotretinoin) or fix your diet as you've mentioned.

    Saw Palmetto and Primrose oil are just about the only natural things a male can take to regulate hormone levels.

    Also - how old are you? If you're 21 or under, you shouldn't worry about it unless it's moderate to severe acne... in which case go with isotretinoin.

    I'm convinced it is related to diet- which may also be related to hormones If you look at it that way

    I don't have a spot in sight if I eat carbs, meat etc. However- as soon as I eat something deep fried or covered is oil- I will get spots within a few hours.

    Same goes with my housemates- even though with them, it's when they eat too many sugary foods.

    I always struggled with acne and blackheads.. Right now I can go to the bathroom, squeeze my nose in the mirror, and watch every pour rip out a black head.. I have them on my back, chest, legs, etc.. it SUX. But I have personally found that when I control my weight and have lower bodyfat levels, my acne pretty much clears up and my blackheads are almost non-existent. I don't know whether it's the food changes, less fat on my body, less sweating/grease, etc.. But it's a fact.. everytime I'm 179 or lower, I'm clear.. any bigger, I breakout.

    When I'm on a bulk, I get acne like a king of bacon.

    When I'm on a cut, my face clears up.

    Is it 100% related to food? Maybe not I can't exactly prove anything, but I can say I think there is some kind of correlation between diet and acne.

    I also found researching acne is almost useless... there's so much contradicting information out there, and so many different causes of acne...

    I also hate people who think acne is all about hygiene.

    Evidence suggests there is no direct impact diet has on acne.. However, there are indirect causes.

    The fact is acne is a disease that cannot be cured or dealt with.. it can only be managed.. To help manage acne, diet might play an indirect role.

    I'm under 21!
    Its not bad but I'd attempt to fix it if I could through changing the diet

    Testosterone is linked with acne. Could be that on a cut your T-levels drop and affect acne.

    Literally just got back from the Derm. and she said that when you are lower bodyfat, your hormones/etc.. will change and can impact acne/etc.. Because when I am low bodyfat, I'm clean as a whistle. Makes sense I guess.... because it's not like my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    Interesting man
    I've always been low enough in terms of bodyfat, maybe if I get lower after my bulk it might help!
