I don't have acne, but i had skin problem. It is all cleared now. I feel that you plan will be very good for you. I recommend for you to go on the fast thread of this board. Many seem to have miraculous result.

I didn't need to fast, i just quite dairy.
I had skin problem for about 8 years. It would get better and better as i would optimize my diet. Letting go coffee first, then white sugar, then white flours, then vegetarian, then organic food and finally raw vegan food.
I read that dairy is a major source of allergies and many skin problem.
A dermatologist told me that i had psoriasis or eczema, but i didn't go see him for that only to be test for allergies. Because i thought that my cats caused that at the time and i wasn't allergic to cat according to their test or anything except for rag weed.
So doing 100% raw food did the trick. I did some involuntary fast when i got very sick or injured my shoulder. I couldn't eat and would only live on e3live, green smoothies and very light raw food if i would have any. I lost so much weight that i was under weight, now i am back to normal.
So yes, i feel that those unpredicted fast did clear my skin condition for good.
I know that condition that manifest in our skin because our skin is an organ of elimination if our colon don't manage to do that, is that our colon need to be taking care of. I suspect that i had leaky guts because i had sever allergies that started to manifest the first year i went raw, so i started to take therapeutic enzyme (I ready they repair cells and leaky gut).
If you do a fast or feast, it will give a brake to your colon and digestive system which can lead to great healing. Read also about side effect and how to end a fast. This is why, i recommend to you that you visit that side of the board (fasting /juicing).
Best wishes, and i will be waiting for your wonderful result.

Raw angel mom: what therapeutic enzymes did you take?
For those with acne: Regular sunscreen mutates cells and totally clogs pores....so I have good news! I started seeing a skin specialist and she gave me like the perfect all natural skin protectant/moisturizer with SPF! It dries up oil (which we like to do with acne!) and it won't clog skin and it has hyaluronic acid (which our cells make naturally and need to stay vibrant). The ingredients are: grape seed extract, green tea, hyaluronic acid, montomorillonite clay, evening primrose, zinc oxide. Thats it!
Its called Sun Shield Plus by ClearChoice Dermasmart.
I know I love to hear about it when people finally find a good product, so I wanted to share :D
