My Before & After's - Acne
I just wanted to show what's possible by eating raw, with a before and after of my face... back when I was on the birth control pill and had horrible acne, to now... where I get very few breakouts!! :)
You can read my full story at http://rawfoodswitch.com and I'd love to connect with you on Facebook too!
Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like to share your own raw acne before and after photos. I'd love to see them. :)

Wow, wow and wow!
Wow! your skin looks beautiful! Are you wearing any cover-up/make-up on your face? Are there any certain foods/nutrients that really helped clear the acne?
I hope you don't mind the questions and thank you for sharing!
you are glowing :)

Questions about your transition
I have been very high raw for 3 months now. (The non-raw food that I eat is 100% vegan, and I try to make sure it is mostly vegatables, and not breads, etc...) I am hoping that the change in eating habits will improve my skin and greatly decrease my pain in menstrual cramps. Initially, I thought that my skin was improving - I was able to go from covering my face every night with benzoil peroxide to only having to do that once every 1 or 2 weeks. But, this past week, my face exploded with acne, worse than it ever was while I was eating SAD. Needless to say, I find this extremely discouraging. Not to mention, previously my acne never scabbed over before, and now it is scabbing over, leaving me scared that I will now have scarring, which I never had before.
So, how long did it take to get about a 70% improvement in your skin? How long for it to become completely clear? I am willing to be patient, but it seems that something may really be wrong if my skin got much worse, as it did.
I am not eating many cucumbers, but I am eating a TON of leafy green vegetables, along with many fruits and minimizing my nut/seed intake.
Are you still taking birth control pills?
And congratulations, you really do look great! Two days ago, my husband and I started raw and I hope I will have promising results like yours. I don't have acne but I have these huge pores and once in a while I get white/black heads here and there.
Thank you for these photos. It's really inspiring to see before-and-after photos such as these.
Wow your skin looks amazing!
I've just joined this website and was looking for some inspiration!
I started eating raw 3 weeks ago and my skin is at it's worst ever right now!
At first i thought it could be detoxing, but now I'm not sure if i'm eating far too much fruit! Any info would be great :)
Quite the transformation!
And I must say, you look quite stunning.
That is amazing. I have suffered from hormonal cystic acne for years and years. I am hoping that eating raw will help with my acne as well. I'm not expecting a miracle but some improvements would be lovely.
Thanks for posting this.

WOW, you look gorgeous! Your skin is just ... so lovely.
Irrelevant but you remind me a lot of Tina Fey (not just the glasses)!
