Hi out there! I am a 34 year old female who has just passed the 90-day mark of vegetarianism. While I love how I feel on the inside, my skin is breaking out and looks horrible! I've always had beautiful, clean skin until now. Seems strange I am eating much healthier than I ever have, and this happens.

Wondering if anyone else encountered this. If so, any recommendations?

Is it limited to one area? I am just wondering if it could be allergy related....

Have you been eating a lot of soy or nuts all of a sudden? I heard that can be bad for your skin. Or have you been stressed out? Is your skin more oily?

^This talks about vitamins and minerals that can help or hinder acne problems, take a look and see if your diet lately has been lacking.

I normally suffer from acne myself, normally body acne, I would personally recommend St.Ives' to expholiate, the one they have particularly for acne is doing wonders for me ^_^
