Hello. I am re-starting Keto and am having an acne outbreak. I re-started on Monday but I ate a LOT of junk food on Sunday (tons of cheese, nuts, and chocolate chip cookies). I am lactose intolerant but to a lesser degree. I have never broken out into acne this bad since pre birth control. I mention birth control because I forgot to take my birth control on the third day and fourth day but I took it as soon as I remembered on the fourth day (ladies, you will understand what I’m talking about). In short, I don’t know if it’s the junk food, keto diet, or missed birth control pills that is causing my acne. Not sure if the sudden increase in fat has caused me to get acne.
5’2" 125 lbs (trying to get to my normal 105)
Breakfast: bullet proof coffee with MCT chocolate from Perfect Keto, cashew milk, and 2 TBSP or heavy cream.
Lunch: meatball with salad
Dinner: scrambled eggs with cheese and spinach. 2 slices of bacon on the side.
I thought it was the dairy that was causing my acne so I cut most dairy out (ESP CHEESE) but I am still having acne. Then again, today is day 3 of re-starting my keto.
Asking for help on why I am suddenly breaking out. I rarely like once a year get acne and it’s one pimple MAX. But I am having small pimples around my eyes/eyebrows/cheeks
