Fasting and Acne

Fasting is a great way to improve your skin. Intermittent fasting (eating for 8 hours/day, fasting for 16) and 24 hour fasts will both improve your skin. I recommend the 16/8 diet 6 days a week, with one 24 hour fast.

I’ve experimented with fasting myself, and found it to be nearly as effective as a ketogenic diet.

Fasting likely helps with acne because it reduces inflammation in the body, lowers blood sugar levels, and improve insulin sensitivity. It’s also a more natural way to live. We didn’t evolve to eat all day, every day.

If you’ve tried diet tweaks and failed to improve your skin, try fasting and a ketogenic diet.
