Balance diet - skin care
I am 34 years of age and still have blemishes on my face, on many occasions I will still get yellow heads that pop up. I am single and follow a really unbalanced diet. In fact I have no idea what a balanced diet for me would be. I have only recently started using moisturiser, and this seems to be making a slight difference. I never used it before because I used to think my skin was too oily. I don't know if too much milk and dairy products could be affecting my skin or even still hormones at my age?

Please help...

Dear BBB
Yes, hormones at any age can cause excess oil production in the skin, pimples. blackheads and acne. You need to consult a Dermatologist to correct this hormone imbalance. Also click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and read the articles on 'Balanced Diets'. There is NO dietary cure for acne, so see that Dermatologist ASAP.
