Do Like Woody and Stay Acne Free

We all know Woody Harrelson from his appearances in unforgettable movies such as “White Men Can’t Jump”, “Kingpin” and “Natural Born Killers”. Catch the re-runs of his great role as the hilarious bartender in the sitcom “Cheers”!

Woody Had Tons of Acne

Turns out that in his early twenties Woody had a terrible complexion and tons of acne. Woody explains that his acne disappeared after he became a vegan. He has remained a vegan for the last 25 years and his acne never came back.

Says Woody: “It’s been at least 20 years. I used to eat burgers and steak, and I would just be knocked out afterward. I had to give it up. The first thing was dairy. I was about 24 years old and I had tons of acne and mucus. I met some random girl on a bus who told me to quit dairy and all those symptoms would go away three days later. By God she was right.”

Looks like Woody is a good example of somebody that took that advise to heart and has reaped the benefits.


Becoming A Vegan Helped Woody to Stay Acne Free

Drinking milk can raise the levels of several hormones that play a key role in the development of acne.
Likewise, consumption of lots of sugar can cause an increase in the production of oil by the sebaceous glands, which in turn leads to an increase in acne. The mechanism behind this is explained in greater detail in the “Sugar and Acne” post. It is therefore no wonder that a low carb diet can help prevent acne, as noted in the “low Carb Diet” post . By becoming a vegan, Woody stacked the cards to his advantage.
It is one thing to clear up an active acne outbreak. It is quite another to keep the acne from coming back.
Several solutions are available that can bring an acne outbreak under control. As you know, here at Sana Fela we have developed a natural Tea Tree Oil treatment, which is highly effective in clearing acne without being harsh on your skin like many other treatments.

How to Keep Acne at Bay

Once you have a handle on your existing acne, what can you do next to keep it from returning? Have a critical look at your diet and see if there is something you can change to keep the acne away. It sounds simple - and It can be if you consider changing your diet as something that is valuable to your overall health. However... many would rather have their wisdom teeth pulled without anesthesia than to radically change their diet. However... maybe reducing your intake of milk, dairy and sugar can be tried to see if it helps your skin!
Think about it. But don’t take our word for it. Ask Woody!
