An acne-riddled bodybuilder has revealed the surprising dietary tips that cleared his complexion.
Brian Turner, 23, turned to veganism after exhausting every possible solution to rid his face of the large pus-filled cysts that had haunted him since puberty.
He guaranteed others could banish acne if they dropped all dairy out of their diet, drank a gallon of water a day and ate at least 10 to 16 servings of vegetables a day.
In an Instagram video posted to his 70,000 followers, Mr Turner revealed the secrets behind his crystal-clear complexion.
‘So I used to have super severe acne all over my face. I had nodular cysts – four, five, six of them – over my face every single day of my life,’ he said.
‘Literally never would I not have three or four cysts on my face.
‘Eventually I was able to clear it up. And a lot of you guys having been asking me, ”How did you get clear? What did you do?”.
Mr Turner initially used Accutane, a heavy duty anti-acne drug, but his skin problem returned once he weaned off it.
‘I can’t lie to you. I took Accutane for over 70 weeks,’ he said.
‘After I took it I started to relapse a little bit and I could see my acne starting to come back in little dots.
‘So what I did is I tried multiple different things but the thing I ended up sticking with was going vegan.
‘So that means no animal-based products at all. But it also for me meant drinking way more water.’
Mr Turner ‘guaranteed’ that his prescription of water and vegetables would help acne sufferers.
‘If you have acne…drop all dairy out of your diet, drink at least a gallon of water a day and eat at least 10 to 16 servings of vegetables a day,’ he said.
‘If you do those two things I guarantee that you will see some difference in your skin.’
