Stopping Yeast The Answer To Your Skin Problems?

I promised I would provide a list of foods to avoid that will help reduce candida yeast and help clear up stubborn acne. This is what I recommend to my clients when they are doing the candida yeast cleanse.

Many times stubborn acne (and several other skin issues like rosacea and eczema) respond very well to this temporary diet alteration. This information is to be used as a guide, but for those of you who have worked with me one-on-one and follow the Acne Free in 3 Days book will be familiar with these recommendations.

Foods To AVOID Completely For Four Weeks

Refined Sugar

Refined sugar encourages the growth of candida yeast. It is the one ingredient that causes blood sugar spikes linked to acne flare ups and other skin diseases. Many times just removing this will completely clear up skin where candida overgrowth is the problem.

Refined sugar includes: white sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, maple syrup, corn syrup, maple sugar, molasses, date sugar, turbino or raw sugar, rice syrup, sorghum.

Check your labels carefully for hidden forms of sugar. My list "Sugar by Another Name" includes: sucrose, fructose, maltose, lactose, glycogen, glucose, manitol, sorbitol, galactose, mono-saccharides, poly-saccharides.


Processed Fruit typically includes fresh, frozen, canned, and dried fruit and juice. 1 Serving of fresh organic fruit is fine.


All food that contains yeast are typically eliminated. Yeast-containing foods include: Baker's yeast, Brewer's yeast, Engevita, Torula, and any other types of nutritional yeast.

Many baked goods that are made with yeast like breads, rolls, crackers, bagels, pastries, and muffins are not recommended either.


Gluten is found in foods such as wheat, barley, and rye. It is not found in rice, corn, or rice and corn flour products.

This includes products made with these ingredients such as bread and pasta. Gluten has the same impact on blood sugar as refined sugar and needs to be avoided.


All of the types of vinegar, such as white vinegar, red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar, and balsamic vinegar, and any food made with vinegar.

This includes miracle whip, mayonnaise, commercial salad dressing, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, BBQ sauce, shrimp sauce, soy sauce, mustard, pickles, pickled vegetables, green olives, relishes, horseradish, mincemeat, and chili sauce. Mushrooms and cheeses containing mold (like bleu) are also a no-no.

Dairy Products

Candida is thought to impair the body's ability to digest fat, so dairy products may have to be restricted as well. How much dairy one consumes may also depend on individual reactions to cow's milk and cow milk products such as cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, and butter.

People often temporarily eliminate the following dairy foods from the diet:

1. Cow's milk, including whole, skim, 2%, dry powdered milk.

2. Most cheeses. Cheeses lower in lactose may be tolerated, such as Monterey Jack, sharp white cheddar, swiss, mozzarella, Colby, provolone, and dry curd cottage cheese.

I know this may seem like a lot to avoid, but there are many meals that are down right tasty that you can make without these ingredients. Not surprisingly, they are also healthy and fresh.

By instituting these changes for a four week period of time, you will likely see a cessation of symptoms if candida is your issue. Acne will clear, unnecessary pounds will vanish, and your energy and mood will shift upward.

Then, all the good things you are doing on the outside like good naturally-based skin care products (like Ginale) and a healthy lifestyle will pay dividends way beyond your expectations.

I know, I did this and live a healthy and skin issue free life going on 22 years now. :-)

Thanks for your suggestions but can one really avoid these foods? Mostly all these foods make up our daily food. how can we manage that?

Celeste Davis said...

This works but you are right Lizzy, you have to be intentional about your choices. We avoid all these things and were able to eliminate diabetes, eczema, plantar fasciitis, prostate problems and IBS in just 21 days! That was 6 years ago and we are still a bonus to switching to a mostly veggie and a little fruit diet we also lost a combined total of 132 pounds in just 4 months! (we=hubby and I)

Ok, but what can i eat then?

I eat pizza for weeks now, because i found this has less suggar than most of the other foods i foud. But i have no idea of what else is there. I mean, pizza is baked, so there is probably yeast.

Can someone tell me 2 or 3 meals, that i can eat and that avoid all of the »forbidden« fruits?

Cutting sugar these days is much easier than it used to be with sugar substitutes. I use splenda, truvia and stevia. The latter 2 are completely natural and made form plants.

Most breads ( leavened ) have yeast. This is whatmakes bread rise versus unleavened bread which is like a cracker.

For the prupose of addressing skin problems realted to yeast over growth I recommend cutting out all refind sugar and proacess foods for at least 6 weeks. A few servings of fruit daily is fine as well. Candida yeast throives on a high sugar diet and releases toxins that cause all kinds of issues in the body. Cutting sugar starves out the yeast so good bacteria can take over and replace it. Adding a probiotic will help speed the process. ~Chris~

What about using a Candida Cleanse type of product? All kind of herbs that supposedly kill off the years over 30 days. I assume this also affects the good bacteria, so follow this with intensive probiotics (but not at same time, as probiotics affected by herbs as well). Those are my assumptions... what do you think?

I noticed apple cider vinegar is on the list of foods to avoid. However, I heard of many health benefits of consuming this particular type of vinegar for the body. If it is raw and organic (ex: Bragg's), is it still to be avoided? And why exactly? Does it feed candida?

Not to beg the point, would you include kombucha in the list of foods to avoid? there is a mass of good bacteria in it and supposedly great for us.
