Then add gluten containing foods back to your diet one at a time, but do not eat gluten containing foods more often than once every four days. You will find an excellent source of gluten-free diets and products at the Celiac Disease and Gluten Free Resource Center.

2. Other problem foods you'll want to avoid are dairy products, foods containing raw eggs, fried foods and processed foods. Eating a lot of fruit, especially citrus and sour fruit, may aggravate your symptoms.

3. Vitamin B complex is needed for healthy skin. Use a high-stress, yeast-free formula. Take 100mg three times daily with meals. You will want to take extras of the following B vitamins as well. Vitamin B3 (niacin) - important for proper circulation and healthy skin. Take 100mg three times daily. Do not exceed this amount, and do not take Niacin if you have a liver disorder, gout or high blood pressure. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) - deficiency has been linked to skin disorders. Take 50mg three times daily. Vitamin B12 - is important in cell formation and in longevity of the cell. Take 200mcg daily. Use a sublingual form.

4. Other helpful vitamins are Vitamin A helps to prevent dryness, and promotes the development of smooth skin. Using an emulsion form is safer at high doses,and makes it easier to assimilate.
