Sooo.. just thought I'd use this as a place to track everything I'm doing for my skin. If I log, maybe I'll stay on track! Was doing low gi for a few weeks, my skin was getting so much better. Also started juicing a bit and taking extra supplements... until my best friends bday last week and my bfs bday a couple of days ago. Today, I now have about 6 new zits that just sprouted overnight. Could've been anything really.. lIquor, cookies, burgers, brownies, pizza, etc. I'm starting new tomorrow. I'm hoping this gets better fast! I only did low gi about 3 weeks last time and my skin improved tremendously! Scars as well. Here is what ill be doing:
Diet: low gi. Lots of non starchy vegetables, lean meats and healthy oils and avocados. Following the autoimmune protocol as well so no nightshades, citrus, alcohol, NSAIDS, nuts, seeds, eggs, caffeine. Eat a decent amount of sauerkraut. That's it.
Juicing whenever possible. No fruit.
Ginger, roasted dandelion root and chamomile tea.
Supplements:1 tsp Cod liver oil, 2000 ius d3, 250 mg calcium, 400 mg magnesium glycinate, milk thistle extract, triphala, 22 mg zinc picolinate, 400 mcg chromium picolinate, probiotics.
Topically: Simple gel facewash from walgreens, green tea teabag as a toner every other day and grapeseed oil as a moisturizer. May use my pca skin perfecting protection moisturizer in the daytime which has zinc oxide for spf.
Revlon colorstay foundation on spots only.
I'm attaching some before pictures, taken today. And just so everyone knows, my phone tends to make everything look a lot smoother and clearer than it really is! I have ice pick scars that are hard to see in the picture. I will post one every week.
That's all for now. Will update in a few days!
