You've all taken science and learned about pH levels right? Quick review:
Acid = Bad
Alkaline = Good
Foods can be broke down into Acid, Alkaline, and Neutral. Believe it or not, your body is affected by the pH levels in food and your body changes accordingly. What's the pH in your body? Have you checked? There seems to be a direct correlation between pH and acne, as acidity is known to cause a wide range of side effects, including acne.

Now where is milk on this chart? Think about it!

Water is supposed to be neutral at 7.0...but who knows how clean YOUR tap water is! I drink from a Brita filter myself...but not always. :-k
In any case....YES! Drink water! Drink drink drink.

anyone know where i can get some breast milk then ? !

I drink soy milk with organic museli, together with rice flakes with psyllium - yumm!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you don't like cereal(Heaven forbid) then eat fruit and a piece of toast (not white bread).

Are you talking about whole psyllium husks (dry) that you eat with your cereal? Or is the psyllium an integrated part of your rice flakes? I've been wondering if you could just take the psyllium husks dry like crushed flax seeds.

P.S. I like Soy Milk in some stuff, but not cereal. I've been putting Almond Milk in my cereal and I like it much better. Down side: even more $$$ than soy milk #-o . Oh well...
Anyone else having any success with the no dairy diet?

But other than that, my skin has never looked better!

Dairy tastes so good!
Okay, this is my 4th day now without dairy and my skin looks good again today. Pimples I've had for a while now have been going away and no new breakouts today again. I still feel like this is too good to be true...too soon to tell...
Here are some other related goodies:
1) Another good nondairy product, besides Almond milk: Silk brand French Vanilla soymilk creamer for coffee. Yum...
2) I have a really good-tasting recipe for vegan French toast if anyone is interested... (it's not "pretend good" like a lot of vegan recipes ha ha)
3) I'm finding that vinegar works better for me than Retin-A Micro, benzaclin, and other topicals.
4) I stopped using Cetaphil lotion cleanser because I don't like the filmy feeling it leaves on my skin (it's the moisturizing/softening effect that a lot of people do like). I started using Neutrogena bar soap. I threw away the package, but it's just the basic unscented sensitive skin one that's orange-y colored and translucent.) It leaves my skin neither filmy moist nor gross dry. People who don't like Cetaphil might try it...
Anyone else having success with giving up dairy???

milk is really bad for my skin. i remember just last summer, i drank milk and cerealy every day, and my skin just got fuked up. but once i stopped drinking milk, my skin got so much better.
i still do eat cheese and yogurt and stuff, but i never drink milk.
