Alright, so I just pulled myself out of a little slump. Stressed about college, my boyfriend I see once a year, a new job I'm starting, my running career being jeopardy cause of a bounced knee, small tings that add up. But it will all be okay. One step at a time. Life must go on even if I have acne and fears. It could be worse...no jinx!
Alright, and I know stress causes acne, I try to be really calm all the time, but I've had acne for 6 years now, and I was clear when I was young like most of us are, which makes me really question food intolerances and that jazz, although they do exist I guess, but they don't always cause acne (Like not all lactose intolerant people who consume milk have acne). Any-who, acne mostly develops in teens during puberty, pregnancy, and now a lot in adults these days.
I feel like diet has a lot to do with it, getting the right vitamins and nutrients. During our lives our bodies demand a lot of vitamins and nutrients. The fat soluble one's are stored cause they were hard to get evolutionarily I guess, so we don't even need to ge them daily. BUT imagine being so low that not enough is even stored. So, we must replenish our bodies. I mean though, a lot of people are skinny, exercise, eat healthy and still have acne, but I just dunno why. I wish someone would figure this out.
My skin has cleared up a lot. I've been in the caribbean and eating healthier than ever and training. I dunno, I feel like, well hope that if I fix my vitamin stores I can be healed. I dunno! I fixed my constipation, probiotic, I don't eat any grains except rice sometimes, I legume rarely, nuts maybe 4 times a year, no dairy, I'm green smoothying currently and taking zinc, vitamin e, milk thistle and burdock root.
Topical products can make skin worse, so I've learned to test them for skin rections. Natural products are the way to go.
Anyways though, I think that really low vitamin stores not being replaced over time ruins the total balance in the body. I've researched skin for 5 years, and tried many diets, and I'm pretty much paleo. But still not clear, it's really not fair. I know It could be worse. I could have one leg and have a lot of other problems but it's such a downer, i'm sure you must know.
But zinc and magnesium are precursors for a lot of vitamins and all the fat soluble vitamins are super important. Also, insulin sensitivity happens with too much sugar and a poor diet, but not to everyone obviously. I just really think that's why green smoothies help some people.
But some vitamins don't work without others. I mean, I've eaten a load of carrots and seen orange poop, then eaten a a lot recently and seen no orange. I eat any veggie with some coconut oil for better absorption. I feel like my body needs it cause my stools are just normal, like i'm absorbing it.
I'm just hoping to hope to have one less worry and to feel a little bit happier and better.
But back to fat and skinny people. I feel like your liver and organs should heal and function if you give them what they need and fat people surely aren't but usually have clearer skin. But if they aren't getting all the nutrients they need how are they having clear skin? Perhaps their bodies are more efficient at storing vitamins and minerals from the crap they eat?
Hmmm I just don't get that at all?
Any ideas? Any words of inspiration? I would love to hear people who are clear and happy and cured.
