While I hear what you're saying and totally agree that giving your body what it needs is a great plan to help prevent a whole host of diseases, especially diabetes, I also know people who eat crap and their skin still looks great...my mother was one...ate a crappy diet, no exercise, obese...ultimately succumbed to diabetes...but great skin...no wrinkles either...and others who eat great, do the right things and still have bad skin...i.e me lol. But... my worse skin also coincided with my worse eating...in my teens. Ate better in my 20's...skin better (not great) in my 20's. Ate fantastic in 30's AND exercised regularly...annnd...BAD SKIN in my 30's! WTF!? I went for the topicals...I had to...it was that or risk permanent scarring. I used them for about a year...then my acne resolved on its own. To this day I have no idea why I had acne that lasted 24 years...maybe it really was years of bad eating choices still affecting me years later. Maybe genetically my cure date was set from conception...who knows. Today I am acne-free. I am sure healthy diet, regular exercise, and multi are helping to keep my skin clear. I do indulge in the occasional McD's double cheeseburger...hey we all have our weaknesses! lol But I think what ultimately cured my acne was time.
Great you are leading such a healthy lifestyle! Well done!!! Bet we can eat off your skin!
That is a common question people ask: Why do some people eat so bad, yet have clear skin?! Well, it's simple. Everyone breaks down differently. For acne sufferers, we break down in the form of comedones i.e. acne. It may be embarrassing for some people to have acne, but it's actually a blessing in disguise! It is a visible signal for us that something is going out of whack. Unfortunately for other people, their body will break down in different ways, such as diabetes, or heart diseases. Acne is a blessing in that, we can heal ourselves, using acne as a meter, before much worse health problems manifest!
