If You're Even A Tiny Bit Lactose Intolerant, Don't Play With Dairy

24 April 2014 - 04:08 PM

Sigh. I'm hating myself so much right now.

 

I am slightly lactose intolerant and can handle the occasional dairy. I recently got the idea that adding a little delicious, high quality butter  to my oatmeal wouldn't hurt. I did this for two weeks and now my face is inflamed. I went from clear to having 8 painful nodules on my face. 

 

Lesson learned.

 

Are you lactose intolerant? Ever had a similar experience?


Consistency And Dedication: Update On My Progress (Before, After, And Now Pictures)

09 March 2014 - 08:42 PM

Last year I wrote to y'all about how a gluten and sugar free, paleo diet with mineral supplements changed my skin. A year later I can tell you that's still the case. My skin isn't perfect, but this is the best complexion I've had since I was 12!

 

The only supplement I take now is magnesium because without it my skin becomes fragile, flakey, and I break out easily.

 

I eat lots of leafy greens, meat, and fat. I eat raw or semi-cooked liver twice a month, sometimes oftener.

If I can do it, you can too!

 

EDIT: Oh, and I only wash my face like twice a week. In the 2014 pics, I haven't washed my face in like three days. 


Low Sex Drive

30 August 2013 - 02:43 PM

Who else sufferes from a low sex drive?

 

I've found a connection between my chronically poor libido and my skin problems. Will discuss soon, but first I want to see how common low sex drive is among acne sufferers.
