Antioxidants And Sunscreen

07 February 2014 - 11:18 PM

Apparently you don't need sunscreen if you have a diet high in antioxidants.  Cant anyone explain this.  If I have a green smoothie every morning.  I have cinnamon, coconut oil, other vegetables, berries and more, I wont need sunscreen?

Need Feedback

03 February 2014 - 03:22 PM

Ill try and keep it short and simple.  I was clear before eating a healthy diet and using Clearasil SA 2%.  I got off track for about 2 months but still ate a lot of vegetables and stuff everyday, just ate cheat foods too.  I started breaking out more than I would like but still not too bad.  I have now been 100% paleo for a month and stopped using the Clearasil SA 2%.  I am not intolerant to any foods I eat ( at least I don't think so because I eat what I ate before when I was clear and that's it) but am still breaking out.  I have a few questions for everyone.  Should I go back to Clearasil SA?  I wanted to stay away from bad ingredients but it worked before.  Also I have been really nervous the last week and on an emotional rollercoaster.  Does this seem more likely for the breakouts I have been having?  I have anxiety ( I try to deny it but its true) its pretty mild though but it can get bad every here and there.  I have also been working out a few times a week and noticed im getting spots on my back (mostly due to the tighter shirts I wear while exercising, but could it be making me flare up too?  I know it most likely comes down to, live your life and don't worry about acne, but come on, in our world appearance is important to most people and its hard when you have bumps all over. 

 

Is anxiety considered stress?  When you get butterflies constantly in your stomach and rapid heartbeat sometimes (this mainly only happens in class) does that affect my skin?

 

I guess I didn't keep it short and simple.... but also, is it possible I am still detoxing after a month in paleo?  My skin looks a lot better but still not there...I am a teenager.  Maybe its just my hormones?  LMAO look at all this I typed... :) I appreciate any feedback. Thanks


Good Things To Treat Pimples

30 January 2014 - 05:38 PM

I switched about a month ago or so to just using a cleanser and moisturizer.  My skin has been getting better but pimples take longer to go away.  I was using Clearasil with salicylic acid but read about its bad for your skin over time, and it makes me get sunburn quick.  I need like a spot treatment type thing for pimples but without all the harsh ingredients.  Salicylic acid worked great btw so idk...


Anxiety/paleo/mixed Emotion Help

15 January 2014 - 03:49 PM

Ok so I have been paleo for like a month and it feels great.  My skin is improving but not where I want it to be.  My athletic performance is becoming outstanding.  I guess I am happy overall except for the fact I have anxiety.  I read that anxiety can be gut related and that's when I changed my diet a year ago.  I have been eating extremely healthy for a year and went a step further by following paleo now.  I have been doing everything in my power to be as healthy as I can be.  I exercise daily, I get more than enough vitamins (according to fitday) and am wondering why I cant shake the anxiety.  I am 19, when I was 10 I had a serious panic attack in public and woke up in the hospital with an IV.  It disappeared literally until I got acne which was a few years ago.  I started over thinking things like that people were staring at my face and thinking things like ew.  The point is I am starting to get this anxiety back and I am wondering if it is from acne alone, or am I having this coming back from when I was 10?  Do you guys with acne suffer from anxiety?  Is that the only reason if so?  It is starting to bug me.  I went grocery shopping today and felt extremely nervous with everything I did the second I entered the store.  The anxiety is not only from acne.  When im driving I get nervous like when people all stop at a red light, I feel like everyone looks at me and just thinks negative things.  I feel like everybody out there is just mean, looking for violence, and just selfish.  I am scared I think?  Sorry the thoughts are popping up as I type.  I know not everyone is like that (like this website is very supportive) but I just have that mentality.  Can anyone else relate in any way?
