Insulin resistance, dairy, jahoba and all that jazz

i had a breakout on my jaw over the past few days and my back's gotten worse.

I have had a few starbucks with normal milk and more chocolate/sugary things over the last week which could be causing it...

the quality of my skin has improved since I have used jahoba oil so i went out and bought some jahoba and neat teatree oil with the idea of using it daily. on my skin :( it was on offer in H&B. my chest in particular has REALLY improved since I started using jahoba oil every morning and evening.

at the moment:

am) witch hazel cleanser, boots spf 15 salycilic acid(willowbark) moisturiser with 6 drops of jahoba oil (occasionally with tea tree oil) on face and chest and wherever I can spread it. not my back.. cant reach.

pm) shower and jahoba oil (sometimes with tea tree) on face and chest.

looking forward to these blood tests... apart from the blood taking part.

have forehead spots which I have not had for a while :(

thats about it,

should be buying more diabetes diet books soon

I read something recently about insulin resistance, androgens, acne and how constipation can make IR worse..... interesting... so more fibre, less refined carbs and no dairy.

oh yeah water and sleep may be a plan also

romans used to wash my spreading oil (olive) over their skin and let it sit there then would scrape it off and dirt would come off with it..... maybe I'll try that with jahoba oil as an occasional treatment?

Hi there! I hope you are fairing well with your regimen. You mentioned insulin resistance. I found out a couple years ago I am in fact insulin resistant. My mom and her two sisters all have PCOS as well. I was tested for it, and everything came back normal. I'm not completely convinced I don't have it. But I suppose I'll take that for now. :PAnyway, I hope all will go well for you!!
