I normally take a multivitamin to supplement B-12 and iron. (I'm vegan and I'm also anemic.) Recently I've made sure to be extra diligent about it. I want to be at my best, inside and out! And I don't want any excuses for a breakout. ("oh, I didn't take my vitamin!" or whatever.) In addition to the vegan multi, I've added a vegan algae-based DHA, which I hope will help improve alertness and my acne situation. I took my first one today:)
In regards to switching from my former regimen to the new, more holistic one: my plan is to go slow. Normally I get excited about a new plan and tend to just go all in on it... but I really want an opportunity to look at all the variables. I don't want to start a new washing method, new moisturizer, new topical, and new vitamins all at once because then I would never be able to tell for certain what exactly made my skin better or worse.
So, for today, it's the new vitamins. In a few days, I'll swap out my BP with TTO. Next, I'll try using honey as a cleanser. (there's also the possibility of reverting back to Avalon Organics Lavender Gel cleanser, which I think I liked.) Lastly, I'll switch my Neutrogena oil free to an Avalon Organics oil free.
I'm excited to get this process started. I'm hopeful! But, at the end of the day, skin is just skin. I'm happy I am who I am and that's what matters.
