Tight Skin!

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, my skin is killing me at the moment. Its all clear from acne and it doesnt look dry at all. But it feels so dry and so tight! I only wash my face for 30 seconds every night and i moisturize with extra virgin olive oil. Thats it, no harsh products and it still feels like this! What can i do?? I eat tons of healthy fats and drink a gallon of water each day.

Should i start wash my face in the morning too and moisturize or what? I can't stand this feeling!

Its winter and everytime i go out my skin dehydrates or some shit i don't know.

You could try washing your face in the morning. I know if I don't my face feels dry. You might also consider adding something to moisturize. If you want to stay natural-- aloe, shea butter, or an essential oil?

What are you washing with?

80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

I don't consume:
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

(And that's without a face wash)

This site is absolutely loaded with info on curing acne internally
