I got this comment a while back, and because I’ve been traveling lots I have not had the time to write an answer… but here we go!
Hey! I really like your blog! I’m also interested in healthy eating, yoga, lifestyle etc! I know you have perfect skin, but i have a question. My skin is never perfect, always two or three pimples, rashes etc. I cut out dairy and only drink almond milk, but still eating a bit of cheese. I eat healthy i general, run, do yoga and drink a lot of water. I also take fish oil pills and put coconut oil in smoothie, coffee etc. I don’t do a lot to my skin, since i’m reacting on almost everything. So i clean it at night, and some times use almond oil or a bit of creme. I seems like you know a lot about healthy lifestyle, so do you have a tip or anything ? /S
First thing first, I promise you I don’t have perfect skin. I always have some irritation or pimple or burst blood vessel’s on my face – I have just like you, a VERY sensitive skin. And I must admit, from reading your comment, I promise you, you are more healthy than me!
Anyway.. I thought I would give you my tricks to a healthy skin. First of all – I don’t use ANY non natural creams on my face. I only ever moisturise with raw coconut oil, raw E vitamin oil or a mix of other natural oils such as avocado oil and clementine oil.. I only scrub my face in the evening (with natural scrub, such as homemade bicarbonate scrub) to get rid of all the dirt from living in London – and in the morning I only wash with luke warm water.
But there is one thing more important to the above – water! Especially my hot cups (at least 3) of water every morning before breakfast – I boil water as if I would have tea, but skip the tea bag and drink just the water – its AMAZING for the body and skin. Your tummy will feel like you are having an instant detox and your skin will be fresh and radiant after continue with this routine.
You seem like you have made the right choices already, when it comes to food! I know that if I eat wheat, dairy or sugar my skin gets irritated. But I would have such a boring life if I could not eat those ingredients (cheese, chocolate, pasta…). So I just balance what I eat, when I eat it etc. And I know I have to pay for it the next day with bloated tummy and irritated face – but its worth it sometimes.
However, once my birthday has passed (end of next week!) I will do an alcohol, wheat, dairy and sugar detox. MUCH NEEDED after this summer. Will post on the blog how I’m going to do it and maybe you can do it with me!
