LUSH-ous SKIN!

Happy Monday! YAY WORK!

I am so pleased with the Lush products! My acne is not 100% gone, but I would say 80% now. Not wearing makeup today. I am really really really really happy. On top of that I was over at my friends' Brett and Shae's last night. Shae's sis-in-law, Anna (who is sooooo beautiful with the most incredible skin ever) is a facialist and she said, "Take acidophilus and fiber and that should improve the area around your mouth. You get breakouts because your body has too much yeast." Acidophilus is a probiotic. It's great for women who suffer from yeast infections. Pop that stuff in your mouth and poof, your yeast infection is gone. So, in addition to the Lush products, I will implement her advice. I normally try and get all my nutrients through food first because taking supplements isn't always the best if you don't know what you're doing. But according to Anna, acidophilus is not bad to take. In fact, she said you can take as much as you want. I am going to look this up just in case. Secondly, the fiber I'll take in its capsule form Psyllium Husk. You can get this at any drug store. Just make sure if you're following this solution that you research this stuff. Everybody takes to things differently.

If you recall I mentioned in an earlier blog that Gillian McKeith (author of You Are What You Eat) mentions in her book that acne around the mouth is because of digestional problems. Anna emphasized that I stay away from dairy products, wheat and sugars of any kind. So, while I have the dairy products and sugars pretty much handled, the wheat is something I might try - which is another reason I am taking the Psyllium Husk in capsule form. A lot of fiber is found in wheat products, so if I am to stay away from wheat, I want to make sure I am getting enough fiber! Staying away from Gluten (wheat) is something many suggest. It is a very common food allergy, but many people don't either know or care. My sister, Miranda and my friend Kerry just gave up wheat. We can see if they feel a difference from this. More on that in the future.

Happy skin!
