I'm not sure if it's sensitive skin or what... I've been 100% low fat raw vegan (losing weight) for just over 3 weeks. I feel like my skin has gotten worse instead of better, maybe it's just too soon? I've generally had some acne around TOM, but now I've got itchy bumps for no reason popping up everywhere, and my skin is a bit blotchy and bumpy, but I'm pretty sure it's not acne. The blemishes I do have are all around the jaw line area mostly, but occasionally near my nose or that "line" between my nose and corners of mouth. I'm mostly worried about the bumps and itchiness, though.
I've used diluted dr. bronner's, nadine artemis's best skin ever (and her poetic pits until I got the worst underarm rash ever from a reaction to something in it so I stopped the best skin ever, also), L'Occitane Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk, and various others. I can't seem to find anything that makes my skin feel clean and handles all this other stuff. I should note that I do wear makeup right now to make myself "presentable". It's only Alima Pure brand or Vapour Organics. So when I say "clean" I mean gets the makeup off. I feel like even when the cleanser says it removes makeup, if I use a white towel or cotton pad afterward I still get makeup off...
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Hi Lizz, am also experiencing super itchy skin with some break-outs. Have not been able to wear usual moisturizers and no longer wear face make-up. The only thing that feels good right now is pure cocanut oil on face and body. Sometimes in the evening I apply Braggs apple cider vinegar to the itchy areas, and it helps somewhat. It could be that our bodies are throwing off old junk from all the products we've used over time. Mine has been going on for a few months, and it's crazy making! Pretty sure it's temporary, but also pretty sure I can no longer use complex creams and other products on my skin anymore. So curious if others out there are experiencing what you and I are going through, and what has helped them. Warmly, Sharon
