So here I am, in my late thirties with acne. I’ve never ever had great skin but I always figured it would get better as I got older. Well, I’m older now and it’s not any better. Sure, after I quit smoking, things cleared up a bit but not a ton. I don’t have horrible horrible acne with cysts and the like but I do get one or two big lovely zits a month with scores of smaller zits that are just always there, mostly along my jaw line and my cheeks. SO! I’m going to try something which I’ve resisted for years, I’m going dairy free for thirty days to see what happens. I’m not worried about milk or ice cream, there are a great alternatives out there for those things but cheese, oh man, cheese is going to be so difficult. I just love cheese so much. I did take before pics and will not be posting those, yet. If there is improvement, I will post the before and after to show the difference.

I cut out gluten for the month of January to see what sort of impact that had on things; I’ve always struggled with various skin issues, and they pretty well cleared up once I made that change. I’ve thought about cutting out other things, too, like sugar and possibly dairy, but that all sounds REALLY DAUNTING. I’ll be interested to hear how this all goes! -Paige

So far, it’s going okay! I do crave cheese a lot! Haven’t noticed much in the skin department yet but it’s only been about a week. I’ll keep you updated!
