Grains…and Skin

I’m not that excited about posting crappy photos of myself, but it helps make a point, and I’m happy to share so others can see.

Among the many other benefits I’ve realized by removing all grains from my diet (all, not just grains that contain gluten), is clear skin. Not random clear skin, but reliable, consistent clear skin. My neck and chin used to break out so bad, and I’d ask various doctors when I’d see them, the answer was always “well, you’re in your 30’s now, and hormones are changing, etc.” Great, getting older rocks! I thought I was doomed, but quickly realized after removing grains, they were apparently more of a problem for my skin than I knew.

  1. DITTO! I have had eczema my whole life, was told “oh it’s because you have asthma…here’s some medicine to stop the itching”. After removing ALL grains from my diet….NO MORE. I also no longer have allergies – I have won my life long battle with pollen, cats & certain foods. Paleo Pals unite in beautiful skin :o)
