I made a bunch of lifestyle changes recently, notably: no alcohol, strict Paleo (low FODMAPS version), trying a new cleanser/moisturizer, and taking a variety of new supplements. The result is that my blackhead-, clogged pore-, occasional... (more)

Hey all, Only been one week into Paleo. Haven't noticed any significant changes except I tend to get redness on my face at times. My main question is, do most people see changes in skin while on Paleo? I've been itching a lot more than usual,... (more)

How do you feel otherwise? Any out of ordinary symptoms? When I came down with adrenal fatigue I could hardly eat a bite. Just want to make sure you don't have something else going on causing the lack of appetite.
Just finished reading Liz Wolfe's skintervention guide...my skin is what brought me to paleo 3 years ago. It has improved quite a bit, but I have big pores and blackheads! I can't seem to get the oil cleansing method right (skin is too oily or too... (more)

Ever since going on paleo I have been much more health conscious in all kinds of ways. I'm sleeping more and trying to take better care of my skin. I have been using a normal moisturizing lotion to try to keep my skin healthy and young. Lately I... (more)
Hello there paleo hacks, i've been eating paleo for a few weeks now & lurking this site a fair amount, its been going really great, basically the less carbs/more meat & fat i eat the better i look & feel, it's taken a few weeks to get... (more)
Does anyone know if using glycation-causing molecules topically can damage the skin? I'm using pure glycerin (a sugar alcohol) regularly, and was wondering if this might be harmful. While I get different opinions when it comes to the glycation... (more)
Interesting question, I don't have an answer but an opposite question. Do supposedly topical antiglycation products like creams with r or alpha lipoic acid in them really have any effect?
I actually had my first ever flare up of perioral dermatitis around my nose about 6 months ago. Been Paleo for nearly a year now and have no idea why it's come about when my previous diet and skincare regime was very much based around commercial... (more)
After ditching all my chemicals a long while ago i decided to give coconut oil a try for moisturizer/post shave lotion. I got hold of some organic virgin stuff (coconoil). i applied it & went about my business. When i got back home a couple of... (more)

I occasionally use apricot kernal oil topically. Am I absorbing the omega-6's, and if so, how bad is it? I love coconut oil, but it is pricey, so I use the cheaper oil for non-cooking purposes. Thanks in advance.
Certain fatty acids are absorbed through the skin, yes. fatty acids absorbed in this way would be unlikely to cause inflammation like consuming an o6 heavy food or oil might.
I know saturated fat is apparently not bad for you but since I increased my butter intake I swear my skin has gotten worse. Practically every site other than paleo says to avoid excessive saturated fat for complexion and I'm starting to wonder if... (more)
Well, generally things that are inflammatory contribute to acne flare-ups. With that said, saturated fat is the least inflammatory (certain versions of SF vary slightly) of the fats one can consume. Perhaps you're particularly intolerant to dairy... (more)
