I'm referring to the Stone Age. They didn't have things like soap and all these fancy oil cleansers, so what was the method? Was it just scrubbing themselves with water? If so, what tools did they use? I'd imagine if they lived by the sea, they... (more)

Both men and women, in past age, human transmute far author semiconscious of their appearing and are far much curious in doing what they can forestall the signs of old. This ontogenesis interest has led rind care products manufacturers to find... (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)
I eat about from 1200 to 1,300 calories a day. I'm a runner, 122 lbs, 19, and 5 foot 7. I have been constipated lately, but then again, not really eating much. I have no desire to eat protien...but I do have a bit of fish every day. I don't... (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)
So I'm planning on getting a tattoo within the next 2 months (my artist is booked solid until then) and I was wondering if any other tattooed paleo hackers had any post tattoo aftercare tips? I'm currently not using shampoo or soap, aside from... (more)
I have been dabblin in paleo (80:20) for about 2 years now and finally got strict with it in last 4 months (ie: no gluten, only grass-fed, pasture-raised meat products). Mostly because I've moved to farm land that makes the lifestyle more... (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)
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)
I have been advised to try wheat germ oil for the stretch marks and was wondering if it's going to have the same negative effect on my body as consuming wheat? Also, my favourite lip balm contains wheat germ oil, is that dangerous as well? Many... (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 have read a few places that the probiotic yougurt (see here) can cause your skin to breakout. While there seems to be a good number of digestive health benefits I wanted to know if there is any validity to this . . . after all I am very self... (more)
I`ve been using a little bit of tea tree oil mixed with jojoba oil on my skin every night for a couple weeks. It has helped a lot on my skin problems! But I recently read this article... (more)
Sigh And after everything was going oh so well. It's no secret to this community that I'm a high stress individual. Here recently however, I may have discovered a symptom/ailment more annoying than anything digestive. My chest, and around my neck... (more)
Well have any of you tried it for your skin? I have never in my life found something that was so amazing at keeping my face/skin/lips moisturized. If any of you don't know what lanolin is, it is basically sheep sebum lol. For those of you who have... (more)
I'm a cook and work in moderate heat; often blasted by oven heat, standing over fryers ect. One of my goals in life is to look like i'm 25 when I'm actually 40...this could be difficult with my face taking loads of dry heat everyday. I've... (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.
Has anyone tried ghee for skin treatment? Mostly for acne healing? A few months back my doctor suggested using ghee eye drops for my self induced, obssessive rubbing session, irritated eyes. It worked like a charm! So, have you used it for... (more)
I have dogs at home that sleep in bed with me. It could be hard to try, get really messy and I bet I'd go through a lot of ghee. The dogs, on the other hand, would be happy.
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)
Has anyone have experience with dry brushing the body and face in order to exfoliate? I seem to have build up everywhere no matter what I do, whether it be soap or scrubbing. Scrubbing only makes my skin red, yet when I scrape my nails across my... (more)
