As you all probably know, I’ve been pretty much 100% clear for 8 months now. I did this through a complete diet change and by taking supplements and of course the secret ingredient that is pleanty of lemon water. I did always get breakouts if I lapsed the diet, usually 4 days after doing so. If you wan’t to read more, I’ve got my regimine up on ‘User Regimines.’
Annnnyyywwwwho. For the past 3 weeks, I’ve let up on my diet quite heavily. I have stuck clear of wheat, and I still drink a lot of lemon water, but other than that, I’ve pigged out like a “normal” person does. Ice-cream, sweets (candy), saturated fatty foods, beer, chocolate, etc. I’ve not been moisturising at all (well, say 3 times in as many weeks?) and many nights I have just gone straight to sleep without washing my face whatsoever.
The lazyness began properly at a music festival, where I lived in a field for 5 days with no showers, no healthy food, and a beer replacing every pint of water I usually drink. My skin actually got BETTER there – but it didn’t surprise me because the same happened last year. I guess it must be something to do with the adrenaline rush there and the feeling really happy 24 hours a day whilst you’re there (it’s quite an experience!). The thing is, last year, my skin got right back to its old self within 2 days of returning home. No sign of that this year.
I’m not quite 17.5 years old yet, so I doubt I am “outgrowing” it just yet. Or is that a possibility?
Either way, I have to admit, it’s great. But I’m wondering why the <censored> have I not broken out yet? Do you think it’s just building up inside waiting to lash out good and proper? It’s very strange that I haven’t had a breakout; I usually do. It’s not like I have changed anything in my lifestyle since I’ve been home, other than my diet worsening!
