Okay, so the reason I posted a picture of cod liver oil (CLO) is because of my new hobby: Natural skin care.
I’ve decided to eat natural and real food and in my research on that I came across a couple of people recommending going all natural with natural skin (and body, hair and teeth) care… I googled around and researched the topic a bit more and stumbled upon Liz (from Cave Girl Eats) and her Skintervention Guide in a podcast by Jimmy Moore (From Living La Vida Low Carb). So I thought: Now that I’m eating natural, why not try to put natural stuff on my skin too?
I’ve had a combination of sensitive/oily/acne prone skin for ages and I had issues with big zits and acne when I was a teenager - I hoped it would get better, and it did, but I still get break outs, especially before my period. I have small scars on my cheeks from my teenager years and I have blackheads (especially on my nose). I’ve used a number of products promised to help me, but they never really lived up to their promise… According to Liz (Skintervention Guide) natural skin care helped her out and will (hopefully) help me and other people out - Pretty much no matter what skin type you have and which kind of problems you are struggling with.
I was a bit skeptical at first - I almost always are when presented to something new - I’m (almost) an academic, so I were taught to have empirical background and do my research properly. So I did. When I’d done my researched and had made sure that this Skintervention Guide and Liz were genuine, I bought her e-book (Skintervention Guide) and started reading…
The whole idea is that of course you start form the inside out with eating clean, natural, organic and real food, but that might not do the whole trick for you - you also have to treat your body with natural products to get the best results. For example this means that you can use organic coconut or olive oil as a moisturizer.
One of Liz’ top advices is to start taking Cod Liver Oil. You can do that fermented (in capsules) or in oil form. I couldn’t find any fermented CLO near my home so I went and bought some oil. I took 2 tsp today and I’m going to do this every day from now on.
I will take all my skin care product and replace them with natural ones. I don’t know how long my experiment will go for (I’m thinking at least 4 weeks, hopefully longer if it works), and I promise to keep you updated and post info on natural facial masks etc.
