The sprite might have done more damage than the bourbon- all that sugar and/or corn syrup isn't good for anybody. You may have corn syrup as a neutral, since you're an A,  but it's still a concentrated source of sugars and too many sugars weakens the immune system.


It was a lot of sugar, thats a very good point.

It seems pretty up to date still though! it links right to the type 4

Cod liver oil, which is marked as to be avoided, is not the same as fish oil. And then there is pharma grade oil which is distilled super clean and really only has those beneficial fatty acids left.

I have "goose bump" skin too! The technical name for it is Keratosis Pilaris, or KP. It is hardened keratin (like in fingernails) than we can't metabolize as the skin renews itself. So your hair follicles get all clogged. Manual exfoliation and moisturizers with alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid.

(Alba has a good moisturizer you could get at any health food store but the glycolic acid in it is not very strong. I would recommend manual exfoliation, like dry brushing, with the Alba moisturier.)

More info on kp:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keratosis_pilaris

If you are sirous about maintaining it, then microdermabrasion from a professional is worth it. That's what I do with mine when I have free time at work (I'm and Esthetician).

Here's some info on microderm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microdermabrasion#Microdermabrasion

I had heard too that it is a vitamin A deficiency. I took some vit A supplements for awhile but never had any change. I was more toxic then and  it’s possible that by gut lining wasn’t allowing the vitamin in. I’m curious to see how it would work now. I really hope mine goes away soon! It’s embarrassing when clients ask about it if I forget to put makeup on it.

I also was pretty toxic as a teen after about 18 and my skin was horrible!!! Cystic acne and breakout all on my face galore! My skin is so clear now! Thanks to swami and lots of greens! My triggers are  sugar, wheat and certain kinds of dairy.

I tell my clients about healing the body holistically first and eating for your blood type FIRST and then you will have great skin by default..then skincare and regular treatment.

I send people to the website constantly and lots of them ER4TheirT now...

Just had a  thought - does your boyfriend wear cologne/aftershave? I react to those sort of things & after even a brief half hour visit from a friend (especially if we have hugged & kissed as a greeting - which is pretty usual, as I only see him every few weeks) I will usually break out, especially if I have a patch/spot that is almost healed (& worse so, if it is not yet healed) In that situation I do find drinking bicarb in water & taking a hista calm afterward helps... I'd take it before, if he'd only tell me when he was dropping by
Not sure if the rising cortisol factor with us nonnies comes into it?! For me anxiety/excitement do seem to affect things more, so might well be a factor, as with you, emotions/excitement would be involved even more!!

that's not fair to us as human beings, to have bad skin when excited! I think there is something that us nonnies are missing. Any emotion comes with hormones that if the body is any bit if balance will show. Hormones are deactivated by the liver and filtered out in other organs plus lymph, we are so bogged down and broken!

Often we are missing molydenum & as I said if I take the hista calm, things are way better...

Don't get too down... it is what it is (sometimes) unfortunately... But we are often much more in tune in other (exciting?) ways...

Did you check re the aftershave/colgne?
