A Bump in the Road...Zits.
|Golden (flawless) glow...MIA, boo!|
****FLASH***flash***FLASH*** Yeah, so almost one month ago, I started taking 1,000 mcg of Biotin daily, which, according to the Rexall bottle I have is, "an essential B vitamin that is involved in the intermediate metabolism of carbohydrates.* Biotin also assists in protein and fat metabolism and supports healthy skin, hair and nails.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."
I started taking this supplement because I wanted to boost my hair and nail strength and growth. And it totally seem(ed)s to be working. With. Just. One. Problem...Zits. That nothing controls. (Elle Fowler, of http://www.elleandblair.com/ said she had trouble with breakouts from this previously, but I thought, "Not me?!")
I know you're thinking...product overload? Checked. Cellphone attachment? Checked. Clean pillowcases? Checked. Midlife crisis? Checked. The only thing that I have changed from my normal life-routine is the supplement. So I've stopped taking it. It's only been two days since I quit, and I already have fewer new eruptions. And I'm PMS-ing now. With fewer zits. That SENTENCE is weird to say, so that has to mean something, you know?
So I grabbed my REN peel, my Biore Ice acne cleanser, and my not-too-much-change-at-once philosophy and we'll see what happens next. I am aiming for that golden glow, once more. STAT!
Cheers to not thinking about acne,
