It’s now been six full months since I decided to go gluten-free again and my skin/acne has recovered so well. 

I also made the decision a couple of months ago now, to stop covering it up so much with make up. This may sound silly to some of you reading this, but it was a big thing for me to do – to embrace my face and all the acne and scars that now came with it.

I’ve also started using a charcoal face mask, which I apply once or twice a week and leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean. It’s good for drawing out impurities and giving skin a glow. Here’s the link to it: Purifying Charcoal Mask

I’m using it as and when my face needs it, once or twice a week max. I’m currently looking into trying Dermalogica products, though. Two friends have recommended them to me.

I’m using the Clean and Clear Moisturiser at the moment, which is helping to keep my skin smooth. Again, I’ve linked to it below.

I’m also still using progesterone cream 10%, one scoop in the evening and one in the morning, when I’m in my progesterone dominant phase, and only using little dabs on pimples and scars when in my oestrogen dominant phase.

The improvement in my skin is astounding. All from going gluten-free and using progesterone cream to aid my skin’s condition. I still get the odd pimple when I reach my oestrogen peak, but it’s no where near as bad as it used to be.

My periods are still regular and the PMS is still gone, too. I’m amazed. So I’ll clearly be keeping up being gluten-free!
