hey sparkies :)

i should be sleeping right now, and my eyes are burning really bad, but i won't be able to sleep if i don't blog real quick... so here goes...

woke up at 6 this morning, worked 9-2 today, day went pretty quick.. ran some errands, was home by 4, ate a 6 inch turkey on wheat from subway, baked some brownies for a meeting at work tomorrow (i promised them i would LOL), cleaned the house a lil, went for sushi with my honey (MMM!!!), went to dick's sporting goods and got some new lifting gloves (FINALLY!), and then got 2 new shirts from PacSun for a total of $5.98 (Goddd i love awesome sales!) and picked up some Vitamin C 500mg and Chelated Zinc Gluconate 50mg. i'm supplementing with zinc because i heard it can do wonders for acne, and for the last year and a half i've been battling adult acne.. i have found that my skin flares up when i consume dairy or nuts. i'm crossing my fingers that the zinc will prove to be beneficial... did some reading and there are many symptoms of being zinc deficient, that i have. i'm hopeful... i want to try to rely more on herbal/mineral remedies instead of spending wayyy too much money on pricey skin care regimens. eating clean, working out, supplementing, and getting decent sleep should help. key word-SHOULD. LOL. well, i better get to bed so i can have a great workout tomorrow morning! hope all of you are doing well!

much love,

    I'm not for the tanning bed emoticon my fair irish skin can't handle that! Plus the risks scare me but good luck with the zinc. My grandmother swears by Witch Hazel, you can buy it at the drug store. I have tried all the expensive face products too but nothing helped. I sell Avon so I figured I would try their stuff. It's a little pricey at times but I use their face wash and face cream. Then I just buy a scrub from the store and have found it works wonders! I rarely get a pimple and when I do, it's stress induced. Plus I drink lots of water so that helps keep me hydrated. Let us know how the zinc works!

    I've found that after only 3 sessions in the tanning bed, my acne is almost ALL cleared up! I've also been supplimening with vitamin D on days I don't tan... I'm looking and feeling so much better about myself! (Isn't it amazing how crappy pimples can make us feel!?!)

    Good Luck with the zinc suppliments! The clean eating also really helped my skin. Sugar was causing my pimples to run wild!

    I love great sales too! Great job being proactive, trying to see what will help the actual cause of something (acne) rather then just treat the symptoms. emoticon

    Zinc huh? I never heard of that before! Definitely something to look into to! I have issues with acne (I'm 22) but I'm afraid it'll never go away, since my mother (45) still deals with it. Thanks for the tip :)
