Struggling hard with sugar cravings? Bad news if you also suffer from acne.
Sugar causes acne, Or at least it’s a top contributor to it for most peeps. It promotes inflammation and hormone imbalance, via that sneaky hormone called insulin.
And there is such a thing as sugar addiction, and all the intoxicating sugar cravings that go with that.
I know this, because I’ve experienced it.
It’s time for me to come clean — with a few juicy stories from my misty past, and what I did to claim my health and acne prone skin back from my over-the-top sugar cravings.
For a few years, I actually had a dedicated budget to chocolate and cookies and sweet things.
When I prepared for a trip, I made sure to pack a couple of chocolate blocks, just in case.
And I remember that one time when my housemate showed my guests (my friends!) how many chocolate blocks I kept in the fridge. (5)
I remember feeling annoyed at my housemate for revealing my dirty secret, and yet thinking that nothing was wrong with my chocolate intake, thank you very much.
I didn’t realise it wasn’t normal.
Worse, I didn’t realise it wasn’t healthy.
So… Hello, my name is Celine Harleaux, and I’m a recovering addict.
