I happened upon a article on the paiskincare blog talking about gluten and it sparked something off.
Although I know people who are gluten intolerant I assumed the symptoms were just of a digestive nature. The blog mentions that skin symptoms could be things like "redness, dryness, itching and rashes". After reading this I started doing some searches and a lot of people link a direct correlation to gluten in their diet to ill effects on their skin. A lot of the skin symptoms seem close to what I get, especially unexplained sensitivities.
Given that the skin cycle is meant to be 28 days I have decided to go gluten free for at least a month to see what, if any benefit it brings me.
So this is where it begins.
One thing I can say is that cutting out gluten in your diet is expensive, not only do the items cost that bit extra but I have made a lot of bad buys ( I have tried 5 different brands of bread in the run up to this test and all have been terrible).
From doing my searches quite a lot of people seemed to find a benefit with changing their skincare to gluten free as well so I followed suit and have changed completely over to the Pai range.
I have read a lot of positives from going gluten free; feeling more healthy, less tired, clearer skin and losing weight. I'll be back in about a months time to let you know how it goes.
All the items in the photos I bought myself.
