Please note: this is an old post. I have been blogging for a really long time: since my childhood, in fact. Bear in mind that any opinions stated may have changed, any code snippets may no longer be considered safe or secure, and my personal circumstances are almost certainly different to what's contained herein. You have been warned...
I am, generally speaking, a non-drinker. I tend to go months and months without anything alcoholic in my system. This is partly because I don’t really have a social life, and partly because I am aware of the downsides to drinking (who wants a dodgy beer belly?) That said, I consumed my fair share of wine over Christmas and I can really see it in my face. My skin is dry, red and blotchy. I’m not a vain person and I don’t “do” make-up and moisturising and all that crap, but it’d be nice to get my skin back to a more normal colour.
As far as I’m aware (limited knowledge on this sort of thing), the three things you need are water, oily fish and vitamin A. I’ve started drinking more water, I eat oily fish anyway (at least 2 portions of fish a week normally), and my main meals are 70%-80% vegetables like brocolli. So now I’m appealing to the more “girly” members of my loyal audience… what else can I/should I be doing to bring my skin back to normal?
I could preferably do with ideas that don’t involve me splashing out on creams and lotions, because that just isn’t going to happen. (The idea is hilarious, though…)
