Same here. My Nan had skin cancer when I was younger so it has made me paranoid.

I had many sunburns growing up, I hope I didn't doom myself. My Dad has had cancer burned off the top of his head, very very very very painful. He's bald on top and never wore a hat over the years. He's in his mid-50's too. Too many people our age getting it



Now I gotta get back on topic

Lots and lots of airbrushing Honestly, my skin has gotten better since going veg, but of course there are genetic factor that you can't help, no matter what your diet is. Plus, hormonal changes are evil to your skin. *points to a spot on my nose and cheek*

Yeah, I've noticed an improvement, it's probably half as bad. But I still get as many spots on my neck and have weird, pink, speckly pores on my arms.



To be honest reducing my dairy intake has had more of an effect than cutting out the meat, maybe cutting it out completely will make me radiant and beautiful.

I completely agree with you. I am a very pale skinned woman (so any imperfection or discoloration would show) and since I went vegan (was vegetarian but to be fair I was a horrible one, cake, cookies, icecream for breakfast, etc) and started eating right, my skin has began to glow! This has only been in the last year.



Hubby went vegetarian and his skin now glows too! (Plus I think he is a sexy british man, so I'm Biased..LOL!)



Kindest Regards,

"Here we observe a vegetarian reading a label carefully in a health food store. Notice the change in expression as they note the word 'Gelatin' on the label. Oh! oh! there is a courtship between two of the species occuring over by the bulk nutrtional yeast!"

I love Weird Al, actually. I didn't for a long time, but I'm addicted to his songs now, especially White and Nerdy. Classic.

I'm about the same age, I still have a little bit of acne issues too, mostly around my period. If it's really bothering you, you may want to see a dermatologist. It may be as simple as a food intolerance or skin allergy (perfume, detergent, hair spray, shampoo, etc). Luckily neither are serious, so it's not even something you really have to worry about in terms of your health Does anyone in your family have the same going on?

Bacne is a family issue, but it's not severe. I get it on my chest and shoulders too, although my neck is the worst. I don't know if it's actually spottier or I'm just more self conscious about it because it's visible.



I've never thought any of it was bad enough to warrant medical attention though.

I guess I don't look like a vegetarian. I am 6' 1" 200lbs. To be honest, most of the veg*n's I know are either stick figures or fat. I don't know any veg*n's in person who lift weights. The only veg*n's I now who lift weights are online.

I've never been told I looked like a vegan, but people used to think I was veg before I became one! Oh well, here I am now.



Either way, my skin has definitely been clearer, my asthma is better, I rarely if ever get sick. My family always makes comments on how great my skin looks, that my diet is working for me! Yay!



See, you guys, THIS is what vegetarians look like:















I love cartoons, can anyone tell?

Oh well! :P

I meant to say scrawny not stick figures. Semantics.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's not a big deal I hope my replies didn't make you feel self conscious or anything, I wasn't trying to go down that road at all. My Dad had really bad bacne, I'm surprised none of my siblings or myself got it. I think of it as an opportunity to take more relaxing baths with nice scrubs and bath bombs

My guy is just a hair under 6'1 and he's about 159, lean with muscles. He works out so much, makes me feel like a lazy bum He has to stay in shape for his career in the military.

I get perplexed looks when I say I'm vegan.



One person actually came out and SAID "But you're too fat to be vegan" and I'm pretty sure that's what everyone else is thinking...

I don't think anyone was ever surprised when I said I was vegetarian ... pale, slender, not overworked or overdressed, quiet and kind ... pretty much one of the veggie stereotypes.
