Breakout Outbreaks

Is it just me? Yes, when I’m frustrated with an issue, I like to be egocentric.

Here’s my issue:

Every month, about 1 to 2 weeks before the Menstrual Cycle Fairy comes to pay me a visit, I breakout. It’s not one or two cute little red babies planting themselves on my face but an invasion–a rash outbreak plus one to two humongous babies sitting oh so comfortably on me.

Here is what I don’t understand:

I don’t eat junkfood. I haven’t eaten junkfood since probably 8th grade. Therefore, it’s not like I have toxins in my body and they are producing these munchkins every month.

I’m a clean freak when it comes to my face and hygiene.

I’m physically active. I run. I do yoga.

I drink lots of water. My KleanKanteen is being refilled at least 5 times a day.

I eat lots of veggies and fruits. As noted, I’m about 95% vegetarian. I LOVE fruits. I eat some kind of fruit after every meal.

Potential Causation:

I eat too much sweets, especially before my monthly cycle. I know craving sweets is one of the symptoms but my kind of sweets is mostly natural. I eat lots of fruits to replace my sugar cravings. Sometimes, I eat some homemade oatmeal cookies made with brown sugar or honey instead of white sugar.

Do these types of sweets also affect my hormonal balance?

I leave you with a cookie.
