Today we discuss, Dairy Face – a term coined by UK Naturopath, Nigma Talib. The thinking is that your skin is related to your digestive health, so you might see certain parts of your face reacting to stress in your gut, depending on the types of food or drink you are intolerant to. In previous posts, we’ve discussed the other three faces that the doctor describes:

  1. Gluten Face –  Characterized by a range of symptoms including psoriasis, eczema, acne or dry skin.
  2. Sugar Face – Sugar consumption reacts with proteins, creating elements called advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) leading to skin that appears wrinkles, saggy and gaunt.
  3. Wine Face – Typically associated with individuals who consume one or two glasses of wine or other alcohol most nights of the week, skin becomes dehydrated, making fine lines and wrinkles look worse. The face may become red and make the individual appear older.

Dairy Face is related to the consumption of foods including milk and cheese and is characterized by several features:

  • Swollen eyelids
  • Bags and under eye dark circles
  • Small white spots and
  • Bumps on the chin.

It’s thought that lactose intolerance contributes to the cause. An intolerance can affect the immune system leading to inflammatory responses in the body. So the result is puffy eyes and under eye bags. Dairy is also thought to increase the production of sebum (oily secretions) leading to acne. Additionally, hormones in milk may result in more inflammation including premature skin aging.

If you suspect you may have Dairy Face, consider that your milk or cheese addiction may be the cause. You can try cutting out dairy entirely, as many people do. There aren’t any major risks associated with eliminating dairy from your diet as long as you follow healthy eating principles for most of the time. And calcium? The daily recommended allowance isn’t as high as many of us assume and can be obtained through eating foods such as fish, beans, kale, spinach and hummus. If you have concerns, speak to your physician.

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!

Your deodorant is actually miraculous! I’ve tried every kind of deodorant before with varying degrees of mediocre success. Yours manages to actually work through Barre fitness classes and in my office otherwise called the boiler room!! I will definitely be buying more.

I love, love, love Apothekari deodorant! I am allergic to anti-perspirants. I have spent years trying to find a product that works, especially in the hot climate here in Arizona. This deodorant not only works, but keeps me fresh and odor free for over 24 hours! The grapefruit ginger fragrance is lovely and subtle. Thank you, thank you!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Apothekari! A is for Anti-Aging Retinol Serum has changed my skin. I suffered from adult acne and I have not had a single pimple since I started using this Ah-mazing serum. Not to mention how firm and bright my skin is. And Made in Canada! It’s the whole package!
