No loose guard!

They stopped by last week.

I was almost celebrating my three-months of acneless existence when they visited.

Knowing they visit as part of the PMS package I had carefully and consistently been following my “detox” routine with water for the best part of the three months, until…


I discovered honey, bread and toasted ground nuts.

And that, my guy, is how I “loose guard”.

Did I know the ground nuts may trigger acne breakout? Of course! But, somehow, yunno, I hoped that… (insert some witless, honey-clouded hopes).

I also became inconsistent with my routine water detox sometime in the past month, and gbam, by the last week of last month they hit me, four at a go.

They’re clearing up, and I have learned an important lesson, two actually:

  1. No loose guard.
  2. Water is so underrated.

Till you read from me again, emem ye ifure. (Peace and serenity).


Your minimalist health blogger.

There are other (obvious and subtle) lessons in this, and it’s yours for the taking. I’d love it if you shared it as a comment, though.
