Our reply

Hi, thank you so much for your warm words! :) You're very welcome! I"m so glad you enjoyed my book.

A number of women have discovered that their bodies change after giving birth. Hormonal changes can darken your skin, and also medications and especially birth control pills can contribute to changes in your skin.

Also, stress and changes to your daily routine can change how your body utilizes nutrients, which can effect your skin.

One question... did your diet change after you gave birth? If so, look and see what foods you are no longer eating, and try adding them back into your diet.

There are two things I would recommend that you consider trying for your diet, if they feel right to you. Everyone is different and unique in what nutrients we need, and also what foods are available to us.

If you are able, I would add more of the following foods to your diet, and see if they help.

1. More vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables. Locally grown vegetables are best for health as they are maximally nourishing to your body which is located close to where the food is. :)

2. More healthy fats and essential fatty acids, also known as EFA's, which are found in foods like:

Flax seeds

This short list is arranged from the most EFA's to the least per serving.

Please let me know how this goes for you. Thank you!
