Keto & my skin

I’ve never had good skin. My skin has always been blemish-prone. I started to feel self-conscious at an early age when so many around me were gifted with clear complexions. A breakout (or five) is annoying enough, but the dark acne marks and scars it leaves behind are often worse. I frequently had deep, cystic acne…

The greatest wealth is health!
