    What's wrong with it?
    I find my skin is very dry when I'm LL, so it's normal that some change will be noticable.. Don't worry too much about it, if anything ask your LLC about it. ^_^

    it seems just more blemished and 'bumpy' - not dry.
    its nothing horrendous, ive not got big spots or anything just not what expected!

    Could it be caused by anything else? :)

    no don't think so - did wonder if it could it be my body sort of de-toxing? - but have been on LL 7 weeks so thought it might have happened before now

    Water

    Hi Daisy
    I suspect it may be insufficient water. I found I had to drink the old 4litres daily to get the best results all round including skin, hair, going to the loo as well as weight loss.

    Otherwise, probably hormones I'd say. xx

    hi
    i drink about 2.5 water a day plus 2 shakes (approx 750mls) and 3 cups of tea - (approx 750mls) so about 4l

    do you reckon this is enough SB?

    Old rules

    Hi Daisy
    Officially by the new rules it is enough, but when BL and I started a year ago it was 4litres of water PLUS all your shakes,
    which is quite a difference.
    When they reduced the minimum water amount I tried it for a week and a half . The weight loss slowed dramatically, my hair skin and nails all suffered and I felt dizzy. So I went back to the old routine for the rest of the time and I was fine all the way through. Whatever suits you best. I would try and up the water a bit. The flavourings help and I drink warm water too. If it doesn't help you can always reduce it again.Also in the winter we spend m,ore time indoors in dry heated atmosphere which is de-hydrating, so makes sense to need more water.
    Hope that helps Daisy. xxx

    Just thought

    Do you have 2 bars and 2 shakes a day then? I've never used the bars myself.

    Hi. Not sure if mine is the same but for thelast few weeks i have been getting spots at the top of my chest- itchy sometimes and the skin across that area and the tops of my arms feels rough and like i have a rash. I thought it might be hives like some of the others had caused by the shakes (though i have mainly soups)
