I don't see my dad that much but when I did the other day I noticed that his skin is not great, my mum's seems ok but i think she wears foundation. My own skin is not great also, quite a few bumps and spots which don't really bother me too much but the general skin quality seems low, it's kind of uneven and makes me look a bit ill. My brother also has bad skin but I'm the only one who eats paleo
So I've been paleo for a while though not entirely strict yet I've seen no improvement whatsoever in my skin, I take a multivitamin without iron but with zinc, I moisturise with olive oil now and again and that works well, i do a sort of scrub with sugar and olive oil and that seems to help a little and generally leave my skin alone but it doesn't seem to make any difference what I do.
So can diet and lifestyle ever overpower genetics? If I am perfectly healthy (which I'm not necessarily saying I am) why can't I have good skin? even if I had the perfect diet (for me) and perfect lifestyle/exercise etc can I ever 'beat' the genetics?
