Stay hydrated, plenty of juicy veggies & water.
Note: cucumbers are great for the skin....SILICA!

Yes... it's detox.
In addition to increasing your water intake, you might want to use a facial scrub once a day. This will clean the toxins out of your pores and allow even more toxins to escape. It will also help your skin clear up.

Use epsom salt hot baths, or lock yourself in the bathroom, turn on the shower and faucet to max heat, and take a steam sauna. Bentonite clay masks work also.

Yes this is very normal. Just keep sticking with it. It will clear out. The first time I went raw, I had zits on my face, chest, arms, and thighs. Look at it this way, there are probably milligram amounts of preservatives, drug metabolites, chemical pollutants, and hormores stored in fat. So as you have gone raw, your probably metabolizing more of your fat and the "crud" has no where to go. Furthermore, since you arent orally taking in as much "crud" the body can now devote some time to do some deep cleansing (swifter floor cleaning vs getting down on your hands and knees with a tooth brush). Hang in there, it WILL get better (but might get worse before it gets better)
