View Full Version : Skin Feel Weird?

This might sound strange, but the last couple of days my skin on my face and my stomach has felt really weird, almost like rubber or something. It feels that way on those places, i.e., my face under my chin feels like rubber when i smile. That location feels weird...I am not saying that when I touch my face it feels rubbery...
Is this normal? I don't know if I am describing this feeling right...but if you have experienced this you might understand. Is it possibly because I am losing weight so quickly???

YEP, when I started raw, and dropped a bunch of weight, 40 pounds in as many days, I felt like I would walk, and it took a couple seconds for my skin to catch up with me.
it was really weird, but it is because our body is losing fat, and our skin needs to catch up, also, it may be because you aren't drinking enough liquids, we need about a gallon of liquid a day, not water per se' but fruits and leafy greens and liquid foods.

I also felt like that but after I started eating avocado and flax seeds it went away. I think I was not getting enough oil. I also started moisterizing my face at night.

It's just kind of driving me crazy. I was in a meeting at work today and I felt like my skin was seperating from my face.
I think it is probably because I am losing weight so quickly.
I never thought I would ever ever ever EVER say this in my entire life here on earth, but is there a way to slow the weightloss down so that my skin can catch up??? Maybe if I drink some juice it would help--more calorie dense...??
I will definitely try eating more leafy greens and avacodos. I am eating tons of fruits, but should probably be eating more of the greens and oils. (I am eating the greens and avacodos, but not until the evenings--I crave fruit all day long...)
Before increasing the calories I think I will try your suggestions, and start moisturizing my face and stomach a few times day.
Thanks so much for responding on this. It sounds like such a trivial thing...I am not struggling with craving SAD food like a lot of others, but this skin things drives me nuts. I feel like screaming sometimes... :eek:
