Working as a model, Alexander had found her skin problems a real worry. With auditions and photo shoots to attend, she never expected to be getting acne outbreaks in her 20’s and had battled through various prescription medications from the GP to help manage the problem. After trying topical and oral medication, eating a healthy diet and taking contraceptive medication to see if it helped, she was still having terrible outbreaks, which caused her to suffer with anxiety and lack of confidence. Alexander read about the link between lactose and skin condition and decided to take a test. Her results proved that lactose and cheese was a problem. She cut this out her diet and swapped to nut milk (which she said is high in calcium) and avoided cheese, choosing chicken or fish. Her skin cleared up within 8 weeks and she found her occasional eczema on her arms also stayed away.
