I’ve been using kava for quite awhile, in fact last month I was using it daily. I’d guess I had 2-3 shells worth per day, and no unwanted side effects. One day, everything changed though. Even the smallest amount of kava (a kavalactone mint!) will give me shedding skin around my upper & lower lips for the next day. Aquaphor helps a little, and I’m giving vitamin E a shot too, but it’s just so weird that I went from being able to have multiple shells a day, to not being able to have even a MINT, let alone a cup, with ANY frequency (I’ve tried 1 day, 3 day, 5 day hiatuses...no luck) without getting rather unsightly shedding, dry skin. Any thoughts on what’s going on?
