My New Regime

acne hormonal acne hormones vitamins juicing herbal remedies healthy fruit veggies
After a failed attempt with Saw Palmetto (for acne & facial hair;result: disaster zone), birth control  (Ocella for 3 days, I broke out immediately), Retin A (peeling, redness, sensitivity and even worse with Differin), Minocycline (it's just okay, but someday the body will resist), No more vitamins and herbs, such a waste of money -except L-lysine (helps my skin heal quicker, its awesome, and juicing (ahhh juicing ...juicing WORKED!)
 
My skin never looked better.  I first tried fresh juice in high school when my mother opened a health shop, all the free juice I wanted for a year or so.  I bought my own juicer last month.  My problem area is my forehead, severe congestion, under the skin.  Its just the buildup of dead skin cells and oil, and around hairline/jaw cysts.  Cutting out the excess sugars (goodbye red vines, gobstoppers and peanut M&MS) and adding veggies and fruit drastically can improve your skin, just as it did mine.  I chose beets (detoxes-I put this in every drink!But don't over do it, it can be toxic if too much is ingested), ginger (perfect for a cold or tummy ache) and others listed below.
 
I made my own brightening/lightening serum, moisturizer as well, because everything clogs my pores.  Major difference =)
 
My favorites:
Beets
Carrots
Cucumber
Celery
Spinach
Ginger
Kale
lemon
 
And lots of smoothies, vanilla yogurt, bananas, blueberries, strawberry, flaxseed, oranges...mix fruits with veggies if you want something sweeter. I bought a set of maybe 12 mason jars at walmart for $9 and juice everything I need for a week.  I should have done this a long time ago.
 
I will continue with this regime:
Juicing
simple basic skincare, Clarisonic +Andalou Natural kombucha cleanser
tea tree oil as "toner"
sodium pca moisture
my homemade lighten/brighten serum
Formulating a spf right now
my homemade sulfur brighten/lighten mask weekly
Manuka honey mask weekly
Green tea in the AM only
 
 As for the excess facial hair, I am going to a few more consultations for laser hair removal.  I'm done with folliculitis and ingrown hairs.
