Things are improving I see! For the mask, I usually use about a quarter to half a tbsn of chlorella, same amount for spirulina, and 1-2 tbsn of oatmeal powerder. I add just enough water to where the mixture is slightly runny, but more thick than runny so that it'll adhere to your face. Glad you adjusted to the taste of the algae, it certainly took me some getting used too
I've been doing the mask for about 3 days now, pretty big difference in terms of a healthy glow. I forgot how fast PIH and actives heal with this mask! I'm thinking about modifying the recipe and adding some clay for an overnight spot treatment for actives, I'll let you know how that goes. Lately I've ditched spot treatments just because of the hassle and overall mediocre results.
Definitely let me know how that goes! My spot treatment (derma e very clear) had been working really well at first but isn't as effective now that I've been using it for over a month. I'm going to try out your mask recipe tonight, I've been just using moisturizer + spirulina and chlorella but anything with less ingredients seems appealing to me. Especially with oatmeal!
Wow your skin is looking great! Absolutely glowing. You must be so pleased.
Thanks! You just made my week . I am really proud of my skin now, although it's been a lot of work. There's still a little ways to go but I'm happy there's been such good progress.
I've been trying to eat generally healthy but the leftover halloween candy keeps tempting me.. We didn't have very many kids come to the door, so there's so much candy leftover. I've indulged a bit, but my skin isn't covered in cysts like it usually would be, thank you spirulina + chlorella. My eczema is also slowly going away, I'd read spirulina and chlorella could help with that too. I'm happy because now I don't need steroid creams to clear it.
From not eating basically ANY junk while I was on my diet, no refined sugars and added salts I can't even imagine eating some things. The idea of a veggie burger and fries from Harvey's makes me squirm now, all that oil and salt and fat. I couldn't imagine putting that into my body. I also don't crave salty food the way I did before. Sugars is a different story, I lovee chocolate still, but once it's lout of the house and not tempting me anymore I'll be a lot better.
