ACV is amazing! I used it a few months ago twice a day and it got rid of all my acne... but then it started coming back a few weeks later when i slacked, and i haven't picked it up since Maybe I should try it again, haha. How is it working for you? I hear it helps get rid of red marks?
Thanks for the response! I thought i was the only one on here....lol.
I am hoping for the best too as it has been a rough year with acne. I am off my topicals and my skin doesn't feel like crap so i am happy about that. I have added ACV as a toner to replace my Acanya but eventually i want to do away with my chemical laden face wash AND moisturizer. My aloe plant came yesterday but i am not going to start using it till after derm visit as i just added in ACV and i want to see how my skin behaves first. Thanks for all the great suggestions. I will be writing them down to possibly try in the future. I am starting to believe like you that natural is the road less traveled but the one that has more long term results.
I will absolutely keep updating as hopefully the advice given to me can help someone else, minus the cost .
How is your acne and how are you treating it both internally and externally?
Ah, my skin is doing amazing!! i updated my log and talked about some added supplements but I'll just copy the basics down here...
Probiotic -- on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and last thing at night
Digestive formula (with enzymes and probiotics) -- after each meal
Liver support pill -- after breakfast and dinner
Multivitamin -- 2 after breakfast and 2 after dinner
Fish oil -- after each meal
Iron -- after breakfast
An adrenal and hormone support pill (it also has b-vitamins, plus zinc) -- after breakfast and mid afternoon
Zinc (22 mg, but the adrenal/hormone support pill has 6 mg so it makes 28 mg total) -- last thing at night
Alkalinizing minerals -- 1 tsp last thing at night with water
Not really sure which supplement is causing such a great change, but now my skin is about 98% clear.... people are commenting on how great it looks, which has NEVER happened before in my life I'm shocked thb, because I never knew the natural route really would work for me. But yeah. I'm really happy(:
How is your acne doing -- any good changes? I really hope the natural route works for all of us!!
I saw on your signature that you're doing the paleo diet... is that working for you? I'm doing some research on it and it looks really good -- is it the diet your naturopath suggested? My naturopath keeps going on and on about the benefits of the blood type diet, so that's the one I'm doing, hahah. Victoria's secret model Miranda kerr, who has the most beautiful skin ever, says she follows that diet, so that was a HUGE incentive for me to follow through with it, loll(; I hope everything is going well!!
My acne is ok - still breaking out so only time will tell. The good news is that my dryness from Acanya is going away and my skin without acne is smoother. So far, i like ACV - it's simple to use and doesn't irritate my skin. Your diet sounds stellar so let me know how it working out for you. Just out of curiosity, how 'bad' was your acne/what type of acne do you have. My acne is mild/moderate (at times) and EXTREMELY persistent. My worst areas are the chin and mouth. Any before and after pictures?
