re-posting now that i figured out where this post would be most effective. lol.

 

 

this is what i did to reduce my previously angry acne...

 

 

researched whole food ways to nourish myself

 

was a plant-based eater for 4 years - during that time i completed a few raw food cleanses with herbs that were meant to cleanse and support various organs

 

re-introduced animal based foods that are wild | organic | pasture-raised (salmon, eggs, sardines, tuna, ghee)

 

began to enjoy nude sunbathing to assist my low d levels

 

made self-pleasure more of a focus

 

stopped using soap on my face and switched to chickpea flour mixed with clay

 

use low comedogenic rated oils on my hair and skin

 

saw myself as lovely regardless of what my skin was doing because i am

 

began to engage in weekly movement of some kind (belly dance, african dance, or weight lifting)

sounds like all great things regardless of improving your acne!  how bad was your acne to begin with?

yes, yes. my acne got to the point in which it looked pretty severe (cystic acne).

Weekly?  Do something daily.  And walk as much as possible.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

i am thankful for doing something weekly. weekly meaning, once every other day.

 

walking is fine, yet i enjoy doing what i mentioned.

 

it's about enjoyment for me.
