#3368555 Vitamin C, Zinc, Cod Liver Oil, Acv

Posted by heyybrighteyes on 23 July 2013 - 02:34 PM

I wanted to make a topic of all of the things that have made a drastic improvement in my scars AND red marks.

I had been taking Zinc and Cod Liver Oil pills for a while but not consistently.

I'm trying out the Paleo Diet and read in the book the suggested supplements and they were: Fish Oil, Zinc, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.

All of which are very beneficial for the skin.

And Vitamin C seemed to be my personal missing link, as soon as i started taking 1,000 mg/day (500mg in the morning/500mg at night) my scars started filling in noticeably and continue to do so, and I've only been taking all of these vitamins/supplements consistently for 2 weeks.

I also apply Apple Cider Vinegar (followed by the taping method) as a toner which for me helps combat break outs and lightens red marks.

I hope this helps anyone out there.

I'm a firm believer in healing from the inside and this new routine has only further supported it.

I'd like to mention that I eat a lot of fruits and foods with natural Vitamin C but sometimes that isn't always enough for the body. (Same applies to Zinc and Fish Oil, in my case)

I hope this helps even just 1 person smile.png




#3332073 Makeup With The Regimen

Posted by heyybrighteyes on 09 March 2013 - 03:26 PM

i've been using neutrogena healthy skin

its pretty sheer! but buildable and doesnt clog my pores

it can be dewy so its best to set it with a powder.

 

probably my favorite though is maybelline superstay

stays on all day, satin finish without a powder, covers EVERYTHING.

but its thick... and potentially clogs pores but hasnt broken me out

my only real con with it is that the colors dont match me :(

i have to mix it and even then.. it can look a bit orange or pink on me :/

 

i used to use the tinted moisturizer by physicians formula

its really lightweight! it would even out my skin tone nicely but you could still see blemishes

but its good if youre not looking for something too heavy

and you dont need to set it with powder

 

all from the drugstore :)

hope this helps in some way!
