Topics I've Started

Boy Oh Boy Its Been A While

28 June 2014 - 11:48 PM

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've been on acne.org, less than a year I think? but still a while to me.

I didn't leave because I cleared my skin, in fact it was the exact opposite, I kinda lost faith in what I was trying to do and not seeing the results I wanted, and frankly, I just gave up.

But I am now back on track, and working towards achieving a clear face, yet again lol.

And this post is just to say hello, (shout out to wishclean :))

I used to take a lot of different supplements

but now I'm down to just taking Vitamin D3.

and eating as clean, in my opinion, of a diet as I can, meaning no grains, no dairy, minimal processed foods, etc

I am looking into taking a year course towards receiving a certificate as a nutritional therapist, to not only become more knowlegable about health and nutrition but be able to share that with others in need.

So yeah, cheers to good health and clear skin hifive.gif

 


Vitamin C, Zinc, Cod Liver Oil, Acv

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


Thoughts On Veggie Capsules/powder?

23 April 2013 - 06:17 PM

I've been curious about taking Vegetable capsules

but wanted to get a few educated opinions before making the splurge.

Are they a good option?

I already eat a fairly clean and healthy, mostly raw diet

but I don't always feel like im getting all of my daily nutrients.

i did some research and found these.. http://www.amazon.co..._pr_product_top

i'd like some opinions :)

I always drink water a half hour to an hour after meals

Wash my face with African Black Soap

Sometimes I will rub aloe vera all over and let it stay on my face all night
OR
I dab a mixture of honey and cinnamon on any bumps

Masks: (Whenever I feel like it)
Yogurt and Cinnamon and Lemon (few drops)


I just ordered a multivitamin called Clearetto which consists of most of the vitamins I already take in one pill!
Also cause I'm traveling in a week, so it will be  lot more convenient than packing a bunch of pill bottles! :)
Hope it helps!
Has anyone reading taken Clearetto?



So far I've been I've been on this exact regime for about 4 days.
I will post updates, if anything changes, or it stops working.
Thanks! :)
