In Topic: Really Oily Skin?

It could be a bit of both. The BP is definitely stripping your skin of its natural oils, which in turn tells your body to produce more oil. The skin has a natural acid mantle the maintains a protective barrier, proper pH, and other natural factors that the skin needs. When you strip that away, you cause stress and imbalance to the skin. BP can be beneficial, if used in moderation, and usually as a last resort. Look for a gentle skin care routine that will remove excess oil without stripping the skin. Good luck!

In Topic: Waxing While On The Regimen

Ask your esthetician to use hard (stripless) wax. It is much gentler on the skin. Or you can ask her to apply a very thin layer of oil before applying soft (strip) wax. This can prevent the wax from adhering if too much is used, but a very small amount will allow the wax to pick up the hairs while providing a skin barrier to prevent irritation.

In Topic: Fish Oil Good Or Bad?

My skin has always been better when I am taking fish oil.

In Topic: Enema!

23 July 2013 - 10:32 PM

I have done various juice fasts and one including enemas. What I've found is that people look to a fast or detox as sort of a "quick fix" that can yield instant results. I never experienced results like this. In fact, I usually gave up on most fasts by day three because I did not see immediate results and I lost interest in it. I do think fasts or detoxes have a place and are useful. But I think for skin health and improvement an overall lifestyle change is necessary. You need to be willing to implement healthy diet changes that will be ongoing. That's how I've seen the most results. Best of luck!

In Topic: Vitamin E?

I think E would be a better one to focus on as a supplement- it is great for the skin but I wouldn't use the oil itself directly on acne prone skin. It is better for a dehydrated, aging skin. Internally, however, it has many health benefits and I would first look at natural food sources like seeds, nuts, and leafy greens before using a pill form.


Topically, you'll see better results for acne prone skin with vitamins C and A. Here's a link to my favorite C Serum- works wonders for the skin.



Good luck!
