Water kefir.  Miso.  If you can stomach it, Natto is the best.

 

Thank you.


In Topic: Green Smoothies For Acne?

I think I replied to this thread before stating that I enjoyed smoothies, yet now I've learned that smoothies aren't the best in terms of spiking blood sugar. So, now I simply eat my fruit whole. It's great and it provides me with a fully sensual experience because I'm actually tasting each piece of fruit.

I haven't used hemp seed oil as a cleanser ( I use aloe vera and essential oils for that now). However, I've used Hempseed oil as a moisturizer - applied to damp skin to seal in moisture. By the way, it's listed as a low comedogenic oil so it should be fine to use. https://www.benefici...nic-rating.html


In Topic: Probiotics Destroyed My Cystic Acne

Just wanted to share with everyone how I have been successfully clearing my skin. 

 

First of all, I battled acne through middle school and high school until I went on Yaz. For four years I had beautiful clear skin. Then I had to change birth controls. From the summer of 2012 til the summer of 2013 I went on two or three different birth controls, all which did horrible things for my acne. It was the worst it had ever been. This past July I decided to end birth control and change my diet. I eliminated dairy and gluten and reduced my sugar intake significantly. Only small results occurred, much to my disappointment.

 

BUT, I believe I have discovered the key to curing my acne and that would be probiotics. I use them to my advantage both topically and internally. I drink kombucha every day and take a probiotic supplement a couple times a week while every morning and night dabbing my face with organic apple cider vinegar.

 

My skin reacted almost immediately. Cystic zits simply stopped plaguing my face, like they had been for the past 18 months. I still am getting small zits (they don't even compare to the massive painful cysts that would take weeks to heal) but I have a feeling it's just old shit in my pores coming out. Cannot believe the difference in my skin in such a short amount of time. Every day I look in the mirror and I am shocked to see that no new cysts have appeared. I am SO pleased and I can't believe that the answer for me was so simple.

 

My mom suffered from horrible cystic acne from 21 til her mid forties and I just could not accept that as my own fate. After months of trying different treatments, this one has produced by far the best results and I strongly urge everyone to try at least the ACV! I really look forward to seeing my skin in the months to come. smile.png:)

 

thank you for sharing.

 

what is the name of the probiotic supplement that you use?
