In Topic: Probiotics Destroyed My Cystic Acne

12 December 2013 - 04:40 PM

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?

i don't have much to say about this topic as i eat eggs and don't seem to have issues while eating them.

 

what i would suggest is seeking out devin and his site clear skin forever. i recall reading a free chapter from his book and it seemed very thorough. he's heavily into nutrition and claims to have been clear for 6 years now.

 

may you find what you're seeking in regards to your skin health.
