A New Less Harmful Way For Clear Skin And A Better You

Hey loves, Aloha, hope everyone is enjoying the new black water dragon year!!! Here is a little intro for those who don't know me: I am a 27 year old female who has struggled with hormonal acne since adolescence. The acne got worse in my 20s. Huge painful, cysts concentrate on my jawline and neck area. I have battled acne before using supplements A, B, C, E, MSM, but the ABCE helped most, increase water intake, and going cave man. BUT its awefully hard and expensive. I've no

Inside And Out: What Has Helped Me...

Aloooohaaa all, Just a summary of what i have found and what has recently helped very much!!!!

The Wonderful Garlic

Aloha Peeps, (Read this whole thing before trying it...) So although lifestyle changes are the utmost effective way to deal with acne (remember it is not a disease but a symptom) sometimes we still get those nasty pimps from time to time. Also sometimes changing our diet creates an initial purge causing anxiety and more crying spells as you recite Disney's " i'm a monster"...Just me? Oh well now you know. Well good thing you stopped here because after trying many OTC, Prescription, and n

The alpha and omega to your problems!!!

So i've perused the blogs, websites, health books, etc and came up with these conclusions: 1. if you are too lazy to change your overall lifestyle, like me sometimes (diet, exercise, postive thinking, etc) go for supplements 2. What supplements: Vitamin A: cell turnover, exfoliant, healing, oil control Vitamin C: elasticity, cell protector, fights/reverses damage Vitamin B: oil control, mood, overall health Vitamin E: healing, moisture Zinc: immune, healing these vit

LETS ALL HELP EACH OTHER OUT

Acne is caused by many different things. We should not try to blame one thing because thats just not how the individual body works. We are all different, therefore not everyone will experience the same problems. A bone can be broken by many different means, but the presentation is still the same...This is important because the root of our problems will determine the best treatment. If someone is breaking out because they ate oranges that is completely different from breaking out because of a

Coconut oil

I wish upon a star for some clear skin without going so far...I suffer from hormonal acne. My type is a result of excess testosterone which tends to get converted to DHT by the 5-alpha..blah blah blah enzyme. DHT not testosterone is the culprit. BAD BAD DHT!!! So what am i supposed to do. Here is a list of things that have been researched and that supplement (now not cure, but aid in the acne treatment): 1. exercise: de-stresses (certain stressors imbalance your bodies processes and

Watch out for zinc

Zinc is definitely a miracle cure. it has helped my acne many times. It supports the immune system and a DHT enzyme inhibitor (DHT causes acne for many, there are different causes make sure you know yours before treating). Anywho, you have to take it in super high doses to work. Well remember the old saying "everything in moderation" well that definitely applies here. Zinc will work but then the high dose will eventually lead to side effects (hairloss, immune system chaos). So every

Chin and Jawline cysts and regular pimples

So been going to ex-bf drama...lots of crying+not eating healthy+not drinking enough water+not taking supplements=major cysts on jawline and chin.... so heres the breakdown, when you cry prolactin the stress hormone also responsible for lactation goes in overdrive. Prolactin increases the production of 5 alpha reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT which is what causes acne!!!! Zinc has been known to inhibit this enzyme! which explains why i never break o

Chin acne

Ok so its been like 3 years since my last post. Been doing ok. My face is 100% clear when i stick to a holistic treatment. Meaning just eating my daily value of the right foods. But do not get me wrong for individuals prone to acne you can't follow the food pyramid religiously.. For some you will need to cancel the dairy and wheat. Stay away from fricken Mcdonalds!!!! My current status is my chin has blown up like it did three years ago. I always break out in cysts and multiple white he
