My New Regime

After a failed attempt with Saw Palmetto (for acne & facial hair;result: disaster zone), birth control (Ocella for 3 days, I broke out immediately), Retin A (peeling, redness, sensitivity and even worse with Differin), Minocycline (it's just okay, but someday the body will resist), No more vitamins and herbs, such a waste of money -except L-lysine (helps my skin heal quicker, its awesome, and juicing (ahhh juicing ...juicing WORKED!)

My skin never looked better. I first tried fresh juice in high school when my mother opened a health shop, all the free juice I wanted for a year or so. I bought my own juicer last month. My problem area is my forehead, severe congestion, under the skin. Its just the buildup of dead skin cells and oil, and around hairline/jaw cysts. Cutting out the excess sugars (goodbye red vines, gobstoppers and peanut M&MS) and adding veggies and fruit drastically can improve your skin, just as it did mine. I chose beets (detoxes-I put this in every drink!But don't over do it, it can be toxic if too much is ingested), ginger (perfect for a cold or tummy ache) and others listed below.

I made my own brightening/lightening serum, moisturizer as well, because everything clogs my pores. Major difference =)

My favorites:









And lots of smoothies, vanilla yogurt, bananas, blueberries, strawberry, flaxseed, oranges...mix fruits with veggies if you want something sweeter. I bought a set of maybe 12 mason jars at walmart for $9 and juice everything I need for a week. I should have done this a long time ago.

I will continue with this regime:


simple basic skincare, Clarisonic +Andalou Natural kombucha cleanser

tea tree oil as "toner"

sodium pca moisture

my homemade lighten/brighten serum

Formulating a spf right now

my homemade sulfur brighten/lighten mask weekly

Manuka honey mask weekly

Green tea in the AM only

As for the excess facial hair, I am going to a few more consultations for laser hair removal. I'm done with folliculitis and ingrown hairs.
