Cured acne after 22 years of battle

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I’ve found the real cure of my horrible, painful acne and I would like to share my experience. I want to help as many people as I can.

It’s shockingly simple, free and works miracles!

 

Just a little background:

I’m a 32 year-old female and I have been suffering from acne for 22 years (since the age of 10).

I tried everything: special diets, different facewashing products, visited the beauty salon on every second week, I went from one dermatologist and gynecologist to another, I used to take birth control pills, vitamins, I was on Accutane 3x, I started to ignore chocolate, dairy products, fatty foods, meat, reduced sugar, I used lots of benzoyl peroxide for years and dermarollers… etc etc.

My whole face and scalp was covered by acne and sometimes my neck and shoulders, my back got covered as well.
 

None of those things above helped really, only suppressed the symptoms (the messages of my body) temporarily.

 

1. First piece of the big picture:

I read about the Caveman Regimen. I thought I give it a try. I started it a month ago.

I do the light version: I wash my face with water only once a week and I threw my Fluoride-containing toothpaste in the bin.

I leave my face alone.

Result: my skin became smoother, the big pimples are gone since no chemicals irritate it and the small ones heal/disappear faster. My face is getting clearer day by day. My forehead, temples and T-line is completely clear. Amazing!

 

2. Second piece:

The most important change is that I started to drink more tap water. Yeah. TAP WATER. 2-3 liters a day.

(I noticed that when I’m on water fasting – It means that I don’t eat anything but drink water only - for 1-2 days I don’t get pimples at all!)

I start the day with half liter of water. After waking up I drink it on an empty stomach.

I eat only two times a day: at 10:00 am and 15:00 pm.

I pay attention to drink a glass of water before and after every meal. I drink water right before bed as well, and of course I drink during the day even if I’m not thirsty.

 

This is what happens:

Water helps the body to digest the food, to get rid of toxins, and balances every hormones in your blood. Water affects the entire chemical-producing system, even the brain. So ridiculous how logical it is!!!

The urban legend that the root causes of chronic hormonal adult acne are food allergy and genetics is a big BULLSHIT! :new_smiley_103:

 

Now I eat normal food just like others; I don’t have to give up on anything. I love milk, cheese, pasta, chocolate, bakery etc etc.

Food is still your friend even if it’s made of meat, flour or sugar.

Don’t misunderstand me; I don’t make my body overwhelmed with garbage but I enjoy it with moderation. My body knows what it needs and I trust my body.

 

There is no food intolerance anymore if your digestive system gets enough water to work with and the quality time to rest. When your organs aren’t busy with digesting, they have the energy to restore cells.

 

The simplest rule: the more you eat, the more water you are supposed to drink.

Our body is an intelligent machine, it’s designed to heal and restore itself.

 

3. Third (mental) ingredient of your miracle:

Stop being mad at yourself! Stop hating yourself! Just avoid the mirror.

Your mantra should be: “A few red spots can’t defeat that amazing girl//guy who I am!”

 

I hope my experience helps someone too. :new_smiley_8:

Have a great week warriors! :catdance:  :chuck:

Believe it or not, your body needs water more than Coke and artificial chemicals from the beauty industry.

70% of our body is water.

If we don’t drink enough water, our body won’t work properly.

If you change your drinking and eating habits, I’m sure a few weeks later you will see a big difference. Your body, your skin, your every single cell will thank you the water.

Give it a try, you can’t lose anything. ;)

 

I suggest 2 amazing books that are worth to read:

Your Body's Many Cries For Water by F. Batmanghelidj

The miracle of fasting by Paul C. Bragg

Update:

In the last few month I've found the main cause of my acne:

DIARY PRODUCTS!!!

Since I completely ignore milk, cheese, sour cream, butter and so on, my skin cleared up, the painful red spots are gone. They disappeared totally. But as soon as I eat something like that, there comes the feared outbreak!  O.O

I think it’s because of the growth hormones that these foods contain.

 

In this year I started to use a product on my face; it’s called NeoStrata Lotion Plus (15% AHA)

It helps a lot with hyperpigmentation, this lotion fades the scars week after week.

It works miracles, I am really glad with the result.

That cream saves me lots of money and time because I don’t have to visit the beautician.

 

I do hope that all the information helps others too. :)

I love Neostrata's products. Currently I am using their foaming glycolic wash.
After being a strict vegan for about a year, I got the chance to drink raw grass-fed organic whole milk from a family farm and I decided that it'd be completely harmless- no hormones, it was completely fresh and I knew I couldn't have gotten better quality anywhere else. 30 minutes later, I was throwing up after feeling nauseous... I believe I have developed lactose intolerance.... But yeah, when I stopped drinking milk (long before I became vegan) the big pimples disappeared and got replaced by much smaller ones.
