Till my my best friend's wedding. I'm off the internal cleansing and chanca piedra and upkeeping my internals with fiber supplements and a more digestion friendly diet (healthier eating). Other supplements remain the same. It's been about a month now since I've abandoned DKR benzoyl peroxide. My skin is well moisturized now, I sometimes get lazy and go without applying any moisturizer.
I just recently abandoned applying and drinking the lemon juice a few days ago. It seem to have lost it's effectiveness plus I play sports and damn it stings when I sweat. After doing more research, I've come across two new products. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had bought a "get rid of your acne forever" manual over 2 months ago so I decided to look over it again. One product they mentioned was an AZTEC SECRET INDIAN HEALING CLAY mask. I googled it and apparently bentonite clay is a great toxin absorber. You can also ingest the clay and it will absorb the toxins within though the ASIHC website said it's only to be applied as a mask. So I ordered it through Amazon and they recommended it to be ordered with BRAGG APPLE CIDER VINEGAR since the clay powder is mixed with ACV. Also found out that both can be bought at Whole Foods Market or most health stores.
After ordering it, I researched ACV and apparently it has been also noted even on this site to be effective for acne both applied topically and ingested. Something that has to do with the PH balance. I honestly got lazy and didn't want to read the findings behind it, just the parts that said it has worked for many. I got my products on Wednesday, made my first clay mask and have been applying the ACV topically (and ingesting 2 tbsp w/ 8 oz of water. Two days later, my forehead is literally clear and the existing spots/scars have already started to fade. Existing acne is starting to dry up nicely. Again, my face is still kind of horrendous from the last few months of breakouts but I already see a huge improvement, definitely not as oily as I put the back side of my hand against my forehead as we speak (washed my face 7am pst). They recommend the mask to be used once a week but I've used it twice already since I feel like I have a lot of toxins.
It's only been two days, it's only been two days. I see results but I've also read that other folks have broken out considerably after a week or two and then start to get clear. So far, not one new pimple. But then again, that is exactly what happened when I tried to use Murad, really clear and then broke out like crazy. Hopefully the combination of using ACV and the clay will minimize the "break out" whereas others I think are just using the ACV alone.
The cons of this is basically, ACV does smell but I can handle it if it means clear skin.
