    I cleared my worst breakout in a 20 yr acne battle with Rx Chinese herbs.

  1. Very satisfed

    Excellent prevention, used with African Black soap. Buying the bar version and integrating it into my daily routine. Doesn't change oil balance in skin or irritate. Leaving it on for 5 minutes is kind of annoying so I only use it in the bath- but really it's so effective I don't even need it every day (the foam alone however isn't a cleanser.)
  2. Dates give me cystic acne, no joke. Even if it's in small about a smoothie, I'll get a couple deep ones 9 times out of 10. Could be the sugar...
  3. Sunflower seeds break me out, figured this out with my nutritionist/tcm dr. Was also warned away from pumpkin seeds, which I eat less of, but have also triggered breakouts.
  4. I'm insanely triggered by sunflowers seeds
  5. Yes, the link is the blogger's to show where she purchased it. The main link is BeautyEditor. I've gotten a warning for posting a link and have no idea what's allowed and what's not, but if you google the quote, it will come up. I don't have a prostate, so no worries there? ha
  6. from BeautyEditor: "I no longer recommend cod liver oil, or any other forms of fish oil or vitamin A supplementation aside from the Nutrisorb A. That's because they're all high in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which oxidize quickly in our bodies and—no joke—contribute to everything from cancer to hormonal imbalances to inflammation to accelerated aging." Can any nutrition experts throw in their thoughts? I take 3, 6, and 9 -no fish- but I can't say I see a difference when I
  7. SKIP THIS PART IF YOU JUST WANT THE GOODS ON THE VITAMINS: I'd been having such great success with my OTC Chinese herbs, B12 patches, vitamin D megadosing, lactic acid peels, sulfur soap and aloe that I got careless with my diet. I went NUTS on the spicy food and desserts. And ate meat (chicken.) And my face said to hell with that! Jawline and forehead breakout, from adrenal overload and insulin(hormone) surge. And 3 small nodes. So bummed about it I stayed in for 10 days,
  8. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2014/10/11/355126926/frozen-poop-pills-fight-life-threatening-infections My boyfriend, a microbiologist, says this could in theory cure acne. Would you?
  9. Vitamin D. Pearl Powder. Acids (dissolve sebum.) Sulfur. But the best? Spend a week in the desert, if you can.
  10. My acne clears up when I'm sexually active. If I'm not getting any, I'm more stressed and feeling down about myself, and acne happens. Dopamine and seratonin- when you're in love- is good for your skin.
  11. Well these are pretty awesome. Another poster asked me to elaborate on my facial injector (Kim K. also sees him and she has the smoothest face in the world) MD's recommendation for acne. 1.) He agreed with my TCM doc on NO DAIRY NO CITRUS 2) Neutrogena salicylic pads- 4x a day, making it an 8% application 3.) Antioxidant NAC- he prescribes this for his Coolaser patients for healing 4) B5 patches- resolved my last dry spots overnight- people, I'm 100% clear. (I had cheated
  12. Me, too. I tried adding real food and a little wine, chocolate and cheese back into my diet. Three zits. You are most certainly not alone! I've canceled a good 3-4 years of my life collectively due to acne. My botox injector today, an MD (who is also Kim Kardashian's injector,) started telling me to use salicylic acid and take vitamins, cut out dairy and citrus etc. I had to start laughing. He had no idea what I'd been through. So I told him about TCM, Tazorac, Spiranolact
