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

    Very satisfed

    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.)

    Food That Causes Acne

    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...

    Seeds

    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.

    Fish Oil - Bad For You?

    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

    Fish Oil - Bad For You?

    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 don't take it. The NutrisobA has excellent amazon reviews. I'd like to toss my EFA's if I can....

    Topical Vitamin D

    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, during which time I got Vitamin D drops in an oil base. Out of vitamin serum with dry scabs that weren't healing, I decided to slap some on my scabs and forehead. In the shower, I sloughed like I had used Tazorac or Sulfur Ointment the night before!!!! Totally smooth, perfect moisture balance, shallow-er scabs, and light forehead acne gone. I got the oil and patches on Amazon. I will be integrating it with vitamin A oil, as well, since that helps synthesize D. D is for psoriasis, but it's aiding acne in the same way- by smoothing, hydrating and protecting scaly keratin buildup. If you're depressed , have a poor diet, and have dry acne, you're probably vitamin D deficient- or A deficient and can't process the D. Get a blood test, then google how to calculate good doses to start with. Good luck! bonus: the D patches made my nails insanely long. I've never had long nails before.
