In the procedure of never giving up, I FINALLY figured out what works to keep my skin clear. Sharing about my skin struggles is nothing new, and I understand many of you can relate. For the first time ever, I’ve a positive romantic relationship with my epidermis. What worked for me personally is a mixture of things, not just one thing.
It has nothing to do with supplements (except maybe high-quality probiotics as I usually recommend those for epidermis health… clear skin begins in the gut) because this is way bigger than one magic tablet. Trust me, I’ve tried each and every tablet and health supplement out there from Accutane, antibiotics, DIM, milk thistle, zinc, adaptogens, apple cider vinegar… the list goes on and my loan provider statements can verify. I won’t even list the hundreds of products I’ve tried since junior high that gave me high hopes but never resolved the actual problem.
- 2 Airbrush Tanning Appointments (Single or Double Coats)
- American Saddlebred Museum
- 5Time to investigate your skin on your face
- Use it evenly on the facial skin then wait until dried out and wash using clean water
Whether it be a product or a tablet it doesn’t matter, because clear epidermis begins from within. It’s as easy as that. You want it to be one magic fix probably, but acne is more complicated than that. I sympathize if you have or are currently experiencing acne because I understand the internal psychological trauma and aggravation it can cause, and how difficult epidermis can wash any even the tiniest sliver of self-confidence. You’re so shy Shannon! UGH. I’ve always been shy, probably due to too little confidence that is due to my problematic epidermis which started back in fifth quality.
I didn’t want one to look within my oily zit-ridden face so I was quiet to be able to prevent conversation or judgement. In high school, I would visit my dermatologist twice per month for painful extractions that I would cry through each and every time. Eventually, she suggested and qualified me for Accutane at age 17. One of the requirements is usually to be on contraceptive because Accutane causes major birth defects, and that means you can imagine how bad it was.
After taking Accutane for 6 months, my skin cleared up and stayed fairly clear throughout university until age group 25 once i stopped the contraceptive pill, proceeded to go vegan and began this blog… my skin went bonkers. Worse than before and I was back at square one ever. I’ve been on a fresh holistic skin healing journey since ever, and here I am at 29 years old.
While my skin isn’t perfect, it’s finally clear and that is a HUGE fulfillment, considering much of my 20’s were accompanied by blemishes that wouldn’t go away. I’m writing this and that means you don’t have put your system through severe medications or waste materials a lot of money on products and doctor trips that do nothing.
No you need to suffer from the confidence-sucking and psychological pain that is acne. All I understand is this: I’m the largest advocate for stopping glucose now and wish I needed done it faster. Now, I don’t suggest less sugar, I whatsoever suggest no glucose, for at least a month or much longer. Yes, its very difficult at first and it’ll feel like you can’t eat anything you normally eat (because sugar lurks in everything).
It sounds crazy and intense and you’ll most surely experience withdrawals that can make you feel such as a drug addict, but thats because sugars is more addictive than cocaine. I had written a whole post about giving up glucose and the alternatives I use but after the habit is kicked by you, you won’t desire it like you used to and also control yourself you’ll, believe me. I avoid sugar now because clear skin and good health is more important to me over time. Quitting glucose was the hardest part of the process, but it provides the most prize.
If you have jawline acne that won’t go away like I did, stopping glucose might be the BEST answer for you, together with a healthy diet plan of course. Sugar sneaks its way into everything which means you must take a look at every ingredient label. My suggestion is to eat real entire foods that don’t come in a package and don’t have an component label! Organic fruit is okay, but stick with dark berries, apples, pears and lower glycemic fruits for the first month. And don’t overdo it on the fruit.
Have berries in your morning hours smoothie and an apple with uncooked almond butter (no added sugars) but you want to fill up on greens and veggies and healthy fats more so than fruits. No refined glucose, no honey, no maple syrup, no agave, no coconut sugars, no alcoholic beverages (!!), at least until you’ve kicked the glucose habit.
