Acne…trial and error!!

imageSince stopping birth control I have had major issues with acne!! Trial and error has lead me to these simple rules.

1. Take this probiotic I posted a pic of daily and slowly increase toe three times a day. This helps with killing the yeast in your body and creating regular bowel movements to eliminate waste. Β The longer the toxic elements are in your body the easier it is for your face to break out.

2. Drink lots of water.

3. Eat a healthy diet full of whole food and less processed ones.

4. Don’t worry so much about things you can’t change. It doesn’t make the situation different, learn how to see the silver lining in every situation. Less stress = less acne!!

5. Oil cleanse! I posted this one back. This really helps. You will go through an ugly phase! Your face will break out, push through. Don’t use harsh chemicals on your face. It strips the natural oils this creating more oil production.

These are what I use everyday and it is working like a charm. Hope this helps!

Oil cleansing…

First I would like to say sorry for the slow posting. I have recently started running again Β and training for my first marathon! Hope you can understand πŸ˜‰ so down to business. Oil cleansing. This sounds crazy, but I have done a lot of research and this stuff really works cause I am living proof! Once I stopped birth control 2 years ago my body decided to go hay wire and give me acne. In those two years I have tried everything under the sun…Proactiv, natural cleaning solutions, not washing at all and crying at my face in the mirror! Something’s gotta give I told myself. So here it goes!!!!!!!

simple recipes are below for a glowing face that everyone will notice.

Oily: 1/3 castor oil, 2/3 olive oil

combination: 1/4 castor oil, 3/4 olive oil

dry: very small amount of castor oil with almost 100% olive oil

the castor oil is an astringent which cleanse the pores and the olive oil does amazing things like lightening the skin and moisturize. Apply to dry face and message for 2 mins. Use a cloth and get it wet with warm water. Place over face and keep it there until it cools. Do this twice. Don’t wipe the oil off your face. Just dab the cloth. I add a little tea tree oil in mine to help fight acne that wants to ruin my day. If you feeling frisky and want to prevent further breakouts you can put a little tea tree oil on a cotton ball or face pad and rub it on problem areas. Just beware…this stuff is potent. Just try small areas at first before you go all crazy. Do this regimen twice a Day and you will deff see results!!! The best part, it’s cheap! And very very easy.

Just wait till you have someone ask why your skin looks like it’s glowing and I wasn’t wearing a bit of makeup!!!! πŸ˜‰ happy cleansing
