like I mentioned a few days ago, I wanted to give an update on how my skin is doing. how my adult acne is doing. is it getting any better? how am I doing emotionally? am I doing anything different? etc. has my adult acne improved since all my dietary changes from a few weeks ago?
I think so! fingers crossed that it stays this way. that my face continues to improve each week. I pray that it does. I am still learning. so as of now this is where I am. my clear face journey continues…
since the last time I shared all my issues with acne/pimples, whatever you would like to call it, I am doing much better!
it has taken a very long time to get where I am today. it was no over night success.
more like a few weeks even months to get major improvements with my skin. it was hard at moments not to give up, but with a great support system (thanks Michelle and Gary) I was able to keep going. and thanks to all of you for giving me the strength and encourage to keep going!!
I did a little video of discussing some tips of how I cleared up my acne. my tips for acne free skin! enjoy.
as I mentioned in the video we are eating no grains, the only thing that we are having that is a grain is our brown rice protein powder. but besides that we are having no grains.
basically I am still doing my doses of Omega 3’s along with more water (instead of 8-10 cups, now doing 10-13 cups) with my MSM powder in it. all the supplements, like holy basil and ashwagandha, are finally working. meaning that I feel like they have really helped with my emotions and stress. plus taking a new supplement, recommended my a few readers (thank you!) called DIM-plus by Nature’s Way, and by taking this pill has really helped too with getting rid of my deep cystic acne like pimples!!! I plan on continuing all my supplements for a little bit longer.
lately I have noticed a few new pimples, but I am trying out some new makeup, so that might have something to do with it. and I had a little too much sugar these past few days, mostly maple syrup. so I am going to cut back again on my sugar. I let my sweet tooth take the best of me and now my skin is telling me that. but I am not stressing just moving on.
I still feel like my hormones are causing issues with my skin. so knowing that, I am thinking of getting another hormone test done through my salvia. there is one test called – one day hormone test – that test the main hormones and all 3 types of estrogen. now just have to see if my health insurance will help cover some.
I still have a lot to learn about my face – what is and had caused my acne. I do believe that all the issues that I have previously mentioned about how to help acne through diet, omega 3, simple and natural face care routine, and hormones all played a role. just as Michelle and I mentioned in our first acne post, there are many causes of acne. and everyone will see improvements from doing different things. I am happy to say I am glad I am slowly finding my answers for my adult acne. and I am here to tell you that you will too!!
remember whatever your health issue is do not give up! I am proof that a positive attitude and fine tuning some dietary things can really make a large difference.
if you suffer from acne or any skin issues for that matter, Michelle and I feel that these tips will help make a difference in your skin.
thanks for listening as always! xoxo
