Tried and True on going Solutions that Keep my Severe Acne Away
Tried and True on going solutions that keep my severe acne away:
Toothpaste: A dot of toothpaste on the affected area keeps raw pustules at bay and from getting worse. I have seen visibly clear skin results the next day.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Just as you have your usual water bottle. I add about 2 tablespoons of acv to my water and carry on the go. Exercising to the point where your skin sweats helps as well. I have noticed my complexion looks clearer over night. This acts as an internal cleanser. But I wouldn't use acv more than 5 days straight as it is highly acidic.
African Black soap: I wash my face with African Black soap once a week to keep impurities away, particularly 3 days after exfoliation. I exfoliate twice a week. My skin feels absolutely clean and well conditioned.
Rose Water: After washing my face, I tone with Rose Water and have noticed a reduction in the appearance of my pores. Twice a day.
Home Made Peel: Done on Sundays and Wednesdays. I have used Olive Oil on my face and massage into my pores for about 5 minutes. Then splashed with water. Then add baking soda and massage a little rigorously. Then rinse. This acts as a microdermabrasion peel, or so I have read. The skin feels raw for about less than 24 hours. I haven't noticed an immediate difference but over time I believe acne scars will look a little faded. I definitely won't do this if I have a break out as this can encourage bursting pimples and scarring.
Vitamin E: The clear, chunky kind in a bottle is what I usually use every night on my face. Massaging into skin rigorously and leaving on throughout the night into morning. Every Night.
Since my acne acts up monthly, I believe the source of my acne has nothing to do with my diet or stress. Contributions to my break outs include unclean hair in my face and hormone irregularities monthly.
So the next plan that I'm going to try, to get to the bottom of this, is to do a parasite/ worm cleanse to kill worms internally. (4 tablets a day for 6 days)
Then do an internal cleanse to get rid of bacteria and clean the impurities in the blood. (tea)
Then do a purification to put back friendly bacteria into the body. (tea)
Then do a liver cleanse. (caplets)
Wish me luck!
