I know we are many out there suffering from the unwanted bloom in our skin and it does not only have to be in the face but can also be other places on the body. Those of you who know this knows exactly what I am talking about, yes it’s the famous acne problem we all wish did not exist and if only there was a magic pill that could just make it go away.
I have had acne, blemishes, black and white heads and oily skin since I was 13 years old and now almost 30 years later I still suffer from what is called adult acne. I know most people look at me and say, you have great skin and I don’t see any acne on you! Of course, I have been having a long and intensive skin care routine for almost 30 years trying to battle this annoying problem and make-up certainly also helps a lot. But underneath all this work there is still an unwitting bloom wanting to arise every single day and the daily fight is on.
I don’t even remember what it’s like not to have acne or blemishes in my face, at first we all hear it’s in the teen years quite normal and I was really looking forward to it disappearing once I hit the early 20’ties but that did not happen. I also noticed how my diet made a huge difference in my skin and anything like chocolate, candy, soda, chips, fried food, fast-food and alcohol was like poison or a super food for acne.
Today after many years of daily 2 times a day skin care routine, diets, work outs, doctors advice and countless of product trails to find the best in the fight against acne I would say I have found my recipe to combat my acne.
For diet I stay clear of dairy because I could see such a difference in my skin and I have also limited my intake of gluten as I have become very sensitive to gluten over the last 10 years. I would actually say I am quite close to being gluten intolerant because it’s just gotten worse over the years and I get completely bloated and looks like I’m 9 month pregnant and about to give birth. Anyone suffering from bloating knows what it’s like. Just horrible and the pain in the stomach is just as awful as the bloat.
Work out is another important point in battling acne because it’s so important to get rid of any excess fat and get the blood circulation going on the body so it can better get rid of the toxins the natural way and not out through the skin. Also, remember to stay hydrated and drink 1,5 to 2 L of water every day, it really makes a difference in the skin and you will see it. Remember to stay away from any kind of juice, sweet drinks, energy drinks, sodas and limit the intake of alcohol. As the saying goes, you are what you eat and drink!
Lastly the daily skin care routine is so so so important and I literally cannot live without my morning and evening routine. I thought years ago I had finally found the best skin care products on the market by our Danish spa guru in Hollywood, Ole Henriksen and I loved using his products just until one day I meet this woman in Copenhagen who wanted to introduce me to this skin care brand I had never even heard of before. I was quite skeptical because I already know and had tested all products on the market from the different stores, so I didn’t really listen much to what this woman was saying about this online American brand.
Still today I am so thankful and grateful I met that woman who introduced my to Nu Skin and for acne skin the skin care line Clear Action, acne treatment system. I decided to give these products a try to prove to her that my own Ole Henriksen products from Hollywood were much better but I was so stunned and could not believe that the Clear Action products gave me better results and at an even cheaper price. Even my mother noticed the difference in my skin, I live fra away from my family so I don’t see them often and I remember my mom making this comment one time I was home visiting for holidays, that my skin looked better and I had actually noticed it myself and the only difference was the skin care products I was using.
So, to anyone battling acne or any kind of blemishes I can only advice you to try out this amazing set of products. It works and it gives you results, that is a promise. It’s any easy daily skin care routine with a facial wash, tonic water and a day and night gel. I must say the night gel is my favorite, it works wonders on your skin over night when you are far asleep dreaming and you wake up feeling so good about yourself 🙂acneacneproductsacneskinbeautyblackheadsblemisheshealthyskinlifestylelooksoilyskinresultsskincareskincarebloggerskincareproductsskincareroutineskincaretipsskintypetreatmentwhiteheads
