For anyone who has struggled with acne, you know it is a nightmare. Not only does having acne cause pain and discomfort but, it's also pretty awful for self-confidence. Millions of people of all ages battle with bad skin, myself included and it wasn't until I began investigating into holistic health and natural remedies that I was able to get relief!
Why do I have acne?
This is a question that most people DO NOT ask themselves! All they know is that they have it and want to get rid of it. This is a part of the problem. By being obsessed with getting rid of the external pimples, bumps and redness we go to extreme lengths to get results. I know, I definitely tried many of the crazy medical solutions out there (and suffered the consequences).
Some of the acne treatments I tried:
Cortisone creams and other expensive toxic topical creams
Chemical peels and treatments
Internal anti-acne medication (that has MAJOR affects on our entire bodies)
Birth control pills “to regulate hormones”
Buying expensive coverup makeups
Although some of these treatments helped while I was using them, as soon as I stopped the problem returned and even got worse. This was just a temporary fix.
I was so desperate to clear my skin, that I missed the most important factor. The WHY. Most people fall into this mistake too, and the real problem is that this band-aid solution model does not address the root cause and does not provide the real solution. So, we must ask ourselves WHY there is a problem in the first place.
What causes acne?
PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Acne is caused by an imbalance of hormones in the body. Hormones are regulated by diet, mindset (stress) and lifestyle. If your diet is full of sugar, inflammatory compounds and chemicals, you live a stressed out life, or use beauty care products laden with toxins... your body, hormones and skin will all suffer (and they will tell you... trust me!).
Acne is due to inflammation on the INSIDE of your body. Your skin is the body's largest organ – so no doubt that it will be affected by what's going on the inside. Acne, eczema, psoriasis, rash, skin tags, moles, etc... these are all markers of something internal.
How do I get rid of acne?
Once I understood why I had acne (little under the skin bumps all around my chin, mouth and forehead) and rosacea, I then understood that the solution was NOT in all the crap my doctor prescribed me; the solutions were to be found in my diet, lifestyle and effective skin care.
How I cured my acne naturally:
It took me a total of 3 months to completely cure my acne! ONLY 3 MONTHS!!! Here's what I did:
- I significantly reduced my consumption of fried foods, sugar and commercial dairy.
- I began exercising 2x/week
- I started doing some light yoga and relaxation
- I adopted RG-Cell Concentrated Restorative Serum and Nanopeptide Complex, as part of my skin care regimen
RG-Cell Concentrated Restorative Serum helped turn on cell support messengers in my skin, creating new stem cells and encouraging the migration of dormant cells to my damaged dermal layers. Nanopeptide Complex boosted the efficacy with a powerful cocktail of amino acids.
I am so grateful for asking the question “Why do I have acne?” for it led me to the knowledge and tools I needed to transform my face, my health and my life.
What a beautiful gift! If you're suffering from acne, know that there are ways to heal without all the garbage creams and toxic meds. Change your diet, change your lifestyle and get started on the right Stem Cell Support!
