View Full Version : I declared war on acne!
10-13-2011, 07:39 PM
So I'm mostly raw again (about 80-100%) and I'm curing my acne. I already have some strong visible results by just eating delicious raw veggies and fruit, but I also wanted to do something "extra" to boost my healing process. So I'm adding fresh garlic into my salads, take MSM and make turmeric face masks daily. Do you have any other tips, suggestions that would help me get the old glow back ;) ? Oh, and I rub some coconut oil on my skin as well...
Cheers guys for any info!

So I thought I will maybe post some updates and results in this thread about my health/skin situation. It's been only just a few days of msm supplements and turmeric mask + of course raw foods, but I see improvements already. In the recent, let's say, week - I only observed just a few new breakouts, which might be due to some stress at work plus detoxing from msm. Also, the hyperpigmentation and scars are fading and are not so angry-looking. I will keep you guys posted on my results, and maybe post some photos of before and after soon.

I do not have any tips or advice for you because this is also an area that I want to look into. I have noticed my skin has definitely improved since adding a lot of raw foods into my diet, and I also noticed that when I'd slip up and eat something SAD the next morning I could REALLY see it in my face... such as puffy, dark eyes, and oily uneven skin. Juice has also been helpful to me becuase when I am dehydrated my skin looked worse, and the extra fluids plus the wonderful nutrients equals more beautiful skin.
From what I am reading from most of members here the big changes in skin occur when going 100% for a long period of time.. getting thru detox completely and then the glowing skin shines through. I will have to experience this for myself but if you find anything else that works well for you please share and let us know.
Also Ive heard of using msm for joint and muscle support but never learned about using it for skin issues. This is interesting....

Hi BlackKat, thanks for replying to my thread :) Yes, I can agree with other members' comments that going 100% raw really does make a difference in your skin - I actually have been raw for almost 2 months last year (then Christmas came and you might know what happened) and that helped my skin tremendously!
I have researched msm and read countless posts on different forums, and most of the guys taking this supplement got some great results from mostly cleared up to 100% clear from acne.
I agree with you about juicing - it's great, especially green juices help your body and complexion, but I even noticed that when I drink an adequate amount of water, it seems to help as well with healing up.
I will certainly keep you posted about other observations and maybe other ideas to help us out! :)
take care now!

Hello, so this is another beautiful atumn morning... and my skin is looking better and better :) It seems my msm and turmeric face mask regimen (along with raw veg and fruit of course) is working! I can report I have no more new breakouts, and just a couple pimples on my face, chest and back which are all healing up. Also, the hyperpigmentation is gradually receding, so I'm pretty happy about the results so far. And I don't think it's even been a week! Yay!
