Skin Health from the Inside

Are you dealing with adult acne? I know how you feel, it's annoying, painful and embarrassing and there's not much you can do about it. Here is a trick I've tried in the past and recently started using again.

Take Burdock root and Evening Primrose oil supplements. This is an old Middle Eastern treatment that my mom learned from her coworker. Warning: these pills are giant, not so much fun to take, but it's so worth it. Take 2 Burdock and 1 Evening Primrose every morning and night for the first week. Then cut down to 1 Burdock and 1 Evening Primrose every morning and night. This is hard to keep up with, which is why I stopped taking these supplements for a while, and it takes about 2 weeks to see a change in your skin but KEEP UP WITH IT. Burdock is like a natural antibiotic and it kills the bacteria in your pores, allowing pimples to clear up and Evening Primrose brightens and moisturizes your skin. In addition to the supplements, wash your face twice a day, use an oil free moisturizer and drink LOTS OF WATER!

If you try this, let me know how it works!

Forever loves,

  1. What kind of acne does this help clear up, black head, or those tough white heads that last for months and you can't get ride of?

  2. White heads! I'm not a sufferer of blackheads so I'm actually not sure if it would be helpful. This is really for pretty bad, red, pizza face acne, as apparent in my pictures haha

  3. Awesome I'll have to try it I'll let you know how it works for me. P.s I'm Sara's friend in Columbus in case you where wondering who the random person commenting on ur blog was lolz.
