Q & A

I’m 46 and still get zits on my face now and then.  Can anyone tell me of a good product or maybe some foods to eliminate (besides chocolate)?  I heard hydrogenated oils..found in foods like Doritos and milk can cause acne...dairy is a hard one since I love cheese...

    • I think this happens to women our age because of an imbalance of hormones. Is there a pattern, say during a particular time in your cycle.

      We have an expert here who writes a column I think each week. She’s a pharmacist. I bet she’d have a good solution or some suggestions for you.

    • Cynthia is right.  Hormones wreak havoc with our skin and bodies.  Make sure you are taking a good multi-vitamin that your body is absorbing.  You need wellness from the inside out.  I would look for a pattern as well.  Make sure you eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies too as well as drink plenty of water.

    • I still get them but it’s usually when I’ve eaten my greatly loved chips tongue out that once I start...

      When I am eating healthier (fruits & veggies) I hardly get them.

    • Also, are you taking your makeup off at night before bed? For me, that’s a huge one in terms of keeping clear skin.

      Namaste,

    • If you are breaking out on your jawline, it is hormones.  If the breakouts are sporadic and show up any where, then it’s adult acne.  Chocolate is not going to cause acne so eat away.  Yes you should detox your colon as the toxins in there sometimes, actually many times, expel via the skin.

      I have an awesome product called B‘Bye ~ Anti-Blemish Serum.  It is a natural, herb based product that contains over 12 different sebum reducers, anti-bacterials, and anti-inflammatory ingredients.  It also contains an awesome vitamin A, that our bodies naturally produce, so there is not side effects of flakiness or redness.

      I use it daily and I am 42.  I do not have break outs at all PLUS because of the fact that it contains Retinaldehyde (vitamin A), I have no wrinkles.  I am able to go out in the sun without worry of photo-sensitivity.

      You are more than welcome to look on my website at the before and after pictures I have of an acne patient.

      This product gets rid of acne, prevents scar formation and is an anti-aging product all in one!!!  Check it out and message me with any questions!

      Good Luck!!estatic
