If you think acne is reserved for pimple-faced teenagers, you will be sad to know that acne can affect people of all ages. Most people take special care to try to keep acne at a manageable (or nonexistent) level. But if you’re still experiencing breakouts and are waking up with bad acne on your face, you might be sabotaging your skin and not even realizing it.

Beautiful Skin No-No’s

Acne develops when you have a buildup of oil in your skin that allows bacteria to grow and flourish, causing bad acne on your face. We have a tendency to choose beauty products and regimens that make our skin look better, but you could unknowingly be causing more damage. Here are some common acne triggers:

  • Some skin care products are filled with pore-clogging materials – Before putting anything on your skin, be sure to check the ingredients first. Heavy moisturizers containing mineral oil or silicone can actually do more harm than good. These heavy oils have large molecular structures and can’t penetrate your skin. Because of this, they will sit on the surface of your skin all day, leading to more sun damage, discoloration, and clogged pores.
  • Use spot treatments sparingly – Over the counter spot treatments that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide or sulfur can dry out your skin, which causes your skin to produce more oil, thereby causing bad acne on your face. If used too often, they could burn the top layer of your skin making your blemishes look worse. Stick with a mild hydrocortisone anti-itch cream periodically applied throughout the day and cover the blemish with a bacteria-fighting concealer.
  • Your hair products can contain acne stimulating ingredients – Sulfates, heavy moisturizing agents, and silicone from your shampoo and conditioner can wreak havoc on your skin and cause bad acne on your face. Even your styling products can have these ingredients that can cause acne on your body and along your hairline.
  • Be more gentle with your skin – Many people think roughly scrubbing their skin with a rough washcloth or exfoliating scrub will help eliminate bacteria on the skin. But it can actually have the opposite effect. Rough scrubbing can help spread bacteria all over your face, making the bad acne on your face even worse.

Other Acne Simulators

While you can’t control many reasons for breaking out, some of the reasons could be more environmental. Here are some exterior stimulants that could be contributing to your acne problem:

  • Spicy foods – Foods heavy with acidic lycopene (tomatoes and peppers) can change your skin’s pH levels, which in turn can cause breakouts, especially around the mouth area.
  • Cigarettes are bad for your whole body, especially your skin – Every puff on a cigarette decreases the amount of oxygen going to your skin. This can cause breakouts and reduce collagen and elastin, which can lead to wrinkles and large pores. And the carcinogens in cigarettes can dry out your skin. Smoking is bad for your whole body and for those around you as well.
  • Stop picking at your pimples – It’s oh so tempting to give those blemishes a little squeeze and see that puss and oil ooze out of your face. But when you do that, you run the risk of pushing bacteria further into your pores and transferring it to other pores on your skin. The less you touch your face, the less bacteria you transfer to it, which leads to less bad acne on your face. Plus popping pimples can cause scarring and ugly red marks. Just say no and apply SIBU Sea Berry Seed Oil to help accelerate the healing process & reduce scarring.

The Final Word on Blemishes

Acne can be tricky because even when you think you’re doing something right to care for your skin, you could find you’re actually doing worse by it. Finding the right skin care regimen, including SIBUs Facial Care line can help reduce bad acne on your face. Trust us, your skin will thank you for it!

Know Your Acne: Different Types of Acne (and what to do about them)

The pain of acne is real, be it physical or emotional. There are so many acne treatments in the marketplace today that they can be overwhelming. Start by evaluating your skin condition and determining the acne type you have. From there you can review and select the best products for your face acne treatment. Read on for more information that will help you identify the different types of acne.

Causes of Acne

The myths about the causes of acne are some of the most detrimental information circulating about acne, and have been for years. Acne is not caused by eating chocolate. It is not a result of not properly bathing. As a matter of fact, excessive cleaning of the areas inflames the skin and can worsen your acne. The two main factors are genetics and hormones.

Different Types of Acne and What to Do

Acne is such a broad term and such a complicated medical issue, that even defining types of acne can be confusing. They can be categorized as cystic or hormonal, non-inflammatory or inflammatory, graded I-IV based on severity. Let’s keep it simple by using the terms we are all familiar with when discussing different types of acne.

Blackheads

Blackheads appear when there is an open comedo—a hair follicle or pore that has gotten clogged with oil and dead skin. For this acne type, use a gentle cleanser like the Cleansing Face & Body Bar by SIBU. OTC cleansers containing drying agents like benzoyl peroxide can also be used, but may be too harsh and cause further skin damage and not be a good face acne treatment.

Whiteheads

The difference between whiteheads and blackheads is that a whitehead is a closed comedo, where a layer of skin has grown over the clogged pore, while a blackhead is an open comedo. Both are mild types of acne. Use of a gentle daily cleanser will result in fewer whiteheads. Both blackheads and whiteheads are considered non-inflammatory types of acne.

Papules

Papules are the type of acne where you start seeing red inflamed hard bumps, classified as inflammatory acne. As with all types of acne, do not pick at them, or you risk scarring. For this type of acne, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests using a daily cleanser with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. An excellent all-natural alternative is the Cleansing Face & Body Bar by SIBU, followed up with just a few dabs of Sea Berry Seed Oil. It may seem counterintuitive to put oil on your face, but this berry has been used for over 1300 years to improve skin and other health conditions. It softens and hydrates the skin, keeping it more healthy and resulting in fewer blemishes.

Pustules

When the blemishes get a little larger and infected, this type of acne is known as a pustule. When dealing with different types of acne, this is the point where you may want to consult a dermatologist. You may need prescription strength cleansers or creams and gels; however, products rich in sea buckthorn berry are still very effective for this type of acne. Depending on the severity, a dermatologist may also prescribe oral medication, usually an antibiotic like doxycycline.

Nodules

Nodules are large bumps deep under the skin. They are very red and painful. This type of acne will oftentimes leave scars, but with proper treatment, the scars can be kept to a minimum. Nodules will sometimes have to be drained by a dermatologist, and if you suffer from this type of acne, you will certainly need to take an oral prescription to reduce the size and number of nodules.

Cysts

Cysts are a much more severe type of acne and must be treated by a medical professional. Cysts are pus-filled, bright or dark red, and can be very painful. Sometimes cysts must be surgically removed.

Whether you suffer from common acne types (Acne vulgaris) or a more severe type of acne like Acne Fulminans, any face acne treatment you use can be enhanced through the use of products made with sea buckthorn berry by SIBU. See how these people used sea buckthorn products to help treat the different types of acne.

How to Heal Your Skin Faster With Sea Buckthorn

Sea buckthorn has been the secret medicine that ancient Tibetan people have used for thousands of years. For any kind of skin ailment, from eczema to deep burns, sea buckthorn’s healing properties have been used in skincare with surprising effectiveness.

One of sea buckthorn’s best benefits is its ability to stimulate tissue regeneration. From deep cuts to lesions to ulcers, the variety of vitamins helps skin heal itself faster. With powerful antioxidants, sea buckthorn helps skin cells regenerate with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and several different kinds of B vitamins. Sea buckthorn also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and sodium, which are all building blocks of healthy skin.

Healing Burns

Burns are also a major area where sea buckthorn can work is healing properties. Research shows that in studies, skin that had suffered third-degree burns healed much better with sea buckthorn oil was applied to the affected area. Sea buckthorn extract promotes the growth of skin and mucosa epithelial cells that are damaged by burns. When burns are bad enough, skin grafts are required, and sea buckthorn oil also helped the grafts bind with the fascia and make the burned skin heal faster. For decades, the pharmacologists have used silver sulfadiazine to heal burns, but it has side effects. Sea buckthorn has proved just as effective as silver sulfadiazine and has no side effects on burn patients.

Helping with Cancer

Perhaps the most impressive benefit of sea buckthorn is how well is helps cancer patients. Consuming sea buckthorn oil reduces illness due to cancer, and even if you have already been diagnosed with cancer, sea buckthorn can help reduce the effects of chemotherapy. The harsh chemicals used in cancer treatments can often affect skin cells and damage collagen production, but sea buckthorn re-stimulates collagen production to help people heal faster from cancer and toxic chemotherapy sessions. Chemo often frequently damages the digestive tract cells too, and since sea buckthorn is great for calming digestive issues, the extract frequently helps patients who have stomach issues after treatment by healing the epithelial cells in the intestines.

Reduces Wrinkles

If you’ve had skin issues in the past, sea buckthorn can still help. Sea buckthorn increases collagen production to reduce wrinkles, and its high Vitamin E and Vitamin C content reduce scarring. This works on both smaller scars, like acne marks, and on larger scars, such as those from traumatic injuries and severe stretch marks. Anti-inflammatory properties are also a prized attribute of sea buckthorn, which can help reduce eczema and rosacea. Sunburn can also discolor scar tissue, and sea buckthorn can even block UV rays to protect skin that is still healing, which is why it’s an ingredient in many sunscreens.

If you suffer from any skin issues from traumatic injuries, lesions, or chemotherapy, sea buckthorn is a natural way to see significant improvements in the appearance of your skin and your overall dermatological health. Sea buckthorn extracts are the best oils for healing a wide variety of skin issues. You can even get sea buckthorn products that are cruelty-free, vegan, and gluten-free in different amounts for your specific needs.  You’re on your way to health, healing, and beautiful skin!

Looking for Organic Solutions for Your Skin Flaws? Try Sea Berry and PRP Therapy

Written by Guest Blogger, Vivian Tyler

Acne! Breakouts! Whiteheads! Blackheads!

Are you battling these dreaded skin flaws? Know that you’re not alone! Tons of people out there are dealing with the same problem. And, organic solutions may be more effective than chemical creams and lotions.

The American Academy of Dermatology/ Association reports that acne affects around 50 million Americans each year. Typically, close to 85% of teenagers and young adults between the ages of 12 and 24 may get acne. However, older women may also deal with breakouts during various stages of life including pregnancy and menopause.

Check Nature’s Pharmacy for Organic Solutions

The trouble with acne is not simply that it affects your confidence. It can also cause depression and anxiety. Further, the breakouts leave behind ugly reminders that may last you for the rest of your life. Thankfully, nature has the perfect solutions for you that can get rid of the skin flaws – Sea Berry and PRP Therapy. You can use them individually or as a combined treatment system to get the clear, glowing skin you’re looking for. Here’s how.

Sea Berry Can Help with All Your Skin Issues

Sea berry, also known as sea buckthorn berry is a wonder golden berry that grows at elevations of 12,000 feet above sea level. Found mainly in the Himalayas, the berries have been used by ancient Tibetans for more than 1,300 years. Bright orange in color, the fruit is packed with all the essential nutrients that the skin needs to heal and rejuvenate. Most important, it works as an organic solution for the leading causes of acne and helps eliminate the condition.

Acne is mainly caused by the buildup of impurities and bacteria in the skin. Sea Berry products can prevent this buildup since they have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Further, sea buckthorn berries contain vital Omega acids like Omega 7, 3, 6, and 9. These fatty acids promote the growth of collagen in the skin, and nourish and hydrate it gently. As a result, your skin can resist acne more effectively.

 Science Has Proved that Sea Berry Works as an Organic Solution

As tests conducted by the National Center for Biotechnical Information reveal, sea berry contains compounds that are effective in reducing the production of the skin sebum or oil that causes acne. The berry also has organic acids such as quinic acid that work to maintain the ideal pH balance in the skin.

And, that’s not all! Any products like oils and creams created out of sea berry have a longer shelf life and are resistant to any storage conditions for up to 28 days. This factor ensures that the minimum of preservatives need to be added to sea berry products making them the perfect organic solution for your skin flaws.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Works on Acne Naturally

Yet another natural answer to the acne and breakouts is PRP therapy. The growth factors present in the PRP serum work to restore a fresh supply of blood in the skin. This supply brings oxygen and nutrients to the skin and carries away acne-causing impurities and bacteria. As a result, your skin repairs and rejuvenates. And, gets back its lost glow.

In addition, PRP can help you erase the scars left behind by acne. Any marks such as boxcar scars, ice pick scars, rolling scars, and atrophic scars respond well to PRP treatment for acne scars. That’s because the serum has the essential healing elements that can create collagen and elastin in the layer below the skin. When doctors inject PRP under the depressed scars, it creates new collagen that plumps up the skin so that the marks seem to lighten until they are barely noticeable.

 Doctors Source the PRP Serum from Your Blood

PRP therapy is an organic solution for your acne and breakouts since the serum is developed from your blood. Dermatologists harvest a 10ml sample from the forearm and spin it in a centrifugal device. The spinning motion causes the red blood cells and white blood cells to separate leaving behind the plasma. This plasma contains a concentration of platelets and growth factors that your body creates to repair soft and hard tissues.

The only additives used to create the PRP serum are safe to use. They are approved by the FDA as food preservatives. So you see, PRP therapy is completely natural and not likely to cause any adverse effects or allergic reactions. Your body recognizes the serum as its own tissues and accepts the healing.

Use Sea Berry and PRP Therapy as a Dual Treatment Modality

Talk to your dermatologist about the many benefits of Sea Berry and PRP therapy. Depending on the kind of acne you have, you might be able to create a dual treatment modality that heals acne, prevents further breakouts, and helps erase the scars left behind by old acne. As a result, you can have perfect, flawless skin that glows with health and beauty.

Choosing the Right Sea Berry Products for Oily Skin

Sea berry

Sea buckthorn, also known as sea berry, comes from the seeds and berries of the sea buckthorn plant. Although it’s been used for thousands of years, it’s only recently come into prominence in the United States since it’s native to Europe and Asia. It provides a wide range of benefits to the skin, digestive system, and overall health. If you’re struggling with oily skin, here’s what you need to know about this amazing plant.

How to Take Sea Buckthorn

There are 3 basic ways to take sea buckthorn:

  • Oil: Sea buckthorn oils let you make use of the plant in its purest form. They can be taken internally or used topically, although it can be inconvenient if you want to treat a relatively large section of skin.
  • Lotions and creams: These make using sea buckthorn oil more convenient if you want to use it topically. In addition, the lotions may have additional ingredients that can help address your skin issues.
  • Soft gel capsules: If you find you don’t enjoy the taste of sea berry oil on its own, you can simply take a soft gel instead. This is a good way to take the oil for overall health, and it can do wonders for oily skin.

Berries vs. Seeds

One of the important things to realize when working with sea buckthorn is that it actually provides 2 very different types of oils. One type of oil is taken from the berry or pulp, while the other is taken from the seeds inside the berry. While both are effective at promoting overall health, the main benefits of seed oil are external: helping to repair the skin, accelerate the healing process, and helping to eliminate the symptoms of various skin conditions such as acne, rosace, dry skin, and sensitive skin. Berry or fruit oil, on the other hand, has more internal skin benefits. The berry oil is where all of the omega 7 nutrition is found. Omega 7 is the rare fatty acid that’s been shown to provide key building blocks for healthy skin internally. It’s literally feeding your body the nutrients it needs to produce healthy skin from the inside-out.
Seed oil provides more topical benefits for the skin.  It is useful for improving a wide range of skin conditions from acne to eczema.

Sea Berries for Oily Skin

Sea berries have been shown to reduce oily skin by as much as 45%. You’ll often start to see improvement within the first few weeks. As an added bonus, sea berry seed oil won’t dry out your skin like many commercial chemical products designed to treat oily skin. Sea berry seed oil is a natural moisturizer that nourishes and repairs the skin while also providing anti-bacterial properties that can help keep acne under control. Your oily skin needs a balance of hydration and sea berry oils are just the thing to help you achieve it.

The Sea Berry Harvest Begins!

High in the Himalayan desert regions of India and Tibet, sea buckthorn, a thorny shrub dense with bright and bitter orange berries, grows wild like a weed. Scrappy and hard to harvest, sea buckthorn or sea berry is a superfruit and a game changer for beautiful, healthy skin.

SIBU’s Turkestanica sea berries grow exclusively in the Leh & Nubra valleys of northern India where they are harvested during a short 4-6 week period in the early fall.  Turkestanica is the most nutrient dense of all sea buckthorn subspecies due to the harsh environment in which it grows.  The harvest is a time for celebration in these remote villages of the Himalayan Highlands.  SIBU hires co-ops of local village women who hand harvest the berries as it has been done for generations.  Great pride is taken in the commitment SIBU has made to these villagers. Fair trade and sustainable practices provide income for many individuals and families throughout the region.

Almost 90 percent of the world’s sea berry (sea buckthorn) forests are found in India and Tibet.  High altitude, dry heat, severe cold, and hardscrabble soil combine to produce a fruit rich in over 190 bioactive compounds including antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E; fatty acids, flavonoids, and carotenoids; and skin-fortifying trace minerals such as selenium, zinc, copper, sulfur, potassium and magnesium.

Sea berry is considered a miracle fruit because it yields the highest natural concentrations of omega 7s available and is rich in omega 3s and 6s. Unlike omegas 3 and 6, omega 7 (palmitoleic acid), a lesser known omega, is not an essential fatty acid and therefore our bodies do synthesize it.  However, because of our modern-day diets we don’t get enough of the components to make omega 7 naturally.  As we age, our production of omega 7 begins to decrease and the need for it in our bodies increases.

Clinical studies have shown that omega 7, taken internally and applied topically, is an elixir for the skin: It soothes eczema and helps clear up acne; stimulates collagen production, keeps skin firm, aids in elasticity; strengthens hair and nails; and promotes tissue regeneration. It also benefits cardiovascular, liver, and brain function and improves the metabolism.

SIBU’s Omega-7 supplements provide an excellent Vegan source of the omega fatty acids, especially for those struggling with vegan collagen options.  Whether you prefer an easy-to-swallow soft gel or a morning “shot” of  Omega-7 Pure, the benefits of sea berry are certain to give you the boost you need for both whole body health and natural beauty.

Happy Skin, Happy Kids!

Skin Care Products for Children

Kids need safe skin care too…

When it comes to choosing skincare products for yourself, it can be a challenge finding your way around all the nasty chemically-laden products that line the drugstore shelves today.

So choosing skin care products for your children can seem an impossible task. If you want to avoid plastering your own skin in chemicals, then naturally you want to take even bigger precautions when it comes to your kids.

If you head into your local drugstore, you may be overwhelmed by the many options available for kids, but your overwhelm may soon turn to shock when you see the ingredient labels of most of these products.

Children are no exception when it comes to the addition of chemicals to products and these synthetics may only contribute to, or worsen, already existing skin issues.

Fortunately, there are natural options available that will help to protect and soothe your little one’s skin.

Keep reading to learn a little more about some of the most common skin issues children are subject to and how to treat them, naturally.

Eczema

This frustrating condition is extremely common in young children and involves skin inflammation, the most common being atopic dermatitis.

This condition can affect anywhere on the body but is most commonly seen on the face and scalp of toddlers. It’s characterized by an angry red and itchy rash with small dry pustules that only get worse when scratched. Eczema can seriously impair your child’s quality of life so it’s important to nip it in the bud quickly.

Hives

Hives are red welts, caused by chemicals in the body called histamines, as an immune response to an array of various substances such as pollen, dust, pet fur or certain foods or medications, just to name a few. It’s hard to figure out the root cause, but if your child has difficulty breathing be sure to call an ambulance immediately.

Impetigo

Also known as school sores, these pesky blisters are super contagious and are a result of bacteria. They usually appear around the mouth and nose as small, red and itchy blisters that break open to ooze yellow pus and then form a brown scab. They are usually treated with antibiotics, as well as topical applications to kill the bacteria.

Psoriasis

This is a chronic skin condition in which areas of skin become inflamed and red and covered in flaky white skin. This is an inflammatory condition that’s caused by skin cells being produced more quickly than normal and resulting in these raised plaques of skin.

All of these conditions are a result of inflammation and the best way to quickly soothe this inflammation is by applying a topical cream that has anti-inflammatory properties. Our body cream is ideal as it contains our key ingredient, Sea Buckthorn, an absolute superstar ingredient for reducing inflammation thanks to its potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Daily application of our creams will not only help to heal and prevent infection, they will provide instant soothing relief so your little one can enjoy happy, itch free skin.

Our Sea Berry Seed Oil is perfect for more severe cases of eczema, psoriasis or any other inflammatory skin condition. Gently dab some of this wonderful oil onto affected areas. Its naturally calming and healing properties can, in many cases, provide instant soothing relief.

It’s just as important to pay attention to your child’s diet as foods that cause inflammation in the body can cause or worsen these conditions. Ensure your child has a balanced diet with lots of healthy whole grains, fruits, veggies, and fish.

For a delicious and wonderful anti-inflammatory treat, try our Omega-7 Blend. A deliciously fruity and tart nutritious boost that kids love!

And you’ll love knowing they’re getting safe, whole food nutritional support for a healthier body and healthier skin

6 Therapy Skincare Remedies for Dry Skin And Acne


*Video credit – iamvanessae YouTube channel

Everyone has experienced dry, acne problem skin at some point in their lives. It’s embarrassing and unsightly, and in some cases it can lead to further infection and scarring. Here are the top six home remedies to decrease your risk of dry skin and acne.

1. Drink plenty of water

Yes, you’ve heard it before, but by increasing your water intake, you’ll assist your body in flushing out the toxins that you come into contact with every day. You’ll also hydrate your skin, which will help decrease the risk of acne.

2. Try a honey mask

Honey has natural antibiotic properties – that’s a way of saying it’s nature’s tetracycline. Before you go to the doctor to try a prescription antibiotic, try a natural honey mask. Mix 3 parts honey with 1 part lemon juice after gently cleansing your face, and leave on your skin until dry. Rinse with warm water. (don’t forget the Sea Berry Seed Oil)

3. Increase your fruit and veggie intake

Again, you’ve heard it before. Balancing your diet to include fresh fruits and vegetables will ensure that you’re getting all the vitamins essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Vitamin C are just three of these.

4. Try a Purifying Clay Mask

Clay masks are excellent for drawing impurities out of the pores, and controlling excess sebum in the skin, however some of them can be quite harsh and drying. Our Purifying Clay Mask is gentle enough for all skin, thanks to the addition of our key ingredient; Sea Berry, which has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.

5. Sea Berry Seed oil

Sea berry seed oil is a miracle worker for skin conditions. It’s been proven to help clear up rosacea, acne, dermatitis and eczema. It may be difficult to find in stores, so try a product like SIBU’s Sea Berry Seed Oil.

6. Establish a daily routine

It sounds obvious, but establishing a habit of good skin care is critical to the prevention of acne. Wash your face in the morning using a mild cleanser, then apply a toner and moisturizer. Don’t be afraid to moisturize during the day. Before bed, apply a mask, or at least be sure to remove all makeup from your face. You’ll moisturize overnight with a product like SIBU’s Rejuvenating Night Cream and be fresh faced to begin again in the morning.

Beautiful, Acne Free Skin with 3 Simple Lifestyle Changes

In an ideal world we’d never have to deal with a blemish again, and we would enjoy clear, acne free skin that stays simply flawless year after year.

Of course, as human beings, this is not realistic, and all sorts of factors can contribute to an annoying acne breakout. These factors may include diet, lifestyle, hormones and genetic factors to name a few.

A mild breakout or random blemish now and then, such as around that time of the month, isn’t unusual, but if you find yourself dealing with more than just the odd pesky pimple, then we urge you to keep reading, because you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Moderate to severe acne can put a real dent in your self esteem, but you’ll be surprised at just how quickly you can start enjoying clearer and happier skin.

Here are some of our top tips for acne free skin that will help to soothe and heal, as well as prevent future breakouts.

1. Say No To Prescription Lotions and Opt For Natural Products Instead

There are loads of prescription lotions that are supposed to heal your problem skin by drying out your blemishes, but unfortunately this is just a temporary fix that can have some nasty side effects, such as redness, itchiness and even rashes.

Our SIBU Sea Berry Seed Oil is 100% organic, and has been the first to help thousands dealing with problematic skin. Even after prescriptions had failed. 

For a long-term solution keep your skin clear with natural products that will balance your oil levels without over-drying your skin, which will only make the problem worse.

Our products here at SIBU are especially wonderful for problematic skin thanks to our key ingredient, namely Sea Buckthorn.

Sea Buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6 and 9, as well as the richest source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega 7. This fatty acid is vital for healthy skin, hair and nails, and helps to soothe, treat and prevent breakouts by fighting free radicals and reducing inflammation in the skin.


2. Say No To Antibiotics and Prescription Drugs and Yes To Clean, Fresh Foods

Doctors may be quick to prescribe antibiotics to clear your troubled skin, but again, this is usually just a “quick fix” that won’t last, and there are often side-effects that can affect your health.

Instead, reassess your diet, and ditch all the foods that don’t provide you with any real nutrients. When filling your body with whole fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and grains, you are not only boosting your health, but you are giving your skin the best chance to stay clear and glowing.

Our Omega 7 Pure supplements contains over 190 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidants along with omegas 3, 6, 9, & the rare beauty omega, omega 7.

Omega 7 literally feeds your skin the building blocks it needs to be healthy.

3. Say No To Stress and Choose To Breathe

Stress plays a big role in the condition of your skin. When we stress, our body releases a hormone called cortisol, which can produce too much sebum, resulting in nasty breakouts.

If stress is a big part of your life, then try and figure out what exactly is stressing you out and find ways to reduce your stress. Practices like meditation or yoga, or even spending a few minutes doing something you love everyday will not only make a huge improvement on your mental state, your skin will reward you too!

Don’t let acne rule your life. By simply changing your diet, using natural products and lowering your stress levels, you can make a huge difference in the condition of your skin. Don’t hesitate to share your acne free skin results with us!
