Ok so I don’t have “bad” skin generally but what I do get as a woman of color is blotchy. I tend to get a darkening around my mouth (I have been told that that can be hormonal) and I do experience hyper-pigmentation. If I get a blemish and I pick it then it leaves a dark spot. about 3 weeks ago I was using a concealer and a minerals base in an effort to even out my complexion. I went to Sephora and got some samples of Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid Hydrating gel and Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Radiance Serum to try to lighten and even out my skin. It did work, but the quality of my skin was the same.
I have noticed that after 2 weeks of eating raw the texture of my skin has morphed, it looks hydrated, and is clearer (I think that is a product of both what I am putting on my skin and what I am putting in my body) it looks smooth and dewy. Here is the other thing that it AMAZING and SUPER INEXPENSIVE:
The at home mini facial:
I saturated some Cotton pads in Apple Cider Vinegar (diluted) and place them on my nose, cheeks and chin and let it sit for a while. When I removed them, all of the sebum had risen so I heated a face cloth and extracted them. It’s just what they do when you get a facial, you have to be gentle and not squeeze too hard, if you don’t feel like you can do it with out damaging your skin you can just exfoliate after you take the pads off. After that a little toner, I use rosewater mixed with Cucumber Witch Hazel and moisturize. All I have on in these photos is mascara, eyeliner and lipstick! You can be like 2 weeks from virtually flawless skin!
Apple Cider Vinegar is a wonder of nature, more on that later!!! really it does EVERYTHING , I’m surprised they haven’t thought to use it as an alternative for fuel!
One thought on “One of the Raw Food Benefits… Great Skin!”
I’m a brand new reader, but am SO glad to have found your site. I attended the Ailey ‘advanced studies’ program in 1984. I had an injury that stopped my dance career, along with a diagnosis of M.S. However, I haven’t stopped living! I’m now an artist, and working in California.
But enough about that, I was grateful to see this site, and to see the issues that you address naturally and with frankness. I will try this apple cider vinegar for my skin, which doesn’t like the meds I’m on, ha! I’ll do it carefully, a little at a time, but this is such a great idea I have to try it. Wishing you all the best and so happy to have found you,
