Beauty secrets: Clear up your skin with Vitiman d!


Hey lovelies! I wanted to share my story with you all and i hope i can help anyone who suffers from bad skin, because well...i feel your pain!

The beginning of a positive result...

So we all know that acne in any form but especially adult acne is a real pain in the ass and we try everything possible to clear it up, like changing your diet to remove diary products, changing our skin routine 20 million times, not touching our face etc etc.  I will tell you i am now an expert in acne...yip i have truly tried everything under the sun(which will be very important in this story) and for 2 years there were times my skin cleared up but it came back again and again.

It really got me down, i felt paranoid and depressed i didnt enjoy putting my makeup on anymore. I tried all the above thst i said and more. I finally went to the doctors, i didnt go at first because every blog or piece i read everyone says the docotrs give you something and it works for a while but again comes crawling back.. so they gave me benyzol cream to apply at night for 5 weeks and it did help even from the first use.  While i was at the docs i asked for a pollycystic ovaries test and a vitiman D deficiancy test as i had read about the fact that obviously hormones are a big cause but also i realised when i go away on holiday my skin clears up.

Lightbulb moment!

I started researching this and found only a few but similar problems people where having all saying the exact same thing as me. I came across a link that said "how i cleared up my skin in 2 months this really works".  It was a girl saying she ended up getting vitiman D supplements after trying everything else and within 2 months her skin was nearly back to normal.

I got my tests back from the doc a week later and i was boarder line vitamin d deficient so i went to holland and barratt and got some vitiman d supplements in 1000iu/25ug as i needed at least that as we can get up to 5000iu from only 15 minutes in the sun.  Plus i didnt want to high a dose as you can toxify yourself if you do too much so do be careful.

This along with using dead sea black mud mask soap and a muslin cloth was beginning to look like a good combination.

The result

I am so over the moon with how this small tiny pill has helped my skin after nothing working for me...afterall we dont get much sun on this rainy little island plus u work then u come home so its pale city all the way.
I still have some scarring which is gradually getting better plus i had to learn not to squeeze (sometimes it just helps with the soreness) as it leaves scars SO DONT PICK!

I am not an expert and what works for me may not work for some people but if you are at a loss then do give this a try and let me know how it works for you!  Are there any other tips that worked for you? let me know in the comments!
