So I have these really bad skin issues... Ranging from oh yeah that's kind of annoying to garbage pail kid status. I have eczema + psoriasis. I've had it for as long as I could remember but when I entered my 20's it became a whole new beast. It became severe, to the point where it destroyed what was left of my self esteem because of how gross it looked and all the scars it left on my body. It was physically painful at times too...
Through out the years I've tried vitamins and supplements, several lotions, creams, soaps, natural remedies like apple cider vinegar, olive oil, coconut oil etc.. I found that coconut oil, calamine lotion, and good quality unscented/dyed lotions have really helped me the most. I started juicing after reading so much about it on blogs and hearing friends talk about it. It's only been one week and I've seen a remarkable difference!
My face is clearing up. I've never really had a bad acne problem, except for my oily nose that is prone to get blackheads, the rest of my skin was always super dry. I get breakouts every now and then but I've always had small red bumps on my face. I see they're starting to go away.. I see that my nose isn't getting as oily as it used to. When I wake up my face doesn't look dull anymore, it looks fresh! I noticed some bad irritation from psoriasis that has been on my body for 2 years finally healed! I'm going to keep doing this and hope maybe one day I'll have my old skin back.
I've been mostly juicing lots and lots carrots, apples, peaches, spinach, and strawberries. I'll share some of my favorite juice recipes soon! The juice in the picture above is 4 Carrots, 1 Apple, 1 Peach, and 2 big handfuls of baby spinach. It was really tasty despite it's swamp water like appearance.
