Hi Rusiko, thanks for your comment. Natural Acne Clinic’s online clearing program specializes in getting our clients clear when nothing else has worked. Often products work for a little while, as in your experience, but begin to lose their effectiveness after a few weeks. This is because the skin adapts to a product regimen like your muscles adapt to a gym routine, and it is necessary to implement systematic routine changes in order to effectively treat acne. What makes our program so unique is that we change your skincare regimen biweekly over the course of 16 weeks, at the end of which our clients graduate with a clear complexion. We’d love to help you get clear too!
Your site has really inspired me to dig deeper and really research causes behind acne. My hormonal acne has been driving me crazy lately and today I’ve finally put two and two together. My revelation has to do with the mTOR pathway and IGF-1 levels that you have mentioned on your site. I admit I’m a fitness addict and have been supplementing with whey isolate, BCAA’s and upping my protein intake for the past couple of months. I have developed awesome muscle but its come at a cost. I am going to stop supplementing with whey, BCAA and reduce my protein intake to more “normal” levels. However, stopping working out and strength training is out of the question for me, its too important for my happiness and stress reduction.
However I will make some big changes. I will switch my protein to soy protein isolate and use only strategically after workouts. My question is how can I offset cortisol production (which can also cause acne) after an intense workout? Usually I take a high GI carb like dextrose. If I cut that out, what else can I do?? Or is a high GI carb, when used when really needed, ok?
