Notes from Ben on Acne
Supporting Lifestyle and Nutritional Protocol
As with all seemingly topical skin conditions, the root cause of acne starts inside the body. This troublesome and all too common pathology involves 3 major hormones: 1.) Cortisol - associated with stress, 2.) Insulin - linked to elevated blood sugar, and 3.) Testosterone - related to elevated blood sugar as well as puberty. The cardinal signs of this hormone-based acne include excess secretion of sticky skin oil (sebum) production and clogged pores that are the end result of excess keratin production. Eventually, colonization of skin follicles by bacteria can follow resulting in inflammation and the formation of the characteristic and dreaded acne pimples.
Sometimes allergic reactions and intolerances to foods especially dairy, grains, eggs, beans (especially soy) and peanuts can cause rashy lesions independent of the clogged pores, oily skin, excessive keratin production and bacterial proliferation that are the hallmarks of ordinary hormone acne. Consider adding the following protocols to your daily routine:
1. Eliminate problem foods such as grains, flour, dairy, soy, peanuts, and other legumes.
2. Reduce sugar intake.
3. Use probiotics, multiple strains and so-called good bacteria from fermented vegetables.
4. Enjoy fresh vegetable juices (with the fiber). Select only veggies that do not create digestive distress.
5. Use digestive enzymes, pancreatin, bile salts and apple cider vinegar with all meals. Start meals off with “bitters” and bitter veggies like dandelion greens, radish, arugula and kale.6. Use nutritional supplements featuring all 90 essential nutrients. Pay particular attention to:
• Vitamin D
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin B5 along with B-complex
Vitamin C is one of the most important substances you can put into and onto your body. In this post, we’re breaking down the importance of topical Vitamin C, what to look for in your skincare products, and why our C produts are the best Vitamin C skin care product for your skin.
Truth Treatments™ Transdermal C Serum is a highly concentrated youth-boosting serum designed to heal the skin and up-regulate skin function. Developed with only functional ingredients and our Transdermal Delivery Matrix for delivery deep into the dermis, Transdermal C Serum will affect change at the cellular level - firming and plumping skin, increasing hydration, and reducing inflammation and discoloration.
Apply Transdermal C Serum to freshly cleansed, still damp skin. Dispense 2-3 drops of the serum into the palm of your hand. For maximum absorption, we recommend combining the Serum with 1-2 pumps of our Truth Treatments™ Biomimetic Priming Mist and mix them together with your fingers to emulsify. Massage into skin until absorbed. You may layer additional skincare products over Transdermal C Serum as usual.
Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum features over 50% active, lipophilic Vitamin C. This is an industry high! Most drugstore and retail brands use up to 20% active ingredients. Even clinical brands pale in comparison typically only using up to 30% active ingredients and often use water soluble Vitamin C, which is highly unstable and ineffective.
Not all Vitamin C’s are created equal. Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum is developed with a premium, lipophilic form of Vitamin C, which is more stable than standard (and cheaper) water-soluble formulas. This lipophilic form of Vitamin C has been proven to be more easily absorbed and utilized by the skin, up-regulating the skin’s enzymatic and regenerative processes. Combined with our 100% active, functional formula and Transdermal Delivery Matrix, our Transdermal C Serum meets the strictest performance standards to create real change in the skin.
Because Truth Treatments Transdermal C Serum is formulated with only active and functional ingredients, a tiny amount of this concentrated serum goes a long way. We recommend using just 2-3 drops applied to damp skin for the face and neck.
Absolutely! Because we formulate with no skin irritants like fillers, synthetic ingredients, color or fragrance, this serum is perfect for sensitive skin. Additionally, Transdermal C Serum was developed with Bisabolol for its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties, so you’ll see a reduction in redness and irritation with use.
