So, I have been using "Nature's Secret" Ultimate Cleansing system as I had read that bad skin (and other symptoms like constipation) can be a result of having too many toxins in your body. It's been almost 2 weeks and I have to say I certainly feel better, less tired, etc. AND, my skin seems smoother. Before doing this, my skin tended to have a small,bumpy texture all over and that is mostly gone. I am still getting blemishes (possibly as part of the "cleansing") but nothing horrible. I am doing nothing else different...no different facial products, not eating different, nothing. Just thought I'd share.
Well, then you really ought to try this. I mean, I feel more "awake" than I have in awhile. And, the constipation thing is not a problem anymore so I feel better there too. Even if this ends up not totally clearing my skin, my body feels better so it was worth it.
I bought this at a healthfood store and I know it's available at GNC. The "Ultimate Cleanse" comes with 2 bottles...Multi-Herb and Multi-Fibre and it cost $24 or so for 120 tablets in each bottle. Depending on your body, you need to take 2-6 of each, twice a day. You're supposed to take enough to make you go #2 twice or three times a day (I'm at twice, thank you very much!) I believe this is meant to be a 2 or 3 times a year thing, not an ongoing thing. The only side effects I experienced were a little extra gas at first and when I'd worked up to 3 pills of each, twice a day, it made me go TOO much, so I tapered it for myself. They taste kind of icky so swallow fast or take it with some juice or something. It's interesting to see how many people who have acne also have frequent constipation...hmmmm. I would certainly recommend doing this, for skin or not, because I feel really good.
