“I developed acne at 14. A dermatologist gave me Tetracycline pills. My face was clear for the next three years. When I stopped the treatments the acne always came back worse than before. Finally after the birth of my daughter, I became so desperate I was thinking about taking Accutane.
However, knowing I would need liver enzymes checked during the treatment and a pregnancy test monthly due to the terrible birth defects caused by the drug, I was hesitant. I had used Shaklee products off and on for many years and was encouraged to give the product another try.
I started out with the following: 2 Vita-Lea per meal, 2 Sustained C per meal, 3T Soy Protein every morning, 1 Carotomax per meal, 1 Lecithin per meal, 2 Zinc per day, 2 GLA per meal, 4 Alfalfa per meal, 4 B-Complex per meal, 4 Garlic per meal and at bedtime, Optiflora (bedtime), 2 Herb-Lax (bedtime).
When my skin cleared after 5 weeks, I cut the Vita-Lea to 1 per meal and stopped the Garlic. The Garlic did more for me than the Tetracycline I had been taking. After about the 5th week, I noticed a dramatic change in my skin. I now rarely get a blemish, and if I do, it’s very small. I also drink about two liters of water every day. I stopped drinking pop altogether. I used to drink a lot of diet cola.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the results. My skin is now smooth and has a glow that it didn’t have before Shaklee. I used to get the worst breakouts right before my period. I didn’t get a single blemish before my last cycle! Shaklee’s done wonders for my self-esteem. I meet new people nearly every day in my job.
When my skin was covered with blemishes, I was so ashamed I sometimes wanted to stay home from work. There was hardly a moment I wasn’t conscious of my face. Now I can concentrate on my work and not on what people may be thinking of me. Each day I notice old acne scars are a bit lighter.
I feel very good knowing the supplements are helping not only my face, but my entire body. The B-Complex has really helped me deal with stress more effectively, since my job is quite demanding and I’m taking classes toward a master’s degree.”
