Acne & Stress

//Acne & Stress

“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.”
