Skin was an issue for a long time for me. Like many others, I had the perfect skin all my teenage years, until the day I quit taking hormonal birth control. Since, I tried everything to from natural to not-so-natural medicine, studied nutrition and have gone through some fundamental lifestyle and diet changes (and suffered from some of them along the way) . Even though my skin has been much better for a while now, I still suffered of an infection at my chin. I know this kind of condition is a cause of something beneath the surface and in my case it was a sign of hormonal unbalance.
A major healing happened few weeks ago. I am lucky to work in a health food company with some nutrition experts. We got a speech on nutrition which basically had two main points – most of the conditions in our body are caused either by weak immunity system or unbalanced hormonal system, both of which I know to have problems with. Herbs and medicinal mushrooms have a bigger role in healing these condition than most of us are aware of. I promised to try our Princess blend, whose benefit is to support the hormonal system. Within a week, I noticed that the infection on my chin had healed itself and the excess oiliness I’ve been suffering of, is gone. I’ve never seen effects of any individual product that clearly, which is why I want to share this. I would not write about anything I didn’t believe myself in.
I was worried that living in a polluted city like Hong Kong would make my issues worse. Luckily, this has not been the case, but I can only imagine how it looked like if I could breathe the fresh air in Finland, eat all the wild berries and have my daily smoothies…Sounds like excuses but maintaining a balanced diet really feels hard at this point. You just got to do your best and enjoy all the adventures my lifestyle enables right now:). My skin (or hormonal system) is still not yet as its best, but so much better than in years.
Of course there are countless causations behind skin issues, but balancing hormonal system and strengthening immunity system are something to seriously give thought to.
