In terms of acne I have been really lucky with my skin. Never had any problems, not even as a teenager. I always had clear and even skin. Instead I have a different skin problem. I’ve been suffering from some sort of skin disease, which I haven’t yet been able to really determine by name. I went to several doctors, but everyone says something different. Some would even only ask for symptoms without even really looking at my skin and instantly prescribe cortisone or other chemical creams which might help short time, but definitely not long term. And they also just fight the symptoms, not the actual root of the problem.
My skin disease probably comes closest to seborrheic dermatitis. They flaky red patches are spread out mostly around my nose, my ears and on my scalp. I have been searching like a crazy person through the internet for all a possible solution, which will finally help me with my problem. But everything I’ve tried so far hasn’t been any help, not even applying apple cider vinegar.
Rather by accident I found a combination, that hasn’t cured my skin disease as of yet, but definitely improved it and the flaky patches are reduced, some are even gone. I feel like it get’s better day by day. It’s gonna sound a bit weird, but I was at a point where I had tried pretty much everything if someone had told me it would solve my skin problem.
1. Sting yourself with nettle. Yes, exactly, sting yourself. Exactly where you have the skin problem. It’s gonna hurt a bit, but not too bad, you’ll get used to it – at least I did.
2. Pack fresh nettle into your smoothie/ green juice every day first thing in the morning.
2) Tea Tree Essential Oil + Jojoba Oil + Oregano Oil
1. Mix a few drops tea tree essential oil with a few drops oregano essential oil and a carrier oil. Jojoba oil has worked for me best.
2. Use a Q-tip to dab the oil mix on the inflamed area. Every morning and every evening.
Those two things in combination have helped me a lot and I really hope I can help someone else with sharing my experience. I can’t really tell if one or the other has helped me more, as I’ve started to do both things simultaneously.
