Got Acne? You’ve tried everything right?
But have you tried… doing nothing?
I struggled with acne most of my life, and even on a raw food diet my skin was ‘problematic’.
Keeping the fats in my diet super low, and even going overt-fat free for a while, made a HUGE difference, but there were still some pesky zits coming up that always broke my heart…
At my most desperate I went googling (as you do!) and came across an amazing young woman called Tracy Raftl who cleared her own severe cystic acne completely naturally and now teaches others how to do the same on her charmingly named website, TheLoveVitamin.com.
Here’s a picture of Tracy:
She’s now a mentor to people wanting to break through emotionally crippling experiences with acne, clear their skin with a healthy, holistic approach, and improve their lives to the point where they are filled with confidence, joy and accomplishment.
Sounds like a pretty good mission in life to me!
Here are some before and after shots while she was healing her skin…
Anyway, I read her book The Ultimate Secrets to Acne Freedom, and applied a number of her concepts, one of them being The Caveman Regimen (where you literally do NOTHING to your skin – no washing, exfoliating, moisturising or make-up – and watch it heal).
When I did a 30-day Caveman Regimen it was an amazing process, and my skin did clear up A LOT, although I did have a lot of questions about how to tweak the program for my personal situation…
(You can read about my 30-day Caveman Regimen experience here).
At the time I really wished I had Tracy to personally counsel me through the whole process.
So I was really excited to recently discover that now she’s written a book on the subject, The Caveman Regimen in which she answers all those questions that pop up as you go through the process.
This week only, for the launch of her book The Caveman Regimen, she’s offering a 30% discount. Normally it will sell for $19.95, but this week (until Midnight Sunday July 6th) you can pick it up for $14.95.
While Tracy doesn’t necessarily promote a raw food diet to heal acne, many of the approaches she recommends following for acne prone skin really complement a low-fat, plant-based raw food diet.
Besides being an author and guide providing information and inspiration for thousands of people who read her blog, TheLoveVitamin.com, Tracy is also a really warm, kind-hearted soul.
Tracy started her career after she developed severe acne at the age of 23 and became deeply interested in using nutrition and a healthy lifestyle to heal the skin. She had amazing success with these natural methods and she decided to start a blog on the subject.
She felt that sharing her experience over the internet of how she managed to permanently treat her acne without any help from doctors, creams, face washes, or over the counter treatments would be the best way to touch as many people as possible.
So far Tracy has helped thousands of people through their personal journeys with her ebooks and products: Ultimate Secrets to Acne Freedom, Cure Your Skin Compulsions, and The Love Vitamin’s Guide to Female Hormonal Acne.
If you have acne or any other skin issues for that matter I highly recommend Tracy’s guides. I was really impressed just with how much value I got for my money. She really does pack her guides with every bit of information and TLC you could possibly need.
You can find Tracy and her ebooks at TheLoveVitamin.com
Remember that your skin is your body’s largest organ for detoxification, so if you’re having breakouts then it’s a great sign that your body is under pressure and not able to eliminate toxins efficiently through your other pathways of elimination.
You can help your body do its thing by increasing your rest and sleep (go for 8-10 hours of sleep a night), raw foods (80%-100%), vigorous exercise (45-90mins/day) sunlight (30 mins/day) pure air and water.
And if you’ve tried these things and your skin is still terrible, then it can really help to have the guidance of someone who successfully cleared her own chronic cystic acne. So definitely check out Tracy’s site.
