Some of you may have seen my plea for guinea pigs in early February:
I ended up with 50 zinc testers.
Turns out, acne doesn't have an easy answer, like I had hoped. Here's an example of the survey results:
Although some people were helped by the zinc stick, it's not something I want to pursue unless there's a real demand for it. On the other hand, there's potential, as a few testers have run out of the sample and are asking for more.
So here's what I plan to do: if there's enough of a demand, I'll offer it for sale at a reduced price for awhile (email me if you're one of those demanding it). I'll also add it as a free sample add-on for repeat customers (email me if you're not familiar with how this works). Fair enough?
In the meantime, those of you who struggle with acne need to check out Crunchy Betty's e-book, Food on your Face. I read it last month and the introduction alone should have prepared me that not all skin can be dealt with in the same way. Crunchy Betty is the expert when it comes to acne, blemishes, pimples and oily skin. She offers a variety of solutions, from a baking soda wash, to easy toners, and even a few natural make up hacks that include food (I'm anxious to try the activated charcoal and aloe vera gel for a natural mascara). She also has a section on the oil cleansing method, which I've dabbled with and believe works well. She also suggests a zinc supplement (confirming my belief - zinc is good both outside and inside the body). There's much more. Sound intriguing? Click here to view more details
(Full Disclosure: After purchasing and reading her e-book, I decided it was a great one to share, and I've also added myself as an affiliate to promote Crunchy Betty's book.)
So there you have it: acne doesn't have an easy answer (or we all might have actually enjoyed jr. high!), but with Crunchy Betty's e-book, and the opportunity to keep using the zinc stick for free, maybe we'll conquer a few more pimples.
