Just slightly over a week ago my skin was in a terrible state. I rarely suffer from breakouts this bad and this one was the mother of all breakouts I have ever suffered over the years. Thankfully, I remembered a tip given by my dermatologist when I was diagnosed with Impetigo a good 7 years ago. I remember waking up one day with a boil-like pimple and over the next 2 days my entire face looked like it’s covered in pus. Not pretty. I remember it was exam season too and I had two teachers come up to me asking if I was under too much stress. +__+
Thankfully I haven’t suffered from any other skin ailment since but I have some information to share with all of you on how to help our skin heal from a bad case of breakouts, or any skin problems!
I always keep a spare bottle of Vitamin E capsules at home as these capsules can either be ingested or applied directly to the skin.
When applied to the skin, Vitamin E helps to to diminish the appearance of scars as well as hydrate the skin. According to my dermatologist consuming Vitamin E capsules will help accelerate the healing process should our skin decide to go nuts.
I do not consume Vitamin E capsules on a daily basis because I find larger sized capsules rather difficult to swallow. =p So I only force this down my throat when needed and doing so results in the pimples healing faster.
This is just a little tip I thought I’d share with you! I am not sure if this will work for you but if you happen to suffer from a sudden outbreak of pimples and you have run out of ideas, do give this a try! I have read online that you can prick the capsule and apply the oil to scars and this is meant to lighten them. However, I myself have not tried this out as I don’t really like applying oil to my face.
Do you take health supplements? Another supplement I consume is Peppermint oil to help sooth my tummy as I suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but that’s a story for another day! =)
