Congrats on getting all of that goop out! I noticed that premature aging is one of your concerns. This can almost solely be caused by nutritional deficiences, lack of antioxidants and too much time in the sun. Some sun exposure is necessary and good for you. Too much will cross link the collagen fibers in your skin and cause you to have an aged appearance and sagging, wrinkly skin. Make sure you are getting the proper nutrition, not from synthetic vitamins, but real, live whole foods. Spirulina is a wonderful way to start. Make sure you are getting enough vitamin C and protein as they are vital for building collagen. You may also want to take an MSM supplement as it will help the connective tissue under your skin bounce back to a youthful appearance. Last but not least, drink your water! Cells are cleansed and plumped by water, so drink half your body weight in ounces a day. I have a natural skin care program you can follow and see amazing results. Email if you would like to see it.
