I tried 1 cup of water, 1 tspn of borax and 2 tspn of peroxide and made as olution to put on my face to kill the face mites I think might be causing my acne. Today I have a bad headache and I don't usually get headaches. Is this normal?
Below is a link to a recommended newsletter post written by a girl who suffered from severe acne. Appears she's been gone for some time, has removed the images (before and after) - but the improvement was remarkable. The worst acne condition one could imagine to Covergirl status. Jawdropping.
Headaches are also a sign of die-off. If you have mites (demodex) you probably also have other parasites.
And not all acne is due to diet or the need for a liver cleanse. Mites can truly be a major part--or the cause of--your acne.
I know that everyone is into cleansing on this site (I've done several myself) but I speak from experience when I say that you could cleanse yourself for years and still not experience any good relief from your acne symptoms if you have mites. Better to rule out the mites because that's the easiest thing to identify.
Borax/Ponds/Sea Buckthorn oil should all dramatically improve our acne-prone skin if we have the little buggers. I say keep it up with the borax, but down your dose a little. Dilute it with water and Hydrogen-Peroxid and use it to wash/soak your face. Eventually you may be able to use straight-up borax on your face, but it's better to start out slowly, to minimize the die-off symptoms and just because the undiluted stuff is most likely too harsh for your skin.
I agree with you. I have been detoxing on and off for 2 years and my acne has gotten worse not better. I understand detoxing can do that but at some point you have to say ... hmmmm? I also went gluten free in November and quit smoking. No improvement. I started using the zz cream from demodex solutions now and I am about to go purchase some olive leaf and see if that helps. I'll let anyone know who is interested. Day 2 and my skin looks a little better.
Congratulations on the quitting smoking! I quit almost 7 months ago, and I've had acne ever since then.
I have this theory that the mites were happy until I quit smoking (when my body started to be more alkaline), and then they got pissed off. They've been dying and rotting in my face ever since. (Sorry for the graphic language.) So I guess all of this acne has really been a good thing because I'm being slowly cleansed of the buggers and am killing them by simply changing the acidity of my body and eating parasite-killing foods, but I'd like them gone sooner than later, if you know what I mean.
In the last two weeks, I've developed two massive volcanoes on my face. One on my jawline near my ear, and the other above my lip. I'm almost certain that these were nests/colonies of the little bastards. They just keep oozing pus. Bleh.
The borax was a little too harsh for my skin, so I'm currently using the Ponds cold creme remedy. My skin already looks better and it's only been two days. I am getting some die-off zits, but they're coming to a head and are easily removed with my pimple tool. They're also healing quickly.
Oh, and I'm using Selsun Blue shampoo. Hoping that'll kill the ones in my scalp.
I'm very curious to hear how your experience with the ZZ stuff goes, so yes, keep us updated!
