We gave a gut health update now it is time for a skin update . If you are new to our blog (hi!) and we both have shared our personal skin struggles here on the blog and felt we needed to give an update.
We know getting clear skin, whether it is for acne or eczema, is a hot topic and something we both have experienced first hand. We know how challenging it can be as healing these issues can a bit complex.
Today we are giving you some tips to try out that helped both of us. Plus we give an update on how our skin is doing.
Tips to get clear skin for acne and eczema

Everyone’s journey will be different.
It is hard for us to give advice for healing because there are so many factors. It varies from person to person.
But we hope our tips help you continue your healing journey and to remind you to keep fighting. If we healed so can you!
1 – Stop picking and reduce your time researching.
For us this was a big one. When we turned our attention away from our skin it allowed our skin to heal. We know that might sound a bit strange or hard to believe, but where you put your attention is what you get back. This is not just about actually picking (touching) your skin but how you PICK at your body!! Then when you are researching all the time it becomes obsessive and increases your stress level, which leads to more problems.
2 – Less is more.
Keep things simple, especially your face care routine. Click here to see how we wash our face with oils and watch us chat about oils on our skin here. We wash our face once a day. Sometimes use a coffee scrub in the morning. Use just a few products on our skin, including essential oils.
3 – Be mindful of your thoughts and actions.
This applies to all areas of your life! How are you talking to yourself? Are you happy with your job? Are you eating nourishing foods or are you scared of food? Beliefs are everything. We experience what we believe so if your beliefs are negative (whether about food, skin or your body), they are limiting you. If you think getting clear skin is hard it will continue to be. Changing your beliefs is not easy as they are automatic, but it can be done! We started just being more aware of our thoughts and would write them down. This helped us break through blocks and re-write our beliefs.
4 – Love yourself along the way.
We will continue to share things that helped us in our self-love healing journey, as we know this was the key for getting and keeping our clear skin! It really starts within. When you take the steps to take care of yourself and love yourself you will start to do things that show this back to your body which will lead to healing! It takes time, don’t give up. It’s not about being perfect but focusing on progression.
Do you struggle with picking? Do you have a simple skin care routine? Do you have any questions for us? What limiting beliefs do you have around your skin or food that might be holding you back?
