Hello! So this week I started an eight-week course of help: clear skin supplements by the company Works with Water and am documenting my progress each week (if you missed my introductory post you can read all about it here).
I've been taking them for seven days now and, as expected, I haven't seen much of a difference as results are only visible after 4-6 weeks of use, but here's how I've been getting on anyway...
The supplements are made from all natural ingredients: Praventin (lactoferrin milk protein), aloe vera, and oligofructose (soluble fibre). I'm not entirely sure how milk protein is meant to kill spots but if the packet says it does I'm willing to believe them, I'll try anything! They are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians, diabetics and lactose intolerant people (again, not entirely sure as it contains protein but that could just be me being silly!)
As you can see the powder turns the water a little cloudy but it does clear up once it's dissolved fully. When drinking the supplements I honestly can't tell they're there at all, they have absolutely no taste and it doesn't give the water a funny texture like some other powders too which is great!
As stated before I haven't noticed any changes yet but the packaging does state that you need to take the supplement for 4-6 weeks. With long days at uni and exam stress coming on I'm not getting as much sleep and it is taking its toll on my skin so it's inevitable that I'll have a lot of breakouts this month. Since using the supplements I haven't had any new blemishes come up, so it obviously helps prevent them, but it hasn't healed my existing spots yet.
Thank you for reading, check back next week to see if there's been any improvements!
(sorry for the bad picture quality I had to use my phone today and I didn't edit so you can see the results in natural light)
