Kombucha is one of my Go-To remedies for acne breakouts.
Acne is painful and stressful. The best remedy I have found so far to cure recurrent breakouts is my diet. Kombucha is one drink in particular that helped restore my skin after I suffer from an extreme acne breakout.
Kombucha is a fermented drink with live cultures and probiotics.
Acne can be caused by an overgrowth of Candida BACTERIA in the gut.

I may seem happy and uplifting all of the time, especially on social media, but in my real life that is not always the case. Some days are harder than others, some days I still wake up struggling with depression, and anxiety.
In the earlier stage of my healing, I was more reactive to triggers. It was challenging to be in social settings because often the simplest interaction triggered memories of the trauma, and anxious thoughts followed. I felt exposed- aware of the dark sad thoughts- and I felt like everyone else knew I was in the dark too. Being in that space, I discovered simple techniques to bring in the support and safety to bring myself back to center.
Here are 3 easy ways to call in love, support and strength when you’re suffering:
1. Talk to friends about what you are feeling. If you feel uncomfortable, or if you’re in your mind and disconnected from what’s going on around you, reach out to a friend and let them know, in a chill manner, how you are feeling. People don’t always understand that someone’s silence, distracted behavior, confusion or sluggishness comes from battling depression, PTSD or an anxiety attack. Letting people know you need their support can ease the anxiety attack.
2. Take slow, deep breaths filling your lungs, focusing on feeling your feet grounded and supported underneath you. This will ground you in the present moment. Connection with breath is connection to Universe and Oneness. Imagine you are breathing in the most relaxing fresh healing air and you will relax. The stronger your imagination is, the better this will work.
3. Stand in a confident posture, such as a Power Pose. We are electrical machines. When our minds close off, our bodies mirror it. Consciously opening up the body will redirect your flow of energy, triggering the release of happier hormones elevating your mood. Jumping up and down in small hops elevates my mood instantly- because it wakes up the brain. If you feel silly doing this, it’s working.

Living that #NotMyPresident lifestyle anyone?
This blog mini-series is called Solutions. I’m going to show you the most effective and simplest ways to live a life of protest for the good our planet. By making tiny adjustments in our lifestyle, we can significantly reduce energy consumption and help stop climate change.
Today’s Solution is Thrifting!
Did you know that the fashion industry is one of the top contributors to climate change? The fashion industry is also creating irreversible damage to our global water supply- from toxic dyes used to make clothing.
Did you know the US makes up the largest percentage of the global market for clothing?! As the primary consumers of this market, WE have the biggest impact on this pollution. Real change will start with us!
This lifehack is easy. Do not spend your hard earned money on cheap and quick fashion. Be educated of where your clothing comes from. Upcycle more. Donate or give away old clothing. Thrift. Shop local, handmade. Shop eco-friendly.
If enough people do this, we will inspire brands to find new, environmentally sustainable ways to produce their clothing.
Thrifting is a lot of fun. You never know WHAT you’ll find thrifting. There are always brands we love, in good condition and at a great price. People discover designer digs while thrifting all the time, you know.
Maybe your community hosts a monthly or weekly flea market. If you’re lucky, you’ll score some really sick vintage finds, or find new local art you fall in love with. I go to Melrose Trading Post on Fairfax and Melrose on Sundays, and I’ve scored some really unique handmade / vintage home goods, clothes, shoes and jewelry!
Last year, I decided to stop purchasing “new”, unless it was locally made, sustainably sourced, thrifted, up-cycled or handmade. The first couple of months were hard, but then when I got serious and focused on the intentions of my shopping actions, I started to manifest all of the furniture I wanted, second hand and as gifts! I haven’t looked back on shopping new.
The vibe of my wardrobe shifted when I minimized my stuff and started shopping with better intentions. My style is eclectic, it’s different- and I get excited to tell people how I find the clothes I wear. I give away clothes I don’t wear, I clear out my closet every year to local thrift stores, and I try not to shop that often. I like having a versatile wardrobe, with a few long-term quality handmade pieces.
Try this fun life hack for a couple months, I’d love to hear about the magic YOU discover! Tell me in the comments!
