acne was never really an issue for me, but my skin has gotten clearer and better since i stopped using cleanser on it. i use steam and a washcloth. coincidentally i no longer need moisturizer either.
i suspect it does have much to do with your gut and that may take some time to heal. in addition to the probiotics, add daily bone broth.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
