what to take
for better skin, sleep,
DIM-Plus pills looking real cool
There's a time and a place for medicine and these pills have been game-changers for me.
A Little Background
Since middle school, I've always struggled with acne. For me, it was a combination of my nutrition choices, hormonal changes, and stress — all of which of course can affect one another, too.
These three pills have changed my skin, the quality of my sleep, and other things too...
1. Nature's Way DIM-Plus
This is one of the acne-fighting best-kept secrets.
The DIM part (diindolylmethane) is a phytonutrient found in cruciferous veggies (think broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and kale) and basically a super-potent version of those greens.
For anyone who's struggled with hormonal acne - this is for you: it has unique hormonal benefits and supports the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism.
Recommended dosage: 3 pills with lunch and dinner (total 6 pills)
(Thank you Sarah Morford for the recommendation.)
This will knock you OUT, depending on how much you take. Once I took 3 and slept like a zombie, but also woke up the next morning foggy as fuck.
The other benefit of these bills is that they help with digestion if that is something that you want to improve (lol). Also, magnesium is good for supporting bone and muscle health so is great if you work out and are trying to recover faster.
I first was intrigued by magnesium pills because I read that Bella Hadid's nutritionist recommended them to her.
Recommended dosage: 0.5 pills to 1 (you may have to play around with the dosage and see what works best for you)
Live cultures and whatnot. And okay, you've probably already heard and about pro-biotics and been sipping the kombucha, which is oh-so-trendy these days, but pro-biotic pills are almost a better way to go because they:
1. don't have a ton of sugar in them
2. help support digestion
3. because of this, help with better skin
When I was really struggling with skin issues before, the research I did revealed that a lot of it probably had to do with digestion and hormones which is why I recommend all of these pills in combination. However, obviously eating well generally and working out is a power move too.
Recommended dosage: 2 pills per night
