You may wonder, why do breakouts happen? How is your skin free and clear one day, and a complete trainwreck the next?
Believe us when we say that these skin disorders and eruptions often have been waiting under the surface to emerge. Almost all cases of acne start as a full body imbalance rather than a skin first issue.
With some outliers, acne is rarely a skin cleanliness issue, but more of an issue with hormonal balance. This may seem obvious when teenagers go through puberty or women experience their menstrual cycle, but is this really true in adulthood and also in the male population? The answer is most definitelyYES.
The truth of the matter is, we are exposed to toxic substances called xenoestrogens at an alarming rate these days. The receipts that we handle on a daily basis, the plastic surrounding our foods, our cleaning supplies, body products, and chemical food additives all act as endocrine disruptors that disturb the delicate balance of the human hormonal system.
Add to this the conventional meat and dairy industry, that loads their animals with hormones and antibiotics, and you’ve got yourself a near constant stream of organic and inorganic substances that are confusing your body’s natural systems, your digestion functions, and your liver’s ability to detoxify the body. All of this modern day exposure to toxins lead to many maladies, including persistent acne.
What can you do?
Don’t Over Cleanse!
The next step is all about resisting the urge to over cleanse your skin! Acne is an inside, out problem.
A word of caution… when beginning a new and potent program to release the skin from acne, it is important to be patient when the skin goes through a detox phase. Our deeply effective skincare should bring skin disturbing “sleeper cells” to the surface more quickly. Stay the course, and in a few weeks you will be so glad you did. See this moment in time as a necessary purge to be rid of issues for good.
If waking up to constantly clear skin is of a top priority, clean out your cupboards, choose your foods wisely, and always apply Mikel Kristi products for safe, treatment grade, and highly effective skin care that really works!

Advocate:A person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, and/or cause.
For all the ways to describe who I am and what I do, the word advocate feels the most right. I am not just a PA-C, injector, skincare formulator, and entrepreneur. Those are simply the tools I use to carry out my life’s passion. My mission is to help educate people on the power they have to work with aging on a deep and impactful level, and to help my clients see themselves in a new light that they have control over. The truth is that too many people waste money and sanity on products and procedures that either don’t work, or don’t deliver on the intended outcome. And it's only by education on the structure of the skin, and how aging takes place in the body, that we can intelligently choose what to do when.
An Introduction To Cosmeceuticals
So, you may ask, “Why don’t all skin products work?” Many of us have bought the newest trendy product that we have read about in a beauty magazine or seen on TV, used it for a few weeks, see no results, and then put it in the cabinet never to be touched again. The fact is that YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS! You want your skin to look and feel healthier and younger. However, many beauty products fall short because those amazing “active ingredients” that they advertise aren’t delivered to the right place in the skin, or in the right form to be effective.
Many companies in the business of “Big Beauty” have capitalized on the notion of a customized skincare plan based on your particular skin type. I think we have all taken the quiz, received the result, and went straight to the cash register confident that this custom regimen would be the answer to our skin woes. Cut to three months later, and we are back at a different register, listening to different set of promises … and lather, rinse, repeat.
It really doesn’t matter what “skin type” you have. The four basic daily needs for skin health and anti-aging do not change
