Advantages: Clears up skin, reduces cramps, bloating, tenderness, pmt.
Disadvantages: Have to remeber to take them!
I have suffered with varying degrees of acne for around 15 years, and consequently have learnt to deal with it, but never completely combat it! Mine seems to be of the cystic type, which I have inherited from my mother, (thanks mum) and just when I think it's cleared up it will come back with avengance. My skin is also quite sensative, and so a lot of the commercial 'spot fighting' products out there are way too strong and strip my skin leading to more spots.
A few months a go I made the decision to go natural with my skincare and make-up, and whilst this does in-deed seem to have helped dramatically I was still suffering from the odd cystic lump. I've been using Lush coalface soap, followed by an organic Green People moisturiser, and then using mineral foundation (bare mineral's made my skin worse, swapped to Lily Lolo) to cover old scars and give me an almost flawless complexion! After reading the rave reviews of Starflower oil, and seeing it in my local Tesco's for £3, (60 x 500mg) I decided to give it a try.
I bought the starflower oil about 3 weeks ago, and have been taking two capsules every day since. I have to say that the usual clump of nasty itchy red lumps that normally appear once a month decided to have a holiday this month. Instead I have noticed a couple of smaller spots, but these I can cope with and easily treat and cover. My cycle has been shorter than normal, and the tenderness, water retention, and cramps have also gone on holiday. Woo Hoo.
I am astounded by the positive affects of taking starflower oil, and the fact that it has worked so quickly too, especially considering the fact that I've only bought cheap supermarket ones. They are 500mg, hence why I've been taking two a day as the recommeneded dose is 1000mg. I spotted some in my local Wilko's the other day on offer, £2.50 for two pots containing 30 x 500mg capsules in each so bought those. If you suffer from hormonal blemishes/acne or painful/heavy cycles, then I would undoubtedly recommend giving Starflower oil supplements a try. In a month you should definitely notice a difference, I did and I will continue to take them indefinitely.
N.B. Sorry I forgot to mention that the Tesco/Wilko capsules aren't suitable for vegetarians, as they contain beef gelatine. I'm sure there are plenty of other brands out there that are though.
Summary: Every woman should take these, the world would be a happier place.
