This Is How Two Twins Cleared Their Cystic Acne in Three Days

November 26, 2015 2 min read

This is how these sisters cleared up their skin.

Nina and Randa Nelson are identical twins.  The 22-year-olds have made successful careers as YouTube sensations, and recently revealed to the world how they cured their cystic acne in just a few months.

By simply changing their diets, they were able to escape the painful and swollen side effects of their bad skin.

Raised on a vegan diet, the young women went through their teens nearly blemish-free. But by the age of 20, they found themselves dealing with intense breakouts. Since animal products are often linked to oily skin and acne, it didn't seem likely that it could be from their diet.

As the days went on, the Los Angeles-based sisters tried as many cleansers, medications and antibiotics that they could get their hands on, even working with several dermatologists, but to no avail.

This is how these sisters cleared up their skin. Their skin was causing the actresses and singers to lose confidence. They were eventually advised to try Accutane, which is a controversial acne drug that has been linked to hair loss, cracked lips and severe depression. "There has to be another alternative," the girls explain in the introductory video about their acne journey. "We thought, it has to be something we're putting into our body. But what is it? We don't know. We are already vegan, what should we do?" Their father advised them to connect with diet specialist Dr. John McDougall, who had helped their mother overcome an autoimmune disease that had the entire family on a plant-based diet. This is how these sisters cleared up their skin. This is how these sisters cleared up their skin. This is how these sisters cleared up their skin. [bctt tweet="This Is How Two Twins Cleared Their Cystic Acne in Three Days"] When they visited the doctor's website, they saw the claims he made about how acne could, in fact, be eliminated through diet alone. Mainly, he recommended the elimination of foods containing oils and fats of any kind. The doctor's website recommended eliminating oily and fatty foods, which the girls were, in fact, consuming. They were regular consumers of dairy-free peanut butter, avocados and soy products. "What Dr. McDougall said on his website about acne and excess fats made complete sense to us, so we tried it," the sisters explained. After just three days, they began to see the results. "Within three days, we had no new breakouts! It was just a matter of healing up the scars." This is how these sisters cleared up their skin.

The girls now consume brown rice with vegetables, whole wheat and rice pasta, potatoes, sweet potatoes, condiments and many types of beans. They also eat extra fruit and dried fruit and drink smoothies with oats regularly.

The sisters have 200,000 subscribers for their music, make-up tutorials and other escapades documented on their vlogs.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
