    Sustain Alpha and improved complexion?


    Just wondering if I was the only one to have noticed this... it kind of goes against what one might expect from something which should be boosting testosterone.

    For a good few years now I've had a fair few large spots on my back, rarely loads but always enough that i never really had a clear back. Oddly enough they pretty much took up residence after the spots I used to get on my face during my teen years reduced (the buggers just migrated).

    Been using sustain on my shoulders/upper back for probably closing on 2 months now, and my back is as clear as it's ever been. Still get the occasional one but massively, massively reduced. It seems to be related to the application area, as i still got some on the small of my back but since i started also rubbing in a small amount there (it involves some flexibility that stretches the limits of my ability haha!) those have reduced as well.

    Totally unexpected effect, but awesome.

    Hmm… interesting.

    It probably has something to do with the anti-microbial properties of the essential oils, or perhaps some of the anti-oxidant’s in the topical formula.

    haha oh man I went to the beach yesterday and forgot to put sunscreen on until like 4 hours in. Man am I burnt. I put on my sustain today and I have to say. It does make the burns feel less "stingy". I love how hydrated my skin is after putting this stuff on.

    maybe it has something to do with balancing out the hormones in the area of application where concentration of sustain alpha is highest? or am i just way off here?

    No offense, but I think you're way off lol.

    If I don't put in my face, I get increased acne. If I do put it in my face, it all dissapears lol.

    Yeah, we still get reports of this… but I don’t think it something people are really looking for… everybody wants to see zits while using Sustain!
