How Nzu affected my skin and menstrual cycle.

Honestly speaking, it hasn't been easy. For 3 months or more, I have been battling with my face. At first, it stopped glowing in the morning, and I was like, "Maybe it's the phase of life I was in at that point in time." I was literally very stressed emotionally. You all know how life sets you up after you've just graduated from university. It's literally so crazy trying to follow the right path and make proper decisions that will help you in life. So much was going on, but one thing was certain: I was eating well, taking lots of liquids, but my water intake was less, and I ate Nzu like never before.

Wondering what Nzu is? The English name is (Calabash chalk). It is a geophagic material popularly consumed in West African countries for pleasure, and by pregnant women as a cure for nausea.

Geophagia is the practice of eating the earth, including soil and chalk. This act can expose the consumer to toxic substances and parasites found in the ingested earth. #WIKI

My Nzu consumption increased when I travelled back to Nigeria, and this is because it was readily available and I ended up abusing it. Honestly, I can say I ate nothing less than 150 pieces of Nzu in the space of two months. After a few months, I got back to Europe, and everything started falling apart.

1. Firstly, I started noticing some changes in my menstrual cycle, like heavy flow (I used an average of 13 sanitary pads in 2 days), menstrual pain, and acne. Before now, I had never experienced such changes.
2. Next, it was my skin; it got really dry and started to itch as a result. So I had to increase the amount of cream I applied, take more water, and eat more fruits to help my skin.
The reason is that without proper water consumption, our skin dries off because water is needed to moisturise it. Nzu is clay, and clay is thick, so much water is needed for its absorption in the body.

At this point, I understood what the cause of the problem was, but I couldn't stop because I was probably "addicted," or so to say, "an Nzu junkie."

About 2 weeks ago, I decided to put an end to this problem. I was not happy with the condition of my skin. Waking up to new pimples every morning that ends up leaving marks because they get really itchy and you just can't help but scratch.

I tried various skin products but they made the condition of my skin even worst. If you are following me on Instagram, you will be aware that I had a 6-day trip. I was planning to visit the dermatologist after I got back from this trip (which I will be sharing soon on the Blog). During my trip I maintained a healthy diet, I was so mindful of what I ate because I was trying to avoid having diarrhea. So indirectly my skin improved because I maintained a healthy diet.

I received the Multifunctional Pure and Natural Moisturizing Aloe Vera Gel after I returned from my trip.I was super excited to try it, but at the same time, I was a little sceptical because I have used some products that really lightened my skin. The aloe vera gel is for acne treatment, anti-wrinkle, oil control, and moisturising the skin.

Note: It lightened my skin a little bit. After the acne cleared off, I kept on applying very little aloe vera gel every two days to keep my skin glowing. My joy is that it is working, and I am happy to share this product with you. This is a totally good product, and generally, we know how good it is to use Aloe Vera on the skin; it's pretty healthy and natural. It's in gel form, like the aloe vera watery paste.

How to use: Wash your face in the morning or after your bath. Allow the water to almost dry off with the help of natural air. Apply the Aloe Vera gel just before applying your BB cream or makeup, and massage it in thoroughly. Do the same at night. This is not a washout gel.

If you want to purchase this product, it's pretty easy because you can get it from so many websites. I will be leaving the links below.
