OUR ZITSTICKA SKIN DISCIPLINE REVIEW WILL TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS.
WHAT IS ZITSTICKA & HOW DOES IT WORK?
Zitsticka skin discipline is a natural supplement that is promoted for reducing inflammation, regulating oil production, and balancing the gut.
There is a strong connection between our gut microbiome and our skin which many people are unaware of.
Additionally, this product may help skin elasticity and cell turnover which is the shedding of dead skin cells and the creation of new skin.
This supplement can be taken by both males and females. They look like fish oil pills but have a minty flavor instead of a fishy flavor.
The packaging and boxing is quite nice on the outside however the capsules themselves can stick together and leak throughout the bottle making a mess.
The capsule in their product images is white but in actuality the zitsticka pills are yellow.
- Omega-3s have numerous benefits on the skin such as added hydration, elasticity, and smoothness.
- They also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Zinc has antioxidant properties, can balance hormones and enhance collagen production.
- Unfortunately in some people zinc can cause acne as it is linked to increased androgens (like testosterone) which produce pimples.
- Acidophilus, rhamnosus, plantarum, casei, bifidum: these good bacteria are important for gut health which is linked to our skin and overall health.
- Helps the immune system as a healthy immune system guarantees that our body can effectively fight off parasites, germs, and another foreign invaders that may possibly damage skin.
- This vitamin also helps balance blood sugar levels as it's a contributing factor to oily skin. This has been shown through those who have a high-glycemic diet since this type of diet induces blood glucose immunity, increases redness, oil production in the skin, and cardiovascular disease.
- Vitamin B3 is another name for Niacin. It can help the flexibility of our skin and decrease inflammation in blemishes.
- Selenium is a potent antioxidant that is a precursor to glutathione. Glutathione has been shown to be important for improving skin health.
- B6 is necessary for cell turnover and cell regeneration. Although not as strong as other vitamins, it could also help with the reduction of sebum and oiliness of the skin.
- B5 also known as Pantothenic acid has been proven effective for reducing acne lesions. In large doses it also helps reduce oil in the skin.
- Copper is a mineral that has been used as a skin preserving since ancient times. It is common in anti-aging products because it helps increase the elasticity and thickness of the skin.
- It also contains a peptide called GHK that helps lower inflammation to repair the skin.
They don’t tell you the exact amount of each ingredient on their Amazon listing. You can instead find this information on their website.
After finding this information we don’t believe there is enough of each ingredient to have a profound effect on acne.
This product contains fish and is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians. It's also gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, and all natural.
All of the most recent 5 star reviews on Amazon are customers saying they like the smell of the pills because they are minty. They don’t mention much how it’s helped their skin as they are still in the process of taking it. Just that their skin “feels healthier”.
The critical reviews say the product doesn’t work and some customers haven’t seen results.
Other Zitsticka reviews from their website mention needing to take it for at least 3 months for results. Although people are happy with the overall improvement of their skin, they still get breakouts.
The hefty price point is also something not liked by customers especially when they need to take it for 3+ months.
We also read some reddit reviews and found that it works for some and not for others as it caused nausea.
We looked for before and after photo reviews, but all we could find were photos of the pills and packaging.
- Possible negative side effects such as itchiness and redness have been reported.
- The skin may go through an adjustment period where more acne appears.
- Positive side effects like hair and nail growth have been mentioned.
PRICE & DOSING
The price for a one month supply is $44. We think this is quite expensive for 30 capsules.
The suggested dosage is 1 capsule per day. We haven’t read reviews of anyone taking more than one pill per day, but it may be possible for some people with severe acne which in that case would make the product more expensive.
WHERE TO BUY
If you are interested in this product it could be purchased from their company website as well as Amazon in the United States.
Many people look for a Zitsticka discount code as the product is expensive. Unfortunately we couldn’t find one on their Amazon listing or their website.
They did have a promotion in New York where Zitsticka gave out free zit patches.
PROS & CONS
Not suitable for vegans or vegetarians
Possible increased breakouts
Need to take the product for 3+ months
May not see any results
CONCLUSION: IS IT WORTH THE PRICE?
For disciplined skin it takes more than just omega-3 supplements. You also need to eat a diet low in sugar and dairy as those foods can exacerbate acne and affect the gut negatively.
Another downfall of the product is that most customers said they needed to take it for at least 3 months to see results. The clinical trial also done by the company was 3 months.
We think it could help some people and it's worth a try. Our recommendation however is an acne vitamin supplement called Acnetame that has a higher quality ingredient stack and has over 6000 reviews on Amazon.
