For the last few months, my skin has been absolutely horrible! ever since around January when I moved back to Oregon it was a total nightmare. My skin has been dry and flaky and won’t stop breaking out. Anytime that I would try to apply anything moisturizing it would only make things worse. My skin would be oily in some places and the saharah dessert in others I honestly had no idea what to do.
When my skin goes crazy I normally go back to what I know my go to products from high school that seemed to cure anything. However nothing was working. So I started reading other peoples blogs for ideas. I did hours and I mean hours of research on skin and what effects it and what breaks it out.
Plan of attack :
I cleaned all off my makeup brushes and then cleaned them every single time I used them. This didn’t seem to have much of an effect on my face. ( usually cleaned them once a week before) If you would like to see how I clean them please comment below.
I cut out sugar and dairy. For those of you who do not know ,I am a pastry chef and this one was nearly impossible . It is part of my job to eat both of these items, not that I am complaining my job is awesome lol! Just made this step rather difficult. Oh and my addiction to mac and cheese didn’t really help either .
Switch my whole skincare Routine
Cleanser : The cleanser that I can not get enough of is slightly on the expensive side at 23$ but honestly the key to my whole skincare routine. It is all organic well close to all organic and locally made in fair oaks by a small business. I am obsessed to say the least. I believe this product it what changed my face I am now on my second bottle and still in love with it! Which says a lot for me, I’m all about trying new things. The product is by Esthetic Arts , it is the Purifying Peppermint Cleansing Gel. It is for all skin types it has eucalyptus leaf oil, peppermint leaf oil and sage oil.
Pads: The next step for me was something to help resurface my skin , Due to the mass amount of acne I had a lot of scaring on my face, which to be honest bothered me. Not that my skin is starting to age more, I have a hard time getting rid of acne, it used to be a lot faster, or maybe I just didn’t care back then. I wanted a refusing wipe, that would help fight my acne as well as resurface my face and help me get rid of scars. I found the magical Cane Austin Acne Treatment Pads I use the 5% glycolic and 2% salicylic acid. This is the most gentile ones that they offer. These have truly transformed my face and bought it back to normal .
Spot Treatment: Origins Spot Treatment , this lovely fellow has been my rock though it all stoping every zit in its track! but seriously! This stuff is amazeballs! I also love The Clean And Clear one from the drugstore.
