Some may say beauty is only skin deep, but they do not understand the half of it. Think about it, the first thing people notice when looking at you is your skin. So why can’t we all have perfection? Biologically, everyone’s skin is different. Some are blessed with the beautifully, flawless skin seen on models. Others, struggle with acne and other blemishes. Being a struggler of acne myself, I know how hard it is to have clear skin one day and be pimple-faced the next. It’s difficult, especially since makeup becomes my savior. However, it shouldn’t be! I’ve finally learned that clean, healthy skin is more important than perfection. Taking extra steps, such as moisturizing or cleansing daily, can do wonders. I always say happy skin means a happy person. But if it’s not that easy for you, and you need a little more attention for the problem areas, have no fear and see a dermatologist! They are the experts, not you! Do not spend money on products that you have no idea if they will work or not! Take action and make it happen! There is always a solution, and you will feel happier and more confident knowing that you are taking steps to healthier skin.
Over the years, I have collected acne and skin products regularly. I have a regimen that works for me and that I’d love to share with you! I wash my face about 3 or 4 times a day, probably not the best thing for my skin, but it’s my routine. I am a huge advocate for Neutrogena products, considering they actually work and are reputable. I use their oil-free grapefruit face wash, along with the scrub. I also use their oil-free moisturizer for sensitive skin, along with and eye creme, since my skin is really dry! I also use Proactive on a daily basis and recommend it for people with cystic acne. Finally, at night, I use my ointments prescribed by my dermatologist, which help with major problem areas.
Healthy skin is happy skin! Taking extra steps to help unwanted blemishes or acne could pay off in the long run and make you feel happier! Always feel confident in your own skin, and don’t be afraid to wear no makeup! You are beautiful either way!
Until Next time 🙂
