A THING OR TWO ABOUT SKIN CARE

I’m no skin specialist, but I do know a thing or two about skincare. In middle school, my face broke out constantly, it was never clear from a blemish or pimple. I tried every drug store product imaginable, even Proactive, but everything was a failed attempt. It wasn’t until I started going to a dermatologist that I finally started to see a change in my skin. She prescribed a few face topicals which reduced the number of breakouts I got, I began to get facials too and realized that these simple changes were the solutions to my skin problems. tumblr_oivrqmuUnB1qgn23wo1_500

Today my skin is the clearest it’s ever been. Today I’ll be sharing with you my current skincare routine along with the products I’ve been using. Keep reading to find out some of my top tips for clear skin!

For starters: I don’t use a face mask every day, but when I do decide to have a spa night, here are the ones I use.

Masque Vivant

What it does: Purifies and tightens pores, revives and brightens complexion.

I use this no more than twice a week. I was told to mix it with baking soda to which makes it work faster and better.

Masque VIP O2

I switch on and off between these two face washes.

Step 2: Lotion P50 Toner

I use this by putting a little on a cotton pad and rubbing it all over my face and neck. More info here.

What it does: Re-hydrates skin.

This adds a little extra moisture to your skin, so I don’t use it every day since my face tends to become a little more oily.

Step 6: Cream Dermopurifiante

Here are my tips for healthier skin:

1. Drink waterI know it’s been said a million times but it’s so simple and true.

2. Lower your sugar intake. Adding un-needed sugar into your body makes hormones rage even more than they already are. This is a great tip to follow if you find that you break out more when you indulge in sugary foods.

3. Wash your pillow case. Sleeping on the same pillow every night allows dirt and oils to attach themselves to your linens. Washing your pillow case at least twice a week is one of my biggest tips for clearer skin.

4. Only wear makeup when it’s needed. You don’t need to wear makeup when going to the food store, shopping around at the mall, or running a few errands. My logic of it is; you’ll probably never see any who you see in public again, so who cares?! This little trick has seriously saved my skin.
