I get requests to upload videos about my skin care routine a lot! I’ve been getting these requests for over a year now, and I’ve been putting it off because I was testing out different products and waiting to see long term results. I didn’t want to recommend something to you guys and regret it later on. So here it is! The full list of everything I have been using to treat my adult acne! It’s a short list, but the products are quite effective. My skin is finally clearing up, looking brighter, healthier, and more fresh, and I’m so happy about it!
p.s. Thanks for all the advice in the comments and to my inbox, on eating better and drinking more water, I definitely agree! I have been battling acne for a long time, and I consider myself to be quite healthy. I drink lots of water and am obsessed with veggies! I believe that there can be other factors besides what we are eating, including stress levels and life situations that can cause a breakdown in your immune system and health, causing breakouts. Not to mention genetics! My mom has always had acne and still battles adult acne to this day. But besides genetics, the past three years has been extemely stressful, I’m pretty sure that’s where a lot of my breakouts came from. I’ve moved over 4 times in the past three years (including two different states), and have been self-employed for over 4 years. That kind of stress tends to have a big impact on your health and appearance.
Also, this video isn’t really about “How To Maintain Clear Healthy Skin,” if that was the case, I would definitely include how important it is to be healthy in your everyday lifestyle, like always! But my requests were to show what products I use to reduce the amount of acne that I currently have on my skin, which is why the video is so product focused. (The only time I will ever make a “How To Have Clear Healthy Skin” video is if I was able to maintain my clear healthy skin for more than a year, which I haven’t been able to do since I was 13!) Of course, 100% natural products are what I want to use on my skin. I’ve tried many forms of 100% natural products on my skin and most haven’t worked for me. Rather than damage my skin any more, and with much insistence from my worried mom (lol… you know how it is…), I decided to just go for the next best thing, Naturally “Derived”.
That’s why my New Year’s Resolution this year was to “Have Fun!” I’m trying to find a healthy balance between work and play, (instead of all work and no play which has caused me a lot of stress). That way, once my skin clears up, I’ll be able to give 100% natural face care products another go. I just don’t want to create damage on top of damage that could be irreversible. Also, I need the time to get settled into a routine first before venturing out again. But my life goals are, of course, to live a balanced, happy, healthy, and natural lifestyle, so I will do what it takes to get there! Sometimes we just hit a little road block and need to hit rewind for a second to re-group.
So anyway, I hope the video helps guys!
