Current Obsession

By Dreamy,

[size=5][b][font=georgia, serif][color=#66CC66]My current obsession right now:[/color][/font][/b][/size]

[font=georgia, serif]As ridiculous as this may sound, it's been working for me and showed results almost immediately (2~3 days).[/font]

[font=georgia, serif]***I've been using [size=5][i]filtered, drinking water[/i][size=4] to wash my face for the past few days, and currently I have zero breakouts...whereas usually I would definitely have a couple of explosions or mild cysts here and there. ***[/size][/size][/font]

[font=georgia, serif]The reason why I started doing this was because I noticed that after moving downtown (for college), I've been experiencing a lot more breakouts. The water is pretty rough here so I thought I would try washing my face with cleaner water from my brita filter... and the next day I noticed that my skin was a lot softer and a lot of my inflammations had died down. [/font]

[b][font="georgia, serif"]How do I do it?[/font][/b]
[font="georgia, serif"]Honestly, I feel pretty ghetto doing it haha, I just took a plastic bottle lying around from a sprayer, cleaned it nicely, and put filtered water inside. I basically use one hand to wash my face with cleanser and then pour water into the same hand and rinse it off. I feel like a cat washing itself. It's pretty inefficient and more time consuming so I've been trying to find ways to make this process better. Any ideas? [/font]

[b][font="georgia, serif"]Background on my skin:[/font][/b]
[font="georgia, serif"]Fighting moderate to severe acne for more than 3 years now, it started when I was 17.[/font]
[font="georgia, serif"]I have a lot of pigmentation and bunch of red scars pretty much everywhere on my face. Quite a few indents near the cheek area as well.[/font]
[font="georgia, serif"]In the past year it's gotten better. Usually I'll have a few areas with pimples but right now there are no bumps (thanks to the water for now!)[/font]
[font="georgia, serif"]I wear makeup everyday (bb cream + powder), so I make sure to cleanse my face very well. [/font]
[font="georgia, serif"]I've tried many things and decided to go with mostly natural remedies since that's what seems to work best for me.[/font]

[b][font=georgia, serif]Other Current Personal Favorites:[/font][/b]
[font=georgia,serif]Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Gentle Scrub (green bottle)[/font][list]
[*][font=georgia,serif]Definitely not a fan of over the counter products, but I absolutely love this one. Especially because I wear a lot of makeup everyday, I do a thorough cleanse every night which really dries out my skin. But after using my makeup removing foam-wash, I always use this product all over my face and massage it gently for about a minute. It leaves my skin moisturized and soothed. Although it's a scrub, I use it daily and it helps a lot. [/font]
[font=georgia,serif]Vitamin E (capsules)[/font][list]
[*][font=georgia,serif]Once every 1-2 weeks. [/font]
[font=georgia,serif]Other things I've been doing obsessively:[/font][list]
[*][font=georgia,serif]Washing pillow case very, very frequentl[/font]y
[*][font=georgia, serif]Sanitizing phone with cotton and rubbing alcohol[/font]
[*][font=georgia, serif]Sanitizing keyboard[/font]
[*][font=georgia, serif]Drinking water before bed[/font]
[font="georgia, serif"]There was so much more I wanted to write....but I'll go sleep for now. :)[/font]
