I'm pleased to announce that my use of cheap drugstore chemicals to treat my problematic/ oily acne skin is over. FINISHED haha. This is the first day in a year I haven't slathered some cheap, harmful substance on my face in a feeble attempt to control the endless amount of bumps and oily mess that has decided to call my face home. I realized that using benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid wasn't banishing pimples as they were advertised. What I've been doing is stripping my skin of everything it needed to be youthful, and without that youthful glow, your skin mind as well belong to someone who's old with wrinkles. Yuck. I will be tracking my results from this day on. My routine will consist of showering every other day with very limited contact with my face. I will allow a little bit of water to run across my face just to get all the oily mess off every 3 or so days. It's only day one and I can feel my skin thanking me for cutting off the cheap, abusive chemicals. The texture and bumpiness still remains but that is to be expected because it's only the end of the first day. What I have noticed is that there isn't an oily shine which usually makes itself known only a few hours after BP use. I enjoy this and it is an incentive to keep at this. I will post agin tomorrow and give a full report on my skin's progress in these stages of natural healing. Please anyone who comes across this feel free to comment and give me feedback. Thanks!
