I took some new pictures for you all, but when I uploaded them to Photobucket they looked really blurry, so I'll take some with my camera instead of with my iPhone. I haven't had any new breakouts since the episode when I ran out of Zinc.
I've been so happy with my skin, it's unbelievable. I haven't had it this clear since I was like 14.
I really hope that my log and experiences have been able to help some of you, I know how hard it is to find something that works and I know that what works for me may not work for you.
In celebration of SUMMER I wanted to share a little trick with you on how to make your own TINTED MOISTURIZER that's
NOT GREASY. Yes, you read that correctly. NOT GREASY.
I know that for myself, every time I have tried to make one it has ended up making my skin look so shiny. This trick makes your skin look matte for quite some time while having light coverage for the summer and humidity.
Take your favorite foundation or mineral makeup and mix it with Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel.
I did about equal parts of each, but I have only tried it with liquid foundation. I am going to try it with my mineral makeup tomorrow and let you know how it works.
If you want the coverage to be more sheer, I would recommend you use more Aloe.
The reason I went ahead and told you that you could use mineral makeup is because all of the recipes I saw called for Mineral Makeup.
PLEASE try this out and let me know how this works for you. I would love to hear what you think!
(Some before and after pictures would be nice, too. JS)
STAY BEAUTIFUL! <3
