In Topic: Really Oily Skin?

It could be a bit of both. The BP is definitely stripping your skin of its natural oils, which in turn tells your body to produce more oil. The skin has a natural acid mantle the maintains a protective barrier, proper pH, and other natural factors that the skin needs. When you strip that away, you cause stress and imbalance to the skin. BP can be beneficial, if used in moderation, and usually as a last resort. Look for a gentle skin care routine that will remove excess oil without stripping the skin. Good luck!

Ask your esthetician to use hard (stripless) wax. It is much gentler on the skin. Or you can ask her to apply a very thin layer of oil before applying soft (strip) wax. This can prevent the wax from adhering if too much is used, but a very small amount will allow the wax to pick up the hairs while providing a skin barrier to prevent irritation.

I take a multivitamin that has a special hair, skin and nails blend. I notice a big difference in my skin when I take it regularly. Look for one containing biotin.


In Topic: Recommendations For Face Masks

I agree with the above posts, raw honey is an amazing facial mask. I get manuka honey and add some essential oils to it- lavender, carrot seed oil, and geranium are all great for the skin. I also add a little clove essential oil as that is a natural antiseptic. Use minimal amounts of essential oils though! Good luck.

My skin has always been better when I am taking fish oil.
