30 Day Challenge - No Picking!

10 September 2014 - 09:55 AM

 DAY 1September 10, 2014

I went on a picking craze last night and this morning my face is spotted and looking worse than it did before I touched it. My birthday is Sept. 23 and I have family coming in to stay with me for a week to celebrate.<3 My goal was to have the clearest face possible And now I goofed. This won't ruin my birthday week but I have to stop doing this. I hate this habit! It seems like it would be so easy to stop but its not!! I was browsing Acne.org and saw that someone had challenged themselves not to pick their face for 30 days and it encouraged me to try. I hope keeping track and writing it down will help me make it through!

I am going to challenge myself to not pick my face starting today all the way till the 9th f October. 

FYI I get most my acne around my mouth and cheeks. I have clogged prone skin and am using (as shown in my signature) products to help with this. My skin is trying to purge and I get little flesh bumps that turn into little zits. THIS is what I keep picking! I hate that rough little bumpy texture on my cheeks and mouth! But I have to tell myself its better than having noticeable red marks.  


  • Spotted and red because I picked at little bumps that weren't noticeable in the first place. 
  • No big bumps
  • No white heads
  • My skin texture is a little rough.

Hyaluronic Acid Reaction?...

08 September 2014 - 08:39 AM

I have done research and read about all the benefits hyaluronic acid has for the skin and I was very excited to try my new hylaluonic acid serum.  Its suppose to give your skin more moisture (if used the right way) and have no side effects or "rarely" give you an allergic reaction.  I purchased The Piping Rock brand since it seemed to have high ratings.

the Ingredients: Demineralized Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Citric Acid, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate.

I did my usual skincare routine and applied it where a serum is normally used in a routine...

Hemp Oil  for oil cleansing

CeraVe foaming cleanser

Home made apple cider vinegar toner (I have it in a spray bottle and spray my face)

*Hyaluronic acid

Benton snail bee essence 

Pat on a small amount of hemp seed oil for extra moisture

After I applied my hyaluronic acid my face started turning red and felt slightly warm. I am assuming this is an allergic reaction? I have never had an allergic reaction with anything I put on my face before. Maybe its an ingredient my skin doesn't agree with? I am wondering if its the apple cider vinegar toner I used before? Perhaps they don't mix well together.

Has anyone else had a problem with hyaluronic acid??

Cosdna - Analyze Cosmetics Ingredients. Helpful!

02 May 2014 - 02:28 PM


I recently found this wonderful site called CosDNA that helps with determining if ingredients will aggravate your skin. You can type down a products name Or, If they don't have the product, just list the ingredients of product your curious about and it will give you a chart that shows if it would - cause/irritate acne - Be an irritant - and how bad it is for your skin. And I'm pretty sure you can use it to not only check makeup but skincare products too of course!

I find it helpful and I thought I would share it ^_^
