I'm acne free. thanks to diane-35. don't worry about my skin as much. i still have discoloration from previous marks but it's alot better.
In shower i wash my face with a tea-tree face wash (Desert Essence one)
moisturizer: organic sweet almond oil.
almay natural tinted moisturizer or dior hydrafluid if i want to look good
if i have worn makeup/left the house
wash my face with tea-tree face wash
moisturize with sweet almond oil.
Zinc: 50 mg 1x
vitamin A (optional)
i will use a bag of green tea as a toner sporadically during the day (1x) if i have enough time. I find green tea to calm my skin.
i use aspirin mask once every couple of weeks.
I absolutely stay away from:
benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid
oil-free products (natural oils are good for you especially in healing your skin)
Finding a day-time moisturizer that has SPF, is natural and won't irritate my skin!
I firmly believe that:
less is more
natural is the way to go
the power of moisturizing...even for oily skin
redness is a sign of irritation
perfection is unattainable and pointless
