After changing my routine my skin has really improved. The tone of my skin has really changed for the better. My pores have shrunk and are no longer as visible and large as they used to be. Thankfully there has been no new breakouts. Taking in mind it's well...that time of the month. A lot of the whiteheads on my forehead have shrunk and I have no blackheads on my chin or the sides of my nose. (I usually get them there and have them stay.) Here is my routine again. 1.Wash 2 times day and night with Clearasil Utra Rapid action cleansing gel 2.Follow with a sea salt scrub once daily in the shower. (Just plain organic sea salt with a little bit of warm water using circular motions on my face.) 3.Use a q-tip to apply tea tree oil (not diluted) to pimples at night before bed. 4. Use Lush's Gorgeous moisturizer once a week (If I use it every day my skin tends to break out badly.) 5.Use Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask once a week during summer and twice a week during the winter. I have normal to combination skin. I hope this helps someone have a routine that helps them!
So I changed up my regimen and about three whiteheads have gone from my forehead and my pimples are shrinking noticably. 1.Twice daily wash with Clearisil Ultra Rapid action Gel Wash (Once in the morning and once a night) 2. Use a sea salt scrub once at night after cleanising in the shower (Straight sea salt with a little hot water) 3. Apply tea tree oil all over my face and add extra using a q-tip to blemishes 4. Use Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask once every two weeks
I cannot seem to get rid of these horrible white heads on my forehead...ugh! Nothing has seemed to help it. I do not wear my hair in my face..and should I stop using my moisturizer? I use Lush's gorgeous moisturizer. Any advice will be helpful...maybe I am using too many products?
So I added some C. Booth tea tree oil toner to my regimen due to my job cutting in my time. I do not have time to mix and dilute my tea tree and peppermint oil. So I bought new and fresh tea tree oil and added extra in the C.Booth toner. The blemishes are gone on my chin and cheeks. I have no more blackheads! I had a horrible whitehead on the underside of my nose. It finally cleared up after a few days. The whiteheads on my forehead have decreased but I cannot seem to get rid of them! If anyone has advice I would greatly appreciate it! My forehead is always a problem area.
So I added Clean and Clear blackhead eraser scrub to my regimen. I had noticed a horrible amount of blackheads on my chin. I usually get them on the sides of my nose and on my chin. I love this scrub! It makes my skin feel super clean and leaves a cool feeling. After two days of using the scrub, the blackheads and pimples on my chin are completely gone! The worst area with pimples *my forehead* has improved. The pimples have decreased in size but they still remain. I am adding peppermint oil as a toner also. *you will only need one tiny drop of peppermint oil to a big glass of water* I do have patches of dry skin but my Lush moisturizer will help with this! I also wanted to recomend a makeup remover. I am goth and wear alot of eye makeup. I usually use a sunscreen or primer *depending on if I am going out during the day or night*, Hard Candy glamoflauge concelor, Mary Kay mineral foundation, and Coty airspun transculcent powder. I use Hard Candy Take it off liquid makeup remover in the shower. This is the best remover I have used! It removes waterproof mascera as well. I always take off my makeup before going to bed. Always! The tea tree oil I have has not given me amazing results. I also think that maybe my oil is expired after having it for a long time. So I am moving on to try peppermint oil. Wish me luck!
So for a few months my skin was beautiful. I had a blemish pop up occasionally on my chin but nothing to worry about. Until I tried an Olay product. *Go Fresh shine eliminating cleanser* I got it free as a sample and used it for two days. Literally the first thing I saw when I woke up was more then 20 pimples on my forehead, pimples on my cheeks, and everywhere! I tossed that nonsense in the garbage. Good thing I did not buy it! So here is my new regimen! 1.Wash face 2x a day with Clairisil Rapid Action gel cleanser *morning and night* 2. Use Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask *two times a week* 3. Use Tea tree oil as a spot treatment *once a day, at night* 4.Use Lush's Gorgeous moisturizer following the tea tree oil *2x a day..after cleansing and at night after tea tre oil* Wish me luck!
