So I've been off my Clarisonic for..this is probably my 5th day. At first, like I said, it seemed to be a good thing. However, I am going through a pretty bad breakout right now but I have no idea if it's from the Clarisonic or not. I have four pimples on my forehead (two new, two healing) and four on my right side all along my smile line. Then I have two clogged pores on the left side of my mouth. The new pimples that are forming are very small, yet irritating, and they are all RIGHT NEXT to th
I went ahead and decided to ditch the Clarisonic for a week or so. It's nearly been two months and there's no real evidence of it doing anything! I don't feel it's helped with redness, scars, breakouts or anything. Well, it does remove makeup like a boss, but so does my homemade makeup remover. The breakout I got this week consists of one pretty large pimple on my forehead that is simply big and red. No head yet. I also have two red pimples on my right jaw and one small, inflamed clogged pore
So, within a single day of using straight rose hip seed oil on my skin I got a breakout. I did more research and found that that oil is actually not recommended for acne-prone skin, though it is excellent for scars. So, I am not currently using that oil anymore. Also, I've changed my carrier oil to Tamanu Oil. It's supposedly one of the top oils for curing skin issues, everything from wrinkles to hyperpigmentation to acne.

As far as acne goes, my face is extremely tolerable. I almost always have one or two small whiteheads on my face but they generally go away within a few days on their own and are easily coverable with makeup. I'm very pleased with my progress and will continue my regimen. My face is wonderfully smooth and soft. It is balanced, never feeling too tight or too oily. My makeup blends into my face easily and, with a single layer of foundation, I quite enjoy my complexion. My real enemy now is
It's been two weeks to the day since my last entry, so I guess that makes today the one month mark! Yay! Acne has definitely improved. I was even clear for a few days but have just begun a new breakout. Mild, yet irritating. Forehead is clear, 1 pimple on my hairline on the right side, 1 healing pimple on my chin and 2 pimples by my nose on my left side. These two pimples, which would be small on their own, are forming 1 large pimple. I hate when that happens. I'm applying heat to try to
If ya'll haven't seen the new Disney movie, Frozen, yet, go now! It's amazing. I say this because the title to my post is in reference to one of their songs haha. Anyways! This is the third blog I've started regarding my acne. If you want a full back story, read my two other blogs and you'll get all caught up. But this isn't to inform anyone, simply to help me keep track of any progress. You see, I've realized that the one thing I haven't tried for my acne is to STICK WITH A REGIMEN.
