Sorry for the absence but alot has happened in the past two weeks. First off, i went to my college orientation that lasted a couple of days where i had to stay on campus. With that being said, i couldnt bring my aloe, charcoal tablets, sugar, clay and etc with me and to do it each night. When it was over i had my wisdom teeth taken out and i didn't follow up on the skin care routine with that happening. So i didnt do it for a whole week, and since my wisdom teeth were taken out ive been taking 5
My scars are fading, whitewhead galore stopped happening as did the initial breakout, and my acne hasn't been coming in full force and so often anymore! I cant believe just a couple months ago i had severe acne that was persistent since my freshman year of high school. Im starting college in late August and I have regained so much confidence I once had before. I really do think the zinc is the cause of the acne not coming back since it is the only thing I am taking internally for acne. As for th
First off my scars are healing. You know i am seeing progress when i i have to literally get up and close on the mirror and try to find them. people say they use aloe vera for their acne and the scars to. i cant personally say whether it is healing my acne but it definitely is helping my scar a lot. if i knew i could get this result i wouldn't have wasted my time( or money) on prescription drugs like tretinion that were supposed to help that.
second the amount of whiteheads im getting is dec
I didnt feel the need to post if there werent any significant changes so sorry for being MIA.
I have whiteheads all over my cheeks! why am I happy about that? Because I ONLY have Whiteheads and its ONLY on my cheeks. If you read my other posts from when I started I would get cysts, those red one that you could feel your heart beat in and feel inflamed, regular zitz and they would be on my forehead or on my cheeks or my nose or under my chin or the jawline...well you get the idea. I haven't se
I'm noticing more whiteheads coming up to the surface of my skin. Since its still the beginning im sure it will go away by next week. Also the zinc might being pushing it out from the inside since I've read that it could do that.
Not much to say here. I have noticed that im getting more breakouts due to the masks im using.
Before I forget I forgot to mention that I am also taking zinc supplements for acne. I heard people say that it balances hormones and help clear acne so fingers crossed.
Before I get into my first experience with this I would like to state that I'm only doing at night. in the mornings all I do is wash my face with my soap and then apply the Aloe Vera Gelly by Lily of the Dessert and go on with my day.
Step 1: pre wash with water. not much to say on this, I just found it easier to exfoliate in the next step by using hot water in this step.
Step 2: Charcoal and aloe vera gelly exfoliator. First thing, this gets very messy. before I mix the 2 together I spray
MY routine is as follows:
Step 1 prewash: I wash my face with only water for about 15-20 seconds.
Step 2 exfoliation/mask: I make my own exfoliation using activated charcoal tablets and aloe vera gel. about 3 pills/ tablets depending what size you bought, make a guess on how much will cover your face. I exfoliate for about 2-3 minutes and leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse off.
step 3: wash my face with a soap. you can use whatever you like, I personally use Asepxia neutral soa
Hello, welcome to my new blog. Basically I will share the new skin care routine I will be trying and share whether or not it is helping me.
First I will get into a little backstory on my acne experience. I started breaking out during my spring break of freshman year when I was 14. before I did have one or two at a time, but this was way worse. I came back from break with breakouts literally everywhere on my face. it was al over my cheeks, my chin, my jawline, and along my eyebrows. at that ti
