Baby powder with a twist

I read a while back about mixing Talc with a bit of water to make a paste, apply it to spots and it dries them out. Gave it a try, loved it. So I decided to get creative! I bought some of cuticura’s mildly medicated talc (works wonders for itchy skin), and decided to mix it with other things to create a paste. Here are the best results so far!  1.

No water experiment!

So during a lazy period, I decided to try the “no water” thing. I’m not referring to the caveman regimen, which FYI, did my skin no favours. I mean using other products to clean my face. So my skin is insanely combination. As in it’s greasy AND dry at the same time (Wtf??!), blackheads, former acne scars, whiteheads, cysts, you get the idea. In the beginning I thought I’d use face washes. Dove Soap, acne washes, you name it. I figured, if it dries out my skin, it’ll dry out my spots right? Wrong
