I finally received my Amazon shipment of natural skincare items and decided to put the oils to the test.
Background info: I (stupidly) resorted to laser treatment for surface imperfections and it made everything worse + broke me out like CRAZY! I haven't broken out this bad since I tried that evil Murad acne system almost ten years ago! Anyways, it's been a depressing few weeks as I watch my complexion get worse everyday. I decided to clear it naturally, after the OTC acne products aggravated my tender skin and left huge red blotches, more oiliness and dried out spots (I can't win!)
Last night I removed my makeup with Costco's organic EVOO. I rinsed and wiped excess then put the organic Coconut oil on a wet face. It felt really greasy. Then I rubbed in some organic cold-pressed castor oil. I trained myself to sleep on my back and this morning--many finicky blackheads are GONE, all the painful, red, bumps are fleeting and for once, my face doesn't hurt. It's the first morning in weeks since there was not some evil new eruption peaking on my skin.
I hope this works out for me in the long run. I feel like I am a dog chasing its own tail in my quest for healthy skin. It's so unfortunate how much damage OTC acne products done--the industry robbed me of good skin and I've been stuck in a vicious cycle or resorting to more hurtful products to fix the problems from the previous product. AH! I need this to work so that I can quit further damaging my skin and actually give it something healthy that has the potential to clear skin and help with anti-aging. :::crossing my fingers!:::
