Sorry For Not Posting!



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 seen any of those nasty ones on my face since starting.

Im not to worried about the whiteheads, when I exfoliate, wash, and then use the aztec clay mask alot of them disappear or get smaller.

My acne marks are fading!!!! This aloe vera gelly really works!!!! I have had acne since freshman year (I just graduated high school a couple weeks ago) so I essentially have four yrs or scars with me. And I have never used anything for scars that got me this close to a scar free face, not even prescription topicals. They are still there but they are significantly lighter and my red one are gone. I even got a few compliments saying that the scars are disappearing.

And lastly, I've incorporated sea salt to the regimen, I added it to the step to exfoliate with charcoal, I felt that the charcoal alone couldn't give me a good exfoliation, so I used the sea salt and I noticed the whitehead being property exfoliated. There really hasnt been significant change to routine, just the addition of sea salt to aid exfoliation.

Hi L,

I hope you are having a good summer. I haven't been following your blog really closely: what is your regimen exactly?

Hi Leanna,

I did a blog post on what my regimen but since I have modified it a bit I'm more than happy to mention it again :)

1. Prewash my face with water: preferably warm to help with opening pores.

2. Activated Charcoal scrub/mask: initially I started using only activated charcoal and aloe Vera gel but It wasnt a good exfoliation alone, so I added sea salt but I feel that sea salt is harsh for my skin so as of now it is... 3 activated charcoal capsules, 1 tbs of brown sugar, 1/2 a tbs of aloe vera gel and 1/2 a tbs of lemon juice. I exfoliate for 1 minute or 2 and leave it as a mask for 5 minutes. Then wash off.

3. Wash my face with my facial soap: now that my pores are open It allows the medicine from the soap to get into the pores more efficiently. I use Asepxia neutral soap which contains salicylic and glycolic acid which can be found in stores like walgreens.

4. I use Aztec healing clay: once my face is dry but my pores are still open apply this calcium bentonite clay to help draw out everything. I mix it with equal parts of lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and the clay, though if its too watery add more clay powder until you have a nice consistency. I leave it on for about an hour.

5. After I wash the mask off with warm water, I moisturize using aloe vera gelly from Lily of the Desert. I've been using this in the morning as well and I've noticed my dark marks lightening significantly.

And this regimen is used at night, my morning routine consists of just washing my face and moisturizing.

Also!!!!!! Im taking zinc 50mgs once a day. I forgot to mention that, im sure thats why im at whitehead overload because supposedly theres a purge thing with zinc but I think its helping along with the rest of the routine
