  1. Up until recently I never thought my face was clean unless it was "squeaky" clean, but then I had to add a moisturizer to take away the tightness. Now I realize that our skin makes it's own oil to protect us and there I was washing it all away with irritants. With my lifestyle, I doubt my face gets so dirty that I have to scrub it clean. Anyway, try it and see how it goes... I was exactly the same way. It's pretty funny. People get rid of their acne, but still crave the perfect skin. I know i
  2. The city of live in sends out a water quality report and the pH is listed as 8.0. That helped me understand why my skin always feels so tight. I then ordered some pH strips and the tap water read 7.0. I don't know what accounts for the difference - either the tests strips aren't all that accurate (hope not!) or the pH changes as it travels through the pipes leading to my faucets. Anyway, I decided to always apply something to my face after a shower that is pH balanced. I decided on distille
  3. Ah, that explains a lot. SLS is pretty harsh and irritating - I had to buy shampoo and conditioner free of it because I had scalp acne occurring awhile ago, too. I never have worn makeup, so then this should be something for me to think about. I use the same toner as you, and I have acv stored up in my cabinet somewhere. Heck, I used to drink 1 tbsp of it a night because I heard it can help acne that way. But I threw up one night and I can't handle that anymore. Adding a few drops in the toner i

  5. Which Burt's Bees product do you use exactly and do you feel that it has been helpful? Oh. Haha, I'm so sorry! I made a typo. I constantly mix these two products up. I meant St. Ives. I use the St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control. My opinion on it is... well, the one part of my face which has NEVER had acne - which is my cheeks - are CONSTANTLY soft and smooth now, unlike before when they would be soft only when I was out of the shower. However, my forehead, n
  6. Alright. So, I want to try this, but I'm slightly nervous. I currently drink 16 cups of water and 3 cups of specific tea a day. I use Burt Bees exfoliater in the shower and then but on a super concentrated green tea homemade toner afterwards. It's a lot of stuff for me to do in one day, and I still have bumps in my t-zone! It's frustrating! Can I do this without drinking the lemon/lime?
  7. Try oatmeal. Watch this video, it explains how to use it and the benefits it has: I hope it helps!
  8. How well does that work? I bought a tub of oatmeal awhile ago after watching a review on Youtube from Bubzbeauty. I never used it, though... I got too scared from it possibly worsening my skin (I dunno how, I just am really scared of putting new products on my skin) I used to use honey religiously but it never helped a whole lot. I have persistent acne on my chin, nose, and forehead. So yeah. xD
  9. Hi again! ^^ I guess I just wanted to give a quick update. The first week of using this, it cleared all of my spots. I have to say, I was super impressed. The next week, my cheeks were a little more dry than ordinary. I assume it was just my skin getting used to the toner. Now - my skin is fantastic. The skin tone is even, I RARELY get a bump, and it feels soft/normal. For once I'm not worrying a huge deal about my skin. And the great thing is that I can just apply it and go about my day. It's
  10. Great news! How many times a day are you applying the solution? Twice a day! :) I love how it's light and I can't tell it's there - and it doesn't look like it's there either. Also, I went out and bought the green tea with mint in it today. Excited to try that out. :D
  11. Just wanted to give a quick update. My skin is almost 100% clear, and I'm certain it's because of this. Before, I was using honey as a moisturizer and salicylic acid as a treatment. I stopped both and instead just used this toner. It's the only thing I put on my face. I have just a little bit of scarring on my chin, but I added some lemon juice in the toner and I think it's gradually lightening the scars. My nose area looks much better, and the few blemishes I had on my upper cheeks are fading.
  12. Just curious...what kind of tea did you use and how did you apply it? Hi Ginger. C: What I did was take Bigelow Green Tea (It comes in bags and normally packs of 20). I boiled that with the salt and let it cool for a few hours. I then applied it with cotton balls (I think I'll use my fingers though, because I have the crappy cotton balls). I let that sit for a few minutes, and took a shower. When I came out I reapplied it with the cotton balls and let it just sit the whole night through. I

  15. I did apply after as well. C: I left it on all night as I slept, and it felt really cooling. My face is so soft this morning and my blemishes are MUCH smaller and are less red in color. This is so exciting! I can't wait to see the long term benefits as I use it more. I can't thank you enough!
