Happy Monday Folks!
With the weather heating up I thought today would be a great time to talk about maintaining healthy skin. During graduate school my stress would mostly manifest through skin breakouts! I could go from clear skin to a face full of breakouts in a matter of days. While I am definitely not a dermatologist, over the years I’ve learned which products work best for my skin and perhaps you can find some tools that may be useful for you as well.
I think all beauty regimens should include a deep cleansing tool of some sort. My Clarisonic works wonders for me! It provides 2 minutes worth of high pulsating exfoliation for my face. It’s also great for removing makeup! I’ve been using this product for a while and I’ve noticed a reduction in the number of breakouts that I get – even during high stress periods in school. Even better: I was able to order the Clarisonic in my favorite color and get it engraved with my name!
The Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub from Clean & Clear has been a staple of mine for many years – even before I started using the Clarisonic. It has a minty smell to it and provides a soft tingling sensation when used on your skin. I love the small beads because it gives my skin a deep scrub and helps to remove all of the dirt and oil that has accumulated. I tend to use the exfoliating scrub and the Clarisonic together for maximum cleansing!
Face wipes are a girl’s best friend! I love facial wipes because they can be used at anytime during the day and are small enough to pack in a bag or a purse. I have always had super oily skin so I use facial wipes during the day to help remove excess oil from my face. These are also good for removing makeup. I also like wipes because they are quick and do not leave my face feeling super dry after using them.
I also love the Fade Cream by Ambi! I struggled with acne (like most teens) growing up and as a result I have small dark circles on my lower cheeks. I use the fade cream to help even out my skin tone and to lighten the dark spots. The fade cream also works for new blemishes! If I see a pimple forming I can use the fade cream on it and by morning, the pimple is gone! This stuff is the bomb.com!
For those of you looking to try out new products I would definitely recommend these. I have been using the same products for years and they have worked pretty well for my skin. In addition to drinking lots of water (I hear lemon is helpful for acne) using these tools has helped me to maintain pretty healthy skin.
