There are sooooo many products out on the market. Your BFF may LOVE a certain product but it just didn’t work well for you. Everyone’s skin is different, so how do you know what products are best for you?
I’m going to help guide you through that process. I’m very conscientious of what I put on my skin. Most of what we put on our skin get absorbed into our bloodstream so I’m picky picky about what I’m using. Everything I’m mentioning in this post is harsh chemical free, all natural, vegan, paraben free, and leaping bunny certified.
Oily/Acne Prone Skin
When you have oily and or acne prone skin, it’s import not to over wash and to moisturize. A lot of people don’t want to moisturize because they are afraid they will make their skin even more oily. With the right moisturizer, this will not happen. In fact, the opposite will happen. When you wash your face with a harsh cleanser, to the point that it’s squeaky clean, it strips your skin of its oils. This is turn makes your skin produce MORE oil, to compensate for the fact that you just took it all away. You want to try to balance your skin’s chemistry with your routine. What you need is a good cleanser, moisturizer that isn’t too heavy, and a mask that will help gently clear any acne you may have. What I recommend:
Dream clean is the best cleanser I’ve ever used hands down. It contains Soapberry which allows it to naturally foam, which is usually a chemical process. This ingredient also combats acne-causing bacteria. The cleanser will remove your makeup, which I really appreciate. No double cleansing, unless you prefer to. Also, Soapberry has proven to inhibit melanin production, which will reduce the appearance of age spots and sun spots. Use this cleanser in the morning and again in the evening.
Cool Balm is a light moisturizer. It is made of a combination of extracts from Aloe Vera, Cucumber, and rare Kendi Seed, as well as a combination of restorative plant extracts. This moisturizer will calm your skin thanks to the Aloe extract. The Candida Saitoana Extract will protect your skin from breakouts and inflammation. This is a great twice a day moisturizer for those with oily skin. It is a,so a great restorative moisturizer for those with rosacea and irritated or overly sun-kissed skin.
Masque of Zen is a gentle, acne fighting mask with Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, White Carrot Oil, and Cinnamon Bark. These ingredients work together to fight all the major causes of skin imbalance, Cinnamon Bark Extract is an ingredient from Sri Lanka that is a mild astringent and will help regulate bacteria without throwing off the skin cell balance. Tea Tree Oil has long been known as a natural combatant to bacteria that causes acne and inflammation. For those with acne, the mask should be used 3-4 times per week for the first two weeks and then 1-2 times per week ongoing. It also makes a Greta spot treatment for pimples. Apply to a blemish before bed and in the morning it will be greatly reduced, ready for extraction, or gone.
