So, you know how your skincare regimen works for a hot second and you think, “Wow! I finally have this skincare thing under control…”, then, BOOM: you breakout worse than you ever did in your teens. Well, here are my new revised suggestions… until they stop working.
African Black Soap
It’s as simple as its name: a bar of soap that happens to be a lovely shade of… well, black. It’s simple: wash your face with it twice a day. Yes. You heard me-wash your face. Simple, right? This stuff is so great at removing dirt and oil that I use it for my makeup brushes and even the dreaded cleansing of the beauty blender. GUYS-it cleans the beauty blender. No need to say anything more. Oh, one more thing-it’s CHEAP!
Shea Moisture also makes a great scrub for acne prone skin. I use this twice a week (sometimes more in the winter) to remove dead skin and keep my skin feeling soft.
Moisturizer with Collagen
St. Ives makes a great moisturizer containing both Collagen and Elastin. I’m hesitant to admit that I need it, but… it definitely does the job when it comes to fine lines and *gulp* wrinkles. It’s very affordable and a little bit goes a long way.
