Help me say “Praise the Lord!” for I’ve got a testimony today!
My skin went through hell and is now back! Thank God!!
Now listen: I really can’t tell when it all started but I know when I started to take notice and focus on it I wanted to cry. My skin got real nasty… real quick … for what seemed like forever. I can’t remember having bad acne before that bar some pimples when I have my periods or when they are coming.
As I have said many times before in here, I stopped
eating or indulging on peanut butter and chocolate and I saw a reduction of the pimples on my face- cheeks, forehead and chin altogether!
When I no longer had the actual pimples, I had to work on removing the dark spots left behind.
I know I wasn’t where I wanted to be but in September this year, I had decided to go to work without makeup- apart from my eyebrows. I didn’t want powder nor foundation on my face. It was a bid deal for me because I work I a secondary school
Bottom right is where I am at this early November and it is still getting better as I am typing this post. GLORY!
I went crazy doing research online because to tell you the truth, I wanted a miracle product that would work in one day… quite literally. At the same time, I was proper and still am scared of the products with manmade bleaching agents. Yes, I want clear skin but I have my boundaries and reservations.
I was looking for more natural remedies and skincare so I went for: rose water, lemon oil, tea tree oil and black soap.
I obviously used other skincare products- the vast majority if not all contains tea tree.
For a period of time, I used 3 products from the Effaclar range from Laroche-Posay.
I really can’t tell you which one had the biggest impact on my skin but they ALL played a role to get me where I am now.
Currently, I am using rose water and witch hazel as toner, I still have some tea tree oil and black soap. I won’t say I have a routine per say but I try to keep my skin clear of makeup when I don’t “need” it.
Now I have the odd spots that come and go and I can deal with that. But I am also trying to really set a routine that I can keep up with.
I guess my conclusion to this post it to pay attention to your body and your skin, with is the largest organ of your body. You’re in your body till you die so take care of it as well as you can.
Be blessed and be empowered, always.
