It has been a long time since I have posted about my skin and I thought I would give you an update on it.
I have a routine where I cleanse with Lush Aqua Marina or Lush 9 to 5.
I tone with Tea Tree Water.
I moisturize with Enzymion.
And for night time, I just cleanse and use grease lightning for spots. But that is not the point, I am not here to talk about my skin routine. I want this blog to be about being confident in your skin.
In my Instagram post, I did a before and after image. One of me without makeup and one with makeup on.
Explaining that I felt I don’t usually wear makeup, as I am confident in my spot prone/oily skin. And I don’t like to cake my face in products. I feel more myself when I wear no makeup.
If and when I do wear makeup it will be for a special event. I wore this makeup look for a work party. It did make me feel pretty along with my new dress.
But I guess what I am trying to say is that it’s important to love yourself and the skin you are in. And you can pile on all the makeup you want to cover up but it’s important to love what is underneath too.
Noted as well as the skincare, I am now taking a natural capsule called Blue Flag by 21st Century Herbs which I take every morning. And this also seems to be working and have no side effects 🙂
I can have all this skin care and take all the meds that can work (or not) but at the very root of it, I need to accept myself for who I am and know that my skin will probably always be acne prone. I just need to own my flaws.
