How I Overcame My Skin Problems

Growing up through my teenage years, I was fortunate enough to have good skin. I don't mean to say my skin was perfect - I did have the breakouts here and there. Plus, I never liked the fact that I had super oily skin and still do. A lot of people have said this is something I should appreciate as it means I will have good skin when I start to age. Here are a few tips to control those blemishes and oily skin.

I'm sure you've heard this so many times and this goes out to everyone. DRINK WATER! It has amazing benefits and helps with keeping your skin clear. Last month I was certainly not someone that enjoyed drinking water. But I decided to buy a water bottle and drink water when I felt thirsty. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made.
A good face wash at the start of the day can make all the difference. Ofcourse, there is so many choices for so many skin types. It took me years to discover and settle with this St Ives Apricot Scrub. It's an amazing formula and has little beads which means you get a deep clean every time. Every persons skin is different so all you can do is to keep trying different products and see what works best for you.

This clay mask is something amazing if you've got oily skin. It helps control oil and breakouts and has been amazing for my skin. I would definitely recommend using it atleast once a week or when you feel that your skin needs a "pick-me-up".
Like the face wash - I had to experiment for a wee while to settle with this Nivea Mattifying Cream. I do and will continue to talk about this product on this blog. The formula used in this product works best for my skin. Because I have oily skin, I used to neglect a moisturizer but over time I've realized my skin is worse without it.

Finally, one of last steps I took was to purchase a high end makeup remover from Clinique. I always make the effort to remove any makeup I have on at the end of the day. Believe me, I have gone to bed with makeup on and didn't end so well.

Although my skin isn't as flawless I'd like it to be, these products have been a great help in controlling my impurities. Not everyone is blessed with amazing and clear skin. This is what works for me and remember; it took me years to find these products. Keep trying products if it doesn't work for you. You'll get there in the end!
