Acne Product of the day!
Rhonda Allison, Blemish Serum for Acne Support.
This blemish serum is PERFECT for pimples that are just coming out and also active ones. Apply this once a night on a pimple, and it will heal within 2-3 days! It’s highly active, so it’s easy to over do it, you can actually peel, be very cautious.
What I really love about this serum is that there are literally no fillers or any synthetic ingredients in it, every thing that is listed has a purpose to benefit the skin. When looking for products for acne, look for Salicylic acid, witch hazel, and tea tree oil (some of the key ingredients in this) these all have either brightening or anti-bacterial properties. Pimples=bacterial infection.
I don’t think they sell these on their website, but I’m sure a spa/salon somewhere near you carries this. This one is from the Life Spa at Lifetime Fitness. Thanks! Xoxo
I will always love my Image SkinCare products…but I will be adding this to my daily skin routine! Contains Salicylic acid which is perrrrrrfect for skin that is prone to breakouts and/or oily. When dealing with oily/acne prone skin, look for face washes containing Salicylic acid, helps break down the top layer of skin cells to reveal fresher and brighter skin, and gets into the pores helping dissolve the skin’s natural oil in them! Xoxo!
I’ve been wanting to write a blog about my current and favorite face wash for a while but I wanted to wait until I’ve used it enough to deservingly rave about it!
I began using Image Skincare’s Salicylic Gel Cleanser about a month ago, in order to treat and control my skin concerns. My skin type is combo, meaning my t-zone area (forehead and nose) is oily while the rest of my face is normal/dry. And my skin is also very prone to breakouts.
I’ve always trusted Image SkinCare products, since they are one of the few lines that show better and faster results than most products, as they are much more concentrated in active ingredients.
I use this wash twice a day, in the mornings and at night (sometimes I use a different mild cleanser in the mornings since the gel cleanser is a bit strong, I don’t want to dry out my skin). I apply about a penny sized amount of the cleanser to my already rinsed face and just massage all over, focusing on problem areas, for about a minute. You can also add a bit more water to really foam it up. One of the reasons I really like this cleanser is because of the cooling effect it has on my skin, because of the added tea tree oil in it. Very refreshing in the mornings!
Overall, I’ve noticed a huge difference on my skin. The areas where I had a lot of congestion and bumps have greatly decreased or are completely gone. I do still get the usual break out here and there, but I really feel like this cleanser takes care of it before the pimple gets out of hand.
Since this cleanser is strong, I would only recommend it to people who are really prone to pimples and have oily skin. And never forget to moisturize!
But in the end, always talk to your esthetician (facialist) or dermatologist, so they can recommend the right products for you after a thorough skin analysis!
One thing that I will always tell people is, if something works for your friend or sister, it does not guarantee that it will give you the same results! Everyone, related or not, has complete different skin types and conditions, which is why I recommend that you do your research or go seek a Skin Therapist/Esthetician to determine yours so you can purchase the correct skin products made for your personal skin type :)
This is one of my favorite blogs that I follow and I just recently came across this article they posted on what to look for when determining your skin type.
There are the usual 4-5 (depending on your preference) skin types for people ranging from; Dry, Oily, Normal, Combo and Sensitive. But this article goes into great detail and is very specific about YOUR skin type.
Take a look to see if any of the conditions apply to you. :)
Skin products and facials aren’t the only steps you should be taking in order for healthy skin, what you eat counts, too! Include some more fruit and vegetables in your daily meals, here are 8 of the many foods that benefit both your body and skin!
