Thanks to a recent flare up of my very sensitive skin, I’ve been reminded of all the other times my skin has been angry and it was completely my fault. Sometimes you just have to learn the hard way and in terms of skincare, I have. Hopefully sharing my fails will spare you the pain. Literally.
It’s not often that I make an impulse purchase, but I made a sneaky detour into my grocery store’s natural beauty section, which is surprisingly great, and I saw the Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Treatment. You know I love their seriously glowing serum and brightening scrub, so I decided to give it a try. The claims? Reduce blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, which are all too familiar to me. I’ve used it for one month now and honestly, I’m conflicted.
A few weeks ago, I gave my skincare routine a little makeover. My previous routine was preventing my skin from getting worse, but I knew it could be better. I finally changed how I cleanse my skin and it changed everything! All this time, I’ve been focusing on finding the right serums and moisturizers when how I washed my face was the culprit.
I’ve been aware of oil cleansing for a couple years and used it to take off my makeup, but I never realized what a difference oil could make by using it as my primary cleanser. The best part? It’s suitable for all skin types! If you have dry, oily, mature, acne prone, textured, irritated or sensitive skin, you have to try oil cleansing. My skin is the best it’s been in years.
