For the past year my skin has been going through some serious changes. After being on the pill for so long it was like I had to relearn my skin. My skin recently has been a lot more oily and acne prone. So the simple skin care routine that I use to have has needed an upgrade. I have added a few things to my skin care routine that have change my life.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has amazing benefits for your skin specifically in treating acne. Tea tree oil helps with the severity of acne. I use it as an on the spot treatment for when I had those unexpected breakouts. I just take a Q-tip and put a few drops on it and put the tea tree oil on the acne spot. Usually it will dry the acne out overnight or within two uses; depending on how stubborn it wants to be.
I recently traded in my makeup wipes for micellar water. The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin. Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. It really does the job of taking away all of my makeup and doesn't leave my skin dry. I also noticed that it really moisturizes my face and doesn't leave it dry like the makeup wipes use to. Since I've been using it I have been breaking out less which is pretty awesome, that lets me know it’s doing it job.
Spin Facial Brush
Lastly is my amazing spin brush. This thing is a game changer. I have always had super sensitive skin so I was on the fence about trying out a facial spin brush because I thought it would just irritate my skin. But I decided to go ahead and get one because I had some acne scars on my forehead that I wanted to get rid of and I needed a better way to exfoliate my skin than just by using my hands. So once I tried it out I could see an immediate difference in my skin. It helps cleanse my pores a lot more and I have been breaking out less. I normally just use the sensitive spin brush attachment and will occasionally use the exfoliator spin brush attachment to use on my forehead and chin to get rid of my dark spots.
