I’ve been struggling for years to control my skin that just doesn’t want to believe that I am no longer teenager. Unfortunately, it is something of a split personality as it thinks it is middle aged as well. Break outs and fine lines. . and I am fooling myself when I pretend not to see more than fine lines around my eyes. Sigh.
I was fortunate not to ever suffer from Cystic Acne and I won’t even pretend I have it that bad. I have breakouts that are annoying normally – more so than horrible or disfiguring.
But annoying enough that I want it to go away. Over the years, I have tried many things – topical and oral, prescription and otherwise and been able to keep things in check. But when I don’t get enough sleep, don’t drink enough water, don’t wash my face and have too much stress in my life – watch out.
It doesn’t help that I am make-up retarded so, unlike those crazy talented make-up people on YouTube that seem to cover over any problem, I go plain faced. Though I do believe that it helps my skin to stay clean and moisturized at any given time.
Like many – I am a sucker for skin care products and will try find beauty in a bottle. And since I am now really trying to eliminate the chemicals that aren’t doing me or the earth any favours, I tend to stick to natural brands. A bit ago, I stumbled upon Eminence and thought I would give their probiotic line a try.
Man – this stuff smells like tea tree oil – strong and spicy but I like it. I washed my face and I love it. Clean, soft, greaseless, supple and well mostly clean.
