Here’s My Skin Care Regime. What’s Yours?
A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a picture of me that had been posted on someone’s Tumblr. 1) It was kinda weird to see so many people “liking” and “reblogging” ME. It creates this mix of emotions. On the one hand, it’s a really cool feeling, but then on the other hand you feel really exposed and vulnerable. But anyways…
2) What struck me as even more odd was the fact that several people were commenting on how “flawless” my skin was. I’m thinking to myself, “Chile please. My skin is far from flawless.” Granted that picture was not retouched in any way, the truth of the matter is that my skin has the personality of an 8th grade girl. One minute everything is all peaches -n- cream and next thing you know…total meltdown.
I don’t have what I would consider “bad” skin, just very fickle. For that reason, it’s been really hard to find a skin care regime that works for me. It works today and tomorrow my skin hates it. And trust me, I’ve tried just about everything to create some consistency with my skin.
Growing up I tried Retin-A, antibiotics, creams, peels…you name it. None of it gave me the results I wanted. I started this summer using Black Soap. Things started out great and just like a pubescent little girl, my skin soon FREAKED!
But true to form, my skin decides that it only likes Proactiv sometimes. If I use it everyday things get a little crazy. So I use the facial cleanser daily, but I only use the whole system about once or twice a week. On the days when I don’t wear makeup I don’t use it at all.
Do you guys have any skin care products that you swear by?
