I’m in my late 20’s (Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m admitting to that) but still breakout as if I’m in my teens. I’ve come to terms with this dilemma several years ago but it doesn’t mean I just sit there and let myself go. My breakouts are hormonal these days and I feel that’s better than breaking out at random times for random reasons. So what do I do when I get those monthly breakouts? I’ve learned over time that the simpler my skincare ritual, the better. The following is my skincare ritual day in/day out until my skin is back to normal.
Step 1 | Wash face with raw manuka honey
Step 2 | Moisturize with organic coconut oil
Step 3 | Apply Cell Perfecto PM
Manuka honey has wonderful healing properties. It’s anti-bacterial and a natural humectant. Coconut oil has antioxidant properties, deeply moisturizes, and assists in healing. Both items can be purchased at any health food store. I purchased my honey from here but I’m sure other online outlets like Amazon sell some at more reasonable prices. The coconut oil comes straight from the motherland, the Philippines, from a cousin who pressed it herself (pretty cool, huh?!).
Step 3 is optional for me. I mainly use it to help my pimples heal without leaving scars. You can use Cell Perfecto PM all over your face or as a spot treatment. Many have had success just using it as a spot treatment but I massage it all over my face. Read thorough review about it here.
