|Baking Soda face cleanser!! |
(not to be confused with other substances haha)
What you need:
2 tbsp baking soda
2 tsp water
Wash your face! You want to start off with clean and makeup free skin. Then, just mix the stuff and apply. Rub it in small circular motions all over the face. Be gentle! its exfoliating even though, it's doesn't feel like it. You can leave on for 5-10 minutes (or don't) and then just wash it away completely. Your skin will feel a little tingly afterward. Then just apply moisturizer.
I read a couple variations of this. There is another that includes honey into the mix. I also tried this one and i liked it better because it was nice and smooth and honey moisturizes the skin so it left my face super soft.
What you need:
1 tbsp honey (raw/organic)
1 tsp baking soda
Again you want to start off with a clean face and then just rub the mix together and apply. Always be gentle to your face! I think this one, that includes the honey, can be used more often because it's softer and gentler to the skin.
*Be Gentle!! Can't stress this enough, always be gentle with your face, it's sensitive and rubbing like crazy and picking at blemishes will make things worse. It will cause redness, irritation and discomfort and worse of all: scars!
So be nice to your skin, it means you no harm!
*Be Patient!! Can't stress this enough either, and i know it's hard and frustrating but your blemishes, if your lucky, will probably go away by themselves or you may have to try a billion things before you find your "it" product or routine.
So take your time, Rome wasn't built in a day!
I am EXTREMELY insecure about my face, i have terrible skin and it makes me angry and sad almost everyday. Sometimes i say "eh, who cares!" and other times i don't even want to see myself. Having facial blemishes can make any girl or boy freak out but when you have them all the time it's killer! GRRR it makes me so angry. I feel like i try everything and nothing works or it makes it worse because i have such sensitive skin. And it makes me even angrier because i use to have pretty rockin' skin. I didn't need makeup nor did i have to worry about keeping up with acne products or soaps and stuff, i just kept on with my day. And then BAM! out of nowhere i started to get really bad blemishes and now, i have to see ugly spots on my face that never seem to go away no matter what i do. Most days i feel dirty, insecure and un-pretty, so that sucks, majorly!
But one thing to always remember, even though i know first hand that it's really hard, always, alway love and treat yourself right! Don't let your flaws define you, because they don't! You may feel insecure and extremely down about something that others may not even notice or they don't care. Have you ever noticed that when you fancy someone (and it doesn't have to be in a "love you" kind of way) that you suddenly think they are pretty and everything they do is just peachy? Well, i do haha and i think it happens to most without them noticing, so your true friends and people who genuinely like you will look past your flaws and love you for what's important.
Beauty is not everything!
Be happy in your skin! ;)
