When I was in the tenth grade, I got acne. It wasn’t just any type of acne. It was bad! It was limited to my forehead which was a good thing because I could cover it with bangs and maybe a side-swoop. Although I could hide it, I couldn’t hide from it. I missed my blemish-free skin and even when the bumps would go away for a while, I was still left with dark marks.
In an attempt to rid my face of the enemy, I tried Proactiv. It worked at first and I found myself getting less and less zits but eventually it came back…with a vengeance. I then tried Clean & Clear Morning Burst. I had been using it since I graduated from high school and it wasn’t my favorite but it kept some bumps away. The major downside was how dry it made my face feel and oddly enough my face would still be oily in the mornings.
It wasn’t until my niece was born in 2012 that I decided to start using Cetaphil. My niece has sensitive skin and an acute form of excema so she was prescribed Cetaphil. I noticed that it wasn’t strictly for babies so I decided to try it out on my own skin. Thank God I did.
I’ve continued to use Cetaphil since that day. My skin is close to flawless! I only get a zit or two if I am pms-ing or if I avoid water for more than about five days which brings me to my next point.
WATER IS ESSENTIAL TO HEALTHY SKIN.
Although I would prefer to drink something sweet and tasty, I force myself to drink water often. I know that without water, my skin will go back to how it was and that’s just something that cannot happen. My face is never oily, I get less blackheads and the light face moisturizer is just enough to moisturize my face but not go overboard and add too much oil.
I am happy to have found the perfect recipe to having clear and healthy skin. Try it out for your self. It will not disappoint!
