On my way to a beach vacay!

The giant chin pimple update: it's pretty much gone. I think I can confidently say that aloe Vera is a foolproof acne cure and I highly reccomend anyone try it! I keep aloe plants around the house and cut off little pieces to stick to my face. I leave these little green bits on my blemishes until the aloe seems to have soaked into my skin and the leaf is dryer. πŸƒThe plant works better than anything bottled in my opinion. I've been exfoliating very gently with baking soda and water to cleanse my skin as well. Aloe Vera is antibacterial, anti fungal and anti inflammatory. Amazing!

I'm headed up north for a few days of boating, swimming and tubing. I'm excited to soak up some sun and channel my inner little mermaid! πŸ‘™πŸš

Talk to you soon!

Baking Soda for Acne

Hi guys! I recently rediscovered one of my favorite all-natural, home remedies for acne. Baking soda! I used to mix baking soda with coconut oil and had great results using the concoction as a do it yourself cleanser. Last night I exfoliated my face with baking soda and also added a little to my hot bath. I woke up with smooth, refreshed skin and the giant pimple on my chin is a little smaller. 😐

I am headed for a lake vacation up north next week and will be using baking soda and aloe (another favorite all natural ingredient) to clear my skin before the trip. I know these remedies will not fail me which is why I wanted to share with you!

Neutrogena Skin Clearing Makeup!

I wanted to do a quick post on a foundation I recently used and thought was worth sharing. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Makeup and skin Clearing Mineral Powder is a dynamic duo! The foundation is a smooth and easy-to-blend consistency. The powder gives nice coverage and claims to clear breakouts. I like this foudnation because it covers very well and stays put while looking natural- as long as I don't apply too much!

My Acne Story

A little over a year ago I had reached the end of my rope and couldn't hold on much longer. My confidence had dwindled to an all time low and I knew something had to change. I felt as if I couldn't be myself because I didn't feel like people saw the real me, I felt like I was wearing a mask of red bumps. I was contemplating the potentially dangerous prescription, Accutane, and decided to do just a little more research. I quickly discovered websites like my own, with success stories swearing by natural remedies. I discovered what is really  in those expensive cleansers and read about ancient medicinal recipes and modern day oils. Pretty soon I was in my kitchen whipping up DIY cleansers and testing countless all-natural masks. I began to feel connected to the environment and liberated from the firm clutch of the cosmetic industry.

Physical activity is crucial to human health. Working out can not only impact your metabolism, weight and mood; but can actually clear your blemishes and prevent new ones from forming!

The mopre water you drink, the better you will look and feel. Drinking more water will cause your body to let go of excess fluid retention and water weight and replenish your cells.

Working out can be a hassle, but once you find the right activity for you it can become a passion! Here's How:

  • Try Youtube! There are countless fitness gurus who post great workout videos that are short and you can do anywhere! http://www.blogilates.com/workout-video-index/ is one of the most incredible sources for quick workouts that you don't even realize you are doing!
