Pimple Cures: 5 Home Remedies to Zap Zits post image

Adolescence was a hard time for most of us. Besides dealing with raging hormones, embarrassing body changes and emotional outbursts, there were the zitsjust one more hardship among many that teenage life had to offer.

Unfortunately, skin problems arent always left behind in adolescence. Breakouts and acne continue to haunt a lot of us, even in our 20s and 30s. Ive been battling with a constant outbreak of pimples for as long as I can remember. I tried going the traditional beauty product way, and when that didn’t work I tried prescription medications. Though these solutions would help to alleviate my condition temporarily, my skin would always eventually revert to its previous red, bumpy, irritated state.

Here are the top five home remedies that have done wonders to help me fight my pimple problems:

ANM Beauty Review: L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Collection post image

I was extremely delighted one evening when I came home to a package containing the new L’Oreal Paris Youth Code collection. Getting free beauty products to try is always exciting but this arrival was even more fortuitous because I was at a point where I was increasingly frustrated by the expensive high-end skincare products I was relying on.

I was being as diligent as ever with my routine but they just weren’t working in the same way. My skin felt dry no matter how much moisturizer I slathered on and I was noticing several other unsettling changes. I had always heard that it all goes downhill after 25 (thanks mom!) and as I move further and further past the quarter century mark, I’ve discovered that this crude cautionary scare tactic has a lot of truth to it. I was seeing fine lines under my eyes, and the faint forming of parentheses around my mouth and visible pores! Some said I was being crazy, but that is just what you’re supposed to say to make someone feel better about the inevitable.

But I digress. So immediately after opening the box I reached for the day/night cream, applied just a touch to my face and watched as my skin instantly turned to velvet. Right then and there I knew I was onto something. I never cut myself off from all products to the exclusion of one, it’s just too hard as a beauty writer with so many amazing new products coming your way all the time. However, I was really curious to see how much of  an improvement these products alone would produce. It’s all in the name of research!

Beauty Review: Best Exfoliators post image

I don’t know about you, but changing temperatures always leave me with dry, flakey uneven skin. I was recently in Morocco and they have something there that you would never ever find here: spas that offer massages and full body scrubs for $25! After my scrub, my skin looked more radiant than ever before and while I have pretty smooth skin naturally, it had never been so deliciously soft.

After about a week, my baby’s bottom skin was no longer which lead me to rediscover the importance of exfoliating. Body scrubs and exfoliators can stimulate circulation, slough off dead skin, and invigorate the skin, to keep skin healthy and revitalized no matter how bad the weather.

I have so many exfoiators that used to remain untouched, save for a special occasions where I need super smooth legs, but now that is no longer the case and I have committed myself to full body exfoliation at least 1-2 times a week. Our skin is our largest organ so it definitely deserves the most attention.
