My Make Up Fast (pray for me y’all) + My Skin Reggie (for now…)

Before I left home, I decided that while in Champaign, I’d go on a make up fast.  That’s right, NO MAKE UP!  Except lip gloss.

Why you ask?  Basically because…I need to give my skin a break.  I have terrible, terrible acne prone and post-acne scarred skin.  And as many of my friends know, it really is one of my biggest/few insecurities.  I have tried pretty much everything there has only been one line that has worked but it was pretty expensive so I’ve been trying to downsize.  Although the make up that I wear doesn’t make me break out and I only wear make up on Sabbaths or on super special occasions, I just thought my face needed a rest.  So while I’m here for a month and a half I will just be trying to focus on keeping my skin well cleansed and moisturized.  Maybe when I go back home I’ll finally just give in, suck it up, budget my money… and go back to what I know worked for me…I dunno.  Just thinking out loud.  It just really bugs me that my skin is so sucky, in my opinion…smh.  Anyways….lol

What will I be using?  Gonna be keeping it pretty simple.  Cleanse, tone, moisturize twice a day and do a facial mask once or twice a week as time allows. 

CLEANSE:  Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin

TONE:  Dickinson’s Witch Hazel (I’ve been using this for a while, it’s a great natural astringent)


Daytime:  Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF15

Nighttime:  Pond’s Dry Skin Cream (although the world knows my skin is quite oily, it does get pretty dry in the winter time.  So I figured getting a night cream that was very moisturizing would help to combat that dryness and help keep a good moisture balance in my skin overall.)

ACNE SPOT TREATMENT:  Clean and Clear Persa-Gel 10 (with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide…yup packin that punch)

DEEP PORE CLEANSING/MASQUE:  Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

We’ll see how this make-up fast and this skin reggie works.  They say less is more right???  Well I just wanna pay less and get more results, ya know?  Yeah I know, doesn’t usually work like that but we’ll see….

That’s all folks!

Love and God Bless,
