I’ve been plagued by pimples, which always come when you least need something else to worry about and have found several steps to add to my regimen that not only clears up zits and blackheads, it also helps keep my skin soft and hydrated.
One of my biggest problems comes from stress, which creates an ironic cycle. I get stressed out, then breakout, which causes more stress and more zits. YIKES!!! Will it never end??? Worst of all, when winter winds start to blow, my skin changes from the oil combination skin to dry skin, which requires even different treatment.
Along with my zit zapping journey, I’ve found some excellent treatments that I make at home. Unlike some I’ve purchased in a store, this mask doesn’t irritate my skin and contains only natural products. They also don’t hurt my pocketbook, and the ingredients come right off the grocery shelf. One of these products is this dynamite acne mask. I love it and find it not only helps prevent breakouts while healing any existing problem, but it also leaves my skin soft and supple.
