Beauty Tips: How to reduce acne?

For those of us that battle acne, we have tried many different remedies.  So, what is one more?  Has anyone ever tried Epson salt?  Well, I have, and you would be surprised to know that Epson salt has antibacterial qualities; that is why it can be helpful when fighting breakouts.  Acne is caused by many different things (hormones, diet, genetics, and stress), but also bacteria.  Epson salt can combat acne caused by bacteria.  So, how do you incorporate Epson salt in your beauty regimen?

1. Take a pea sized amount of your favorite facial cleanser.

2. Then add about 1/2 a teaspoon of Epson salt to the facial cleanser.

3.  Apply to your face.

This regimen should be used at night, when you would be washing the most dirt and bacteria off of your face.

Now who is ready to try this new treatment?  Make sure you let me know if you can see a difference.

Note:  give the regimen a least a month.

What’s your beauty regimen?

 After I posted this picture, it sparked many questions about my current beauty regimen.

My Beauty Regimen: 5-minute face

  1. Wash
    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser
  2.  Hydrate Under Eyes
    Bobbi Brown Cometics Hydrating Eye Cream
  3.  Moisturize and Highlight
    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and Nars Illuminator (Laguna)
    (mix both products to create your own tinted moisturizer)
    Note:  I use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 in the summer, the cream is too heavy.
  4.  Highlighting continued
    Benefit Cosmetics (Sun Beam)
    (Use three dots under each eye and blend)
  5.  Fill-in Eyebrows
    MAC Cosmetics Eyebrow Crayon (Spiked)
  6. Set Eyebrows
    MAC Cosmetics Brow Set (Show-off)
  7.  Mascara
    Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Everything Mascara
  8.  FINAL STEP:  Highlight one more time
    MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Give Me Sun)
    Note: Brush lightly over cheekbones and T-zone

Final Note:  Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 (minus the highlighting) as part of the nightly regimen.  Once a month, I use REN Clean Bio Active Skincare (Glycolactic Skin Renewal Mask), before I wash and moisturize at night.  The instructions for the mask suggest to use weekly and after you wash your face, but I use a regimen that works best for my skin.

Can you say ADDICTED?

I just realized that I might be addicted to lipstick! This is how many lipsticks I’m currently carrying in my purse and doesn’t represent half of what I own.

Do I need HELP?
