My short acne story and the products i used

Way back in my teenage years when I hit my first menstruation, pimples started showing up. I've had a mild cystic acne since then and it affects me so much because pimples lead to acne scars. Listening to my Mom about not pinching would have been a good idea. Now its very irritating and discouraging. I tried a lot of products to fade my acne but worsened and made my face burn because of the product I used when I was in college. I covered my face with my hair and can't even stare at my classmates. That's the most embarrassing moment I've ever experience.

I get serious breakouts whenever I don't wash my face every night or not trying to treat them with pimple cream. It's tiring and yet I need to clean my face after I go to sleep to prevent from acne scarring. I'm still looking and searching for products that will wonders to my acne prone face.


As of the moment these are the products that I'm currently using in my daily and night routine.

I was searching on the web for acne remedy because of my hormonal imbalance. A lot of of small pimples showing in my forehead and in my cheeks. I was desperate to look for a product that will help minimize my pimples. Thank god I found this face scrub.

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is a delicious scrub that smells of fuzzy apricots and helps reduce breakouts before they even occur. Made with 100 % natural exfoliants (like crushed walnut shell) for a gentle, deep cleanse. It claims to prevent blackheads and minimize pores and it has oil-free salicylic acid acne medication. Sounds good, right? :) A lot of good reviews on this product and i can tell it really works! The uses of the apricot scrub is that it helps prevents new blackheads and acne blemishes from forming and this is also used for treatment of acne.

I love this brand as my facial scrub compared to cheap ones. even though this is a little bit pricey but its worth the price. It removes dry patches and made my face more clearer than ever.  It's my perfect scrub for my gentle exfoliating needs. The beads are not harsh and I find that it does not irritate my skin unlike other scrubs. I use this morning and night to get rid of all the impurities and it helps lessens my break outs
