Acne, eczema, oily or super dry Skin ... Have you ever dealed with any of these issues? Many people suffer from problematic skin these days. Usually the problem os somewhere inside the body and the skin condition is just like a mirror. But of course, you can also affect your skin health from the outside. For few year until now, my skin's been awful. I was suffering from acne, my skin was very dry, flaky and dull. Now I can finally see a positive change. It's not due to some super expensive cosmetics product of any specifit brand. Nope. My skin actually became better after I said goodbye to all of the cleansing gels, creams, toners ... and I threw them away.
Forget about all the advertisements which forces you to buy special cosmetics for problematic skin. Most of the products of conventional cosmetics is full of chemicals which only harm the skin evern more. The result is overdry, unhealthy skin that is not able to regenerate naturally on its own.
So that's why I'd like to show you my (absolutely top) natural products which changed my skin care routine at all.
I recommend reading the whole post with all the notes :)
- contains vitamin E, which has antiinflammatory properties
- fades away acne scars (even the old ones)
- moisturizes and nourishes dehydrated skin
- helps to get rid of acne and eczema
- smooths wrinkles and it's anti-aging
- softens the skin
- contains a lot of vitamin C, which is needed for the formation of collagen which is used for skin cells regeneration
- makeup remover - aply on your skin, wipe off with a cotton swab (and eventually finish cleansing with rose water)
- deep cleansing
- facial massage
- instead of moisturizer
I've tried many oils on my Face - neem, avocado, olive, coconut ... but rosehip oil is my absolutely most favourite one. I usually apply a thick layer of the oil after I remove my makeup and just let it there until it's absorbed. It's kind of orange on the face so I don't recommend using it before you go out. But during the days when I'm at home, I usually use rosehip oil even several times a day.
After few days of using this oil - about 2-3 day, I was able to see the difference. My skin wasn't so dry, but also it wasn't oily because the oil helps to balance the natural oil production. The tiny bumbps on my face disappeared and it also stopped new acne from comming. Also my old little scars started fading out. My skin is now much softer, healthier and less dull then before.

I usually use rose water to finish my facial cleanisng. I usually clean my face once a day - in the evening, when I'm removing mz makeup. In the morning, I just spray a bit of rose water onto my face to "wake it up". All over the internet, you can see girls who put tons of different cosmetics on their face several times a day - first they clean their face with water, then they use some cleansing gel, toner, moisturizer, acne serum, sunscreen, primer and then several layers of makeup ... That's nonsense. That's not "normal", trust me. The more things you put on your face and also the more often you cleanse your face, the more your skin will be irritated and dry. Also by cleansing your face too often, you're getting rid of the good bacteria which doesn't hurt you, but actually keeps your skin healthy.
Have you ever tried these two products? Do you have some personal skin-care miracle? :)
