How to Get the Skin You've Always Wanted

I’ve had quite the skin adventure, to say the least. I’ve tried so many face washes from different brands, I’ve tried going to dermatologists, and I’ve tried different makeup in hopes that I could find a solution to my skin issues. Before this starts to sound like a Proactiv commercial, I’d like to take you through my journey to glowing skin by using more natural skin care and my favorite products.

I have four different star products that have done wonders for me. The first is by Nip + Fab. Their Dragons Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot is the icing on top of the cake for all my other skincare products ($25). This serum has evened out my complexion while helping me glow like a true beauty. This product is great for all skin types and won’t make you oily, so it’s definitely a must have for everyone.

The next product in my arsenal for great skin is by Mario Badescu, specifically the facial spray with aloe, herbs, and rosewater ($14). While this product is not new to anyone in the makeup world, it is still a fan favorite. This spray gives my skin new life throughout the day. With a few spritz of this, I’m left feeling hydrated and rejuvenated. You can use this spray on your face to set makeup or even on your hair if it’s feeling little dry.

My third product is my secret weapon, Tea Tree Oil ($10). This oil did wonders in clearing my skin. At the first sight of a breakout, I’d dab little Tea Tree Oil and bam, next morning it was gone. And, as a side note, it also smells fantastic!

The last gem on my list is African Black Soap. This is what has ultimately cleared my skin. When I first started using it my skin went through a transition stage where my skin was drier and tight; this lasted for a week or two. After that my skin went back to normal, with the exception of no longer breaking out. Going primarily natural for my skin care is what did the trick and finally gave me the skin I desired.
