Using organic products to combat oil and acne from hormones.
Today is the perfect storm for an oily face, and some breakouts that are just brewing under the skin. I can feel the change in temperature is making me sweat throughout the night despite my desperate attempts to stay hydrated and cool. I also know my estrogen and progestin levels are doing a little bit of a seesaw and that usually means acne! On beautiful sunny days like this I take in as much sunlight as I can, perhaps indulge in some foods I normally would stay away from, and then at the end of the day I treat myself to some very natural cleansing products. These are the ones I know are going to get down under the skin, pull out whatever it needs, and then hydrate me with good stuff.
The first thing I apply is the purifying mask from Tata Harper. If you have not heard of this line of products before and you are a woman of 30 years or older, this was made for you. Tata Harper was designed for people with acne, who are no longer in their teens, and are experiencing acne due to changes in composition of our naturally aging skin (including hormones, ladies!!). The product line can be quite costly, but the formulation feels so good and has immediate effects if used on a regular basis. The purifying mask is a pink clay mask – because pink clay is the bomb diggity on below-the-surface gunk – and is only made with pure natural ingredients.
This is me right now…(it has gotten hard which is why I cant smile, .. so let me go wash it off… I’ll be right back).
OK so while I was gone I did 3 extra things to finish off the routine. After I removed the mask – and oh did it feel so good – I applied the Saje Zen Cleanse facial cleanser which just has a laundry list of extracts. I even use it before I wet my face and just rub it in until it disappears and then wash my face with a facemask to remove any left over dirt. Your face will look so refreshed after this. And then, although its a night oil, I apply the Saje balancing elixir to balance my skin’s oils . Tonight is going to be one of those scorchers and my skin will already be oily, so I want to feed this to my skin while Im still up and at’em. When I apply the oil I avoid my T-zone as that already gets enough oil, but I take two drops and lightly massage this into my cheeks, chin, and neck. All organic, and very powerful (note: I do not drip it onto my face like she is in the link LOL).
Tomorrow I expect to have a few breakouts from whatever is sitting under my skin at the moment but I find it is way less than if I didnt clean my skin thoroughly.
Now, Im going to eat dinner and relax for the rest of the night.
