How I get rid of blemishes

I thought I would share this with you because it’s something that a lot of people suffer, at least once a month. I have combination oily skin and suffered of acne when I was a teenager, so sometimes I get break-outs more than once a month

So I was having a terrible week with blemishes. I was not eating well, I was stressed with school, the air conditioner in my office was like a freezer, and I got panicked and filled my face with products that I didn’t even need at that moment. I was going crazy. No matter what I put on, my face looked like a volcano and the blemishes seemed to get even more notorious. One night I decided to suspend a few of the products from my normal skincare routine, which consisted in: eye makeup remover, face makeup remover, Clarisonic Mia, Lancôme Mousse Radiance, Tonique Douceur, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Clinique All about eyes rich eye cream, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer… quite a list!

Now, that night I only removed my makeup, washed my face with the Lancôme Mousse Radiance, applied my toner, my eye cream and the Effaclar Duo. Miracle happened. The blemishes were like 70% gone the next morning. Now I know that less is more when it comes to blemishes.

Fortunately my skin is fine now and I’ve gone back to my normal skincare routine and my skin keeps getting better. Another important fact is to always keep your makeup brushes clean (a deep wash once a week will do), and if you use your fingers, wash your hands or use a sanitizer before touching your face. Also remember that health comes in by your mouth, so you have to drink a lot of water and avoid sugars and cooking oils. :)

So as you already know I'm a beauty junkie, but I'm also a music lover, and there's an upcoming music festival I'm really excited about: the Corona Capital 2012 in Mexico City.
