PESKY BLACKHEADS

blog6-12.2-43

I have always been pretty lucky when it comes to my skin. I have never battled acne or any other pesky, persistent skin issues. In fact, I can only recall 4 visits to a dermatologist, twice when I was younger for a mole on my right arm (you’ve probably noticed it) and the other two visits in the last 3 months due to a minor allergic reaction I had on my lips.  For the most part my skin is extremely dry, like I am the person who always carries moisturizer. If I run out or walk out of the house with out it, I immediately panic and stop at my local Walgreens and restock. When it comes to my face I have mixed skin. My t-zone is extremely oily and the rest of my face is super dry. Because my t-zone is super oily, my nose is the place that harbors most of my black heads. It’s so bad that if I don’t wash my face every night, the next day I can wake up with my nose covered in them so I absolutely have to wash my face every night along with following a pretty strict regimen. Every Sunday I like to wake up early (while Pete sleeps in) and apply a Biorè nose strip and immediatley follow up with a charcoal mask, have my coffee and relax a little bit with either a good read or catching up on some reality TV that I have missed for the week.

If you are not familiar with activated charcoal it essentially draws out the bacteria, dirt, chemicals and any other impurities on your skin and in your pores, think of it as a magnet for all the stuff you don’t want on your face. There are many different ones you can try, but I have found that the Origins Clear Improvement works really well. Every time I use it my skin feels super clean and I can instantly tell the difference in my pores.

Do you use a charcoal mask or have any other tricks to keep black heads at bay? Please share them!

MOMMYFORM

 A T-shirt and jeans has become my “mommyform” until I can figure out the balance of wanting to get everything done while Easton naps. The list of things that need to get done usually consists of eat, pee, pump, and clean and what I am going to wear for the day is usually at the…
