Love Your Skin with Pimples and All!

Do you love your skin everyday? Probably not, especially when you have a huge pimple on your chin, like I do now. However, we should try to love our face everyday. Life is too short.

Who really notices that big zit or several zits? You are the only one who notices it the most. Men really don’t care, and if they do, you are with the wrong one. They see the beautiful you behind those pimples that everybody gets. Do not worry about the red bumps and let the happy confident you shine through.

Love your skin this Valentine’s day week and everyday after too.

Rosacea Series: What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is disorder that causes redness and swelling occurring mostly on the facial skin.

14 million Americans have rosacea and many do not even know it! So you are not alone!

Rosacea can be very severe or very mild. In mild cases doctors, let alone you, will not even recognize it as rosacea and may write it off as sun damage or acne.
Rosacea usually occurs after the age 30 years old. People with fair skin that blush and get flushed easily are often affect by rosacea. Rosacea has been called adult acne, but it is NOT acne! Acne is one condition and rosacea is another.

Unfortunately, doctors do not know the cause of rosacea yet. Overtime rosacea may get ruddier. If left untreated red bumps, swollen skin, and rhinophyma, which enlarges the nose may occur. As soon as you sense rosacea see a doctor to receive treatments in order to keep the rosacea from getting worst. You can however treat rosacea to keep it from flaring up!

Some symptoms are:
- redness on the cheeks, forehead, and nose. May also occur on the neck, chest, scalp, or ears.
- eyes may get irritated and watery.
- small blood vessels on the face.

- facial burning, itching, and stinging

I will post about some triggers of rosacea in my next post!

Get Rid of Pimples and Cysts with Sulfur and Alpha Hydroxy Acid

Do you get those painful red cysts or pimples on your chin?

The pimples/red bumps that take months to go away! The tender zits hurt so bad!

I definitely feel your pain! My chin was covered in cysts for years. When a cysts would finally go ways after months, another one would take its' place.

These types of pimples/cysts are hormonal acne. It's also called adult acne. Cysts on the chin and jawline occur in many people in their 20s.

Getting rid of these pimples is quite a task, but it can be done. It's all in finding what works for you. For me, a combination of Alpha Hydroxy Acid gel and Sulfur really worked, along with the Avene's Retinaldehyde did the trick. As I have mentioned AHA before, it really helped to stop the pimples in their tracks. Pretty amazing since AHA is a surface exfoliant and Beta Hydroxy Acid is more for cleaning out the pores. But AHA worked better for me than BHA, it might work for you too! AHA also helped to erase red marks left over from the hormonal cysts too!

Anyway, back to sulfur. Sulfur is another medication that kills bacteria. And it has worked really good for me, way better than BHA again. BHA just never worked for me and yet over the years I persistently kept trying every brand of BHA out there. Some people's skin just likes different skin care products.

Adult Acnomel is a sulfur spot treatment. I have used it and it works really well to reduce those pimples overnight.

Queen Helene Mint Julep is a sulfur mask that can be used once per week. It can actually be used as a spot treatment too. It works good as a mask for oily skin mostly, because it has Kaolin clay as an ingredient. So it's a great product with multi-uses and plus it comes in a huge tube for an unbelievable price of around $4!

DDF also makes a sulfur mask that gets great reviews for $34

I would go for the Queen Helene mask! Don't be discourage because of the cheap factor. It's about ingredients! And you can use the Queen Helene Mint Julep as a mask and as a spot treatment. Great buy for your money and for your beauty!
