If there is something I love more than makeup,it has to be taking care of my skin .. I DONT joke with my skin at all.. My skin comes first.. A short history about my skin..
I use to have very smooth, even and clear skin.. No acne, no discolouration, no dark circles just fresh smooth skin with occasion rashes when I want to see my P*****,and once am done,the rashes are gone. I didnt use any thing for them,they go on their own.. My skin problem started like 3years ago, and at that time I was using Elizabeth Arden which I didn’t know was fake.. I used it for more than a year and I started to have rashes allover my face,thinking it was the normal rashes, I did nothing about it. After like 4month with the rashes, I decided to stop the Elizabeth Arden and went to a friends place to get cream (she works at a spa).. for a few month my skin went back to normal and I was so happy, little did I know the worst was coming.
Out of no where I started having acne . Like by morning I see like 6 huge acne on my face once, and that was how they kept coming.. With the acne, comes discolouration and high pigmentation .. Only me? I know right..
I can’t explain the effect this had on me guys, my life was terrible. I couldn’t go out or look people in the face,I just look down.. I was miserable and depressed… The funny thing was,I didn’t do anything about it for more than a year, because I always hear people say nothing works for acne, that they go on their own…. I cried although and hated my entire existence..
Anyway, while I was shopping for makeup online, I saw the store had neutrogena for acne so I decided to try and did some research on the internet concerning acne.. I got the neutrogena acne cleanser with 2% salicylic acid and acne scrub just for trying sake,I wasn’t expecting any result and I followed some of the instructions I saw on the internet.. To my surprise to some extent it was working.. The acnes weren’t coming like they use to,I was impressed and that moment I knew there were other products that are more effective.. I immediately started searching for acne solution on the internet.
To cut the long story short,( I will continue on another post) here are the acne cleanser I use and haven’t regretted using.
