Week 11 UMC: Instant Detox!
Its week 11 and we're still going strong. Its time to give the skin at much needed detox. This week's theme is Instant Detox! Clear out the gunk in the skin and let the good skin shine through.
I pretty much have it under control when I get break outs. I know how my skin reacts and how to care for them while they are present on my face. But I recently have been experiencing some weird irritations on my skin. If you saw my I Tried Fresh Aloe For 7 Days video on Youtube, then you would have seen that I have started to get some really strong acne on my face. I think its cystic grade acne that I am experiencing in my 20s (just when I thought I'd grow out of teenage acne, not I got adult acne and she's here with a vengeance). Not only that, but I've started to get tiny bumps on my forehead. Not quite pimples, not white heads but tiny bumps under the skin.
I went to my local Sephora and the Skin Expert recommended this Claudalie Instant Detox Mask. This is supposed to be the rehab for troubled skin, congestion (clogged pores), oiliness, and uneven skin which is definitely my skin concern. This mask has a Pink Clay base which is known to be a gentle but powerful mask for extracting impurities from the skin. I love that it doesn't leave my face too dry or tight as some detox masks do. But my skin feels smooth after using it. The jury is still out on whether it clears those tiny bumps but I'll keep you posted.
