The Pampered Posts (Blog)

Here’s a question from one of my readers:
“I wash my face everyday, but I still have tons of blackheads. I don’t have acne but I do get pimples sometimes. I’ve tried to use products for oily skin, but then I get dry flaky patches. I don’t have time mess with a 5 step process every single morning, so I’m looking for something quick and easy. I feel like I can’t win! Do you have any suggestions for me?”
I do have a few suggestions for you, and don’t worry it’s not hopeless. Are your breakouts commonly on your forehead, chin, and around your nose? Are your dry patches on your cheeks? This is because you have combination skin. You are oily in your T-Zone (forehead nose, and chin) and normal on the rest of your face. This is VERY common, but unfortunately most people don’t know how to treat it, and most products cannot cater to it.
You are using products designed to absorb oil, and kill bacteria, because clogged pores automatically come along with oily skin, and blemishes and blackheads automatically come along with clogged pores. While these products may be helping your oily areas, they are damaging your normal-skin-type areas in the process.
One suggestion would be to get;
- 2 types of cleansers: 1 for oily skin and one for Normal skin
- a facial scrub – to exfoliate and rid you of some of those blackheads
- 2 types of products for masking once or twice a week: one clay or oatmeal based for your T-zone (to absorb oil) and one moisturizing for your cheeks.
- 2 types of moisturizers: 1light moisturizer for daytime and a heavier cream for night to apply on your dryer areas until you can get your dry patches under control
However, because you said you want something quick and easy, I’m assuming that suggestion isn’t going to cut it. Not to mention, you’ll end up spending a fortune on products!
Most acne, blemish, or oil-control products are filled with harsh chemicals, which kill bacteria, but can also irritate and harm skin in the process. You need a natural chemical free skin care option. You need a product that will kill bacteria and absorb oil, but is gentle enough for your more delicate areas, and wouldn’t it be nice if it moisturized too?
Well, I’ve got something for you… Try my new Indulgence exfoliating facial cleanser. It is the one-step facial in a jar. It cleanses (killing bacteria) with lemon and honey, absorbs oil with cinnamon, exfoliates with cornmeal (which is stone ground and does not have sharp edges that will scratch delicate facial skin), and moisturizes with honey. You’ll notice that Honey is listed as a cleanser and a moisturizer, because it is nature’s only antiseptic moisturizer. Honey will kill bacteria without striping skin of it’s natural moisture. This is the perfect skin care regimen for the girl on the go, like you. Use this in the morning, add a light moisturizer, if you want, and you’re done. No more fussing with 3+ products in the morning. I hope this helps!
