Knowing I have dry skin, some people get surprised when I tell them I get hormonal acne during certain times of the month. While I will never understand the struggle of getting acne with oily skin, I am sure those of you in the same boat as me are aware how hard it can be to get rid of acne without getting parched skin.
I tend to stay away from really strong products from the drugstore (especially since they burn my eyes!) and like to search for more natural alternatives. After testing out these products, I can say they did a great job of reducing my acne flare up without the need for a ton of moisturizer afterwards.
Bamboo Charcoal Foaming Facial Wash W/Aloe
I was surprised that this wash actually got most of my makeup off in only two pumps! The first time I tried it I accidentally used way too much and probably wasted some product. I think my favorite aspects of this foaming wash was that it didn’t sting my eyes and it was super easy to rinse off. Seriously, some products take A LOT of work to get off my face.
Bamboo Charcoal Body Scrub W/Tea Tree oil
I had never before heard of a body scrub that actually helps with acne so I was curious to see how this would work out. At first I just tested it on my hands to make sure it wasn’t too drying, and wow did my hands feel clean afterwards! This is definitely going to be a life saver for anyone who struggles with back acne.
Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Micellar Water W/Aloe
This product was nice and refreshing and reminded me of the Thayers Witch Hazel products I adore. I wish this came with a spray so I could apply it more easily. For the time being I will use a cotton pad. : )
Daily Glow Priming Moisturizer
If primers or any ‘extra’ products that come before makeup tend to egg on your acne, I highly recommend this. I’ve never had my face keep that clean feeling from cleansing once a primer had been applied-until now. I really love that there is coconut oil in this as that has definitely been a staple in my routine and helps to fight acne!
I’ll definitely keep using this over the next few months around that special time. I love having such a squeaky clean feeling without the dryness! If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an e-mail or comments. 🙂
