When it comes to the drugstore, I've almost completely given up on the skin care aisle, and head straight to the organic skin care section. There you will find products that are free from parabens, pthalates, sulfates, and synthetic chemicals. I'll explain more on another post on why you should avoid said things, because that's a whole 'nother topic for a whole 'nother time! (In fact, if you saw me tweeting yesterday, I was very upset at how difficult it is to find natural ingredients in mainstream skin care items.)
I am acne-prone, and have suffered from it since I hit puberty. It's kind of weird and silly to be in my late twenties and having to deal with such an adolescent bugaboo (ten points for me for using awesome vocabulary, btw). The Clarisonic has definitely helped me keep it at bay, but ever since I got pregnant, this seems to be a never-ending fight. My hormones are working overtime, and it seems to be showing on my face more than usual.
So, in the spirit of being acne-prone and on a quest for natural skin care, I wanted to focus on two of my favorite cleansers right now. These cleansers contain a natural form of Salicylic Acid found in Willow Bark Extract. Salicylic Acid is known for it's blemish fighting properties and exfoliation benefits. I like both of these cleansers very much, and recommend them to anyone who battles with blemishes.
Two great things about these two cleansers:
1. Both of these cleansers can be found at your local drugstore in the organic skin care section!
2. Each of these cleansers will run you $10 or under!
Here are my picks!
So, there you have it! If you have any questions over anything, please feel free to ask! Hope this helps you on your journey to clear skin! If you already have flawless skin, then stop being so perfect and disregard this blog post. I'm sure you have flaws elsewhere. ;)
Also, NYC recaps start tomorrow! Holy crap, I have so many pictures- it's taking me days to sort through and edit them! Be patient with me!
