I made a skin changing discovery while reading Nat the Fat Rat not long ago.
I've never really had "bad" skin yet I've never really had "good" skin either.
That's all changed, folks!
I thought I would share my latest regimen that has been working amazingly well for me.
The secret to this whole thing is the Apple Cider Vinegar,
but you're going to have to wait for those details. Dun, dun, dun.
Say what you will, I love St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
Followed by Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask.
Used in the shower everyday.
While your skin is still moist from the shower,
you'll start the vinegar magic.
This is in place of "normal" drugstore toner.
Now, I won't lie to you...vinegar smells bad and this is no exception.
But! The initial smell fades quickly and you won't smell it again for the rest of the day.
When you buy your vinegar, make sure that you get Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Totally creepy sounding and definitely necessary.
Nat uses 50/50 vinegar and water. Others use two parts water, one part vinegar.
I go nuts. I just soak that little cotton ball in pure vinegar and wipe it on my face.
It took about three weeks to see a huge difference, but my skin has totally changed.
It's softer and doesn't have any texture in places that used to give me grief.
PS. I found my vinegar at Whole Foods.
About five minutes after the vinegar bath, I use this lotion that makes my skin
feel like high quality silk. That's not an exaggeration.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer.
AND it contains SPF, which is such a problem here in the sunny Northwest...?
My nighttime ritual then consists of taking off my makeup with whatever face towelettes
were on sale at Target,
followed by a slather of this stuff,
It looks like a clear gel and feels really awesome on my face.
And, as always...emergencies call for one of these puppies.
If you stuck around to read this whole thing, you're a trooper.
You deserve a gold star!
I hope something in this post helps! Let me know if you use anything that you hadn't previously.
