The Skincare Commandments

The Skincare Commandments

When I was younger I had really bad acne and scarring. It was so embarrassing! I was the only one in my family that had it and couldn’t figure out how to cure it until I really paid attention to what I was doing to my body and skin. Once I figured out I created my skin care commandments. Following them has never steered me wrong.

Don’t drink carbonated drinks like soda it can cause breakouts. In my case, it always makes me break out in tons of pimples

Drink 90% water it flushes your system out and hydrates your skin well.

Plenty of fruits and vegetables it helps your skin glow.

Feed your skin with good hydrating masks. It keeps your skin strong and hydrated so it rebounds the free radicals in the air.

Relax your face. If you feel a wrinkle in your brow. Take a deep breath and it’ll calm you down.

Drink less and meditate more. Alcohol can dull the skin (not to mention its bad for the waistline) and can age you a bit. If you need to relax after a long day try to meditate more as an end to the day. It’s good for the mind and body.

Wash your face! At least wash your make up off, but you need to wash off your entire day. All the sweat, pollution, and grease of the day needs to come off. Your body heals its self at night make sure what it absorbs is healthy and good skin food!

How I Got Rid Of My Stretch Marks

How I Got Rid Of My Stretch Marks

Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor and my method of removal is not recommended, even by me. Use at your own risk.

I first got my tiger stripes when I was 24 and my booty started to grow. They weren’t the cute little white lines everyone thinks are adorable. They were literal tiger stripes like big dark brown lines going all across my thighs like a pair of shorts. Eventually, they started going down my inner thighs reaching my knees. I was beyond devastated and embarrassed. For 5 months I used a series of products from Strivectin (didn’t work), to Castor oil (kinda worked)  but nothing really got rid of them.
One day I kept seeing girls use derma roller on their face and wondered what the heck it was. Basically, it’s a roller covered with tiny needles that poke holes in your skin. It helps your body produce collagen and helps any product that you’re using penetrate your skin deeper.
It helps with stretch marks because your skin (once punctured) will generate new skin without the scaring. Multiple girls on YouTube swore by the product and with it only being around 10 dollars or so I figured why not?
Once I got it I used it at least once a day tuning it back and forth on an area 10 times then applied my cream.
After about 2 weeks I began seeing results! I couldn’t have been any happier! But still, my results weren’t happening fast enough. I wanted to be patient but couldn’t. I figured since stretch marks are essentially scars from your skin stretching rapidly why not get something for scaring?
Enter in Mederma Dry Oil for scars and stretch marks aka my saving grace. I swear by the oil. The oil absorbs into the skin so it penetrates the skin deeper than any cream and if I use it with my roller I couldn’t beat. And I was right! My dark brown turned to light brown almost overnight! I was back in skirts guys! I never felt sexier.
