It’s no secret that i’ve suffered with acne for a very long time. I’ve tried a lot of acne treatments on the market and i’ve also been to the dermatologist quite a few times, i must admit that helped to a certain extent but my skin never cleared up fully.
I got really frustrated because i didn’t know what else to do! I decided to take things into my own hands and do some research. My aunt spoke about using witch hazel, she considers it a staple in her skin care, so i did some reading up on this and discovered how beneficial it is to the skin.
WITCH HAZEL BENEFITS TO THE SKIN
According to my research, it has the ability to remove excess oil from the skin and shrink down pores. It also fades bruises and blemishes and speeds up the healing process of any underlying damage.
I have incorporated witch hazel as a toner for my skin after washing my face. The one i’m currently using is the Boots tea tree mixed with witch hazel and it leaves my face feeling really refreshed and thoroughly cleansed. This brings me to another discovery which is the tea tree.
TEA TREE BENEFITS ON THE SKIN
It is known to have many anti-viral and anti-fungal benefits. It’s an excellent treatment for acne. One study found that tea tree oil is just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the negative side effects of redness and peeling.
On the days i wear makeup i would use the tea tree cleansing wipes to take it off, these wipes are really good might i add. I’ve also started using the facial spin brush and this makes such a difference in terms of the texture of my skin as it goes deep down to remove all the impurities, paired with the tea tree lemon facial wash i’d say this is a match made in heaven!.
To bring back life to the skin after washing and toning i use the Olay moisturiser and i do like the way this works, it’s very gentle and it brightens up my skin.
I’m all for natural skin treatments that you can find in your local drugstore, and of course these are inexpensive products.
Now using these products i have seen a big improvement in my skin, it’s still a work in progress but with time it will get better.
