How I: cleared up my acne!

Ok! So, I've never really had a big issue with acne. I've had a couple breakouts here and there, but nothing too dramatic...

Until a couple of months ago. I don't exactly know what the cause of my acne was at first. I knew it couldn't be my foundation, blushes, bronzers, cleansers, etc. because I had been using them for a few months and I never had a problem with them. I tried to think of what I had changed in my beauty routine that was causing the problem...

Finally, I figured out that it was because I wasn't cleaning my face properly. I wasn't getting all the makeup off before going to bed at night. Instead of washing my face twice, once to get the makeup off and a second time to actually clean my face, I only washed my face once, then I moisturized. Big, no no for my skin! It let me know by breaking out on my chin, my cheeks, my nose, in between my eyebrows, etc. It was terrible. I couldn't even cover it up with my foundation.

So, I did some researching trying to figure out how to fix this problem. I looked at home remedies, You Tube, read product reviews, etc. So, I bought the Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam. It had great reviews and many successful stories, so I decided to give it a try. After about a few weeks of using it, my acne got worse. New ones formed  and I had to stop using it.

I didn't want to spend any more money on products, so I turned to home remedies. I read about garlic being able to help, apple cider vinegar, and lemons. So, I gave lemons a try, along with Clean and Clear Advantage Spot Treatment. My beauty routine consisted of me washing my face twice, applying a toner, my moisturizer, then applying lemon juice on my pimples, letting it dry for 10-15 minutes, then applying the Clean and Clear Advantage Spot Treatment, letting it soak in for 10-15 minutes, then finall reapplying lemon juice on my pimples. I saw results within a week! I was so amazed. I still have some acne, but I can tell it's really clearing up, the more I use this beauty routine.
