7-Day Acne Zap Plan.
So, the past seven days have been a personal pursuit of getting my skin back to normal after an acne breakout* last Wednesday- and I’ve succeeded!
Why it happened: 1) Too much of a good thing is bad: applied a detox mask two nights in a row after a long sun-filled vaca. 2) Over-indulged in hearty, nightly dinners cooked by my Ray** 3) Stress from lack of sleep? Yes.
How I got my skin back to its normal, acne-free complexion: 1) Sprinted to the nearest day spa to get a 90 Minute Deep Cleansing Facial, with extractions and all. It opened up my pores, cleansed, and revived my skin- I felt great, was glowing. 2) Watched my diet and eating habits, also made sure to drink LOTS of water. 3) Bought all types of cucumbers at Mitsuwa***, to slice and place on my face as a natural toner every other night before bed. Softens and calms your skin, smells fresh, even ate some as I cut.****
My seven day breakout frenzy is now over!
*The breakout on my forehead was definitely correlated to my digestive system, as I’ve read.
**Ah, his hot wings! So good, but oh so bad.
***Love Mitsuwa in NJ, great Japanese products.
****A bite out of a cucumber immediately cuts unhealthy cravings!
