As many of our long term followers know, I am IN LOVE with witch hazel and tea tree oil. I find any and every excuse to use it because it leaves my skin feeling clean, clear and gorgeous…not to mention blemish and bump free.
I use it in my facial spray, face masks, to reduce razor burn and so many other skincare related things. I truly did not think the combination could get better until I discovered active charcoal. [Keep Reading]
It feels like it’s been ages since I talked about acne with you, so I decided it was time the topic made a reappearance. This may also have something to do with the fact that I woke up with 2 big spots on my face, located in the most obscure area of my cheek.
As I was inspecting these bad boys in the mirror, I couldn’t help but notice a few acne scars. While I’ve been pretty damn lucky to never have serious acne, I’ve definitely had my fair share. Being a picker (is this getting TMI?…Sorrrrrrry!) I never let them be, so needless to say I have a few scars.
To make a rather long and boring story short, I decided it was high time I even those suckers out. I’m pretty good about my skincare routine. I exfoliate regularly and do routine at home microdermabrasion treatments, but these weren’t exactly doing the trick. Being the ever clever DIY diva, I took to the interwebs to conduct some research.

Acne is one of the most frustrating skin issues we have to deal with. Now, we all know that certain behavior and habits can cause acne to be worse, but today we’re talking about a cause we truly have no control over; hormones.
That’s right, during puberty, pregnancy or even when we are highly stressed out, our hormones can wreak absolute havoc on our skin. So how can we make the most of a bad situation? [Keep Reading]
When it comes to acne, it seems there are a million and one ways to treat it.
You can treat it by eating certain foods or cutting some out all together, using acne face masks, spot treatments or balancing your hormone and stress levels.
Now, I’ve tried many a DIY acne treatment in my day, but none that seemed as crazy as this concept. What is it I’m talking about?
What if I told you to do nothing to your face.
When I say do nothing, I mean, don’t even wash your face. In fact, rarely let water grace your face at all. [Keep Reading]

Acne sucks. There, I said it. You know it, I know it, heck even the acne knows it!
Yet it’s a skin condition that continues to blight us, even when we leave behind our teenage selves and think we just might be getting closer to being an adult.
Wait, maybe I’m being too harsh, could acne be telling us something about our health that we shouldn’t ignore?
Yes, your facial acne could actually be telling you something about the general health of your body. [Keep Reading]

Remember the situation when you just woke up one morning and couldn’t figure out why your face had become your worst enemy overnight, bursting with pimples and acne?
Yes, I’m sure we’ve all been there. And then we rush to the nearby store, spend money on skin cleansers, masks and what not, but still, little or nothing changes—our skin is still full of red spots.
Well, perhaps many of us have been barking up the wrong tree.
Now, certainly there are things we cannot change, such as genetics, but there are some everyday habits that can easily be avoided. Like food. Or more specifically, foods that cause acne.
But before we get into that, let’s stop for a moment and consider some facts about acne… [Keep Reading]

I had terrible acne for almost 15 years. Then one summer, I cleared it for good. And it was ‘effing awesome!
One problem though: The scars.
Really!? Really??!! I suffered with acne for fifteen years only to clear it and be stuck with these terrible marks on my face? I was so upset.
That being said—part of my journey to clear my acne involved using food to clear my skin. I drank a ton of green juices, added in five thousand veggies a day (not really, but kinda), stopped eating gluten, dairy, meats (plus a few other things) and my skin freaking bloomed.
So naturally, when I was looking for acne scars home remedies, I looked to food first. [Keep Reading]
