As humans, it is our nature that our endurance level is either sparse or limited, which is why we want everything to work miraculously with the blink of an eye. Take acne for instance – women skip through treatments to treatments as a hope that they might find a genie inside a skincare product, which would magically vanish their zits in a night so and grant them with a flawless skin the next morning.
People take acne more personally than they should – from locking oneself inside the room and awkwardly hiding face behind their hands every now and then to constantly looking at reflection in the mirror and wish that all the zits would automatically disappear depicts how terrible acne makes us feel.

Sick of zits? Us too!
And apparently so is the rest of the world because the industry continues to come out with even more products.
Now, let me preface this all by saying that we’ve reviewed Exposed Acne Treatment before (check it here!) and thought it was a pretty bomb product.
But we wanted to dive a little deeper and give you even more insight into what this product has to offer. Because let’s be real for a second — ain’t nobody got time for zits. [Keep Reading]

It seems like a crazy idea to slather sticky honey on your skin or pour beer on your hair. People will either think you’re into some kind of weird experiment or that you’ve lost your mind.
But you shouldn’t care about what people think as long as you know what you’re doing, right?
These strange, but surprisingly effective beauty fixes will resolve some of the most common beauty issues that you have. [Keep Reading]
Dry skin sucks and as we all know, so does acne. Unfortunately, many of the most common acne solutions contain harsh ingredients that suck the hydration from you skin.
So riddle me this – if you already have dry skin and are putting skin-drying products on it, how the heck do you expect to have glowing, gorgeous skin?
If you’re scratching your head in confusion at this predicament too, then you are not alone. As someone who has silently suffered with fairly dry skin for my entire life, this question has plagued me.
Thankfully, my DIY prowess has led me to the discovery of an awesome DIY face mask recipe that not only combats pimples, but is safe for your dry skin. [Keep Reading]
I hate acne. It’s incredible that something as small as a zit can kill your morning buzz. What always irked me the most about a breakout was how hard concealing it was. Half the time I tried to hide a zit I just made it stand out more and the other half I gave up.
If that wasn’t bad enough, I can’t tell you how many time I saw chicks trying (and failing….HARD) to cover their acne by using the complete wrong concealer and caking it over their face, but leaving their neck bare. Umm, obvious much?
The good news is, after years of failing myself I finally discovered a fool proof way for how to conceal acne the right way. Interested to learn more? Keep reading then! [Keep Reading]
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]
