My Favorite Skincare Products

Hello My Lillys!

I remember at the tender age of 12 years old having the most disgusting pimple and my Tio Luis shouted, “Patricia, welcome to PIMPLE WORLD!” I was devastated and it became a curse.  Now, I am 35 still at times struggling with acne due to weather changes, hormones, stress, eating unhealthy, or even working out.  I have been very fortunate due to blogging that many companies want to help me with my acne prone skin and I have been educated on how to improve my skin and to prevent it from crazy breakouts.

Here is a BEFORE picture that I posted on Instagram back in 2016 and you can see my pores were very large, a lot of acne scares.  This is a reminder on my hearth ache of living with acne prone skin but let me tell you prayers and having a teachable spirit works.

One of my readers encouraged me to show my face without make-up. I am a woman that has struggled with acne due to stress and hormonal changes. Big pores and lines around my mouth when I smile. I have always wanted to produce the best when I post pictures, so therefore I always was glamed up. Today is the day I show my bare skin. Here is ME… Taking the challenge NO MAKE-UP. This is out of my comfort zone but I Love me. God made you beautiful… #bluelillypad #nomakeup #nofilter #beautycare #beautiful #beauty #acnescars #iamstillbeautifulwithoutmakeup #makeupblogger #makeup #skincare #skin ##skinfood #bigpores #fashionblogger #fashionista #godisgood #acceptingme #paleskin #browneyes #sexy #pretty #vegan #christianblogger #jesuslover #vegetarian #healthy #healthyskin #bareskin

Here is a picture I took two weeks ago. My pores are not as large, my skin is tighter, and I still having scaring and redness but its not as bad as it used to be  and it usually goes away in 3-4 months after a break out thanks to sunscreen.  Now little by little I am taking dairy out of my diet, drinking more water, cleaning my skin two to three times a day, using serums and so much more I finally found a skincare regime that works for me.

The steps to wanting healthy skin is pretty easy…

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Moisturize

Also, twice a week use masks for whatever your skin needs and if you have acne prone skin like myself find a good acne spot treatment. Lastly, invest on seeing a esthetician once a month and I recommend my friend Loty McClain.

SkinCare Tools

I encourage that you invest in purchasing a LED light and a derma roller.  Here are two links that talk about the benefits on the LED Light Mask and Derma Roller.

I am very thankful that I finally found something that works for my skin and I feel much more confident.  Investing on skincare is much more important than shopping for clothing or make up.

“Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle!” 🙂

XOXO,
