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…
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.
Murad Clarifying Cleanser is great for those aggressive breakouts
SkinCare by Loty Chamomile Facial Cleanser is great for moderate breakouts
Primitive Botanicals Cahaya Foaming Wash is great for when my skin is healing and needs to refresh
I use all three… I love love toners!

The brands that I recommend are from SOO AE, TonyMoly and Kocostar. Can be purchased at the following locations: Walmart, Target, Ulta, Amazon and Forever 21.
Clixit Acne Eraser is one of the best acne spot treatment in the market and I have been using this product for more than a month and I promise you will see your pimples/redness start to disappear. Do not pop those pimples!
These are fun masks that moisturize your skin and gives you the spa experience. Check out La Fontaine Cosmetics for more details on these Gold masks.
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!” 🙂
