Makeup & Skincare Chat ➔ SKIN CARE
Tasha: I don’t wanna blow this whistle too early, so *knocks on wood*, but I went back to my Doterra skin care after baby. Now, after both previous babies, I’d get big hormonal acne for a week or 2, always. I didn’t have Doterra then and I’d use Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Olay acne stuff, or sensitive and acne spot treatments. It was ok, never great. THIS time however, nothing near as bad!
Now, at first I did the face wash and toner in this kit and added a drop of Doterra e.o. Juniper Berry to to doTERRA HD Clear Facial Lotion every night after a shower. Worked great. Then I stopped the Juniper Berry, for no real reason, I’m just lazy, I guess and continued the face wash, toner and HD lotion and used the spot treatment whenever one popped up. That’s always worked just ok for me.
I did the spa treatment face mask from there one night when things were really starting to flare up. Worked like a dream! But, ever since my 2nd child, so about 4 years now, I’ve had a patch on 1 cheek of redness. It’s mostly always flat, drier there I think, and occasional flares with the heat or something irritates it and it’s a good day when it fades to almost unnoticeable. I’ve not gone the the dermatologist for it yet and I bought the foundation recently and beauty blender to cover it.
Now, here’s the good part…in the face wash kit you get the wash, toner, scrub (I forgot to mention I use this a couple times a week also now), lotion (I LOVE this lotion the most, but I’m being overly cautious with my face right now) and now a skin tightening serum that wasn’t available when I bought previously. I don’t typically use age defying things or tighteners ever Bc they make me break out and I think they’re useless (I’m 30 yet ) But, I tried it before my moisturizer a couple days ago and the redness is GONE!! I so hope it stays that way, something in it must’ve calmed it.
