Face oil suggestion

Another topic I like to talk about is face oils. Face oils can be incredibly beneficial for your skin without weighting it down. I like to use some of them as daily “moisture seal” because oils lock up moisture in your skin and make it smooth and hydrated.

Jojoba oil (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B01E7MCWFW/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B01E7MCWFW&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=9943538e9463e6290941d9edc36ab5c4)
Not only is jojoba an incredibly lightweight and breathable oil (making it great for combination skin that still needs some moisture), but, because jojoba actually breaks down and dissolves sebum, it'll also help control your shine.

Rosehip Oil(https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B004RGIPT6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B004RGIPT6&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=528830e63c8f9a85093a00694ce794fb)
When you want to treat irritated, angry, red, acne prone ski. The oil deeply hydrates skin (without suffocating your pores) with fatty acids that also fade acne scars and reduce redness.

Argan Oil(https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B004RG9WBQ/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B004RG9WBQ&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=e5f5df4f43442d7a547a275f7bbb71d3)
It’s rich and soothing, it sinks in quickly, and it’s incredibly high in vitamin E—an antioxidant that helps prevent skin damage, dark spots, and fine lines by blocking environmental damage. This oil is the best for “normal” skin type.

Aloe Vera Oil(https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B07SBWB77Q/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B07SBWB77Q&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=3a104e61a5230c7c2c893f0bcef9838c)
Aloe oil is filled with anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, but it also has the added bonus of being a natural antibacterial and astringent, making it a powerhouse for sensitive skin that’s also oily or acne-prone.

Coconut oil(https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B013JOSM1C/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B013JOSM1C&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=a0297670f8dcc63f6efeb78d5cd0684c)
If you need something that takes off your makeup in seconds Coconut oil is the best for it. If you wear waterproof makeup on daily basis your skin, eye area can get irritated very easily. Take a small amount on your fingertips and massage your lashes (eye area). Makeup melts in just a moment. Be careful because it might clog your pores a little.


Everyone can find the PERFECT face oil for them. I personally love to use my skin tools with oils. My recommendation is face roller (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B07NLB4GHN/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B07NLB4GHN&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=07a69629d693f95ea1fae0ad548335d8)
Put few drops in you hands, warm up the oils a bit with your body temperature and then apply to your skin. Massage your face 5-10 minutes with face roller and watch your skin glow.

My successful skincare for acne prone skin

Hi 
After years of struggling with my skin I finally found few products that cleared my skin almost completely.
My skin type is “normal” with oily t-zone and acne prone areas. I struggle with eczema around my mouth and sometimes on my eyelids. I get hormonal acne one week before my cycle and this routine helped me to get it under control.


 

I order everything on Amazon (I’ll add all links). Overall it’s cheaper than buying it in stores and I always get my products in 3-4 days.


 

  1. The first product is African black soap by Dudu-Osun (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B000OOCLAY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B000OOCLAY&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=11f6744fc8a91d1a9ac5d3f02bd4d659 )
    I use it twice a day am and pm
    It cleared my skin incredibly fast and I could see a difference in less than one week
    Your skin might feel tight after using but the next products I’ll share will help with that
     
  2. After soap I use Neutrogena Ultra SHEER SPF (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B002JAYMEE/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B002JAYMEE&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=5634098711b442576582b2a82d313771 )
    It’s very important to protect your skin everyday 
    I use it as daily moisturiser and spf in one 
    Doesn’t break me out and it soaks in very fast
     
  3. On day when I want more moisture I use Jojoba oil (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B004RGO8GU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B004RGO8GU&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=a1d5c89fb7cd66e5f8d6dd64ead12d2c )
    It locks in moisture in the skin 
    It’s light on the skin and heals acne scars 
    I prefer to apply this before sleep because I’ll make your skin shiny 
     
  4. Another incredibly important products is Tea tree oil (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B00Z72E5XY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B00Z72E5XY&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=5da13c74398b96af56391b0c31c492e8 )
    I mix few drops with my moisturiser when I feel like my skin is getting little bit worse 
    Don’t use it very often because it could make your skin sensitive 
     
  5. Last step is Indian healing clay mask (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B079FH6RCK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B079FH6RCK&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=cf4335ebd117563ce474206ddf37b22f )
    I apply this mask once a week mixed with apple cider vinegar 
    Leave it for 10 minutes only because I have sensitive skin 
    Take it off with soaked towel in warm water 
     
  6. Last product I’d suggest is Face roller (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B07NLB4GHN/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3638&creative=24630&creativeASIN=B07NLB4GHN&linkCode=as2&tag=trytomakeface-21&linkId=bc8a8746cec8c853f5d2868705c68a64 )
    This step is optional but I found it makes my products soak into my skin like a dream 
    Apply your moisturiser and than massage your face with face roller
    It helps with blood circulation and makes your products go into deeper layers of your skin
    I’d suggest to keep roller in fridge


 


 

This routine helped to clear my skin in around three weeks. Sometimes I still get some small pimples but these products help me heal them very fast.

I hope this helps someone and if you purchase any of these products let me know how you like them in my DMs.
Good luck and don’t give up on your skin.
