Miracle Skin Care System *Update*

Apple Cider Vinegar- Miracle Skin Care SystemLast fall I posted my Miracle Skin Care Routine and I was recently talking about it with one of my students (hi GC!).  It occurred to me that it’s probably time to give y’all an update.  Yes, I am still using apple cider vinegar to cleanse my face.  When I wrote about it last fall I didn’t think it could get any better, but it DID! My skin is still clean and soft!  For the first time in my entire life I have clear skin! The Mr. even agrees with me, that my skin is better now than it was when we were in college.  It seems like a little thing to be thankful about, but I don’t care; I still am so thankful!

I have incorporated a few more things into my routine that I want to share with you:DSC_0335

  • First to remove my makeup, especially eye makeup, I use extra virgin olive oil on a cotton ball. Yes, this comes from the same bottle I use for the kitchen, I just put it in a little 3 oz. bottle I got from Target.
  • To moisturize my face, I no longer use moisturizer per se.  Instead I use coconut oil; a little bit goes a long way (Yes, again another kitchen product in my bathroom).
  • Of course I still will have a hormonal flare up here and there (typical regions for hormonal flare-ups are on the lower cheek/jaw line and chin). To quickly, and painlessly, clear-up a break-out, I dab a little Tea Tree Essential Oil on the area of interest 2x a day.  The Tea Tree EO will clear up a break-out within 24-48 hours.

I know you must be thinking, “She just added 3 different oils to her face!” You’re right, I do.  And get this: my skin is naturally oily!  I was skeptical at first too, but the types of oils I’m adding are good for my skin so I don’t over dry or over moisturize my skin.  The Tea Tree EO is actually more of a drying oil, and coconut oil & EVOO are too large to seep into my pores.  So all three of these oils are beneficial for my skin without clogging up my pores (non-comedogenic). 

So there ya go, my face system updates that I’ve been using for over a year now to keep my skin healthy and clear. 

What are y’all using to keep your skin clear?

Do you have kitchen products on the cosmetic shelf in your bathroom?

EVOO works as a makeup remover?! I am so trying this tonight. I have a soap that works now on my crazy mascara but would love a natural alternative. Thanks for the tip!
