Until then, I have a tip for the day~
Tip #3... Blemish control the (cheap) natural way!
Though it is not house related at all, I suspect that we can all use a helpful hint when it comes to blemish control! Yes, the dreaded blemish, pimple, zit, what ever you want call them... I have finally come across a great, effective, cheap remedy.
LEMONS! You heard me right, lemons! If you are having difficulty with breakouts or just the occasional blemish I highly recommend trying lemons. It is a simple enough process, cheap too (I have my own lemon tree so for me it was free), but lemons at Target this am were .22 ea so even if you have to buy one it is VERY reasonable. Here is the process:
1. Wash your face
2. Pat dry
3. Take a slice of lemon and rub in a circular motion over your face. OR
Dip a cotton ball in lemon juice and apply to your face.
4. Wait 10 minutes and rinse your face with water.
5. Apply moisturizer or makeup as usual...
Here are the benefits:
1. Lemons decrease redness naturally
2. Lemons dry out blemishes naturally
3. Lemons lighten dark spots naturally
4. Lemons improve skin condition naturally
AND Believe it or not, lemons are not drying to the skin!
I am NO doctor, esthetician, or dermatologist... but I have been to all of them. I have tried prescription medication, prescription topical lotions, gels, and solutions. I have made numerous over the counter attempts and nothing has given me a result that I could see within a day! With the exception of using a good old, God made lemon!
So, if you have issues with blemishes give it a try. Nothing ventured nothing gained. It may sting a little, but you can fan your face it and that will help. Or just suck it up... It is definitely worth it!
