That I suffered from adult acne is no secret. I’ve been blogging about it for over a year now. It started when I stopped taking in concatreptive pills (I had really good skin when I was taking it though). I guess it has to do with messing up the hormones. ^_^ I’ve been to dermatologists, aestheticians and I’ve tried a lot of cleansers, antibiotics and whatever gives just to stop it. And like you know it didn’t. It was something from the inside so I just had to be patient.
It was so depressing. At one point I visited another dermatologist near our place and she gave me an antibiotic, Dalacin, to be exact and it was then that the acne stopped. After a week or so, there aren’t any new pimples coming out and I was really grateful. In order to continue the progress I used Body shop’s Tea tree oil cleanser line. They are as follows:
1. Blackhead Exfoliating Wash
-Keeps skin clear and soft with a creamy facial scrub that is specially formulated to help unclog pores by gently exfoliating to remove trapped dirt, oil and dead skin cells.
-Aromatic lemon tea tree and Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya contain properties that help fight blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.
-Crushed apricot stones and silica mildly and effectively exfoliate skin.
2. Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
-Prevents blemishes and remove excess oil with a refreshing gel-bashed facial wash that won’t over-dry your skin and is gentle enough for daily use.
– Lemon tea tree and Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya contain properties that help fight blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.
– Tamanu oil from Madagascar has a soothing effect and helps to calm irritation and redness.
3. Skin Clearing Toner
-Tones skin, refreshing toner that removes traces of cleanser, make-up and impurities while leaving skin looking matte.
-Lemon tea tree and Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya contain properties that help fight blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.
-Tamanu oil from Madagascar has a soothing effect and helps to calm irritation and redness.
-Corn starch powder mattifies the skin.
4. Tea Tree Oil
– A medicine cabinet must. A pre-blended oil which can be used in many different ways to help soothe blemished skin. Dab directly onto skin at first sign of a blemish.
I also have the face mask but I can’t find it as of presstime. ^_^ So far, I’m really happy with this line and would be using them regularly.
P.S. What may be effective for me may not be the same for you, please still consult your derma.
