what can be causing your Acne using Face Mapping
Face mapping has been used to track acne and health problems for hundreds of years in China. It may seem unbelievable, but the acne face maps can really help you take control of your skin and health. Face mapping is used to break down each part of the skin on the face, and help you determine what dysfunctions or health problems may be causing your acne. Forehead
Upper Forehead- Breakouts below the hairline usually indicate digestive issues with your large intestine. This could be caused by a poor diet or inflammation. High levels of toxin buildup can cause breakouts and acne.Treat- try consuming more antioxidants, avoid eating processed foods, and drink more water.
Lower Forehead- Breakouts right above the brow line are linked to stress, depression, and feeling anxious.Eyebrows=Liver- Breakouts around and between the eyebrows are usually indicative of liver issues and poor blood circulation. Drinking too much alcohol and eating too much processed foods stresses your liver out. Treat- Try to be more active and exercise more often to help with blood circulation. Alcohol and processed foods should be consumed in moderation. Nose= Heart- Breakouts on and around the nose are usually indicative towards cardiovascular health.

Is This $495 Skincare Device Worth It?
Okay so let's be realistic, no one needs a $495 skincare device. It's totally excessive and absolutely not necessary for healthy skin! But if you're going to spend that much money on a device is it worth it? I've had my ZIIP - ZIIP GX for 10 months, I don't use it as consitently as I should. It's a nanocurrent device, like it's cousin microcurrent, it needs to be done consistently to achieve lasting results. Which brings me to point one, if you can't commit to using it at least three times a week for a minimum of five minutes it's not going to be worth it. This is if you are looking for anti-aging properties only, I use the other treatments and anti-aging isn't my number on priority at 25. If you are only looking for a toning and sculpting tool, then this may not be worth it. There are just as effective microcurrent tools for less money that will give you this result! Unlike those other tools the ZIIP can also help treat acne and pigmentation issues, this is my favorite feature. So why is it worth it? Well the app that it works in conjunction with has many different treatments to help you achieve your goals! The brands Instagram also has IGTV routines that utilizes the treatments for different goals too, so there are many many options. The conductive gels are also a major plus! They have ingredients that are good for your skin, unlike some other conductive gels from different brands. They stay hydrated throughout the entire treatment and then some, and can even be used as a mask! I use both the ZIIP - Golden Conductive Gel and ZIIP - Silver Conductive Gel , each has a different goal. Golden gel fills and firms the skin, Silver gel brightens and moisturizes. Overall, no you don't need the ZIIP and it might not be worth the almost $500 for you. But for me, I love mine. I would repurchase it and I would recommend it! It does what it says it will - shapes the face, drains excess fluid, tones, lifts, targets pigmentation, and fights acne. #CheriePartner

Spots Be Gone!
Ingredient: Saw palmetto Product: Origins Spot Remover I rarely get pimples and I’m thankful enough that I didn’t suffer from acne when I was a teenaged girl. Although sometimes, especially if it’s that time of the month, I get the occasional hormonal pimple. They aren’t bad though, they come in small and usually go away after a week or so. There are some instances, however, when these small pimples leave a nasty mark on my face. I learned from a friend that I should use a spot corrector when I have these pimples so they won’t leave any mark after. I used to have The Body Shop’s tea tree spot corrector a few years back to treat the exact same issue. I came across this product when I was shopping for the iconic Origins masks. I thought to myself, maybe I’ll throw in this small spot corrector in my cart. And I’m glad I did. I’ve used this twice since I bought it due to the aforementioned occasional pimples. I noticed that my pimple had left my face earlier than the usual duration. It went away after about 2 days; normally, they stay on my face for about a week or sometimes longer depending on the size of the zit. This product is my go-to now when I have the once-a-month zit. Definitely recommend it to anyone experiencing zits too.
EMPTY - my favorite pimple patches 😍
I’m going to be completely honest with you guys. I get a LOT of pimples, zits, blemishes, cystic acne, ETC. So I go through a lot of pimple patches and I’ve tried SO MANY at this point. The PEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots are some of the most powerful patches I’ve used! But first—let me explain what pimple patches are used for. So, obviously, they are meant to treat pimples. The “patches” are actually very small hydrocolloid bandages which are used in the medical field to absorb excess liquid from beneath the skin without actually breaking the skin or leaving a scar. There are two types of pimple patches—hydrocolloid bandages as I mentioned above, and HEALING patches which are usually infused with tea tree or calendula oils to help accelerate the healing process for healing breakouts. The Peace Out Dots are hydrocolloid bandages so they won’t do much on scabs or red spots. These are THICK—meaning I would recommend wearing them at night as they are very hard to conceal under makeup and when they work, it’s OBVIOUS—see photos. My experience with these patches has been amazing. With other brands I usually need to use 2-4 patches to fully absorb a bad pimple, but with these babies I usually only have to use one, sometimes 2 if it’s a cystic spot. Price-wise, these are on the expensive side at $32 for 40 patches. If my pimple is small enough though, I cut the patches in half to conserve them. I think they are more than worth it and in the long run I’m using less dots because these stop the spread of acne causing bacteria. I have to rate these 5 out of 5 because I can always rely on them. _____________________________ 2nd photo—chin zit before patch.
